In downtown Buenos Aires, a short walk from historic landmarks, government buildings, and shops
The 725 Continental Hotel is located in downtown Buenos Aires (also known as Microcentro), close to many of the city's main historical, commercial, and cultural highlights.
Microcentro is the central business district of Buenos Aires. Originally settled by the Europeans in the 16th century, the area still reflects its Italian and French influences through its buildings' unique and classic architecture. The government palace known as Casa Rosada, the bustling Florida street lined with shops, and the historic monument of El Obelisco are just a few of the many attractions found here. Public transportation includes buses and underground trains that are convenient and efficient, although usually crowded.
The 725 Continental Hotel was built in 1927 and features a dramatic Art Deco exterior. Inside, however, the vibe is modern and minimalist, with sleek furnishings and a neutral color palette punched up by pops of color throughout. Most of the 192 guest rooms are spacious, and all include dark hardwood floors, marble bathrooms, and large windows that let in plenty of natural light. Freebies include Wi-Fi and a daily breakfast buffet. Highlights include a tiny terrace solarium and two restaurants that serve local specialties in chic surroundings. The hotel also offers a prime downtown location that is convenient, but might be too noisy for some guests.
