Bottom Line

This upper-middle-range business hotel has the standard amenities of other hotels of its category, including a tiny rooftop pool and a small fitness center, plus a couple of great freebies (such as Wi-Fi and hot breakfast), but there's no full restaurant or parking on-site. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, and have an elegant but somewhat dated decor, and some bathrooms are a bit cramped.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of La Recoleta, an upscale and safe neighborhood in central Buenos Aires, close to great shopping and fine dining

The Americas Towers is located smack-dab in the heart of one of the most upscale and safest neighborhoods in central Buenos Aires, La Recoleta. It is one block from 9 de Julio Avenue, the city’s main thoroughfare, and a two-minute walk to great shopping and dining on Santa Fe Avenue.

Residential La Recoleta is one of Buenos Aires' grand dames, with marble buildings and top-notch boutiques lining busy streets full of locals and tourists alike. Alvear Avenue is one of the main thoroughfares in the area, and has some of the most beautiful Parisian-style apartment buildings in the neighborhood, including a couple of magnificent palaces.

But it's not all about shopping here -- the neighborhood is home to major attractions like the National Library, a handful of art museums, and some interesting art galleries. However, you'll have to take a cab to move around because there's little to no public transportation available in this area.

  • 11-minute drive to Jorge Newbery Airport
  • 38-minute drive to Ezeiza International Airport
  • 7-minute walk to historic Colon Theater
  • 5-minute drive to Calle Florida, a main shopping area
  • 10-minute drive to Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace
  • 10-minute drive to the Metropolitan Cathedral
  • 10-minute drive to lively Plaza Dorrego, complete with a wonderful antiques market on Sundays
  • 10-minute drive to the Obelisk, one of the most recognizable sights in Buenos Aires
  • 15-minute drive to popular San Telmo Market
  • 15-minute drive to the Museum of Modern Art
  • 15-minute drive to Puerto Madero, full of bars and restaurants
  • 20-minute drive to the Boca Juniors stadium
  • 20-minute drive to iconic Caminito, a colorful neighborhood

 Bottom Line

This upper-middle-range business hotel has the standard amenities of other hotels of its category, including a tiny rooftop pool and a small fitness center, plus a couple of great freebies (such as Wi-Fi and hot breakfast), but there's no full restaurant or parking on-site. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, and have an elegant but somewhat dated decor, and some bathrooms are a bit cramped. Its central location in the heart of elegant La Racoleta neighborhood is hard to beat.
