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.
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.
