Near a system of parks and plazas in La Recoleta, a safe and upscale neighborhood in central Buenos Aires
The Ayres de Recoleta Plaza is located in one of the safest and most upscale neighborhoods in central Buenos Aires, La Recoleta. It is within walking distance of numerous plazas and parks, as well as museums, restaurants, and shops. Still, most attractions are not within walking distance and taking a cab is required.
Residential La Recoleta attracts locals and tourists alike with its beautiful marble buildings and numerous boutiques. 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.
Though many visitors come to the area to shop, the neighborhood is also home to major attractions like the National Library, a handful of art museums, and some interesting art galleries.
Located in the upscale neighborhood of La Recoleta, the Recoleta Plaza hotel offers 38 apartment-like rooms with a modern minimalist vibe. Studios have sleek lines created by the earth-toned furniture and are equipped with glass-enclosed kitchenettes, large flat-screen TVs, and balconies. On the higher floors, balconies offer great views over Recoleta cemetery but on the lower floors, some guests complain of street noise. This hotel is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and museums, but most major sites require a cab. While there is a fee for Wi-Fi in the room, perks include a fitness room and outdoor pool surrounded by a chic wooden terrace for lounging.
