In La Recoleta, a safe and upscale neighborhood in central Buenos Aires
The CasaSur Art Hotel is located in La Recoleta, one of the safest and most upscale neighborhoods in central Buenos Aires. It is within walking distance of several museums, shops, and restaurants, but most sites will require a cab ride.
Residential La Recoleta attracts tourists and locals alike with its marble buildings and top-notch 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, as well as a couple of magnificent palaces.
Aside from great shops, the neighborhood is also home to major attractions like the National Library, a handful of art museums, and some interesting art galleries.
On an attractive, tree-lined street in the La Recoleta neighborhood, the CasaSur Art Hotel is a luxe, boutique property with 36 rooms. Decor is sleek with modern furniture and dark hardwood floors. Comfortable rooms have thoughtful touches of technology, including iPod docks and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. While bathrooms are relatively small, they are sophisticated with marble vanities and glass walk-in showers. The highlight of CasaSur is an upscale spa complete with Jacuzzi, and the hotel also offers its own restaurant serving food inspired by India and the Mediterranean.
