Best/safest Neighborhood in Buenos Aires 4 nights

Recommended Posts

Would appreciate tips on the best/safest neighborhood to stay for 4 nights pre-cruise in Buenos Aires. Interested in art, architecture, tango, and great local food and wine. Thanks!

Stayed 3 days @ Tanguero Hotel Boutique, Suipacha 780. Very convenient w/ breakfast for less than US$80 per night. Close to ATM, restaurants, etc. Cabs cheap. Great meal Santos Manjares*, Steakhouse, Paraguay 938

Took 3 tours from BASAS4U, city tour, Tango show & Estancia tour all w/ pu & return to hotel. Also did a "free" walking tour.

Loved BA & felt safe.

We're staying at an airbnb post-cruise in Recoleta.  Here's a Vogue article about it.

And that cemetery is amazing...even if Evita Peron weren't buried there.  We spent a couple of days in BA last year pre-Patagonia and Antarctica trip so are really looking forward to going back.

We stayed at the 4Seasons and Hyatt both in Recoleta area and always felt ok.

Did a lot of walking No Jewelry my husband was told to take off his gold medic alert by a cab driver.

We felt very safe.  Five nights in town, lots of walking about.

 

We never travel with expensive jewelry.  Does not matter where we are going.  Cruises or otherwise.  I have a 'travel' watch. DW only takes a small amount of costume jewelry.

We returned this March to Buenos Aires.  We were also there in 2015.  The number of homeless people has definitely increased.

 

In 2015 we stayed in a boutique hotel in Recoleta.  This past trip we stayed at the Alvear Art Hotel, and given the rates, I thought it was over-priced for what it was.  But the art collection was lovely.
