We spend 2 nights at Hotel Babel. The room was nice, a little loud, but that's ok for the centre of a big town. At the day of our departure we had problems with our flight and Ra - a new guy at the reception - helped us a lot by calling the south american airline, because they didn't speak...

I have to admit that my first impression of this hotel, arriving late at night, wasn't overwhelmingly positive. However, with daylight and a necessary room change due to a missing air con remote, I found its charm. It is indeed an older building with character. The rooms have some nice shelving which is helpful in controlling luggage explosions. There was...

Comfortable place in a great location. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating and the rooms were clean and tidy. Definitely a good option if you're looking for a stay in San Telmo! They provide a basic breakfast, good reliable wifi.

I didn't get to stay here due to my booking not going through, but can't rate the welcome and help I got from Jose, at reception, highly enough. Thanks so much. Avoid using 7ideas, a company offering great rates on Trip Advisor - they're trouble.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and I can't fault it. The staff are so friendly and helped with recommendations and other bookings (buses, taxis, shows etc). The atmosphere is chilled, the San Telmo location is perfect (walkable to La Boca and Microcentro), the rooms are a decent size, breakfast is adequate, the hotel is really nicely...

Loved this place! It's a smaller type of hotel, so I feel it's more private and cozy than normal big hotels that you may be used to. It's somehow a combination between classic and modern design which I really liked. And the staff is super friendly and knowledgable, and they were ready to assist me with any doubts I had....

Hotel is well located and near Defensa. Facility looks old especially the door lock, which we find difficulty locking/unlocking. Heater in certain room was not working. Electric power tripped a few times during our stay. Bottled water is not provided and it cost 25 peso for a small bottle.

Stayed here for two nights in February. Our first visit to BA was made memorable by the friendly and helpful Miguel and Lauro. They gave us helpful hints on enjoying BA as a local which is why we travel. Rooms were clean & spacious, beds comfortable, breakfast adequate for us and it was quiet. Internet connection was good in the...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
