We were about ready to leave Buenos Aires when we came across this gem of a hotel. After checking in, we decided to extend our stay in the city. The location is excellent and the staff could not have been more friendly and hospitable. You will feel like you are staying with friends instead of a hotel. We hope to...

This gay owned and operated hotel is a true gem. It is beautiful old building. The staff is really helpful and friendly, the location is great. Clubs and bars are a short taxi/metro ride away. There are tango lessons on the roof top. Definitely would go back there!

It is always good to climb the stairs to find the warm and welcoming staff amist the energy of San Telmo. A very special place that upon returning gives a 'coming home' experience. Good access to anywhere and the Sunday Market is at the doorstep. Typically find other guests to be friendly and sincere. A treat to be in this...

Lugar Gay is one of the best gay guesthouses world-wide. Situated very central in San Telmo. Everyting in Buenos Aires is easily reachable from there. Their nice idea is a happy hour in the early evening. It is not important to get their free drinks and snacks - the most important thing is that you can get in touch with...

Been there 3 times with my husband over the last 7 years. It is always very friendly, feels like Nito, Xavier and Santo are like best friends. Place is spotless and super well located. And as always we meet people. Don't miss Nito's happy hour. Will go back again soon. Pierre and Nick xxx

A friend and I stayed here and really enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and helpful - the rooms are comfortable and clean - and the location is fantastic for the weekend San Telmo fairs. Yes, there are a lot of stairs and the breakfast isn't gourmet, but for the price you pay to stay at this B&B, it is...

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.
