We saw Operación Nocturna here a couple of weeks ago and thought the theatre, tucked behind a lovely, bright working café, was fab. Bigger than you’d expect (we expected SMALL) and shows are quite different and unique. Great place to see some independent theatre. Café good too, decent prices and great brownies!
Plaza Almagro: Place of Interest: Anyone wanting to explore ‘the real Buenos Aires’ could easily spend a pleasant few hours wandering the streets of Almagro, an interesting middle-class neighborhood in the heart of the city. Almagro’s number one tourist attraction is the grand Las Violetas, a 125-year old cafetería that instantly transports visitors to a more congenial time priod. A...
We had to make a special Subte trip off the tourist trail to Almagro, a typical portenos residential area, to visit this well known historical restaurant, with a shop attached selling their famous pastries. 120 years of class, with white-jacketed waiters and the elegant atmosphere of stained glass and marble. We had coffee and pastries, both of which were delicious...
We recently spent 7 wonderful days in the Almagro area of Buenos Aires. Our apart-hotel recommended we walk up the street to the Pierino Cantina for dinner. This wonderful, old-world vintage Italian restaurant serves up delicious Italian meals in a charming, upscale atmosphere complete with custom embroidered linen napkins. The service was wonderful and we ate at Pierino on two...
I was on a business trip and someone recommended this place.

The atmosphere is good, nothing fancy, seems a true local deal.
I will definitely come back in my next visit.

Almagro is no way the first area you visit as tourist in BsAs. There’s simply not that much happening there. That's of course the exact same reason why you also get that sought after «authentic» experience, and you wouldn’t want to miss it. The happenings of Microcentro/Palermo are still pretty close, and in Almagro you feel like a Porteño. The...
We had a nice stay, staff quite friendly, rooms are not bad but they could be better, mid-range price hotel close to city centre. The area where this hotel is located it is not the best, it seems quite scary but apparently it was safe. We had no problems at all.
After a traumatizing stay at Hostel Chipre, this was paradise!
Cheap and very good quality. The food was amazing, the room was good (except for the smell of cigarettes), the people were very nice and welcoming. The location is very good in my opinion.
