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.
"Good for those that have some familiarity with Argentine history."

Covers from pre-columbian times to 1914. Interesting items, photos, documents, etc. It is difficult to figure out how to visit the rooms in a chronological way. Unfortunately many of the narrative descriptions are marred by a leftist indigenist, anti establishement tone.
Good for those that have some familiarity with Argentine history.
Has an interesting but somewhat hidden store that sells...
We travelled to Plaza Darrego in San Telmo and had a pleasant lunch in one of the restaurants set up in the square. There were two restaurants who had Tango dancing by couples who seemed a regular feature. They danced for about 10 minutes and then came round with a hat to collect money. It was a good spot to...
"Cartoon statues on a path to the Museum of Humour"
reviewed 12 March 2019 by Escape-overseas
The start of a walk from St Telmo, around the area and across to the harbour area, tracking down various street statues of cartoon characters ending up at the Museum of Humour. Don’t forget to take a photo of the map on the street sign adjacent to Malfida on the bench, showing the location of each character.
"Great place for some peace, quiet and AC. Especially for the price!"

On our recently visit to BA the weather was warmer than we expected, I wasn't feeling well and walking around the antique market in San Telmo did not help with my stomach as it had a unique (not in a good way) smell. We took refuge in the museum. There were not as many exhibits as I anticipated given the...
We had our lunch there and got the perfekt argentinian steak. We took the bife de lomo (tenderloin) in medium and it was perfekt. The meat was super tender and also the vegetables were great. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody visiting Buenos Aires and wanting to test a steak.
You always hear about the beef at "Don Julio"...
During the uncertain and difficult times of corona virus and the lock down of Buenos Aires, the owner went above and beyond to ensure ever guest was looked after. The roof top pool was lovely and so were the bedrooms. Highly recommend staying if you are in BA. Not a bad word to say.

We stayed for one night at Anselmo and were deligthed by the helpfulness of the staff. The location of the hotel at a small square in the old town with restaurants and shops nearby is very good. We liked the modern room which was very quiet (most rooms seem to face a small courtyard and therefore are not exposed to...

Arrived there and it was exactly like the images on hostelworld.com. Always good that the photos are representative of the actual place.

"Wonderful boutique hotel with great service and location!"
reviewed 3 days ago by JPEJFE
A charming little boutique hotel. The location is great, you can walk to numerous points of interest in San Telmo, including the Sunday Market, and to adjacent areas like La Boca.
One of the best features of L'Adresse was the service. We felt like we got to know Brian and Carlos. They were friendly, charming and very helpful. A highlight...
