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.
"Historic Plaza where you can watch couples tango dancing for the cost of a donation."

This historic square in San Telmo was the site where it appears that the Independence of Argentina was announced to the people of Buenos Aires in 1816. Nowadays it is a relatively small, but pretty Plaza surrounded by reasonably well maintained buildings, many of which it appears, date back to the 19th century, and some large trees. The San Telmo...
One of the prettiest parks in Buenos Aires. The jacarandas are in bloom. Lots of interesting sculpture and statues to famous Argentine. Designed at the begging of the 20th century. French inspired. Bike tours go thru it. Not to miss if you are in San Telmo
Being in San Telmo and not going to visit the church that gives the name to this region in the city would be a shame. It a nice church with several images, it needs a renovation as some points are clearly wearing off, but still has the same charm and historical value as San Telmo has.
This was one of our first dinners in BsAs. It was perfect. We were a little early (like good tourists). If you can find a spot outside in the back, it's worth it. We had a beautiful spring night, with a little breeze, lots of folks inside and out, the music was going, and the crowd built steadily through the...
What a lovely space, dinner for one, on the balcony, overlooking the square, from which one can observe the a tango show in the distance as well as listen to the live music.
The service was impeccable. The wine perfectly chilled. But the best was the Caprese salad. Sadly I wished I could have shared, that would have allowed me...

Could not believe, that a spoon can „cut“ the beef. But it did and the rib eye was marvellous. A very busy place, but the waiters are very observant, patient & friendly. It‘s really a great place to enjoy a top cut of meat.
It was our first place to eat in Buenos Aires after our travels for 24 hours. It was a great choice. The pintos were well priced (45pesos each). Expect to eat around 6-7 of them accompanied by a nice bottle of wine from their extensive collection. Recommended place.
Pretty little hotel in a great location with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very helpful. Good breakfast. Great bartenders. Front desk is excellent. Great restaurant recommendations. Would go back
After a business trip to Buenos Aires, I took some time off, and decided to stay at the CH Madero Urbano Suites. Overall stay was magnificent, the hotel, offers full suites, with kitchen, bathroom, HD TV, breakfast included, gym, pool, and it is 2 blocks away from San Telmo. I was really surprised with the service and overall experience, will...

Stayed 5 nights. Great location in San telmo. Just 1 block away from plaza dorrego and 1 block from great coffee in mercado san telmo. The guys at reception are very helpful with any questions or needs. Fantastic cooked breakfast. They have pool and spa which we didn't use. 12 rooms. Ours had no street windows as windows faced the...
But we stopped at the start and end of our trip for 3 nights each.... first stay was excellent. Good quiet room and jacuzzi bath. Fantastic value for money. Return stay.... room at front, saggy bed and grotty bathroom. We spoke to reception and they offered a room change next day, but we could not be bothered. Points for offering,...
