Lugar Gay was a great place to develop a sense of home in Buenos Aires. It was a bit off season so there were not a lot of travelers there, but Santo and Javier were kind, welcoming, and very professional in their management of this property. My room was beautiful- high ceilings, spacious, comfortable bed, and nice clean bathroom. I...

I stayed here for 5 nights in late May and highly recommend it to any guys travelling solo or with friends. The staff are really friendly without being obtrusive and no issue is a problem. I had lost a few items (externally not within the hotel) and the staff went above and beyond to help me. It's also a great...

Have been here four times and always a great experience. The place is quite hidden in the middle of San Telmo, but once you found it you never want to go back. It has a great vibe and easy to meet other guys for a chat or drink. Easy to get into the city or just relax on the big...

I stayed in Lugar Gay 5 nights, extended 2 to my planned 3 because I really liked the socializing atmosphere there where it felt like in a family or group of friends. Santo and Javier did all their best with advices and help in every asked question. They did a lot of effort to treat the costumers very nice and...

Javier, Santo and all the other friendly staff made me feel so welcome. Nothing was any trouble and always full of great advice about Buenos Aires. My first trip to South America Herbert it won't be my last. Delicious breakfast each morning. Comfortable rooms with a lovely courtyard garden.

I couldn’t have picked a better place to stay in Buenos Aires. First of all, it’s a very warm and welcoming environment. Nestor, Javier, Santo, and Juan all did a great job in helping me feel like I’m at home from the moment I arrived. Do share your ideas on the types of things you’d like to see and do...

There is a fantastic roof deck for sunning and meeting fellow travelers. Breakfast is included and is continental. It is a very friendly and social environment, and the managers (Santos and...

Santo, Javier and Juan were very helpful and truly concerned that each guest is enjoying himself. The fellow guests were an unexpected bonus. Plan to spend time lingering over breakfast and enjoying them as well as the city.

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...

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.
