I don't know about a *best* place but my experience is that the rates are worse than downtown area. Much less people trading cash -- I was able to exchange in a fair rate (still worse than downtown) with a restaurant maitre!

The places in Recoleta are mostly permanent storefronts. Some are also buyers of gold and jewelry, or have some other associated business. Others don't have any markings, just a door. They are all over. Ask at a kiosk, hotel front desk, restaurant, etc. for a couple nearby, and compare rates; they are likely to be nearly the same and a few percentage points "worse" than what you would get in the business Centro.

Spent over an hour talking to hotel desk clerks and locals trying to find a good place to exchange around Recoleta. Got tired, walked to Florida Street and completed a large exchange in 2 minutes. No problems.

As I said above,I always change money at the place opposite the Recoleta mall,Calle Junin entrance,their thorougly profesional,I hve also changed money at the big kiosko by the "Los Galgos" apartment building close to Juncal on Callao,there I was given the FULL DAILY BLUE RATE,but that was a somewhat more insider transaction withouth any middel man and probably not typical.
