“Great neighborhood!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

I am glad I chose to stay here instead of Palermo (which is nice to visit, even nicer to leave). Safe, central, walkable to all the sights (Cemetery, Plaza De Mayo, Teatro Colon, Calle Florida, Museo De Bellas Artes and MALBA) and a short cab ride elsewhere. Highlights of the area are good restaurants (El Mirasol, La Pecora Nera, Smeterling, even the empanadas at La Cocina), shops (Celadonio Lohidoy - now on Uruguay, check his website), Patio Bullrich.

“Nice place for a day of walking ”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Easy to navigate, many nice cafés, shops, and a cemetery make this upscale neighborhood a great destination. There is also a performing arts center to partake of concerts and other events.

“Good place to go and drink a coffee as a "local" porteño.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Odd thing to go, the whole place is around the cementery, one of the best in the city… At night there are lot of places to eat and some night life.

“Recoleta”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great markets on weekends, lots of arts and craft. Home to the famous cemetry with the Evita mausoleum, Extensive cultural centre offers something for any taste. Lots of restaurants, but not cheap. Best to have an executive menu for lunch, evenings are more expensiv

“Very nice”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is an expensive residential area of Buenos Aires and it´s well worth seeing. On Sundays you find artisans selling all kinds of things in Plaza Francia, where you can also catch some live open air shows. There is also the Recoleta Cementery, also very popular. Evita is burried here and also many other important people. Nice for a walk. You can also find many restaurants in the area. It´s a nice place.
