The building is beautifull ... have an huge impact. Le shopping inside seems very old, confused, bad organized. In some point seems like the shops of an train station. Caos, confusion, little shops in the middle, children playgrounds ... after a while you want escape! The shops are ok, same as usual.

We walked from Recoleta in 30 min. They have transformed an old vegi/meat market to a modern mall. The ceiling is great!. Most of the popular stores from Recoleta are there. We felt very safe in the mall, but would only go during the day. Could be unsafe after dark!!!

The shopping mall is good and modern medium size. I didn't buy anything because the stuff all very expensive than what I could get them in New Zealand. If you don't speak Spanish it is good to learn some basic as most Argentinan don't speak English.

Its a fascinating art deco building, has rides and amusements, a great food court with some of the best cakes I've ever had, and always has a fun, family-friendly atmosphere all year round. Its magical at Christmas time.

If you're used to western-style shopping centres like Westfield, this place is underwhelming. It seems just like any other mid-level western mall, nothing special.

There are some amusement rides for children on the top level and a huge food court on the level below. The mall seems to cater to a younger crowd but has more exclusive stores. Very clean. Be cautious after leaving the mall since pickpockets tend to roam Avda Corrientes.

(May 2015) In my personal opinion, walking through the old neighborhoods to get here was just as beautiful and interesting as the shopping center itself. My photo is of the "back" entrance I suppose - artsy and fun looking, as opposed to the "normal" looking entrance that appears the same as any mall in the USA. Regardless, this space is... More
