As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
"Excellent tour, Advance Reservations required for this top drawer free tour"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by michael R
Excellent tour, Advance Reservations required. Since this is the working office of the president of the republic tours are only offered on weekends and holidays. One English guided tour is offered in the morning and one in the afternoon. A passport is needed to reserve a spot on the free tour, about a week in advance, and the passport is...
"An excellent and very different Italian Restaurant"
reviewed 16 November 2017 by tabhauser
Dining here is like eating an Italian grandma's house. It looks like the place can be in a small Italian village once inside.
The price was only 480ARS for a table full of food. Here are some tips for non Spanish speakers:
1- The signs are not marked well. The place is in a non-descript building with a small sign...
Such a cool place bustling with locals and interesting memorabilia lining the walls.
The empanadas and lorco (?) soup was so good we’ve been hunting for more ever since! Huge beers and resonable prices
We actually stopped here twice, the first time for drinks. We ordered a coffee and a milk tea. They came with some nice little pastries, the milk tea was fantastic. We chose to sit outside, and were bothered a little by a man asking for money. The second time we came back was for a late light dinner. The restaurant...
A hidden gem known only by locals. Great pizza by the slice, ice cold drinks and a very well achived faina. You can try the “budin de pan mixto” for dessert to have the hole argentinian experience. We will be back!
Would have appreciated a possibility to purchase food and drinks late at night. Maybe 24 hour room service. Staff friendly and perfect. Rooms clean and nice. Breakfast very good. Huge rooms. Beatiful view from the roof terrace both night day.
This was our final hotel on our tour of Buenos Aires, Lima/Cusco and Rio de Janeiro and this was the best of them all. This was only meant to be a stopping point on our way to Machu Picchu and a last rest before returning home but Buenos Aires was our favourite city on the trip and the Tango de...
very well could be BAs best hotel, all facors considered. Classy 1930s feel, like walking into a chapter of Gungha Din- or Indy Jones. great breakfast buffet- not over the top nor full of waste, but not chinsy either. service is fantastic from all staff. been to BA at least a dozen times, this place beats out all the rest....
Arrived with Expedia reservation for three nights. One of the residents let us is. This place is not currently functioning as a hotel "rented out to working families." No staff, money taken. Full refund from Expedia. Apparently this and the sister hotel has been closed for two months.
Very interesting loft appartments are probably ones of its kind in Buenos Aires. As for its location, it is set perfectly in the centre, within easy reach from most of the important places in microcentro and some 300 metres from the main station of hop-on bus. Bear on mind it really is the heart of a big city, so on...
