Buenos Aires experts, I need hotel et al advice please.

Jump to last reply

We're aiming to be in BA for about 2 weeks at the beginning of May (we're limited to those two weeks). I'm almost ready to book a hotel and flight and then leave the what-to-do, where-to-go questions till later.

I do have a few questions now though and hope you BA experts can help:

1) Weather -- I know it will be fall but can you give me some idea of the temps in early May? Sunny? Rainy?

2) We like an interesting but not crazy-touristy neighbourhood (e.g. in NYC I'd rather be on the uppper west side than Times Square). We like to walk so I'd like a safe neighbourhood within walking distance of some of the more interesting sights. I'm leaning towards hotels in Recoleta. Am I right? What about Palermo? That might be my other choice.

3) Here's the list of hotels I'm considering, all in our price range and so far, all in Recoleta. If you know any of them, I'd love your comments, or if you can suggest some I haven't got listed that would be great. We'd like a nice, clean (of course) hotel in a safe area. Two important things: it would be nice to have a quiet hotel (and I do know BA is a noisy city) and my SO definitely needs a treadmill (it's a health thing) so I've eliminated a few places that don't mention fitness facilities. So here we go:

Casa Sur Art Hotel
Loi Suites Recoleta (are they really suites?)
Melia Recoleta Plaza
Serena Hotel
Buenos Aires Grand Horwl

Thanks very much for your help.
