Palermo Soho--safety near Uriarte and Soler?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are visiting Buenos Aires for 5 days at the beginning of March.

I am considering a hotel that is near the intersection of Uriarte and Soler in Palermo Soho.

Is this a safe location? I felt like it was, but upon reading a Lonely Planet entry about how Godoy Cruz (just a couple blocks away) is the red light district and should be avoided at night for safety reasons, I got worried.

But the Lonely Planet was from 2007, so I'm wondering if the area has changed and is now safer?

I know precautions should be taken everywhere, and safety is no guarantee anywhere, but I'd just like a sense of whether or not this is an area that is safe to walk around at night, or if there are other neighborhoods that might be better?
