Tall white columns and stately bow windows flank the entrance of the Claridge Hotel, beyond which you'll find the high-ceilinged lobby and a traditional British café and piano bar that draws a steady stream of politicians and businessmen. The brick building dates from 1946, and was built with an Anglo-Argentine clientele in mind. That feeling lingers in the spacious, elegant rooms with elegant wood furnishings and flowing draperies. The pool and spa are ideal for chilling out after a long porteño night.

I just got back from my first trip to Buenos Aires. The Claridge is in a great,centralized location. Within a few hundred feet of Florida,the pedestrian shopping mecca of downtown BA. Many great cafes in the area. Within a 15 minute walk of Plaza de Mayo and other downtown sites. 15-20 peso cab ride to just about everywhere else in the city you'd want to go. Friendly,helpful staff. The breakfast is very good,the hotel restaurant serves up really good
steaks,and the bar makes awesome drinks. I would highly recommend the Claridge.
