Buenos Aires apt location
making 1st trip to BA considering apt at Paraguay & Libertad Barrio Norte Recoleta.

It is on low floor. Does anyone know if this a quiet area?

How far from Recoleta area would this be?

Thank you, Tania

paraguay/Libertad is not a quiet area. It is not the noisiest area (Santa Fe or Las Heras have more traffic) but both paraguay and libertad have a fair amount of traffic...busses and taxis...plaza libertad is nearby and may help buffer the noise somewhat...

This location is probably 15 blocks from the village of recoleta/cemetary area...and six or seven to Ave. Alvear in Recoleta.

About the same distance to downtown...

I'd say it is in a nice area, but certainly not quiet (several bus lines on both Libertad & Paraguay streets).

You can walk to what I would call "Recoleta proper", which would be the cemetery. It is just about ten blocks away.

Have a great time in our country.

The Doc beat me by one minute, but we mostly agree! Great! LOL!!

I agree with AV that it is a nice area...convenient to downtown as well as Recoleta.
