Take the atmosphere of a European city, mix with some Latin American energy and you get Buenos Aires.
The vibrant Argentine capital is sometimes referred to as the "Paris of South America". This is a city unlike anywhere else on earth.
Buenos Aires is loved by visitors the world over. But sometimes love costs money and consequently, hotel prices have risen. If you are looking to travel on a budget, at Booked.net you may find hotels in Buenos Aires at exclusively lower prices than hotel rack rates.

The cityscape is dominated by immigrants - mainly of European origins, Italian and Spanish being the most common, but German, Swedish, Dutch, Greek, Irish, Norwegian, Portuguese, French, Russian, Croatian, English and Welsh have left their mark. In the 1990s there was a small wave of immigration from Romania and Ukraine.
With Booked.net you can find a hotel that places you in the center of Classic Buenos Aires, with its old-world cafés, colonial architecture and outdoor markets.
It's a city with a sexy side, best shown by the Tango. Tango was born in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, and its seductive dance moves were not seen as respectable until adopted by Paris' high society in the 1920s, and then all over the world.
Buenos Aires architecture is eclectic reflecting the population, but notable attractions include;
- Iglesia Santa Felicitas by Ernesto Bunge
- The Palace of Justice, the National Congress and the Teatro Colon - all designed by Vittorio Meano
- The work of Italian architects such as André Blanqui and Antonio Masella, can be seen in the churches of San Ignacio, Nuestra Senora del Pilar and the Cabildo
- The landmark 1936 Kavanagh building houses the world's first central air-conditioning system
Like much of South America the locals are especially passionate for football. So besides wine events, helicopter tours and skydiving, experience Spanish football.
The city features distinct urban areas. Those looking for rest will benefit from a hotel in La Boca area, while shopaholics should book a room in Microcentro.
