Elegant Bed and Breakfast in Buenos Aires

The Sprawling Metropolis of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is the third largest city in South America, a sprawling metropolis offering travelers a rich history, eclectic culture of art, music and incomparable nightlife. Buenos Aires's identity lies in its 48 neighborhoods, each with its own character and history. The city has a European feel to it with city blocks filled with cafes and sophisticated shops. Tourist must-sees include the Plaza de Mayo, El Centro, San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo, and La Recoleta. Schedule time for a siesta to allow you a lengthy night out at a club, bar, or performance, or an evening of tango and visit one of the neighborhoods' outdoor arts-and-crafts and antique markets.

Elegant Bed and Breakfast, Centrally Located

Located in Colegiales, a small, quiet and safe neighbourhood within walking distance of Palermo Hollywood and the ‘Soho’ district of Buenos Aires, B&B OLLEROS 3000 is run personally by Claudine, a Belgian who specializes in hospitality management, and her husband Juan, an architect and art historian. The innkeepers speak English, Spanish, French, and understand Italian.

The house was built in 1
903, completely renovated in 2001. It preserves its original character and tastefully combines the old and the new. The lovely sun patio, full of plants and flowers, is a privileged place to have breakfast in the open air. However, because of its many staircases, the house is not suitable for disabled people.

Within walking distance: the Flea Market, the New Design area (Palermo). At only 20 minutes by car or subway: the historical centre.(Teatro Colón, Plaza de Mayo, San Telmo, La Boca, Puerto Madero)
