few metters from the obelisco, with Carrefour shop in the next door, and very close from the subway. The break fast was a little poor, but had a dellicius "Dolce de Lecche" that I loved. Good price, that aceept payments in USD, € and BRL.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
