    The hotel is located in a reasonably low priced area, though it is not far in a taxi to more plush areas. This place would be suitable for young travellers & would be more reasonably priced than others

    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.
