Arrived at 03:30 in the morning after Iberia put me up here after cancelling my flight. Reception desk staff was rude. Shouting that I was ungrateful and disrespectful after I enquired whether there was water in my room and told - no. I politely asked...More

However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with
ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
