Lucas and I slept splendidly in our California king bed and to further indulge ourselves we took advantage of our private butler at Algodon Mansion by requesting room service. Is there anything more glamorous than breakfast in bed with your loved one?
Then it was time to check out of our little oasis in Recoleta and head to another barrio for our next hotel adventure. For the following two days we would be staying at Hotel Moreno, located in the bohemian neighborhood of San Telmo. Of all of the barrios, San Telmo is the one that I have spent the least amount of time in. Surprisingly, in the six years that I have been visiting Buenos Aires, I have stepped foot in San Telmo once and that was on my last trip in October and it was only for dinner. Thus, I was excited to become more intimate with the popular barrio.
Hotel Moreno might lack certain luxuries of other boutique hotels, however for the price you pay you will be absolutely amazed with what you receive. See the gigantic room with a king size bed (kitchen not shown) pictured below? The rate for that room was $90/night! Also included in that price was a buffet breakfast.
After Lucas and I dropped off our stuff in the room, we decided to get lost in San Telmo. In my opinion, that is the best way to really get acquainted with a new place (well, new for me, not for Lucas). One of the things that I love most about Buenos Aires is that it offers photographic opportunities in every direction you look. And during our walk I encountered one after another after another. . .
While I thoroughly enjoyed my time in San Telmo, I do not think it will become my favorite barrio any time soon. I still have such a soft spot for both Puerto Madero and Palermo Soho. What is your favorite barrio in Buenos Aires?
