cheap hotels in BA, any ideas?


Mar 25, 2007
Can anyone recommend a cheap hotel in BA? Everything has gone up so much I can not find an inexpensive place to recommend to visitors. The Prince and Guido Palace Hotels (2 stars) cost about $25 dollars about 3 years ago. Now they are around $100 for a single. I need something cheaper. Any ideas?
What about clubs? If, for example, an American were a member of the Army & Navy (Washington, D.C.), he could stay at the Argentine reciprocal, Círculo Militar, for about twenty-five dollars, I think.
If you want cheap, try bed and breakfast. I can recomend Single from $25 or double $45, shared bathroom, but so freindly that I still keep in contact even though I now have my own place. DIY breakfast so you can rise any time, only three rooms though, one double, one single, and one single en suite. Tell Luba Bob sent you.
If not to your taste just search B&B Buenos Aires on Google. Good luck.
Some of the apartments on this site have rates that are lower than hotels, especially if you rent by the month.
Try BA4U apartments. I've rented from them twice, once in April of 2007 for 2 weeks & for the entire month of Nov 2007. I think I paid $40 USD/day for the place in Nov that was huge, nicely appointed & furnished with maid service. Check out their website.
i was in b a last feb and i stayed in alpha hotel on riobamba, it was 125 peso a night ,was the cheapest in i could find. good location..
Many cheap hotels on avenida de Mayo, around 30 dollars a single room (no less).
some of them could be:
Hotel Marbella
Hotel Mari Plaza (people from my job delegations go there), on Bartolome Mitre Ave.
cheaper places could give you a bad surprise...beware.
I'm not an expat, I'm porteña, I've been trip advisor for years. So, at your service.
if you can get in, hotel carley, humberto primo, in san telmo right next to derrego plaza has rooms for as little as 35 pesos a night!
