The real Buenos Aires. Colorful and noisy neighborhood. Enjoy a walk and your coffee under the sounds of tango.

As a visitor to BA, San Telmo was the most interesting area that we stayed in. Of course the Sunday market brings in tons of people, but its definitely worth coming by as there is so much going on, great for people watching. When the...More

Go there and you experience the real Buenos Aires. Lots of nice little bars and restaurants who serve awesome quality food. Don't forget to visit the market halls as well

We had this marked as a top priority, but it was not a trip highlight in the end. The covered market was unique, including everything from restaurants to food markets to antique and art stores. Some areas of this very large market were effectively like...More

San Telmo is a bit gritty, I suppose, but it's also fun and exciting and cool. Great people-watching and shopping. Mimes! Art! Flea markets!

The San Telmo Market was hard to find and we were surprised that it just popped up on us. It’s a cool place with a really chill vibe. There’s plenty of shopping, especially for Argentina crafts and antiques. It’s also a great spot for lunch.

Sorry but I have no idea. I loved San Telmo. I saw nothing of Greenwich Village in this area except pure Buenos Aires.

Expensive for a small show, my experience is they were not friendly at all. It's only one pair dancing in between your meal. My experience came with unfriendly service. For a small show you overpay.
