Certainly an interesting building. Has some cool history to it. It is not the most beautiful of buildings that BA has to offer, but still a special one in it's own right. Worth checking out, but I am not sure if I would 100% go...More
We were lucky enough to stay in one of the apartments, which is pretty much the only way to get inside, so were therefore able to see inside. This is a very cool building and very well built. The apartments are amazing, and huge, with...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. 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.
