Recommended lodging in Buenos Aires

El Sol de San Telmo

This tango hostel is a good place to stay for tango tourists. Carlota and I stayed here.

The manager, Fabrizio, is friendly, speaks excellent English, and is fully immersed in the tango world so he can tell you what is going on each night, and give his recommendations.

Tango Trip Reports

Here is an interesting report of two (naive) tango dancers from Houston travelling recently in Buenos Aires. With photos.

Rick McGarrey from Tucson has journals from two trips, one in 2001, and another in 2003: Tango and Chaos in Buenos Aires by Rick McGarrey

Chicago dancer Bibi Wong has written these Postcards from Buenos Aires

Do others have tango trip reports that I can include on these pages?
