Spanish in Argentina

There are a number of international, luxury hotel chains that offer the usual amenities of restaurant, pool, gym and casino. Local hotels range from very modest to luxurious. When choosing a more modest hotel, the traveler should pay attention to the neighborhood and check the room for cleanliness before actually making the reservation. Most hotels offer some kind of breakfast even if there is no restaurant.

There are hostels throughout Argentina where a room can be shared by three or four people. These are facilities popular with tourists and young people. Again, it is important to first check the room for cleanliness, make sure the hostel is in a safe location, and determine the availability of hot water. Part of the attraction of hostels is that they are far less expensive than hotels. Information on hostels can be usually found on the Internet or by word of mouth from other travelers.
