All visitors to Buenos Aires are looking for a great place to stay, but if you’re arriving or leaving via cruise ship, you can save time too by staying at one of the best hotels located near the cruise port. There are many good choices from the neighborhoods that ring around it like Retiro, Recoleta and Puerto Madero.
Strictly speaking, the closest hotels to the cruise port are about a mile away next to Plaza San Martin. These include options like the Park Hotel Buenos Aires, Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center and Hilton Buenos Aires, who have more local history than their current chain associations might suggest. Then just a few more steps away on Suipacha street is the lovely and eco-friendly Casa Calma Hotel.
Otherwise, consider entrusting your stay to one of Buenos Aires’ better-known luxury hotels; they are a little farther away than the Plaza San Martin hotels, but if your schedule permits, they are worth it. Each one has a different vibe, from the classic Alvear Palace Hotel to the elegant Sofitel Buenos Aires to the modern Faena Hotel + Universe.
