Palladio Hotel Buenos Aires
Palladio Buenos Aires is a slick first class hotel well located for exploring the city's different neighbourhoods.
Hotel Palladio is an ultra-modern glass-fronted property on the busy Avenida Callao, close to the heart of the city of Buenos Aires. And what a heart it is: a monumental colonial core is peppered with outstanding historic buildings such as the Casa Rosada presidential palace on the Plaza de Mayo while modern art sculptures, the famous Teatro Colon and parks laden with ancient trees are nearby. Also within walking distance of the hotel are the highlights of the sedate and formerly very affluent Recoleta district, still a very pleasant neighbourhood with some graceful belle époque residences.
This first class property is a McGallery by Sofitel hotel, one of the Accor brand, and has all the top-of-the-range features associated with this well-respected group of hotels. Guest rooms (there are several categories) are all well air-conditioned and sound-proofed – essential on a busy avenue – and the comfort of the accommodation is enhanced by roomy beds, and smart, businesslike furnishings and décor. There is a summer outdoor pool with loungers, fitness room, bar and bistro restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine. There are plenty of other eating options nearby).
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
The trips from Hotel Puerto Valle into the Ibera wetlands were amazing and wonderful. We also had a memorable time in Purmamarca, thoroughly enjoyed the self drive route and of course the amazing Iguazu falls.VW, Bakewell
It seems almost invidious to single out one part of the trip given the high quality overall but it has to be Puerto Valle. Our expectations were very high given our experience thus far but those expectations were exceeded. We cannot commend them highly enough.CB, Leeds
We had a marvellous time, the welcome's we got at each airport was fantastic and everyone was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The people of Argentina are warm and friendly we felt relaxed and would recommend a visit there to anyoneMC
We had an excellent holiday in Argentina and are very grateful to Sophie for organising it for us so well.JR, Acton
Highlight: Bariloche, panoramic view was unforgettable. I have never seen such a wonderful sight on any of our many holidays.PJ, London
Most memorable experience: "First - the Andean crossing from Puerta Varas to Bariloche. Perfect weather, scenery and organisation. Second - Patagonia Camp and the mini-treks we did around the Park. Beautiful Third - Salta and the Cachi/Cafayate trip. Interesting, historic and magnificent."RW, Cobham
Most Memorable Moment: Perito Moreno glacier.SU, London
The whole trip was memorable! The excursion to Estancia Cristina was amazing, trekking Laguna Torre and Laguna de los Tres were awesome too. And nothing beats being able to see and hear the Perito Moreno Glacier calve!LB, London
Each day gave us stunning scenery, amazing sights and the friendliness of the Argentinian people. Although one particular highlight was seeing an armadillo on the road from El Calafate..YGG, Wirral
We both thought that the experience and power of the Iguazu Falls when we were alone in the grounds on our own (early in the morning before the crowds arrived) was an experience of a lifetime. We've never seen an almost circular rainbow caused by the river's spray before.AP, London
Highlight?: Cerro Otto, fabulous weather and the guide was just so relaxed and we had all the time in the world. It was a fabulous dayBD, Oswestry
Highlights?: The guides Laura, Rami and Roberto were tremendous. Highlights among many definitely include the Salta Trip to the Clouds Day, the Iguazu Falls (esp the Argentine side)and the Bariloche hiking days.JD, London
Too many highlights to mention - almost every day. Unexpected highlight was the 3 Lakes crossing from Puerto Varas to Bariloche in beautiful weather.JM, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Sitting by the shore of Laguna de los Tres at the base of Mount Fitz Roy in El Chaltén ... or sitting in a wood-fired hot-tub on the first day of our honey-moon, overwrought, slightly jet lagged and very happily married!RB, London
Highlight?: Wildlife! Buenos Aires! Travelling Club! being at the end of the world, border crossing in and out of Chile - good fun.....MK, Orkney
Most memorable trip
I have wanted to visit Argentina for years. Journey Latin America helped by interpreting our desires and pulled together an excellent itinerary. Our journey will be one of the most memorable trips we have ever been on. Each accommodation was different, giving us a taste for the area, culture and the people were so friendly. What an amazing country.LT, Wimborne
Difficult to identify (the highlights of my self drive holiday)... I would highlight the interest of the looping drive down the mountains to the west....watching the leaves of the roadside foliage increase in size as the temperature rose was mesmerising. I would suggest that the pleasure of long drives through changing countryside is one of the unsung pleasures of such holidays as mine. But perhaps that's just lazy old me!RS, Salisbury
What a fantastic country with genuinely friendly, happy people; it was a delight to meet so many. Although we realise we haven't seen all that the country has to offer, we felt we did get a real impression of Argentina and loved it.ML, Cheltenham
An excellent holiday to a fantastically varied country inhabited by charming people. An absolute must.CF, Sutton
Not easy to pick out a highlight. It was a very varied trip as we had requested. The natural scenery around Salta, Iguazu, the Lakes and all over Patagonia was amazing, helped by some very favourable weather. The top hotels - Patagonia Camp, Patios de Cafayate, Arakur were great; some of the lesser hotels surpassed their descriptions - Molinos, la Yegua Loca, Anslemo;...The Andean Crossing was fabulous: fantastic scenery which we saw in perfect conditions, with very easy transfers and helpful guides.CB, Winchester
We had a great time. We'll definitely be going back to Argentina in the future.HD
Excellent trip during which we felt we saw some of the real Argentina. Delightful and helpful people abounded who had an enviable pride in their country. Excellent service from JLA (particularly Lina) and local representatives in Argentina added to our enjoyment.ML, Cheltenham
Seeing the iguazu falls was unforgettable. The hotel was beautiful with a fantastic position.LD, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to pick out one part. Patagonia Camp was fantastic. However we found the scenery in Argentinian Patagonia stunning.BS, Derby
Overall, Journey Latin America took excellent care of us on our journey through and across Argentina. We will travel with them again.US, Godalming
A succession of world class excursions throughout the two weeks.JS, Newbury
Impossible to choose a highlight - the variety made it great. the Falls were a highlight, plus Palermo Viejo in BAKW, London
Highlights:The visit to the milonga for my husband and the Iguazu Falls for meLS, Dorchester
The weather was very kind to us and every glacier, view and the falls were stunningly beautiful. I loved being in the hotel at Bariloche sitting on the terrace overlooking the lake. I even thoroughly enjoyed travelling through the Enchanted Valley from Nequen to Bariloche because the airport had been closed. It is impossible for us to put one memorable moment as every part of Argentina that we went to was beautiful.LL, Bexley
Highlight: Journey on the PunaMK, London
