There is a wide range of accommodation options in Buenos Aires and the rest of the country, from student dormitories to luxurious palaces and modern five-star hotels, as well as cosy guesthouses and trendy boutique hotels in the city. There are also many beautiful lakeside lodges in Patagonia and fabulous regional farms (estancias) outside the cities.
Many holiday cabañas (cottages or weekend houses) can be rented on a short-term basis directly from the owners in mountain, seaside and country areas. Drive around and look for signs saying “alquiler” (“rental”), or check the classified section of any major newspaper.
Bear in mind that, with the exception of 5-star hotels, rooms are generally not as large as in hotels around the world.
