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.
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
Highlights: “So many highlights - relaxing and wine tasting on the Estancia, trekking on the glacier, enjoying the polo and good in Buenos Aires and the experience and animal spotting in Iguazú. Such a diverse range of activities and experiences in 1 country made for an amazing 2 week holiday”KB, Chelmsford
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to pick out one part. Patagonia Camp was fantastic. However we found the scenery in Argentinian Patagonia stunning.BS, Derby
Patagonia and Buenos Aires were the stand out highlights although the whole trip was wonderful.ED, London

We have had a great holiday in Argentina, partly organised by JLA and would certainly recommend JLA to anyone that wants to have such a trip, as they provided very good knowledge of the areas we visited and good organisation.LS, Zurich
Most Memorable Moment: Perito Moreno glacier.SU, 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
Most memorable experiences: "Perito Moreno glacier - my photos don't come near to conveying its magnificence! Bus over the Andes. More comfortable than a flight and the mountains are truly awesome (was a long day, however,at around 8hrs 30mins.)"AW, 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
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
Highlights:- Hard to choose one: all the trips in Iguazu and Patagonia were spectacular, as was the impromptu tango in a bar in Puerto Iguazu and the guitarist in the market in San TelmoBV
Most Memorable Moment: Iguazu falls were amazing - much better than exepctedDM, London
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
Everything met with our expectations (and beyond) but If there was a real highlight it was probably the visit to Estancia ChristinaRJ, Arundel
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
Most Memorable Moment?: Seeing Iguazu falls was brilliant.IM, Chippenham
We had a great time. We'll definitely be going back to Argentina in the future.HD
Highlight: Bariloche, panoramic view was unforgettable. I have never seen such a wonderful sight on any of our many holidays.PJ, 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
Highlight? The trip to Puna.RE, Sheffield
Impossible to choose a highlight - the variety made it great. the Falls were a highlight, plus Palermo Viejo in BAKW, London
Highlights?: Perito Moreno breathtaking, Cerro frias,Patagonian lunch and staff (Anna)delightful, Iguazu spectacular, Tango dancing at El Querandi unforgettable.AM, Egham
This was our first trip to South America and most definitely will not be the last. And we will be travelling with yourselves again. It was an extremely varied trip and we enjoyed every bit . However we especially loved all the natural beauty and wonders of Patagonia and the Iguazú region .LH, Altrincham
Iguazu Fall were spectacular - made Niagara Falls look like a dripping tap. The bus journey from Mendoza over the Andes to Santiago was equally excellent. Buenos Aires was an exciting city, in which the area around La Boca was was so charismatic - could have stayed there for days!ID, London
A succession of world class excursions throughout the two weeks.JS, Newbury
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
It was all highlights but Iguassu falls from Argentina and Brazil were really amazing. We were fortunate to be there when the water volume and power of the falls were especially high (which outweighed the occasional heavy rain by far).MW, Oldham
