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).

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
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
An excellent holiday to a fantastically varied country inhabited by charming people. An absolute must.CF, Sutton
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 - the whole trip was incredible! Seeing the falls by full moon was one of the most amazing things i have ever seen!JW, Aylesbury
Most Memorable Moment: Iguazu falls were amazing - much better than exepctedDM, London
We had a great time. We'll definitely be going back to Argentina in the future.HD
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
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
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
Highlights?: A horse ride and fishing in the Andes, seeing elephant seals close up at Peninsula Valdes and that unexpected chapel service. Wonderful memories!EJ, Tregaron
Overall, a fantastic trip. Will recommend Argentina and Journey Latin America to any friends looking to travel to this area. Thank you very much for helping us to create such a smooth running and enjoyable trip for us!KB, Chelmsford
Highlight?: Wildlife! Buenos Aires! Travelling Club! being at the end of the world, border crossing in and out of Chile - good fun.....MK, Orkney
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
Highlight?: Too many but Iguazu stands out!JB, Mansfield
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 loved all of it, we really enjoyed the scenery of Humahuaca Gorge and the drive to Cafayate. Iguazu falls are incredible also and a definite highlight....We found our whole holiday experience excellent. It was nice to be able to see so much in 2 weeks whilst still feeling relaxed as we were looked after so well by all our guides. The personal itinerary and help we received made a huge difference to us and we were impressed by the standard of all our hotels. The only problem was that we wished we had longer so we could of seen more.HB, Abingdon
Trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier, seeing Condors in the Andes, crossing the Andes by boat and bus, the whole visit to Ushuaia. This was probably the most varied and exciting trip we have done in recent years, which worked almost perfectly logistically and in terms of time spent in each location.PN, Guildford
Highlight: Bariloche, panoramic view was unforgettable. I have never seen such a wonderful sight on any of our many holidays.PJ, London
Highlights?: Perito Moreno breathtaking, Cerro frias,Patagonian lunch and staff (Anna)delightful, Iguazu spectacular, Tango dancing at El Querandi unforgettable.AM, Egham
Most Memorable Moment?: Seeing Iguazu falls was brilliant.IM, Chippenham
Most Memorable Moment?: Impossible to say, as each element was so different from the rest. La Bamba certainly will leave an enduring memory. Just the way to chill out after a fairly busy itinerary.AD, London
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
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
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
Seeing the iguazu falls was unforgettable. The hotel was beautiful with a fantastic position.LD, 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 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
A succession of world class excursions throughout the two weeks.JS, Newbury
Most Memorable Moment: Perito Moreno glacier.SU, London
