In addition to moderately priced rooms, Hotel Antártida Argentina (Rivadavia 172, tel. 02901/435761, www.antartidahotel.com.ar , US$64 s or d) has a promising upscale restaurant.

Only its busy location detracts from the bright and cheerful Hotel Cap Polonio (San Martín 746, tel. 02901/422140 or 02901/422131, www.hotelcappolonio.com.ar , US$100 s or d).
