Very convenient location.

We stayed at the Fertilia for one week while we explored BA. The staff were very friendly and helpful - good English. We were happy with our room - basic, but we like to be able to cook. Able to get groceries within a couple of blocks. We are a couple in our mid-sixties and were able to walk to most of the districts from our hotel - only took the subte(subway) and bus once each. We thought one of the best parts of our week was the Borges Theater which was only 3 blocks away at the Galerias shopping centre. They had a different production every evening - tango shows, ballet, etc. for about $100 - $150 pesos each ( $16 - 24 CAD). We really enjoyed their excellent productions. We only had one bad experience - and this was not related to the hotel. We were walking down a street and thought we had been hit with bird poo. A very kind lady offered us some tissue and helped to clean us up. In doing so she managed to steal our small Acer travel computer without us realizing it until we got back to our hotel. A very talented pick pocket! We even thanked her for her help! Apparently this scam happens quite often in BA - so be warned. Don't accept help from anyone!
