    Hotel Republica is showing its age, but it is a pretty good and affordable option if you want to stay in the heart of the city. (US$30-$40 a night breakfast included) Plaza 5 de Mayo is located at the top of Av. Central, a buzzing pedestrian street (with hundreds of inexpensive stores) leading to to the old city. (It is a 20-25 minute walk to the old city). Note that while the old city has been renovated and is where most tourists attractions and high-end hotels are located, the area around Plaza 5 de Mayo is where local people shop and go out at night. If you want to be in the middle of the action with the local folks and don't mind the noise in the evening, that's the ideal hotel. My room was pleasant with a small fridge, window A/C (not too noisy), and a large shower. Overall a pretty good experience ... and the staff is really friendly, particularly Daniel at the reception and Rosa.

    Under renovation. Breakfast is pretty lame. Eggs with chopped up hot dogs and cereal. Lovely rooms that are well worth the price. The downside is the neighborhood is a little sketchy.
