Hotels:
Regarding hotel bookings, you are free to make a reservation in any hotel or short term rental at your best convenience.

Here is a list of hotels in the Recoleta area that you may find useful:

Note that we have access to special fares of
100 USD/night at the Dazzler Tower Recoleta   and
 85 USD/night at the Dazzler Libertad.
Both hotels are walking distance from the workshop location, so we strongly recommend these two options. If you are interested, please let us know asap and we will book for you, in order to obtain the preferential rate.

Otherwise, the short term rental website airbnb.com and the usual hotel website booking.com both work fine in Buenos Aires. Beyond the area of Recoleta where the workshop will take place, the neighboring area of Palermo is usually appreciated by visitors.

Finally, if you want to solicit a local travel agency for hotel booking or any other service, we recommend Pezzati Viaje (www.pezzati.com). In this case, please contact Eliana Della Maggiora
(elianadellamaggiora@pezzati.com) mentioning the DADA workshop.

Transport:
A taxi ride from the Ezeiza international airport to Recoleta will have a cost of about 180-200 pesos. If you wish to take a taxi book it with one of the authorized agencies that you will find at the airport, just at the exit from the custom area. (check the website http://www.aa2000.com.ar/taxisyremises.aspx)

Otherwise, an alternative is the Bus company 'Manuel Tienda Leon' which has comfortable buses departing to Buenos Aires every 30' at a cost of 70 pesos. The booth of the company is in the arrival area at the Ezeiza airport. The bus is direct to the bus terminal which is in the central area of Buenos Aires. The company also offers a minibus service to drop you at your hotel from the terminal. This service is recommended - you should then book it upfront when buying your ticket.
