⬤ IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Travelling to Buenos Aires, Argentina

From March 1st., each tourist visiting Buenos Aires aged 12 or above will have to pay an
additional dollar tax per night, depending on the hotel category.

It is a sliding scale as follows:
• US$50 cents per person and per night for a 3-star hotels or less,
• US$1 dollar per person and per night for a 4-star hotel
• US$1 dollar per person and per night for a Boutique Hotel
• US$ 1.5 per person and per night for 5-star hotels

Its important to mention that the rating of the hotel is according to government
regulations and not our grading. For example, a hotel we may sell as a 4-star Superior
may technically considered to be a 5-star deluxe hotel.
This tax should be paid on check out in Argentinean pesos (at current exchange rates)
to the hotel, with the room bill.
