Took the tour today and it was less than expected for the following reasons:

1. Took great effort to make the reservation—emails bombed, incorrect phone number on Google site, etc.
2. No tours in the near future were in English,
3. Numerous rooms were set up for a function so detracted from the grandness and minimal rooms to see,
4. Price of tour for non residents is now 10,000AR, and
5. Due to infrequency of tours, had over 25 people in my tour.

Hope others are more successful. They also host tango shows, which may have been a better option.

We visited here with a friend for drinks, the courtyard is lovely, however the interior is simply stunning, the opulence is breathtaking.

Tried twice to take the guided tour, which is the only way to see Palacio Paz. Followed the instructions on their useless website to no avail. The employees at the door were rude and uninterested, they even laughed at us. This could be a wonderful tourist attraction, but the way it's run is inefficient and discourteous.

We tried twice to reserve a guided tour but all the different websites that we tried were useless. Totally user unfriendly. We tried calling one morning to confirm the tour hours. Nobody answered. So we then arrived on a Tuesday at the time indicated for a guided tour even though we hadn’t been able to make a reservation. We were told that there was an event that day and therefore no guided tours. The attendants at the door were totally rude, unfriendly and couldn’t have cared less. My recommendation: don’t bother. A total put off.

This restaurant just opened up 6 months ago. Definitely one of the best in Buenos Aires. It is housed in a series of buildings, originally completed just before WWI for one of the wealthiedt men in Argentina and owner of the paper La Prensa. The restaurant is fantastic. Wnderful atmosphere, wide selection of appetizers, main courses, desserts and wines. Definitely will be going back.

This was the private residence of one of the most prominent families in Buenos Aires. It is a fantastic tour on which you are led through an impressive foyer and into opulent French-styled rooms with gold gilding, chandeliers, sculptures, dark imported Italian wood, tall stained glass windows, marble floors and staircases, etc, etc, etc. This was definitely my favorite tour, with the Museo de Arte Decorativo trailing behind by a hair.

Palacio Paz is located across the street from the Plaza San Martin and is about an 8 minute walk from the Galerias Pacifico mall in the Florida shopping area. The Teatro Colon is about a 15 minute walk away.

Though the tour was in Spanish, the guide did her best to speak slowly and gesture to help visitors understand. I'm not fluent in Spanish, but I caught about 2/3 of the presentation and helped explain to a few non-Spanish speakers on the tour. The enthusiasm and passion of the tour guide was one of the strengths of this tour. She really enjoys meeting new people and sharing this gem - a window to the style and opulence enjoyed by the aristocracy of 1909. The tour lasts about 1.5 hours.

The palace can ONLY be visited on a guided tour and is closed the rest of the day. The outside gate is locked and doesn't open until around 10am. At this time, visitors may inquire about tour times by speaking to the guard in the palace doorway, but visitors are not allowed entry until about 15 minutes before the tour.

The tour costs about 850 pesos ($15 or so) and in my opinion, is worth it. Just show up a little before 11am and wait to be allowed into the lobby and hall where you pay cash (Argentine pesos) at the cashier window. People start to gather outside around 10:45am, so it's a good idea to come a little early. The tour group is maxed out around 15 people, so don't snooze and lose.

*The sign outside indicates two tours a day, but when we inquired, we were told there was only ONE TOUR at 11am (in Spanish). I don't know if that is because we visited on Friday, January 3rd, right after the New Year holiday - it was closed Dec 31st, Jan 1st, and Jan 2nd - or if they've permanently cut their tours back to only one tour a day. Supposedly, there is an English tour once a week at 3:30pm on Thursdays, but we didn't confirm that since Thursday wasn't an option for us.

Hope that helps! Enjoy Buenos Aires!

*Note:
Finding information on opening hours or tour times was near impossible to do by internet. Google opening hours are completely inaccurate, the Argentine government website simply explains the building, and does not post hours or tour information. Therefore, it is not possible to book a tour in advance, which drove me bonkers.

Be aware that the "tours" offered through various tour companies online are mostly walking tours that breeze by the outside, stop briefly to explain its significance, and then briskly whisk tourists away to the next stop. These tours do NOT go inside. There is one VERY pricey palace tour which may actually include a tour inside, but why pay a few hundred dollars when you can show up and pay $15? You just need to know when. I think that may be why there is so little information about tours and opening hours. It's mad annoying!

The palace is a beautiful one, with so many rooms and things inside. The price is high and you can vidit it only with guided tours.
