I feel have to defend Wallpaper city guides from the unfair review already posted. I own a few, and recently bought this one as am soon spending 4 days in BA on a tour of South America. The blurb on the inside cover describes it as a "precise informative checklist of the most enticing architecture and design".
And this is what you get. Wallpaper city guides are not Lonely Planets or Rough Guides. They don't tell you where the best cheap hotels, laundrettes and postcard stores are. I'm not 100% sure who the target readership for them is, and I take them slightly tongue in cheek to be honest. They are aimed at people with a specific interest in modern architecture, interior decor, design and fashionable restaurants. The great beauty of them is the photographs. The map is a token gesture - no use but that's what alternative guide books or smart phones are for.
If you are someone for whom one of the main joys of visiting foreign cities is checking out the best of the modern architecture and glitziest bars by the latest designer of the moment, then you'll be rewarded with this book. If you want to know the bus times to the 2pm guided tour of the Gothic monastery, look elsewhere.

This is a guide from 2010... Having just come back from Buenos Aires, I can confirm a lot of the addresses recommended here just don't exist anymore. It should be made clear that this guide is old!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice form factor, but lacks info 3 Feb. 2014
By JR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The size and form factor are great, but I can't imagine this being useful to anyone walking around Buenos Aires who wants to see something more than glossy photos of nice buildings/hotel rooms/stores that appear as if they've been taken out of a fancy travel magazine. In short, tar more real estate in this book devoted to pictures. And while one can appreciate that Wallpaper guides have a different focus for a different kind of tourist, the write-ups lacked any real insights. They seemed as if they were the captions from a sponsored section of a travel magazine. Overall, this was useless.
