Buenos Aires has always offered visitors good hotel accomodations.  However, since 2002, when international tourism began to flourish in Argentina, the options have become far more diverse.  Visitors in Buenos Aires can choose from several four and five star hotels, designer hotels and bed and breakfast places.   The number of backpackers, youth and designer hostels also grew significantly.  For those preferring the comforts of home and/or staying for longer periods of time, there are numerous short-term apartment rental agencies through which visitors can rent a furnished and fully equipped apartment with all utilities, cable television and internet services included.
