Hotel de la Cañada
A good four-star hotel overlooking the river walk, also known as the Cañada. Rooms run about $40-$70, and there’s a small gym with a pool. Many rooms have great views. This is where I stayed, and on weekends, there’s a crafts fair on the river close to the hotel. The fair is a crafty and cruisy experience and one of the highlights of a gay trip to Cordoba.
Av. Marcelo T. de Alvear 580 (Alvear is also known as La Cañada)
Marcelo T. de Alvear 251
This hotel is just up the street from the Cañada, and has 140 rooms with prices ranging from $80 to $200. There is also a gym with a pool and views overlooking the river walk. It’s a better class of accommodations than the Cañada, with in-room Internet, good for people on business.

My own site with links to great Argentina articles, my Frommer’s book, and photos of the country.
You’ll need to get to Buenos Aires and from there, connect to a Cordoba flight of just over an hour. The country’s national airline, Aerolineas Argentinas, has several flights a day.
