- Getting there from Airport
From Ezeiza the fare will be something like 150-170 pesos. From Aeroparque it will be around 35-45 pesos. Just tell the taxi driver the address above, and if you want, you can try to fix the price (for that it is better if you speak Spanish).
By Bus / Shuttle
From Ezeiza (EZE): take the shuttle Manuel Tienda León ("Tienda León" is the name in the shuttle - the price is 25 dollars per person, and can be booked here). That will leave you in Terminal Madero, in Retiro. From there you can take a taxi to the hotel for ARS 25/30. But most shuttles can take you directly to the hotel for a bit more money.
From Aeroparque (AEP): In front of Aeroparque you can take the bus 37 (the bus pass in the two sides of the avenue, but don't cross it. Take the one in front of he Airport), and leave the bus in Rodríguez Peña y Corrientes, that bus stop is just after cross Corrientes Avenue. That is one street away from Bauen.
