I am coming to Buenos Aires to learn to dance with my husband. We will be there from 1st of December to 27th of December and want to stay in a suitable place where we are close to the tango scene and can get good advice on teachers and where to see good tango.
Can you please recommend where we could stay? We do not want anything flashy or too expensive.

Irena, actually there are no "best" places that I know of for what you are looking for. If you book rooms in any downtown hotel you will still be close to Corrientes street where there are many tango places, Confiteria Ideal or even La Boca where you can find some suitable tango places
Other sites you can check for tango information:
Asociacion de milongas
As for lodging, my view is that the average 4 stars in the area of Plaza San Martin will do.

I have a friend who owns a hotel downtown Buenos Aires Capital Federal on Junin street which is about 100 paces from Corrientes.
The Hotel Monumental is in the Best Western chain. They have good prices and high speed internet in some of the rooms. All the rooms have been remodeled in the last two years. the staff speaks English and can give you good information about tango and all the other world class activities and facilities of the Paris of South America.
You can get information concerning reservations at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you stay there be sure and tell my friend Gary Hillert that Tom Woodson said hello.
