Ya a fines del Siglo XIX, la planificación de una nueva nación necesitaba de una mayor cantidad de mano de obra. Para dar alojamiento temporal hasta ayudar a los nuevos inmigrantes a conseguir trabajo y vivienda, se construyó el Hotel de Inmigrantes, de forma octogonal y que luego dio lugar al nuevo Hotel que conocemos hoy, dentro de un gigantesco predio parquizado y de fachada completamente italiana industrial. Si bien la intención era recibir inmigración sajona y del norte de Europa, la gran masa de gente provino de Italia y España. Varios olas inmigratorias llegaron a Argentina pasando por el Hotel de Inmigrantes, hasta su cierre en 1953. Después de varias décadas, recientemente se volvió a abrir permanentemente bajo el Museo de la Inmigración, habilitándose paulatinamente nuevas salas, y con un centro donde los argentinos pueden averiguar el pasado de su apellido familiar.

On the late 19th Century, for the construction of the new nation was required a bigger amount of manpower and labour. To accomodate the new immigrants after they got out of the boats in the port, and before they could get a house and a job, the Immigration Hotel was built. An octogonal building was constructed before the current huge complex of italian buildings. Though the idea was to get people from England and from the northern countries of Europe, most of the massive amount of immigrante came from Spain and Italy. This hotel was closed in 1953 and lost its importance till a few years ago, when it became the Museum of Immigration, with a calm park and a very interesting system where you can go and check the family tree from the last centuries (if you are from Argentina).
