  • Magnificent!!!!

    "My wife and I are nearing the end of a 2 1/2 month stay in this fabulous apartment. This was our third summer stay in BA, and was by far the best. The location is great; never a problem getting a cab. Several bus stops right outside the front door, although we didn't use the buses because cabs are so cheap. The apartment itself is large, very comfortable, and beautifully furnished and equipt; dozens of books on architecture and art. Plenty of hot water. Only 5 apartments in the building; in 2+ months only saw two people in the lobby. Only negative is the noise in both bedrooms; the buses stop just feet from the bedroom windows and the sound of their brakes penetrates the double glazed windows and the silent motorized shutters. A white noise machine handles the traffic noise, but not the buses braking. We tend to be heavy sleepers, so the noise wasn't a major problem. Marcella is super; we had no serious problems during our visit, but she was most responsive in giving us advice and resolving a couple of minor issues. The official conversion rate is currently 8.4 pesos to the dollar, but the "blue" rate is 15.1 peso to the dollar, so we recommend that you carry high denomination dollar bills. Brits and Europeans might well consider carrying US Dollars to convert at the blue rate; The current official rate for euros is 11 pesos; sterling is 13.7 (NO BLUE RATE>>!). We highly recommend this beautiful apartment and we hope to return next summer."

  • Couldn't be happier!

    "Two couples from the US stayed at the apartment for 7 nights in early January. It was a beautiful space and was everything we could have hoped for. Staying in the apartment was so much nicer than a hotel. We felt like real Portenos! Great neighborhood, walking distance to the cemetery, shops, great restaurants, grocery store, "blue market" money exchange, etc. We felt very safe at all times. Beautiful, old building, classic caged elevator, very well-appointed interior. Actually more space than we needed, although so much room was much appreciated. Very quiet. Good wi-fi service. Washer and dryer came in handy. Martin and Martine (?) were very helpful, giving us suggestions for good gelato stops and other conveniences, and going so far as to bring us four new umbrellas to use on a couple of rainy days. Would happily stay here again on a future trip and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other travelers."

  • Peaceful spot in the perfect BA neighborhood

    "My husband stayed here for five nights at the end of our Argentina trip. It is the perfect neighborhood to use as a home base to explore the city. There are lots of nice cafes and restaurants just a few steps away, and it is easy to get around the city from there, by bus or taxi. (We loved eating lunch at The Tea Collection, and getting ice cream cones at Volta!) The apartment faces a quiet courtyard, and combines the convenience of being situated on a major avenue with the pleasure of being able to relax on the little balcony over a garden at the end of the day with a drink. The apartment is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is well-equipped for cooking (although we didn't cook.) The bathroom is a bit small but adequate. We felt secure in the neighborhood and in the apartment. Most importantly, the apartment managers, Raul and Cecilia Franzini, are exceptionally helpful and responsive (in excellent English) to all questions and requests, always answering texts, emails or phone messages within a few minutes. Raul even came on a Sunday and spent an hour fixing some non-functioning lights and repairing the shower head for us. That level of responsiveness and care means a lot, especially when you are 5,000 miles from home and don't speak the language! Definitely recommended."

  • Super location, great little place!

    "My husband and I spent a week in Buenos Aires at this apartment and couldn't have been more satisfied. First of all, we had a great location in a very quiet building, and the apartment owner Max met us at the apartment the morning we arrived from the airport, giving us good local advice for sights, restaurants, transportation etc.. Also, there is a good collection of travel guides that we used extensively. The apartment is small, but a much better set-up than just a hotel room as we had a fully-equipped kitchen, a living room with dining table to spread out in and of course the bed and bathrooms. We never heard noise from any neighbors, and once the windows are closed, the street noise is very minimal. Max added some nice touches like an umbrella (we needed it one day), hair dryer, electrical adapters and a lock box. Visitors can easily pay $100 more per night for a hotel room in this area, but they won't be able to walk down the hall and make a midnight snack or cup of tea when they want in a single hotel room. Live like a Porteno for your stay!"
