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."

"Location may be everything, but comfort is equally important. We loved both. We were four adults and one child, and this apartment easily accommodated our needs...and then some. And we spent one month in the apartment. The beds and bedding are top notch. The bathrooms are stylish and functional. The entire home is uncluttered and tastefully decorated--including five paintings by Palermo Hollywood artist, Milo Lockett-- having been completely renovated and restored recently. The kitchen is modern, with everything you need to cook a meal. Though the apartment within a quick walk of really great restaurants (we ate Cumana and Parilla Peña 4 times each during the month), bars (for example, there are 4 English-speaking bars within a block or 3: Casa Bar, El Alamo, Temple bar, and Shamrock), cafés (Havanna on the corner Starbucks down the lane) and bakeries (medialunas are everywhere). There are also large grocery stores (Disco and Carrefour) within a short walk, while smaller grocers are just about every block.
Shopping. Av Santa Fe is loaded with shops to fit any budget and is one block from the apartment. And just a few blocks north on Rodriguez Peña or Callao and you'll stumble onto the more posh shops. The Ricoleta cemetery is near loads of these shops.
transportation. Taxis are easy to catch on the corner across from Havanna. Collectivos down on Santa Fe, and the Subte is an easy walk down Callao (green and red lines). Short taxi ride will get you to Palermo, San Telmo, or Boca.
Safety. This is a very safe neighborhood, and really there wasn't a moment we didn't feel completely secure.
Eliana and Patrick were great help during check in/out and on the few occasions when we has questions.
We loved Buenos Aires and the apartment made seeing and experiencing all of it all the more rewarding. Thank you!"

"This is a beautiful apartment in the best part of Recoleta in BA. There is an excellent bakery right across the street for breakfast treats and more. The grocery store (Disco) is right around the corner. The property managers Martin and Raphael are super guys who are always available to answer questions and help in any way. The apartment is beautiful and the beds (2 king size) are very comfortable. It was nice to have working and reliable Wi-Fi as well. Beyond all of this, the property owner, Steve is just a wonderful guy. You should rent this apartment just for that reason alone. He was super easy to deal with and very flexible with early check in and late check out. The reason that I'm running for president of Steve's fan club is because we were literally trapped in BA during the volcano eruption in Chile. Steve made it so easy for us to stay in the apartment beyond our check out day (4 extra days) and I can't thank him enough for that. If I go back to BA I would not consider any other place to stay for sure!!"
