  • Excelent apartment in San Telmo!

    "I spent 8 days with my family. The house is just 30 meters from Dorrego Square, which is the central life point in San Telmo. The very old and traditional San Telmo market is also half-block away. The apartment itself has all you need to spent a good holiday time, including good wine glasses, which are fundamental when travelling in Buenos Aires. Martin Aguilera, which is the contact point in Buenos Aires is an amazing guy who helped us with all local subjects and suggestions. The apartment also had a local mobile phone which is available for using during your stay. You only need to add credit. I strongly recommend to stay at this house! Even considering that the subway is not so far away (10-12 minutes walk), the bus lines in Buenos Aires operate very well and they can help to reach all the main spots in the city."

  • A fun stay :)

    "Spacious with all amenities as described. Ruben was very responsive and we didn't have any issues. As it was our 3rd time to BA we were familiar with the area and could easily move around. As some of us were light sleepers the room at the entrance was close to the street so you would have passing pedestrians which didn't bother us but good to know. We did use the BBQ which was great for hosting people and worked out better than expected. Cafe Rivas was a block away and had good breakfast, lunch which was perfect before we headed out to other areas. I would stay there again."

  • Character in historic barrio

    "This apartment is a nice way to experience living inside a typical San Telmo conventillo, with several lovely, wide doorways, high ceilings, a wrought iron balcony, and a number of modern updates. The pictures are accurate. The kitchen is adequately equipped for basic meal preparation; very nice to have a clothes washer; we especially liked the unique clothes drier. With selective use of the shutters and cross ventilation, we needed the air conditioning only when temperatures exceeded 30 Celcius. Over our two week stay, our sleep was disrupted on three nights by loud music and people noise. Rush hours traffic noise was daily from 4:30 to 7:00PM. The information binder was an excellent reference! Both the owner and her manager were very responsive to our inquiries and concerns. San Telmo is an interesting spot to get immersed in!"

  • Girls' Trip

    "I am a 54 year old woman and I and another (younger) woman stayed for a week at this charming apartment with character. It had plenty of space for us. The kitchen was modern and it, the dining room and living room had wonderful floor to (high) ceiling doors that opened onto 4 balconies overlooking the street, provided light and a breeze. The street could be busy at times, but we weren't bothered by it at night since the bedrooms are in the rear. The main bathroom was large, tiled, and had a nice shower and lots of counter and storage space. We didn't use the other bathroom, which had a smaller shower. Neither of the bedrooms has a closet, however, there is a large one in the hall that we hung clothes in. The bedrooms on the main floor were spacious, however, there were no dressers or storage spaces for belongings. We didn't use the upstairs bedroom, which was small with a water closet and twin bed. The only thing that I think would improve the place would be to put light bulbs in the ceiling fixtures in the bedrooms and hallway to make them brighter. Both bedrooms had small desk lamps to light the entire room, which made them a bit dark. We loved the San Telmo neighborhood and one of our favorite days was exploring and photographing all the interesting street art and graffiti. We never felt unsafe, but we were aware of our surroundings, went with our gut instincts, and weren't out walking late at night. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again or recommend it to friends who want to stay in this area. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and interesting shops within walking distance, and it is possible to walk to the center of the city (Plaza de Mayo) if you want a little more exercise. We also used the Subte nearby, although if really late at night walking back from the station to the apartment would feel a little sketchy. Federico met us at the apartment and even arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and return us at the end of our stay, which was a considerable convenience. He provided us with a small cell phone that we could use to make local calls and there was WiFi, however, it was a little unreliable. We found it worked best when only one device was using it at a time. The owner of the apartment was easy to work and communicate with, so arranging our stay went smoothly. She also provided us with a list of places to visit, things to do, and restaurant recommendations. Overall great stay here and we hope to return some day."
