About Max Thompson

I grew up in Buenos Aires, lived and worked in the United States for many years. Now I am back in Buenos Aires working full time renting my furnished apartments. All of them are located in the Recoleta neighborhood, the best area for you to enjoy the city. I personally take care of my places and make sure they are in perfect conditions for everybody to have a wonderful and pleasant stay. I hope you come visit this wonderful city and stay at my apartment.

Max Thompson purchased this apartment in 2008

Highly recommend this apartment & BsAs

  • 5 of 5

It's a great location, nice building, safe neighborhood. The apartment is exactly as pictured and is clean and well equipped. The air conditioning units are extremely quiet. We used AC because there is street noise with the windows open but when closed it is much quieter and you only hear the buses go by a bit. Food shops are all very near (greengrocer is 2 doors away) and down the block are a laundry, bakeries, cafes, fishmongers, butchers, flower stalls, delis - anything you want including a supermarket open late. ATMs around the corner the other way too on Av. Callao. We spent two weeks here and had a great time in Buenos Aires. There is a lot to do and you can walk all over the city from here or use the buses which are very near. Subte not far either. Max has all kinds of maps and tour guides in the apartment, which were helpful. I recommend going to Teatro Colon for a performance if you can (we saw Mahler's Symphony of a Thousand) and both River Plate and Boca Juniors stadiums were fun to visit. Both are very easy to get to on public transit. Go online to book a tour of Casa Rosada - only weekends or public holidays - but you must book ahead and it's free. We enjoyed the Museo de Bellas Artes, which is less than 10 minutes walk away and is also free so you can do one floor at a time. Another tip is the tango show, Tango Bien, at Borges Cultural Center. Very enjoyable and much less costly than the big dinner and tango shows. The Rose Garden (Paseo de Rosedal) was also beautiful and MALBA enjoyable too. If you need a taxi, it's easy to just flag one down outside the door. We also enjoyed visiting the Palermo and San Telmo neighborhoods. Recommend the Mercado Solidario Bonpland for its lovely tea shop in the back and stalls with organic produce.

Very nice apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This small apartment is very comfortable for a couple. It's clean and looks like it was recently updated. It has a well-equipped kitchen, new tv and excellent wifi. The location is pretty much perfect, two blocks from the Recoleta Cemetary, and within easy walking distance of other popular areas of BA. There's a large grocery store and a number of specialty markets a block away.

Super location, great little place!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great stay in Buenos Aires !

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in this beautiful apartment in one of the best areas of the City. In the middle of everything: restaurants, shops, supermarkets, everything is within walking distance and you can find taxis at the door if there is the need. The owner, Max, was waiting for us and once we got the keys we felt like we were home. We loved the apartment! We hope to be back soon.

I recommend this apartment specially for a couple, like us, who wants a quiet and incredible well located apartment. The Wi-Fi worked very well without interruptions, a big plus in BA. The bed was very comfortable and there was no noise at all from the neighbors nor the street. A great experience, thanks Max!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Never having been to Buenos Aires before, I wasn't entirely sure what I was getting or whether I'd like it. This Recolata apartment is, quite simply, perfect.

First, the location -- not only close to Recoleta cemetery (two blocks) but, even better, it's in a great neighborhood. Cafes, bakeries, meat markets, seafood markets, wine shops and even a supermarket are within a block. If you want a place that makes you feel like you live in Buenos Aires -- this is it!

Second, the apartment is just the right size -- and all the accommodations are first rate. The bath is superb and the kitchen is efficient and well outfitted. I was able to turn out several first class meals with local ingredients -- and never felt at a loss for chef's tools. Add to that the AC, HDTV, WiFi and local phone -- I always felt at home. As a bonus, the in-building apartment manager is a delight!

Finally, it's a great starting point for all your BsAs adventures. I was there a week and walked to my destinations most of the time (including a tango show in San Telmo -- I did take a cab on the return journey and one more to the Caballito neighborhood, but that's it). So, it turned out the apartment is more central than the maps might indicate. All in all, a wonderful stay in a wonderful apartment. And the owner couldn't be more considerate and helpful.

Highly recommended!
