Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
This gorgeous light filled two bedroom, two and a half bath Penthouse sits atop a brick and iron retro-styled building in stylish Palermo Soho, at the corner of Fray Justo Santamaria de Oro ('Oro') and Paraguay, walking distance to numerous fantastic restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries, bookstores and transportation. The two story loft has 18 foot ceilings, with over 1000 square feet of interior living area, and a tiled wrap around exterior terrace of over 500 square feet.
The double height living room and kitchen are surrounded by floor to ceiling windows for sunlight throughout the day. Elegantly decorated with a mid-century modern aesthetic, the apartment boasts an Eames style chair (now different from photo!), our newly recovered and now beautiful red sofa, new bar stools (different from photo!) Jorge Pensi aluminum terrace chairs, and numerous vintage pieces. Three spectacular large paintings by Milo Lockett, a well known Argentinian contemporary artist, hang in the kitchen.
Equipped with radiant heat flooring, the concrete first level invites your bare feet. The stairs, upper bedroom, and office area have hard wood flooring.
Both bedrooms have custom made beds with luxury Four Seasons queen sized mattresses and 100% Egyptian cotton linens. Since so much light fills each room of the apartment, blackout shades are provided in the bedrooms so that sleeping in is not problem after late Soho nights out. There are large custom installed closets for each bedroom, the downstairs one containing a security safe. Each bedroom has its own private full bathroom with shower and tub, custom tile work and heavy weight 100% cotton towels. There is an additional half bath downstairs just off of the living room.
Free wireless high-speed internet access, a Phillips 37-inch-LCD flat-screen TV, DVD player, stereo system, GSM cell phone with local number, and a local phone line with unlimited local phone calls are all provided.
The wrap around terrace is a perfect place to relax and enjoy evening refreshments after a day wandering in lively Palermo Soho or nearby Palermo Hollywood. The location of the loft allows for easy access to all of Soho and Hollywood by foot, and is a mere two blocks from the subway should you want to visit the famous Recoleta cemetery or other neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The Penthouse sits by itself, a full eight stories above the street, far above the traffic-- perfect for great city views and quiet nights.

Great location; good bones, needs maintenance
First and foremost, the owner and the concierge team are incredibly responsive and accommodating. The penthouse is at the top of a modern 4 story brick building in a well-located area of Palermo SoHo. Easy to catch taxis or grab a quick coffee or bite across the street at Tacita de Cafe (opens an 9am). Lots of commerce around the area mixed with residential buildings. Half a block down on Oro, there is an express market for everyday needs - Carrefour Express.
I felt really safe in this building with double locked doors that only residents can access. The apartment itself is well-built with a huge terrace by BA standards. The double height windows bring a lot of light, but if you visit in the Summer, be prepared to use the AC units as it can get a bit warm. We found that if we closed the drapes, the apartment stayed cool without much need of an AC. We liked the modern layout.
The only concerns we had with the apartment were the same as the guest from December 2017: the microwave was broken - they replaced it in a couple of days. The floors (concrete) were dirty and the soles of your feet would turn black - keep in mind BA is a huge city so you track in all sorts of dirt into the home. We paid for extra maid service to make sure the floors were clean and we began to leave our shoes outside the front door to stop dragging in dirt - that helped. The safe in the apartment didn’t work the entire time we were there. First week, it was locked and when they fixed it, we had no instructions on how to work it. I suggest instructions are added to the home guide provided. The kitchen sink has a couple of issues: the faucet splashes all over the place and then water puddles towards the back counter - I suspect there may be a leveling issue with the kitchen counter. The whole apartment could benefit from a fresh coat of paint and having all drapes and curtains dry cleaned. The drapes to the terrace are dirty and stained, and it looks like the drapes in the living room have water marks from rain or a storm. The master bathroom downstairs has a foul sewer smell - we kept the bathroom window open and the door closed to ventilate it. Fortunately, the team provided an air freshener to mitigate the smell in the rest of the suite. Also, the pilot light on the water heater went out.
Despite the maintenance, we loved the penthouse, the owner, and the locale. We would come back for sure - particularly if they fix it.
Thank you for such a thoughtful review! We have forwarded it to our managers, and will make sure curtains are cleaned asap. We are purchasing a new rug and have scheduled painters, as well. It's our aim to maintain the property in excellent condition, and will make every effort to have it in tip top shape. Glad you enjoyed your stay!
As pictured, upkeep to be desired
We spent New Year's Eve/Day-3rd at the apartment. The apartment was lovely but it appears there may have been a gap between rentals as there were numerous maintenance/cleanliness issues. We kept finding them throughout our stay. I emailed and the management company was apologetic but nothing was done because of the holiday. They sent the maid the day after but we were not expecting her, so did not recognize a door bell. The floor was filthy and required constant sock wearing, or foot washing. The faucet in the bathroom sink upstairs did not run hot water. The light bulbs in many of the lights in the living room were blown, or without light bulbs. The microwave didn't work when I went to heat up leftovers. All people with whom I emailed were pleasant and they arranged our transfers, which was appreciated, but we would have rather had the apartment clean and maintained for our stay.
Looks as charming as the pictures!
Great space, well appointed kitchen, perfect for 2-4 people. Palermo Soho is a fun neighborhood and convenient to transportation, bars, restaurants and museums.
ideally located, grand modern loft, resplendent with natural light
This charming 2 level flat is surrounded by chic shopping and dining on the Palermo Soho district. Its a pleasant stroll from major parks and monument as well as main public transportation routes. It feels like you are living amongst the locals in this neighborhood. The building and the flat are modern and well maintained. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space, as well as natural light. There is even free shared laundry in the building!
We had the time of our lives exploring the culture, museums, shopping, dining and night life from excellent home base in Buenos Aires.
Enjoyed Our Stay
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The building is very nice, the location is good and the apartment is clean and comfortable. We didn't have any issues and would recommend staying here. The management is also very on top of things and friendly!
6 nights in Buenos Aires
The apt was very nice and the building secure. We were two adult couples with plenty of private space and also common area to share. The property management company was exceptional arranging for private transfer two and from airport. Upon arrival also gave us a complete overview of the local area. The metro transportation was a close walk and a very easy way to gain access to many parts of the City. Couple of housekeeping issues would be the apt could use a fresh coat of paint and more bath towels would have been nice. Overall it was a great value.
The Penthouse Loft is in Palermo Soho with wonderful restaurants, bars, cafes, galleries, shops, and so much more walking distance from the apartment.
