About Sinclair st apartment,
This building was built 7 years ago, a 807.32sq/ft apartment, Livingroom with 1 bedroom, fully equipment kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and front balcony.
Excellent quality details make it stand out from the others, rationalist style, marble reception lobby with security, elevator, everything is top quality!. The apartment is located on the 4th floor with an excellent view of the Sinclair street trees and has daylight throughout the day. The furniture is new and modern and is fully furnished, all items are in excellent condition (LCD 47´, DVD/CD Player, A/C, Washer, Refrigerator, Microwave).
About the neighborhood is located in the center of Palermo, a very high level area of modern buildings and known by the combination of successful young professionals and bohemians, artists, painters, musicians, etc.
About the area,1.5 blocks to the east are the magnificent 'Bosques de Palermo' where we will find 25 hectares of forests, parks, lakes, rose gardens and famous sculptures. A place where the spirit of young people and families mingle and enjoy an authentic classic in Buenos Aires.
After a couple of blocks south is the 'Jardin Zoologico', 'Plaza Alemania', the 'Jardin Japones', and the embassy & consulates of the United States. 3 blocks to north appears the 'Hipodromo de Palermo' and unique and sophisticated 'Campo de Polo de Palermo'.
The apartment is strategically located to be no more than 10 blocks of “Palermo Soho” and “Palermo Hollywood”. 15 blocks from “Recoleta”. 10 blocks from “Belgrano”. and 5 blocks from “Las Cañitas” and “La Imprenta”. The best known and most visited neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is known as one of the best eating cities in south america and the world. Around the apartment and not more than 5 blocks you will find known and prominent bars and restaurants as “SushiClub” (Excellent sushi!), “Café Martinez” (great breakfasts and also very cheap), “Parrilla La Catedra' (incredible mixture of meat and salad ), Restaurant 'El Trapiche' (Meditarránean, Spanish and Italian cuisine) and the famous 'Parrilla Rio Alba', the best meat in Buenos Aires by far!
If you are wanting to stay home and enjoy the wonderful kitchen that has the apartment, just 4 blocks to the west is 'Jumbo Palermo Mall', where one of the most exclusive supermarket, open from 8:30am to 10:00pm, there will also find clothing stores, hair dressers, bookcases, hardware, etc. If passed the 10pm, no problem!, 2 blocks away is the pantry 'YPF ACA Palermo' open 24/7.
In terms of public transport has bus stops throughout the area, and 5 blocks away is the subway station and train station, both communicated throughout the city.
The apartment is in one of the most exclusive, safe and quiet areas. Pure elegance and good taste distinguish this part of Buenos Aires and do enjoy a good time to those who stay in it.
From the moment you arrived in Buenos Aires, we can make the experience complete!, From going to get you to the airport and transfer to the door of the apartment and find it perfect (flowers, temperature, atmosphere of lights). Make it a welcome mini-tour around the neighborhood. Arrange exclusive visits to places of tango, museums, restaurant. As well also be attentive to any needs that arise during your stay, you will find us a few blocks from the apartment in case you need us. Nothing can go wrong on this trip if you trust us!

Also we may add an Twin Airbed in the Living room for u$10 extra each night.

I'll give the previous reviewers a dubious benefit of the doubt and just assume that the condition of this rental has deteriorated with time, heavy use and neglect. However, I relied on those inaccurate reviews to make our month-long decision to stay there in March, 2018. I would never stay there again.
First, the good. The manager is helpful and responsive. The housekeeper also does an excellent job. The location is very good for an extended stay. It's noisy, but it's a noisy city.
Now, the rest. Except for the balcony chairs, the furniture is very uncomfortable. The sofa is deeply cracked, cheap leather and a real back-breaker. Those red chairs are about as comfortable as they look. The refrigerator often sounds like a muted jackhammer and the LR A/C was even worse. On arrival, we asked the manager to fix it. A technician arrived two days later, said it needed a replacement part and nothing further happened for the entire month of our stay. Fortunately, the weather cooled down and we only needed to run it when we were out of the apartment.
While the housekeeper's weekly cleaning keeps the basics covered, the drapes, rug and bed covers/linens are nothing short of gross. That floor lamp in the photos? Broken and not repaired or replaced during our month-long stay. The door on the washing machine hangs from one hinge. Getting the picture?
All this points to an owner (not the manager) who cares little for the upkeep of this apartment or the comfort of VRBO tenants. Take my word for it. You do not want to stay here.
Thanks for take the time and give this note, unfortunately im not agree at all and seems the rest of the “innacurate reviewers” —as you call our past guest— not too. Seems those past 30 guest who leave a review are not so smart as you, they pass thru a terrible stay in the apartment and just give us a great review.
Now seriously, I never reply a review so i guess this will be the first time and hope the last one.
Sometimes we have different visions at the things with our guest so its my duty take those comments and be open to all the suggestions they can do to offer a better experience to our next future visitors, thats the idea of a review in my personal opinion...., but I will not do that this time considering yours are malicious and deceitful.
In your case I can vote as the worst tenants we have in history of my 7 years working with the apartments, we have more than 300 guest in the past in our four apartments so good job.
I will just mention for good taste not the personal details, just like to share with the rest of the VRBO community that you both not have the minimum interest in the city, attractions or history at all since you arrive. Next time just go to a beach or some theme park, I guess at least that will help you to “relax” a little bit more and will be easier to absorb than a big city with more than 200 years of history and many natural resources to enjoy.
I could have more opinions and review as you both as tenants but I guess it’s unnecessary and tastelessness, I will just recommend to any other landlord who can read this note please not rent your place to those two.
Saludos desde Buenos Aires! Juan
Juan was the deciding factor!
Last year we had booked another one of Juan's properties and knew what a valuable resource he is. Even though I tend to research a lot before travelling, his suggestions on where to go, what to see, where to eat, were spot on. He is very accessible and responds promptly if you have questions or problems that arise.
The apartment itself is in a great location. 5-6 block walk to Subte (subway) on Sante Fe which gets you to Recoletta area in about 15 min and Centro 5 minutes longer. Easy walk to Palermo Soho on the other side of Sante Fe which is very trendy, with lots of great restaurants and coffee shops.
The Argentine Experience, Is a 15min walk from the apartment. The beautiful huge Park system is 2 blocks away across Ave de Libertador. It is a must see for an evening stroll, as it is teaming with people running, roller blading, rentable pedal cars, or families out for an evening of fun. The park is well lit and closed to cars in the evening and weekends. Very safe.
There is a huge outdoor newer Shopping Mall just across Sante Fe on Godoy Cruz, probably 10 minute walk. Also 5 minutes from the apartment is the Hipodrome. Horse races are held usually 3 times a week all year long. The grounds are spectacular, very stately. There are 2 different clubhouses, one for members and one for the general public where you can place a bet for under $2.
The apartment itself is very large and Juan provided us with a Queen size Air mattress for family visitors that stayed with us for 2 weeks. Having the powder room as well as the ensuite main bathroom gave us lots of privacy. Sinclair street was a bit noisy as there is construction going on down the street and you are so close to main streets, but it is a small price to pay for the convenience of being so close to everything....and you are in a major city!
Lots of restaurants and coffee shops down the street or around the block. Best medallunas are across the street at the Boulan Bakery!
You won't be disappointed if you choose to book this apartment.
Just top notch!
Beautiful and well kept. Nice people to rent from. The location is wonderful. Just top notch!
Perfect Central Location, Palermo SUBTE,
This centrally located 4th floor apartment 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath is perfect for one person or a couple. Spacious living room with WIFI and large screen TV, adequate kitchen facilities. Excellent closet, storage space and ample towels. Short walk to the Palermo subway station and scenic walk to Bellas Artes Museum. 1 block from 2 supermarkets, and local restaurants for pizza, sushi, and croissants and coffee. Juan, the owner, met us at the door with the keys. He was very hospitable and accommodating with recommendations for nearby restaurants (Trapiche ****) and site seeing activities . We would definitely recommend this venue and would book for a return stay.
Nicely appointed, well located modern apartment with attentive host
I enjoyed over a week in this stylish, comfortable, and very reasonably priced apartment. It's located on a quiet street in an upscale residential neighborhood. It has a well equipped kitchen in a large open kitchen, dining and living room area and an adjacent half bath. There's a huge flat screen TV (65"?) with cable TV, Apple TV and DVD player. There is a separate bedroom with queen size bed and a full bath. The apartment faces the street on the fourth floor and has a full length balcony with comfortable seating accessible from sliding glass doors in the living room and bedroom. There's a good neighborhood size market around the corner and a variety restaurants within a short walk. A huge park is very close with lakes and a huge rose garden and beautiful Japanese Garden.
The central tourist attractions are accessible via subway, bus or taxi. The subway is a ten minute walk and costs 5 pesos (35 cents US) and taxis are always plentiful on Avenida del Libertador. A ride to La Plaza de Mayo is about 100 pesos ($7 US). There are two stops of the hop-on hop-off tour bus close by (350 pesos for 24 hours- buy on the bus not on-line where it's $37 US) that I used for touring and familiarization with the city on the great recommendation of Juan, the owner. To give you an idea of the scale of the city if you like to walk, it took me about 40 minutes for a very pleasant walk to the Cementerio de Recoleta (I planned to visit for an hour and spent the afternoon!).
Juan was very friendly and helpful with advice. His English was excellent and he accommodated my bad Spanish with grace. He also advised me on a day trip and tour to Montevideo, Uruguay which was well worth the effort (comfortable 2 hour ferry ride each way with tour bus and good restaurant lunch included - rates are most attractive on the weekend). The only glitch I had was the WiFi Internet was down my first two days as Juan worked diligently to get the non-responsive (typical!) cable company to fix the problem. Once operational it was sufficient to stream the nightly news from the US.
The bottom line. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others.
The is an amazing apartment. Bedroom suite on one side, kitchen and cozy living room on the other. Nice outdoor balcony. Modern furnishings, felt like we were living it up. Great for a couple looking to get away in Buenos Aires.
The location is absolutely perfect, loved being near the park for morning runs and the park is closed to cars on weekends making it a fun haven. We walked everywhere (restaurants, shopping, musesums) and the metro is only a few short blocks. Leave room in your suitcase for shoe shopping. Juan is a great host, checking in and gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and things to do bases on our personal interests.
