This apartment is located in the middle of the city of Buenos Aires :) Welcome to downtown Buenos Aires! Please note: This Jewel is NOT in Palermo, nor in Barrio norte or Recoleta!!! This turn of the century Jewel is located in down town Buenos Aires, barrio de Cogreso, which is a busy neighborhood, and just because of that, you are close to the most authentic version of life (not truistic) in Buenos Aires. You are in the middle of many great Shopping malls, as well as small shops, and fantastic turn of the century restaurants, such as Café de Los Angelitos right next door! Also, since you are in downtown, you are very close (walking distance) to many famous Milongas (Tango clubs) and salsa clubs as well. This beautiful apartment is one block from Rivadavia, 3 blocks from Callao and 3 blocks from Corrientes which is the Broadway street of Buenos Aires, where many fantastic shows are being shown on nightly basis. There are many types of transportations right around this apartment. Taxis are abundant, as well as buses, and there are subway stations on all 3 major streets named. In minutes you can visit the Famous Colón Theater, walk through the Plaza de Mayo while feeding the pigeons, and drink café con crema in the famous Café Tortoni where Gardel and Borges used to have coffee. By taking the subway you can visit the zoo, the beautiful botanical gardens, as well as the Japanese garden, and the huge rose garden in Palermo. Don’t forget the Recoleta cemetery and the fantastic shopping mall and museums in that area. There is much to see and appreciate in Buenos Aires and you are so close to all of them! Enjoy!!!!!
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My name is Becka, My husband Caro, and I have been dancing tango for more than 15 years. We traveled to Buenos Aires in 2004, just to dance and have fun, but we got lucky and accidentally saw this French Renaissance beauty, which was totally run-down and in a very bad shape. It was love at first sight. We fell in love with it and for two years after that, we traveled to BA many many times and shopped at many antique stores to be able to reface, remodel and revive this beautiful historic apartment. Since then this apartment has been a heaven for us, and many other travelers and visitors. I invite you to come and stay here and experience the elegance of the past and be mesmerized with the beauty and charm of this exquisite apartment. I assure you, you will love it!
Why the Owner Chose Congreso (Monserrat, Buenos Aires, Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Argentina):
By staying at this turn of the century apartment, you will feel the elegance of yesterdays, and the comfort of today. All the furniture in this beautiful apartment has been bought from the antique stores and refurbished to make you feel like royalties. Come and enjoy being a King or the Queen of the house. Also by being in the middle of down town, you are close to many activities and fun places and have access to all types of transportations. By staying here, you can certainly feel how this city runs, and can understand the culture of Portenos (people born in the port of Buenos Aires).
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I remember the first time I saw this apartment... I was so amazed at the beauty and elegance of the walls and intricate wood floors and yet I felt so sorry to see it rundown, and so lonely and damaged. I felt I heard a calling to bring it back to life! . That is why I decided to buy this gorgeous apartment and revive it with modern necessities and make it livable and enjoyable as it used to be. Up to this day, I feel mesmerized by its beauty and elegance, and so privileged to have the chance of staying there. I assure you, you will feel the same…..
