Great studio apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is extremely comfortable. It has all that one needs and is in a great location. Gustavo was very accommodating and helpful during my stay. It is in a great location as one can walk to many areas of Buenos Aires or it is very near the metro. There are also supermarkets and convenience stores within a few blocks. The apartment is very bright and everything works. One of the nicest things about it is that it is very private. The big widow looking out over the street looks out to some buildings in the distance with no windows to invade your privacy. One never has to close the blinds in the apartment which gives it a much more open appearance. The only problem I had was I wanted to stay longer but it was booked. If I ever returned to the city I would most definitely stay there again.

Location, Location, Location--and Convenience and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Gustavo's studio apartment is beautiful situated in downtown Buenos Aires and equipped for travelers who plan to cook at least one meal a day, a safe and secure and friendly environment. A bit noisy on av. Cordoba, but one adjusts and all the other features compensated, including Gustavo's efficient and helpful hosting. When we asked for a pot to cook pasta, he quickly provided a new one. Very convenient and friendly atmosphere. During a month's stay we came to feel the apartment was home.

Perfect 12th Floor Studio Apartment for Urban Explorers

  • 4 of 5

First, this apartment is simple, clean, and very comfortable. And Gustavo is always available for any needs. He met me at the apartment with a bottle of wine, and when I needed him to provide his telephone number so I could arrange a reservation with a bus service, he kindly called the service and secured my reservation. When he needed to be out of town for a few days, he emailed me to let me know I should contact him via email should I need to do so. This apartment is centrally located, so bus and subway to any other parts of the city is ideal. If you are a taxi person, they are readily available. The neighborhood of narrow streets is humming with actIvity during the day--good coffee shops (NEGRO--three locations, and SHOUT), lunch and dinner restaurants, laundry service, verdularias (for vegetables and fruits), small chain markets for necessities, and a very good liquor store right across the street. At night, after business hours, there are good spots for "after hours" (happy hour), such as ON TAP--CRAFT BEER and other spots. Later, the neighborhood empties out, and you will want to explore food and music and cultural events in other barrios. Although, don't overlook cultural giants close by such as Teatro Colon and Centro Cultural Kirchner. The studio apartment is close to Parque San Martin, as well, a beautiful large park where I enjoyed taking up a bench and reading and watching all varieties of Buenos Aires humans on several sunny afternoons. I would highly recommend this studio for one or two people who are motivated to explore the city and want a central location.

Owner's Response: Steven is a great guest. Everything was within the terms we had agreed. I met him and his Daugther Ari and they are both really nice people. Steven took the time to tell us about his experience staying at our apartment, and we love to receive feedback to keep improving, so we are thankful. Thank you so much Steven, we hope we can receive you again in the near future !!

Gustavo te recibe en su departamento con dos botellas de agua, detalle que es de agradecer ya que uno llega al departamento cansado tras muchas horas de vuelo. Es sin duda todo un detallazo, por que también te recibe con una botella de vino para cualquier ocasión especial durante tu estadia en su departamento. Fue muy amable y atento en todo momento en que hablé con el y también es muy amable la Señora Norma con quien mantuve una conversación mientras limpiaba el depto. Son personas muy agradables igual que el departamento, que tiene una ubicación perfecta y es tal cual en las fotos, cama cómoda, baño cómodo y cocina cómoda con muchos utensilios necesarios para cocinar y que uno se sienta en su propia casa. Lo recomiendo 100% y el año que viene, cuando regrese a Argentina, seguramente vuelvo a alojarme en este departamento si está disponible.

Owner's Response: Estamos muy agradecidos con Leo por sus comentarios y por su cordialidad. Sabemos que él conoce mucho Buenos Aires  (hasta tiene acento porteño!) por eso es un doble honor que él vuelva a elegirnos. Leo, le contamos a la señora Norma de tus comentarios, y se puso muy contenta. Te esperamos nuevamente! Gustavo & Ines :-)

Una semana en Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

Muy buen departamento en pleno Microcentro porteño, el inmueble cuenta con todo lo necesario para una estadía más que grata en la ciudad, se encuentra bien ubicado y la atención y cordialidad de sus dueños es de primera. Realmente recomiendo el sitio a viajeros que viajen solos, parejas o familias. La zona, el confort del departamento y la amabilidad de los dueños son realmente reseñables. Espero volver pronto.

Car: not necessary

You don't need to take a bus or subway to get to where all famous places and attractions are located! Our apartment is located next door to the most important 5 stars hotel in the city, and is just:

- One block away from Galerias Pacifico and Florida street, the choice of tourists for shopping in Downtown;

- Three blocks away from Corrientes Avenue, with the main cultural options in the city;

- A few blocks (walking across the famous Florida street) away from Plaza de Mayo, #1 attraction for its political, cultural and architectural history;

- Three blocks away from Plaza San Martin with many historical buildings;

- Five blocks away from Puerto Madero

And if you want to visit other neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, we are a few blocks away of all Subway lines and the main train station: Retiro.
