"Look no further, this is the place to stay! When I initially found this property, I loved the photos and description but was a little concerned about the few (albeit excellent) traveler reviews. Despite my initial concerns, my family and friends rented the property during our recent stay in Buenos Aires. I am happy to report the description of this property as being "very special" is spot on and no exaggeration. Casa Gorriti is truly a jewel hidden behind a pair of modest front doors. As soon as our group of 7 arrived at Casa Gorriti and stepped inside, we fell in love with this house. The property is beautiful! It has 3 bedrooms, each with an en-suite full bathroom and plenty of closet space. There are also 2 half bathrooms, one located on the ground floor and the other located by the outdoor swimming pool. The house is tastefully decorated, providing a comfortable, warm and relaxing environment. Everything is high quality, and the house is meticulously clean. The small, heated outdoor pool and terraces are great places to relax at the start or end of the day.
The location of Casa Gorriti is perfect and exactly what we hoped for. It is located in upscale Palermo Soho, where restaurants, bakeries, and boutiques are everywhere, and the neighborhood is well kept. A small market is located a mere 2-3 blocks away, and larger supermarkets are only a mere 10-15 minute walk. Taxis are easy to find, if needed, and there are plenty of places to walk and explore.
The property is also managed by excellent staff who rivals any concierge team in a five star hotel. Both Martin, the property manager, and Juan, are consumate professionals who provide outstanding concierge service for their guests. Nothing was a problem for them. We needed private airport transportation for our group of 7, and my 7 friends staying at a nearby rental property, also managed by Martin and Juan. Not a problem, Juan arranged it all. We wanted to do a city tour with our large group of friends also staying in BA. Juan referred us to Maria Corbalan of Bespoke Tours, and Maria flawlessly took care of our group of 32 people. My family and friends wanted to have a private dinner of Argentinean BBQ cooked at one of the rental properties. Martin & Juan referred us to private chef, Augustina Gotelli, who prepared an amazing dinner on very short notice for 28 people. This property and its staff provide the complete package. Something truly special and not to be missed!"
