Condo/Apartment
Charming apartment on top floor of very central 100yr old building - walk to Obelisco or Recoleta in under 15 minutes, or use the nearby subte (metro) lines and buses to go almost anywhere in the city. Great for people who want to see all of the city (or dance tango until dawn) and then come home to a quiet place with comfortable beds. Building has an elevator. Two double bedrooms each with individual hot and cold air-conditioning, lovely bed linens and feather pillows and duvets. Nice towels and bathrobes too. One has a private balcony, and the apartment has access to the communal terrace (on the same floor). The 'quiet room' off the living area can be a third bedroom (without air conditioning) if three singles want to use the apartment. Bathroom has full tub and shower with endless gas ...Charming apartment on top floor of very central 100yr old building - walk to Obelisco or Recoleta in under 15 minutes, or use the nearby subte (metro) lines and buses to go almost anywhere in the city.

The 'quiet room' off the living area can be a third bedroom (without air conditioning) if three singles want to use the apartment. Bathroom has full tub and shower with endless gas hot water so you can take nice long showers after walking around the city all day or dancing all night. Linen is changed weekly when the apartment is cleaned, but extra clean bed linen, towels and consumables are available on request. Nice little things in the bathroom include shampoo and shower gels, hairdrier and straightener. And the kitchen has a good starter kit including coffee, tea, milk etc when you arrive. Friendly English speaking owner lives 50 metres away and will come at any time to give advice or fix any problems. Or just to chat if you want that. This apartment has wifi, plenty of reading material, yoga mat, radio, and even nice little extras, like maps, city and bus guides, umbrellas, first aid kit. No TV - most of our guests have better things to do. Sorry, but this apartment is not suitable for small children as the balcony and terrace are not child-proof and it would be a long way to fall. And not suitable for anyone who could not use the stairs in an emergency (remember this is on the top floor). No smoking inside but guests may smoke on the balcony or terrace. Generally no pets, but ask if you have a well behaved, quiet dog. Early check in and/or late check out may be available. If this is important to you, please let us know. More

Lovely apartment, very central and the owner had even left basics in the kitchen, like milk, eggs, butter, coffee, tea, which was a pleasant surprise. She also arranged the transfers in taxi for us which was another very good service we appreciated. She has a...More

For my husband, six year old daughter and me, it was our first time in Argentina so we had no idea what to expect. This was a nice apartment in an extremely old building - about a century so don’t expect flashy and modern. It...More

About the neighbourhood
Great central location - easy public transport to all the places you will want to go as a tourist. Walking distance (15 minutes) to Obelisco (the centre of the city), Teatro Colon (the famous Opera House), Congreso or Recoleta cemetary (Evita's tomb). One quick 10 minute trip on the subte to the hundreds of restaurants at Puerto Madero. The bus to San Telmo and La Boca passes by only one block away. Also convenient for conferences at the Med School, Economics or Social Sciences faculties. the College of Translators, and easy access by subte (metro) to the Sheraton conference centre or the large exhibition space at La Rural in Palermo. Perfect for tango dancers as several milongas (including El Beso) are close by and most others are easily accessible by public transport. Close to DNI...
