Interaction with Guests
I will be in the apartment during the Check In and Check Out. I leave my phone open for any doubts and problems you may have during your stay. I also make good suggestions of what to do and where to shop in the Nearby. Please let me know your estimate check in or out time before making the reservation and take into consideration that when someone enters/exits the apartment on the same day you do exit/enter check in or outs could have a limit of 10 am for check outs and 12 midday for check ins. For that reason i advice you book the hole day for half the price of a day, just in case someone else books on the same day you leave or enter. You can always leave your bags in the building free of charge. I also offer transfer service for a moderate price.
The apartment is located Downtown, surrounded by pedestrian streets which make the neighborhood a more calm place than what it used to be. That brings the best of both worlds because you get the calm of the surroundings, free of cars, and the benefits of the city, with theaters, the most important shopping street, shoppings, good restaurants, best means of transport and the posibility to get to know all the tourist attractions with less effort
All means of transport at wallking distance

Leave Garbage over the ladder every day
The Apartment should be in the same conditions during the Check Out as it was left during the Check In.
Excelente departamento, ubicado en el centro de la ciudad. Carlos nos ayudo mucho. Muy recomendable.
The apartment is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. We loved the decor and selection of Argentine books and records. It was the perfect home base for our week in Buenos Aires. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for basic cooking. The location is great too: it's right downtown, surrounded by plenty shops and restaurants, and a short walk from the B, C, and D Subte lines.
Our flight got in very early in the morning. We offered to wait a few hours to meet Carlos at a more reasonable time, but he said it would be no problem to meet us at the apartment at 6 am. After walking us through the apartment, he got out a map and proceeded to orient us to the neighborhood and how to get to all the major destinations around the city. It was a great welcome; he made us feel right at home.
When we come to BA again, we will absolutely stay there.
Great apartment in perfect location in downtown Buenos Aires. Carlos was there on time for both check in and out. Well appointed and functional. Comfortable bed, and usable kitchen. We would certainly stay there again. This was the best of several apartments we rented in Buenos Aires.

About the Host, Carlos
Soy un apasionado lector de todo lo que tenga que ver con la innovación y nuevas formas de ver el mundo. Creo que Airbnb representa alguna de esas nuevas corrientes a través del la economía de la reputación y el colaboracionismo. Mis horas de trabajo las ocupo en proyectos relacionados con la tecnología y la creatividad. Soy un amante del deporte en todas sus variedades y me encantaría viajar mucho mas de lo que me lo permite mi presupuesto.
Situado en un edificio historico es una parada obligatoria para el shopping y vista de lo mejor de la arquitectura de buenos aires en sus años de oro. El techo del edificio es impresionanteSan Martin Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires
