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
Other Things to Note
Maid service is included once a week, sheets and towels replace. All services included in the price.
If the apartment is not available for the dates you`re looking for let me know that i have another apartment close to it
Please don´t make to much noise at night
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.
Really nice stay in Buenos Aires. Carlos offered us the best help.
He gave us great advices to explore the city and was always available for questions.
The place is great, lot is space, great location and nice design. Thanks
We stayed at this residence for 2 weeks. The place is centrally located in Centro. We walked to all of the major attractions. We were one block off Florida street, the main shopping street. The location is just perfect. The suite itself is very fresh and upbeat and has all of the conveniences for a long stay. It is clean and well kept. The building is on a narrow street (all the streets downtown are narrow) and the sidewalk is rough but you are only steps from a good sidewalk on the next street.Although the suite is great, the main reason you stay here is because of the host, Carlos. He was just wonderful with us. We arranged to have him pick us up at the airport which made our arrival in a strange city very easy. He gave us guidance to restaurants, museums, attractions and many other suggestions. Over the course of 2 weeks Carlos became a friend and we shared many interesting conversations. He speaks perfect English for all of the English speaking visitors although I was trying to practice my poor Spanish.
In summary, you have location, location, location, good price and a great host.
Carlos made an incredible effort to make us happy. He was available and responsive to all requests and made some great suggestions. The flat was amazing and had everything you needed. Modern, well decorated and central. 5 stars! Thank you 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.
