The Space

This is a very comfortable pull-out sofa in the living room of my apartment. T

he apartment has a full bath, kitchen, and small office area. It is equipped with Wi-Fi and cable TV. The location is perfect: In Recoleta/Barrio Norte and just one block to the subway and two blocks to world-famous Santa Fe Avenue. It is just a seven-block walk to the Recoleta Cemetery - home to Evita Peron.

My building was constructed in the late 1950's and is considered to be Rationalist in design. The lobby, lined with dark wood, has a very Art Deco feel to it and my apartment does as well.

The prior owners, a young doctor and banking executive, completely remodeled my apartment just one year before I moved in, installing Italian marble in the bathroom and granite kitchen tops and all new appliances. The floors are the original parquet wood floors from the original owners.

I also have an extra mobile phone with a local # you can borrow while here. You just need to add credit to it.

  • I was very pleased to be so lucky to find such a place as Matt's. He is a delightful person and so we could spend a nice diner talking with him. He showed us around and gave us tips about places of our interest. He was most helpful. in everything we needed.
    I definetely recomend his place. Matt is a very tidy clean person too. So no worries to be staying at his appartment.
    Thank you Matt, we enjoyed meeting you.

  • Absolutely stellar. Matt's apartment is very well-furnished, and probably the only place in my whole stay in South America in which i felt the air conditioning was adequate! He is also an ideal host. I basically felt like I got a free tour of Buenos Aires, with his expertise, and truly ideal advice about what to do while there. If I hadn't started my trip at his place, I wouldn't have had half as much fun.

  • Me hospedar no charmoso apartamento do (website hidden) Recoleta. foi uma decisão muito acertada. A localização é excelente de verdade. mesmo a noite não há sensação de insegurança e as pequenas ruas que cercam o prédiio são cheias de vida. Quanto a estadia foi a mais tranquila possível, e acreditem, o sofa cama é muito confortável de verdade! Mat recebe muito bem e nos dá suporte com ótimas dicas sobre a cidade. Quando forem a buenos aires este é um ótimo lugar para passarem seus dias por lá. E um último conselho, quando forem a buenos aires e se hospedarem na casa do Mat, não deixem de comer as fabulosas empanadas do LA NUEVA GATA! super perto do apartamento. Obrigado por me receber Mat e até breve.

  • My review of Matt is short and sweet. I didn't want to leave! That should say everything.

  • My stay with Matt was great. I initially thought staying in the living room might be close quarters, but it really wasn't a problem in the end. Matt was also an excellent host. He showed me around town, and since I was staying in Buenos Aires for a while, gave me lots of tips about local culture and ways to make living here easier. He's also a really open, nice guy, with interesting stories to share.

I'm an expatriate from the USA who has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina since early 2007. I work full-time but can accommodate one person most nights of the week. I worked in tourism my first year in Buenos Aires, so (time allowing!), I'd also be happy to give you a walking tour of Recoleta and the surrounding neighborhoods in the evenings or weekends and, of course, fill you in on the best places to eat, drink and be merry!
