Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The place was exceptional. A small cozy studio, very well located, has a nice balcony, very well decorated. Good quality furniture, comfortable bed, hot shower, etc. Everything perfect. The location is also great, close to the subway. The Santa Fe Avenue is a bit busy and ugly, but is still worth it. I'd highly recommend staying there.
    When we got there, Marcelo was waiting for us and showed the apartment, gave a few tips, etc. They even left us some fruits, water and cereal bars. Very nice reception! :)

  • Ralf lists a few excellent apartments on here and represents a premier apartment rental company in Buenos Aries. Every apartment is in excellent condition and the level of service and the entire experience working with him and his company is top notch. I would not hesitiate to rent any apartment Ralf is listing. His staff were multi-lingual and provided many recommendations on things to do and see in Buenos Aries. His company even arranged airport transfers for us and helped us book reservations for tango shows. Check In was smooth and the whole process was a pleasure.

  • This apartment was perfect. In a great location, with views of the city from the balcony.

    Ralf kept the apartment in pristine condition, even equipped with a fruit plate, coffee, and tea.

    Highly recommend.

  • Second visit to Urban Escapes and super impressed that Ralf had read my last review and changed things to ensure my very minor criticism was overcome. For those of you that don't know, I commented that the towels and lack of toiletries weren't up to the same standard as the rest of the apartment. Can't say that any longer! Very impressed Ralf and team.
    For us it was like returning home after a trip away. Love the location, the facilities and the service. These guys know how to run a good business and pay attention to their clients needs. The apartment is very well equipped and we are considering a third visit in a few months time. We are so glad we found Ralf and team and will be recommending that all our Uk and Chilean friends and family give them a try when they visit Buenos Aires. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

  • Excellent from the minute we first enquired to the moment we left. The apartment was accurately described and more. The bed was super comfortable and had a bonus of memory foam pillow. The small kitchenette was well appointed and the coffee machine and kettle used a lot. Great amount of storage for our 3 night stay. We loved the view from the balcony and whiled away a few hours watching the birds, stars, city, thunderstorms and sunsets.

    The only thing that could possibly be a criticism would be the bathroom. The towels are not up to standard - very bedraggled. Only one bathrobe and just two tiny bars of soap. Would have liked some shampoo and shower gel. But I guess it's not sold as a hotel.

    We liked the location between the edge of Recoleta and Palermo, which was what we were expecting as we've visited BA before. Very easy to get shopping, visit bars and restaurants, or popping out for a late night ice cream. We didn't find the noise of the city disturbing but our apartment was at the back of the building.

    The pool had just been cleaned and was being refilled so we didn't use it, or the gym, but they both looked ok. Liked having a doorman to let us in and out of the building.

    I think this is a great find and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, and others owned by BA4U. They've put a lot of thought into what people need during their stay. This apartment comes with a useful landline where calls are free to local numbers (great for booking taxis or take outs), iPod docks and speakers, ac, extension cables so you don't need to hunt for a socket, tv, clock radio, good supply of tea bags and coffee, hair dryer, iron and board, safe and plenty of hangers. In the basement of the block there are washers and driers too.

    All the staff we met were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Don't take my word for it though - book to stay here and you won't be disappointed. We weren't and we are looking forward to going back there next week!

  • Choosing the Urban Scape from BA4U apartments was the best thing we could be done. The apartment is exactly the one showed in the pictures. The bed is perfect to give you an invigorating sleep to wake up well next day. The kitchen appliances are very usefull and totally clean. The apartment as well as the bathroom were very clean, exactly as we were looking for. Also, the building is very good and the localization is excellent. We strongly recommend this apartment for you stay in Buenos Aires. Another facility offered by BA4U was the transfer from/to the airport. I had booked it and I had no problem. Besides all the aforementioned, the BA4U staff is very attentive, lovely, lively. Half and Tomas was very attentive while we were booking the apartment by meas of Airbnb. Marcelo and Andres were very attentive and welcoming when we got at the apartment. I have no negative point about Urban Scape or BA4U personal. We really recomend. Thank you guys!

    Escolher o Urban Scape da BA4U foi a melhor coisa que poderíamos ter feito. O apartamento é exatamente como mostrado nas fotos. A cama é perfeita para dar-lhe um sono revigorante para acordar bem no dia seguinte. Os utensílios de cozinha são muito útil e totalmente limpo. O apartamento, bem como o banheiro são muito limpos, exatamente como nós estávamos procurando. Além disso, o prédio é muito bom e a localização é excelente. Recomendamos este apartamento para a sua estadia em Buenos Aires. Outra facilidade oferecida pelo BA4U foi a transferência de/para o (website hidden) reservei esse serviço e não tive nenhum problema. A equipe do BA4U é muito atenciosa, amável e alegre. Half e Tomas foram muito atenciosos, enquanto estávamos reservando o apartamento pelos site Airbnb. Marcelo e Andrés foram muito atenciosos e acolhedores quando chegamos no (website hidden) não tenho nenhum ponto negativo sobre Urban Scape ou sobre o pessoal do BA4U. Altamente recomendável. Valeu pessoal.

  • The Urban Escape apartment on Avenida Santa Fe is aptly described. What a great location on the 13th floor facing away from the busy Avenida. If you like bustling cities you love the vibe as you exit your apartment building. The unit is exactly as described and quite comfortable. Herr Ralf has trained his team to be responsive and professional. Our shuttle ride from the international arrival terminal, arranged by Tomas, was smooth and efficient and while slightly more expensive than other options I would still recommend it. For shuttles to the domestic airport we would suggest a regular taxi - both less expensive and not subject to any snafus with private drivers. Marcello met us at our apartment and gave us a very thorough introduction to all the details relating to the unit and other amenities. He is a great resource for any of your questions about safely visiting the city. All in all just a great place and should problems arise Ralf and his team always respond. We would recommend Ralf and his team for your stay in BsAs.

  • Our stay in this apartment went very smoothly thanks to the attentive BA4U team. It's a compact space but perfect for one or two people. They had coffee for the coffee machine, a variety of fresh fruit and a bottle of water waiting for us which was much appreciated! In general, we preferred staying in Palermo because of the restaurants and neighborhood atmosphere but Recoleta has much to offer if you want to easily explore the museums, shopping areas, and famous cemetery.

  • The studio is very well located to discover the city, closed to all shops and to the metro. The little swimming poool on the roof is fantastic to have rest after walking all the day in Buenos Aires. The building os very secured .The studio is well decorated with wifi and TV. The kitchen is equiped with all that you need. Marcello and Ralf heplped us during our stay and duirng our difficult check out because of climatic and "toxic" conditions on B.A

Director Ba4u apartments
Although a German national, I have actually resided outside of my native country for almost half my life. My first ventured abroad to Greece where I worked in guest relations at a premier hotel in Athens. From there I moved to Sydney, Australia where he held an post as personal assistant to a major politician within the Australian Parliament. Soon, with a desire to be more independent, I followed my instincts and in Sydney I opened, managed and ultimately sold, two very successful natural food and juice bars. It was then, in 2007, When I decided to return to a place which I had visited some years before---BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA---and now, it is the place I call home!
