Interaction with Guests
Sara and I live in the house. We are fully available all day and night. We like to share time with our guests and make their stay a great stay.
Among the architectural features in Balvanera are the neo-classical Congress building and the statue group in neighboring Plaza Congreso. The El Molino tea room is located across the street in a building that has seen several rounds of restoration since its heyday.
The café Los Angelitos in the corner of Rivadavia and Rincón was a meeting point for poets and musicians. It features a relief of angels in its façade, which is one of the landmarks of the barrio. After extensive restorations, it was reopened in 2007, now it offers live tango shows and it has become a tourist landmark much like the Café Tortoni and Confitería La Ideal.

My experience with Sara and Ignacio was truly positive. They are a gentle, thoughtful and like to enjoy good food and good chat.
The house is amazing! Very beautiful and organized. The decoration is something to see, blending old and contemporary styles. If you are into design, you will gonna love it.
What I liked most about staying with them was the possibility of meeting people from Colombia, France and Germany. All the other guests were very respectful and polite, and I didn't have any problem sharing a room. The neighborhood is quiet, and the house is really close to the subway (line H) and bus stations. Was a nice experience and I totally recommend it.
Mi experiencia con Sara e Ignacio fue realmente positiva. Son una pareja gentil, atenta y les gusta disfrutar de una buena comida y una buena charla.
La casa es increíble! Muy bonita y organizada. La decoración es muy rica, mezcla estilos antiguos y contemporáneos. Si a ti le gusta diseño, se le va a encantar.
Lo que más me gustó en estar con ellos fue la posibilidad de conocer gente de Colombia, Francia y Alemania. Todos los demás huéspedes eran muy respetuosos y educados, y no tuve ningún problema en compartir una habitación. El barrio es tranquilo, y la casa está muy cerca del metro (línea H) y estaciones de autobuses. Fue una experiencia agradable y lo recomiendo totalmente.
Great stay at the house! Close walk to yellow subway line, not in traditional tourist areas.
keep in mind there is no A/C. there are a few other rooms in the house that Ignacio also rents out, so the overall feel was partway between hostel and bed/breakfast.
We stayed in the room with a private bath, double bed, and walk-in closet. The room itself is enormous and gorgeous - as is the bathroom. It felt like we had our own little apartment with a shared kitchen down the hall. The bedroom opens to a shared patio through french doors which was rarely used during our stay. The other guests in the 3 rooms along the hall were lovely as were Ignacio and Sara (spelling?), always attentive and ready with answers to whatever absurd question we were able to come up with next :) The spaces, shared included, were all well kempt. Laundry service (~5 blocks), grocery store (~5blocks), subway stop (~7 blocks), and gym (~10 blocks) are all walking distance. The only part we initially had trouble with at first - I don't think there is air conditioning so we kept the patio doors opened for air flow and the mosquito's love nibbling BUT once we got something to plug into the wall that repels mosquito's we slept like babies. A little off the tourist track and good for long term stays and authentic neighborhood experiences. RECOMMENDED!

About the Host, Ignacio Y Sara
We're a swedish-argentine couple enjoying life together in Buenos Aires, sharing a part of it with people from all around the world. Sara is a literature student born and raised in Northern Sweden and Ignacio is the head coach of a Crossfit box and born in the city of BA.
We both enjoy physical activities and running, going to the gym and tango dancing is all part of our everyday life. We also enjoy cooking and eating good food, preferably with friends and family. You can find us in the kitchen at any time and we're more than happy to try new things. Experiencing new things is also our main reason for travelling, both together and separately. We have covered big parts of Europe, Asia and South America, hoping to see a lot more soon.
If you have any question or you want to know more about us, please don't hesitate to send us a message.
