About This Listing
Super comfortable 3 bed + 2 bath apartment. Lots of light, big living area, AC in every room!
Located in one of the most up and coming areas in the city. Ride safely on the bike lane passing through the front door to trendy restaurants and shops
Palermo is a great neighborhood, but it's big. My home is at the edge of the best part of Palermo. It's very safe (I lived there for 10 years) and everything is within walking distance.
The huge Jumbo supermarket is a 5 minute walk away. This is a great place to buy groceries if you want to keep costs down or prepare a special meal. For everyday needs, a corner store is even closer. A subway stop and multiple bus stops are a 5 minute walk away as well. If taxis are more your style, you can hail them from just down the street. When you rent the apartment, I'll provide you with all the local details.
My past tenants loved staying here. It's on a peaceful, cobblestone street that feels authentically Argentinian. Yet there's plenty of action a short walk away, like Plaza Serrano and all kinds of restaurants and stores (including an Italian restaurant across the street). Want to do something touristy? Prefer to relax? Itching to shop? You can make this decision each morning when you wake up.
The apartment is at the top of a six-story building and there are no other apartments on that floor, although there's a very small apartment that is half a floor up. The elevator, with an old-fashioned door that you pull to close, brings you straight to your door.
A family, two couples, or three friends can stay here very comfortably. The two main bedrooms are at opposite corners of the apartment, each with their own full bathrooms. The third bedroom has a single bed with a desk, and can be used as a den if you need it. There's plenty of closet space in every bedroom, a clothes washer, and drying racks that you can use on the balcony.
My maid is amazing and has been helping me for 4 years. She'll come each week to clean the apartment (and of course before you arrive as well) at no extra cost.
Buenos Aires gets hot! There are 4 air conditioning units: one in the living area and one in each bedroom. For the winter months, there is ample heating as well. You also get high-speed wifi internet access, cable, and a telephone for local calls.
Interaction with Guests
I live in Canada but my family is in Buenos Aires. I am the main contact through email but I will always give you the cell phone number of a person to call in case of emergency.
The apartment is in the border between Palermo and Villa Crespo. Both neighbourhoods are known for their restaurants and shops. Villa Crespo keeps a more traditional Buenos Aires look while offering a great mix of traditional and modern food and design. Palermo has become the most modern neighborhood in the city, with international-looking cafés, restaurants, clothing stores and bookstores.
You can experience both neighborhoods in leisurely walks near the apartment.
Very close to several bus lines and subway
The apartment building is small and everyone knows each other. We have very friendly neighbours and we hope to have friendly guests as well.
Like in any apartment building, everyone is expected to be considerate with regards to noise, especially after 10 pm.
Most elevators in Buenos Aires have doors that open and close manually. People from other countries sometimes forget to close them when they get off. Please, make sure you close BOTH elevator doors when you leave, if not, neighbours will have to take the stairs. Thanks!
we were 5 people who came to BsAs to dance tango, and it was not our first time to go there, so we knew that the flat is located just in perfect area for us!:) the flat's place was excellent for all of us, from one side everybody has its own space from another side we were together:) the kitchen stuff is good, everything is enough, Internet speed is perfect, balcony view is wonderful (my key point of flats selection in BsAs), the street is guiet, supermercado is just 5 minutes from the flat, metro is nearby, flat cleaning is once per week, enough linen and towels, Virginia (a representative of Paz in BsAs) was very kind to us, English speaking (!!!), always ready to help! Best choice for us!!!!!
Todo en orden , acogedor y muy buena ubicación. rápidos tiempos de respuesta.
We were a little disappointed when we entered the apartment. Other than it looked like emptier than on the photos, it was rather dirty and the bed linen didn’t seem to be washed… However, equipment was very helpful, especially the air conditioning in each room that make our nights very relaxing!
The place is quite well located but it’s not that close to Palermo Soho. The neighborhood is more like Villa Crespo than Palermo. However, nearby there are a very handy supermarket and some good restaurants for the evenings you are too tired to go out!
Whatever the inconveniences, I can only recommend this place which has an affordable price for all you need for a successful stay in Buenos Aires! Thanks Paz and happy New Year!
The apartment was really good for the price, but I wouldn't say it was the nicest place. Few things weren't working ie. Aircon, lights, roof leak and the hot water went out for a few days. Paz and Virginia were on top of things though and willing to help. The neighbours were a real issue, mainly with noise and we were greeted with a woman screaming at us in Spanish about closing the lift door. Other than that, good location, only a few blocks from palermo soho but definitely not right in the action.
Great place, good location, reasonably priced....strongly recommend !
Muy bueno, cumple las expectativas. No hubo ningún problema, la ubicacion es muy buena, recomendable.
Paz and her contact in Buenos Aires were very fast to respond to any questions and issues. The apartment was generally as described and as shown in the pictures, very spacious and lot's of natural light. The location is really fantastic, quiet but just a few streets from lot's of shops and restaurants. The beds are very comfortable and warm (we were there during winter). The only thing I think should really be improved is the kitchen equipment, there are few pots and pans and they were in very bad condition, which was annoying as to make just a few basic meals we had to buy pans.
About the Host, Paz
My name is Paz and I'm from Argentina. I currently live in Vancouver, Canada where I'm studying Sociology. I have previously studied English/Spanish Translation and I also went to film school.
I love traveling! I lived for several months in the US, a year in Spain and I've been in Canada for over 3 years now so I know what it feels like to look for a place to stay in a foreign city... I hope I can help other people with that process in my home town!
