About this listing

Bohemian, soulful, loved. The Loft is our most romantic apartment. It's an intimate space with a cozy upstairs bedroom. Soft light and vibrant colors mixed with antiques from our neighborhood remind you that you are on vacation in Buenos Aires.

The Space

The Loft is on the second floor of a fabulous turn-of-the-century building. For the design, we started with the sofa, which we found in a thrift shop and had reupholstered. From there, we used the colors of the sofa and our neighborhood San Telmo as inspiration.

It's perfect for a couple, but it can sleep three with one person sleeping on the downstairs futon. If you are three people, keep in mind that the mattress on the futon is hard. I love it, but it's not for everyone.

This building is what they call chorizo-style (sausage) because they are long and narrow. Back in the day, the entire floor would have been one apartment for one family. There was even a bakery on the ground floor. In the 80s, a developer made the rooms into individual apartments. There are five per floor (three floors in our building).

We don't think this is the right place for people with small children because the loft space upstairs has a metal grate that opens up onto the living room and there isn't a railing or wall there. Have a look at the pictures of the bedroom as it looks out over the yellow and red wall to see what I mean.

Interaction with Guests

Angela is splitting her time between New Orleans and Buenos Aires so if she is not there, so you'll be greeted by Grisel or Andrew. We're all available for you and happy to help. You'll have our email addresses and phone numbers.

The Neighborhood

We're just 2 blocks from Plaza Dorrego, the heart of San Telmo and 2 blocks away from Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires' most modern neighborhood. It's a fantastic location.

We love San Telmo's bohemian vibe and authenticity. Though gentrification is definitely happening, it's not pretentious... yet.

You'll want to explore San Telmo's casas de tango, small traditional restaurants known as bodegones, old-fashioned bars called Nares notables, antique and vintage shops, and the trendy new restaurants, cafes, and fancy boutiques. Day or night, San Telmo is full of activity.

In particular, we love that it's small. No matter where you are in San Telmo, you'll find a cool place to eat, great bars and cafes, some lovely boutiques (though fewer than in Palermo or Recoleta) and you will mostly hear Spanish.

Getting Around

We provide you with a SUBE card that you can top off in the kiosk below us. The card can be used on buses and the subway. We also have a local guide to the bus system which we'll teach you to use when you check-in. Buses are great in BA.

Below us, on Paseo Colon, there are several useful bus lines with stops right on our block. You can get to most parts of the city from a bus right outside of the door.

The closest subway stop is 8 blocks away, but we tend to walk 15 minutes to Plaza de Mayo where you can catch the green line and then change to any other one stop from there.

Also, on Paseo Colon, you'll pretty much always find a taxi and they're quite cheap in BA. Just make sure you take one that is either Radio Taxi or Taxi Premium.

Other Things to Note

Regular check-in times are between 2pm and 8pm.
We cannot accept check-ins after 11pm.

If you are arriving between 8pm and 11pm or on a Sunday, our greeter will charge $15 US. Please write to me before you book so I can be sure she can be there.

We provide you with a pre-paid cellular phone that you can top off at the kiosk below us. There are speakers you can plug into a device because no one should have to spend their vacation without music.

We have universal adaptors, a hair dryer, a bunch of DVDs for the nights you want to chill, and our kitchen is equipped for cooking your own meals.

The upstairs loft section is a metal grate that opens up to the living room below. If you suffer from vertigo, you may not feel comfortable in this apartment.
