About this listing
Room with private bathroom, nice atmosphere and independence, in a theater and restaurants district/neighbourhood. Very well located and connected with lots of buses 30mts across the street, subway 2 blocks away.
This is my home, where I open a room for travelers. It is a large house (1st floor apartment) recently redone, very comfortable in an old building in Almagro neighbourhood.
There is a room upstairs for 1 or 2 (double or single bed) with prived bathroom and air conditioning. It is furnished with shelves in the bathroom and placard to keep your stuff.
Downstairs there is also a 4x4m studio room where I work, and you can do as well, as there are two huge desks to study, work, flip, or whatever.
The kitchen and laundry, very spacious and usefull, with a window-wall and the door to balcony (entrance).
Also there is the violet toilet in this level, for everyone to use.
There is also a large 8x4mts space where I have my own space, room and bathroom. So this part is closed when I sleep or need my space.
It is silently located at Corrientes Av (but not facing the street), that is the main theater and obelisco street, in the neighbourhood of Almagro.
It's 15 minutes away from the city "microcentro" (subway 2.5 blocks away), 10 min from Palermo area, an super well connected by busses, subway and bike paths.
The apartment has been recently redone by me, spaces redisigned. There is wifi internet 3mb, a desktop computer that can be used when I don't (I usually work with it, but can lend you an ipad to check e mails if you need), hair drier, microwave, washer, a great kitchen, aircon in the livingroom.
I provide towels, sheets, shampoo, soap, etc...
It is very comfortable, aprox 80mts2, Quite a lot of sunlight all year all day and very well located. Beautifull It's a small building (only 2 floors) and it has a huge roof top to use. Balcony with growing garden and small orchad with compost composer.
There is a person of trust that comes to help cleaning once a week.
Really close to: cinemas, art circuit, many many theaters (huges and smalls), bookshops, shopping abasto, supermarket, Ciudad Cultural Konex, Almagro square food fair, etc etc
I work on theatre lighting and photography so there is also a dark room to use.
For PHOTOGRAPHERS: I have a dark room with 2 amplifiers (6x9 or 35mm negatives) and fully equiped. (tell me before just in case, since i'm not using it now)
Guests have access to free wifi internet, kitchen, washing (I rather set the machine when you ask), private bathroom, air-con, studio area, balcony hammoc, maps and magazines about BsAs, and bla bla bla.
Interaction with Guests
It depends on my schedule in life, but I generally tend to be friendly and wellcoming. I like guests that keep their own schedule and have an independent mind, free to investigate the city life.
With some, I had some Asado with friends, with others breakfast chats, even one joined me on a demonstration, who knows! Free flow, if it flows.
Almagro, the theater district of Buenos Aires, has a lot to investigate. Tango places, Bars, Restaurants, Shopping Abasto, Konex Cultural Center, "La Catedral del Tango", art galleries, studios, and much more.
It is located strategically to get everywhere easily by bus, subway, taxi or bike. It is safe to come and go all day, and there are plenty of shops and supermarkets all arround, still keeping the "neighbour" feeling.
Lots of buses, "Medrano" Subway station line B, bike line, taxis, etc...
House rules... house rules... love it as i do, enjoy it, live along.
Take care of the house, you can invite people if you want, no problem.
The washing machine can be used but I set it on, so you can let me know when you want to use it and I will set it for you.
I have a compost container that you can use as well for organic recycling, and I separate garbage and recyclings in two cans, but that is no rule if you can throw your garbage as you wish :)
I guess that is it with the house rules.
Nadia nicely took us in on short notice and was helpful in getting us settled, oriented, and on our way when the time came (she generously called a taxi for us super early in the morning) - we appreciated her help as a host. The room is small and no frills, so don't expect much from the space; it's not a listing that you'll want to really hang out in. I should mention that it wasn't especially clean, as she had a guest leave the same morning of our arrival. The shower is messy and requires some floor mopping afterwards. Be aware too that she has a super sweet, playful cat (who we loved), but this is probably going to be an issue if you're allergic as he liked to play around with us in the bedroom. The location was definitely more full of locals - there's a really cool bar nearby - but not especially attractive if you're only staying for a short while (other locations like Palermo and San Telmo are probably more enticing for those staying a short while). A fine place in our experience - Nadia is a kind host.
Nadia was a great host. The apartment was located very conveniently next to the Subte in the Almagro neighborhood, and transportation to everything was very easy. Nadia provided bus cards for us to use and was super helpful with anything we needed. She even shared her mate with us and showed us the ropes for drinking it.
The only drawback to the apartment was the shower, which leaked onto the floor of the bathroom each use.
Todo muy bien con esta casa, Nadia es una persona muy hospitalaria y logra hacerte sentir cómodo en tu estadía. El lugar era amable, limpio, acogedor, ubicado en una zona bastante céntrica. La presencia de Fernando, el hermoso gato negro que vive ahí, ayuda aún más a que todo sea mejor. Completamente recomendable.
We stayed 2 and a half weeks at Nadia's and enjoyed her hospitality and the use of her apartment greatly. The apartment is bright and the kitchen good for cooking. The bedroom is small but the bed is comfortable and the use of a private bathroom a wonderful bonus.
We especially enjoyed Nadia's cat. He is playful and cuddly and we enjoyed having him join us as we relaxed.
We would definitely stay with Nadia again the next time we visit Buenos Aires!
Nadia is a great host! She's knowledgable, friendly and speaks English well. The apartment is very comfortable and in a good neighbourhood. I would definitely book with her again. Highly recommended. Thanks for everything Nadia!
Todo genial, desde la comodidad de la cama, hasta la disponibilidad de transportes en la zona. Pasamos lindo de principio a fin!
Great place! Awesome location in a bohemian area close to all the best parts of the city. A real unique apartment with an open feel. I'm best friends with Fernandez the cat now as well
