Neighbourhood Highlights:

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, with plans to offer live tango and become a tourist landmark much like the Tortoni and Ideal cafés.

I hope you like the place. Don't forget to check up the photos of the house.

See you soon.

  • We would definitely recommend staying at Ignacio and Sara's home. The house is really well placed close to the subte lines and main bus routes. There are supermarkets, panaderias, bars and restaurants close by.
    The house is a beautiful old building, stylishly renovated with open courtyards high windows with lots of light. It has big areas for everyone staying to socialise. Our room was quiet, big with its own bathroom.
    Ignacio and Sara were away when we arrived but their family were on hand and helped us settle in and made us feel very welcome. We had a great stay and would stay again when in BsAs.

  • Couldn't imagine Buenos Aires any other way! Ignacio is the perfect host, extremely friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the city speaks perfect English and is willing to help you out with anything you may need during your stay. The communal aspect is also a huge part of MiCasa you have great people staying too so it's quite easy to entertain yourself on the patio or around the table whilst still keeping that quite and homely feel. Everything is as pictured and kept very clean, the internet is great which is quite rare for BsAs and my room was fitted with air conditioning which helped during those hot days! Overall I wouldn't stay anywhere else it's a rare gem a beautiful home, perfect host and an awesome homely atmosphere whether you're here for a week or 6 months this is the place too stay. Hope to be back here at some point in the future.

  • I very much enjoyed my stay with Ignacio at MiCasa! When I arrived (which was quite early in the morning around 5:30am), Ignacio was there to greet me and immediately made me feel welcome in his beautiful flat.

    The flat, as advertised, is located in a beautiful and well-kept neighborhood, central to downtown and the surrounding areas of Buenos Aires. Ignacio, a very proud and engaging Porteño, was happy to provide all of his guests with tons of information regarding his beutuful city, when asked :) I enjoyed our talks about his experiences living in Buenos Aires, as well as the advice about how to navigate and enjoy the amazing things the city has to offer.

    I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Baires, whether for a few days or a few months, to check out MiCasa! Great living conditions and a gracious host- what more could you ask for?

  • I really enjoyed my stay at COLONIAL HOUSE!
    The historical living quarters and quiet atmosphere is just what I was looking for. The house is spacious with high ceilings’ and beautiful wooden decor. The stucco walls and skeleton key door panels truly provide a sense of the colonial times that this house is named for. It's clean, cozy, and serene. There are two patios that provide for quiet, reading, or just relaxation in the sun. There is also a living room area in which during my stay here, provided for some delicious home cooked meals around the dinner table with wonderful guests alike; as well as a place to catch up on your television if need be.
    The atmosphere of Colonial House provides for a friendly, sincere, family-like comfort that would make anyone feel right at home. All thanks to the Amazing host of this property!
    Ignacio is extremely personable and an exceptional host. He is generous and extremely helpful; able to answer any questions about how to get around the city, where to dine, where to dance -all in accordance with your own personal taste.
    There is quite an abundance of supermarkets, produce shops, Laundromats, cafes and eateries throughout the neighborhood, as well as many bus lines and train stations to take you where ever you may need to go. Public transportation here is safe and fast. I made some great friends during my stay at Colonial House. The neighborhood is safe, the price is right, the house is superb! If you are looking to stay in a house that feels like home, this is the place for you!

  • Overall, this house was a instant success. Ignacio greeted me into and showed me around the massive colonial house. On top of that, I asked to borrow a backpack within minutes. He gladly lent me one, no questions asked. His generosity and open mind to show me around the city was really great. The whole house, including all of the great roommates always had a warm feel to it. Some nights we would all cook and just hangout.

    Overall, I highly recommend staying at this house. If the incredible house doesn't sell you at first glance, the people will.

  • Lo pase super bien en la casa de Ignacio con el y los demas que estuvieron alli. Es una casa linda y Ignacio es muy atentivo como dueño. Me gusto el barrio porque no es turistico: La casa esta muy cerca de los colectivos y son 15 min a pie al Subte. Me parece que Ignacio es un ¨businessman.¨ ;-)

    I had a great time at Ignacio´s house. Ignacio is a very attentive host and the other people in the house were lovely too. The house is beautiful and I could tell that he cares a lot about his place. He is a businessman. ;-) I liked the neighbourhood because it is not touristy and it´s close enough to the Subte (about 15 min walk), and the local buses are just around the corner. Also, plenty of cafes, shops etc. on the main street, just 5 min walk away.

  • I felt at home in no time! The area is nice and calm, close to anything you may need (laundry, the subte, food store etc.). As for the house it's spacious with high ceilings and good common areas to hang out with the other guests (I met some amazing people during my stay!). The house is perfect as a starting point for discovering Buenos Aires and Ignacio is a wonderful host, always there to help you out, answering questions about the city or give you tips on where to go. If you're going to Buenos Aires I can't think of a better place to stay.

    Jag kände mig som hemma på nolltid! Området är lugnt och det är nära till allt du kan tänkas behöva, kemtvätt, tunnelbana, mataffärer etc. Huset är stort och har fina utrymmen som passar perfekt för att hänga med de andra gästerna eller bara ta det lugnt efter en lång dag ute på stan. När det gäller att upptäcka Buenos Aires är huset en superbra utgångspunkt. Ignacio är en underbar person och finns alltid till hands för att besvara frågor eller ge dig tips och idéer. Har du planer på att besöka BA kan jag inte göra annat än att rekommendera det här stället!

  • One of the warmest welcomes I have ever received - within an hour of my arrival at Mi Casa En BA I was being served risotto and salad made by my new housemates. The house itself is gorgeous, with lots of space and two lovely courtyards. Ignacio, the host, is incredibly helpful and friendly. He left vegetarian restaurant pamphlets on my pillow one day after finding out I don't eat meat! I can't recommend this house highly enough.
