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 stayed here for 3 weeks and loved it. The house is located in a quiet, non touristy part of the city. Easy to walk or catch public transport to other parts of the city. Lots of options for local restaurants. The house itself is a beautiful old building with a decent kitchen and patio. Ignacio is a very charming, helpful guy.
I would highly recommend staying here!
Great place to stay in Buenos Aires. Ignacio tiene una bonita casa bien situada con espacios comunes amplios y cuidados como el patio,la cocina o el living donde poder descansar tras una larga jornada de turismo urbano. Su conocimiento de la ciudad nos fue de gran ayuda para disfrutar de la vida porteña durante los diez días que estuvimos en su casa, gracias a él conocimos lugares increíbles, vida nocturna y espectáculos, así como la mejor manera de llegar a cualquier parte. Además nos dio muchos consejos sobre nuestro viaje por el resto del país. No dudaría en volver a casa de Ignacio si volviera a Buenos Aires.
Ignacio and his guest house are great from all point of views. While Ignacio is friendly and attentive - but not overwhelming -, his house is beautiful and we'll located, in a very "Porteño" style neighborhood quite in the middle of.every touristic parts of the city. The rooms have nice patios in front and the kitchen is clean.and handy. The rest is as on the pictures.
We want to thank Ignacio again for the great time we had. Definitely our "(website hidden) Buenos Aires".
Ignacio was a really warm host to us during our stay and went out of his way to make us comfortable and feel at home. The place is amazing with light patio's, good kitchen and a good livingroom. The neighbourhood felt quiet, yet close to everything and well reachable with public transport. Would definitely stay there again.
Ignacio y su hermano Nicolas nos recibieron como sus amigos y fueron muy disponible por todo. Fue una muy buena semana en Mi Casa en BA. La casa es muy bonita, tranquila y a proximidad de todas las comodidades. Es ideal para visitar Buenos Aires!
Mi companero y yo estuvimos 15 dias en "Mi Casa en Ba". Ignacio y su hermano Nicolas fueron súper disponibles desde el momento en que llegamos, siempre dispuestos a echar una mano y aconsejarnos. La casa es linda y la habitacion era como nosotros esperabamos. La ubicacion es bastante comoda y bien comunicada por el transporte publico.
Nosotros la recomendamos a todos!!
This place is an oasis in Buenos Aires. We simply loved it there! The good Italian food around the corner is just another plus :)
Ignacio himself was also extremely welcoming and helpful, gave us some great tips, which we badly needed in this huge and lively city.
So...without thinking twice: five stars!

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.
