Interaction with Guests
I work, so, most of the time, from Monday to Friday I am out of the apartment, and I arrive rather late. On weekends I stay at home or go out for the day, part of it or the whole weekend.
There is a park just one block away. There are some supermarkets really near and other little groceries, and also a gas station and a pharmacy both 24h open. Just about 6 blocks you have the Abasto Shopping (mall). You have the Alto Palermo Shopping just two subway stations (line D) away, or about 15 minutes of walk.

The "Hospital de Clínicas" (public health), associated with the faculty of medicin is also very near. Universidad de Palermo has one of its buildings just about 50 meters in the same block. Two blocks away there is a residence for foreign students.

Rogelio was a very kind and welcoming host. He works long hours, so most of the time, I had the apartment to myself. His apartment is in a very central location in Buenos Aires and conveniently located next to several bus lines and supermarkets. Having fast Wi-Fi, cable TV, and my own bathroom made my stay more enjoyable. The only thing I wish I had was a larger bed, but the room is a good size. I would recommend Rogelio's apartment for people who are planning to visit Buenos Aires on a budget.
Lovely apartment in a wonderful location. Rogelio is really friendly and communicated everything very well, would definitely stay again!
Cosy eclectic latin-american style apartment, nice host, comfortable neighbourghood. And a great city! Definitely recommend.
Thank you Rogelio for being my host, City guide, spanish teacher and friend in Buenos Aires! I wish I can return one day and would appreciate to find "my room" being offered that day:-) It's been my pleasure to contribute some german-style engineering to some renovation measures and I'm sure that future guests will appreciate the freshly applied sun protection, enjoy the latin-american-style decoration and all the other Features of this flat, that will surely keep experiencing lots of sophistication and commitment of its owner.
Rogelio meanwhile moved back into his flat, is a very well organized, attentive and funny flatmate and did everything to make my stay comfortable. I will stay for another month:-)
I absolutely loved staying at Rogelio's place for another 6 weeks. I stayed here for a total of 3 months. The permanent tenant, Walter is a nice and quiet guy. I also had the pleasure of meeting Rogelio one, and he is such a gentleman. Neighbors in the building are very nice, as well. I would recommend this place.
I stayed at Rogelio's place for 6 weeks and the apartment is really quite charming. Rogelio is great with fast communication. The other tenant Walter is generally pleasant and not around too often. We did have a minor communication issue but overall I enjoyed my stay and time in Buenos Aires that I decided to keep the apartment for another 6 weeks!
