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!
I lived in this flat 2 months in 2013. I never met Rogelio personally, but Walter, who is living there all the time is a very friendly and open minded person. We had a very good time together. The guestroom is not so big, but there is everything you need, and the flat is very beautiful and clean overall. Especially a wonderful view from the roof top is worth to come here. I highly recommend this place.
Mi estadia en la casa de Rogelio fue fantastica, me recibió Walter, me ha dejado super a gusto y me senti con en mi propia casa, el depto está siempre muy ordenado y limpio, su ubicación es perfecta, saludos y muchas gracias por todo!
I had a wonderful time at Rogelio's place. I ended up having the apartment to myself most of the time I was there save the last week or so when I shared it with Walter, who is normally there as I understand. He was a great person to share the flat with and was very helpful and knowledgable about Buenos Aires.
It's located near easily accessible public transportation that can get you to other parts of Buenos Aires easily and cheaply.
Would happily visit again!
I would definitely recommend this room to any solo traveler visiting Buenos Aires who needs a little privacy. It's in a decent part of town, the room is spacious and Rogelio and Walter were very accomodating.
Rogelio was very flexible with my timing. Walter was an easy going (and mainly absent) flatmate. My only complain was the lack of air-conditioning, which in the summer can make sleeping a bit tougher.
I had a wonderful time in this apartment! The view is beautiful and the covered patio gives it a great indoor-outdoor feel, perfect for spring. Walter is very friendly and was able to accommodate me at the last minute.
