Good communication from Maria prior to arrival for our two week stay. Easy check in with limited English (but not as limited as our Spanish!) but was patient giving explanations about the apartment and area. Assisted us with changing money.
The apartment was VERY well equipped with a food hamper, kitchen and bar supplies and toiletries/towels. Apartment exactly as shown in the pictures (note that the last picture in the apartment description is of the Puerto Madero which is about 2km from the apartment, however), and was ‘compact’, as expected. Good wifi. Secure building with 24hr security front desk.
Location of the apartment is central (on Tucuman, about 100m from Florida – opposite Hotel Claridge), relatively close to Lavalle metro, walking distance to Plaza Major, the port and the Theatre with bus routes out the front. Despite being in the city (area can be quiet at nigth), there are good restaurants ten minutes’ walk away (El Federal, El Establo – also near the galeria shopping centre). It is about 30 minutes’ walk to San Telmo and about 30 minutes’ metro to Palermo (or 15minute, 8-10USD taxi). The area around the apartment, while it might look a little shabby, felt safe at any time of day.
We didn’t sleep that well in the apartment for a couple of reasons. We didn’t find the bed (two singles pushed together) very comfortable, and had both experienced some back trouble. Also, the apartment is noisy with a high volume of traffic passing by (only two stories below) well into the night and hitting a loose grate in the road which caused a very loud clanging to echo through the street every time a car/bus passed (hopefully this is fixed...soon?). The windows are single glazed and you hear everything from the street. The aircon (which was pretty loud) helped drown out the noise somewhat, and was needed for most of our stay anyway as the apartment did get hot.
Apartment was cleaned half-way through our two week stay. Late check out was very much appreciated.
Very good value for Buenos Aires.
There are other, prettier, greener and more expensive (!) places to stay in BA, but would recommend this apartment for those wanting to stay in the centre on a budget.
Maria Esther es la mejor anfitriona, al llegar nos recibio con una canasta llena de alfajores y galletitas que nos quedo perfecto, ya que mis hijas estaban hambrientas, despues del vuelo, ademas nos ha dejado agua, refresco y todo lo necesario para sentirnos como en casa, definitivamente regresaria y me quedaria ahi, ademas de que la zona es muy centrica, y nos ayudo a tener todo cerca.
Nossa estadia no apto da Esther foi rápida e por isso mesmo não poderia ter sido melhor..no centro perto de tudo.. Fácil acesso.. Para compras um paraíso , 2 min da calle Florida. Um espaço pequeno, prático, funcional e aconchegante.. A Esther é ótima, recebe bem explica tudo, super simpática e te deixa a vontade, tipo divirta se e sem frescuras. Ela pensou em tudo, sem falar na cestinha de guloseimas que ela te deixa de presente. Recomendo? Super!!!!!
Maria was an excellent host. She was waiting for us at the door with a big smile and a hug. Her apartment was perfect for the two of us -- extremely clean and comfortable --and Maria took the time to make sure that anything we could have possibly needed was in the apartment, from toiletries to coffee's, teas, milk and snacks, to argentina travel guides, phone numbers for taxi's, card for the Subte. The building was in a safe location -- (weekends can be very quiet) -- but within walking distance to most everything -- Florida st was just around the corner. san Telmo, city center and Puerto madero 10-15 min walk away. Maria was even considerate enough to help us change US dollars at a good rate and make recommendations on restaurants/ cafes/ attractions. We would not hesitate to stay with Maria again when we are back in Buenos Aires!
Esta é a segunda vez que alugamos o apartamento de Maria Esther e mais uma vez estava tudo perfeito! Com certeza quando voltarmos a Buenos Aires nos hospedaremos lá!
