The Neighborhood

It is a quiet and cozy apartment in the heart of Palermo Soho a small area of Palermo Viejo around Plaza Serrano (officially Plazoleta Cortázar) .
It is a newly fashionable area for fashion, design, restaurants, bars, tango and street culture. The atmosphere in many cafés and restaurants strives to be "alternative", which makes this area of the city especially popular with young, upper-middle class Argentines as well as foreign tourists. The traditional low houses have been adapted into boutiques and bars, creating a bohemian feel. The square has a crafts fair on weekends

I posted some pictures of the street and the neighborhood, which I hope you will love to discover.

The apartment is close to Plaza Italia, the Zoo, the Botanical Gardens and the Rural Society, the main exhibition center of the city, and near the Palermo Parks, for picnics, running or biking.

It is close to all the attractions of Palermo Viejo, bars, restaurants, design shops, tango and with very good public transport. Six blocks from the metro (Subte) and bus lines that go to different parts of the city.
There are several markets (Disco, Carrefour, Coto, Cordial) and good places to eat, get ice cream or a drink. If your program is tango, La Viruta, the most famous and popular milonga in Buenos Aires, or Salón Canning, with its sophisticated wood flooring and elegant dancers or Villa Malcom, The Milonguita, Dinzel study, etc.
Buenos Aires is a flat city ideal for walks and biking. The Bicicleta naranja is a bicycle rental nearby the apartment in Nicaragua and Borges Street.

  • Eduardo was a great host. I sent a last minute accommodation request and he responded quickly. He was easy to communicate with and gave us some great food recommendations. His place is located in the heart of Palermo. We walked to all of the greatest cafés and best restaurants. The subway is a close walk too. If you have the chance to stay here take it.

  • What a great apartment in a perfect location! The four of us were very comfortable in the apartment, which had everything we needed. Eduardo did a wonderful job explaining how to get around and all that the area has to offer. Palermo Soho has great restaurants, shops and entertainment and we really did "feel at home in Palermo Soho."

  • It sure did feel like home in Palermo Soho, the apartment was absolutely perfect for our stay in Buenos Aries. With charm and character, it was clean and well equipped with comfortable beds in a fantastic neighborhood. We could walk or take the bus, to all the fabulous areas that we wanted to explore. Eduardo was at the Apartment to meet us when we arrived and gave us heaps of helpful info on his beautiful city, and even offered to walk us around to show the neighborhood. You could not ask for better hosts or a better air bnb apartment !

Hi, I´m Eduardo, "porteño" born in Buenos Aires and architect. Gisele, my wife is Brazilian and journalist. We love Buenos Aires and Rio-, and we try to be in both cities all the times we can. We live in Monserrat, near San Telmo. We love to dance tango, reading, listening to his music and walk in this city, or bike, because B A is lovely flat. We like the architecture, the history, the tango and the music of this city. We hope that the apartment taht we rent in Palermo Viejo (now called Soho by the estate) help many people to know Buenos Aires, its people and all the intangibles of this city: the magic of listening to tango, the fascination for the dance, the charm of its streets or parks, delicious bookstores, eclectic architecture of Avenida de Mayo and San Telmo, or the multitude of cafes and small bars, national passion ... Gisele is also the representative in Buenos Aires of the RentALocalFriend network. She knows the B side of Buenos Aires, and is very good dancer of tango (in a couple of years, also a teacher).If you want to know the city "renting" a local friend, you can look for her refeences in trip advisor or even (website hidden).
