Colonial house, wine cellar, pool!!

House - Entire home/apt · Humberto Primo, Buenos Aires, Capital Federal C1068AAH, Argentina

The Space

This colonial house is located only 2 blocks from Plaza Dorrego. It was built in 1887 in the “chorizo” style, meaning that the varios rooms are connected by a long patio, and has been completely renovated in a way that has preserved the original structure and craftsmanship. Inside, one finds a nice mix of antique and modern furniture. The living room looks out into the patio. The dining room has a table that can seat 10, complete sets of silverware and tablecloths. The kitchen is connected to the dining room. Beneath the ground floor, one finds a lovely wine cellar stocked with the finest Argentine wines. There are 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, a complete bathroom, and a huge window that looks out onto the garden and pool. The second bedroom has a queen bed and connects to a bathroom with a shower. Outside, the garden, pool and solarium (shared with 3 other units on the property) help to create an oasis in the busy city. In addition to the pool and garden there is a BBQ grill, a picnic table, comfortable chairs and stools under a canape, a shower, a bar with appliances for mixing. Maid and babysitting services are available for a fee upon request.
You have to know that San Telmo is the oldest neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It is a well-preserved area and is characterized by its colonial buildings. Cafes, tango parlors and antique shops line the cobblestone streets, which are often filled with artists and dancers.
San Telmo's attractions include old churches (e.g. San Pedro Telmo), museums, antique stores and a semi-permanent antique fair (Feria de Antigüedades) in the main public square, Plaza Dorrego. Tango-related activities for both locals and tourists are in the area.
The apartment is very close to several public transportation and within a walking distance to many to many touristic attractions like Casa Rosada, Avenida de Mayo, Puerto Madero or the nearby parks!
It is really very safe: a walk alone during the nights returning from Milongas where I dance tango.
Rent an old colonial house and immerse yourself into a real Buenos Aires Experience!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Mercedes and her staff are great hosts that we really recommand to everyone. They are reactive for everything we need. For instance , they have book taxis for us, suggested places to go for tango, etc...

    The appartment is really well located in San Telmo. It is close to public transportation but you can also walk from there to many areas of the city center, if you like it as we do.

    We recommand Mercedes appartment and hosting,

    Thank you again!

  • We spent a very nice time in this house. Mercedes and the team of Casa San Telmo was very kind and helpfull. We had some problems in the toilets and bathrooms, but everything was fixed as soon as possible. We surely come again.

    February 2014
  • Fantastic experience. Mercedes was very helpful and welcoming and we enjoyed the apartment very much. The location is excellent if you want to be in San Telmo which we loved. Internet service was good as well. Very good experience.

    January 2014
  • Beautiful place with lots of character, in the heart of San Telmo. Everything as described.

    November 2013
  • A secure, central place to stay in Buenos Aires, walking distance to restaurants, museums, CBD and La Boca (about 40 minutes). We stayed twice. The house is very exotic and quirky and so pleasantly different from staying in a hotel. Our reception from Mercedes' colleagues was warm and friendly (although we never got to meet Mercedes herself).

  • This was an entirely charming apartment, every bit as gorgeous as the photos.
    Mercedes is a lovely host.

    September 2013
  • The house has a lot of character and it was perfect for 4 people. The location is great, right in the middle of San Telmo. The communication with the host and personnel was quite fluid and they were helpful (especially the lady who welcomed us). There were a few small problems, when we arrived we had only 2 bath towels (and we were 4) and the office to get another 2 towels was closed until the next day. Also there were no matches to light the stove or heaters (and it was quite cold), no dish-washing liquid and no toilet paper in the upstairs bathroom, which would have been nice to have readily available instead of having to buy them late at night. Other than that, our experience was good.

    September 2013
  • This lift was fabulous! Quirky, cool place to stay in a great location in the heart of San Telmo. All the basics were dealt with seamlessly including communication with Mercedes/her staff, check-in and out, very clean apartment, safe building & neighborhood. Mercedes was a great host and even took us out to tango one night to an under the radar locals' spot. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend this airbnb to a traveller who likes their accommodation full of personality & charm.
