Sara and I live in the house. We are fully available all day and night. We like to share time with our guests and make their stay a great stay.
Among the architectural features in Balvanera are the neo-classical Congress building and the statue group in neighboring Plaza Congreso. The El Molino tea room is located across the street in a building that has seen several rounds of restoration since its heyday.
The café Los Angelitos in the corner of Rivadavia and Rincón was a meeting point for poets and musicians. It features a relief of angels in its façade, which is one of the landmarks of the barrio. After extensive restorations, it was reopened in 2007, now it offers live tango shows and it has become a tourist landmark much like the Café Tortoni and Confitería La Ideal.

It would be redundant to write about what has already been written here. Certainly, I could only say and confirm that what they say about Ignacio, is true enough. He knows how to manage his( home business ) and be a genuine host at he same time. It is possibly one of the few people who understands and knows what it is to serve people. As well as, what AIRBNB means in terms of accommodation. If this place sounds like you. Do not hesitate to take it.
Ignacio and Sara had everything ready for my arrival. They also kindly provided information about transportation in the city and helped me to call a cab and order food. Their place is nice and organized, staying in their place in Buenos Aires is a very good option.
Ignacio's place was great!! I was there for one week and he welcomed me with open arms and gave me inside tips about living in BA. The house had a great vibe with great people from all over the world. Truly recommend it!
Ignácio é uma pessoa muito especial, e que sabe o verdadeiro sentido da palavra "anfitrião". Voltaria a repetir tudo de novo, num constante Sísifo existencial.
I've been in mi casa en BA for almost 4 weeks now and for all this time Ignacio was not only a great host but a good friend as well. I was supposed to stay for 12 nights and I extended my stay twice so far, the second time with a very short notice due to an emergency situation I was in. Ignacio was very prompt in accommodating me and I am very grateful for this. The house is very beautiful, it has everything one could possibly need in a house, it is very clean and the overall atmosphere is really great. The area is quiet but safe and there very well connected to all of BA's hot spots.
For the first week of my stay here Ignacio was on vacation and his brother Nico was taking care of the house. Nico was very helpful as host and a great person to be around.
Overall, I am very happy I chose Mi Casa en BA and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to spend some great time in this beautiful city.
Hands down, "mi casa in BA" is the best place I have stayed during my 5 weeks in South America. Beyond the great location (easy walking distance to most points of interest, not touristy, full of lovely old colorful buildings), the space is beautifully decorated (I want the dinning table and chairs!), the architecture is amazing, and the atmosphere is fun/ easy going/ feels like home. From day one I instantly found myself sharing LOTS of really great food/ practicing my spanish/ and drinking great (cheap) wine with the flatmates. Ignacio is a great host-- full of advice/ tips about BA/ has created a great vibe in the lovely home. I will definitely be back to mi casa en BA someday!
I stayed in the house for about 2 months and my experience was very positive. Ignacio is a wonderful host and will help you with anything he can. He cares about the house a lot and works always to keep the house in top shape. Aside from this he is very knowledgeable about the city and has an answer to pretty much any question you can think of. Norma (the cleaning lady) is awesome and you can chat with her to practice your spanish!
The house is well equipped and cleaned twice a week. It is located in residential and not touristy area of the city which has all the basic amenities but gets quiet at night. Still the house’s location makes it easy to get anywhere in the city via bus or subway. The house has a friendly atmosphere and you can spend some quality time with the people in it cooking/drinking wine/partying. Most of my friends in South America are people that have lived in the house at some point during my stay, including Ignacio.
During my stay the house really felt like home- which is a great feeling to have while traveling. Definitely recommended!

About the Host, Ignacio Y Sara
We're a swedish-argentine couple enjoying life together in Buenos Aires, sharing a part of it with people from all around the world. Sara is a literature student born and raised in Northern Sweden and Ignacio is the head coach of a Crossfit box and born in the city of BA.
We both enjoy physical activities and running, going to the gym and tango dancing is all part of our everyday life. We also enjoy cooking and eating good food, preferably with friends and family. You can find us in the kitchen at any time and we're more than happy to try new things. Experiencing new things is also our main reason for travelling, both together and separately. We have covered big parts of Europe, Asia and South America, hoping to see a lot more soon.
If you have any question or you want to know more about us, please don't hesitate to send us a message.
