Michael is a very professional and attentive host. Our flight into Bs As was delayed by about 12 hours due to the volcanic ash cloud from Chile heading north. Michael proactively got in touch to see how we were travelling, and ensure that we were still met on site for check in when we would eventually arrive.
The apartment is well located with easy access to anything you need to do in Bs As. Either walking distance, metro, or short cab (website hidden) As, is not very tourist friendly with regards to getting a mobile data plan, and although WiFi is available at most places you stop for a meal, coffee, etc, it was a huge plus having internet in the apartment.
We had some complaints with the regards to the apartment, freshness, cleanliness, and lack of some fundamental supplies (which we had to go and purchase - hand towels, bath mat, tea towels), but that said, michael was very receptive to the feedback, and offered to reimburse for our time and expenses. The apartment served its purpose as a base from which to explore Bs As from, and we'd have no problem recommending Michael as a host, and look forward to staying at one of your properties again in future.

About the Host, Michael
Hi, I'm Michael and I'm American. I have more apartment rental experience in Buenos Aires than anyone out there. In fact, I created the luxury apartment rental industry in Buenos Aires back in 2002 when I started the first luxury short-term apartment rental company. I've been renting out my properties in Buenos Aires ever since. I love working with AirBnb guests and have had only positive experience with hundreds of guests over the years. (I've been renting my properties on AirBnb since 2010 so you can book with confidence).
All of my properties are located in the best areas and are extremely well furnished and fitted out. Many locals use very cheap mattresses and horrible furniture but that is where my properties are different and one of the reasons why they are amongst the most requested in all of Buenos Aires. I feature premium luxurious mattresses, upscale furniture, latest electronics, wi-fi Internet access and Cable TV.
My properties and I have been featured/mentioned in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Economist, HGTV's House Hunter's International, Consumer Traveler Magazine, BBC and many other places. So you can book with confidence.
You can see all of my owned properties below. Feel free to contact me with ANY questions or comments. Thanks for your trust and business.

I love staying in high end properties when I travel and I set up my properties with that same high level that I look for. My guests are extremely important to me.
