My stay at Michael Koh's place was fine.
I was comfortable and place matched the description.
Thanks for your hospitality Michael.
This is the perfect apartment if you want to stay in the coolest area in Buenos Aires. Palermo has a wonderful vibe with a great cafe culture that helps you soak up the atmosphere of this great city. The apartment is exaclty as described and is very comfortable. At the end of busy day exploring the city the apartment provided a welcoming place to come back to. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching sunset before heading to dinner at one of the many local restaurants. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds we slept in during our whole holiday in Argentina. Excellent security and helpful concierge meant we felt very safe.
The hosts have several properties and they run a very professional service, the sort you would expect in a hotel. Airport transfers were well organised and the hosts were helpful with information and guidance during our stay. I would stay here again.
We arrived a bit later than normal check-in, but the apartment was in a fantastic, quiet-but-vibrant neighborhood. The accomodations were just as described. We were able to take several walking tours around Palermo and had wonderful meals.
The host left a "guidebook" on how to use all apartment features, as well as recommendations on sights and necessities in the area. When/if I return to Buenos Aires, this would be a great place to call home temporarily.
What more can I say other than I love this property. It is exactly as described in the posting and I am looking forward to staying here again. Apartment is comfortable and cozy and in an excellent location in the heart of Palermo Soho. Conveniently located to a large grocery store (1 block away), restaurants, shops, etc. I enjoyed having coffee in the morning on the balcony with a wonderful view then grabbing some sun by the pool after lunch. Bed was very comfortable, water pressure was great (and hot), the air-conditioning units are great and wi-fi works very well. The host that met me at the apartment was very professional and my communications with Michael were promptly answered and very professional. I would highly recommend this property.
Renting with Michael was a really superior experience. Although there were some glitches with the porters of building and with the bathroom, he and his team in Buenos Aires did mavels to make our lives easier and smoother. He was also very flexible and accommodating when we needed to extend our stay with a late check-out.
The apartment was perfectly well equipped with a stunning view.
Definitely a person to fully trust and an apartment to recommend.
Great 1st trip to Buenos Aires. The apartment has everything one needs and is as beautiful as shown on the pictures. Perfect location and above all wonderful staff (always willing to help, to find a solution, very friendly, careful and flexible people). It was absolutely perfect. I strongly recommend renting this apartment.
The pluses: An elegant, upscale apartment in one of the most fashionable neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. The apartment includes updated furniture, including two nice tv sets, wi-fi, dvd (no blue-ray), and cd player. The apartment is located in a safe and very charming neighborhood (Palermo Soho), close to cafes, restaurants and the enchanting Plaza Serrano. I particularly enjoyed the view from the balcony. Michael was an extremely good host who keep in touch with me since I booked the apartment.
The minuses: I was charged an extra $20 fee because my flight was delayed and I arrived 10 (TEN) minutes after 6:00 PM. I didn't know about these "penalty" fees. Perhaps it is my fault but it seemed a bit aggressive taxing approach (perhaps I am too provincial).
There was no hot-water in the apartment the night that I arrived. That is not itself a cause of complaint (these things happen everywhere) but what is a cause of complaint is that the next day I had to call twice to get the hot water re-established. I had to wait until 11:00 AM to take a shower. This relatively small inconvenience could be justified by the fact that it occurred during a holiday. In fact, I wouldn't be concerned about this issue in other visit (although I would check the hot water is running before the check-in process is completed!).
The apartment has lots of electronic gadgets but it lacks paper napkins, coffee filters, salt, pepper, cooking oil, and other elemental stuff that is included in most other places. You don't expect these amenities in a cheap place, but this is not a cheap place.

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.

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.
