Good place for accommodating 2 people at a very good price in the best area of Palermo Botanico.
This is a small, cozy, no thrills apartment.
But will have everything you will need for spending a good time in the city.
THANKS FOR STOPPING HERE!!!
I love hosting guests from all over the world. I met fantastic people and some times I made great friends.
I travelled myself extensively, during the last 10 years I have been living in Ireland. Back in Buenos Aires in 2012, and since I love it´s history and hidden corners I love sharing them with other travellers.
The idea is that you spend a wonderful time here.
If any of my guests is a healthy living lover, please let me know in advance so I can give you tips for having access into my fitness center on a trial pass.
The apartment is located on what is called Palermo Botanico, this is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Palermo Botanico offers the most amazing views of the city. And there is much you can do in the area itself. Based here you can reach other neighborhoods quite easily on the subte for just ARS 4.50 per ticket or you will find buses nearby and everywhere. In front of the building you can take the 37 bus which gets into Recoleta and into Corrientes Avenue.
On Oro street at the back of the building you can take other buses leading into Palermo Soho (though at walking distance) and Villa Crespo.
In Plaza Italia, just 4 blocks from the building you can find buses/metro and trains coming and going from and to everywhere around the city. Plaza Italia is one of the most large transport hubs in the city.
It is 6.2 km away from Jorge Newberry Airport for domestic flights
Let´s get into the apartment itself:
This is an small, cozy, humble and no luxuries apartment located in a very nice neighborhood with a great layout comprising of 1 living room with a dining area, a kitchen fully equipped with refrigerator, microwave oven, juice maker, toaster, and coffe maker. And an iron.
There is a balcony with a new washing machine for extra comfort. I always leave cleaning powder and conditioner available in case you arrive with clothes that need immediate laundry, please make sure you replace it for the next guess after using..
In the bathroom you will find a hair dryer (not a traveller one) and a weight scale.
In the living room you have a flat screen tv of 29'. There is cable TV with option for over 74 channels. And if you want to move it into the bed-room you can as well.
New CD Player with radio and remote has been recently bought as well.
There is an air conditioner in the bed-room for warm days though it is not much needed I´d say unless it´s 40 degrees in the shadow:)
Price includes Internet broad band, cable TV, phone service for local calls, service bills and taxes. All included!!!
There is a professional cleaner that provides clean towels and bed linen before and after every stay.
This area of Palermo is very classy and quiet.
Attractions nearby: Zoo Park, and Botanical Gardens. The USA Embassy is just in front of the building besides the Argentinian Rural Society.
The Palermo Woods -are within the throw of a stone. Here you can go for a stroll, rowing on a boat, skating or just exercising and enjoying Music Festivals or Drive-in cinema, organized by the Government of the City, during warm days.
Walking along Godoy Cruz after crossing Santa Fe Avenue you will reach Plaza Serrano area or Palermo Soho.
Las cañitas is also very near.
You can´t miss it.
Plenty of very good restaurants, shops, Spanish schools and attractions in the area.
Please ask me anything you'd like. I would be more than happy to help with your travel arrangements/taxis from and to the airport, etc.
Please take into account that 2 people have complained about noisy neighbors, bear in mind they could be noisy at times or not and that is something I could not be able to handle to your complete-satisfaction. I have lived in that apartment myself and it worked perfect but noises are not such a hassle to me.
There is a 50 litres hot water tank, it should be enough for 2 people having a shower while being considerate about the environment.
Check in and check out times are flexible within a reasonable time - frame, I always work it out at the convenience of my guests, the best I can, this is why I always ask you to send arrival and departure times into Buenos Aires along with airport/train/ times and airport station you are arriving into.
The most of the times I greet my visitors myself, but if it rarely happens that I can´t I will write an email a week before arrival with detailed directions for everything and Luis, the porter will greet you when checking in.
Anyway I am always available on email, phone, mobile number, (website hidden) or whatsapp.
You ll have private access to the whole apartment, it´s not a sharing.
You will be able to make ilimited phone calls to land lines, mobile phone calls are blocked but you have access to wi fi internet and cable tv (77 chanels).
There is a washing machine in the balcony. Microwave in the kitchen, toaster, freezer and (website hidden) player and air conditioner. What else?
Interaction with Guests
The most of the times I try to greet you in, but if I can't cause of other duties , the doorman (Luis or Alejandro, they are very good when they get the language) will have the keys to hand them over to you.
The neighborhood is lovely. I really like it. It´s very safe.
US Embassy is literally in front of the building, there are very good restaurants, bars and cafes.
Public transport is very good as well, Just crossing the park and you can take the 37 bus that brings you into Recoleta and Corrientes Avenue.
Walking to Plaza Italia will bring you to one of the most populated transport hubs in the city, you get buses everywhere and the subway as well, Line D.
Other Things to Note
Wood- floors plastic covered have been done, , so it will be more comfortable and people who want to go bare feet will be able to do so without getting any dirty.
A Dolce Gusto coffee make have been added for coffee-lovers!!!
Hi Guys, it is ok for non-smokers but smokers should smoke only in the balcony.
Kiki's flat was really nice and clean. The location was just perfect. It was very close to beautiful parks, supermarkets and very close to plaza Italia from where you can catch a bus or metro to go to the city centre. It was next door to American ambassy. The flat had everything what we needed air conditioning, washing mashine, coffee maker, hair dryer... Dealing with Kiki was very easy and without any complications.
Sehr gute Lage, kleine gemütliche Wohnung. Bei Fragen konnte man sich immer an Kiki wenden.
kiki was very friendly and helpful. I didn't meet her personally, but was in touch with her whenever I had an issue. the apartment was perfect for our stay. theres a great café / restaurant at the corner called el colmado. I highly recommend kiki's place!
we felt really welcome, house was clean, it was easy to find and it was nothing luxurious, but very functional. location is great. Kiki had even left us a bus card to use. She gave us good advise, lots of time and was really friendly, fast, effective and helpful. We are going to miss her.
If you look at my history I've stayed in two of Kiki's listing and this is the one there where issues with. She was kind enough to let us stay at one of the Recoleta apartments (which I also ended up staying at and loved) while workers fixed issues with the bathroom and she also refunded the nights of the inconviences. As great as everything is about this place (read the apartment description its all accurate) I can't give this place more than three stars especially considering before I booked there were already complaints regarding plumbing issues. For what its worth by the time we checked out everything worked perfectly.
Essa foi minha primeira experiência com o airbnb e posso dizer que comecei com o pé direito.
Kiki esteve muito disponível em todos os momentos. Respondeu rapidamente ao pedido de reserva do apartamento e todas as dúvidas que tivemos durante o período em que estivemos em Buenos Aires, através do whatsApp e inclusive pessoalmente, o que nos fez sentir muita confiança! Hector, o taxista que ela indicou para nos buscar no aeroporto também foi fantástico.
O apartamento não poderia ter sido melhor. Atendeu muito bem nossas necessidades, me senti em casa! Além das coisas básicas em bom funcionamento, o cartão do metrô foi uma grata surpresa!
O prédio é simples, mas está muito bem localizado em uma parte muito agradável da cidade, próximo a restaurante, supermercado, estação de metrô e dos principais parques abertos de palermo.
Enfim, amamos a cidade e ficamos confortavelmente hospedados!!! Com certeza voltaria e irei indicar sempre!!
Hi Marcelle, thanks for taking the time to write the review on your stay!!! We'd love to host again any other time you'd visit Buenos Aires!!!
I get noticed now about the fixing in the building. This was not a fixing I organised myself, the maintenance guy should have let every apartment know. Sorry about that. I ll bring it to their attention. All the best dear!!!
The flat was adequate, the location very good. Near to Palermo Viajo, Recoleta, many places within walking distance and close to the Subway easily linking you up with other parts of the town.
Kiki was very accessible and helpfull.
