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.
CONFIRM AVAILABILITY WITH ME BEFORE BOOKING.
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. You will always find complimentary stuff such as a little basket with different infussions and/or local biscuits/sweets and something fresh to drink in the fridge.
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 2.50 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 thrills 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?
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.
I am getting the wood- floors plastic covered this weekend, so it will be more comfortable, you will be able to go bare feet and won't get any dirty!!!!I
Wonderful stay in Buenos Aires! Esther was always available and helpful from start to end! The apartment was great. Awesome location and easy to get around! Everything that was needed was within walking distance! Thank you Esther for being a wonderful host, but also being such a great friend. Nos vemos en algún momento!
NIce small, comfortable apartment! when we arrived at apartment, found fresh cold orange yuice in fridge. Realy nice at hot summer day!
Esther also was very helpfull on suggestions of best places outside apartment!
Ótima experiência com o anfitrião. Apartamento em conformidade com o anunciado e em ótima localização. Recomendo!
Un departamento muy agradable, tranquilo.. Esther es una persona muy linda que se preocupa de todo. Le recomandaria :)
Un pequeño departamento muy acogedor en un lindo y tranquilo barrio. Esther se esmera en que no falte nada, tiene todo lo necesario y mas para estar comodos. El calor reinante nos jugo alguna mala pasada con algunos electrodomesticos, pero en el balance final la estadia merece nuestra aprobacion. Volveriamos o mejor dicho volveremos. Lo recomendamos.
Esther was a great host and very helpful. She ordered a car for us and assisted in making reservations. I recommend her place specifically for her friendliness and hospitality! Thanks again!
Esther went above and beyond my expectations. She gave me good advice about getting to her flat from the Airport as well as BA. She was waiting for me at the apartment and welcomed me with open arms. She also made sure to show me how everything in the apartment worked and made herself available if I needed anything further.
The apartment was the same as the photos and very clean upon my arrival.
The location is hard to beat with everything you need within walking distance.
You can't go wrong with Esther. I would certainly consider staying again upon returning to BA!
I stayed at Esther's apartment 3 nights with my husband and 2 year old son.
She is really pleasant and welcoming. And she even organized a ride for us from the airport.
The apartment itself is really cozy, clean and spacious. It was equipped with everything necessary - kitchen ware, washing machine, soap, shampoo, towels, wifi, and even a phone to call local landlines.
So we really didn't need to worry about anything. There's a playground right across the street where Sebastian, my son, played with the local kids.
The neighborhood is really safe, considered one of the richest in buenos aires, I believe.
Tons of other parks around - botanical garden, zoo, Japanese garden.
The only thing that was somewhat bothersome was a neighbor that put on very loud music until late, but definitely not a deal breaker.
In a few words - great, clean place that I really recommend!
Thanks Esther!! :)
The perfect home away from home!! My husband and i stayed here for 10 days and had a great time! Great location and although we didn't meet Esther she was willing to help us with anything via email and even left us little treats on our arrival! Would definitely recommend!
Apartamento muito aconchegante no coração de (website hidden) internet wifi e próximo ao metrô.
Very cozy appartament. Good wifi and internet, near to the subway.
