Colonial house! Pool, solarium, 2BD

House - Entire home/apt · Humberto Primo, Buenos Aires, Capital Federal, Argentina

The Space

Old printing building recovered and furnished in a loft style. Inside, under the high ceilings that make the place bright and spacious, the colonial decoration mixes antique furniture with modern comfort. On the ground floor, one finds the kitchen, dining room, living room with a fireplace, comfortable chairs and a desk, a bedroom with 2 beds, a bathroom, and a large window that opens to the garden and swimming-pool. The main bedroom is located on the mezzanine and has a private bathroom with hydro-massage. The swimming pool and solarium (which are shared with 3 other units on the property), turn the place into an oasis in the busy centre of Buenos Aires. In addition to the pool and gardin there is a BBQ grill, a picnic table, comfortable chairs and stools under a canape, a shower, a bar with appliances for mixing, and a jacuzzi. Maid and babysitting services are available for a fee upon request. Heating by hot air, stove and chimney heathen with woods.

You have to know that San Telmo is the oldest neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It is a well-preserved area and is characterized by its colonial buildings. Cafes, tango parlors and antique shops line the cobblestone streets, which are often filled with artists and dancers.
San Telmo's attractions include old churches (e.g. San Pedro Telmo), museums, antique stores and a semi-permanent antique fair (Feria de Antigüedades) in the main public square, Plaza Dorrego. Tango-related activities for both locals and tourists are in the area.
The apartment is very close to several public transportation and within a walking distance to many to many touristic attractions like Casa Rosada, Avenida de Mayo, Puerto Madero or the nearby parks!
It is really very safe: a walk alone during the nights returning from Milongas where I dance tango.
Rent an old colonial house and immerse yourself into a real Buenos Aires Experience!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartement is a great location and beautifully decorated however there were many mosquitoes in the house and some raid would be advisable to bring. Being in lower apartment there were noise issues from upper apt as well. there is no mension in the advertisement about the apartement not having hanging shower heads, you have to had the shower head in the upper bath top half bending to make sure you are splashing water everywhere and downstair bathroom is also hand hold shower head.

    Response from Mercedes:

    I am sorry about mosquitoes. Usually there aren't a big problem but when you stayed, there was an invasion.
    Thank you for your comment of the shower : We bought a hanging shower today and we will put it tomorrow.

  • The apartment is beautifully designed and comfortable. We really enjoyed our short stay in BA. The location was great, close to many good bars and restaurants as well as the San Telmo Market. Mercedes was wonderful, really responsive and sweet. The garden is beautiful but it does attract a large number of mosquitos so make sure to bring some bug spray if you are there while it rains. Overall a good experience, we would recommend the apartment.

  • a great apartment, beautifully decorated. very cool. great assistance from the team there, very useful to have a mobile to borrow. only thing needed is maybe a warning about the mosquitos. there is a mature garden next to all the apartments and coupled with the weather will attract a lot of mozzies. a warning or some RAID in the apartment would have been useful

  • What fun we had staying in this lovely San Telmo apartment. Located just a block and a half from Plaza Dorrego, you are really in the heart of San Telmo. A little jewel! I great place to stay for a few days to experience a bit of Buenos Aires. Thanks!!!

  • Wir verbrachten vier schöne Wochen in der Casa Santelmo. Wir genossen die Nähe des Plaza Dorrego. Leider hat es in diesem Jahr sehr viel geregnet. Der urige alte Stil des Hauses hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Mercedes ist eine nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Es gab zwar immer wieder mal Sanitäre und Elektrische Mängel, die aber immer rasch behoben wurden. Alles in allem war die Zeit wunderschön. Wir kommen wieder!

  • Mercedes was a wonderful host and the home is pretty awesome. Located steps away from the heart of San Telmo. Very clean. Very comfortable.

    Should note, the pool was dirty due to a storm and it took a few days to clean. Only suggestion to Mercedes is brief neighborhood guide with what is direct around would be a nice touch - although she was happy to help us find groceries and change money.

  • Wonderful, fun and very friendly host. Very quick and efficient in answering emails.

    The actual apartment was also great, clean, very well decorated, plenty of light, in great neighborhood of San Telmo.

    Highly recommend!!!

  • We had a fantastic stay here. The house is absolutely beautiful as per the advertised images. San Telmo is a great area and we felt safe both in the house and in the neighbourhood. Mercedes was a good host and the communication was excellent. The only slight downside was having to checkout at 10am. Overall we would highly recommend this house and we'd definitely stay here again if we returned.

  • Very nice and charming place in a very nice district (San Telmo) and close to a lot of points of interest in the city. The owner is also a nice person, ready to help if necessary. I would recommend this house without any hesitation.

  • We stayed in Mercedes's darling bohemian abode during a weekend stay in BA. We were met promptly by her colleague who got us set up immediately, and although she was under the weather, Mercedes was a super kind host who even invited us out to a tango bar. We loved the San Telmo location (one block from the weekend fair!) and would highly recommend it to other travelers. Thank you for a great experience!
