Interaction with Guests
Interaction with guests really depends on the guests. If a guest want to be left alone, I let them be. If they want to indulge in Buenos Aires living, I don’t deter them from joining in my activities.
The last guest was invited to dinner at one of my friends house. After dinner we all went out to a night club. The day after, we had lunch, we had afternoon coffee/tea and people watch.
We stayed friends after. So it’s really up to you as my new guest.
My neighborhood has being voted over and over as being the best neighborhood to live Buenos Aires.
It’s a cultured area with everything beautiful in Buenos Aires at your door step. The best cafes, restaurants, Museums, transportations, nightlife are all walking distance from my neighborhood.

You can’t go wrong in my place and my neighborhood.
Common sense & fairness prevails with me but I need you to bear the followings in mind:
1, No slamming of doors, especially at night.
2, No noise or loud music at night.
3, No smoking in the apt or in the building.
4, Turn air-condition or heat off when not in your room or in the apt.
5, Turn of lights when not in your room or in the apt.
6, Turn of lights in other areas of the apartment if you are not there.
7, when you come and go out of the apt, close windows/sliding doors in the rooms so that rain does not get in if it rains unexpectedly. You can leave the windows/sliding doors open a little bit to let air in if you want but wide open when your are not there is not a good idea.
8, when you come and go, lock the doors with keys.
9, if you lose the keys you will need to pay for replacements.
10, My rooms/apartment are offered as a living space not an office space. You cannot use the communal areas/living room as an office space.
11, Leave everything as you found them. Common sense & fairness prevails here — always......Thanks
Excellent location, the room was also very comfortable.
Carlos is very reachable through the Airbnb portal only. He is very kind, there was an issue when I arrived so he upgraded my booking from a single room to a double. Make sure that Elba is at home when you arrive... Place is very much recommended for this price.
Die Wohnung ist sehr gut gelegen und ruhig. Das Bad war nicht sauber. Carlos habe ich nicht persönlich gesehen, aber die Kommunikation war am Anfang etwas seltsam, jede Menge Regeln und Mißstimmung beim Check-In. Ich habe mich nicht wirklich willkommen gefühlt. Am Ende war es aber freundlicher. Elba, die für ihn nach der Wohnung schaut, ist sehr sympathisch.
Carlos was very very helpful with all of my questions about the city and in helping me secure a few things I needed--but note that his long list of "house rules" doubles in length when you get the booking confirmation. The apartment itself was quiet with no street noise. Location was wonderful. I did feel that the cost of the room was too high relative to its value and prices of other rooms around the city--no specific complaints but it is an old apartment and the shared bathroom wasn't all that great.
Great clean room in a very safe and scenic location. Carlos and Elba were very helpful from the warm welcome on through my stay.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Carlos's. The location is fantastic and has everything you need within walking distance. Carlos is quick to respond to any enquiries you may have and I also had the opportunity to meet some other travellers who were staying in the other rooms which was nice.
Con una ubicación privilegiada es un lugar que dan ganas de quedarse o volver, gracias por las preocupaciones de Carlos y Elva.
My stay in Buenos Aires wouldn't' have been the same without Carlos and his amazing apartment: spacious, clean, luminous, and situated in a beautiful and very safe "barrio".
My stay at Carlos' place during 7 weeks -I went to Argentina for an internship- was a wonderful experience. Not only I felt at home - I lived the Portenian experience as if I was from the city -, but I also met people coming from all over the world who stayed at Carlos' for a few days.
At the end, I did not get the chance to meet Carlos in person, but I can tell how Carlos was present, giving me advices, asking me for fresh news, organizing my arrival at the airport...in one word: Carlos is a great host, and I cannot wait to get the opportunity to start a new internship in BA, or to go back there for tourism, and this just to go back to Carlos and at least meet him!
So go for it!!!!!
