We had a lovely stay at Buenos Aires in this apartment building as advertised by Marcos Malvido. Beforehand we had read very positive reviews but also one that said they ended up in a different apartment than they expected. We informed Marcos that we wouldn't mind if that would happen if the apartment was in the same building etc.
The apartment was actually better than the one that was advertised and it really became a "home away from home". The building felt very safe and the pool area was lovely and sunnier than we had expected. The apartment itself was quite spacious and very well equipped. Moreover, there is a super market around the corner where you could buy just about everything you can think of. We had breakfast on the balcony every day and we even decided to stay in for Christmas and cooked our own three-course dinner in the kitchen!
The location is excellent in a relatively quiet part of the Charcas street in Palermo. Many lovely restaurants and other amenities (subway, shops, museums, clubs) are within acceptable walking distance, although late at night we usually preferred taxi's (for European standards they're cheap anyway).
We never met Marcos f2f because it wasn't necessary but he was very helpful via e-mail (for example with making arrangements for transport to/from the airport) so I am sure that he would have been there if we needed him to be.
We absolutely loved the apartment and were actually sad to go home.
Excelente trato y predisposición. Cumplimiento impecable de lo pautado. Extraordinaria calidad de servicio y cordialidad. Lo recomiendo 100%.
My flat was fine. However it was not this one pictured but one on the first floor, just above the street. The laundry room was great, and it was nice to have a pool...but there's only 4 chairs, it's a small area, and the way the building is...the pool doesn't get much sun anyways. Not once - because it was crowded - was i able to enjoy the pool. First come first served, be warned. Good location, which is really why I chose the flat.
Marcos and Juan were very nice, but it was all very confusing as to who the owner was. I thought it was Marcos, but he said NO, he was a manager of many apartments in BA. I met Juan - also very nice - and was told he was the owner, but then discovered form him that he also owned - or was it managed?? - 4 - 6 other flats in the same building. So does he own 6 flats, or is he too a manager??
Why am I saying all this? Because I would rather rent from an owner, someone who owns their own flat and not 10 others or someone who manages 20 other flats.
I think AIRBNB needs to establish some rules and let us all know if an apartment is self-owned or being rented out by some company. I ALWAYS prefer to help out individuals, to give my money to them, and not to some company. I think anyone who has 2 or more apartments in a city is probably a manager and NOT an owner, so we should know that without having to dig and dig into the profiles, etc.
Perhaps those flats managed on AIRBNB by a company should NOT be allowed to have a personal photo. It seems a bit misleading to show a photo of someone implying they're the owner, only to find out they are simply a manager for a big rental company.
I have also sent an email to AIRBNB letting them know my feelings.
Having said that, Marcos and Juan were very nice, and aside from the TV being small I was fine here for my 28 days. Ands always I left the flat spotless and was respectful to everything within the flat.
Karl stayed during the highest season of the year, that's why the pool might have been a bit crowded, especially during weekends. During weekdays there are not more than two or three guests. Regarding ownership, my friend Juan is the owner, I help him especially for language issues. I work on my own so there is not any big rental company managing the apartments.
The apartment was as advertised. Its in a good location for livability. Its a mile or so from the club and restaurant areas but great for shopping and the mall.
Clean studio in good location.
