I spent a month in the apartment in Recoleta and I am completely satisfied with the apartment and the host, Marcos Malvido.
I sailed through customs and immigration at the airport and the traffic was not bad so I arrived at apartment early. Marcos was able to interrupt his schedule and meet me early at the apartment.
He gave me a quick tour around the apartment and showed me how everything works. He also gave me helpful information regarding the neighborhood.
The apartment on the top floor which seemed to minimize noise. Everything was clean and in good working order. The apartment is in a good location: 3 veggie markets, 2 bakeries, a drug store, hardware store and a big supermarket all within 100 meters from apartment exit. Even though I walked most places for the most part, 2 blocks from the apartment is the subway so that combined with all the cabs in Buenos Aires made it very convenient.
I would use Marcos as host again and I would stay in same apartment again.
I loved my stay here and very sad to leave. Excellent location, 2 min walk to COTO the supermarket (very handy) - Walking distance to the Subte (Aguero) 5 min. Alto Palermo Shopping Mall/Cinema is 12min.
The DIY Launderette in the basement is cheap - but be careful I've had clothes ruined in the washing mashing (clothes came out with oil stains/bleach stains).... Use the Launderette opposite is $27 pesos per load (USD$3.00) . The doorman is always there which is reassuring. Area is safe and well lit. The owner needs to change the pots and pans in the APRT as they are ruined by previous tenants.
The only negative for me is the noise of the elevator motor which is on the top floor (same level as the bedroom)- you can hear it every time it's in use and the walls are quite thin - so you hear your neighbors.
Plenty of storage space - the bedroom is huge and the living room very comfortable - 1 balcony and a lovely terrace upstairs makes it a nice and airy place.
I wish I booked it for longer. Will definitely book this again and comes really highly recommended from me.
The apt. conveniently located in the heart of Recoleta is equipped with everything needed for a very comfortable stay. The architecture with the bedroom gives you a feeling of soce, and the furniture is new and modern. The washing machine was also very welcome after our 3week trip. And the air conditioning saved us from 38 degrees outside. Marcos was very helpful and explained where to go and what to do. He lives near by and is always available.
We truly enjoyed staying at the apartment for one month. We especially liked the other of the balconies, which was located at the 8th floor. The A/C and all other amenities were working properly and we did not encounter any problems during our stay. I would definately consider staying at this apartment again!
Marcos is a very reliable and a great host, who helped us with all practicalities. Thank you so much!
The check in process was very easy, the pictures are a very true and accurate representation of the apartment, which is fully equipped with utensils, towels and sheets.
The apartment is centrally located and only one block away from the subway, and Santa Fe - one of the main avenues in BA. The hosts were extremely helpful and were there to help with every question and need. I would not hesitate in recommending Marcus and his apartment in BA - it was a much more pleasurable experience than a sterile hotel room.
The loft was a very comfortable place to stay in Buenos Aires. The Subte, supermarket, restaurants and everything else was within close walking distance. It was nice having a 24hr doorman. Marcos was a great host, he responded quickly to my emails, was very helpful, and knows the neighborhood very well. I recommend him highly as a host.
