About This Listing
A two-room apartment located at the very HEART of Palermo SoHo! Guests love the location and the character of the place. Plus, being a traveler myself I love hosting people from all over so I will make sure you have a great stay!
The apartment is located in a perfect spot: Nicaragua and Gurrachaga Street. This is the very HEART of Palermo Soho! I have lived in this apartment myself for over eight years and have throughly enjoyed this location. You go downstairs and you are right in the middle of an amazing scene: charming coffee shops, great restaurants, cool bookshops, funky designer shops, bars, health food stores...and you've got an invaluable aspect to consider in BA: It's a safe area when you come back home in the small hours!
It's a two-room apartment, 45 sq meters long, with a large balcony overlooking the charming cobblestoned Gurruchaga Street. It's got a comfortable living room with a sofa -with one single size bed- a bedroom with a queen size bed and air-conditioning, a colourful kitchen with a small laundry space attached to it and a bathroom with a shower and bathtub. All the rooms have windows to the outside, which makes it a very bright and airy place. The decor is the product of my own style: colourful and with small, subtle touches.
Everybody says they feel at home here so I guess one of the best things I like about the apartment is the great vibes that are in the air!

Although we never met Priscila, we had great communication with her both before the trip through the airbnb site and during the trip through Skype. Priscilla's friend Poppy met us at the apartment at the decided time, and was very friendly and super helpful in orienting us to the apartment and our location in the city. The apartment was as described, very colorful, clean, secure and we loved it. It is located in Palermo which was very convenient for catching public transportation and walking to local dance and tango locales. It was a perfect home for our nine day stay. Thanks, Priscila and Poppy!
We couldn't have imagined a better place to call home while in Buenos Aires. To start with, Priscilla communicated thoroughly before our arrival and offered advice. Since she was out of town during our stay, her friend Poppy greeted us at the apartment and was the most fantastic host during our stay - very responsive and welcoming. The apartment has a wonderfully relaxed and vibrant vibe, perfect to enjoy yoga after a 16 hour flight, to enjoy breakfast, and to get a great night's sleep after enjoying the nightlife. The location is impeccable, and we were so happy to have Palermo Soho as our home base. We spent a lot of time enjoying the many cafes, restaurants and shopping right in the neighborhood. I highly recommend this spot!
We had a great time at Priscila's place!!! The apartment is just like the description with a great location. The neighborhood is very charming and also the city. We hope to back soon ;)
The price is great, the neighborhood is really nice, and the apartment is comfortable. Although I didn't meet Priscilla in person, she was very attentive. She had someone to take care of me when I came and when I left.
I highly recommend this apartment.
Priscila and her friend were super welcoming, the flat was very nice and located perfectly in the middle of Palermo. We felt like home, everything we needed was there (incl. public transport tickets, guides etc.) and Pris was of great help for tips and advise during our stay. I can highly recommend this flat in Palermo as its surrounded by bars, nice shops and one of the few places in Buenos Aires were you really feel safe!
This apartment is in an excellent location - just a couple of blocks from Plaza Serrano but yet not too noisy there. The apartment is spacious and though simply furnished, it is very comfortable, and has a nice balcony. This being summer in Buenos Aires, the weather was fairly hot and humid on a couple of days but the air-conditioners were very effective. The wifi works great..I'm sure it would be perfectly adequate even for heavy use such as working remotely for the office, although we did not use it for that purpose. The living room is stocked with an eclectic selection of books, and even though I had brought along books to read on this trip, I instead found myself reading an excellent book of short stories from Priscila's collection!
The only (and I really do mean ONLY) area that is in need of improvement is the bathtub area in the bathroom - there were some sections of black spots or growth that made it look very unattractive.
This review would be incomplete without a mention of the hosts and their extremely helpful nature. Priscila was traveling and we did not meet her, but her communication was excellent and she put us in touch with her friend Poppy, who was just as responsive and available. We were traveling to Uruguay for the 3 days prior to our scheduled check-in, and Poppy very helpfully agreed to hold a couple of our bags for us at her apartment so that we could travel light. When we arrived, she and her boyfriend met us at the apartment (bringing our bags with them!) for a late check-in at 10 pm. There was a problem with the stove in the kitchen, and they had it fixed promptly the next morning. Even though we ended up not cooking during our stay, it was nice that the issue was given immediate attention. Our flight out of Buenos Aires was at 10 pm, and once again Poppy was very helpful, allowing us to checkout as late as 6 pm, thus allowing us to make the most of our last day in the city.
I highly recommend the hosts and this apartment.
About the Host, Priscila
I am a location-free entrepreneur who was born and raised in Buenos Aires . I now divide my time between my hometown and other parts of the world. Having been to different cities, I think Buenos Aires has a unique flavour: a city that has re-invented itself many times, yet retaining that special charm. A mosaic of different influences, contrasts and always exuding a special way of enchanting people who surrender to its seductions, secrets and endless adventures.
