About this listing
Hi, this was originally my sister's flat that she used as a writer's getaway for a few months every year. It's a large, comfortable space in the best part of Palermo, equally perfect for getting the creative juices flowing or for exploring the city.
Lovely 1 bed apartment in a classic building in the heart of Palermo Soho. In the middle of the 'pulmon de manzana'/interior open space, it is well shielded from any noise from the street. Its high ceilings and wall to wall windows flood the apartment with light to create a beautiful airy space. Lovingly decorated to be a real 'home from home' it is perfect for writers, artists and creative types.
It's a great central location, ideally positioned between Plaza Italia and Plaza Serrano. So you're within easy walking distance of both, but far enough removed to be out of the hustle and bustle. 3 blocks away are all the transport links (subte D and many many bus lines) of Plaza Italia on nearby Santa Fe. You're a short walk to parks, the Botanic Gardens, and of course all Palermo Soho's famous boutiques, restaurants, bars and nightlife are on your doorstep.
Local amenities including supermarkets, organic food shops, restaurants/pubs, discos/bars, ice cream parlours, local internet coffee shops, banks and ATM machines are all within a few blocks.
A very short cab ride away are Las Canitas, with its restaurants, bars and polo fields; the Costanera, with its top nightclubs; Aeroparque Jorge Newberry, the domestic airport; Recoleta, with its lovely architecture and stunning cemetery; and San Telmo, with its historical buildings and markets.
The apartment is 77 square meters, fully furnished, and has a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a full bathroom. Very spacious living/dining room with a table for 6, 2 very comfortable sofabeds with coffee table and cable TV and DVD. Has wifi, and ACs in living room and in the bedroom.
For stays of 2 weeks or more there is a maid who comes once a week. Hot water and central heat. Includes bedclothes and towels.
Please make sure to read the House Rules section also.
I live in BA, so am around to answer any questions you might have.
Security deposit payable in cash on arrival (fully refunded at checkout if there are no damages or breakages):

Normally check-in and check-out times are very flexible depending on your travel arrangements.
However if you are checking-in/out on the same day that another guest is checking-out/in and it's not possible to work out a mutually convenient arrangement for everybody then you may have to be prepared to arrive later or leave earlier than you would ideally like.
If all else fails, then the following check-in/check-out times will apply:
- Check-in 3pm
- Check-out 12pm
I will always try to help out as much as possible in these cases and, if necessary, luggage can be safely left for a few hours in my other apartment nearby.
