THIS IS NOT A SHARE. YOU WILL HAVE THE WHOLE APARTMENT FOR YOURSELVES.
Thank you for stopping by! Here's a description of the place and its location.
Living between Paris and Buenos Aires for the last 10 years, I've already hosted many guests from around the world and everyone I have met so far has been absolutely fantastic. You can read my other listing reviews at the bottom of this page.
I look forward to hosting many more future guests from the Airbnb community and share my experience and favorite spots in Buenos Aires!
Bonus: If you're interested in discovering Buenos Aires' burgeoning contemporary art scene I'll be happy to share some precious tips on art galleries, artists' ateliers, must see museums and other gems.
FROM THE AIRBNB NEIGHBOORHOOD GUIDE TO BUENOS AIRES:
“Recoleta is at the intersection of art, culture, architecture, and one very famous cemetery.
Nestled between Retiro and Palermo, Recoleta's Parisian ambiance garnered Buenos Aires the sobrenombre, "The Paris of South America."
Life and death collide in Recoleta, a refined central Buenos Aires neighborhood with spirited energy and an illustrious cemetery. Culture consumers, francophiles, students, and art gallery denizens wait in line together at Starbucks, share baguettes at Plaza Francia's La Feria Hippie, and scrutinize the works of Titian and Goya. Shop, study, or meander through its street fairs—whatever you do in Recoleta, you won't be alone.”
Take a look at Buenos Aires' Recoleta neighborhood:
ABOUT THE APARTMENT:
This very spacious 2 bedroom duplex is centrally located in calle Junin at the heart of Recoleta, one of the more affluent and safe neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Housed in an early-20th century classic French-style building, well-maintained and secured, this 110 m2 (1200 sq ft) apartment is a stylish blend of contemporary art and design furniture.
Located on the 2nd floor with an original vintage elevator, this very quiet duplex with its beautiful hardwood floors, high ceilings and contemporary furniture and artworks offers the perfect comfort for your stay.
The apartment has been recently renovated by an architect respecting the original French style and adding new volumes offering all the modern features such as a high end fully equipped kitchen, a very comfortable bathroom, air conditioning and heating. The blend of vintage furniture and contemporary artworks gives a unique touch to the place. You will also appreciate the calm and the clear view of the quiet private courtyard while being in the very center of Buenos Aires.
The apartment opens on a large living and dining area connected to a fully equipped kitchen, very bright with its own window eyeing on to several courtyards and gardens.
It offers a comfortable office space and 2 separate bedrooms:
- The MASTER BEDROOM is located upstairs. With its double size bed and its own private and comfortable bathroom this bedroom is perfect for a couple. It has air conditioning. Please note that this is a loft bedroom that overlooks the living room, as you can see in the apartment’s pictures. The second room is far enough from the master bedroom so you won’t have sound issues.
- The SECOND BEDROOM, located downstairs has also a double size bed. It doesn’t have air conditioning but is fresh even on hot summer days. A fan is available.
The fully equipped kitchen (including a washing machine) and the large dining room make it easy to enjoy home-cooked meals during your stay.
A professional maid is in charge of the cleaning and ensures that bed linen and towels are changed before and after stays. If you are considering staying in Buenos Aires for an extended period, a weekly maid service is available.

CHECK IN / CHECK OUT:
I'm very flexible with check in and check out times and always try to arrange what's best for the guests.
Please remember to send me your arrival/departure time to Buenos Aires, flight/train and airport/station so I can arrange your check in and check out.
I like to be present for the guests' check in but since I live between Paris and Buenos Aires this is not always possible. In this case I send the key pickup instructions a week before your arrival and you'll be welcomed by charming Ana.
Gabriel's place is very nice, very clean and super well located. We stayed there for a few nights, my husband and I, and our two young kids, and it was perfect. Ana, the lady who takes care of the building, was very helpful and super sweet.
Gabriel has decorated the place in a very special way, making us feel we are at home in a new country. The place is on two levels, one room in the loft, with a full ensuite bathroom, a small office space and a toilet. the main floor has the large living|/dining, the small kitchen and the other bedroom. It was perfect for our needs. Gabriel left a good selection of guide books which we really appreciated.
thank you Gabriel for the wonderful apartment. Loved Annie who helped us very much. The location is ideal and wished we did not move. Recoleta is the best! We loved the everything about the apartment except the air conditioner. It was comfortable.
We would definitely return to stay again at the Gabriels' and the location.
This is an amazing loft. Very clean and stylish. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen and living area were very spacious. This is a great location to stay in Buenos Aires. You are very close to great restaurants, the subte, bars, and museums. Gabriel was very attentive and accommodating. He provided us with an excellent guide for the city. Ana the door woman was also very sweet. We would definitely stay here again!
The apartment was very good, just as shown in the pictures here. It was clean and organized, had a good wi-fi internet, equipped kitchen, and even some city guides from lonely planet. It's has a very good location and it is pretty easy to move around the city from there.
Gabriel was wonderful. Unfortunately he was not in Buenos Aires, so we didn't meet, but he provided all the help I needed and answered all my questions very quickly.
The doorwoman who gave was the key to the apartment was so sweet! Always smiling and available to help!
Thanks for everything Gabriel! Hope to stay in your apartment again in my next trip to Buenos Aires!
Gabriel was so fantastic to host us on such short notice. It is really a beautiful apt but the lower room was a bit warm during the summer nights.
Gabriel had arranged everything very well for us. The apartment was great as was the location. We had a wonderful time and will stay with him again when possible.
Pasamos unos días estupendos en BsAs. El loft es exactamente como se ve en las fotos, acogedor y luminoso...Y a media cuadra de la ave. Santa Fe y a un par de cuadras del subte. Gabriel estuvo por correo atento a todos nuestros pequeños problemas y todo se solucionó magníficamente, gracias a la presencia constante de su padre y de su hermana, a quienes también les mandamos un abrazo caluroso. Creo que lo único negativo, para que se tome en consideración, es que con el tremendo calor que hacía en Buenos Aires en los días que estuvimos, la habitación de abajo resultó excesivamente calurosa y no se solucionó este problema con el ventilador, requiere de su propio aire acondicionado. Agradezco a Gabriel, a su familia y a Airbnb por hacer de esta, nuestra primera experiencia en este sistema, tan grata y maravillosa.
We had a great stay at Gabriel's place in Recoleta. Good location, nice and quiet, plenty of space and very clean. Gabriel's communication was exceptional. He was very proactive with details concerning check-in and check-out. Highly recommend!
Friendly Gabriel, we were very grateful for his quick responses. Lovely apartment and lovely Ana. Would recommend!!
Perfect. Helpful welcoming, cleanness, comfortable rooms, and great neighbourhood, all is there!
Thank you very much Gabriel and Paula!
