THIS IS NOT A SHARE; you will have the whole apartment for yourselves.
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.

Recoleta is sleek, chic and classic Buenos Aires. It’s comparable to neighborhoods like the Upper East Side in New York, Leblon in Rio de Janeiro and Madeleine in Paris.
Recoleta neighborhood is one of the more affluent and safe districts in Buenos Aires. This downtown residential area has great historical and architectural interest making it an important tourist destination and a cultural center of the city.
Recoleta’s French-inspired brownstones are located around the corner from some of the city’s finest designer boutiques, art galleries, elegant restaurants and a robust cafe culture.
Bounded by the city geographical center and San Telmo to the east and ultra-trendy Palermo to the west, you'll be surrounded by beautiful parks and green spaces such as Plaza Francia and Thays Park offering many activities: botanic garden, zoo, picnic areas, bike paths and concerts.
Santa Fe Avenue, just one block away, claims the top spot as Buenos Aires’s busiest shopping corridor. Upscale shops, excellent restaurants both grand and intimate, trendy cafés, nightlife spots and a walker's paradise are just outside your door. You'll find literally everything in the surrounding area (5-20 minutes walking distance):
- The MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art), The MNBA (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes).
- The botanical garden and the zoo.
- Great areas for strolling: Palermo, San Telmo, Plaza San Martin and Puerto Madero.
- Cinemas, Opera (Colon Theatre) and nightlife (Tango, clubs, lounges, cafes and bars).
- The mythical library "el Ateneo" housed in an early-20th century theatre.
- A supermarket across the street, bakeries, pharmacies, ATM machines/banks, florist, wineries and other specialized shops.
TRANSPORTATION & PARKING:
The apartment is a great base to discover the city with quick access to all subways and sightseeing. The subway station (Facultad de Medicina, D Line) is 2 blocks away, like most bus stops that will take you almost anywhere in the city: Palermo, San Telmo, Plaza San Martin, Las Canitas and Puerto Madero. The main train station and Newberry Airport for domestic flights are also close.
Three parking garages are near the apartment (less than 100 meters).
Everyone respectful to neighbors and considerate to the space is welcomed. No "party" types.
This is a very quiet residential building so please keep noise down during your stay especially at night.
If you smoke, make sure to ventilate the apartment for the comfort of the next guests.
Please remember to take out the trash; you can leave it at night in the entrance and the doorwman will pick it up.
The experience was great and the apartment is right next to Sante Fe Avenue, which is a major shopping street. Gabriel was extremely responsive and checked in how we were doing, while also providing us with sound recommendations.
The place is about 3 blocks away from a subway line that will take you to all the major tourist attractions in BsAs.
We had a lovely stay in Gabriel's apartment and he was a fantastic host, helpful and very responsive.
The apartment is in a great location and is a really nice base to explore BA. One thing to note: the only bathroom with a shower is en-suite, so be prepared to share!
The appartement is elegant and personal.
Gabriel is a very nice and flexible host. Even from Paris he is easy to reach and takes care of your needs like an early check-in. Location is real BA at it's best. A very nice and dynamic part of Recoleta and great to walk around. And coffee and medialunas around the corner. Very recommendable!
Nice appartment, absolutely quiet; check-in and check-out well organized, friendly and helpful owner; we shall certainly return next time when in BsAs
Very nice apartment in a very nice neighborhood! We enjoyed very much our stay at Gabriel's place which we can highly recommend for others to do as well.
Furthermore, during our stay Gabriel contacted us several times to make sure we were feeling comfortable.
Though Gabriel was away when I stayed in his apartment it felt like he was there the whole time! He was extremely communicative and addressed any questions or concerns I had right away. Key pick up was very quick and efficient.
The place itself is stunning, the pictures do not do the property justice, much more spacious in real life. Large for one person but who can complain about more space? Would be an ideal space for a group of travelers. Such a great deal for an amazing space in a conveniently located area. Would definitely recommend!
