The Mint Room with optional breakfast ($10/night, just message me at time of booking!) is located in a beautiful 110 year old palacio, a listed building that has been photographed for the government's book on architecture.
Our gorgeous Jazz-Age mint room is 20m2, with a high ceiling and custom-made four-poster bad. The room sleeps two.
Complete with WIFI internet and access to a large new bathroom with jacuzzi and shower (shared). Guests also have access to the kitchen, dining room and outside patio with BBQ grill facilities.
The house is only a few blocks from San Telmo and within walking distance of downtown, the casa rosada, congresso, Florida street, Teatro Colon, the ecological reserve and many more attractions.
Guests also have access to the kitchen, dining room and the outside patio where our cat, dog, hens and rooster live. BBQ equipment is provided!
Interaction with Guests
Our house-sitters live in the house and are available most of the time to answer any questions you might have about your trip or your stay.
This is a great neighbourhood because there aren't too many tourists so you can see how locals really live! It's also close to lots of tourist spots (casa rosada, congreso, cafe Tortoni, palacio barolo, calle Florida) so you have the best of both worlds.
We are just 3 blocks from Independencia and San Jose subway stations (C line and E line) and near many different bus stops.
Other Things to Note
This is a lovely family area, with the university one block behind and 4 or 5 schools in the neighbourhood, many local bakeries, grocery stores, butchers, stationers, most everything you could need! We are also super close to the downtown tourist spots like Confiteria Ideal, Cafe Tortoni, the casa rosada and congreso building.

100% recommend. Stayed here for nearly three weeks and it is a great place where you will meet interesting people. The location was perfect for walking to San Telmo and Plaza de Mayo. It has two amazing butchers and two fabulous bakeries really close too. It is definitely somewhere where you will feel like a local Argentinian as opposed to just another tourist. Also there is the cutest dog ever.
Amazing place to stay! Historical building in a walkable part of town. Worked out quite well for us. Thank you!!
My stay was great! The entire building was spotless and looked exactly like the photos. The garden was a nice little refuge on a hot summer day. Alex and Lina were great - they were not only helpful, but just really nice people. The pets were also good fun to have around, and make you feel at home.
I felt completely safe in the area, and found it to be well-located. There's a Subte stop a short walk from the apartment.
I wouldn't hesitate to return, or to recommend the room to other travellers. It is on a bit of a busy street, but it is in a major city, so I feel like that's kind of expected .
I loved my stay at Palacio! The building is absolutely incredible! Very unique and beautiful, with lots of old-timey glamour. Lina and Alex hosted me and they were very friendly and helpful with directions and showing me around the building. The location is great as well, close to bus and subway stations and a very short walk to the center of San Telmo.
Our stay in BA was fantastic! the apartment is huge, charming and well located. Lina and Alex were friendly and kind, giving suggestions and help! strongly recommended!
Dear Cee Jay Solomon
I lived 6 nights in your house and can recommend this for everybody who needs a stay near the city, San Telmo, Puerto Madero and La Boca.
Furthermore the house-sitter was nice and every time helpful. Within the house is a cosy atmosphere. I`ll come back sometime.
We had a wonderful stay here. Lina and Alex are amazing hosts, friendly, helpful and have a host of stories to share! Our first couple of nights in Buenos Aires was with them and its was the perfect welcome :)
