71 positive reviews and over 20,000 page views guarantee you will have a true airbnb experience!


Accommodates 4 people. 1 master bedroom with a double bed (a/c or heating) + 1 Single room (ceiling fan) + Bathroom with bathtub with jacuzzi features + well equipped kitchen + cozy living room with double bed fold out sofa (a/c or heating).

This is my second property listed in airbnb and throughout over 2 years of experience with the site, my main priority is to make people feel at home! I can assure you will have a great time, in a great area. This is a very pretty and spacious apartment that is located in one of the most "turisty" (closest to the main turist attractions) and bohemian neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. I must advice that this is an apartment in the city, so it can get noisy.

Fabulous for someone who is gonna be touring the city. The apartment is small,but well decorated and equipped. The sofa bed in the living room is a fold out double bed, meaning that as a whole the apartment can fit up to 5 people if needed. 1 bathroom with a tub that has jacuzzi features: this means that the tub has a massage jet for your legs. The kitchen has just been renovated (so is ALL of the apartment) and is fully equipped for cooking great meals at home! Also, there's always available the basics (salt, pepper, oil, etc) and some breakfast goodies for your arrival so you don't have to rush to supermarket.

I can give you information of where and what's going on in the city. Sheets and towels provided. Wifi included. Closet for storage. Small safe in the apartment.

The apartment is located in the heart of San Telmo closest to the main activities of this bohemian neighborhood. (one apartment is across from the other one, CHECK OUT MY LISTINGS!) There are SEVERAL bars, restaurants, and for safety there's a police station around the block. Within a radius of 5 blocks there are at least 6 different supermarkets. It's close to Plaza Dorrego, La Boca, Plaza de Mayo, Subways, Buses, Puerto Madero.

Once you make the reservation, I email information about transportation and start communicating with the guest at least 2 weeks prior to the arrival so that they don't have any doubts and can make their stay more easy going and enjoyable. (that includes that if you want to know something about say a soccer game, I will email you information so you can research before hand and not have to worry about it once you are here)

PLEASE ASK ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU NEED BEFORE MAKING A RESERVATION! I will respond in the least amount of time possible. ;)

Please share, like, donate on this page. A very close friend is going through a hard time with cancer and would appreciate your collaboration. Thank you in advance and I'm at your disposal for any questions or concerns you might have. (website hidden)

My priority is making your stay as pleasant as possible and to provide the best customer service in the area. I manage both properties (one across the street from the other) so I am always around to be of any kind of help. The apartment building is quiet in itself although located in a very busy area.

  • If you are going to stay in San Telmo, then don't pass up this brilliant opportunity to stay in one of the most fantastic places of Buenos Aires! Cecelia's apartment has it all! You won't be disappointed with it! Right from the beginning I felt at home. The apartment is very conveniently located, bright, modern neat and tidy. It was with great pleasure to meet Cecelia's father Cecil who greeted me upon my arrival, he made the process very easy. If you are looking at five star accommodation then look no further because this has it all, you'll be surrounded by nice restaurants, maxikioskos, transport and walking distance to the city centre! When I come to Buenos Aires next, I'll definitely opt for staying in Cecelia's place!! Thank you so much!!

  • Venho hoje reportar a minha primeira experiência com o Airbnb, e já de início vou dizendo que foi excelente. Reservei o apartamento da Cecília e logo em seguida ela aprovou a reserva e no dia seguinte me enviou um e-mail contendo todas as informações necessárias: endereço do imóvel, telefones de contato, e dicas de Buenos Aires. Confirmei alguns detalhes com a Cecília por e-mail logo após a reserva e também dois dias antes da viagem para a Argentina.
    Não cheguei a conhecer a Cecília pessoalmente, mas quem nos recebeu no apartamento foi o seu pai, que foi muito simpático e explicou todos os detalhes do apartamento. Ele fala português fluente e não tivemos problemas em conversar com ele.
    Quanto ao apartamento, tivemos uma ótima surpresa: o apartamento é maior e muito melhor do que é apresentado pelas fotos. O quarto com a cama de casal tem um bom tamanho, possui armário embutido, e ar condicionado com dupla função (refriar ou aquecer). O segundo quarto é menor, mas tem um tamanho adequado que nos atendeu perfeitamente. A cozinha é perfeita, com tudo que um viajante precisa para preparar pequenas/médias refeições. Todos os utensílios e equipamentos de cozinha (fogão, geladeira, microondas, máquina de lavar) são novos.
    O que mais nos agradou no apartamento foram os pequenos detalhes que a Cecília tem em mobiliar e decorar o apartamento. São esses pequenos detalhes que fazem grande diferença. Nos sentimos como se estivéssemos na nossa própria casa.
    Tínhamos lido nos comentários já postados que o apartamento é barulhento, mas não observamos esse problema durante nossa estadia. Ficamos no total de 5 noites no apartamento e dormimos tranquilamente sem barulho algum.
    Recomendo à todos o apartamento da Cecília. Quando eu voltar a Buenos Aires vou ficar novamente no apartamento pois não há opção melhor, tando economicamente, quanto à qualidade de hospedagem proporcionada.

  • We were greeted by Cecilia's father who spoke perfect English. He showed us around and explained perfectly all the workings of the spacious comfortable flat. The location was perfect for us, right in the old part of the city and accessible to everywhere. We felt safe and secure, not least because there were normal people going about their business of dinner etc until midnight each night.
    We had security access to the flat and found it to have everything we needed. The washing machine was great and the internet always worked. We only did breakfast for ourselves as there were great restaurants nearby, including one with a special of the day for 23 pesos. There were buses on the next street and a good market 200m away, open each day, also several supermarkets, bakeries and butchers within 100m. It was a very good place to be for the week we stayed.

  • Nuestra experiencia en el departamento de Cecilia fue extraordinaria. Primero se comunicó directamente con nosotros a través del website entregándonos información, enviándonos correos y muy preocupada por ayudarnos, y, aunque no la conocimos, su familia se preocupó de entregarnos el departamento en muy buenas condiciones. Segundo, el departamento estaba limpio, ordenado y en excelentes condiciones; el lugar era tal cual en las fotos, pero disfrutamos de la comodidad (de hecho tenía aire acondicionado sin haberlo nombrado en el website). Creo que fue la mejor elección que pudimos haber hecho. Con respecto al sector, nunca tuvimos algún problema y está muy cerca de todo; caminando llegamos al centro, a dos cuadras de la feria de San Telmo, cerca de restaurants, etc. Le hemos recomendado el departamento a todos nuestros amigos. Quedamos muy contentos con todo y si volvemos a ir a Buenos Aires, no dudaremos en quedarnos ahí.

  • It was a pleasure to make Cecilia's apartment our home for 4 days in Buenos Aires. We were met by her father, Cecil, who gave us a full run-down on the lovely space. They provided maps of the city, a bus card for city buses, and even coffee for the mornings! Cecil was available by cell phone to answer our questions, and San Telmo turned out to be a great spot from which to explore a lot of the city. Would definitely stay with Cecilia again!

  • We had a great stay at the apartment thanks to Cecilia and her Dad. We never met Cecilia, but her Dad was fantastic at sorting everything out.
    The location is great right in the heart of tango.
    We watched tango on plaza Dorrigo, we took lessons and everything was very convenient and just like on the pics. The power cuts were certainly not Cecilia's fault. I will be back once back in BA

  • Un appartement tout à fait sympa, très confortable où tout est prévu pour un séjour agréable. Bien situé, dans un quartier à quelques pâtés de maison des métros et bus. J'ai été enchantée de mon séjour chez Cecilia et je le recommande vivement.

  • A casa é realmente linda e confortável, exatamente como está nas fotos. É extremamente bem localizada, próxima de várias modalidades de transporte público, de supermercados, bares, restaurantes, livrarias e pontos turísticos. Além de tudo, ainda é muito silenciosa, mesmo estando localizada, de verdade, no coração de San Telmo.
    O pai de Cecilia, que foi quem me recebeu, é uma pessoa muito atenciosa e agradável! Em termos de hospedagem, foi uma experiência inesquecível!

  • Loved dealing with Cecilia. She was easy to reach and coordinate details with and she even sent us a bunch of info on Buenos Aires and San Telmo which helped us find great activities. Her father was also a gem, he did the check in/out and even gave us a ride to the airport. We found the apartment to be a perfect configuration, including two bedrooms, a living room, and a nice kitchen. All super clean and well stocked. The location can't be beat - you are literally a block away from the main San Telmo plaza and all it's restaurants, bars, and activities. But of course the price for the location is that the street noise is very loud late into the night. So come ready to party in the buenos aires night life or bring earplugs.

I started with airbnb over 2 years ago. First one of my rooms, then all the apartment. Had people live with me, and I am a constant traveller, so my main concern is always and has always been to make them feel as if they're home. I do this in order to travel to nyc where my family lives. This is my main source of income to be able to do that, thus I take very good care of the people that make their reservations and have their questions. I have a degree in restaurant management where i have learned about the hospitallity industry. I like it when people that come to my apartments feel as if they are home and safe. They can ask as many questions as they want. I work most of the time at the Zoo of Buenos Aires, so generally i take care of answering questions and programming check ins and outs. Most of the times I am able to make it to meeting the person, however some other times my parents (Cecil and Susana) are there to greet the guests and make sure they have everything. If you want to know more, or have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me. I am very easy going and will answer as soon as possible. :)
