The space

I am renting an independent room in my home, in an old, beautiful and well conserved building, in the nice and safe neighborhood of Balvanera (border with downtown). The apartment has vaulted ceilings, wood floors, character; it’s very warm and cozy. It has a nice window overlooking the street. There are 6 rooms and a terrace, two people live here but only one room is available for rent. The location is great because it’s close to downtown, but not in the most hectic/commercial part. You are also very close (30 m) to a subway station (Venezuela) and you can combine with the other lines. Also you have a lot of different Bus Lines that connect to many different destinations. It is within walking distance of anywhere downtown or Recoleta, one block from Av Belgrano, and a few miters from Av Jujuy, close from the main faculties of the University of Buenos Aires. Ideal for students or foreign travelers, for short or long stay.
I’m a senior academic in Social Sciences and I use to study my PhD at the London School of Economics in London. Also I’m a Spanish teacher. Perhaps could be helpful for your studies or your work. Also I can give you advice about the city and about travel all over the region. We have two dogs.

The description is very accurate. I stayed for a month and found it a very comfortable place to stay in general. The flat is central enough to be easily accessible and navigable, but far enough away from the most central bits to be a calmer and (slightly) quieter. Staying here definitely gave my trip a much more local feel, and many of the Porteno friends I made commented on the 'authenticity' of the neighborhood. The room itself is small, but comfortable, more than enough for a place to rest one's head in the evening. Mario was very accommodating and flexible with me, he's a very easygoing host.

Mario's house is comfortable, Mario is friendly and knowledgeable about Buenos Aires. The apartment is full of books, exactly how one would picture the house of a college professor. It's also right next to the Subte. All in all a good stay!

I spent a month in this room and it was a really good experience! Mario and Carlos, the guy who also lives there, were really kind and helpful. The room is big, there's space for everything and the bed was comfortable. The refrigerator was good and there was a heater as well, which was convenient. The street is kinda busy so if you have light sleep it could be a problem. The bathroom can seem a little weird at first, but it works fine, the shower is great and with warm water. There was a leak in the toilet, which I don't know if it's gonna be fixed. I could use the washing machine, the kitchen and the wifi worked well. The location is excellent. The Subte (Line H) station is literally on the corner and also there are lots of buses, so you can get anywhere in Buenos Aires pretty easily. I felt safe walking around the neighborhood, even at night. There's a market, a panaderia and some restaurants around. I recommend Mario's place and I really felt at home there!

I enjoyed the time I spent at Mario's place. He was an excellent host and gave me good advice on where to go in the city. He also invited me to Tigre to go sailing on his boat which was a great experience.

I really recommend Mário's place. Mario is an amazing host, the bedroom is great, big, very private, close to a subway station, a bakery that also servers luch to go and a market. The place is also very close to the most historic and touristy places of Buenos Aires. Mario is also a great host, very kind and respectful. I really recommend it.

I had a very nice stay at Mario's place. The room is very cozy, it has a mini-fridge and plenty of space to store your stuff. There is a small market just in front of the building and a wonderful bakery right on the corner. The subway (subte) station is very close and you can reach downtown very quickly. Mario was very nice and helpful. This is a real find in Buenos Aires!

The place is really good. Someone said the house is like a museum and I totally agree. Room is so comfortable even has a mini refrigerator. The bathroom is awkward at first but completely comfortable. A supermarket, unisex hairdresser and a kiosk open late hours are just next to the house. Also metro station is on the corner. Mario is a great host, knows everything, very helpful and kind. One of the best place to stay in city.
