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.

  • La habitación es muy luminosa y céntrica, tal y como se describe. Mario,
    el anfitrión fue muy atento y agradable en todo momento. El ambiente en
    su casa era muy familiar, me sentí muy bien acogido, como si estuviera
    en mi casa. Mario incluso compró un colchón nuevo que fuera al
    gusto de mis preferencias.
    En general, todo muy bien, super recomendable!

  • If you're going to visit Buenos Aires, I highly recommend that you stay at Mario's house. I stayed here for a week and was amazed at the reception I received. Mario's property is neat and tidy, it has lots of character and charm and is a stone throw away from the city centre. Mario and his friends Ivan, Angel, Elizabeth and Bruno were very accommodating and easy going. And if you're a dog lover like me, you'll love Tobi, the household pet. He was also very welcoming. I would stay here again when next my travels bring me to Buenos Aires. Many thanks to Mario and his friends for their hospitality and for making this an unforgettable experience!

  • La casa de Mario es un lugar muy acogedor donde uno se siente bien, como en su casa. Está muy bien situada, fuera del bullicio de las calles centricas, en un barrio residencial y tranquilo de la ciudad, pero al mismo tiempo a dos pasos del centro y de todo tipo de transportes (metro, autobús) Mario es una persona de confianza y un guía muy bueno y muy dispuesto para responder a diferentes interrogantes. Les recomiendo calurosamente este lugar para una estancia corta o larga.

  • Mario's flat is full of character and charm, in my opinion offers a brilliant opportunity for experienced travelers to interact with real people in an interesting neighborhood somewhat off the routine tourist route. I found Mario as a host to be warm, knowledgeable and very available to answer practical questions, provide needed information about the barrio and city, and engage in extemporaneous conversations about the history and culture of Argentina.

  • Para mi fue el lugar perfecto para poder adaptarme los primeros dias de mis vacationtes a Buenos Aires. El lugar esta a 40 metros de la estacion de subte. Mario y sus inquilinos son personas muy educadas y te ayudan en lo que pueden. La proxima vez que este en Argentina seguro que pasaré a darles una visita.

  • The room and apartment is very comfortable and private - like having your own place in Buenos Aires - it's conveniently located next to the Venezuela subway station (though if you are a very light sleeper you may take a few nights to adjust to the sound of traffic). The apartment is a lovely place to stay, and Mario is extremely friendly and interesting person. You'd be very lucky to stay here.

  • Dear Mario!

    Thanks very much for your hospitality!! It was a great pleasure to be with all of you! I really have enjoyed my stay and the talks we had. All of you have showed much more about living in Argentina and specially in Bs As. The location was very well situated and not that far from downtown. It is a really beautiful town and I hope to come back one day and discover much more of Bs As.

    I hope you will meet much more people coming and enjoying your room and a special greeting with un abrazo fuerto to you, Evan, Angel and Elisabeth and a wink for Tobi and Perra!

    Saludos,
    Bram
