Walking distance from Recoleta, and 2 subway lines this 2 bed/ 2 bath apartment is ideal for anyone who wants to have access to everything, but not pay touristy Palermo prices for amenities. An upscale home you can relax in and enjoy.

The Space

Conveniently located walking distance from the Recoleta district, this 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment is in a French building from the 1920s. It has recently been totally refurbished with modern fixtures, high ceilings, large open kitchen, yet retains it's original charm and classic style.

Features include: 100 sq/mts, 16 foot high ceilings, impeccable oak parquet floors, original French windows, beautifully decorated spacious living/dining room, modern bathrooms, queen size bed with high quality linens, spacious closets, brand new kitchen fully equipped with electric appliances.

Wandering the streets in this heavily French influenced area, you will find some of the best shopping centres, leather shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries, and parks in Buenos Aires. Just three blocks away, lies the famous shopping street 'Avenida Santa Fe', which became the preferred venue for upscale shopping in Buenos Aires in the 1950s.

Within walking distance is the remarkable Recoleta Cemetery, Eva Peron's famous resting place, and several universities including the Faculties of Medicine and Economics. If you don't mind a longer stroll, why not enjoy Buenos Aires' beautiful sunny weather and walk to the Obelisk on your way 'dowtown' to the micro center (1-2km).

This apartment really is in a fantastic central location. If you want to explore other parts of this lively city, you are just one block away from Subway stations 'Facultad de Medicina' or 'Callao'. Alternatively a short taxi, bus, or subway ride will take you almost anywhere you want to go.

Interaction with Guests

You will be met at the apartment by someone with a key, and you can communicate with them for any questions or concern during your stay.
I like to check in with guests periodically via email to see if they have arrived safely and again shortly before they check out. I can always be reached via email, but the key holder is the best person to contact for local matters.

The Neighborhood

Within 1-2 blocks in any direction you have several bakeries, vegetable stands, butcher shops and small supermarkets. Two different subway lines are easily accessible on foot and Recoletta cemetery is a 20 min walk.

Getting around

You are just a few blocks walk from 2 different subway lines, which give you access to most of the city.

  • Alana was very welcoming and hospitable upon our arrival. We were provided with a quick tour and were very happy with what we saw. The pictures we viewed on line did not disappoint. We we were also provided with multiple maps of the city and a very detailed what to do and not to do while in Buenos Aries. As we were set to depart Alana was gracious enough to be flexible with her own schedule to accommodate our departure time. The place was very clean and if we were to go back again we would gladly stay there.

  • Cynthia's apartment was great! The apartment is really really big! There are several AC's so that you can relax after walking around in the hot city. The kitchen offers a lot of space also for cooking which means you can eat at home and therefore save a lot of money. The TV aswell as the Wifi work perfectly. There is actually nothing to complain about. We really liked it!

  • I can't say enough good things about the apartment. Great location; a block from the subway. Beautiful space. Hardwood floors, 2 bathrooms, everything modern and clean in a wonderful old building. Elevator, balcony, a/c and a comfy bed. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Lovely apartment in excellent location!

    This was a perfect location for us - mother, father and a teenage son aged 16. The flat was fantastic and more than fulfilled our expectations. Apart from the spacious bedrooms and plenty of storage space the flat also had two lovely bathrooms in excellent conditions, as well as a terrific open kitchen where we spent several hours. The boys busy on their iPads - the internet is first class, and me busy preparing a light meal.

    While we were, there the outside temperatures were rising to 40C+, but luckily the air-conditioning was working first class, so no problems with the temperatures inside the apartment.

    The area was ever so charming with plenty of small grocery shops offering an impressive selection of fruits and vegetables.

    Getting around is easy as the subway is located only a few minutes away. The popular shopping street Santa Fe, offering a huge variety of tempting shopping, inclusive a Carre Four supermarket, is only eight minutes walk away.

    I could keep on writing for hours about the location and all our amazing walks, cafes and the friendly people we met on our way, but I can see that the space is limited so I'd better stop now :).

    If we were to return to BA we would definitely want to stay in the same flat.

  • We and another couple stayed in Cynthia's flat for the month of November and loved it. The pictures do not do it justice in how large and nice it really is - we especially loved the huge eating and cooking island, the high ceilings, great lighting, wood floors. The bedrooms were good size with adequate storage and both bathrooms were very large, clean and modern. Since we there for tango, having the subway, D line 1 block away and many bus routes was very convenient. El Beso and Porteno Bailarin were walking distance. We loved the bakery on Uriburu Jose E, down the street and around the corner and lounged around every night on the comfy large sofa after late nights at milongas eating their delicious pastries. There is also a den off the dining room that wasn't shown in pictures. We used the dining room for practicing tango. We felt safe in the area and we were just blocks from Recolleta and we could walk downtown. I would recommend this flat to anyone and would love to rent it again. Thanks Cynthia and Alana.

About
My husband and I love to travel. I am Canadian, and he is from Argentina. We have lived abroad and travelled extensively, often exchanging homes or renting apartments for our travels. We have had many many great experiences, especially in Amsterdam, Croatia and Greece. We currently live in the USA and enjoy visiting our second home in Buenos Aires with our two small children. We love our flat in BA and hope other people will get to enjoy it as much as we have. We remodeled it ourselves to include a beautiful open plan kitchen and living room so that we can cook, and entertain friends and family. We always take special care of the places we stay, since we know what it is like to share our home.
