I have to say that my trip to Argentina was amazingly perfect.
I went there with my girlfriend and we happened to stay at this cozy and well located apartment.
The place is exactly the way you see in the pictures.
Catherine is awesome. She's very nice and helpful.
Having introduced us the place, she gave us lots of tips about where to go and do.
We definitely recommend it.
Also, in our next trip to Argentina we'll try to stay there again.
Catherine's place is awesome. You are literally a 5-7min walk from the tienda leon bus station that takes you in and out of EZE airport (50min ride) and the Retiro train station along with other hotspots around Argentina. The room is clean and big enough to fit 2 people reasonably. There is lukewarm water from the shower which is fine. Catherine herself is very attentive to her guest's needs, she highlighted the major spots to go to around buenos aires and even recommended some fantastic restaurants in the surrounding area (my favorites were las nazarenas and la estancia). As far as noise level is concerned, you are in a bustling city so get some earplugs if you are a light sleeper. I myself can sleep through almost anything so that wasn't a problem. Catherine does have a washer, but no dryer, so plan for that. Catherine says the majority of homes in Buenos Aires do not have dryers and that's considered almost a luxury item, so another option would be to take your clothes to the drycleaner. Catherine speaks fluent English and so does her sister, Lela, so communication will most definitely not be a problem with the host. Overall, I rate this 5 stars because not only was the room great and cheap, the host's sister Lela went out of her way to invite me out with her and her friends. It was an excellent bonus because when i travel around the world, i don't want to just pay for a room, i want to pay to be welcomed into a completely new community different from my own. Catherine and her sister provided that for me, and that was very much worth it. Great job girls, keep up the good work.
We had a great time in Orlando. The resort was nice and only 5-10 mins from Disney. The resort was quiet and had plenty of amenities. The laundry door was broken (fixed on the first day), plumbing in the bathtub was really slow (we used a plunger and tried to fixe it ourselves) and toilet was clogged (fixed on the first day). Overall, we are happy with the price we paid and what we got.
Catherine was located outside of the US, so she was not easy to get a hold of. We communicated through email and often took awhile for her to get back to me. Since we had no real urgent issues, it wasn't a big deal with the communication lag. She was very friendly when we did communicate.
La ubicación del apartamento es céntrica e ideal para conseguir buena locomoción. El lugar es tranquilo y con un excelente precio. Además Catherine es muy amable y siempre se ofreció para ayudar en todo lo que hiciera falta.
The apartment is centrally located and has very good locomotion. The place is quiet with a great price. Catherine is also very kind and always offered help in whatever it took.
Catherine foi super atenciosa, nos respondia quase que de imediato todas as mensagens e sempre foi pontual, simpática e bem comunicativa. Excelente a anfitriã. Quanto ao apartamento muito bem localizado, perto de tudo e tudo em perfeitas condições. Indico a todos a se hospedarem nesse apartamento, não é dos maiores nem do mais luxuosos mas atendeu perfeitamente as minhas exigências.
Centrally located clean apartment.
Excelente ubicación, tranquilo y buen tamaño.
La buena disposición,la amabilidad de Catherine y su familia es más que DESTACABLE- Siempre dispuesta a solucionar dudas o a proporcionar enseguida lo que le solicité.
En distintas situaciones demostró una gran una amabilidad y sinceridad poco común.
Yo debí quedarme hasta tarde el día de regreso ami país y ella me dijo que como esa tarde no ingresaba otro huésped pude quedarme hasta la noche.Para culminar mi estadía,ella misma con su mamá me acompañaron con mi grande equipaje a la calle y me acompañaron hasta queme consiguieron un taxi-
El apartamento está en un excelente lugar. Lo encontré muy seguro.
Estuve 9 días, es un apto interior,para mi fue ideal porque así no escuchaba los ruidos de la calle.
Del dormitorio prácticamente no escuchaba a los, ruidos.
Sí se escucha mucho de lo que sería el living y a los vecinos. Digo eso porque otro huésped señaló ese aspecto. Si no duermes ahí NO TE AFECTA,
El apartamento es tal cual las fotos.
Sin duda volveré a hospedarme en un próximo viaje
Catherine is a really great host--she is very attentive and is always willing you help if you have a problem. However, she's also really good about giving you your space. I stayed in the room for a month while I was taking a course in Buenos Aires and it had everything I needed. Noisy during the day because it's centrally located, but not bad at night.
Catherine was an excellent host that went above and beyond! She is easy to to get a hold of as she replies to emails in lightning fast time. She assisted me on obtaining communication and transportation needs by helping set up a SIM card in my phone during my stay and even loaned me a re-loadable Bus/Subte (SUBE) pass card. She loaned me some maps and guidebooks of what to do and see in the city. She spoke perfect English, I still feel a little guilty that I don't know more Spanish than I do. She even followed through on accommodations like extra pillows for my bad back and loaned out a spare sweater when I left mine behind in a Pittsburgh motel a few days prior. Catherine is not in the building at all times, but she is in the neighborhood, but if you truly truly need her she is a call or email away.
The apartment is in a prime location a 10 minute walk west to get to the Obelisco and Teatro Colon, 8 minute walk east to get to Puetro Madero and Buquebus to Uruguay, and a 10 minute walk north to the clock tower and the shuttlebus-direct-to-airport(s) terminal. Grocery stores located within 4 blocks when you get tired of dining out for every meal.
The building has hot water that gets hot instantly, it's a little noisy outside at day with city life, but I'm adapt to city noises so it didn't bother me one bit. Just a fair warning. Kitchen is complete with dishes, pots, utensils, as long you you clean up after yourself, it's fair game. Room and location are exactly as described. The only blemish to my stay is loud noises generated from unlocking, opening, and closing doors at 3:30 in the morning results in waking every person in every room, no matter how many times you practice you're destined to fail. Maybe it was just me.
If I had the means, and hopefully I will within the year, I would definitely stay again.
