Im from Argentina, I love travel around the world and I have 5 apartments in Buenos Aires to rent...so I'll be waiting for your visit.
Maria is a wonderful host. The apartment is clean, spacious, and has everything you need. Maria was gracious enough to provide me with information on the neighborhood and the city at large when I first arrived in Buenos Aires. She is always available via email or phone to address any questions that I have, and the woman who comes to clean the apartment weekly is lovely! The apartment is situated in an ideal location, right at the heart of the city, and close to various neighborhoods and methods of transportation. It has been a pleasure staying in this apartment and I highly recommend it. Thank you, Maria!
Maria es un host fantástica. El departamento es limpio, espacioso, y tiene todo lo que necesita. Maria es muy amable y me dio información sobre el barrio y la ciudad en general cuando llegué por primera vez en Buenos Aires. Ella siempre está disponible por correo electrónico o teléfono para resolver cualquier duda que tengo, y la mujer que viene a limpiar el departamento cada semana es una maravilla! El apartamento está situado en un sitio ideal, en el corazón de la ciudad, y cerca de varios barrios y todos los métodos de transporte (subte y micro). Ha sido un placer de quedarme en este departamento y lo recomiendo. Gracias, Maria!
Response from Maria:
Gracias Sophia! Un placer para mi hospedarte. Que disfrutes mucho la ciudad. Un beso!
Nice, modern and clean apartment! Bed is comfy, AC is powerful, kitchen is equipped with a huge fridge, an oven with stove, a microwave and some cutlery. The bathroom is great and GREEN, with a huge shower, toilett, basin and a window. Everything is very clean and will be cleaned once in the week. Most important - next to the Facultad de Medicina the apartment is very well situated concerning to public transportation. Maria is available via e-mail at every time and she responds very fast. There is an iron, a TV, DVD player, free Wifi, a lot socket outlets and cupboards.
What's not so good:
No coffee machine, walls are very thin and neighbors are loud, windows are leaky/ not tight enough to keep the cold and noise outside, in autumn is getting already a bit cold
Es un apartamento muy lindo, con una excelente ubicación, con una atención personalizada de la dueña, muy preocupada de todo. Absolutamente recomendable. Fue una excelente estadía en un hermoso apartamento.
Julieta se mostro muy atenta y el departamento es muy recomendable.
+ Nice location (and good connections), quiet, has all you need, clean, good value for price
- no view out of the window, not much equipment in the kitchen, not much charm
There were two single beds in the backroom, very soft but surprisingly comfortable, one bed in the living room, quite hard but also surprisingly comfy! there is a microwave and a gas stove in the kitchen as well as the basic kitchen stuff (2 pans and a pot, plates, cutlery...). The view is aweful but its quiet at night. I think AC did not work, I tried to turn it on but we did not really need it anyway.
Response from Maria:
Tks Jann, the air conditioner is working, the problem was a battery low into the remote control. Tks for your visit! Bye
Beware of Maria!!
Our stay in this apartment and dealing with Maria was an absolute nightmare from the very beginning. When we requested to book the apartment via Airbnb at the posted price of approx. $850, Maria said this would be fine when we met her in person. She then waited until 11pm at night the night before we moved in to reject the offer and instead gave us a "special" price which was $150 more expensive. We had no choice but to take it, as staying another night in a hotel and trying to find an alternative would have been more expensive.
When we met Maria to move into the apartment, she told us that the maid would come once a week and clean our sheets and towels. Not only did the maid not come once a week (we were there five weeks and she came three times) she also did a horrendous job of cleaning the apartment and didn't do the sheets or towels. This ended up costing us at least another $100 to wash our towels and sheets once a week as there was no washing machine in the building.
The apartment itself was dirty everywhere. It was clearly not properly cleaned when we first moved in as everything in the kitchen felt greasy and you could see piles of dirt beside the fridge and oven (which the maid never cleaned up). The sheets for the bed were extremely old and didn't fit the bed properly so you basically slept on the mattress because the sheets came undone from the corners each night. The Calefon (which heats the water) didn't work properly. The water in the shower was either scalding hot or freezing cold. The apartment isn't fully equipped either. It doesn't have such basic things as a can opener or scissors (try living five weeks without either of those!).
The air conditioner broke on the day before Xmas when it was 44 degrees outside. We contacted Maria and she told us to contact someone else. We felt this wasn't our job. No one came to fix it for four days and when they finally did come, they were very rude and expressed anger that we had put the AC on a too low temperature. It gets extremely hot in BA in the summer and you NEED an air conditioner.
When we finally went to move out, Maria requested that we meet at 11am or 12 noon. We emailed her back and told her 12. She never responded. Two complete strangers to us showed up at 12:30 on move out day to retrieve the keys from us. Maria never informed us who would be picking up the keys so it was a very uncomfortable situation. On top of that, we had to spend the whole morning cleaning the apartment because the maid didn't show up the day before to clean it even though she was supposed to.
We do not recommend staying with Maria.
Sleek, stylish, contemporary accommodations with easy access to sundeck and pool just a short elevator ride away. Located in a posh neighborhood offering convenient services, nifty shopping, top tourist sites and friendly portenos. Attentive, accessible hostess.
Me encantó el departamento, y Julieta fue muy amable conmigo en todo momento. Lo recomiendo completamente.
Recibimiento espectacular por parte de la Anfitriona, un depto. muy comodo, con todo lo que se necesita para tener una estadia sin contratiempos, me permito recomendarlo a otros interesados,
Muchas gracias por la atencion
They were great guests! completely recommend both of them!
Maria is very nice, I met her in Buenos Aires where she showed me some of her appartments. I recommand you to contact her, she can offer you several options, depending of what you're searching. She is very communicative and she knows a lots of things about the city.
