Hi! I´m Belén. I´m a cook, working in Palermo. 28 years old.
I like bikes and I´ve been living in Buenos Aires for the past ten years, so I know a variety of very cool places to visit.
Belén and Lu were great hosts! The room in the apartment, while not all that private, is adorable and very cozy; perfect for a single traveller! Plus the location is amazing! Blocks from a million great restaurants and just a short walk to the Subte and to Palermo Soho with tons of shopping. The neighborhood is super safe and very peaceful and quiet. I would definitely recommend Belén's place!
This apartment is really beautiful!!!! Belen is a great person who enriches your stay with helpful recommends about Buenos Aires and Argentina – also apart from a touristic point of view –, really good food (try the empanadas!!) and with very good discussions. Here you really get to know argentinian people and life. Moreover it´s a place full of respect and you are in the middle of everything, in the heart of Palermo with an easy access to downtown.
I highly recommend this apartment! For me it was the best place to stay in Buenos Aires and I am very happy that I had the chance to get to know to this place, Belen and Michi, the sometimes crazy but lovely cat. I surely come back :-)
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I expect apartments to be accurately advertised. If your bathroom ceiling and tile grout is covered in a layer of mold, it might be something to mention. As there's no window or ventilation in the room, it's more the landlord/construction's fault than anything, but there is no way this can be taken for a negligible amount. I have a strong allergy to mold, so this oversight marred my stay. There was also no Cable TV available, which was no problem for me but is also not properly represented in this listing.
Since I couldn't risk to lengthen my exposure, I had to make my time in the apartment as brief as possible, but it is a pleasant place to stay. Nicely decorated and well-equipped, although you might be able to get something with a double bed and closed-off room for the same price. The location is also good: close to a subway station in one direction and bars/restaurants in the other. Also near some grocery stores.
Other than the false advertisement, I didn't have any problems with Belen as a host and it's a great place to stay, as long as you don't have any mold allergies. (I cleaned it with bleach but with the bathroom's construction I'm sure it'll be back.) Oh, and if she tells you “This is for you,” gives you a Subte card, and doesn't ask for it back – be aware it is not for you! You can get one at any post office for AR 15$ (~2.50 U$D)
Lo pasé muy bien en el departamento de Belén y recomendaría a cualquier persona que queden en su piso! El piso tiene mucho carácter, y es perfectamente ubicado cerca de transporte y todo lo bueno de Palermo. Durmé muy bien porque la habitación esta muy tranquilo, y Belén me hizo sentirme muy comoda allí. Tambien, tiene un sentido de humor fantástico y disfruté mucho nuestras charlas al fin de trabajo cada día. Yo estuve allí dos semanas y podría haberme quedado mucho mas tiempo.
En ingés - Belén is amazing and her flat is really cosy and full of quirky and interesting things. I felt very at home there and she was enormously welcoming right from the beginning. My work was a bit stressful at times and it was great to come back to a friendly face and be able to have a laugh with a great flatmate. Michi the cat is a marvel - I´m not a cat person but even I fell in love with Michi!
Belen's place is great. It's super cute/interesting and she takes great care in keeping the place clean. There's a beautiful balcony where you can enjoy the sun and neighborhood and there's fast wifi all throughout the place. The location of the apartment in palermo is perfect. It's right between the subte and restaurants of palermo hollywood, but is far enough from the noise and crowd. The neighborhood is safe and convenient and I would totally stay with Belen again on my next trip to (website hidden).
My stay at Belen's home couldn't have been better ! Everything was perfect. The house is clean, the decoration is very nice, the neighborhood is great (with everything you could need from a supermarket to the best places to go out). And above all, Belen is an exceptional hostess. She is always here to help you or to have good times with you. You feel independent, as if you were in your own home, but you also know that you can count in a very generous person, with a great sense of humor, very interesting personnality and with whom you will discover the best sides of Buenos Aires. Belen, thank you a lot, now I can say I have an Argentinian friend !
Mi estancia en lo de Belen no podría haber sido mejor. Todo era perfecto. La casa de Belen es limpia, la decoracion es linda, el barrio es ideal para vivir, con todo lo que puedan necesitar (desde lo practico hasta lo mejor para salir). Y sobre todo, Belen es una huesped excepcional. Siempre esta aqui cuando necesitan algo o para compartir un buen (website hidden) sienten independiente, como en su propria casa, pero tambien saben que pueden contar en una persona generosa, divertida, interesante y con quien podrian descubrir la mejor cara de Buenos Aires. Belen, muchas gracias a vos, ahora puedo decir que tengo una amiga argentina !
Belen was a great host! She was very helpful and friendly during my stay and I felt right at home in her apartment. It is very clean, comfortable and has everything you will need. The location is great - being close to many bars, restaurants and shops, but also not too noisy or crowded - Palermo is one of the best places to stay, in my opinion. I highly recommend staying here!
I have had a lovely time in Buenos Aires at this place. The neighborhood is wonderful and really quiet. The apartment is not very big but it's cosy. Belen Is a Wonderful host, it's nice and tidy.
I would definitely come back!
I would highly recommend Belen's apartment. It is a clean and bright place, with lots of character. It was so central I was able to walk to many places of interest and felt completely safe. I was made to feel more like a friend than a paying guest.
Belén is a natural host. Her house is one of the loveliest I've been in Buenos Aires. Warm, clean, so clean, and decorated with love and taste. The house is quiet, sunny and located in a great and safe part of the city. Belen is respectful of prívate moments and available to chat when you need it. Becouse of her job as a cook, she knows a lot of great places in Buenos Aires. I highly recomend Belén and her place for everyone who needs a place to stay here.
