Great location. Ricardo was responsive to our questions and concerned our stay was comfortable.
Safe, comfortable, and clean. Lot of traffic noise during the day. Bed was comfortable. Great location. Not fancy but adequate.
The apartment is close to grocery stores, restaurants, and easy taxi and bus transportation. Air conditioned bedrooms. Bring your own hairs dryer. Good WiFi access. Lots of space. Elevator is small but fast to the 3rd floor. We stayed 7 nights and would recommend it.
Apartament are in very good location, cozy and well furnitured.
Rooms were precise clean, no noises from outside.
Ricardo was great with communication, very friendly and thoughtfull.
I would definitely recommend it to my family and friends!
Thank you Simona for your kind words and I'm glad you enjoyed it the apartment!
You are very welcome anytime!
Fantastic BA Apartment
We have stayed in two other apartments in San Telmo, but since discovering this treasure, we have had three wonderful stays in a row. We are frequent travellers to BA, and wouldn't dream of staying elsewhere.
Ricardo has been the most attentive owner we have ever encountered in our many apartment stays in Europe and South America. Clean, super location, and a very well equipped kitchen. We hosted a dinner party during our last stay, and comfortably cooked a three course dinner in the large kitchen. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area, as well as, a huge take out parilla (bbq) next door. A.C. works well, and the two elevators are quite quick, with almost no wait.
Thank you so much Christopher for your kind words is always a pleasure to have such a appreciative and happy people in my place , i will see you in juanuary and in the main time have a great rest of the year and we'll keep in touch.
San Telmo Apartment: Not Our Best Experience
We stayed in this apartment for six nights in March. We love the San Telmo neighborhood and have stayed in the area once before. The owner, Ricardo, is quite nice and speaks fluent English. The apartment is fairly large and has beautifully polished floors.
However, it is situated on Peru Street which is extremely noisy at all times of the day and night. We like to keep windows open. If you don't mind closing the windows and balcony door, it won't be a problem. The balcony is quite long and has a table with several chairs.
The linens were quite dingy and grey with use--there was some confusion with the cleaning staff who put old sheets on the bed that were extremely thin and had lost their elasticity to hold on to the mattress. The owner finally did supply new sheets for the master bedroom. The bed itself is quite squishy and my husband prefers a firm mattress, so he slept in the second bedroom. This room has two single beds. We informed the owner that they needed mattress pads.
Be aware that the shower in the second bathroom is merely a shower head coming out of the wall of the tiny bathroom itself. It would be extremely difficult to use.
The kitchen needs a good scubbing, particularly the insides of the cabinets as well as all the glass objects and other decor.
It was difficult to see in the pictures the exact furniture in the apartment. We could not find anywhere to sit in the living area. There is a single mattress covered in faux leather, a strange orange bucket chair, and a kind of reclining deck chair. The dining table, however, is large enought to seat six people.
The apartment is near Plaza Dorrego and other tourist sites in the San Telmo neighborhood.
Location - Location - Location
Location is a huge thing when traveling and this apartment is perfect. The Pope's BBQ is next door, with great chicken ($5.00 US for 1/2), the ribs were fatty, but taste great. The market is a block away with great vegetables, several closeby convenience stores supply everything else needed. The apartment is basic, but has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We enjoyed the balcony and spent most mornings there enjoying the sun, and evenings with a glass of wine.The one downside is the noise. The school kids don't have much room to burn energy and have high walls on two sides for the noise to echo off of. The trucks, busses and motorcycles are numerous and the garbage pick up in the early hours is bound to wake you up.
Thank you for your review I understand the fact that you say the area is noisy , is a normal city noise and you bound to have it in any part of the city, the garbage collectors they are everywhere in the city maybe a big city is not for you.
Regarding the flat I canot decorate or change furniture for every person who think I should have certain type of chair , sofa or color paint! The flat Is as the pictures shows no more no less, there is nothing deceiving or basic about the flat. Good luck and enjoy the rest of your trip.
Great Apartment Great Location
This is a very large, well equipped, air conditioned apartment, located in a very safe part of San Telmo. Just below the apartment is a take away Parilla with a huge grill. Excellently prepared beef, pork , chicken and salads, all at very reasonable prices. You are also only 2 blocks from 2 wine stores, San Telmo Market, a bakery, and a fresh pasta store.
The only negative, and this didn't bother us greatly, is that it could use a new bed. Might be a problem if you had a bad back.
We spent a lot of time on the long balcony taking in the dailey life unfolding 3 floors below.
We will be back next year.
Thank you Chris for your kind words! The thing with the main bedroom mattress is that's a newone but is not that soft I guess diferent people have diferent taste when they order a new mattress it has less than a year ! Let's keep in touch, till next year!
All the best.
Known for its colonial style, this is a neighborhood of narrow cobblestone streets lined with buildings that retain their historical charm. On Sundays from 10:00am to 5:00pm, visitors will find the “Feria de San Pedro” art fair at Plaza Dorrego, where antiques and regional articles are sold. Oftentimes it is also possible to see live street tangos in the plaza. Around the plaza, there are several cafes, bars, and restaurants, antique shops, and theater schools.
