For those couples or families whose curiosity inspires them to discover Buenos Aires in its intimacy, we offer superb and well-equipped accommodation in safe & touristy San Telmo, the historic old town, a bohemian and trendy part of Buenos Aires with its Antique Galleries, Tango ambiance and Modern Art in nearby Puerto Madero. To sleep and shower of course, but also to take a break during your daily visits, to read books, listen to music, watch a movie. In a nutshell, to live 'la vida porteña' comfortably and charmfully
It is a 130m2 large apartment, with almost 4m-high ceilings, like in the old days, on the 3rd floor (with elevator) of an early 20th-century building where the British managers of the South Railways lived; it has been completely refurbished with an exquisite blend of the original and modern styles. It is located on Caseros Avenue, a very elegant spot in this charming neighbourhood. On the same block, a New-York style café-bar, 2 nice gourmet bistrots (of which one is vegetarian), a popular argentine restaurant and a trendy café will provide you with five nice options for a relaxing moment
(if you are a large family group, we have 30 metres away on the same block, a second apartment also listed on airbnb which accommodates up to 6 people, thus 11 in total; please enquire)
You will be able to enjoy the following facilities:
3 Bedrooms, sleeping 5 in total (definitely no extra persons allowed, it is not a hostel), all at the back of the apartment, thus ignoring any occasional street noise, which anyway goes quiet at night
2 classy Bathrooms
Fully furnished American-style Kitchen
Dining Room with balcony
Living Room with cable-TV, fast internet and large working desk on one end
Laundry (washing machine and dryer)
Smoke-free environment, no pets allowed; unfortunately not suitable for disabled persons
Located very close to the City Centre and the "9 de Julio" avenue, BA's main artery, at walking distance from Puerto Madero (800m), and very easy to access from both airports and the harbour. But plenty to see in San Telmo! As Andrea, a guest from Virginia (USA) put it: "San Telmo has so much to offer it's been hard to break away from this part of the city!"
Check-in and Check-out times are agreed beforehand and take place between 9am and 1pm. Please indicate your flight details and arrival & departure times as well as the composition of your family group when enquiring or requesting a reservation
The "cleaning fee" included in your airbnb reservation is in fact a fixed fee that accounts for the apartment's one-off standard cleaning, one-off sheets and towels washing & drying and one-off bed-making after the guests leave the apartment, plus the check-in and check-out processes and the purchase of welcome accessories that are so much appreciated by our guests
A washing&drying machine is available for you to clean your clothes, linen and towels
One of our more recent guests made a nice summary of their experience with us: "We were really quite spoiled by both the apartment and the care put into the accommodations and little details -phrase book, cell phone, maps, wine, treats, etc. -"
You will surely enjoy staying at our place!
The bohemian feel, the cradle of tango, the street art, the museums, the cafés, the antique shops, the cobblestone streets, the old buildings' façades, the trendy impulse that wishes to recover the spirit when the city was a town
And the proximity to Puerto Madero, the most modern, large and fashionable urban development of Argentina, on the Plata riverside
Other things to note
We would like to stress that Check-in and Check-out times are agreed beforehand and always take place between 9am and 1pm unless a special arrangement has been agreed in writing by us on homeaway's message thread. We stress and urge you to bear this in mind when making your travel arrangements!
