Our group of three business men enjoyed an amazing 10 days from 30 August to 8 September. Janet could not have been more accommodating to our schedule and so very helpful in getting arrangements and details worked out. The place was everything that was promised and more. So many thoughtful details (110 volt, washer and dryer, larger refrigerator, dish washer, lots of hot water, wiFi, Vonage to call clients and home etc.). The location is fantastic to get to transportation as well as the market (Quilmes 6.9, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables), amazing food, beverages, coffee etc. etc. are all around. The balcony is a great perch to sit and watch the goings on of the neighborhood each evening after our days of travel throughout BA. It was always our location to enjoy appetizers before going out (sociably late) for dinner at local restaurants eating the best rib eye ever and drinking the best red wines and visiting with locals.
And the added bonus is of course Ruben. We had him fix a meal for us one night and take us to the best steak house in town on another. To be honest, Ruben beat the steakhouse for the most amazing meal. The combination of a meal never to be forgotten and his remarkable knowledge of South America makes for evenings of lively conversation and a much greater depth to your travel experience. Don’t miss the opportunity to have at least one private dinner by Ruben and do it early in your stay because you will likely want to do it again. Ruben steered us to the best leather shops to get gifts for our wives (the European leather in the best shops is amazing and resulted in many smiles upon our return). Also the places for empanadas, pasta and even travel to Colonia (and what to look for while there). He also was incredibly helpful with money exchange (best rates anywhere).
In short the combination of a great place to stay, exceptional personal assistance and the current exchange rate made for the most amazing stay. We’ll be back with family and friends in the future!
