My wife and I (both 60+ years of age and experienced travellers) spent 5 wonderful days in this well maintained, well designed and spotlessly clean apartment. At the termination of a hectic 6 week journey through South America, this was a welcome place in which to relax in comfort, do a bit of self catering and to see many of the lovely sights of BA before departing for home.
The compact kitchen has all the necessary high quality mod cons to enable one to prepare meals...with a well stocked supermarket within easy walking distance.
The bathroom (shower and bath) is well stocked with essentials; is spacious and met our needs very well.
A lovely, large, quality bed and linen....leads onto a cute balcony on which to take coffee and watch the world rush by down below. And if it gets too hot outside; the aircon works most efficiently and quietly.
The apartment is in a safe area..we often walked home after dark without concern. It is accessible to transport (both buss and metro).
Security and access control is very good and there is also a fair sized electronic room safe.
I also recommend that you use the private driver (with whom they have an arrangement) to take you to the airport. Traffic can be horrendous at times and a good driver who arrives promptly and knows his way around the city, will get you there on time and for an upfront, fixed fee.
In essence, what the website stated when making our booking..is exactly what we found to be the case. Except, we also found a great host in the owner Alejandro (a professional architect) and his assistant, Gaston. Both met us personally (upon arrival and departure respectively); took care of some serious personal difficulties that we had and generally offered themselves to assist us in any way that they could to make our stay in the apartment and BA; a memorable one. The personal touch is so important to weary travellers...and they immediately struck the right cord with us.
Thanks Guys….you both went out of your way for us in that respect.
