BOOKING & ARRIVAL
We visited BA for the last two weeks of July and stayed in this lovely studio apartment. Let me start by saying that the owner, Liliana, was great - responsive and accommodating to our requests - she even arranged for our airport transport. José Antonio was waiting for us outside of baggage claim as promised and he arrived right on time to take us back to the airport.
Hector was there when we arrived to check us in and show us the apartment and building amenities. He was very nice and attentive throughout our stay - called us on the mobile phone provided to ensure we weren't in need of anything. He arrived at the agreed time when the day came for us to leave and promptly returned our damage deposit upon satisfactory inspection of the apartment.
The apartment is a generously sized studio with modern finishes that looks exactly as it does in the photos. Everything worked as expected. The bed is a true queen size with a comfortable mattress. Extra linens are provided. As someone with allergies, I appreciate that the apartment is both smoke and pet-free. It's on the first floor (elevators available) with a wall of windows facing the street which brings in so much natural daylight. There are blackout shades that help darken the room at night and provide privacy.
It's in a great location of the city - right in the heart of Palermo - and we were able to walk almost everywhere. BA Zoo, Japanese Gardens, MALBA, Recoleta Cemetary, Museo de Bellas Artes, Plaza Francia (don't miss the weekend markets) are all just 10-15 minutes walk away. There are several good restaurants within walking distance too. I recommend "Dandy" on the corner of Avenida del Libertador & San Martin de Tours - open throughout the day for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Several supermarkets nearby (closest one is around the corner) and a large Carrefour within a 10-min walk off Avenida Figueroa Alcorta & Salguero. Drop-off laundromat available around the corner was convenient and inexpensive. It was great not having to spend precious vacation time doing laundry.
We had an amazing stay in BA and wouldn't hesitate to rent this apartment again. I've already recommended it to my friends looking to visit Buenos Aires.
