Guestbook comments from the owner
We hope you will enjoy our Buenos Aires home. After exploring the city for seven months spread over three years, we decided on this beautiful apartment in the sought-after Alto Palermo/Botanico neighborhood. We have recently given new gloss to the classic bones of the place. New paint, appliances, beds, furniture and design touches all make the apartment feel like your home away from home. High speed Internet access with Wi-Fi allow you to use laptop computers anywhere in the apartment.
And on many days the apartment and neighboring streets feel like an oasis from the heat and commotion of much of the Argentine capital though they are so very close to many of Buenos Aires' touristic, entertainment, cultural and shopping options.
Have a great time in Buenos Aires!
