'Palermo Soho is a small area of Palermo Viejo... it is a newly fashionable area for fashion, design, restaurants, bars and street culture. The atmosphere in many cafés and restaurants strives to be alternative, which makes this area of the city especially popular with young, upper-middle class Argentines as well as foreign tourists... The traditional low houses have been adapted into boutiques and bars, creating a bohemian feel'. This is what Wikipedia says.

Megan & Ed purchased this apartment in 2007
Buenos Aires has been called the 'Paris of South America'. Within this beautiful city, we especially like Palermo Soho. After exploring different neighborhoods - San Telmo, Recoleta, etc., Palermo Soho was where we most wanted to purchase an apartment. It has lovely streets, lined with trees; very pretty, architecturally interesting buildings; and a vibrant local scene: terrific restaurants of all kinds, fun boutiques, clubs, parks...Muy simpatico!
We want to ensure a wonderful visit.
1. Each time we visit, we upgrade the apartment. The most recent upgrade is the 'solarium'. You can see in the photos how beautiful it is!
2. WHEN YOU DECIDE TO RENT WITH US, we will send you via email a neighborhood guide, which includes useful contacts including a car service owned by an American (who can pick you up at the airport), and a tango instructor (fluent in 3 languages) !
3. A major benefit of our apartment is RELAXATION! We've created a space that is relaxing, calming, yet with modern conveniences (eg wifi). Ours is the top unit. It has complete privacy, and is quiet. The bedroom opens on to a solarium (sun room),which opens onto the terraza, where you can sit under the jasmine, or sunbathe, or enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of Malbec wine in the evening. Yet we are only a couple blocks away from all that Palermo has to offer.
4. Our manager Pablo is wonderful: fluent in Spanish and English, extremely helpful to our guests.
We loved the location, which is in walking distance of interesting neighborhoods, restaurants, and tango halls or milongas. The apartment is airy and roomy, and provided a great respite when needed from the Buenos Aires business and heat. The roof garden is wonderful. We prepared food several times and found the kitchen was adequate. The owners and managers were responsive and helpful, providing support and excellent information about the neighborhood. It's also well-located to use public transportation - about a 15 minute walk from the SUBTE underground, which is certainly the fastest way to get about the city. I would definitely recommend this apartment!
My husband and I stayed here for a week and it worked out really great. The owners and managers were easy to work with, and the local manager was so helpful. He met us at the apartment when we arrived and changed money for us. The location of the apartment is incredibly convenient to all the restaurants, bars and shopping in Palermo but is on a quiet street in a secure building. It was pretty hot the week we were there, so we appreciated the good A/C. It was so great to have WiFi, also. It was a very comfortable place to stay at a very reasonable price.
We had a fantastic 14 nights in this apartment. Let me start by saying how kind, patient and flexible the owners and managers of the place are. We are in the airline industry, travel all over the world and have to be extremely flexible as we fly standy. We booked and could not make the flights we had planned and actually got there almost a week later than planned. They were so nice to us and accommodated us for the days we paid for and then helped us move to another apartment for the days they had already booked for other guests. The owners also provide great information about Buenos Aires in a folder in the apartment as well as numberous guidebooks in their library.
We arrived 6 hours late at 2 am (thanks Aerolineas...) but the apartment manager was waiting for us after getting dropped off by a driver the owners suggested. Check in was perfect.
Apartment photos and descriptions were accurate with the exception that the lower floor is actually much larger than what the photos suggest... a very good thing. The top floor is cozy with the solarium and terrace being a great place to read, do emails and relax with a glass of wine. The kitchen is well equiped but who really cooks when you have Palermo Soho around you....
Nightlife and restaurants start within blocks but it is nice being several blocks away from the all-night bar/restaurant scene.
Transportation couldn't be less expensive or convenient. We had the bus system wired within a day (Omnilineas.com). The metro is a long walk but just take the buses that come every 2 minutes and go! Buy a Sube card at the kiosko, load up 50 pesos and you have a week's worth of travel all over town.
The apartment is secure, large, well appointed and well designed. The only negatives are:
The bathroom is on the bottom floor up front and the bedroom is on the top floor...
The wood stairs are rather steep and slippery... grip tape would help...
I'd like to thank the owners for sharing such a great place and their obvious passion for Buenos Aires!
My wife and I stayed at the apartment for 6 nights on our honeymoon in BA. Everything about our stay was excellent. The owners were responsive from the time of booking up to our arrival. They provide a great guidebook with recommendations on where to eat, shop, how to get around, everything you'll need to get by. The local agents spoke English very will. Pablo was waiting for us when we arrived, despite a 12hr flight delay. The apartment is blocks away from Plaza Serrano and an endless number of restaurants, and shops. It was very clean and safe. We loved the solarium, especially while enjoying coffee and breakfast on rainy mornings. We'll definitely stay again during our next visit if it's available.
Everything about our rental was wonderful all the way from the initial reservation details with Megan and Edward, to meeting Pablo at the apartment. Relaxing on the apartment terrace was such pleasure every evening. We loved the neighborhood for walking around and the convenience of the food shops. We would return tomorrow if we could.
We stayed at this property for 5 weeks and found the overall experience was even better than we had hoped. In real life, the condo was even more spacious than we expected (based on the photos). As promised, it was fully equipped with everything you could ask for and the weekly maid service made life so easy.
The location meant we had easy access to activities, restaurants, shops and sight seeing. The bonus was that despite being close to a major intersection, it was an incredibly quiet unit. Being on the top floor, the roof top deck/sun room provided the perfect place to start the day with a good book, coffee and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. It also provided a spectacular view of an electrical storm we had one night.
Because our flight had been delayed, we had one small glitch getting access. The good news is we were able to email the owners, while our taxi driver phoned the local management company - it felt long at the time, but it was probably all resolved in about half an hour.
We found the owners professional, patient (with all our questions) and extremely easy to deal with. I highly recommend this property and would definitely want to stay there again should we return to BA.
