I have worked in the airline industry for the past 31 years travelling overseas every 7-10 days. My expectations for accommodation and the price you pay for it are well measured by the countries I have travelled to. You will not be disappointed with the facilities on hand in this apartment.

Technically I live in Sydney Australia but travel constantly. I think it is fair to say I have an idea of services and appointments required for the regular traveller without having to pay through the nose for it. I hate that. If you do too then give it a go and register your interest and someone will get back to you. Concerned about renting online? I am too so do what I do and check the testimonials...it always helps with reassurance and gives an insight to expectations meet.. I am contactable by cell phone. You must ask if you want my number as I change sim cards to suit the country I am visiting....or I can skype you or you can skype me.

Lyn Latella purchased this apartment in 2006

I have always wanted to spend more time in South America and the opportunity arose after a four day visit. The idea of spending vacation time in South America but having to fly back to Australia all the time for work led me to the decision to purchase my own apartment in BA which would mean when I retired I could come back and visit on a permanant basis.

The proximity to the thearters, musemus, Tango Studios, and Sport facilities at a cost everyone can afford makes this city alive and active. Bars and restaurants abound of every street corner again at an affordable price for high quality services.

We loved the wonderful space of the apartment and the nice updates in the bathroom. The ambiance of the old building added to the atmosphere. All the amenities were available even to the smallest details.

AWESOME STAY

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is very comfortable and very well located in the heart of BA. It is walking distance to the main attractions of downtown or within an easy taxi or combi ride.
The apartment is nicely furnished within an elegant French building, with good security and a very obliging caretaker.
Home away from home!

COMFORTABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
The apartament is located in the centre of Buenos Aires inside a very old building. I recomend this apartment for its comfort and central location. The description and the photos give you a very accurate perspective of the apartment. The owners were kind and helpful and i recomend it to anyone traveling to Buenos Aires to vacation. I forget how restricted one can be when going out for dinner. If you are vegetarian or celliac you will have problems finding a place to eat. Argentinians eat a lot of cow meat pasta and potatoes.

Owner's Response: Thanks Charlotte. Your comments about the food is so true. Personally, as an Italian, i gotta have pasta just about everyday. I cook it a thousand different sauces...the meat once a week is enough...but what great meat it is.
Vegetarians or Celliac's do have difficulty dealing with this when you go out , they are improving though and sprining up here and there.... i sympathize...but then again in this apt you have all the utensils and amenities to eat in.
best regards

All features that we used were as described: Central location, very well equipped, relatively large apartment in a nice well-managed building, clean, etc. We had a small problem when we arrived but it was immediately solved by the very friendly and effective receptionists and when we communicated with Giacomo, he immediately suggested a phone call to discuss details.

We highly recommend this apartment.

LIKE A EUROPEAN VACATION, WITHOUT THE EURO... LIFE IN BUENOS AIRES THE "OLD" WAY...

Like a European vacation, without the Euro... Life in Buenos Aires the "old" way...
  • 5 of 5
Solo traveler spent six nights living an average porteño life in central Buenos Aires. The grocery stores, coffee shops, steak dinners and nightlife are all at your fingertips. The apartment itself is not only 100% provisioned, but is a statement in style and comfort. Modern enhancements (like the air conditioing & entertainment system) don't take away from this wonderfully restored old parisian style apartment. I loved the king size bed and closet space for my clothes. I'm not so critical about bathrooms and related, but channeling my ex-wife...I'm pretty sure she would have loved it (counter space, water pressure, and lots of light). The neighborhood is, shall I say..."authentic". The narrow streets, crush of pedestrian, bike and auto traffic during peak periods...gives you plenty to absorb while wandering to the subway, Florida Ave or a caferteria. In addition, working with the Latellas was a pleasure and will gladly rent again next time I return to Buenos Aires.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Brian. Like you my wife and I travel regularly and we love to experience the 'local' aspects on offer and we are glad you found it here. That you loved the Parisian style of the apartment & quality of provisions confirms our belief that people like the idea of 'options' even though they might not want to take advantage of them.

SUMMER STAY IN BUENOS AIRES - 12TH FEB TO 7TH MARCH, 2011

  • 5 of 5
This was my first visit to South America and B.A. and this apartment really made my stay so lovely. It is elegant and beautifully kept and also well equipped. I met the owner Giacomo in Sydney before I flew over, and he was so pleasant, helpful, informative and honest to deal with. The apartment is very central to so many places, and I enjoyed walking to galleries, attractions and performances - especially with shady parks en route and lovely architecture to look at. I felt very secure in this place and returning at night felt safer than at home in Sydney! I stayed almost 4 weeks, and it was wonderful to have a base there - I just shut the door and went to Iguasu Falls for a couple of days, coming back to this home away from home ready to resume my exploration of this city.

I can really recommend the Tango shows at the Borges Cultural Centre - just a walk away, and a fraction of the price of the big price tourist shows! An Argentinian couple, whom I met at a restaurant table next to mine, told me that's where they go. There are amazing art galleries and museums around B.A. - many within walking distance, and the others only an inexpensive taxi ride away. The concierge will recommend which taxi company to call. There are so many good restaurants around B.A., and the custom is to arrive (very!) late like the locals. So it was good to have the well-equipped kitchen for some self home cooking - for the nights when I felt like relaxing over dinner earlier in the evening with a glass of good Mendoza wine.

I hope to return to B.A. one day, and I will certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Mary J. The appreciation was mutual. I well understand the importance of feeling comfortable with stated aspects of apartments clients inquire about and I'm glad to hear you found everything to be as described.
