Enjoy sunny days and beautiful sunsets from the nicest terrace in Palermo Soho; walking distance from the best restaurants, bars, boutiques, and art galleries in Buenos Aires.
Palermo Soho is the heart of the cultural and artisanal renaissance transforming this bohemian neighborhood into a hub of activity for Argentines and well-informed tourists. Argentines come to this neighborhood for a coffee, for a walk, or just to hang out.
On Saturday mornings, just out the door, there is an incredible farmer’s market where you can find the freshest produce, the best meat, and incredible cheeses. On Saturday afternoons and all day Sunday the park is lined with artisans selling everything from leather goods, independent designer fashion, artwork, jewelry, to antiques.
I personally spent over one year renovating this gorgeous 110 square meter (1100 square feet) loft. I worked hand in hand with the architects and building crews meticulously overseeing every details of the construction. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I will let you be the judge.
The first level reflects my two indulgences: cuisine and music. It includes a fully equipped hi-fi sound system with 42” Panasonic plasma, a DVD player, and cable TV. There are two IPod mini plug connections to play music throughout the house and on the terrace. It also includes high-speed cable Internet with Wi-Fi signal. The newly renovated kitchen comes fully furnished. It is equipped for you to have wine and hors d’oeuvres or if you want to, prepare a full dinner. The first level also includes a toilet.
The second level includes two bedrooms and a full bathroom. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, large mirrored closet, and a split air conditioning unit. The second bedroom has a super queen-sized and a twin bed. It also includes a desk and large closet. There is a second split air conditioning unit on this level.
The crowning jewel of the loft is definitely the terrace. Inspired by Dutch architectural design, the park side of the terrace is lined with eucalyptus wood. The backside of the terrace is the envy of every Argentine who has ever set foot in the house: the parrilla (Argentine charcoal BBQ). The BBQ area is lined with terra cotta ceramic and has its own sink/food preparation area. Between the front and the back of the terrace is an outdoor shower for those hot summer days. The terrace is also connected to the sound system so you can enjoy music while lounging in the sun.

Javier exceeded our expectations. Everything worked - which is a rarity in BA. The rooftop was divine - we had a BBQ and the sound system blew us away - along with our neighbors. We will be coming back!
This was like a dream apartment for us. If only we can live here forever we would! We were so excited right from the moment of booking. When the owner mentioned about the terrace being its crowning jewel I did not hesitate and just went up there directly the
moment we arrived. And God how beautiful and relaxing it was! It was like embracing the entire city being up there. It was awesome. It being in a great location was a major factor too we chose to stay here. It was a vacation we'll always happily recall.
Ficamos hospedados com minha mulher e meus filhos por 4 dias. O bairro não poderia ser melhor e o apto. supero as nossas expectativas. Javier estaba nos aguardando, como chegamos cedo deixamos as malas e saimos para dar uma volta pelo bairro emquanto faziam a limpeza. O apto. é uma graça, tudo equipado e moderno. Os quartos são amplios e bem confortaveis e o terreço é um espetaculo. Fizemos um churrasco maravilhoso e curtimos ate de madrugada. Nota 10 para Javier que sempre se preocupo por que tudo fosse bem e para o apto. que tem detalhes fanasticos. Com certeza, voltaremos!!!!!
This place is great! The owner met us there when we arrived in town. He had the heater on and a bottle of wine set out for us. He showed us around and told us where all the good local amenities were at before giving us his cell phone number so we could call if we needed anything or help finding anything near by. He also offered to come back and do an asado (barbecue) for us on the rooftop deck/grill if we wanted.
We had a great time staying at a place that was in the heart of the city. There are amazing restaurants, art galleries, nightlife, and a park right outside your door. When I go back to Buenos Aires I'm definitely staying here again!
My wife and I, along with our 9 year-old son, had a wonderful three-night stay in this super-cool loft. We were warmly greeted by the owner, welcoming us to his beautiful three-level loft. As we settled in, we quickly felt like local hipsters living in this spacious Palermo home. Surrounded by excellent restaurants and an easy walk to the Subte metro, we felt the location was truly superb. The owner and his wife are delightful people and were very responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommended!
When we arrived at this apartment we were warmly greeted by the new owners (the previous owner who we had the rental contract with had omitted to tell us he had sold it). We stayed at the apartment for two weeks and as frequent visitors we were not new to the area. The area is buzzing with life, cafes, bars and the views from the roof terrace are very pleasant. However, it overlooks a park which is very noisy with barking dogs and very loud drumming and music especially over the weekend. There is a small market on Saturday and Sunday. I want to leave a fair review because I was surprised that previous reviews do not mention the noise which severely affected our sleep quality over the two weeks. So here are the good points and some areas for improvements which I know the new owners are keen to make:
Location is good for exploring the city.
Good pleasant views to the front.
Lively bars and cafes.
Easy access to local supermarket.
The apartment is light and airy with lots of space.
Nice roof terrace with barbecue facilities.
Close to taxi rank and metro.
Cooker and washer useful.
Selection of DVD films.
Areas for improvement:
The kitchen was surprisingly worn and infested with ants which we had just about eliminated by the end of our two week stay.
The bathroom and downstairs toilet were clean with plenty of hot water but the apartment would benefit from a deep clean. Under the beds was filthy with old socks and we had to sweep up the tumble weeds of hair and fluff from the lounge.
The windows are not double glazed and the walls were very thin. The noise on the front overnight especially at the weekend meant it was impossible to sleep. Bin lorries at 3am. Market setting up at weekends at 6am.
On the back a lot of noise from parties in the garden of an adjacent apartment and a lot of noise from building work.
The two bedrooms are not very private, with only a blind separating them from the landing so if you are not very close to your friends it might not give enough privacy.
The kitchen is well equipped with gadgets e.g. coffee maker, blender, juicer but didn't have cereal bowls. The crockery all needs replacing.
Advertises cable TV but the owner couldn't make it work and didn't get back to us over the two weeks to get it working so we had no TV.
