The stunning marble, glass and brass lobby sets the tone for quiet and comfort in this apartment suite hotel. Smack dab in the middle of Buenos Aires on the edge of the Retiro neighborhood you are one block from the widest street in the world, Nuevo de Julio, and a stone's throw from the the newly renovated Teatro Colon and nearby Obelisk. Buses and taxis are just outside your door and a metro station is two blocks away.
With all this activity I was surprised to find this to be perhaps the most quiet apartment in Buenos Aires. Sure, being on the 11th floor might help, but this thoughtfully remodeled building features not double windows, but double walls. You can enjoy your views of the neighboring cupolas* in peace as you sip your Malbec and drink in the stunning view.
A worldly traveler once shared with me his needs for an enjoyable stay; a quite apartment with a comfortable bed. This apartment has both--find a king bed in the master bedroom and full size twin beds in the second bedroom. Between the location, the quite atmosphere and the comfortable bedding this apartment is one of the finest apartments in Buenos Aires.
This is the perfect location to 'chill out' after shopping or exploring the city, being just two blocks from the subway. The newly opened Suipacha Pedestrian Mall starts outside your door, filled with pedestrian life, performers, venders, dining, shopping and more. The very exclusive Alear Art Hotel is two doors away. You will walk past the Four Seasons Hotel, Avenida Alvear and Santa Fe Ave shopping districts and the best shopping and dining of Buenos Aires on the way to Recoleta, just ten blocks away. The historic cemetery at Recoleta is surrounded by high brick walls designed to contain the wandering spirits of the deceased and protect the impressive mausoleums of Evita (Don't Cry for Me Argentina) Peron and hundreds of others, some famous and others not so.
Only ten blocks in the other direction would take you to Puerto Madero with it's yacht basin and renovated row warehouses featuring tremendous dining variety, a movie theatre, art galleries and museums among historic vessels. You'll also find the ferry to Uruguay located here.
On your walk to Puerto Madero you'll walk past Avenida de Mayo and the Casa Rosada, Argentina's version of White House. While not used as the Presidential residence, you will often see the president communting by helicopter to her offices here. Meanwhile the mothers of the 'desaparecidos' (dissappeared ones) march every week in their trademark scarves to pressure the government to release information about their missing loved ones who disappeared during the 'dirty wars' of the 70's.
Your modern apartment is tastefully furnished and finished with hardwood floors to make you feel at home. From the king bed in the master bedroom (somewhat rare around here) twin beds in the second bedroom, ample closet space, the kitchen and spacious dining area for four--your surroundings provide the kind of comfort and style you desire for a pleasant visit. Modern windows and doors assure the climate comfort you need.
