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.

A native of Argentina, I live and work in Norway. My family and I do enjoy visits back to Buenos Aires to visit family and friends. I have to confess that I bought this apartment because of it's location, comfort and the incredible view it offers. The surrounding buildings offer variations of the incredible architectural features in the city. From the apartment you look down on these buildings, the trees and the traffic that seems so far below. Here's my picture in another of my favorite cities, New York.
Living in the sky with a fabulous view, within walking distance of many of my favorite parts of the city, this is my place to be. The architectural eye-candy of Buenos Aires seems to peek at you from around every corner. Known by many as the Paris of South America the city fathers for many years enforced their preference for French-style building design. It shows! Beautiful architecture dating from the late 1800's to the present appears unexpectedly--housing museums, mansions, cafes, cathedrals, hotels, schools, apartments or government offices.
I try to get by the Plaza General San Martin frequently myself to sip a coffee or glass of wine on the sidewalk and enjoy the parade of people passing by the monument in the park. It's just two blocks away. The Marriott Plaza Hotel is on the other side of the park, just three blocks away from my apartment. I can see the park from my living room.
Michael O'Gorman purchased this apartment in 2009
I love to share this neighborhood with guests. There are lots of cafes and restaurants and the central location makes it a great place to explore every corner of the huge city of Buenos Aires, from Palermo in one direction to Puerto Madero in the other.
If you want to sample the real upscale Buenos Aires neighborhood and home, this is it! Cafes in any direction, many choices from simple to fine dining within a couple of blocks.
Just wanted to thank you so much for the great apt this week. It's already been so perfect in so many ways. Life was a little hectic leading up to this trip so I was relieved it all worked out so well with such little time to plan.
