Guestbook comments from the owner
My brother and I went to Buenos Aires for 2 weeks and stayed at Dave's Palermo studio. The location is excellent, super close to a lot of buses and the train (subte) station. The neighborhood is also full of great restaurants and bars that are within walking distance as well. The apartment itself is ideal for two people. Very cozy and spacious for a studio. The furniture, appliances and amenities are in excellent conditions. The balcony was our favorite part! The building is also secure and we felt safe the entire time. On top of all this, the service that Dave provided was EXCELLENT. We were greeted by his brother-in-law, Andres, and he took great care of us the entire time we were there, checking in, offering recommendations, etc. Overall, a great great great experience and I'd definitely recommend it! I'd definitely stay there again :) Saludos Dave y Andres!

I'm a former NYC resident who got a bit burnt out and moved to Buenos Aires for a change of pace. I'm now an expat, husband and father and call Buenos Aires my home.

Dave McComb purchased this apartment in 2010

This is a beautiful studio apartment located less than one block to the subway. After searching for apartments for awhile, we knew this was the one as soon as we saw it. We added a lot of personal touches and custom furniture and furnishings to make it as comfortable as possible.

You will not find a much better location in Buenos Aires. The Humboldt Studio is in Palermo Hollywood on the border of Palermo Soho and less than a block to the subway. It is the perfect place to start exploring the city from and a great neighborhood for anything you need within a block or two.

GREAT APARTMENT, CONVENIENT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here 6 nights and enjoyed our visit tremendously. The apartment was just right for the two of us. It's conveniently located near the Metro and bus stops, and near some very good, inexpensive restaurants. I was not crazy about walking around at night and these places were only a block and a half away. A grocery store is close by, as is a barber (peluquero) - a very good one! The apartment is quite safe with 3 levels of entry, all with keys.

Andy, Dave's brother-in-law, met us with a lovely welcome basket of fruit, chocolate and wine, and was always available for help when we needed it.

The apartment was comfortable, great bed, washer, kitchen, telephone, TV, internet, anything you might want is there. The A/C was a welcome feature as well. We enjoyed the balcony!

We highly recommend this place!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY! DEFINITELY WORTH IT!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Dave's studio was the best decision I made before going to Buenos Aires for the first time. It's located in a great location within walking distance of the Subte subway station, shops, supermarkets, banks, awesome restaurants, and plenty of attractions. I had originally only booked the studio for one week, but I enjoyed my stay there so much that I extended my stay for an additional week. It's in a quiet neighborhood and the photos don't even do justice to how beautiful both the studio itself and the neighborhood are. Dave was awesome throughout the entire process, meeting me at the apartment at my arrival and telling me all about the neighborhood. There is a welcome packet with all the information anyone would need, and the best part is the in-suite washing machine AND the power adapters that were in the apartment. I would definitely recommend the Humboldt Studio to anyone who may be thinking of staying in the area. I'll definitely be back. Thank you again, Dave.

FABULOUS LOCATION, GREAT APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Dave's apartment for 8 days. I highly recommend staying there. For starters, Dave is personally great to deal with. He tracked our flight so that we didn't have to worry about calling him once we arrived in Buenos Aires. He even offered to exchange money for us at the blue rate, which really helped to reduce the amount of money that we spent on our vacation. The welcome basket of wine, fruit, alfajores, etc. was a nice touch. We also took advantage of Dave's inexpensive early check in and late check out options.

The location of the apartment is ideal. It's only a block and a half away from the subway. It's in a residential neighborhood, which I found to be a huge plus because I felt like a local instead of a tourist. We felt very safe in the apartment and in the neighborhood in general. There is a coffee shop (The King Coffee) directly across the street with very friendly owners, and a wine shop next door to the apartment building. Palermo Hollywood is also a great neighborhood for vegetarians like my husband and me because there are a number of all veggie or partially veggie restaurants to choose from. We ate in the neighborhood almost every night, so we could walk and didn't have to worry about dealing with a cab.

The apartment itself was also great. We spent a lot of time at the end of the day drinking wine on the balcony. I was a little concerned that the Murphy bed was going to be uncomfortable, but it ended up being one of the better beds that I have slept in on vacation. The only minor downside was that we found the internet connection to be quite slow to nonfunctional at times. But since neither my husband nor I had to work on the trip, it wasn't too much of an inconvenience.

We truly felt that Dave's apartment was a tremendous value for the price. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks Dave!!!

GREAT DECISION

  • 5 of 5
Never been in Argentina before and coming to a country that you never been before can add stress to any traveler. I was coming out of Brazil and had some problems clearing customs. I lost some documentation. I finally found my documents and away I was to one of my best vacations ever. After arriving at the apartment Dave brother-in-law, Andres was waiting with a welcome basket that included wine, bananas, apples and some sweets. I was at ease with this apartment. It had everything you will ever need in when you are on vacation. It is home away from home. Andres was even willing to exchange some of my U.S. Dollars at the Blue Market Rate! This was extremely helpful. The pictures of the apartment are exactly what you are getting when you arrive at this apartment. Internet connection. There is even a cell phone to use just buy the sim card and start calling. The programming with the cable was varied between Spanish and English. The remote had a feature called SAP where you could switch between languages on most networks. The apartment is situated in Palermo. It is one of the safest areas of Buenos Aires, with quick access to the main avenue for all of your transportation needs. There are plenty of restaurants and stores to shop. I will have no reservation to stay here in this hidden gem in Buenos Aires. Thank You Dave and especially Andres for all of your help.

FANTASTIC APARTMENT IN BUENOS AIRES

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week at the Humboldt Studio in August. Our stay could not have been better. The studio apartment is in an ideal location just a few blocks from the Palermo Subte station and Santa Fe bus artery as well as the Palermo Hollywood and Palermo Soho dining options. We opted to walk to most of the rest of the city, which is certainly feasible from Humboldt street.

The amenities inside the apartment are everything that you could ask for and the balcony is a really nice added feature. The pictures accurately portray what you can expect from the Humboldt Studio.

Dave's brother-in-law, Andy, took care of us while we were in Buenos Aires including a really informative welcome package. We would definitely stay again on future visits to Buenos Aires.
