Warm and inviting colors with bold touches of reds and yellows, fabulous textiles and an inventive use of space, this one-bedroom loft has a large sunny terrace, great design, and is just two blocks away from Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo.
For those wanting to discover old Buenos Aires, both the hip and the authentic, the beautiful and the gritty sides of Buenos Aires, this gorgeous home is a great starting point.
This is a loft with one bedroom upstairs (king-size bed) and an office space five steps above the bedroom that has a double futon where two more people can sleep. The living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom are downstairs. There's also a huge private terrace above the entire apartment.
Four people can sleep comfortably though there are no doors between the sleeping spaces, only a row of curtains for privacy. We provide sheets & towels, a pre-paid cell phone and a land line for local calls, WiFi, a TV and DVD player, a fully equipped kitchen, a filtered water pitcher, two gas heaters, two ceiling fans, two portable fans, a hairdryer, guidebooks and maps, novels, magazines, movies and CDs, and a great vibe throughout. There are also speakers for connecting your phone or other device because no one should be on vacation without their music. Oh, and the view from the terrace is lovely.
We will have a greeter meet you at The Hideaway at the pre-arranged time to give you the keys, walk you through the space, and delight you with our fabulous guidebook (the insider's take on BA).
Interaction with Guests
Angela splits her time between New Orleans and Buenos Aires, so you may be greeted by Grisel. We'll both be available for you. You'll have our email addresses and phone numbers.
We're just 2 blocks from Plaza Dorrego, the heart of San Telmo and 2 blocks away from Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires' most modern neighborhood. It's a fantastic location.
We love San Telmo's bohemian vibe and authenticity. Though gentrification is definitely happening, it's not pretentious... yet.
In particular, we love that it's small. No matter where you are in San Telmo, you'll find a cool place to eat, great bars and cafes, some lovely boutiques (though fewer than in Palermo or Recoleta) and you will mostly hear Spanish.
We provide you with a SUBE card that you can top off to not have to find coins for the buses. The card can be used on buses and the subway. We also have a local guide to the bus system which we'll teach you to use when you check-in. Buses are great in BA.
San Telmo is the oldest neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Its cobblestone streets, crumbling facades, Sunday antique fair, and frequent tango shows in the plaza are what people come here for.
We love all of that. We also love that it isn't fancy. It's the bohemian district. You'll find more places to eat with paper napkins than cloth napkins. The streets aren't clean and tidy. The people of the neighborhood are workers, local workers who will sit on their doorsteps or gather in the many hole-in-the-wall eating and drinking spots, pulling their chairs out onto the sidewalk to interact with passersby.
It's gritty in San Telmo. But when you walk into buildings like ours, you can feel the history of this area. Our building was built at the turn-of-the-century. The original tiles in the hallways, the birdcage elevator, the gorgeous facade and the fabulous dome on top, point to a time when San Telmo was wealthier. Everywhere you go in San Telmo you are reminded of the history of Argentina, its heyday, and its economic crises that happen too frequently.
This is what we want to see when we travel, so it's why we chose to live in San Telmo and why we think you'll love it, too.
