Fantastic location in a truly interesting historic part of Buenos Aires with a true artistic ambience. The area is very safe to stroll through at any time of the day or night.
The apartment is located in the historic San Telmo district of Buenos Aires where you will be delighted by the local 'Belle Epoque' architecture with strong influences from both France and Italy and the distinctive character of the streets that inspired the tango. Plaza Dorrego is only one block from the apartment where you can find a large range of restaurants and cafes that are typical of the area and Argentina. The Plaza is also the centre for artists from all around Buenos Aires who congregate here to share their skills and to sell their art. It is also the home of some of the most colourful and interesting antique shops selling exquisite objects from Argentina's past. Every weekend the plaza and adjoining streets are buzzing with street markets selling everything from curiosities to antique doors. The market is also accompanied by street artists who will charm you with their performances. Nightlife is also very present with some exciting bars and clubs in a very safe and continuously patrolled area.
Close to San Telmo you have the Presidential palace, namely La Casa Rosada and the financial and commercial centres of Buenos Aires with some of the best shopping in South America. The streets leading to the palace are all incredibly interesting and insightful with some of the oldest churches in Argentina.
Close by you have Puerto Madero, which was styled on the Albert Wharf docks in London where there are some fabulous restaurants serving food from all around the world. Here you can also visit some of the most famous sailing ships that served in Argentina's navy. Beyond Puerto Madero are some fabulously interesting walks through the wetlands national park where the Spanish first discovered Argentina and gave it the name Buenos Aires. You will also find a very interesting street market every Sunday adjoining the national park.
This apartment is a nice way to experience living inside a typical San Telmo conventillo, with several lovely, wide doorways, high ceilings, a wrought iron balcony, and a number of modern updates. The pictures are accurate. The kitchen is adequately equipped for basic meal preparation; very nice to have a clothes washer; we especially liked the unique clothes drier. With selective use of the shutters and cross ventilation, we needed the air conditioning only when temperatures exceeded 30 Celcius. Over our two week stay, our sleep was disrupted on three nights by loud music and people noise. Rush hours traffic noise was daily from 4:30 to 7:00PM. The information binder was an excellent reference! Both the owner and her manager were very responsive to our inquiries and concerns. San Telmo is an interesting spot to get immersed in!
