A Family Reunion
Submitted: February 18, 2013
Stayed: November 2012
My husband, younger daughter and I stayed here while visiting our older daughter who was studying at the University of Buenos Aires. The apartment was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The rooms facing onto the street have beautiful high ceilings and are light and airy. The bedrooms (towards the back of the apartment) were darker and very quiet - a perfect combination! The owner, Federico, was friendly and very helpful. The air-conditioning was a blessing in the Argentinian summer - especially for a family from Scotland!
The nearby Gran Parrilla del Plata (Chile 594) is excellent and we had some delicious breakfasts at La Poesia (Chile 502) and Telmo Deli (Hotel Patios de San Telmo, Chacabuco 748) . Very good coffee can be had from the kiosk in the centre of the San Telmo covered market (Defensa, Bolívar San Telmo Carlos Calvo & Estados Unidos block) - the owner is very friendly - and El Banco Rojo (Bolivar 914) serves very tasty, good value sandwiches and wraps, ideal for lunchtime. The weekly Feria de San Telmo (Plaza Dorrego) is also well worth a visit - we bought almost all our souvenirs here.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment - I hope we'll one day have an excuse to return.
