Exquisite apartment in San Telmo, Buenos Aires
Submitted: May 7, 2012
Stayed: January 2012
My wife and I spent the month of February, 2012 in this magnificent apartment in San Telmo, the Bohemian barrio of Buenos Aires. It is located within short walks to buses, subway, restaurants, local stores, the many antique shops for which San Telmo is noted, and a delicious empanada chef at the end of the pasaje. Fermin and his wife Rosa looked after the apartment and us exceptionally well. We always felt safe walking in the neighborhood during the day, and we took taxis during the evening hours.
After a full day savoring the many sights, sounds, and tastes, of the city, it was a comfortable haven to return to: the flowers in the spanish-tiled foyer, the unusually-large rooms with their high ceilings, the balcony in the upstairs bedroom overlooking the foyer, the fully-equipped kitchen, all so tastefully furnished, and decorated with lavish paintings. Our daughter, who joined us for a week, particularly enjoyed the downstairs bedroom with its luxurious dressing room and bathroom. We also really appreciated having Wi-Fi along with the dual phone system: one for local calls and the other, Vonage, for calls to home. The apartment fully lived up to the photos.
We would confidently recommend this apartment to our family and friends, and anyone who is looking for a comfortable, well-appointed home-from-home in Buenos Aires.
