Excellent location with access to the metro and walking distance to great restaurants and nightlife.
In the same street, 50 m away, you can dance Tango in a wonderful place : Estudio Dinzel.
By Buenos Aires standards, this unit is huge. It is basically a townhouse design of only one unit, as opposed to the more typical apartment building. After ascending the stairs, one reaches the main floor. The living room is large with a lovely wood floor and French door windows facing the street. The kitchen is also spacious and fairly well equipped by Argentina standards. No dishwasher, but that is normal. There is a small guest bathroom. Also on this floor is the second bedroom, again spacious, with an en suite bath and plenty of closet space.
Another set of stairs takes you to a level, which has a comfortable seating area with a couch that could be a bed. The large master bedroom on this floor has an ensuite bath with jacuzzi tub. The bed is comfy and glass doors open to a terrace sheltered from the street by a wall. Again, nice wood floors,
One of the best features of this apartment is that both bedrooms are buffered from street noise, making them exceptionally quite for Buenos Aires. This is a big deal.
Last, but not least, a short set of stairs takes you to the large roof terrace, which has chairs for lounging and a large barbecue grill.
To top off the experience, Sabine the owner was a good communicator and extremely kind and accommodating. The on site manager is her mother-in-law, Mercedes, who handled check in and check out like a real pro. Absolutely no hassles.
The location is Villa Crespo, not Palermo proper. This means there are not a lot of shops and restaurants in the immediate area. It is also means a lot less traffic. Palermo proper is a ten minute easy walk.
Oh, the wifi is fast because you are not sharing the connection.
All in all, a really good choice for Buenos Aires.
The only real caveat is the stairs, which are not appropriate for people with disabilities or in poor shape. (We are over 70 and had no problem, but we are pretty fit.)

This was our second time to stay here. They are very accommodating. The duplex is within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Highly recommended by us.
My son and I spent 6 nights in Buenos Aires and stayed here; we loved both the location and the house. The house could easily accommodate six people and I think people will still find a place to hide out and read a book. The subway was a few blocks away and taxis were easy to find. The kitchen was better equipped than others I have stayed in. It was too cold to spend much time on the roof deck but in the hotter weather, it would be a great place to be. The added benefit was the number of excellent restaurants within walking distance with a lovely wine bar next door. Very professionally handled by the owners. Will definitely recommend this house to my friends!
My family (husband and two young daughters) recently returned from our stay in Buenos Aires visiting family. My sister and her husband coincidentally live about 5 doors down on the same street, so finding this rental so close to them, was absolute ideal and perfect for what we were looking for! The apartment was exceptionally clean....the pictures remain true in real life as they do on the computer screen. Everything was there when we arrived...toilet paper, towels, tourist information, etc. It was spacious and my daughters LOVED the second floor "loft". Their bedroom was downstairs and they slept like champs. After they went to bed, we went into the "Majestic Red Room" to unwind from the day and indulge in some Argentinian wine! We were able to even BBQ out on the beautiful terrace one night (as it is winter there now, we found a great day for an Argentine "Asado")!!
Sabine was excellent, informative and was very accommodating to our specific situation...even allowed my sister to meet the property manager before we landed, so that when we arrived from our 20 hour travel adventure from the USA, our refrigerator was stocked with local yummies for us and our girls.
We plan on using this rental from now on in when our family (parents, cousins, friends) visits my sister and her husband. It was our home away from home...added bonus was an adorable wine bar down stairs!
Diese charmante Wohnung können wir mit voller Überzeugung empfehlen! Der geräumige Wohn-, Essbereich, zwei Bader, die Dachterrasse, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ganz in der Nähe und nur zwei Blocks von Palermo entfernt. Im Nebenhaus gibt es eine der besten Weinbars der Stadt, was will man mehr.
Die Gastgeber sind freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Wir haben den ganzen Monat März dort sehr genossen!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apt was just as in the pictures and very clean. The upper terrace was perfect for mornings and evenings - very hot during our stay. A bit of a walk to most restaurants (Mamma Rosa was closed when we were there but it has great reviews). Wine bar downstairs is awesome, Groceries available right around the corner, We couldn't find the bank at the described location but eventually found a bank machine nearby. Owners / managers were very accommodating with arrival and departure times.
