We are a french-argentinian couple with 3 children (12,10 and 8 years old). Pablo is from Buenos Aires, and I (Sabine), from France (Brittany). I lived in Buenos Aires for 7 years (from 1996 to 2003). And we are happy to know that we still have some roots there, thanks to the house !
email@example.com purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why firstname.lastname@example.org chose Villa Crespo
We bought the apartment in 2004. We were charmed by the small authentic old building, typical of Buenos Aires, and the ancient architecture of the house. We decided to restore it with the help of our brother-in-law, Federico, who is an architect, specialized in the old historic buildings. But the main reason of our decision, is the neighborhood. In that time, Parlemo Viejo was already a touristic place, but Villa Crespo was still authentic and quite. Sharing a border with Palermo means Villa Crespo is well located, but not being Palermo means that it’s not overwhelmed with foreigners. Its cobbled streets are pretty and there are hip places to eat and drink.
What makes this Apartment unique
You will appreciate the two bedrooms in suite and the spacious living-room. The neighbourhood is very friendly : great local wine bar next door (Cava Jufre), and good local restaurant across the road (Mamma Rosa). Excellent location with access to the metro (Subte B) and walking distance to great restaurants and nightlife.

Perfect place for exploring BA
We spent almost 2 weeks in this lovely tipical Argentinian house and we enjoyed it at all times, especially the large terrace with grill. All rooms and bathrooms were spatious and comfy and a lovely decorated living room. Besides the modern industrial arhitecture touch, the staircase is also ensuring you will stay fit after reach meals with Argentinian steaks and wines🙂�. The apartment is located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, lots of small kiosks around, very close to a big supermarket (Jumbo) and few minutes walk to the subway /metro station (Subte-station Angel Gallardo).
Owners were very friendly, helpful and flexible in regards of check-in / check-out times.
We were 4 persons spending our vacation together and felt as home so we would always like to return here.
We greatly enjoyed our stay here. The flat was so charming with a lot of character. It was spacious, well-appointed, and well located. Sabine and her mother-in-law were great and very responsive.
Wonderful base to explore Buenos Aires
This is a lovely remodel of an old building, with old wooden floors and windows but modern kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. No dishwasher or laundry, but that wasn't a problem. The location is on the border of Palermo Soho and Villa Crespo, so it was a quiet, residential midpoint to explore both areas. Villa Crespo is a booming, exciting area. Perhaps if this is your first visit to Buenos Aires, you might want to stay in the heart of Palermo Soho, but for us this was perfect. A fabulous wine bar downstairs, and an excellent Italian restaurant across the street, plus easy access to small markets and a huge supermarket. Taxis easy to get right downstairs, and about a 6-block walk to the subway. Very good internet. The beautiful old windows and doors do mean that you can hear the street noise--do bring earplugs, like you would in any large city--but the good thing is the noise is infrequent since it's quite residential. If you have small children, the metal stairs to the large upstairs bedroom and bathroom might be a bit daunting, but it was not an issue with our older daughter. Perfect for two couples or a family of 4.
Great place, great neighborhood
We were two couples that stayed here. We had plenty of room to spread out inside the house. We loved the outdoor patio. We would stay here again. I believe it is mentioned in the description, but you do have to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs. Not a problem for us at all just full disclosure.
Huge Unit, Great Owners
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.)

Roomy and Nice and Great Location
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.
The house is 10 mn walking from the heart of Palermo Viejo, the famous Plaza Serrano. But it is not overwhelmed with foreigners. Its cobbled streets are pretty and there are hip places to eat and drink. You also have close access to Subte B on Corrientes Ave.
