About the property

4 Bedrooms (3 with attached baths) 4th Bedroom is a loft over the great room

Luxury, spacious home at an affordable price - historic building surrounded points of interest, great restaurants, antique shops, fantastic ecological reserve, milongas (tango clubs), and it's just 4 blocks from the Puerto Madero waterfront. Great for friends or family. A shopper's paradise. Located in the heart of the action, yet very quiet - only a block from Plaza Dorrego (site of the famous Sunday Art & Antique Fair). San Telmo, where old world charm meets trendy shopping, restaurants & nightlife. Step back in time into the cobblestone streets of San Telmo and you get a feel of how Buenos Aires was a hundred years ago. This was the place that people aspired to live before the northern suburbs became popular. 4 balconies. Furniture & appliances were chosen to make your stay as comfortable & convenient as possible. Heated bathroom floors. Fully-stocked gourmet kitchen. Beds include a queen, 2 full size & 4 twins, Hi-speed internet & Wi-Fi. VOIP phone/free calls home

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Ruben

Bob and I wanted to thank you for taking such good care of us on our recent visit to Buenos Aires.

Right from the moment we met your at the airport your knowledge of the city and its history enhanced our visit.

We especially enjoyed the day we spent with you touring the city using public transport. Lunch at the local restaurant was a highlight. Our comfort with the bus and subway system after that day really allowed us the freedom to tour the city on our own.

The tango show and the river cruise were both wonderful. We appreciated your help in arranging the tours.

The apartment was wonderful. It allowed us to spend some wonderful time with the kids that just wouldn't have been possible if we had rented hotel rooms. San Telmo was wonderful - the Sunday market, the area restaurants were highlights of our stay.

Thanks for your time and great care while we were in Buenos Aires.

Bob & Vivian

Christmas in BA and a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as pictured on the website. My husband and I spent seven days here over Christmas with our four children (ages 14, 19, 19, and 22). The kids loved having all of the room to spread out. It’s conveniently located with many restaurants, shops, and markets within easy walking distance. We were able to Uber from our apartment to the sight-seeing places further away. We even spent a day in Colonia, Uruguay, which was an easy boat ride away. Ruben was always available to answer our questions and recommended several good restaurants and fresh markets. Ruben arranged for us to have a driver to/from the airport, which was an added convenience. We highly recommend this place to stay in Buenos Aires.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review Will and Laura. It is always so rewarding for Ruben, his helpers and for us to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay. We want to make things as perfect as possible and sometimes the unexpected can happen in BA. Ruben works very hard to make things run smoothly. It is a wonderful exciting city which never sleeps. Better visit again!

Apartment just as shown -- excellent service

  • 5 of 5

Janet provided useful instructions via email a few days before we arrived. Ruben was punctual and informative about the apartment and the area. The location is great, with everything you need within a few blocks. The apartment itself is large, modern and airy. I will stay here again on future trips, I'm sure.

Great place to stay in Buenos Aires!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment on Carlos Calvo is located in the San Telmo district of Buenos Aires. Everything you need, restaurants, shopping, markets, entertainment, is all within easy walking distance. The property itself is huge, easily sleeping 6-10 people. The updating of the property has been perfectly done, each of the three bathrooms and the kitchen are beautiful. The beds were comfortable and easy to rest in.

San Telmo is a lively neighborhood and the property has many windows, so there is a lot of street noise during the day and early evening, but we had no problems through the night. We visited in early July, mid-winter in Argentina, so the weather was cool (~50 degrees) and very wet. The living room was quite chilly, but the bedrooms were well heated and very comfortable. Note that the apartment is up 3 flights of steep stairs, so make sure that everyone who is coming can handle the climb.

Ruben, the apartment manager, was a big help with arranging transportation as needed. He and the property owner made the experience very enjoyable. We had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ty for the great review. It is always rewarding to know we are getting things right. Will try and address the warmth issue. Those lovely high ceilings are perfect for summer but are a big ask at this time of year. We hope you and your family come and see us again Best wishes Janet and Roy

A really gorgeous apartment in Buenos Aires with many amenities and great service from Ruben.

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all. Comfortable, spacious, modern and in a real neighborhood (San Telmo). Additionally, the owner (Janet) was extremely thoughtful and helpful in planning our stay and Ruben was very responsive in answering questions or even stopping by when asked. Having a washer and dryer is a huge advantage as is having two phones (US and local). The hot water in the upstairs bathroom was a little challenging at first, but once Ruben showed us what to do everything went just fine. I can heartily recommend staying in this top notch apartment.
