I am a real estate investment advisor living in southern california. This Penthouse is my second home. My manager and I take great pride and enjoyment in providing our guest's with value, fun and transparent dealings with us for their stay at our Penthouse.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2006
Valentino's is my second home. I love Latin American People and culture. I also love the excitement of big city life, so Buenos Aires combined these two passions for me.
Its all about the location in Palermo Soho. This is my favorite part of Buenos Aires and Valentino's is in the heart of it. There are lots of great areas of BA, however it is easy to just stay in Palermo Soho. I also love the Sycamore tree-lined street of Thames and it's proximity to the subway.
Great location in Palermo Soho. We walked to dinner every evening. The apartment itself is nicely appointed and comfortable. The pictures are accurate. The weather wasn't good for us so we didn't get to enjoy the lovely terrace but it looks wonderful. And, as others have mentioned, the manager, Guille, is a treasure. Very nice and helpful with all sorts of hints on BA. Ask her about where to go for leather! Thom the owner is also very easy to deal with and helpful. All in all, a very good experience.
Enjoyed a great week in Palermo! The apartment was complete with all the nice amenities needed for a week, quiet balcony for morning coffee, etc. And the location is great - lots of good places to eat, and easy walking to other areas of Palermo. Only downside - eventually one must go home!
The organization when arrived and picked up at the airport, then the responsible manager (a very efficient and nice lady) which gives you a lot of useful hints about restaurants and other places to go, as mentioned. There is a sube card in the flat, thats a card to use the very efficient bus system in buenos aires and the best is, you leave the building and in two minutes in costa rica street there you take the line 39 which connects you with every part of the city.
The apartment itself is wonderful, all the fotos show really like it is, the balcony perfect, the kitchen perfect.
And Palermo Soho where the apartment is located is just wonderful, nice little shops, trees everywhere, walking distance to Plaza Italia and all the parks, even the Palermo Golf Course is there, greenfee 170 pesos. Amazing.
The owner is very helpful and everything was complied with as agreed. We can truly recommend to start the BA adventure there.
My husband and I stayed here for a week and loved it. It is more spacious than we thought and the large deck is fabulous. There are a lot of great restaurants all around and it's only a 10 min walk to the metro. The apartment had a wonderful relaxed feel to it, light and sunny and was always good to come back to after our adventures out and about in BA.
Guille (apartment manager) was very helpful. She made a dinner reservation for us, told us about locals gathering for tango and also arranged a ride to the airport . Would definitely recommend this wonderful apartment to my friends.
Don't be scared by the Google images of the neighborhood. The graffitis on the facades of the buildings do not do justice to the convivial and relaxed atmosphere of the place. The locals who live on the other floors in the building are super nice, welcoming and quiet. Although the number of restaurants, clubs and places of interest in the neighborhood is astounding, you hear nothing from the street life at night whether you are inside the apartment or on the exquisite (and unexpectedly large ) terrace. The apartment feels spacious; everything works; there are two small (by US standards) supermarkets within 5 minutes walking. The metro (Plaza Italia) is 10 minutes away. There are so many taxis in Bs.As. that you never have to wait more than 2 minutes in front the building to catch one. The biggest surprise was not that the apartment was actually nicer than described on the VERBO website; it was the resourcefulness of the local manager. Let me explain. Just in case, I had brought a music score that I thought could be re-written as a Tango. Well, within one day of her return from vacation, she was able to introduce me to a competent young composer who rewrote the score in three days and a poet who came up with a version of the song in Castellano in two working sessions at the apartment. This no doubt is a measure of the openness, energy and kindness of Bs.As. residents.
My wife and I stayed at this property from 12/28/15 to 02/08/16 and found the apartment to be comfortable and roomy with a fabulous deck where we enjoyed asados (BBQ's) quite a few times.
The apartment is in an area of some of the best shopping and restaurants in Buenos Aires and is a great neighbourhood to walk around in, in the evening. You can walk to the Subte (subway) in about 10 minutes and from there go anywhere in greater Buenos Aires.
The apartment manager, Guille, is a very friendly and efficient manager who welcomed us when we arrived and explained about the apartment and the area and was very responsive when we would contact her.
I was very impressed by the owner, Thom, who Is a very hands on owner and responded to any emails we sent very quickly, which was a very nice surprise for us. We have stayed in Buenos Aires 8 previous times and Thom and Guille were the most responsiveness people we have dealt with there.
Guille also arranged a ride to the airport for us from Aldo who has a very comfortable van with air conditioning and most importantly he is a very safe driver. The cost was in line with what a taxi would cost and for us seemed much safer. It was also much cheaper than what a Remis (car ride) would cost from the airport.
The cleaning person Myrian does a good job cleaning the apartment.
This was a very enjoyable stay for us and we would highly recommend this apartment and certainly if we go back it BA we will consider this apartment's availability.
Thanks for everything Thom and Guille
