Beautiful loft and building! Great location in Recoleta! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Poetry Building is a beautiful French building in a great location, close to great dining, shopping, taxis, and many historical sites. The staff is very helpful and friendly; they made reservations and arranged private auto transportation for us. They speak English very well to. Loft 1B is spacious and decorated beautifully. It’s located one floor up from street level, so occasionally there was slight street noise. The king size bed is comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The balcony is small but opens to the interior courtyard where you can hear the fountains from the first floor. We loved our stay!

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Poetry building was everything we hoped for. Leo and everyone else at the concierge were super polite and helpful when we wanted to make plans for the evening, or just wanted to get our Apple TV (included in the loft) working.

The amenities were more than we expected, including full-service laundry, room cleaning, Apple TV, local cell phone, and more. The booklet of advice was chock full of good much so that we took our copy home with us.

The room was exactly as described, with a loft perfect for our 4 year old. The only concern we had was the lack of real railing, but our son was the right age to know how to be safe. Any kids under 4 would probably need to sleep / stay on the main level.

If we were to visit BA again, we would certainly look to stay at Poetry.

Clean, safe and well located with amazing staff

  • 5 of 5

The room itself was amazing, and stylish and spacious. However, the best part was the staff. They went out of their way to help, setting up reservations and giving us recommendations that were very useful. We 100% recommend it! Thanks especially to Claudio...

Beautiful unique Recoleta apartments - more like a boutique hotel than a vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Poetry Building for our week vacation in Buenos Aires in December 2016 and absolutely loved it!! It's more like a boutique hotel than a vacation rental (without the expensive prices!). They have a concierge who was extremely helpful with arranging dinners, shows, etc. before our arrival, and the communication (both before and during the stay) was excellent. We stayed in 1B for most of the trip, but when our travel plans changed they were very helpful and moved us next-door for our extra night. The rooms are very spacious, with loft ceilings and all the amenities, and were cleaned every day. They have free Wi-Fi through the building, a small dipping pool with a deck on the 4th floor, and an organic vegetable garden on the 6th floor (where you can help yourself to any ripe produce). They also offer to arrange airport pickup and drop-off (although if you have Uber, that's usually cheaper), and they offer to exchange Argentinian pesos (for USD cash or you can put it on your credit card). We took advantage of this because the banks tend to strike on inconvenient days, there's a fee for each withdrawal and a limit of 2500 pesos per withdrawal/day. They also offer to exchange any pesos you don't use back at the same rate at the end of your trip (a great deal you won't find at any bank!!). Even if you're planning on using credit cards for most of the trip, you will need pesos for cab fare, the street markets, and tips at restaurants (you can't put it on your card like you do in North America/Europe). Having a full kitchen was great to have wine before going out to dinner or coffee and a small breakfast in the morning (there's a grocery store round the block and they will even offer to buy some basic groceries for you prior to your arrival!). I would have to say the only drawbacks are the bathrooms, which can be somewhat small and the showers are open plan so when you shower the entire bathroom gets wet. Very centrally located about a 10 minute walk from the Recoleta cemetery. Would definitely recommend/go back!!

Superb location, helpful staff - we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect- walkable to major sights as well as edge of Palermo. Safe neighborhood. Great restaurants/ cafes in walking distance. Beautiful and thoughtful renovation of building into boutique hotel. Staff super helpful and friendly from the time you book through your last day. Lovely outdoor dipping pool and terrace, but best of all is having a bit more room than in a hotel room with the additional sitting room/ kitchen. AC worked well and good soundproofing as we did not hear neighbors and just a hint of outdoor traffic. Very thoughtful touches such as giving a bottle of wine upon arrival and having a small guest refrigerator on the outdoor terrace for a last-minute purchase of beer or bottle of wine. We debated between staying in Palermo and here in Recoleta and are sure we made the right decision! Hope to be back in the future with our children!
