Great, but lacking one important detail...

  • 2 of 5

Federico was outstanding, and helped us at every step. I have no complaints about the place itself, or the owner, with the exception of one important detail. It appears that he has not gotten his neighbors in the building on board with his decision to rent out the place. This resulted in my wife being yelled at for not taking out a box of trash that his maid had left in the hallway before we arrived (and which we had no idea had anything any to do with our unit, or that it was our responsibility), and on another occasion, almost got me arrested by the police essentially because one of the other tenants believed that I improperly operated the elevator.

Even though it was not true, it put us in a difficult position. At the time, I had been in the lobby for almost an hour waiting for a delivery of lost luggage that didn't come, and many people had come and gone, using the elevator, and any one of them could have caused the elevator problem. However, she decided it was my fault because I was in the lobby. Federico later indicated that even though the woman had just yelled at me about the elevator and left, that she had threatened to falsely accuse me of something (unspecified) to the police just to get him to throw me out of the building. Apparently, she wanted me out of the building because I made her feel "unsafe." I have no idea why, as I didn't even really speak to her. He indicated that he would move us to avoid trouble, and was able to calm her down. However, it surprised me that he acknowledged that his neighbors were willing to make false accusations to the police, and that he was wanting to move us out on this basis, and that he was not apologetic or surprised about this at all. It was apparent that he knew his neighbors did not want temporary renters in the building, and because he was renting the place out anyway, we received the brunt of their rage. The prospect of being falsely accused of a crime in a foreign country for just standing in the lobby of the building waiting for luggage was terrifying, and the fact that Federico was not surprised by this reaction by his neighbors indicated to me that he knew there might be some friction with them. This suggested that he did not really have their consent or acquiescence to renting the place out. That put us in a very awkward position, and that was not disclosed at the time of the rental. It should have been, and I would not have paid so much for the rental if I had known we were unwelcome.

A great location to enjoy Buenos Aires in general and the area of San Telmo in particular.

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but good things to say about our recent stay at the "Parisian Hideaway". It is a unique property that blends old world charm with modern conveniences. We enjoyed using the kitchen which is extremely well stocked with cooking equipment; plates and glasses. Taking the antique elevator with its iron gates is like taking a trip back in time. We were there during an extreme heat wave, but the air conditioning was very effective in the main living areas. It did get a little warm in the back bedrooms, the three stand up fans helped to cool things down. The three french balconies were wide enough for me to sit out and have a cigar and a cocktail while watching the Carlos Calvo street life. San Telmo is not Palermo, but we found the area to be full of great restaurants; markets; shops and of course the Plaza Dorrego, where we caught the Tango dancers several times. Everything we needed was close to hand and main transit lines were a relatively short walk away. We always felt safe, even when walking home after midnight. Bruni and Federico were very professional to deal with and were always quick to answer any queries. Thank you for taking such good care of us. We will definitely try and stay with you again, if and when we return to Buenos Aires.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The location was great - grocery store next door and laundromat across the street. It was well stocked and the remodeled kitchen and bathrooms were very nice. A few suggestions for improving the experience. The tub in the main bathroom was extremely slippery to the point of being dangerous. And the furniture in the living room was uncomfortable and sparse. There were four of us and there were only seats for two. A chest of drawers in each bedroom would have been welcome as there were no closets. But overall, we would recommend this apartment.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is excellent. We loved cooking in the kitchen and sharing a glass of wine on the huge kitchen island. The large dining and sitting room with its huge windows and high ceilings (15 foot?) all added to the charm. We loved the fact that the bedrooms were in the back of the apartment and blocked all of the noise from the street. The beds were great and sleeping late was the norm. Great restaurants and pubs are a block or so away on Peru street, shopping at the market for vegetables was enjoyable and the supermarket next door to the apartment made stocking up easy. I would recommend this apartment to anybody.

Girls' Trip

  • 4 of 5

I am a 54 year old woman and I and another (younger) woman stayed for a week at this charming apartment with character. It had plenty of space for us. The kitchen was modern and it, the dining room and living room had wonderful floor to (high) ceiling doors that opened onto 4 balconies overlooking the street, provided light and a breeze. The street could be busy at times, but we weren't bothered by it at night since the bedrooms are in the rear. The main bathroom was large, tiled, and had a nice shower and lots of counter and storage space. We didn't use the other bathroom, which had a smaller shower. Neither of the bedrooms has a closet, however, there is a large one in the hall that we hung clothes in. The bedrooms on the main floor were spacious, however, there were no dressers or storage spaces for belongings. We didn't use the upstairs bedroom, which was small with a water closet and twin bed. The only thing that I think would improve the place would be to put light bulbs in the ceiling fixtures in the bedrooms and hallway to make them brighter. Both bedrooms had small desk lamps to light the entire room, which made them a bit dark. We loved the San Telmo neighborhood and one of our favorite days was exploring and photographing all the interesting street art and graffiti. We never felt unsafe, but we were aware of our surroundings, went with our gut instincts, and weren't out walking late at night. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again or recommend it to friends who want to stay in this area. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and interesting shops within walking distance, and it is possible to walk to the center of the city (Plaza de Mayo) if you want a little more exercise. We also used the Subte nearby, although if really late at night walking back from the station to the apartment would feel a little sketchy. Federico met us at the apartment and even arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and return us at the end of our stay, which was a considerable convenience. He provided us with a small cell phone that we could use to make local calls and there was WiFi, however, it was a little unreliable. We found it worked best when only one device was using it at a time. The owner of the apartment was easy to work and communicate with, so arranging our stay went smoothly. She also provided us with a list of places to visit, things to do, and restaurant recommendations. Overall great stay here and we hope to return some day.

A Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My husband, younger daughter and I stayed here while visiting our older daughter who was studying at the University of Buenos Aires. The apartment was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The rooms facing onto the street have beautiful high ceilings and are light and airy. The bedrooms (towards the back of the apartment) were darker and very quiet - a perfect combination! The owner, Federico, was friendly and very helpful. The air-conditioning was a blessing in the Argentinian summer - especially for a family from Scotland!

The nearby Gran Parrilla del Plata (Chile 594) is excellent and we had some delicious breakfasts at La Poesia (Chile 502) and Telmo Deli (Hotel Patios de San Telmo, Chacabuco 748) . Very good coffee can be had from the kiosk in the centre of the San Telmo covered market (Defensa, Bolívar San Telmo Carlos Calvo & Estados Unidos block) - the owner is very friendly - and El Banco Rojo (Bolivar 914) serves very tasty, good value sandwiches and wraps, ideal for lunchtime. The weekly Feria de San Telmo (Plaza Dorrego) is also well worth a visit - we bought almost all our souvenirs here.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment - I hope we'll one day have an excuse to return.
