This is a very nice two-bedroom apartment, greatly located, in the Historical area of San Telmo, just two blocks away from the famous Dorrego Square (where every Sunday visitors can visit the antique market with tango dancers on the streets). The apartment has a living dining room facing a lovely balcony, one bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bedroom with twin beds, a large fully equipped kitchen and one full bathroom and a second toilet. The apartment was recently remodelled and it is equipped with cable TV, air conditioning in both bedrooms, stereo, refrigerator with freezer, microwave, kitchenware, linens and towels. Warm and nice option.
san telmo area: San Telmo
The most traditional and picturesque neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, full of history and personality, very rich in architecture and art tendencies. San Telmo is one of the oldest areas in the city, well known for its colonial style, with narrow cobbled streets and old buildings, which still preserve their original facade. This bohemian area is today known for offering a wide range of restaurants, pubs and tango clubs. San Telmo´s highlight is the Plaza Dorrego Fair, which takes place every weekend. Really eccentric, it offers a huge amount of antiques and it gathers tango dancers, musicians, actors and typical shows from all around.
The apartment is great and spacious, the building is very well kept 1930's period also very nice balcony overlooking the street. I love the neighbourhood it is near the main square where lots of things are happening.
Ricardo was very communicative and kind and his brother Horacio who took care of our check in and out was attentive to our needs.
We had a great holidays and if We come back to Argentina I will definitely stay here.
Thank you Ricardo and Horacio

Ricardo was great with communication, very friendly and thoughtfull.
I would definitely recommend it to my family and friends!
We stayed in this apartment for six nights in March. We love the San Telmo neighborhood and have stayed in the area once before. The owner, Ricardo, is quite nice and speaks fluent English. The apartment is fairly large and has beautifully polished floors.
However, it is situated on Peru Street which is extremely noisy at all times of the day and night. We like to keep windows open. If you don't mind closing the windows and balcony door, it won't be a problem. The balcony is quite long and has a table with several chairs.
The linens were quite dingy and grey with use--there was some confusion with the cleaning staff who put old sheets on the bed that were extremely thin and had lost their elasticity to hold on to the mattress. The owner finally did supply new sheets for the master bedroom. The bed itself is quite squishy and my husband prefers a firm mattress, so he slept in the second bedroom. This room has two single beds. We informed the owner that they needed mattress pads.
Be aware that the shower in the second bathroom is merely a shower head coming out of the wall of the tiny bathroom itself. It would be extremely difficult to use.
The kitchen needs a good scubbing, particularly the insides of the cabinets as well as all the glass objects and other decor.
It was difficult to see in the pictures the exact furniture in the apartment. We could not find anywhere to sit in the living area. There is a single mattress covered in faux leather, a strange orange bucket chair, and a kind of reclining deck chair. The dining table, however, is large enought to seat six people.
The apartment is near Plaza Dorrego and other tourist sites in the San Telmo neighborhood.
We have stayed in two other apartments in San Telmo, but since discovering this treasure, we have had three wonderful stays in a row. We are frequent travellers to BA, and wouldn't dream of staying elsewhere.
Ricardo has been the most attentive owner we have ever encountered in our many apartment stays in Europe and South America. Clean, super location, and a very well equipped kitchen. We hosted a dinner party during our last stay, and comfortably cooked a three course dinner in the large kitchen. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area, as well as, a huge take out parilla (bbq) next door. A.C. works well, and the two elevators are quite quick, with almost no wait.
Location is a huge thing when traveling and this apartment is perfect. The Pope's BBQ is next door, with great chicken ($5.00 US for 1/2), the ribs were fatty, but taste great. The market is a block away with great vegetables, several closeby convenience stores supply everything else needed. The apartment is basic, but has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We enjoyed the balcony and spent most mornings there enjoying the sun, and evenings with a glass of wine.The one downside is the noise. The school kids don't have much room to burn energy and have high walls on two sides for the noise to echo off of. The trucks, busses and motorcycles are numerous and the garbage pick up in the early hours is bound to wake you up.
This is a very large, well equipped, air conditioned apartment, located in a very safe part of San Telmo. Just below the apartment is a take away Parilla with a huge grill. Excellently prepared beef, pork , chicken and salads, all at very reasonable prices. You are also only 2 blocks from 2 wine stores, San Telmo Market, a bakery, and a fresh pasta store.
The only negative, and this didn't bother us greatly, is that it could use a new bed. Might be a problem if you had a bad back.
We spent a lot of time on the long balcony taking in the dailey life unfolding 3 floors below.
We will be back next year.
