This open loft style apartment measures over 800 sq. feet (74 m2).
The main sleeping area is downstairs and the upstairs loft area is a large open relaxing area with flatscreen television, DVD, built-in bed sized couch and a working desk chair.

The space

The Poetry Building is located in Recoleta, one of Buenos Aires most desired and exquisite neighborhoods, surrounded by parks, cafes, restaurants, and shopping. The building itself evokes the romance that is Buenos Aires. It is firmly rooted in Argentina’s history as the former home of one of its most famous and aristocratic families, the Peralta Ramos. Many of the original architectural lines and much of the beautiful grace of the original 100 year old mansion have been restored. Much effort has been taken to meticulously update Poetry’s interiors to interpret and integrate current trends with modern demands.

Guest access

Guests will have access to our large open reception area, our common outdoor terrace, open year round which can be used for wine events or other private gatherings, with dipping pool, outdoor shower & sun lounge chairs. Additionally, our guests are welcome to have a picnic on our rooftop organic vegetable garden and pick from that season's offerings.

Interaction with guests

We maintain an administrative office with a multi-lingual staff on the ground floor of the building. We offer full concierge services and answer any questions and provide help with anything you need while staying with us. Our office is open from 8am to 9pm from Mondays to Fridays and 9am to 9pm on weekends and holidays. Additionally, we have a live-in porter to help with early & late check-ins or any issues that may arise during your stay.

This was my first time using AirBNB and it couldn't have been better. The host(s) were great. They organized dinners, shows and car transportation for us. Location was great. Easy walking to anywhere and felt safe. Building and rooms are gorgeous. Loved the rooftop garden and dipping pool!

I organized for my parents to travel to Buenos Aires and to stay in the Poetry Building as it appeared to have the perfect blend of an authentic Argentinian feel and that of a luxurious contemporary style. Based on my interaction with Irina and other members of the boutique building and, more importantly, based on my parents' reaction, this place is everything one could hope for in a short-term stay in Argentina and more! The hosts went above and beyond to make sure that my parents had a first class stay and were able to experience the tango scene to its fullest. Their review is below: One week that we spent at the Poetry Building at the apartment 1B passed by in a blink of an eye. We think it was an ideal place for us to stay at. It is recently renovated with a good sense of style and elegance and just right proportion of antique and modern elements. Nice touches can be found everywhere. Subtle fragrance of live flowers, a bottle of Malbec and a box of Patagonian chocolates welcomed us in our apartment. Comfortable king size bed, modern bathroom, spacious loft equipped with a TV and a sofa-bed, kitchen sufficient enough to make a good dinner made us feel like home. A hardwood floor in a spacious room was essential because it allowed us to practice tango and even invite friends and tango teachers. The staff was excellent, warm and friendly, every one of them. They offered us a great choice of activities including famous tango shows and milongas and always were a good source of information. Recoleta was the perfect location and made our stay comfortable, pleasant and safe. We will definitely be back and won't look for another place to stay.
