Guest access

Guests use the shared bathroom at the top of the house (please note this is up 2 flights of stairs so not for the elderly or infirm. There are other toilets in the house that you can use on the ground floor). They also have access to the dining area and garden (if you wish to have kitchen access please book the mint room or suite). We invite you to pick your own oranges and loquats when our trees fruit.

Our live-in house-sitters will answer any questions you might have about your stay and I am always available by email or telephone should you require.

a unique adventure If you'd like a unique experience traveling in a foreign country, this is a perfect fit. It's a beautiful, real historical palace, with wooden floor and stairs, some impromptu installation(say, a wine bottle with a dance shoe), artistic in every corner. The room is also beautifully designed in bluish tone. The staff members LIna and Alex speak perfect english, are quite responsive and ready to solve any problem, add on the facilities (microwave, etc. etc), and regularly clean the room. In a palace like this, might feel a bit cold and quiet honestly. so it's nice to see and chat with them once for a while, as well as a cute cat that mysteriously appears. The only inconvenience, the room is without a bathroom which is within my expectation, i would wish to have a hand washing sink. But there're a few bathrooms in other floors. Would have enjoyed more if it's in a warm season. The area is convenient, within 5min walking distance to two subway stations(linea C), 3-4 supermarkets nearby, and close to a few tangos. Thank you Lina and Alex for the wonderful experience i 've had in San telmo. Already missing the palace.

Palacio San Telmo is a unique place, staying there for a few day is an exceptional experience. Above all, we enjoyed the historical character of the place,not often do we have a chance to stay in a unique building like this one. The host Alex was very friendly and helpful. And we also appreciated the location within the walking distance from artistic San Telmo and other attractions of Buenos Aires.

We enjoyed our stay in this unique palace! The whole place is really awesome. The room is close to the Main Street so it can be a little bit noisy but it didn't bother us much. Lina and Alex are very nice and friendly and the key-handover was easy without any problems. Muchas gracias!
