Description

The space

During my time living abroad, I've always dreamt of having my own place in Buenos Aires. For years I looked and looked for it. When I found it I knew it was the place I dreamt of. The wooden windows and floors, the high ceilings, the natural light that comes in all day, the peace and quiet of the apartment in spite of being located on a building situated in the most famous avenue of the city, the views towards the garden of the "Conferencia Episcopal" Palace and the Cavanagh Building in the distance (the first skyscraper in Latin America and a landmark of the city) are all things that drove me instantly towards this place. I used this apartment as my permanent home only for a short time and now I am very excited to share it with visitors from all over the world. I hope you can call this place "home" and that you enjoy your stay in this incredible city I love so much!

Interaction with guests

In most cases I will be the one meeting you for check-in and check-out and answering any questions you have upon arrival. I am available at any time in case you want recommendations and suggestions on things to do, where to go, how to get around, etc. In urgent cases you can always get in touch with me on my mobile phone.

Getting around

Although my favorite means of transportation is on foot, sometimes you will want to explore a bit further, as Buenos Aires is such a big city! In this case, the area is extremely well connected with lots of public bus lines (colectivos) running along both the 9 de Julio Avenue (on the Metrobus stops in front of the building) and along Santa Fe Avenue (50 mts away from the building). The Metro is also very close either in plaza San Martin (3 blocks away) or in the Obelisco (6 blocks away). All my guests will receive my own public transportation card (called SUBE) which they can charge with money in most kiosks and can be used in all public transportation to travel with 50% discount of the normal fares. This card needs to be returned on check-out day together with the keys. If you are coming by car, there are 2 private parking garages around the corner and a public one in Plaza Libertad (across the street). If you are hesitant about public transportation, dozens of taxis per minute drive by the door of the building, I recommend taking "radio taxis" always, you can read on the cars' sides and roofs to which radio taxi company they belong. If it doesn't say "radio taxi" I normally don't take it.

Pilar is an amazing host. She was incredibly welcoming and met us in person to make check in and out a breeze. She was very responsive when issues came up during our stay. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable, exactly as cool as pictured. There is plenty of closet space and a reasonably well-stocked (if small) kitchen. The neighborhood is very central and pretty quiet, though the church next door was undergoing renovations during our stay which resulted in some daytime noise. On two occasions, water leaked briefly through the ceiling from the upstairs neighbor's apartment, but Pilar was quick to contact the neighbor and building staff on our behalf, and is working with them both to make sure it doesn't happen again. Overall, our month stay was very pleasant and we really enjoyed Pilar's lovely home in Buenos Aires!

very nice flat. I think, that is very close to the original airbnb ideal: Has all the amneties a traveller could ask for. But also embodies the charm, the spirit of the city you are visiting. All exactly as described by hosts and shown in the pictures (very nice the raw brick walls) . Since flat is in the rear wing (in a Hinterhaus if you happen to be from Berlin or Hamburg) of the building facing BsAs' main avenue, it is actually quite quiet for being downtown. Host very friendly. And now forget everything I wrote, I wouldn't want to find the flat always already taken when I need one!

Pilar was an execpitional host. She was helpful, friendly and was there to welcome us and show us the workings of the apartment. The apartment is in an old building but it is secure, comfortable and spacious. Everything worked as it should. The location is great on bus routes including the hop on hop off tourist bus. It was close to a lot of the major attractions in Buenos Aries. In short it was a lovely visit. Gary & Linda

Pilar is a marvelous host, very attentive to all our needs, accommodating and easy to communicate with. As with our host, we were impressed with the apartment as well, it is very spacious and well maintained with a rustic feel to it (we loved it) and most importantly in a very safe area; near many great restaurants, shopping centers, parks, markets, and near many other attractions. Highly recommented!
