On arrival you will be given one set of keys for building and apartment access during your stay. If the keys are not returned by checkout date (i.e. they are lost) you will be charged PesosArg$1000 for a replacement set.

Parking

Since this is a central area, like in any major city, parking is not easy during working hours. There are areas with parking meters where, if you find a spot and are quick enough, you can park your car a few hours at a time for a few pesos (coins needed). In the evenings (after 9 pm and until 8 am) and at weekends (Saturday after 12 and Sunday), you can use these spots without paying. Always make sure the kerb is not painted yellow as parking is not allowed in these areas ever.
There is paid parking on the same block of the apartment (on Riobamba). You can park by the hour (at 10 times the cost of on street parking) or day, week or month (prices negotiable).

Average prices in 2015 in Arg Pesos
Street Parking $4.50 per hour (limited availability)
Garage Parking $35 per hour (plenty of availability)

Other things to note

The hot water and the heating are centrally controlled. There is hot water 24 hours a day. Should the hot water not work, you should advise the care-taker. There is an alternative system in place that can be activated if necessary.

There is a washing machine in the toilet to the side of the kitchen. It is prohibited to hang clothes on the balcony.

There is no caretaker at night, Sundays or Bank Holidays. During weekdays they can be found at the desk downstairs or by ringing the bell at the desk, on the entry phone or from the entry phone in the apartment. The second door downstairs is locked when neither of them is on duty (Monday to Friday from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. and Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 8 p.m. to 12 p.m.)

The area is generally safe. You should be prudent if returning late at night and you should be careful particularly when opening the door as you should with any apartment building in the city.

When you enter or leave the building, should anyone approach you, or be there, regardless of what they tell you, do not let them in. This is not rude, it is customary prudence in Buenos Aires, understood by everyone.

The apartment was in a convenient location, walking distance to major bus routes and the subte line. The are good coffee shops and restaurants nearby, it is handy to Carrefour and other markets for grocery shopping, as well as to other shopping – Avenida Santa Fe, two blocks away, is a major throughfare. A downside to the location was the school across the street, which was rather noisy during the day when the kids were in the playground on recess breaks. Also the street out front, Avenida Paraguay, is a semi-major throughfare, with buses and lots of traffic. The latter is also an upside, because getting a taxi is usually a matter of less than a minute after you step outside. The building had an art deco feel, as did the apartment, which had high ceilings and traditional furniture (though the kitchen was more modern). The kitchen was large and well-equipped, with an eating area. Gas stove and oven (though without the usual temperature control), and a dishwasher and a large fridge. The washing machine (in a small room off the kitchen) was small, but it was handy to have it in the unit for small loads. No dryer, but there is a drying rack which could be used on the small balcony. Ray has an apartment manual on-line, with explicit (U-tube) instructions in how to use everything. The living/dining area was very spacious and airy, and equipped with a large tv, with a few channels that could be switched to English language. The master bedroom was pleasant, with lots of light from glass doors leading to a small balcony. The second bedroom wasn't as bright but a very good size. There was also a third, very pleasant, room which was furnished as an office. There was very good storage throughout the apartment. The first bathroom was spacious and convenient, with a bath and shower, but the second bathroom was very narrow, with a small sink; it did, however, have a walk-in shower. Ray was an excellent host, helpful with suggestions and prompt to deal with any problems. I would recommend Ray, and this apartment, to anyone wanting to spend some time in Buenos Aires.

This is a centrally located comfortable apartment. It is quiet and large enough to spread out. The area is clean and his instruction booklet is short enough on rules to make it easy to comply. He is quite a pleasant man to deal with when things come up.

Ray was super-responsive. And the place felt much bigger than in the pictures. Though the neighborhood isn't posh, it IS quite centrally located, so walking distance to most places and a short cab ride from others.

Nos encantó el departamento y sobretodo la ubicación. Está cerca a la avenida corriente y la avenida Santa Fe, con mucha movida cultural y comercial. Ray fue un excelente anfitrión y nos dejó una lista de recomendaciones de lugares para comer e indicaciones para movilizarnos.
