Steps from the Alvear Palace, this 2 BR apartment in the heart of Recoleta is owned by a Milan-based decorator who keeps everything in pristine condition. Just upgraded and fully repainted, this modern apartment is sure to please.

The space

Owned by a Milan-based Interior Designer of luxury hotels in Europe, this sprawling two-bedroom apartment is ideal for couples or families and features an oversized Master Suite, a Guest Bedroom with a queen size bed and an available twin bed in the library which allows for a 5th guest. A large, eat-in kitchen makes this apartment ideal for people coming to Buenos Aires for several months.

Guest access

Unlike most rentals, this apartment has all of the comforts and details of a five-star hotel. Furnishings, art and accessories all reflect the international style of the designer who owns the property.

Interaction with guests

You couldn't ask for more with Marcela as the property manager. Marcela personally meets all guests at the property, shows them the building and the apartment, and points out all of the many local places to see and explore.

Other things to note

Staying here is a chance to experience life in one of the classic European buildings that so characterize the city. The front door opens to reveal a long corridor lined with pilasters and leading to the main lobby, a two-story space featuring a curved marble staircase straight out of Sunset Boulevard.

Marcela was very accommodating to my group of three since we confirmed our booking en-route. The apartment was beautiful, spacious, and amazingly decorated. Having on-site laundry was especially handy. Although the apartment is on a busy street, we were provided with background noise makers to provide us with a good night's rest. The location of the apartment was fantastic as it is within walking distance to the cemetery, parks, top notch restaurants and morning cafes. The provision of a welcome bottle of wine was excellent after a long series of flights from Canada.

What a great apartment! The space is really beautiful and huge. Everything is even better than it looks in the pictures and the location is wonderful. Although it is on a busy street with air conditioning in the bedroom we didn't find it an issue at all....and I'm a light sleeper. Marcela gave great recommendations when we checked in and was on hand through our stay to help answer questions and provide tips. She also arranged a taxi to the airport when we left making our stay extra relaxed. We would love to stay again! Thank you.

Marcela was very responsive and provided us with several recommendations for Buenos Aires after our arrival, as well as a bottle of delicious wine. The apartment is in a very good condition and looks as advertised. The kitchen is well equipped. The master bedroom is very spacious and the second bedroom is smaller but comfortable as well. The location is very central with several bus stations in front of the building. On the negative side, the noise from the busy street made it impossible for the four of us to sleep without ear plugs as even the provided white noise machines did not cancel out the traffic noise.

This is a dream flat located on bustling street in a fabulous Buenos Aires neighborhood! It is filled with style and charm but was cozy and comfortable. It is a perfect location with walking access to lots of sites and transportation. Marcela was a great host who communicated effectively and timely and helped us with any questions or needs we had. Would definitely recommend this one!
