The Perfect District: Palermo Viejo: Palermo Viejo (Old Palermo) is, as its name implies, the oldest part of the whole Palermo. It runs from Santa Fe Avenue south to Córdoba Avenue, and from Avenida Dorrego east to Coronel Díaz Street.
The neighborhood is centred on Plaza Palermo Viejo and reflects an older Spanish style in architecture, often 'recycled' with modern elements. Such well-known figures as Jorge Luis Borges and Che Guevara once lived in this ward and indeed Borges first wrote poetry in the then quiet barrio. Borges's poem 'Fundacion mitica de Buenos Aires' names a typical square (bordered by streets Guatemala, Serrano, Paraguay, Gurruchaga) adjacent to his childhood home, a popular tourist landmark. It was historically a residential area, popular with communities from Poland, Armenia, Ukraine and Lebanon and old Spanish and Italian families, whose traditions are reflected in local restaurants, churches, schools and cultural centres.
Palermo Soho: Palermo Soho is a small area of Palermo Viejo around Plaza Serrano (officially Plazoleta Cortázar) on Serrano near Palermo's south-western edge. It is a newly fashionable area for fashion, design, restaurants, bars and street culture. The atmosphere in many cafés and restaurants strives to be 'alternative', which makes this area of the city especially popular with young, upper-middle class Argentines as well as foreign tourists. The traditional low houses have been adapted into boutiques and bars, creating a bohemian feel. The square has a crafts fair.
Palermo Highlights: Libertador Avenue, Buenos Aires Botanical Gardens, The Argentine Automobile Club, India and Cerviño Streets, Japanese Gardens (the world's largest outside Japan), Buenos Aires Zoo, Le Parc Condominium Tower, The Parish of St. Adela, The Museum of Latin American Art, Cortázar Square, Gustav Bredow's Font of Agricultural Bounty, Germany Plaza, Tipa-lined Thames Street, Club de Pescadores (Fisherman's Club), Galilei Planetarium (Palermo Woods), Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi, Plaza Italia.

About Jorge Alemany Villodres
Tireless traveler around the world, I felt in love with Argentina right at the first visit! spanish citizen, I courrently live in Ibiza, Spain, where I spent half of the year, and the other half in the beautiful mountains at the french border, where I have my family and most of my friends.

Why Jorge Alemany Villodres chose Palermo
When I first visited Argentina, as a traveler, I found Palermo a really beautiful district. It remains Buenos Aires city center, but not as busy and noisy as other areas, so I thought it would be perfect to have a cozy place to arrive after a long day in the busting city. It has lots of interesting places and amenities walking distance (Palermo Soho and all its nightlife, cafés, art galleries...) and is just some minutes by bus (at the door!) from Florida and Microcentro. I found it to be a safe and peaceful area (although the city is one of the noisiest cities I´ve ever known!), perfect for tourists willing to take the most of the city, and a perfect base for those willing to visit the whole country, needing a place to come back each time.
I have designed it in a hotel-suite-style, all in one area, and I carefully thought about the decoration and spaces design, keeping it simple and convenient, in a cozy style, making it perfect for couples and single travelers!
My experience with former renters revealed the place also perfect for tango dancers for its proximity to Almagro, and for those attending courses at the university so, perfect as well for longer stays.
And of corse, during the hot summer days, the pool is really welcome... Enjoy your stay!
