About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)


This spectacular one bedroom is just one of the apartments in the Poetry Building that we own and manage. It measures over 720 square feet.

Step through the threshold of this 100-year-old French boutique mansion of the belle epoque, into a world that combines the best of historical architecture with the efficiency of new technology. Walk through the spacious lobby/reception area, past the interior fountain, and into the beautiful apartment with private patio and garden.

It is located on the ground floor and 'contra frente,' away from the hubbub of the city. To the front of the apartment, French doors open to wrought iron railings overlooking the interior fountain. To the back, imported double-pained glass doors and windows insure a good night sleep and usher you into the unique outdoor living and dining space featuring Spanish tiles and abundant vegetation.

It is professionally furnished and decorated with modern elegance alongside charming antique touches. It is fully equipped with a Phillips flat screen television, the latest edition of Apple TV, as well as a personal stereo for your best home away from home experience. Through the Apple TV guests have free and unlimited access to our private collection of thousands of movies and television programming, all available in English.

The bedroom is extremely quiet and private. The mattress is a Simmons 5 star Beautyrest for sleeping comfort. There is a full bathroom off set from the bedroom and a separate toilet off of the living area. Additionally the couch folds out into a sleeper bed that can be extended for extra guests.

The kitchen has a beautiful granite countertop and is fully equipped with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, oven, 4 burner stove and all the accompanying equipment you would have at home. The dining room comes with seating for 6 guests.

Timeless elements such as the original building facade, old patio and grand entrance remain intact. Suites within the building are suited with Phillips flat screen televisions, the latest edition of Apple TV, and stereo systems including iPods with a full library of music for your enjoyment. Hi-speed WI-FI runs throughout each of the building's apartments and covers its shared common spaces which include a large open reception area, as well as an outdoor terrace with dipping pool, outdoor shower, sun lounge chairs and honor bar, and also another terrace with an organic vegetable garden where we grow seasonable vegetables and fruits which guests are invited to pick and enjoy in their private kitchens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Superb! Excellent! Delightful! There are not enough superlatives to describe this lovely apartment that truly enhanced our vacation in Buenos Aires. From enjoying breakfast on the patio in the morning, to sipping wine on the rooftop pool terrace in the early evening, to being able to step out into the wonderful Recoletta neighborhood, the apartment and its location were ideal. Exceptionally well appointed and brand new, the apartment had everything we could need for our week long stay -- including a spaciousness that no hotel room can give you. Linda and Kurt have thought of everything (including impressive car service) and were fantastic hosts -- available for questions and excellent restaurant and wine recommendations! (The welcome basket including coffee and Malbec was also a lovely treat!) We fell in love with Buenos Aires on our trip and also with Luz Y Aire. This is now our neighborhood and home in Buenos Aires. We will be back to stay here again soon, very soon! Thank you Linda and Kurt. Gracias!

You will have a key to wrought iron front gate as well as your unit key.Fair exchange of dollars to Pecos 7 days a week ( no 15%chg) at desk including credit card cash( 5% service charge). Will buyback @end trip. Great location.Walk to Recoleta Sq. & famous cemetery 8-10mins. Garden roof top dipping Pool. Apt has coffee, tea, paper goods, soap, fruit basket , bottle wine upon arrival. Apt C with private walled outdoor patio off BR as well as Juliet type balcony onto main atrium off of dining area. Good air conditioning! The staff here gets a perfect 10 !! They can help you with drivers, day trips, local restaurant, grocery store, and speak English!! Language in BA was a problem so this was important. They also showed concern for our safety and marked our map walking from Palmero SoHo to the polo game( cabs are cheap and Uber reliable- 100 PESO to Soho). Santa Fe 2 blocks for bus and subway.

Building ' s architecture and multi patio Configuration of various units interesting with climbing wines covering walls. The unit across atrium from us had a huge antique chandelier- pretty at nite.

Art in our unit was local artist I recognized- value probably 2500-3000$US. Liked artistic feel of converted mansion. Lobby had art and historical table top books on shelves. Tea and cookies while u relaxed and chatted with fellow travelers.

Clean and comfortable. Happy to come home every evening to this jewel.

Uber to airport was 400 pecos whereas cab upon arrival was 850 pecos.

Beautiful mansion in the middle of Recoleta

Great service, more like s hotel than an Airbnb but in the best possible way. Very close to the main attractions in Recoleta, and close to all you want to see in BA. Definitely recommended!

Good Poetry

  • 5 of 5

Very nice! The apartment was clean and plenty of space. We had our own patio and the pool on the 4th was a nice place to relax in the afternoon. The apartment was well supplied with the basics. The best selling point for The Poetry House is the staff. They were always available to help with reservations, set up transportation or simply make suggestions on walking tours. They were great!,

I would definitely return on my next visit to BA

  • 5 of 5

Everyone was fantastic. Claudio was our primary driver and he was just a pleasure to spend time with and talk to. He was so helpful and gave us tips on where to go and what not to miss. Irina, Paula and Yanina were all great and referred us to some great activities. The rooms were fantastic. so comfortable. Really felt like home. We did some traveling within the country and they referred us Nora at Travel 54 who was a dream to work with. Everything went off without a hitch. We can't wait to come back.
