ONE BEDROOM, PBC, POETRY BUILDING

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.

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!

Beautiful mansion in the middle of Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

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!

The property could not have been more perfect in location, ambiance, condo,and the staff. I cannot say enough about this beautiful building. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. We will be back to BA and we will stay at the Poetry Building.

I've travelled around the world and is rare to find a truly complete 5 star experience.Front the perfect location near the best tourist attractions,best restaurants and local events to the friendly bilingual staff, makes the Poetry building a great temporary home to enjoy the best Buenos Aires has to offer.

We'll be back year after year.

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

Very clean and so helpful. Really made our experience something special.

  • 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.

Experienced Travelers

  • 5 of 5

The Poetry Building is at the very top of apartments I have rented around the world. The facility is as luxurious as most 5 star hotels and the entire staff is better (also they will speak with you in English or Spanish). The concierge service on premises is an important addition. They are available to help 12 hours a day -- and they really want to help and make one's stay in Buenos Aires fantastic. The location in Recoleta is also perfect -- nearby sightseeing and restaurants, but reasonably quiet. For people traveling during the summer months it is nice to know that the air conditioning works very well (unlike some places in BA that may seem nice). The WiFi works flawlessly. We cooked two dinners and were able to buy great ingredients in specialty stores nearby on Rodriguez Pena. The rooftop dipping pool with comfortable seating is also a wonderful bonus. We will be back and recommend the Poetry Building to our family and friends.
