Great attention has been made to this newly renovated apartment to optimise charm, light and space. The marble floors extend to the large balcony which can comfortably accommodate four people sitting in the afternoon and evening sun. The living room enjoys the same views with a large comfy sofa and three easy chair designed by osvaldo borsani. There is a 40inch sony television with some 60 channels - several in english. The dining table was designed by norman foster no less and chairs by phillipe starck. Large double doors open out to views of the park with pilar church in the background.
The bright kitchen has all the modern conveniences including a dishwasher, a clothes washing machine and a corian counter top….. And views towards the charming café la biela.
The master bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed, plenty of storage space and an ensuite with a very special italian designed double basin, suspended loo and bidet as well as bath and multi-faceted shower…. With a very big bright south facing window, onto the park as well.
Bedroom two has twins that could be pushed together and also plenty of space for clothes. Each bedroom has a safe for your passports and cash and both have the delightful park views. The second bathroom has a rain style shower, designed basin and loo.
There is air conditioning throughout – even in the kitchen.
The building has 24 hour security.
The apartment would suit a family of four very nicely or perhaps a couple who want a bit more space.
The highlight has to be the balcony with west facing views over the park.
The location and situation are just amazing. This is the heart of recoleta – perhaps the best neighbourhood in south america!? The famous café bar la biela is across the street, the alvear palace hotel is 2 blocks away, recoleta village mall with shops and cinemas is also 2 blocks. There are a dozen pleasant bars and restaurants very close and even more shops – mostly elegant. A very good supermarket is 2½ blocks away. A buenos aires tourist office is across the street as is a taxi rank. There are four ice cream parlours within 100 yards.
We returned to this most excellent apartment having first stayed here three years ago. It remains a treat. The west facing balcony overlooking the park and the Pilar church is a delight any time of day. The rooms are all elegantly furnished and well proportioned. The main bathroom has the rare benefit of a window, that overlooks our favourite café / bar La Biela. There are well placed mirrors in most rooms.
The immediate neighbourhood – Recoleta – is the most elegant in all of Argentina, let alone BsAs. There is an abundance of eating, drinking, up-market shopping and grocery shopping in the area.
With the taxi rank across the street, and taxis being so reasonable, one can easily get to Palermo, San Telmo and the centre.
Carlos, the architect, who owns this apartment is most charming, helpful and easy to deal with. We told him we wanted to buy an engraved brass plaque and he did a lot of research to guide us to the right shop.
On location, situation, facilities and ease of administration and value we would give this a very high recommendation.
The unit is freshly renovated with Italian taste in floors, lamps and some chairs.
It is clean and quite silent.
The location and view are one of the best you can get in Buenos Aires.
It is across the street of the famous café La Biela and overlooks the entrance to the also renowned cemetery Recoleta. the whole area is very nice and has cops everywhere making it pretty safe.
The owner, Carlos Croci, is a very pleasant gentleman with whom it is nice to deal. We have rented several units during these years and this is by far the best.
The apartment is at the heart of Recoleta, Better impossible.
Need it a little of cleaning, but was a good experience.
The owner was in top of everything, great!!!
We just came back from a week in Buenos Aires where we stayed in Carlos' great apartment in Recoleta. It is perfectly situated and when I say perfectly I mean ideally! The view is splendid on the park and the Recoleta Church. Renown Café Biela is just across the street and the very nice Panera Rosa restaurant is downstairs. Recoleta Cemetery's entrance is left of the Church. The Recoleta mall one block away is top of the line with great stores and good restaurants. On the 3rd floor there is a money exchange service. A large supermarket is also a block down from the apartment. Recoleta is a beautiful area of the city, very safe, with access to large parks, museums, restaurants and cafes. The building has 24h security and a doorman. The apartment is well equipped, air-conditioned,modern and very clean. There are safes in both bedrooms. The balcony is where you watch the world go by. In the evenings there was guitar music in the park and there is an artisanal fair every weekend there. we used the taxi stand downstairs to go to Palermo and San Telmo. We also walked from the apartment to the parks in Palermo including the Japanese Gardens, to San Telmo and to the center. I would definitely stay there again. We found Recoleta the best area to enjoy the city and Carlos' apartment made our stay so enjoyable! Carlos is a charming and engaging host and he is easily reachable at all times. He also arranged our ride back to the airport in the middle of the night at a very reasonable price.
My wife an another traveling companion stayed there for 5 nights. First, the location is wonderful overlooking the park near Recoleta Park. The actual view and experience is better than the photos on the site. After walking on a number of tours and through a number of neighborhoods, it confirmed that this location was the best we could have chosen. Three great ice cream stores within minutes -- taxis outside the door parked at the park (taxis were very inexpensive and we used Uber as well.) The only downside was that the apartment was not well stocked. We ran out of toilet paper in one bathroom and had to buy some and there were not things like paper towels or soap for the dishwasher. These are small but annoying things to have to buy. It was quite comfortable for three of us, one couple and one solo. There are two bathrooms, one very tiny but fine. I would definitely stay there again.
We recently enjoyed a week in this beautiful stylish apartment, perfectly situated in Recoleta. The apartment is very well laid out and all the rooms are spacious, bright and elegantly furnished. Cleanliness and maintenance were impeccable. WiFi worked well too. Security was excellent.
From the lovely balcony you have open views of the Pilar church and just across the road is La Biela (a great cafe featuring motor racing and local hero Fangio).
Owners Graciela & Carlos gave us a warm welcome and were very knowledgeable about the city and surrounding area. I would strongly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to explore Buenos Aires from a very comfortable base.
