What Past Guests Are Saying
Excellent apartment, fantastic location, great friendly service.
I spent one month at this particular apartment whilst on my medical student elective in Buenos aires. Great location, directly opposite a great English speaking pub - The Gibraltar. Supermarkets 30secs up the road and taxi's constantly passing. The apartment is approx 2 blocks (2mins) away from Defensa - the main street of San Telmo, 5 minutes away from Plaza Dorrego, 10 minutes away from both Florida, Microcentro and Puerto Madeiro on foot. 15-20mins cab journey from Palermo, Recoleta, Internal airport (Jorge Newbury) and the Retiro Bus Station.
The 2nd floor apartment itself is fantastic. Great size for 2 people, all desirable working white goods - fridge, cooker, shower, AC/heater, TV, wireless, speakers etc, nice outdoor terrace and weekly cleaner. There however was not a safe, although to be honest I didn't feel that there was an outright indication for one. Just hide your essentials properly.
The ground floor of the building conveniently houses Casa San Telmo - the company which owns the property and others in San Telmo. A very helpful and approachable team. Happy to arrange airport transfers, give general advice and deal with any rental related issues quickly and efficiently.
I my months experience, these guys were great and the apartment was ideal.I can't vouch for any of their other properties, but this particular apartment comes highly recommended.

Thank you so much
Great Location/ Friendly and Helpful Staff
We had a wonderful time in argentina. It's a great place located in beautiful San Telmo. The staff, especially Mercedes is very welcoming and helpful. We would stay here again in a second.

Colonial charm in a great location
We chose Casa San Telmo because of its great location, and being an apartment that reflects the history of this amazing city.
The location is about a fifteen minute walk to the Microcentro and less than ten minutes to a Subte station. Although some people question the saftey of the area, we never felt at risk. With a police station less than a block away and always people on the streets anytime of day or night, this was never a consideration, ever. The apartment has supermarkets and a market close by, a whole host of bars and restaurants to choose from and a "wash and fold" laundry one minute away.
The apartment had everything you could want, although there was no stereo or DVD player as mentioned in the description. We had one problem with the WiFi, but this was fixed immediately ; having the apartment management in the office below was very useful and the staff were extremely helpful and concerned that our experience was positive. The noise of the traffic did not affect us as the bedroom was at the back of the apartment and not an issue that would put me off the apartment.
To wake up and walk into the living area with its wall of huge French doors with shutters, gaze at the high brick ceiling and have a coffee/wine on the terrace make this apartment more charming then many of its contemporaries.
this apartment will always be a part of our memories in Ba!
The apartment was great! During the course of our stay, we truly came to fully appreciate the great location of Peru 886 as well as the quaintness and absolute charm of the apartment. It became a home away from home, particularly due to the hospitality of the staff. The only issues for us were that the apartment was a bit dusty, which was a little hard on us because we all suffer from asthma and allergies, but this was ameliorated by opening the balcony windows. We also could have used more towels during the week and the sinks had lots of dirt in them when we checked in. Also, the two beds upstairs were quite uncomfortable. But none of this was at all an issue enough to take away from our highly positive experience here. We all agree we would strongly recommend this place to anyone and would definitely state how welcoming and friendly everyone was. Thank you so very much!
La atención fue excelente, aunque reportamos el mal funvionamiento de un enchufe electrico múltiple y no fue substituido o arreglado. El apartamento esta excelentemente localizado y está muy bien equipado. Lo que ma nos gusto fue su ubicación y lo que no nos agradó es que fuera ruidoso durante la noche, pero vale la pena este inconveniente!
Gracias, tuvimos muy buena estancia y esperamos regresar pronto.
But apartment is really noisy. Even with all the doors and windows closed, we sometimes found it hard to talk in the main room.
The bathroom is also impossibly tiny and very difficult to get into.
Otherwise, great area and very spacious.
Bit of Paradise in Buenos Aires
We had the perfect getaway with the ideal hostess during our stay in Buenos Aires. Mercedes, the landlady (also a tango dancer in B.A.) made our trip wonderful. She introduced us to the "milongas".... organized tango dances, and guided us to the best of the area. The Apartment is lovely, and set in the heart of the barrio of San Telmo, the soul of the city! We were quickly drawn in to the amazing culture. We were able to walk out our front door and be in the midst of a postcard.... a bustling city, with the architecture of Paris, the language of old Spain, the foods of Italy, and the heart of the Argentine people.... ready to be your family away from home. There are fantastic restaurants, wine shops, and cafes on every corner, and the coolest street fair each Sunday in the square and streets of the neighborhood. We will be back! This is not a place for the walking impaired, as one wants to walk everywhere (and the rugged sidewalks make it challenging!) The prices on food and entertainment are quite reasonable, and we were thrilled with our accommodations for the price.
