Enjoy the best that Buenos Aires has to offer in this luxurious, spacious and tranquil apartment. Perfect for groups, families or couples looking to live and fall in love with Buenos Aires!
This elegant Parisian style apartment overlooks Plaza de Congreso in the heart of Buenos Aires. Built around 1900 as a residence for diplomats at the Argentinean Congress, it has recently undergone a $100,000 USD rejuvenation project.
The apartment now strikes a subtle harmony combining the character and charm of itâ€™s colonial heritage, with the style and comfort of modern living.
The apartment has a unique presidential location overlooking Plaza del Congreso and the Argentinean Congress. This leads down Avenida de Mayo to Casa Rosada or the Presidentâ€™s Palace.
From the apartmentâ€™s two front balconies you can sometimes see the presidentâ€™s motorcade passing, and where previous presidents such as Evita Peron would have come.
It is within easy walking distance of Buenos Aires main attractions such as Av 9 de Julio (Obelisco & Teatro Colon); San Telmo; Av Florida (Galeria Pasifico shopping mall); Puerto Madero (modern promenade and cafes); and Recoleta (Evita Peron cemetery).
Despite itâ€™s central location, Congreso is a safe, friendly, residential neighbourhood with many cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, cinemas & theatres nearby.

When we arrived in Buenos aires after a long flight, the apartment was a welcome surprise. It was beautifully decorated and very spacious. We felt like we were staying in a 5 star luxury penthouse suite, but at a fraction of the price.
We had heard that Buenos aires can be a noisy city. However the apartment was quiet and tranquil, so we could escape the city bustle and sleep well at night.
The location was ideal, as everything was nearby. We especially liked the view of the argentinean Congreso from the kitchen window!
Thanks Leticia for all your help and advice. We hope to come back again soon!
Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely having you to stay.
Best wishes, Leticia

The apartment is located next to the argentinean Congreso, which turned out to be a great place to stay, as most places we wanted to go were near by. It's also a pretty glamorous location. It's not everyday you can say you stayed at the Congress!
The apartment was immaculately decorated and absolutely enormous! Far larger than any apartment I have seen in Europe! In total there were 6 of us staying, but we all had plenty of space.
It was lovely just taking it easy in the sunny conservatory.
The owners were really friendly and helpful. I can definitely recommend this place as a great place to stay.

Lovely apartment, Great location!
My wife and I stayed in this apartment during a short summer holiday in Argentina as a change from staying in hotels.
This turned out to be a good move. The apartment was to notch, like staying in a large suite at a 5 star hotel but at a fraction of the price!
I love historic buildings and this place had lots of character, such as the highest ceiling I have ever seen, the original hardwood doors, two balconies and two entrances. A main entrance and presumably an ex-servants entrance!
The apartment was cool and quiet, especially as Buenos Aires was quite hot and bustly at the time.
The downtown location in Congreso proved to be a great base for exploring the city mainly by foot, though we did take a few taxis which were relatively cheep and easy to flag down.
