Description from owner


Relive the history of Buenos Aires only 5 blocks from today’s Recoleta village. In 1894, when the country of Argentina was one of the wealthiest in the world with strong European ties, a Frenchman built this elegant residence on Calle Juncal. You can still feel the old world ambiance in the building’s beautiful church-like façade, tall ceilings, and architectural features, but you can also enjoy modern conveniences like a renovated 'American style' kitchen. This large three bedroom apartment (over 200 square meters or 2,200 square feet) has a large master suite with king size bed, walk-in closet and separate bath, shower and toilet areas. There is a second smaller loft bedroom (with 2 twin beds can be made into a King with advance notice) with its own bathroom with shower. An office/study with work desk, broadband internet access and wi-fi connection is tucked into a loft with skylight off the master bedroom. Recently renovated by the same architect who did the Art Hotel, the apartment features 15 foot ceilings in the living and dining areas and master bedroom. The apartment also contains some antiques and features art work by several local artists which we encourage you to discover and enjoy as much as we have. With each trip we make, we add to our collection of Argentine art in the apartment.

The apartment has its own private, elegant entrance with marble stairs up to the second floor (considered the 1st floor in Argentina - but there is NO elevator). World class restaurants, cafes, and gourmet grocery and wine shops are all in the neighbourhood and within easy walking distance. Two blocks away you can enjoy the café lined Plaza Mitre for an early morning coffee before setting out into one of the most walkable cities in the world; three blocks in the other direction, you’ll find a Metro stop on Avenida Santa Fe. And with the apartment's central location in the city, everything Buenos Aires has to offer is a short taxi ride away. The famous Recoleta cemetery is a 10-15 minute walk.

Please note on some days when we have a guest checking in and out on the same day, the maid will not always finish the cleaning until 4pm, but you may check in earlier on this understanding. Some costs are applicable for check in or out of hours. Normal check in is 2pm to 6pm Housekeeping is included for stays over 15 days. For shorter stays you will be required to do your own laundry. There are numerous same day "Lavanderias" within a few minutes of the apartment. There is a small washing machine in the apartment laundry and drying rack but it is only suitable for small clothing items (not bed linen).
