“Perfect location, well equipped and responsive owners!”
The very well equipped apartment was perfect for the two of us. Extremely secure building in a very safe and well situated neighborhood. Less than 15 minute walks in different directions led us to authentic Argentinian food, excellent sushi and fantastic steaks. Must mention the ever-flowing and affordable Malbec offered just about everywhere we went, fantastic. Great shopping for leather goods within 5 - 10 minutes of walking. Full grocery store is just a block and a half away. Enjoyed the terrace views, especially at night. Plaza Serrano has an interesting open air market on the weekends where we picked up souvenirs at great prices (US dollars were very welcome). No problems and would highly recommend this apartment or, based on the service we received, would have no problem trying or recommending any of the other apartments they own in BA. We'll definitely be back to Argentina!
We are just ending a month-long stay in this apartment. It is on the 12th floor of a modern building so we had great views over the city and and some amazing sunsets. The building is very clean with 24-hour security. The location is superb as you can walk to the Subte and to the many cafes and restaurants in the area. The apartment itself is well equipped with everything you might need during your stay and the bed is really comfortable. Much as I love to cook we did not use the stove once as we ate out all the time. However, there are several good supermarkets nearby as well as numerous produce shops and wine stores. Mike and Erika were great to deal with. They provide lots of detail on the apartment and respond very quickly to any questions or concerns that you may have.
Response from the manager Thanks so much Anne for taking the time to leave feedback. It's so valuable for future guests. We're so happy that you enjoyed our property as much as our other guests have. We think it's a pretty special apartment and agree the location doesn't get any better. Thanks for your trust and business and we look forward to assisting you again in the future. MikesBAapartments
“Wonderful long term stay in Palermo Soho”
My DH and I stayed in this apartment for 8 months while he was in Buenos aires for work. We love love loved this apartment and the area. It was well located and very safe. There are doormen and security guards stationed downstairs in the lobby. All of them were friendly and cordial with us the entire time we were there. The area was so perfect for us because it was in the heart of everything yet it was perfectly quiet. We enjoyed our daily ice cream fix at the corner of the block there is a wonderful ice cream shop. Around the corner is a grocery store and I'd get my daily fix of Starbucks which is a few blocks down. We were supposed to stay one year but had to leave earlier and were sad about that. We could have stayed in this property longer. It is perfect. Mike and his team are absolutely incredible and so responsive. Everything was perfect in the apartment and it's as advertised.
“Excellent location in Palermo Soho”
We were attending a conference in Buenos aires and wanted to stay within walking distance of La Rural. Ps8, located in the Palermo Soho area, proved to be a fantastic option: a well-equipped one bedroom apartment in a building with 24/7 security. This was the first time my husband and I had rented a property and we were quite impressed. Michael Koh was very responsive to all our queries, the property managers in Buenos aires were personable and very helpful. The apartment was clean, comfortable and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. Having a washer / dryer in the apartment was very useful. Excellent restaurants and cafes are located nearby. Would definitely stay here again.
“A great base for exploring Buenos aires!”
Central, convenient, comfortable, safe. Our family of 4 stayed here during our recent visit to Buenos aires and it met our needs exactly. Additional touches like the in-suite washer/dryer and the pool and gym in the building were great.
“A Great Place in a Great Location!!”
We truly enjoyed our stay in the apartment @ 4551 Guatemala - both the location and the apartment itself were great, as were the services provided by Juliana, Luciano, and Diego. The building security staff was very helpful as well, despite the fact that our lack of Spanish was embarrassing. The information booklet provided in the apartment was very helpful as well, but there are a few items that should be considered when the contents are next edited. We found Manchego, the little shop at the corner of Guatemala & Ortiz which sells meats, cheeses, condiments, etc., to be a real find. Also the panaderia on Paraguay across from the Disco market, which provided most of our breakfasts and a couple of light dinners. I have a particular weakness for ice cream, and the shop at the corner of armenia & Guatemala has the best I've had in Buenos aires. We also thought Don Julio's to be the best parrilla we've been to in argentina. You'll note I have a reputation - honestly earned - for being a bit food fixated. You should also know that we were sufficiently impressed with the private car service Ba Luxury Flats provided that we used it to transport us from our hotel in the Retiro area to the airport when we left B/A.

“Great Stay, with a caveat about very poor conceirge services”
Buenos aires was great. Apartment decor is now in need of an update, especially some paint and a bit more attention to cleaning the corners in the washroom so that mold doesn't build up. Conceirge services were a huge disappointment. Agustina emails that if I request food to be in the apartment upon arrival there was a charge for the service that we could put on our credit card upon arrival. Then another person, Marianna emails us demanding this payment before arrival. Then another person Frederico emails us wanting the security deposit, when I already emailed it to Mariana just days before and on the date originally requested. On check in, with yet another person Lucia, we had to wait before entering the apartment at 3 pm since they weren't ready for us. Then my husband checked the refrigerator, and the food was not there. Lucia demanded I give her a list of food items and the original email before calling her office and spoke with agustina. I just thought what if I hadn't made copies of our correspondence? They came up with some lame excuse that it was the holidays and they were very busy, and they had the maid run and purchase the items. When the maid returned I asked for a bill. She said "no bill" no pay. I was taken aback, but thought perhaps this was Luxury Retreats way of apology. I was mistaken. On check out day, Mariana shows up as if she just rolled out of bed. She looked at the review I wrote that included our concerns and said nothing. She just asked about how New Year's went. Regardless she then demands money for our original food items. There is no bill. Just a demand for money. We gave them the money, but we have no idea the real cost of the food. We left feeling ripped off. Not a good feeling to leave the apartment. This is a great facility, just get better people who know the meaning of customer service to manage conceirge services, or else this nice apartment complex will lose return customers.
Response from the manager First of all, I want to thank you for your business. It's valuable and appreciated. Secondly I wanted to sincerely apologize about the poor customer service by my FORMER property manager. I'm happy to say that I have changed property manager's for great customer service as my clients have come to expect. I'm sorry that my former property manager offered such poor customer service. All my clients have loved my property and I'm glad you did as well. I'm happy to report that I now have a new property manager that understands great customer service and how important it is. I hope we can assist you again in the future. MikesBAapartments
“Can't be the value and location”
At a relatively low cost, this apartment has everything you need from a kitchen with all customary amenities to comfortable bedding and great towels to cable tv, a us phone line (Voip) and cell phone for use, and a washer/dryer all in a secured building one block from a large grocery store. And the location is fantastic. I loved being within walking distance of Malba, the Zoo, Botanical Gardens, and Japanese Gardens, not to mention fabulous restaurants and boutiques and the Subte (subway). I'm just surprised I didn't spend more money on shoes from the area shops ... The only downside to the property is that the walls are a little thin so sometimes I could hear the next door neighbors (muffled).
“Great apartment in Excellent location!!!”
I booked this apartment for 12 nights in July 2011 orginally through its owner, Mike after he was recommended to me by another party. As I was coming from australia I was a quite apprehensive in the whole apartment rental process in Ba (i.e paying 50% deposit and balance 15 days before arrival, plus $500 security deposit) given the amount of corruption in argentina and South america. I was quite familar with this as both my parents are from South america! However, after my own research, and my communication with Mike I was confident my reservation with apartmentba was would be ok. I found Mike to be completely trustworthy and the ultimate professional who was very responsive in answering all of my questions regarding the property and the overall reservation process with the property management company, apartmentsba. The reservation process prior to arrival including check-in / check-out with apartmentsba went very smoothly and without a hitch. This apartment is great it has all the facilities you would ever need. It even has a washer/dryer which really came in handy. The location in Palermo Soho can not be beaten it is fantastic! I can now see why is one of the most requested in the city! There are supermarkets, pharmacies, cafes, restaurants, bars and retail outlets etc all within easy walking distance. Check out the bars and eateries in Plaza Cerrano about 5 blocks away. For an authentic parrilla restaurant and excellent steak / cuts of meat try Don Julio which is only 2 blocks away, you won't be disappointed. During my stay I did have a minor issue with the wi-fi internet and refrigerator, however these were promptly attended to by maintenance staff after a call to apartmentsba. Mike has a couple of apartments in the same buidling which is great if you are travelling with a larger family / group. I can not recommend Mike or his properties highly enough. I will be sure to stay in either PS8 or Ps15 when next in Ba!
“Mike's apart is terrific”
Mike's apart is as good as it looks. He equipped it beautifully, it has a beautiful view from the balcony and the bedroom and when I go back I would definitely stay there. Mike is one of the most efficient people I've ever dealt with.
