We arrived at Poetry Building very tired, after traveling three continents in less than 15 days...we were shown an apartment which was not the apartment I thought I had reserved, so I was bummed out by the immediate experience. In no time, Brent (the owner) calmed me down (I was there with my husband and two kids) and started showing... More

The Poetry Building was the perfect place for our first stay in Buenos Aires. The location in the Recoleta neighborhood was great for a short walk/cab ride to all of the sights we wanted to explore. The "room" itself was really more like a nicely decorated, modern one-bedroom apartment with a separate sitting area and kitchen. The relatively small number... More

The overall experience was superb, providing a comforting environment to rest. The furnishings were original, although they may not be to everyone's taste, and everything possibly needed was provided. Even an iPod nano with a ton of preloaded music and a speaker. The location was perfect to venture into town at a moments notice, and the surroundings where enjoyable enough... More

We stayed six nights here in June, and it was nothing short of amazing. The room was big, beautifully decorated and well-equipped, with everything from guide books to a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. Location is excellent - a quiet street within walking distance to the cemetery, but close to Santa Fe for taxis. The best part, by far,... More

We loved our stay at Poetry in BA. Our room was quiet, huge and very comfortable. But what really makes Poetry so very special are the staff. They were just magnificent! Nothing was a bother and our every need and expectation was met and surpassed! While there is no restaurant, there as many close by (highly recommend Brut Nature for... More

We stayed two nights in March. The hotel is in an upmarket, safe neighbourhood. We wandered round day and night and always felt safe. It is an easy, short walk to the Recoleta Cemetery and just around the corner from a number of excellent cafes and restaurants. The rooms were large, clean and quiet. The hotel is relatively inexpensive compared... More

We spent 5 wonderful days at the Poetry in Buenos Aires. And the Poetry had an important contribution to our positive experience, making us feeling like at home. There is no deception at all, the flats and the Poetry overall, are warm, comfortable and lovely as you can see from the pictures and read in their descriptions of the web... More

I cannot say enough good things about Poetry. My husband and I stayed there on the first leg of our trip, and it was perfect - great location, absolutely fantastic staff (Irina was wonderful!), and a lovely atmosphere. We stayed in one of the penthouses and loved it, as it was very nice to have the terrace space. Would recommend... More

We booked the Poetry Building after reading the many great reviews of it on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. About a week before we arrived, we were e-mailed a list of attractions and goings-on during our upcoming stay; a nice, welcoming touch. The day we arrived in B.A. we got in a bit earlier than expected (11:00a), so our room... More

Wonderful boutique hotel, with thoughtful amenities -- a mobile phone that can be loaded with credit, a well-stocked apartment with the simple things I needed (scissors to trim the ends off of flowers for the vase? check! in-room safe with digital password? check! ipod with great mood music? check!) and a truly helpful staff to orient me to the city....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Poetry Building offers 18 exquisite and professionally furnished apartments specifically designed for short-term vacation rental. They are beautifully appointed with all the comforts and amenities you have at home. Poetry is located in Recoleta, one of Buenos Aires' most desired and exquisite neighborhoods, surrounded by parks, cafes, restaurants, and shopping. The building itself evokes the romance that is Buenos Aires. It is firmly rooted in Argentina’s history as the former home of one of its most famous and aristocratic families, the Peralta Ramos. Many of the original architectural lines and much of the beautiful grace of the original 100 year old mansion have been restored. Much effort has been taken to meticulously update Poetry’s interiors to interpret and integrate current trends with modern demands. Our staff speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese. We are located in the office on the ground floor of the building. We offer:Privacy without solitude. Luxury without stuffiness or attitude and assistance without intrusiveness. ... more   less
