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....

We had a great stay at the Poetry Building in Recoleta. We decided to stay here, as having looked at other hotels in/around Recoleta and Palermo, it offered so much more space at a great price, which is ideal when traveling with a family. The owners have done a wonderful job renovating this old building into modern, comfortable and beautifully... More

Great location for easy breakfast and lunching nearby. As they don't serve any breakfast or meals in the building. However the fully fitted kitchen is enough to get through with cooking and daily foods. Nice touch on the mobile phone lending scheme, you just have to refill the credit and off you go.

We booked this reservation through Expedia with some trepidation and concern that the picture online might be better than the property. What we found on arrival was a wonderfully appointed and charming place with fantastic artwork. We highly recommend the PoetryBuilding. Our suite was actually quiet large and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. We purchased a few breakfast items,... More

We stayed at the Poetry in March and loved it. We arrived with two Argentine friends (one of whom had been a Rotary exchange student in the USA) who had met us at the airport. All four of us were so impressed with the location and the gracious welcome. Ken, at the front desk, took us to our apartment and... More

I have stayed here a few times and every time it has been a lovely experience. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. The décor in the rooms are fantastic. The location is handy, there is a supermarket and nice cafes close by. The area is safe to walk around. You will not regret staying here!

Lovely apartments in a quiet good location. Staff and service fantastic-coffee maker in room, good wifi,list of recommended restaurants and even a mobile phone. Lots of nice little local cafes for breakfast. Special thanks to Rocio for helping with all our restaurant bookings. Tips for meat and wine: Loved Cabana las lillas and campo bravo-v disappointed with la cabrera.

Our stay in studio 1D was very pleasant. The studio was large enough for the two of us with a small but adequate kitchen, a sitting area and a queen size bed. Bathroom had a nice big shower and this studio comes with a small terrace. The decor and colors were not to much in your face or not to... More

I am enjoying my 2nd to last day here at Poetry and I am having a wonderful time. Irina, Ken, Rocio, and Yannina were all so very helpful answering my many emails before and after I booked this trip. The property is well appointed and cozy. Our (my sister and I) apartment (Junior Loft 2A) is delightful. Junior Loft 2A... More

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
