These are actually apartments, I think there is a 3 night minimum. My thoughts are that it is comparable to staying in an apartment in New York City. It's on a street with a little traffic, my room 3C faced the back, was very quiet. AC worked great, Kitchen and living room were small but functional. Hotel Desk was very... More

Excellent location with friendly staff. Paula, Brent, Ken and Irina and others went above and beyond. The building is in great shape (a bit confused by the reviews suggesting it's not quite as nice as the pictures - the place is lovely). Many helpful small details: special towels for the rooftop plunge pool, an organic garden on the roof with... More

I stayed at the Poetry Building while visiting my daughter, who is studying in Buenos Aires. I can only say--it was perfect! The stylish modern yet traditional decor was lovely, location in the Recoleta is wonderful with two excellent cafes yards away and the surreal Recoleta Cemetary..a half mile walk away. We had a small cocktail party for my daughter's... More

This a block of something like a dozen apartments of different sizes and facilities in a restored historic building. Their web site gives a good idea of the place, but the photos there are shall we say well lit and ordinary wear and tear made my room slightly less fantastic than it did in the pictures! There are several different... More

The Poetry building is a small, serviced apartment, block. We pre-booked a car with them from the airport. The on-duty receptionist welcomed us and gave us an introductory tour of our apartment and its facilities. She and her colleagues were very helpful and friendly during our stay, with no language problems. They advised us about local and city facilities etc.... More

Would definitely give these accommodations a perfect score! The location in Recolata was very central, the building and apartments very clean and the staff super accommodating. Every recommendation they made was fantastic! So nice to have more of a "home" feel when you're away as opposed to a big name hotel. Very happy with our choice, would highly recommend.

We stayed at 5B which is a penthouse with a patio and a personal terrace up a staircase. I would not necessarily recommend this unit since there isn't much of a view and as such, we didn't use the outdoor spaces at all. The room and living area were very spacious but the bathroom was on the small side. There... More

We spent four nights at the Poetry on our first trip to Argentina. The apartment was modern and very comfortable. The staff (Irina, Paula and Ken) were very accomodating in making reservations and recommendations. Definitely looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Poetry Building for 4 nights at the beginning of our visit to South America in September 2014, and again for a couple of nights back in Buenos Aires, on our way home. Good location, excellent service, helpful friendly staff - what's not to like? You can even get an impromptu tango lesson in the lobby, if... More
