Thank you, TripAdvisor, for steering us to this wonderful place. We spent about 4 days at Poetry as part of our honeymoon to Argentina. We felt so comfortable and happy at Poetry. The staff is incredible, and they provide you with everything you need - a helpful tip sheet, local recommendations for everything from food to laundry, and even a... More

Pros Great value and great quality Well located Friendly and genuine staff Cons None really - but if I had to be nitpicky, addition of a few international news channels would probably be the only one (BBC, Euronews, France24, NHK World, etc.) The entire team at Poetry really made our stay special. We were traveling with a 4 month old... More

The staff is the strongest suit of this hotel. Without exception they were not just coldly efficient, civil or courteous, but warm, cheerful and determined to be successful in their assistance. (All front desk staff speak English fluently, and the owner is from the US.) The hotel itself is well located and lovely, decorated personally by the owner. We used... More

Unless you are attending a meeting or conference, there's absolutely no reason to stay in a big hotel in Buenos Aires. This is especially true when you can stay at the Poetry building, which is warm, friendly, stylish, secure, and in a great location. Owner is great and clearly loves this building, the team who works there, and the guests.... More

I stayed at the hotel with my family the first weekend of June. I found the Poetry Bldg Apt I stayed in (2A) to be gorgeous. The staff was amazing and helpful at every turn. I will definitely stay there next time I am in Buenos Aires.

The building is charming and the location is great but the apartment left me disappointed. Walls were in urgent need of a fresh coat of paint, sofas, curtains, and rugs were old, dirty and needed to be replaced a long time ago. There was mold in the shower and the tile floor was depressingly beaten up. Linens and towels were... More

I have personally inspected the apartment you stayed in and I will go as far as to say that your particular apartment was painted 3 months before your stay, the... More

Recommended to me by word of mouth on a previous visit, this hotel proved to be the best I've ever stayed in Buenos Aires. The staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The location is ideal: close to just about everything needed for a comfortable longer stay (11 days in my case), and yet quiet. Within walking distance of several... More

My wife and I booked this hotel for our 5 year anniversary trip. The staff arranged everything to perfection from our arrival at 3Am to every event we wanted to do. The staff is as advertised, they are helpful but no intrusive. The hotel room was spacious and the amenities were perfect. The garden at top where you can pick... More

There is never any doubt where we will stay each time we return to BA as the Poetry Building has truly become our home away from home. On our fourth stay we choose a loft as the fall weather is not conducive to sitting on your balcony. The apartment is really spectacular with high ceilings and is very spacious and... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
