The Poetry Building was an excellent place to stay when we were in Buenos Aires! The room was lovely, with a balcony and kitchen, and the staff was incredibly helpful. It's in a nice central location close to many things we wanted to see and do. We were also able to extend our stay one more night with no problem.... More

Just got back from B.A. We were there with a group for a friend's birthday, and we all rented apartments in the Poetry Building for one week. Can't say enough good things about the place. The building and the apartments were nicer in-person than in the photos. Our studio was comfortable, was quiet at night, and was very spacious for... More

Pros: Location - beautiful neighbourhood, great bakeries, supermarkets, etc close by. 5 - 10 walk to recoletta cemetery... We didn't use public transport, walked everywhere, and caught a couple of easy Taxis in the evening. Security: Very secure building and neighbourhood. Room: We stayed in Room 4B, didn't end up using our private balcony as the intimate pool area was... More

My husband and I spent 8 nights, first week of November in a one bedroom suite 4B. As I recall or stay, my only complaint is that we are not back at the Poetry Building right now! This type of accomodation is exactly what we look for, but most often cannot find. It offers the privacy and independence of an... More

The Poetry Building is perfectly located in Recoleta, where we had a ton of great dining, sightseeing and nightlife options, while feeling completely safe. The first thing we noticed (besides the beautiful decoration in the lobby and the rooms) was our "welcome package" from the amazing staff. On our kitchen counter was a bottle of wine (Malbec, of course) along... More

This place is perfect- we spent a ton of time on the rooftop deck (well 4th story but still sunny and high up). The pool was perfect to cool off and loved the honesty bar up there- very convenient and fairly priced too! We stayed in 3b and the architecture and decor of the room was stunning- they thought of...

Like others reviewers, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Poetry Building. We loved the amazing guest experience from the welcoming atmosphere to our well-furnished 2A apartment, the Recoleta location, and the ease of access in getting around BA from there. Our stay was all the more wonderful thanks to the hospitable and friendly staff-Ken, Irina, and others-who went out... More

Our family of 5 loved the Poetry Building. The 2 apartments provided us with enough room to be comfortable and rest after a long, hot day in BA. The rooms are well-appointed, kind-of funky looking; the staff is kind and helpful; and the location can't be beat. Very central and lots to do nearby. The rooftop pool and the organic... More

Located in safe neighbourhood with grocery store on the block behind and pastry shop within 50 feet. Lots of restaurant choices in the area. Recoleta Cemetery with green space and Recoleta Shopping Mall is 4 blocks away. One bedroom apt 4B with patio was large, brightly decorated, faced Junin Street, had a full kitchen, very comfortable queen bed and separate... More

From first to last, our experience at the Poetry Building was all we had hoped and more. The staff gave us a warm welcome and everyone was happy to make suggestions and help with logistics for everything from polo to tango, restaurants, and transportation. Our room, a studio with a patio, was tastefully furnished and comfortable. We bought breakfast things... More
