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

This is a great boutique hotel. Front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and well equipped. They are actually apartments with kitchens -- we stayed in the studio, which was plenty of space for 2 people. The roofdeck is a beautiful little space (although not much of a view). The pool is small but nice.... More

We stayed 4 nights and the Poetry Building is a good alternative to the more expensive hotels of Bs As (especially in this area), which will not provide you with much better service than an apartment. Helpful and friendly staff (although difficult to get help if you need it on a sunday afternoon). Can also help you with money exchange... More

This can be either a full cleaning of your apartment including a change of linens, or just a change of towels. In a 4 night stay such as yours, we include one of each in your rental price.... More

Having arrived into Buenos Aires from Vancouver, BC after a 36-day cruise we were amazed with the digs at this tremendous BA hotel/apartment. From the front door staff to the apartment itself was exceptional. For those who planning a trip to South America, there is an eBook that is available at the ETSY store that details all the cruise stops... More

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
