We stayed in 5B for a week and had such a great experience. The staff (Irina and Ken) were so helpful in setting up transportation and tours (highly recommend Sandra for a shopping tour) for us and also a Tango show all by email. During our stay they made us feel welcome and were able to easily exchange Us$ for... More

We spend 13 days in BA. As many have said great location, great rooms, great variety of rooms and an especially great staff. It's not a depersonalized corporate hotel experience but much more like having your own apartment in town with some great friends to give you advice on what to do and where to eat etc. There is no...

Great location in Recoleta, near many restaurants, shops, and sights, and in the middle of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. Comfortable apartments and studios. Excellent and helpful staff. As other reviewers have noted, the experience is more like having one's own apartment than being in a hotel. The availability of a full kitchen in every unit... More

We spent five nights at the Poetry Building traveling with my aunt from Texas. We stayed in 2B, a two bedroom loft. It was exceedingly comfortable, well-equipped, and in a great location. The staff is very friendly and helpful in providing recommendations for shopping, restaurants and helping to set up tours. A good grocery store is one block away, excellent... More

We spend 7 nights in a loft apartment at the Poetry Building.we were traveling with 2 teenaged daughters. It was a great experience from start to finish. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. The loft was perfect, spacious, very well appointed and the kitchen had all that we needed. It truly is like living in an apartment in Buenos... More

We arrived at Poetry Building very tired, after traveling three continents in less than 15 days...we were shown an apartment which was not the apartment I thought I had reserved, so I was bummed out by the immediate experience. In no time, Brent (the owner) calmed me down (I was there with my husband and two kids) and started showing... More

The Poetry Building was the perfect place for our first stay in Buenos Aires. The location in the Recoleta neighborhood was great for a short walk/cab ride to all of the sights we wanted to explore. The "room" itself was really more like a nicely decorated, modern one-bedroom apartment with a separate sitting area and kitchen. The relatively small number... More

The overall experience was superb, providing a comforting environment to rest. The furnishings were original, although they may not be to everyone's taste, and everything possibly needed was provided. Even an iPod nano with a ton of preloaded music and a speaker. The location was perfect to venture into town at a moments notice, and the surroundings where enjoyable enough... More

We stayed six nights here in June, and it was nothing short of amazing. The room was big, beautifully decorated and well-equipped, with everything from guide books to a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. Location is excellent - a quiet street within walking distance to the cemetery, but close to Santa Fe for taxis. The best part, by far,... More

We loved our stay at Poetry in BA. Our room was quiet, huge and very comfortable. But what really makes Poetry so very special are the staff. They were just magnificent! Nothing was a bother and our every need and expectation was met and surpassed! While there is no restaurant, there as many close by (highly recommend Brut Nature for... More
