We stayed at The Poetry Building in April, 2013 and thought it was lovely, excellent location and friendly, caring staff. So, when we returned to Buenos Aires in March, 2015, of course we decided to stay here again. Once again our expectations were exceeded! Every apartment at the Poetry is unique. On our last visit we stayed in 4B, a... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Poetry Building in Buenos Aires. As a first time traveler to BsAs and a non-Spanish speaker, I gravitated toward this hotel rather than rent an apartment and I was so glad I did. Conveniently located in the heart of Recoleta, I found it easy to walk both day and night. The hotel... More

Buenos Aires is a very busy metropolis, bustling away 24/7, so when you can find a place like this, in a great position, a safe area, and sooooo quiet.....just take it! Whilst researching our South American trip, I came across this gem through TA, and thought we need to start off in a great place....Poetry Building did not disappoint. On... More

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
