Great small hotel in a very nice neighborhood close to the city center and attractions. Excellent customer service: hotel staff replied to all my emails, booked all requested activities, helped with currency exchange and restaurant recommendations. Apartment where we strayed (4A) had a nice balcony, where we had breakfast and fully equipped kitchen. Organic garden is very nice: tomatoes from... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I have stayed. Not only is it a great place, it is run by some great people - everyone is so warm and helpful, and the location can't be beat. Before I booked this hotel I could not decide weather to stay here or palmero soho, but once I got to the... More

Fortunately this was not too good to be true…..It was the real thing!! I booked with ease after speaking with Brent the gracious owner. The photos are spot on…charming, well-appointed with all amenities including coffee,tea, sugar, filters, paper products, dish soap sponge, salt, pepper, shampoo, and conditioner. The security was A1 and there was always someone at the desk until... More

Found this little gem here on Trip Advisor. Amazing location. Great value. Top notch customer service. We will definitely be back. Ken is an American studying in BA and helped run the front desk. He was amazing. Movie night is a nice touch where they project American classics on the building next door. Gorgeous apartment. In great shape and super... More

We spent our first night here. The owners/service staff at Poetry were incredibly helpful with just about everything. The room was clean, spacious and decorated in a cool/hip Buenos Aires kind of way - we were incredibly comfortable. My children loved the pool - I loved the ambiance. We felt safe and this was our "home base". Would return again,... More

Spent 3 nights in Buenos Aires and loved our stay at the Poetry building. The neighborhood was ideal for exploring, tourist attractions, and dining. The staff made dinner reservations for us at our request and we loved every restaurant they picked. They were always available for anything we needed and each staff member had a unique and charming personality! The... More

We staying in a studio apartment (3A) in the Poetry Building for 10 days and loved every minute—this studio was very spacious for 3 people and we felt extremely comfortable. Although apartment 3A faces a busy street the dual-pane windows/doors kept out the noise making the apartment super quiet. The apartment had great amenities including a full kitchen (with coffee...

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

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.
