The Poetry building is a small, serviced apartment, block. We pre-booked a car with them from the airport. The on-duty receptionist welcomed us and gave us an introductory tour of our apartment and its facilities. She and her colleagues were very helpful and friendly during our stay, with no language problems. They advised us about local and city facilities etc.... More

Would definitely give these accommodations a perfect score! The location in Recolata was very central, the building and apartments very clean and the staff super accommodating. Every recommendation they made was fantastic! So nice to have more of a "home" feel when you're away as opposed to a big name hotel. Very happy with our choice, would highly recommend.

We stayed at 5B which is a penthouse with a patio and a personal terrace up a staircase. I would not necessarily recommend this unit since there isn't much of a view and as such, we didn't use the outdoor spaces at all. The room and living area were very spacious but the bathroom was on the small side. There... More

We spent four nights at the Poetry on our first trip to Argentina. The apartment was modern and very comfortable. The staff (Irina, Paula and Ken) were very accomodating in making reservations and recommendations. Definitely looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Poetry Building for 4 nights at the beginning of our visit to South America in September 2014, and again for a couple of nights back in Buenos Aires, on our way home. Good location, excellent service, helpful friendly staff - what's not to like? You can even get an impromptu tango lesson in the lobby, if... More

Irina and staff go out of their way to connect you with their incredible city whatever your interest. There are incredible restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. Cafes are everywhere. There... More

Our two kids, my wife and I spent a week at the Poetry Building and loved every minute of it. It begins with the environment of Recoleta, which makes it central to anything you wish to discover and enjoy in Buenos Aires, by foot or quick taxi ride. It continues with the building itself: all the charm of an early... More

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...
