A beautiful apartment in a great location. The "apartments" were spacious and very comfortable. Nice touches a complete kitchen, coffee and water. The staff is on my top 10 as far as hospitality and accommodation. This is my -place in BA and I will never shop for places again.

This is a lovely place to stay in an excellent location in BA. The rooftop pool was rather cool in April, but that didn't stop our daughter spending most afternoons splashing around. Our apartment was really well presented and we'd recommend Poetry to anyone wanting more space and independence than a regular hotel room.

Attractive building with 'shabby chic' interior decor that gave the place character. Plenty of tourist information available. Convenient location. Small supermarket, bakery, cafes, and cheap laundry service all within a few minutes' walk away. Apartment much more spacious than a similarly priced hotel room. Rooftop swimming pool attractive and fun for the children (too cold for us at this time... More

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

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...

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.
