Arriving at Paz's place was like showing up at the house of a best friend I didn't yet know I had. Paz is a wonderfully kind-hearted, open, fun, easy-going person that really understands people. I showed up overwhelmed and broken-hearted, trying to begin my life anew in Buenos Aires, and she made me feel like I could absolutely handle everything... More

Paz is a wonderful host. Her flat is centrally located, walking distance from many sites and she loans guests use of refillable subway/bus cards for those places farther out. She will help you organize your stay and get to wherever you want to go in the city. We were very comfortable and I would definitely return on my next trip... More

Could not have been happier with Yira Yira and the lovely Paz! The guest house is a beautiful apartment in a 100 year old building in Recoleta, BA's most elegant neighborhood. All the major sites are in walking distance; the area is safe and not too touristy, but still feels very much at the center of things. Paz provides a... More

Thanks to Paz, our trip to BA was wonderful. Her home is a lovely place to stay-- centrally located, warm, comfortable and filled with charm. We enjoyed the breakfasts, conversations with Paz and her other guests. Paz helped with maps, directions, tips on what to see and where to go, and wonderful stories about life in BA. Paz was a...

Paz's great service and the central location of her house to the major tourist attractions made our trip to Buenos Aires a wonderful memory. She helped us retrieve our missing luggage,offered the tips for restaurant, food and public transportation. We plan to stay at her place again next year when we take kids to visit Argentina.

This is a great B&B, situated in a really convenient and safe area of Recoleta, with good access to all of the major sights either walking or by public transport. The B&B is really comfortable and relaxing, with 2 shared bathrooms (never a problem, with only 4 bedrooms) and shared living room and patio area for guests to use. I... More

Paz stayed up waiting for us when our flight was diverted, then late the next night until we finally arrived. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The flat is very central, walking distance to the relocotta and in the midst of shops and bars . Breakfast is when you would like it, home from home .

We found Yira Yira Guesthouse in the Lonely Planet and are we ever glad we did. The two of us, a retired but active couple, spent 10 days in the great city of Buenos Aires and a big part of the wonderful time we had was due to owner Paz and her lovely home. By the time we left, we... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
