We immensely enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast centrally located around the corner from Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires. Beautifully furnished rooms as illustrated in the pictures on Trip Advisor a very comfortable stay. Beds are firm and they have very fair house rules to keep the accommodation in its current pristine condition. The welcome letter with the housed rules is personalised with your names which is a nice touch. It is also a nice reference point for the restaurant recommendations Valentyn referred us to in our welcome introduction.
Breakfast consists of fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice to start accompanied by a selection of home made bread (they bake it themselves) served with raspberry jam, marmelade, and dulce de leche. There is usually also something sweet on the side (cookie, cake etc).
The option to experience tango in its truest sense (the way locals dance it rather than at a touristic tango show) was the cinch for us when booking this accommodation and our experience certainly didn't let us down. Admittedly in BA people stay up a lot later (arriving at 10pm at the tango venue felt like we arrived for dinner at 5pm in the US or Australia). The tango place only hit it off at around 2am and we were left wondering how the many old old people (50-80s) were still tango-ing strong at that time. If you do choose to go along to the tango night out, I would highly recommend a decent nap before hand. We left at 3am feeling that we left a little early. Apparently it goes til 5-6am quite easily.
Check out is 12pm, but they tend to give you until 2pm to store your bags at the accommodation. Any time after that I think you need to take your bags with you as I think they might have experienced some difficulties with allowing other guests to store their bags there past that time.
Also, if you plan to go to La Boca, definitely take the 29 bus rather than the 130. We ended up taking the 130 instead as we started off in San Telmo rather than home which leaves you in a not so comfortable area of La Boca! During the day it was fine, but prob not at night!
Sunday market literally on the doorstep of you home was the highlight of our trip. I'd allow for 2-3 hours if you're a keen browser/photographer
