“Calm oasis in the middle of Buenos Aires”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I really enjoyed so much my stay in Tesorito. Fernanda and her husband were so so welcoming, helpful and nice. The rooms just great, so clean and spacious. Birds singing in the garden, wondeful breakfast. I was working in the tourism fair so really enjoyed this tranquil place, also it is well connected to the city. A peaceful osasis in hustle and bustle of a huge town:)

After flying all night we arrive at Tesorito tired and out of sorts. Fernanda greeted us and showed us around and we felt like we had entered the home of an old friend. About the place, the layout is wonderful, it is in a great location, very accommodating, the best breakfast in Argentina (out of 16!) and very clean. The hosts were about as warm and caring as a people can be. They made for a truly relaxing time. Please don't hesitate to stay here. The photos are accurate.

Leo and i were on a trip back to BAs for two weeks to visit his family nearby and stayed here for 11 nights. We chose Tesorito because it looked and sounded from reviews somewhere a little quirky. We weren't disappointed. Beautiful colours, paintings, lovely furniture and a sweet little walled garden were exactly what we were hoping for. We weren't to know though, that our hosts would be so helpful, kind and unobtrusive. Fernanda and Ahmed essentially let us use their lovely home while remaining in the background if we needed them. The breakfasts were a delicious Arge/Euro mix and always very fresh. Just forget that diet until you get home :) Special thanks from me for supplying soya milk too. Others have already described the brekkie in detail so i won't.
The rooms were all scrupulously clean, the bed was comfy and the bedding was changed regularly. We both slept better than usual here! Do bring earplugs for Friday/Saturday nights in BAs though. Oh, and as Leo had passport business to attend to he was very glad of the little safe. We also made good use of the fridge in the bedroom, where there is plenty of storage space. We were supplied with bathrobes/dressing gowns and slippers as well as the regular towel change. Although we'd brought our own hairdryer, there is a good one there.
Lots of books/Cd's/DVD's and two TV's enabling Leo to watch his beloved River games live. Aircon in the bedroom/free local calls. Hope this is helpful to other prospective guests. We'd have no hesitation in returning to this lovely accommodation with such kind hosts and set in a pleasant area of the city. Laura and Leo, New Forest, England

We really enjoyed our stay in Tesorito. Fernanda and Ahmed had great recommendations on things to do, places to eat and helpful with anything else that might come up during your stay. The breakfasts were amazing, Fernanda really went out of her way to make each day start out great. Highly recommended for anyone staying in Buenos Aires.

We booked this on the strength of the place's Tripadvisor reviews and we are extremely glad we did. The owner, Ahmed, couldn't do enough to help us, and was happy to look after our suitcases whilst we stayed at another place (just because Tesorito was full those nights!)

The B&B is effectively a homestay - I think there are only 1 or 2 rooms. But this shouldn't put you off - you have total privacy, en suite facilities and unlimited use of a beautiful living room with teas, stereo and Argentina/Buenos Aires travel guides.There's also free wifi.

The breakfasts are what make this place wonderful. There's always tea or coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, bread, croissants and usually scrambled eggs or an omelette too. We didn't need lunch most days as a result!

Excellent place to stay - highly recommended, particularly for the lovely furnishing, fresh lilies in the bedroom, and the cute French furniture.

Stayed at Tesorito B&B 2 nights at the beginning and 2 nights at the end of my trip to Argentina in November and felt immediately at home in this charming place. Fernanda and Ahmed were perfect hosts and really friendly and helpful. The room is in a lovely apartment with fine decorations and also a small courtyard if you want to relax outside. The bedroom itself is big and very comfortable with a high ceiling, fridge, safe and plently of cupboard space and the bathroom is also very well equipped.
The location was ideal for me - very close to a metro station and convenient for both Palermo, Recoleta and also the centre of the city. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby but the apartment itself is set back from the road so is very quiet.
Finally, I have to mention Fernanda's superb breakfast, the very best by far that I had in Argentina - eggs, cold meats, yogurt, fruit, fresh rolls and bread and delicious coffee. Absolutely amazing! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone wanting a "home from home" in Buenos Aires.

Stayed here for only one night but would certainly come back - lovely room with pretty courtyard to sit in, comfortable bed and good bed linen, very clean and first class breakfast.
Run by delightful couple who made us feel most welcome. Location excellent for public transport and Palermo.
