I was at the Poetry Building with a friend & I can't wait to go back with my family! The service from the staff was exceptional. We really felt like we had found a special place to stay in BA. It was really handy that they could provide some exchange to the local currency on our arrival. It was in... More

This is the first review I've ever written on TripAdvisor but my experience was so good I feel compelled to share. To begin with, the building is perfectly located relative to accessing the many things that Buenos Aires has to offer. You can tell that whoever renovated the building itself took a lot of pride in preserving the old school... More

Cozy, chic apartment close to the University of Buenos Aires Medical School. Conveniently located, expertly decorated, comfortable and elegant. European sophistication with modern elegance. The on- site concierges were fabulous, helping with taxis, figuring out best order for a series of events or tours, directions to grocery store, They had a solution for every problem or question I presented that...

1st time in Buenos Aires but after 5 days realized that we could not have chosen a more convenient and comfortable place to stay. Our 1 bedroom apartment was stylish, and provided all you need in a city which encourages you to eat out. Multi -lingual staff most helpful and groceries, bakeries, cafes and restaurants all within easy walking distance... More

I book it for a business trip which it is tricky as the cancellation fee is up to 50% of reservation; nevertheless it is a great choice if you want a different alternative vs a traditional hotel. Good: feels more like home, friendly staff. Bad: no room service, room is not cleaned on a daily basis and corridor smelled funny.

Dear Jaime, We appreciate your patronage. We have had many returning business travelers as our guests who also recognize our difference from a traditional hotel. We are happy to hear you felt at home and that you liked our staff. We put a lot of effort and love into what we do and what we offer: rooms 2 to 3... More

We spent a week in a 1 bedroom apartment and are very impressed! The multi-lingual staff is perceptive, friendly and helpful. They were kind enough to allow us early check at 10:00 a.m. The Poetry Building also offers a full concierge desk and inexpensive laundry service. The location is perfect and the neighborhood has everything you might need. Groceries, bakeries,... More

I am not a person who writes generous reviews for no reason. I take reviews in Trip Advisor very seriously because I often rely on them. Having said that... This has to be one of the best places I have stayed in recently anywhere in the world. It is an Aparthotel where every apartment is different so make sure you... More

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Poetry Building offers 18 exquisite and professionally furnished apartments specifically designed for short-term vacation rental. They are beautifully appointed with all the comforts and amenities you have at home. Poetry is located in Recoleta, one of Buenos Aires' most desired and exquisite neighborhoods, surrounded by parks, cafes, restaurants, and shopping. The building itself evokes the romance that is Buenos Aires. It is firmly rooted in Argentina’s history as the former home of one of its most famous and aristocratic families, the Peralta Ramos. Many of the original architectural lines and much of the beautiful grace of the original 100 year old mansion have been restored. Much effort has been taken to meticulously update Poetry’s interiors to interpret and integrate current trends with modern demands. Our staff speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese. We are located in the office on the ground floor of the building. We offer:Privacy without solitude. Luxury without stuffiness or attitude and assistance without intrusiveness. ... more   less
