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

Our choice to stay in the Poetry Building was a good one. Our apartment was charming, spacious, clean and functional. Our room faced the street and we weren't worried by road noise. Disappointingly it was too cold to sit on the balcony, but it was winter! Cafes and restaurants are accessible but we appreciated being able to purchase food locally... More

My husband and I stayed in the Poetry Building for three nights and just loved it! Apartments are large and a unique combination of modern facilities and amenities with a touch of 'old world' in the antique furnishings. The location in Recoleta was exceptional with many restaurants nearby and only a 10 minute walk to the famous Recoleta Cemetery, as... More

This property is conveniently located in Recoleta, close to food and shopping. There is a superb bakery four doors down and 24 hour corner convenience stores at either corner. Taxis are abundant and averaged around $7-9 USD to get to most major attractions (for our family of four). Tea Connection, a small cafe down the street, is an absolute must... More

I believe that the Poetry Building is probably an absolutely wonderful place to stay, just not in the winter. They were undergoing some pretty heavy renovations and the place was fairly empty when we were there. Some of those renovations were right next to our room and kept us from napping after a long day. However, the owner did reimburse... 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
