We could only stay one night on 15 March 2020, our first night in BA, before being exiled back to Europe. We received a very helpful and friendly welcome. The room was a spacious small apartment and with self catering facilities. It is located in a smart part of town with many pleasant neighbourhood restaurants nearby. There is a supermarket around the cornr if you wish to self-cater. We would certainly return if we are ever allowed back into the country.
Charming boutique short term rental apartments in the very desirable Recoleta section of town. Walking distance to lots of very good restaurants and the famous cemetery where Eva Peron is buried.Comfortable bed, quiet, plenty of room, accommodating service, friendly and helpful staff. Six of us heading out on a cruise stayed here for two nights prior to departure. At our request, the hotel set up a wine and tapas party on the rooftop patio by the small dipping pool. Opened it up to others and it turned out to be quite a success with a nice choice of wines and a knowledgeable sommelier providing commentary and so much food we then skipped dinner. Great party.
We stayed here for one week. It is a wonderful place with elegant rooms and lofts. I cannot say enough about the staff. They were exceptional and very helpful. They provided a tango night for their guests which included lessons, demonstration and fabulous wine and food. It was a great evening. Location is excellent. You can walk to everything. It was a great experience for our first visit to Buenos Aries.
Everything was perfect, we booked the largest apartment with loft (1B) for 3 adults for 5 nights. We only wish that there was a bigger bathroom and closed shower area, because the bathroom had an open shower which would overflow and the water would go all over the floor in front of the toilet and door making it very slippery. Other than that, the service, concierge, location, apartment itself (air-conditioned), cleanliness, rooftop dipping pool/terrace, laundry service was perfect. We loved the quiet neighborhood, we walked to the cemetery area and back several times, we even walked to Don Julio in Paloma and to the Obelisco and Teatro Colon on Ave. 9 de Julio. That beautiful bookshop El Ateneo on Santa Fe Ave was just 5 minutes walk. There were restaurants, cafes, pastry shops, bakeries, beer bars and a supermarket around the corner from the apartment. It was very convenient. We would definitely stay there again if we ever went back to BA!…
We had two rooms and stayed two nights. The apartments are nice and spacious, obviously bigger than a standard hotel room. The staff we interacted with were always very pleasant. The building is very old, and although remodeled, you can tell that it is old and some things still outdated. The reason for 3 stars is that it is very overpriced. Yes I knew what the price was ahead of time, but was expecting more. It really only comfortably sleeps 2 people. We had 4 people in each room, and those that slept on the sofa couch did not have a comfortable rest. The sofa mattress is really not even a mattress, it is so thin. We stayed at two other places during our visit to Buenos Aires - the first was less than 1/2 the price of this place, same size, more modern, ideal location. This one also had two real beds, not a sofa bed, nice large balcony. The 2nd was the same amount of this place, but is 5 star, also had two real beds, nice large balcony, includes breakfast, and has many more amenities. The pool is so small, cannot doing any swimming in it. The cleaning ladies must have turned the stove on one day when they were cleaning my room. When we came back to the room at night, it smelled so so bad of gas. Was making me feel sick. The stove knobs were not working so I just had to figure out how to turn off the gas completely. I was really nervous sleeping in the room that night with my kids. So in a nutshell, our stay was fine, but we probably would not stay here again, the high cost is not justified. Really there are no amenities.…
We stayed at Poetry for 5 nights in room 1B, which is a lovely room. Everyone is wonderful that works at the property. The transfer driver, the porter and all the front desk staff are magnificent. They helped us order Christmas dinner as well as made numerous reservations for us. The building is in a great area and completely secure. Additionally, the outside pool area is a nice extra touch to have in a large city. Definitely a hidden gem!
Everything about this hotel is great, the size of the apartments, the staff very helpful , the location brilliant !! Near to very good restaurants. Just a few minutes away from Santa Fé road for very good shopping.
Great location in Recoleta, safe neighborhood, courteous staff. Aparts are well kept and spacious. Wifi is fast and seamless. We were pleased with our stay and would recommend Poetry Building to anyone looking for a nice space in a centrally located and desirable neighborhood. Check out our photos so you can see what we mean about the room.
Just finished our week at the Poetry Building, and all the positive reviews are correct ! We had Loft Apt 2D, which was situated at back of the building, overlooking an area between buildings. Not the most spectacular outlook, but very very quiet. We took advantage of the pre-purchased grocery service, and it was great to have these items already in the apartment when we arrived after the long flight from Auckland. There’s a supermarket called Disco in the street behind Poetry, just make sure you take your passport with you if you need to use your credit card. Poetry also changed some US dollars for us at the same rate as the bank, which was very handy. Lots of local shops, cafes and restaurants in the area, easily walkable. About a five minute walk away is Avenue Santa Fe, where you can get the number 152 bus into town. We also used the subway, less than a 10 minute walk away. Everything felt very safe in the area. We’d definitely stay at Poetry Building again if we were to return to Buenos Aires.…
Some friends of ours recommended Poetry Building. The location is in an old part of town with easy access to restaurants and shopping. We recommend that you use Radio Cab for transportation. When in BA DO NOT USE ATM to change money. Use Poetry they will assist you. We were thrilled with Poetry.
