Certificate of Excellence
The Poetry Building offers 17 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.

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.

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.

Hello, We as a staff were saddened to read your review. In all fairness, we believe that such a short stay did not allow you to absorb all that we offer and it’s likely our fault that this information wasn’t presented to you prior or during your stay. You’ve mentioned that you stayed in a place that was far less expensive. Like any city in the world, there are one-off short-term rental apartments in buildings with permanent residents everywhere. You can occasionally find a great apartment and with a little luck never need assistance while you are there. But more often than not, no one greets you upon check-in, no one checks you out, and no one helps you with anything at all during your stay. There are countless agencies renting these apartments that cannot keep up with guest demands as their apartment inventory is spread throughout the large city. This is precisely why our entire building is made up of all short-term luxury apartments. We have an on-site concierge staff as well as a live-in porter for security and emergency measures if something were to occur outside our office hours. Our concierge service is multi-lingual (English, Spanish, & Portuguese) and will help our guests with any and all reservations, ideas of what to do in the city, and anything and everything you may need during your stay with us. In this respect, I can say that we offer far more than just about any hotel concierge desk would offer in assistance. Additionally, we have our own bi-lingual chauffeur who provides airport transportation as well as a multitude of tours. It is true, that our building is antique. It dates back over 100 years and was meticulously restored. The original structure cannot support more than a dipping pool for warm summer days. This area also comes with an outdoor shower, sun chairs, and honor bar. We have another outdoor area which is a beautiful organic garden where guests are invited to pick our seasonal vegetables and cook in their own kitchens. In our other common area, we hold tango nights and wine tasting events. We are steadfast in our maintenance of our building and quite frankly are very proud of what we offer and how we present it to our guests. I wish you could have come to discover all that we offer. Warmest regards. Poetry Staff

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!
