We stayed 10 days is Buenos Aires at Conventillo de Lujo. We had an excellent time. Amy, Angel and her staff took care of us. Ray answered all of our email when we had questions. The rooms were spacious, clean and well kept. The location is near local shops where you can buy food, wine and bring it back to your apartment. You have to go to the Coto Supermarket. It has everything. Amy gave us advice and directions on how to use the subway Line D to go downtown to the Street Market and believe it or not Chinatown at the Juramento stop. On our trip to the Street Market we met Juan Ramon Toledo, a leather craftman. He made a leather coat and briefcase for me. We had Christmas eve dinner and a Christmas day afternoon Argentine barbecue with Amy and her friends. My wife and I went three times to Canning Tango Salon. We also took some private Tango classes with Amy and another instructor Juan. On our final Saturday, she took us downtown and helped us buy tango shoes.
For those that don't speak Spanish and do not want to walk a lot, ask Amy to get you a taxi guide that speaks English, the driver will give you a 3 hour tour of the city. This was helpful in getting to know the city outline. It's very hot in December, we learned to freeze some water bottles and carry them in our backpacks while we did some day walks. It helps to keep cool.
My wife and I highly recommend that you stay at the Conventillo de Lujo. It is a warm and friendly place. We met people from Australia, Germany, Brazil and Peru at the Conventillo. You will have a great time. Enjoy, All the best, King & Carla, New Orleans, LA, USA
