Reading the earlier reviews it's not easy to add more praise - but I'll try! My wife and I stayed at Maria's Tango Casa for 12 marvelous days in Sept 2007 - on the recomendation of a friend who lives part of the year in BsAs.
During our stay we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (champagne with Maria and other guests at an afternoon milonga at Confiteria Ideal) and my 60th Birthday (dinner at 10.30 pm the night before, feliz navitas sung by all at midnight, dancing till 4.30 am at Salon Canning, a birthday party that evening with everyone in the house followed by more dancing!)
We are intermediate dancers and both improved greatly from the individual tango and milonga lessons from resident and visiting teachers in the house's dance studio. Maria and her staff helped us choose great milongas from the wide variety, showed us where to buy good value tango clothes, shoes and music, where to go for a bit of sightseeing, how to get around, took us to marvellous concerts and came with us for many very memorable evenings of danncing and dining.
The house is old and charming, the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast and facilities were just right. While we were there the expansions into the downstairs area were going on and that's going to add a lot - a second outdoor area to match the floor terrace will be great in the summer.
In September the weather was cold at first (a shock after Europe) but on Primavera (22 Sept the first day of spring) the weather suddenly changed to beautiful warm days, all the ladies were given a red flower and the students enjoyed a day off school - if you are there we reccomend a stroll in the Ecological Reserve that day - made us feel young again.
Maria's place is suitable for couples like us but would also be great for singles - we met up with other dancers in the house and that really added to our enjoyment. Although we are a bit older the casa would suit all ages - the staff ranged in age from early twenties up (Daniella was lovely, Tota so friendly and helpful, Luis a gem - and, although Ute was away her emails and people's comments about her were great). We had no language problem - Maria, Daniella nd Ute speak great English and the fact that Tota and Luis spoke only Spanish was a real bonus - we got a chance to improve our little Spanish.
So - if you're looking for a comfortable, reasonably-priced, well-placed, friendly place to stay where you will get marvellous help to make your stay and your dancing great - then look no further!
