I knew this was the right place to stay just as soon as I sent off an enquiry to Casona del Rio. The response, from Yanina, was very prompt and I felt welcomed immediately. She was even willing to engage in further email conversation as my dates and arrival times changed. It was an online service that I was not used to getting because so many places just want you to confirm, pay and be gone.
It was great to have an airport pickup arranged by Casona del Rio arrive for me and then to arrive to such a homey welcome. We discussed places to go -- the Paleontological Museum is fantastic -- both in town and around the house.
I think Casona del Rio is particularly suitable for couples or families as it's quiet and private. Because it's a few kilometres out of town -- in a very picturesque spot on the river -- I think it would work best to have your own car if staying there, rather than have to rely on taxis.
I felt that I was a friend of Yanina almost as soon as I arrived, and certainly by the time I left.
It's certainly the place to stay if you want to feel at home in Argentina!
