Trip Report Apartment in Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

We had an excellant experience in Recoleta, Buenos Aires for a one week apartment rental using Buenos Aires Habitat. A very pleasant English speaking rep met us in the apartment and before we left. They arranged the trip from EZE (the international ariport) to the apt and back so we did not have to worry. This was especially helpful as the domestic airport is in construction and all international flights were affected.

Furthermore, the apartment was clean, well maintained and perfectly located. We have used other agencies in Europe who broker with the owner and that was ok, but not as worry free--which made the beer and choripanes much tastier.

We wanted to use our time well, and so spent the first 4 hours of each day at a Spanish language school--AISL (Argentina Improving Spanish Language). That went very well. It was only about a 20 min walk from our place. The classes were small and the staff pleasant. I was pleased that my instructor was willing to adapt the class format to my need--no text, just practicing conversation using different tenses as well as defining the Porteno accent.

The rest of the time we just pretended to be locals. The grocery store was two blocks away and the Recoleta Cemetery was about 5 blocks away. Plenty to do even if you are not into touristing. This was one of the our first trips that left us wanting to stay after a week. Usually, we are ready to visit the next town in country.
