I am writing to express my gratitude after spending a week at the apartment located in Libertad 1693. I am 33 years old. I was born in Buenos Aires but I currently live in New York. The apartment is modern, spacious and cozy. It can easily accommodate an entire family. The remodeled kitchen and bathrooms are properly equipped. Guests can easily cook without missing home. It is located in one of the nicest and safest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. I felt safe at all times, including coming late at night or jogging along Libertador Avenue. You can find numerous restaurants and whatever you need at walking distance. It’s only half a block from a gorgeous mall (Patio Bullrich) and only minutes away (by taxi) from Puerto Madero or Palermo. There is a very recommendable restaurant/cafe right at street level in the same building, conveniently opened till late night. The apartment has high-speed wireless Internet and they even provided me a cell phone!!

Thanks again Ricardo for the hospitality. I highly recommend the apartment for the perfect stay in Buenos Aires.

The apartment at 1693 Libertad is the perfect place to get to know Buenos Aires. The location couldn’t be better! It is perfect for walking to all of the best parts of the city, with great restaurants and terrific shopping just nearby. Recoleta is definitely the most charming area in all of Buenos Aires, although the whole city is just magnificent. Patio Bullrich is the nicest mall in town and it is only a few steps away. The Cemeterio de la Recoleta must be seen to be believed and it too is just a short walk from the apartment, as are so many beautiful parks, museums and the most important landmarks. For day trips to Tigre or Uruguay, the Retiro train station and the Ferry port are also an easy walk. You can venture further on foot or take just a short cab ride to see Palermo, the Center, Plaza de Mayo, the theater district, San Telmo, Retiro and Puerto Madero. Take a cab to the Caminito in La Boca which is also a must see for great people watching, street artists, lots of colour and tango in the streets. Be sure to take a walk to and down Florida street (also very nearby) which is a great walking and shopping street not accessible to cars. There are just so many things that are so easily accessible from the apartment that we never ran out of things to do!

The apartment itself is spacious, very clean and has been very nicely updated. It has all the conveniences you could ask for and is simply a wonderfully comfortable place to call home during your visit to Buenos Aires. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern, there is lots of closet space and our bed was very comfortable. Although we were just two, there is plenty of room and beds for 5 people. There is a nice breakfast area in the kitchen and also a separate spacious dining area. The comfortable sitting room with satellite TV is a great place to chill out after a long day of touring around the city.

We highly recommend this apartment as a great place to stay. We had a terrific time there and really hated to leave.

Dear Pedro and Ricardo, 
I am writing to express my satisfaction and pleasure with my stay at your Libertad 1693 apartment during my recent visit to Buenos Aires. The apartment was much roomier than I had expected, but it made for a feeling of the "comforts of home". The 3 bedrooms were ample space for our needs, and the spacious dining room and living room with the entertainment systems and internet access added to the comfort. The supply of "tourist" information was more than ample to arrange for tours, dinner, or theatre. The kitchen was very well equipped allowing for convenient preparations of morning coffes and evening snacks. Laundry facilities were the answer to a convenient quick wash before departure.
Check in was conveniently arranged through the accommodation of Elsa Gamboa. She was helpful in every sense of the word, from ensuring a replacement cellphone charger was provided through Ricardo's prompt action, to her advising me when I had internet access concerns. She was prompt on check-in and accommodated me on a later departure. She is such a gracious lady.
The cleaning lady who came in midweek, was extremely delightful and despite my insisting things were fine, she proceeded to ensure that nothing was forgotten in her efforts to provide a comfortable clean environment. I could use her at home.
The apartment is conveniently located just mere steps from the intersection of Libertad and Libertador which made it very easy to flag a cab within a minute of stepping out onto the street. Access to numerous sites within the area was always only minutes away. Security in the building was never a concern.
So, I would like to thank you for the very pleasant service you provided. It was very good value for the price.
Thanks again!

Happy New year, Ricardo!
We had a very good stay in Buenos Aires. Your apartment suited us nicely.
You would probably want to know that the living room air consitioner drained water from one end of the unit. I noticed this only once during our stay. I put pots under the drips to collect the water. There doesn´t seem to be any damage to the floor so I don´t think it is a constant problem.
The cell phone is fifficult to use outside because it seems to pick up and amplify ambient noise. Probably should be replaced.
In case anybody asks about estancias, I would recommend overnight stays at El Ombú in San Antonio de Areco, and La Oriental located about 250 Km west of Buenos Aires. They were both lovely and each has a website for additional info. For even more information on estancias, google Red Argentina de Turismo Rural.
Avis, Thrifty and Deitrich car rental agencies are very conveniently located. You may want to include that information in your correspondence with visitors.
I left restaurant recommendations, etc in your Visitors Notebook.
Thanks for your general assistance in helping to make our stay so successfull.
We had an excellent time in Argentina

I want to thank Ricardo and Pedro for the thought they put into making our family´s stay in Buenos aires pleasurable. There was a cell phone for our use, easily recharged with phone cards, a book with necessary phone numbers and tips to better enjoy what the city has to offer. The apartment itself fullfilled all our expectations, and of course, is located in one of the poshest neighborhoods of B.A.
We used an hotel located one and half blocks away as a pick up point for our tours, since they do not pick up from private addresses. In the corner of Libertad and Libertador, just feet away from the entrance to the building, there is a very good restaurant that we used often. It has great food at great prices, and after a full day of touring, it was very convenient. They also deliver our order to the apartment upon request.
We used Buquebus for a day trip to the city of Colonia, in Uruguay, worth seeing and of historic significance. We used Travelline to take a city tour, to go to a Ranch to see feats of horsemanship and listen to folkloric music and even tango, and also visited Tigre.
The people were extremely courteous, and we enjoyed ourselves very much.
Finally, we went to a tango show (expensive) at Un Viejo Almacen. The dinner was very good and the show unforgettable. I was also told that Señor Tango is also very good. I have no way to compare the dozen or so shows but I was impressed with the one I saw.
Thank you again for your kind hospitality. I would not hesitate to highly recommend your apartment to any of my friends, or rent it again at a future date.
Best regards

Dear brothers Pedro and Ricardo:
Only a brief note to thank you for the so pleasant stay in your apartment in Recoleta. We had a wonderfull time, the location was excellent and the apartment was in superb condition. The area pleased us so much that we had breakfast EVERY DAY in the cafee Liber, downstairs in your building, where also the service was also extremely friendly. And frequently we enjoyed there a chocolate drink at 1AM! Our children were delighted with Buenos Aires, and we hope to return soon. Many thanks for everything, and to Georgina for her assistance. If someday you visit this battrered capital of Venezuela, we will be glad to assist you.
Best regards

It is often said that the three most important considerations when buying real estate are "location, location and location". For me, this principle holds when choosing where to stay in a foreign city. We have visited Buenos Aires quite frequently in the past 26 years and have never stayed in a better located hotel or apartment: fashionable shops, great restaurants, theaters and other major attractions are within walking distance or a short cab ride away. If on top of this we mention the very comfortable apartment, a great coffee shop around the corner and the brothers Pedro and Ricardo warm personality, we have the recipe for a very pleasant stay in a magnificient city.

Congratulations to brothers, Ricardo and Pedro! Their commitment to quality and good taste has resulted in an attractive, comfortable and convenient headquarters in Recoleta from which to enjoy this marvelous city. We found the location to be ideal for our explorations during the past ten days. There are good restaurants and shops nearby. But, most importantly, it is a central location with ready access to cabs day and night. As an added bonus, it was easy to tell taxi drivers “Libertad y Libertador,” the corner where the building is located.

The sparkling apartment, with its modern appliances, great entertainment system, new furnishings, shining kitchen and bath were seductive. We almost didn’t want to leave. As a result, some mornings we started our day much later than we had planned. We knew the minute we walked into the apartment that we were in a grand place.

We were especially appreciative of Ricardo’s suggestions and recommendations of both restaurants and places to visit in Buenos Aires and in the lovely neighboring city of Tigre. It was an asset to have a Porteño, resident of Buenos Aires, nearby to answer our many questions. The warm welcome we received from Ricardo’s assistant, Georgina, Ariel, who drove us from the airport, and building “super,” Pedro who greeted us daily with a smile, set the tone for our stay.

Together and separately, we have traveled throughout much of the world. This was our first visit to Buenos Aires. This cosmopolitan city is now high on our list of favorites. We both want to return – not only to revisit Buenos Aires (and take more tango lessons!) but also to travel throughout Argentina. We will definitely stay here on our next trip.

We were all extremely pleased with this apartment. Maybe for people renting it for a long time, for 15 or more days, a drying machine would be justified. Gas activated for a better economy.
Your relation price/services is excellent!
Definitely, the most outstanding feature of the apartment is its location: it is formidable, equaly distanced from the areas a turist wishes to visit and, obviously, of the shoping area.
As long as I stay in good health, be able to walk and maintain all my faculties, Buenos Aires will continue to be one of my preferred destinations.
Many thanks for everything!
