Spacious, comfortable studio apartment, right in the heart of Buenos Aires. Lots of daylight, and quiet at night. Large bed. High ceilings, parquet flooring. Reliable WiFi. Safe neighborhood close to sights. Excellent public transport connections.

The space

A spacious studio in the immediate neighborhood of the National Parliament (Congreso), right in the heart of the city, a safe part of town that does not flood during heavy rains, and which is rarely affected by power cuts that plague other parts of town especially during summer. Located in a one-way street with bicycle lane, free of polluting and noisy buses.

As Buenos Aires is a large city that never sleeps, having a place that is central yet free of heavy traffic noise will make your stay so much more enjoyable. This apartment is on the fourth floor of an old building (= high ceilings). Out back, you overlook the rooftops of a historic pedestrian street (= no traffic). Out front, the terrace garden roof of a lower lying building gives distance to the street.

Being right in the heart of the city, you can conveniently reach all parts of Buenos Aires even during busy times of the year (and easily get back home also late at night). Near underground lines A, B and D (nearest stations are 'Congreso' and 'Saenz Pena' on subway line A, and 'Callao' and 'Uruguay' on line B). Numerous bus lines stop in the immediate neighborhood, including the official 'Buenos Aires Bus' tourist route.

High ceilings and opposite windows give good natural ventilation in summer. There is a fan for an extra breeze when needed, and no air conditioning to avoid the environmental and health problems associated with chemical coolants and aircon bacteria. Infrared electric heating and double-glazing (still very rare in Buenos Aires) make it warm in winter and provide extra insulation year round.

Guest access

The apartment features parquet flooring and wooden furniture. Large (queen size, 1,6m x 2m) bed with firm high density foam mattress, best hotel quality bed linen and towels, blackout curtains, safety deposit box, CD/radio (including cable to connect your MP3 player). Small equipped kitchen including refrigerator, electric double hob, kettle, microwave oven, stainless steel cooking utensils. Fully repainted in 2016.

If you stay longer than two weeks you will get weekly cleaning for free, provided by my trusted cleaning lady.

This is a centrally located apartment in the San Nicholas neighborhood. The description of this apartment is accurate. I stayed in the apartment for one month. Check in was smooth and the apartment was very clean. Once a week there was a cleaning service and a change of the sheets all performed very attentively. Roxina is a great host! Clear communication and very hospitable! A+

I stayed at Roxina’s apartment for a month and can’t say enough good things about my experience. First, the location: it’s in the centrally located Congreso neighborhood and is two blocks from the Plaza del Congreso (with two Subte stations) and three blocks from the busy Avenida Corrientes. Within a half block’s walk of the apartment you’ll find a supermarket, a laundry, a fruit stand, a bakery, a stationery store, and numerous other little shops and cafes. Next, the apartment: it’s a large room – exactly as depicted in the photos – with a comfortable double bed, table, wardrobe, small but efficient and well-provisioned kitchen (with a microwave, fridge, and all sorts of dishes and cooking gear), and full bathroom. It’s neat and clean, with windows at both ends to give adequate light throughout the day. Roxina has really tried to think of everything to make the apartment a great place to stay; in addition to dependable wi-fi, there is a basic cell phone for use by the guests, instructions and hints printed up in English and Spanish, a city directory, and even a first-aid kit. I was very happy to have spent a month here, will definitely stay here when I return to Buenos Aires, and highly recommend it to other airbnb guests.

Its a beautiful apartment, spacious, cozy and with everything you need for an enjoyable stay: small equipped kitchen, comfortable mattress, clean extra towels, blankets and strong Wi-Fi signal. Quiet and centrally located in a very walkable neighborhood (Congreso). Roxina was a wonderful host, very friendly and non-intrusive. Excellent value, I would love to stay again.

This was my second stay at Roxina's place for almost two months. I've stayed in many places in airbnb in BA but Roxina's is the only place I've stayed at more than once as it is just perfect. Highly recommended!

This is an excellent place for any solo traveller or for couples. The place is very spacious and clean, Besides, the room was very well lit with a very comfortable bed. There is everything you need just around the blocks eg. supermarket, gym and even a sushi place right infront of the building. There is cleaning services every week too. Highly recommended for everybody. Thanks again Luis and Roxina !

Roxina was a great host! Excellent apartment in one of my favorite parts of town. Many grocery stores and transportation options nearby. I've stayed in many studio apartments in Buenos Aires and this was one of the best. The apartment itself is newly remodeled and the building has an old charm to it which I appreciated. It is very quiet as it isn't on the street and the neighbors aren't noisy. I stayed there in May and the heating system was great -- this was something I was a bit worried about initially but it wasn't a problem. I would happily stay here again. Thanks again Roxina!

Hi, I am an Argentinian musician and professional tango dancer born and raised in Buenos Aires and currently working in Europe. I own two beautiful apartments which I rent out for vacation, but they are also part of my life and together with my husband we stay in one or the other ourselves whenever I get back home. Hence, we renovate the apartments and replace sheets and towels regularly, and make sure they offer good quality accommodation for our guests.

My friend Luis helps with check in, check out and everything you may need during your stay.

I would be pleased to host you in one of our apartments. Do not hesitate to ask me all the questions you may have (about the apartments, my city, or tango).

Enjoy your stay!
