It´s a family business driven by Maria Teresa, the owner of the house. She is a psychologist and tango dancer, speaks English and French and likes to meet every one of her guest in order to help them in the experience of visiting our city. Marta, sister of Maria, and Alberto, Marta´s husband, are managers of the property. They will be always in contact with you for anything you need during your visit. They speak only Spanish, which is good for you to practise. There is one person in the house, Federico (me, son of Maria) who speaks English. If I am not in Buenos Aires, someone else is doing my job here. There are books at the house for learning some Spanish , and if you like, Marta can spend some time every day with you chatting in Spanish, helping you to understand and talk with locals, ...It´s a family business driven by Maria Teresa, the owner of the house.

If I am not in Buenos Aires, someone else is doing my job here. There are books at the house for learning some Spanish , and if you like, Marta can spend some time every day with you chatting in Spanish, helping you to understand and talk with locals, at least for the basics things like, order some food in a restaurant, or how to buy a bus ticket. You can expect social contact with the tango community, interacting with other guest and by doing your everyday activities. We saw people really enjoying while buying their own food at the local stores. The area is known for having good prices and best quality in fresh fruits and vegetables, Our guest are noticed and they usually spend some time in the morning to prepare a very nice breakfast. You will find some personalized recipients in the kitchen where you can save your food. We help you on the first day with a tour around the area, then you can find anything. Also, if necessary, we also accompany our guest when they have difficult for doing shopping. A dancing room for tango lessons and practices, a teacher comes to the house if you ask her, and tango music are available for you in case you are interested. As we said before, this place is special for tango lovers. THE HOUSE There are four rooms with double bed and private bathroom at this residence. There is a fully equipped kitchen for the use of all the guest and a big table for meals. The house was built in 1895 and we did some renovations to add comfort. At the same time, we made a big effort to keep the house as original as possible; In this way visitors can grab the idea of Buenos Aires in it´s old times, when there was no gas or either electricity in this city, so houses like this where built with a very different concept. High ceilings and doors to catch as more sunlight as possible, airflows systems to get freshness in the summer and the wide walls isolate inside from cold and warm whether. Nowadays we add ceiling fans in each room and a heating system for all the house, toilets in the rooms and a cover in the patio. It took us one and a half year to do the changes, the architectures in charge where specialist in historical buildings and also the workers, we kept all the doors and windows. The structure of the house is exactly the same as when it was built. A nice marble stair after a really high door at the entrance, was reconditioned by a specialist too, giving safe and stylish for going into the house. Iron, wood, and other noble materials could be found in every space. In the roof, we have made a terrace where you can enjoy a sunny day, relax any time (24 hs. available). This residence is visited for tango dancers who comes to Buenos Aires for tango dancing at the milongas. Some visitors also came to have lessons with local teachers to improve their dance. Of course you could stay with us if you don´t dance, and maybe you encourage to dance tango while you are staying here. Maria, owner of the house, accompany her guest to dance and introduce them to other local or foreign dancers and friends. You could join them any time, for dancing or just sitting and enjoying hanging out in a 'milonga'. This house is one of the first tango guest house in Buenos Aires and Maria has 'tango friends' in many cities around the world. We hope to meet you soon and become friends too! Best regards from Buenos AiresMore

About the neighbourhood
Our area is well known as 'Congreso' because we are 5 minutes walking from the National Congress Building. We are close to the principal milongas (tango dancing clubs) because our guest are usually tango dancers, and we ride them almost every day to dance. Balvanera is a residential neighbourhood with many restaurants, food stores, banks buildings and fashion clothes stores-at a reasonable price!-. A shopping mall only two blocks from the house offers a wide variety of products. The Japanese community choose this area in the 60`s for living and so you can find many Japanese restaurants. There are many bus lines, and also a subway station, to travel anywhere around the city. A taxi ride is about 10 dollars for most of the places people goes in Buenos Aires.
