Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Buenos Aires, Capital Federal District
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, at least for the basics things like, order some fo...

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. Carlos Gardel, the mos famous tango singer, used to live 5 blocks from this house. You could say that staying here would give you a real idea of 'Buenos Aires life style', a mix of modern with the historical. The house is closed from the most visited places by tourist, as well as 'Casa Rosada', 'Plaza de Mayo', 'Florida', 'Abasto'. It´s located in the centre of the city, 7 blocks from the National Congress and 25 minutes walking from 'San Telmo' and 'Recoleta' (two nice neighbourhoods close by the house, best known because of their open air markets during the weekends). Notable bars like 'Cafe Tortoni', 'Bar de Cao', 'Cafe Los Angelitos' are also near by. You can´t leave with out visited them. In our city, 'going for a coffee' is the preferable activity for reading a book, meeting someone or just spend some time seeing trough the window what happens on the street. Only 50 mts. from the house there is a theatre, and four blocks you can find 'Join Us', a local Spanish school that gives language courses for your learning. The main characteristic of here is 'authentic'. It is said that we are in the first residential neighbour of the Buenos Aires, means that you can walk and still feel the atmosphere of the early 1,900. Most of the houses you will see where built at the end of 1,800, like ours (1,895). The life style was more relaxed on those years, big trees, small streets, and a low population gives a sense of quietness. At night, just at the corner, you can jump into the bus 95 and in 20 minutes be in 'Palermo' having fun with everyone of the city. Meet people at the bars for drinks and listening music. The most common for us is going out on Fridays and Saturdays after midnight. Or, if you like earlier, use the 56 line for going to down town, where we can find some pubs with happy hours, like British style, every day after working hours. We really think it is a good choice for your visit, and safe. A police station is 3 blocks from the house, and the police cars passed the house almost every hour. People know us and will be familiarized with you after a couple of days, just because they saw you coming in and out from the house. There is a big and one of the most beautiful church in Buenos Aires right at the corner, a building planned by a very famous Russian architect, Christopher Andersen, and built by local constructors following those plans. It´s open if you want to assist for the mass, and also guide visits are organized to know this nice building and it´s history. Parking is available in front of the house Transportation it´s really ease and we provide you a card which you can use for paying the trips, charging your own money. Prices are about 25 cent (USD)
