Argentina Pt XII: Hip 2br apt at HEART of San Telmo

Click here for trip report index.

Our awesome apartment in San Telmo

We had five nights at Buenos Aires and once again we turned to Airbnb. There were many great options available and Cecilia was the first to reply to our queries. Her two-bedroom apartment cost us 234 SGD in total, making it among the cheapest accommodation that we had in South America.

The taxi ride from AEP to San Telmo was 115 ARS in total (inclusive of an additional 10 ARS that the driver insisted that we pay). Cecilia had arranged for her dad to meet us at the entrance of the apartment and we had to wait a while for him to arrive.

Entrance to the apartment

Turned out that he was a Canadian who used to work in the aviation industry. He was stationed in Argentina and Brazil for a number of years and since made Buenos Aires his home.

He led through the labyrinth of the building before we got to the unit. Both of us loved our home in Buenos Aires at first sight.

We self-catered several of our meals during our time there, taking advantage of the numerous supermarkets nearby.

Meal 2

Its location was pretty good as well. Independencia station of the Buenos Aires Subte is only five minutes’ walk away and there were many restaurants and supermarkets in the area.

There was a laundry (Lavadero) a block away and we did our laundry twice during our stay.

Lavadero – 40 ARS for washing and drying

Waiting for our turn at the dryers

We were very happy with our apartment and could see ourselves returning there if we were to visit Buenos Aires again.
