Lovely one bedroom apartment in a very nice area. We were very well looked after and had the independence of our own place. Efficient servicing and laundry. We were lucky enough to have a late check out which was much appreciated. Loved the roof garden!

I stayed for 5 nights in a beautiful studio apartment. I prebooked transfers with the property and they offered to purchase groceries for me in advance to which was great. The location is in the heart of Recoleta, close to many restaurants and the supermarket is only a block away. It was a perfect base for exploring BA and I loved being able to cook and enjoy a glass of Malbec in the comfort of the studio in the evenings. I also really appreciated the Apple TV and Bluetooth speaker - and the welcome bottle of wine! These little extra touches really make you feel at home. I would love to stay here again.

We loved the poetry building! We had a two bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and small balcony overlooking the street. The furnishings were beautiful and we had soaring ceilings with brick walls. It was a great place to unwind and in a very walkable neighborhood. Down the block was a lovely bakery where we bought our morning medialunas daily! The hotel provides free coffee and a complimentary bottle of wine. We wished we could stay again!

We stayed 3 nights in a duplex apartment. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The reception staff are helpful and friendly. The location is good and we found it easy to get around using taxis and Ubers. There are a number of restaurants etc close by. Transfers to/from the airport were arranged for us and worked like clockwork. I would highly recommend Poetry Building for your stay in BA.

I stayed here three years ago for business and then returned for a family vacation. For the price and location (center of Recoleta), it's an absolute bargain. So much better than a traditional hotel, as the suites are spacious and distinctive. For breakfast, just go to the amazing pastry and coffee shop around the corner.

We absolutely loved staying at the Poetry Building during our visit to BA. We stayed in Penthouse 5A and were blown away by how charming and lovely the apartment was. We made use of the private balcony and patio everyday. The room had a full kitchen so we enjoyed making breakfast each day. The neighborhood cannot be beat, and there is so much to do within walking distance of Poetry. The street Poetry is on is quiet so we were not disturbed at night. The concierge was so helpful in helping up book transportation and with general questions. You can have your laundry done for $10 a bag, which was also a pleasant surprise. I will be sure to stay at Poetry again next time I am in BA.

We stayed here for 4 nights after a trip to Antartica, before we left for Antartica we stayed in a hotel closer to Palermo. I much preferred this hotel and location. Our room, I think it was 2B, was beautiful, with an upstairs area that had a comfortable little sleeping nook that we used to relax in after long hot days walking around beautiful BA. Lots of places to eat nearby (maybe that part of Palermo is better). The large bed downstairs was was nice to have a kitchen, there are so many nice fruit and veggies stands around- nice to have fresh fruit when it is winter back home. We did go up to the rooftop but never used the pool. I would highly recommend the Poetry building and would definitely stay again

We stayed here just before Christmas last year. It's our first time in BA, and picking a right place to lodge played a very important part for our little stay over in a new city. All the reviews from previous guests are true, and we cannot add more. This historical building was beautiful itself, impressive and felt personal (unlike staying in a chain hotel with match boxes rooms, this place got character!). We felt like locals staying in the wonderful neighborhood of Recoleta. There were many nice little shops and restaurants nearby, it was just so convenient. The personnel working at the hotel were all nice people, and even the guests were cool, mature and friendly. We booked one of the duplexes, and if we could move in for a month, we would! BA has lots to offer, our only regrets were staying too short both in the Poetry Building and the city!

We rented a one bedroom with terrace and it was very comfortable. We were on the 4th floor which is where the dipping pool and roof top terrace was located. The location is good, with lots of restaurant options and easy walk to some attractions. BA Is a big city and things are spread out. I'm happy to recommend this option.

The amenity of the Poetry Building and the surrounding neighbourhood is beautiful. The staff are amazingly helpful and thoughtful and happy. The room was fantastic. The Concierge service made a big difference and helped us out several times with great advice and assistance. The Poetry Building helped to make our Buenos Aires experience one to remember for all the right reasons and helped to make our trip well beyond all our expectations. We liked it so much, we will absolutely be returning. The Poetry Building and its staff are to be commended. Ten out of ten!!!
