Kevin is a perfect host. You will feel like an Argentine staying in this beautiful building. Lovely rooms, great breakfasts and near all the attractions by the subway or cab. This is a true find in this exciting city. You will not regret booking this property for this authentic experience.

My wife and I spent 12 days at the Pavos Reales B&B on our honeymoon. The comfort of being in a superbly decorated, comfortable, and quiet apartment was the respite that we needed from our busy days of wandering around BA. We always awoke to find a delicious breakfast waiting for us - fresh pasteries, fresh orange juice, fresh coffee,...

I spent 10 days at this charming B&B and could not have been more pleased. It is in a wonderful location within walking distance of many restaurants and a few local bars. Before you even step inside you will already see the amazing architecture of the building and once you are inside you feel right at home. Kevin and Diego...

Kevin's friendly driver picked us up at the airport for a pleasant ride to the B&B. Kevin and Diego were warm, knowledgeable and very helpful, making suggestions and providing other information, including numerous pamphlets, books and maps. Subway is a short walk away and their are several good restaurants nearby, including a good, modest, Japanese one. Although on a main...

We spent a delightful week at this unique B&B.

We stayed here for a few nights at the end of our trip. It was a shockingly pleasant change from camping and budget hostels in Patagonia (and from the sterile Buenos Aires hotel we stayed in at the start of our trip). The Art Nouveau apartment and building are gorgeous and detailed, and featured in many of the historical Art...

Vacationing in Argentina during holy week, hotel accommodations can be hard to find... that turned out to be a bit of luck when I pursued my first stay at a bed and breakfast. Early engagement was outstanding with rich communication and answers to all sorts of questions. Arranging for transfer from the Airport, all went smoothly despite a delay in...
