I have to set a context around my review: at home, we live in a detached house in a quiet suburb. Spent a week here, upon a friend's recommendation. Well located in Recoleta, lots of eateries around. Nice walking distance from the Recoleta cemeterio and other attractions. Their definite strong point is the level of service. They arranged to have...

We stayed in room 4A and we loved the room size, mini kitchen, bathroom and balcony. Really cool area and great people at reception who help you with anything you need. We loved the pool area on our floor and the honour bar - good priced beers at the pool very nice for when you arrive. Amazing extra was champagne...

My husband and I have stayed at Poetry Building on 4 different trips. It is our favorite place to stay and we usually stay for 1-2 months. It is like our second home! There is no place better - and we have traveled a lot! We love the entire staff and always look forward to seeing everyone! The owner is...

Great location and wonderful hotel, just loved the rooms very spacious and excellent kitchen great when you are traveling with family. You get a boutique feel from this hotel, not the run of the Mill cookie cutter chain hotel. Very comfortable staff was extremely friendly 10/10

Superb apartments right in the heart of Recoleta, restaurants, shops, everything close by. We stayed in one of the penthouses (5B) - fabulous balcony and upstairs private patio. Too good to go out - we stayed in one night and had takeaways with excellent Argentinian chanpaigne and wine. Great staff, very helpful. Overall an excellent stay.

4 of us started our SA vacation in Buenos Aires and staying at the Poetry Building was the best decision we made. Building is beautiful, rooms are great and spacious. Perfect for short or long stay, Location in Recoleta is ideal making it easy to get anywhere. We utilized their driver, Claudio, to get to and from airport, a tour...

Beautiful, large, clean rooms. A beautiful building in the prime location of Recoleta in Buenos Aires. A roof deck with a plunge pool where you can sit and enjoy a bottle of wine while watching videos that get projected on the wall of the building next door at night....Sounds great right? It is great but that's not why I'm recommending...

What a joy it was to stay at the Poetry Building! This stands as one of the only places I've reviewed for which I really cannot find any fault. Our room was a duplex for two adults and two teens. Downstairs there was a small and very well equipped kitchen, 1/2 bath, beautifully furnished living room with sofa bed (big...

We stayed here with our young daughter for a week and were very happy with our choice. The room set up was excellent (we had a king sized bed which we all ended up sleeping in, but there was a separate living room with a door that closed if we stayed up later than our daughter), a well-appointed kitchen, and...

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Poetry Building offers 18 exquisite and professionally furnished apartments specifically designed for short-term vacation rental. They are beautifully appointed with all the comforts and amenities you have at home. Poetry is located in Recoleta, one of Buenos Aires' most desired and exquisite neighborhoods, surrounded by parks, cafes, restaurants, and shopping. The building itself evokes the romance that is Buenos Aires. It is firmly rooted in Argentina’s history as the former home of one of its most famous and aristocratic families, the Peralta Ramos. Many of the original architectural lines and much of the beautiful grace of the original 100 year old mansion have been restored. Much effort has been taken to meticulously update Poetry’s interiors to interpret and integrate current trends with modern demands. Our staff speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese. We are located in the office on the ground floor of the building. We offer:Privacy without solitude. Luxury without stuffiness or attitude and assistance without intrusiveness. ... more   less
