“A San Telmo gem!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

First, echoing other reviews, Brigit is a fabulous professional. She arranged for airport transportation (pickup and delivery) and was helpful in recommending the best of restaurants in the area (eg. El Historico is around the corner), museums and even a place to find professional and interactive Tango venues. The apartment at the back of the building is clean, well furnished and has windows opening to a private garden area which is extremely quiet at night. Large windows provide excellent ventilation. I found wireless was excellent with sufficient speed that I was able to work through my work computer using remote access. All clients have access to the rooftop terrace which we found to be a lovely place to have a bottle of wine or a late brunch.

Very tastefully decorated with just the right aesthetics for relaxation.
Very convenient location within San Telmo and close to some very good restaurants (El Historico, Brasserie Petanque and Amici Miei Ristorante).
Brigit was always helpful in making suggestions for restaurants and touring options.
Only one small item for improvement is the WiFi connectivity in the back on the second level - there was good coverage in the breakfast area, just not near our room.

We stayed with Brigit both upon our arrival and departure from Buenos Aires (visited several cities in between). Brigit greeted us upon arrival and was very helpful with suggestions regarding what to see/do and restaurants.The B&B was a former artist studio and has high ceilings and brick walls. The bathrooms are very modern and the beds comfortable. The facility was among the cleanest of all of our stays over 2 weeks in Argentina. Outstanding breakfast with eggs, cheeses, sliced meats, breads, etc. Share a bottle of great Argentinian wine (Torrontes white or Malbec red!) in the courtyard. The B&B is in the up and coming neighborhhod of San Telmo, not quite as chic or upscale as the Palermo neighborhood. Be sure and give an extra pet to Peachy the cat, who thinks he is still a kitten.

A fantastic place to stay! I stayed twice there and I felt so very welcomed in this beautiful, charming B&B, which has been marvellously renovated by the owner.
The rooms are big, very clean and make you feel at home.
The breakfast is outstanding. A large buffet with delicious components and fresh food.
It is a wonderful oasis in the heart of San Telmo, calm and relaxing and close to many attractions of Buenos Aires.
The owner is a charming Swiss lady, who runs the place with enthusiam and dedication.
Higly recommended!

Thanks to the reviews we were not too surprised by the neighborhood... once you pass the door and the rough street, Brigit's place is a haven: quiet, very comfortable, and with a wonderful owner. Brigit was not just a helpful host, she also very knowledgeable about her city and a great guide. We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Brigit's after the madness of Buenos Aires activities. We definitely recommend Brigit's place.
