Staying at this landmark location, you are just within short walking distance from the famous Café Biela and Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires Design and Recoleta Village, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and Palais de Glas, as well as many other important monuments and tourist attractions of this great city.

The apartment is just perfect for a couple who love art, as well as chic & stylish living at the most prestigious location possible... but will accommodate up to 4 mature sharers or a family. Modern sophisticated decor and most desirable location make this apartment an ideal option for the most comfortable stay in Buenos Aires.
