San Telmo Loft

Situated in San Telmo, the most enigmatic barrio of Buenos Aires, this warm and enticing loft offers a perfect refuge after a long day of discovering the mysteries of Buenos Aires. The loft is on the second floor of a characteristic turn-of-the-century building.

Living Room

Two blocks from Plaza Dorrego and two blocks from Puerto Madero, you’ll be within walking distance of two of the most intriguing neighborhoods of Buenos Aires—San Telmo, among the oldest, and Puerto Madero, the most modern.

Living Room

Consistent with the turn-of-the-century architecture of the building itself, the interior design combines sensual and dynamic colors giving it the feel of a Toulouse-Lautrec painting. It recalls Paris of la Belle Époque and the Moulin Rouge — bohemian, enjoying dual-moralities, celebrating the hidden vices of the upper classes as they delighting in their freedom from prevailing conventionalisms and stereotypes.

Kitchen to Living Room

The sofa divides the section with the kitchen, desk space, downstairs bathroom and laundry area from the living area which is ideal for relaxing with a book or listening to music. Every detail from paint on the walls to the appliances in the kitchen to the fabric of the sofa was handmade by the interior designer which gives it an intimate and personal touch.


San Telmo is more than a furnished apartment; it’s a home. Because we’ve stayed in too many of those vacation rentals that look like they were furnished with the abandoned bits found in family members’ attics, unwanted furniture stuck randomly in an apartment with zero consideration for space, we’ve paid attention to the details and created a home we’d love to live in. You’ll love it, too.  A spiral staircase leads to the bedroom and master bathroom. The parquet floors turns to a metal support letting in light from below and creating an airy, spacious ambiance and looking out onto the living room, its paintings, and windows.


Cobblestone streets and balconied mansions make San Telmo the most traditional barrio of Buenos Aires.  The boundaries of the barrio are the streets Chile, Piedras, Av. Casero y Defensa, Av. Martín Garcia y Av. Paseo Colon (where the loft is located).

Bar Plaza Dorrego

You’ll want to explolre San Telmo’s Casas de Tango, small traditional restaurants known as bodegones, antique bars, and trendy shops. Day or night, San Telmo is full of activity.

Plaza Dorrego

    Does the loft have 2 bedrooms???

  12. Hi Githa,

    Actually the loft does not have 2 bedrooms, but the pad (our second apartment in the same building) does.


  13. The Loft, it is a magical place, and so are its wonderful owners..This place is amazing..such a wonderful energy, and helped us fall in love with Buenos Aires and make it a home..We came for just a short stay..and now cant seem to leave…Gonzalo, Natty, and Angela..are three of the sweetest people We have ever met in our travels,

    It is worth staying just to meet them and for the chance of Gonzalo’s bbq’s! They helped us with whatever problems we had, no matter how small, any time day or night..You can not go wrong here..Take a chance, and you will be greatly rewarded..

    Oh! I just rented a loft in the same building with another agency, what a pity…
    Hope to get to meet you guys at some point. I’m coming in July 3th an leaving in July 15th. Great blog by the way.
    Hugs from Brasil.

  16. Luiza… yes, it’s a pity! But you’re going to love this building. We definitely do. And the other apartments I know of here that are listed as vacation rentals are really nice (not as nice as the loft ;-0 ) Do get in touch with us when you get here. Send us an email at We’d love to meet you and maybe introduce you to whoever is staying in the loft. It’s always great to meet other travelers. Um beijo (that’s about all I know in Portuguese)… Angela
