I'm glad I've spent my days in BA in this house even though I had my doubts. This place was recommended to me but I had never been in a Guest House before. The House its not sophisticated at all however the structure of the building is beautiful and properly restored and it has all the necessary conveniences.

I like the atmosphere of the people and the house a lot. The people which work there are very friendly and helpfull in any case. The house is comfortable and is a old restaurated building. The location is in the middle of the nicest quarter of Buenos Aires.

If you are not looking for the services of a hotel, but you prefer the warmth and the atmosphere of a home or family, than this is the place to be!! Also if you are not really into tango. ;-) Spacious rooms, well located, friendly people willing to give lots of advice. Do not hesitate!

We got a very nice welcome, very relaxed atmosphere, old typical house with a lot of charme, between a hostal and a shared house, plus a very good price. The roof top terrasse is fabulous, the owner charming, I look forward to my next visit there!

El Sol de San Telmo (1181 Chacabuco) reminds me of a building where I lived with my art student girlfriend (now wife) in the mid 1970s in bohemian Westbourne Grove, London (near Notting Hill). It was a former grand house, which had seen better days.  We lived in a large room at the front of the house. Like the dance...

I staid in various places in San Telmo until I found El Sol. The last 4 years I've staid here; it's close to the Subte, buses and taxis, a great parilla is just down the street, there are 2 fabulous empanada places within a block & gelato for desert is just across the street. It's a quick walk down the...

I moved back from Montreal to Argentina more than a year ago, and finally decided to stay over. Of course after all this time living here, it’s no need to say that I couldn't agree more with Eva's and many other opinions about the house. Anyway, I just want to send mine as a celebration to all the people who...

I stayed here twice this year (Jan & Feb 2014), there are many long term residents & guests return regularly, I know it is THE place will ALWAYS stay when in B.A. You feel like a resident not just a traveller passing through. It is not the Ritz but provides all you need for a good stay in the city,...

I like the House a lot but what I like the most of it is the people (Cris, Linda, Carlos, Gonza, etc). Since the majority of them are there for a very long time and the rest are usually people that keep coming back from abroad after years it is always a very friendly ambience. I am from Entre Rios...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
