El Jardin del Tango
Ranked #42 of 256 Buenos Aires B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We stayed four nights at Rachel's in the lavendar room. So comfortable, clean, and quiet. If you don't rent the flat you'll be sharing with the person who's rented the other room, but the apartment is accomodating. Nice to have access to a kitchen, and Rachel made sure there was plenty of food for us while we were there (yogurt, cereal, fruit). She's a lovely woman and was terrific about meeting us, letting us in, showing us around, and being warm and receptive. If we return to Buenos Aires we'll definitely stay here again. The location isn't as sexy as other parts of the city, but it's easy to walk to those parts, and you're in a funky district. Bathroom is dark and a little funky, but plenty of hot water.

We stayed at Casa Jasmin for four nights over new year. The apartment consists of a tiny kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, and three bedrooms (two doubles and a single). It is on the sixth/top floor of an apartment building in a nice part of town, just round the corner from where the owner Rachel lives. She stocks the fridge with the makings of a good breakfast - milk, juice, eggs - plus cereals, bread, and fruits. Plus real coffee! So not a B&B in the traditional sense, but one where you made your own - perfect!

We loved the clean, light and airy rooms (the two double bedrooms also had very welcome air-con), and made the most of the self-catering possibilities. Nearby shops had all the basics, although as usual in South America, fresh fruit and veg was a bit scarce. The apartment is near bus stops and subte stations.

There is access to the roof terrace, but no shade, so it was unbearably hot for three out of the four of us... There is also a huge stock of books, that guests are welcome to swap for their own, and fast wifi, which we made much use of (as well as a laptop for guests to use). The shower was good and strong, although I had a little trouble keeping the temperature pleasantly constant.

For USD$120 per night, this was a real bargain in central Buenos Aires, especially for the quality of the apartment and the freedom it afforded. Rachel is a real sweetie, and even helped us find accommodation for an extra night in BA later in our trip (sadly Casa Jasmin was booked!). Recommended without hesitation.

This truly is an amazing place to stay in Buenos Aires and all these reviews say it all. After reading this review check the website for availability for your dates and if available contact Rachel immediately and book! The location is great 15 minute walk to 9 de Julio, two minute to red line subway and five minute walk to green line subway. Many supermarkets, pharmacies and apparel shops in the area. Giant Abasto shopping mall is ten minute walk.
The casa is fully equipped with whatever you need, kitchen is setup or home cooked meals, rooms are impeccably clean and beds are comfortable. The casa makes you feel like you never left home!
Rachel is a wonderful host/landlord and goes above and beyond to making your stay the most enjoyable it can be. She provides invaluable recommendations and advice on what to do in BA and is always making sure your stay is as comfortable as possible!
This place is so great that we even went back to stay there during our second pass through Buenos Aires!

Best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at and I have been to a few. The rooms are clean and cute. There was even an adorable little balcony in our room. The building is fabulously old and the elevator looked like it was from the turn of the century (I'm from Orange County so you can imagine how exciting this is to me.) The area, however, is not the best but it is very central and close to a metro line which connects you to all the other metro lines. The area is also ideal if you are down for an adventurous Buenos Aires experience (as we were) and want a glimpse of what real life is for many Argentinians. If that's what you're looking for, it doesn't get much better.

But, I haven't gotten to the best part...the FOOD. Rachel is gracious enough to know that not everyone eats at the same time nor the same types of food so she instead leaves a refrigerator provided with breakfast essentials for all tastes. There is also a kitchen where you can cook, which we did on occasion.

And lastly, the mark of a really great hostess is how she treats her guests. She was exceedingly kind the entire time and provided us with all the brochures and maps one could want. She even sends you a detailed email with what she thinks are the best tourist sights in town. All in all, an awesome experience in an amazing city.

Thanks Rachel!

My wife and I stayed here for around 10 nights on our around the world honeymoon. Rachel was extremely helpful and reads her guests well. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves as we stayed in the low season. It felt like a home away from home. We felt her accommodation allowed us to feel like we lived in Buenos Aires as opposed to just being a tourist.

We spent 4 nights at El Jardin, 3 in Casa Jasmin and 1 with the lovely Rachel herself (and her 2 beautiful cats) in Casa Rosa. From start to finish Rachel was just great and we cant thank her enough for her help with tango lessons, travel tips and places to visit in the city. Casa Jasmin has 2 rooms with a shared bathroom you can book but we decided to take over the apartment which obviously provides more privacy... the apartment would equally suit two couples or people travelling independently. In Casa Rosa Rachel has one of the 2 rooms and the other is where the guests stay... it is a shared bathroom but this was not a problem atall. The neighbourhood is a short walk from some of the major attractions in BA such as Recoleta and also the very trendy Palermo where we dined most days. That said BA is set out in such a way that El Jardin is well situated to access all parts of the city by bus, subway or, as we did, on foot. Rachel has the apartments well stocked with breakfast items and everything is just very easy when one stays here. The added attraction for us was that we felt part of the city staying in the apartments rather than in a faceless hotel. Rachel you are a true gem - thanks so much for everything. Dermot and Jane x

I stayed at Casa Jasmin for 9 nights. (It was supposed to be 7, but the volcano in Chile intervened.) The best way I can describe it is that I felt very comfortable and at home. It's a lovely place, well-appointed, with a serve-yourself breakfast. There's free wifi, and also a computer in case you haven't brought your own. The Casa is on the top (6th) floor, and on a side street, so it's quiet, especially the Lavendar Room. Best of all, though, is how helpful the proprietor (Rachel) was. She lives just around the corner (in her other Casa) and is pretty much always available, if you need anything. What I loved most was when, after my arrival, Rachel sat down with me, gave me a map of Buenos Aires and some other travel information, and proceeded to talk me through the map. And the living room is like the Buenos Aires travel section in a bookstore.

The location is excellent - a very safe neighborhood, a few blocks from various major subway and bus lines, and really within walking distance of many of the important spots.

In terms of the place, its location and price, it can't be beat. If I return to BA, this is where I'll stay.
