I stayed with Rachel, the hostess of Casa Rosa at El Jardin del Tango 3 nights when I arrived in Buenos Aires. Then I travelled in Uruguay for 8 days and returned to Casa Rosa for 3 more nights before flying back to California. The Casa Rosa experience was superb. The Aviary room was clean, roomy, and decorated nicely. Rachel provided a plush robe. Breakfast was delicious, nutritious, and abundant. The casa is centrally located and it was an easy walk to such places as Rocoleta, 9th Julio, Obelisko, Retiro, Plaza de Mayo. Busses and subway are easy to use. Casa Rosa's 2 cats, Carlos and Flavia were great to play with and have around. They certainly added to the ambience. But the best thing about staying at Casa Rosa was chatting with Rachel over tea or a nice Argentine red wine. She is knowledgeable, caring, and incredibly warm. She is eager to be helpful and is full of suggestions and answers to any questions a traveller may have. I loved staying in Casa Rosa at El Jardin del Tango. I recommend it highly and look forward to returning in the future.
