“Do Not Stay Here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2010

Lugabe Apartments were recommended to us by IBL Spanish Language School (to whom we also paid the months rent) which stated on their website that it was in a secure building & safe neighbourhood. Not so. We were robbed at gunpoint in our apartment in Lugabe II as were all the other tenants, both Argentine and foreign, in the entire building. This building has secure double front doors and a 24 hr security guard yet the robbers managed to get in and come knocking on our apartment door. We were robbed of computers, cameras, jewelry, cash and more. The robbers had master keys to our safes and did not ask us to open them as well as a complete list of all occupied suites.The other tenants including the security guard and his wife were brought into our apartment and we were all tied up and held hostage for almost 2 hours before they left. There were three men plus more with whom they were communicating via cellphones. The police once they came were quite ambivalent about it all and the owners/ managers (two young ladies) were unapologetic or concerned about our ordeal and wellbeing. Initially the school too was not that helpful or sympathetic but later changed their attitude possibly due to a call from our Consulate. After much pressure from the school with threats of going to the press and a lawsuit, the owners/managers quite reluctantly paid us back our months rent. This was a horrific experience for us and frankly we were quite unimpressed by the Lugabe Management as well as IBL School. We booked our Spanish course based on the schools recommendation of this Apartment.
