This was my third visit here, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Buenos Aires! I've stayed in several other B & Bs and hotels in the city, and nothing has compared with the cleanliness, friendliness, and quiet in this B & B. I've met lovely guests from around the world, and joined them and Ada and Valentyn for dinner and tango at a couple of different traditional milongas. I don't dance a step, but I love learning more about this aspect of Argentine culture, and Valentyn and Ada offer access available to few tourists in the city.
One thing that other reviewers haven't mentioned: the B & B is ideal for solo travelers as well as couples and friends. Sometimes it can be lonely exploring a new city by oneself, but as a woman traveling alone, I've always felt entirely safe and well-cared-for here. It's also an enormous bargain -- I've stayed in other places that had rooms the size of a closet. At Ada and Valentyn's Paris-style apartments, the rooms have 5-meter/ 15-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, refinished antiques, interesting framed vintage tango sheet music, plenty of armoire space, wifi, fresh towels, extra blankets for chilly nights, and space to spread out a suitcase and organize things.
As others have mentioned, the location is extremely convenient -- all the subway lines are within walking distance, as are many of the city's tourist sites. A laundry, 2 convenience stores, and the city's oldest bookstore are around the corner, and the Feria de San Telmo, the Sunday craft, kitsch, and antiques fair, is half a block away. Calle Florida (which can be a tourist trap) now has a historic cafe, London City, on the corner of the Avenida de Mayo; the modern art museum is also close by, and the B & B is in the heart of the oldest part of Buenos Aires.
