We had the pleasure of staying at The Fifth Floor for 6 nights during the last week of 2013. Miles and Veronica give you the feeling that you are at home from the beginning and we would recommend it to everyone who wants to enjoy the real Buenos Aires. The B&B looks beautiful with the art deco style and Miles and Veronica now their way around Buenos Aires clearly.
From a stylish bar where we were received by Danny, a friend of Miles and Veronica’s, with open arms to a simple street restaurant where we enjoyed the best Bife de Chorizo in three weeks (and which beat La Cabrera ten times in quality and fun!).
The concept of having an honesty bar and regular drinks between 7 and 9 PM (for those who would like to join) creates a very relaxed vibe that everybody enjoys. After everybody decides to go out for dinner for themselves or order in some Empanadas for example. In the morning eggs and breakfast as you like it freshly prepared.
They seem to know literally every place in Buenos Aires from bars, restaurants to shops. Juan, their local driver took us out shopping to the best shops in town and negotiated a better price for us.
All in all we had a fantastic time in Buenos Aires and for a big part thanks to Miles and Veronica. If you enjoy a personal touch, want to find the best places in town and meet great people definitely stay here!
