La Casita De San Telmo
Ranked #237 of 442 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed 3 March 2008

So we have just cleared customs at EZE after an all-night flight and are looking for the taxi we booked through La Casitas del San Telmo. Looking and waiting. Lots of drivers but no one with my name in the waiting area. I call the Casita. Someone answers and says it's not the right number, call the taxi number. The taxi number I'm given says call another number or call back in 5 minutes. 20 minutes later we've hired our own cab from the kiosk in the airport and are on our way. In a way, that introduction is about all you need to know about this little place.
Las Casita de San Telmo is a quaint and charming old home. The room we had was small, but the bed was comfy. We were there two nights only, but when we went to check out, the host Ana, confused us with another couple and wanted to charge us for a third night. After a few minutes of arguing about it, (we even showed her our arrival airplane tickets to prove the point) another guest helped to convince her we had been there only two nights. We left in a cab Ana called for us, smiling, on time, and glad to be on our way.

La Casita De San Telmo is a family home with several rooms available to let. Some rooms have their own bathroom and there are also shared facilities. There is a good sized kitchen which is available to all, and on occasion the family will invite you to dine with them. Also, there is an in house computer with good speed internet access, and I believe they also have wireless access. There is a nice indoor garden (with an available barbecue) and soon they will have an available dance studio should you wish to practice or schedule lessons with tango or something else. They have a website easy enough to find online though I'm guessing I can't post the URL here.

Personal info: I spent a month here on a trip where my focus was specifically to study tango and was very satisfied with my decision. The family who owns the house has a rich history with tango (the matron and her son are both singers) and the location is close to many tango venues, and also many other non-tango areas of interest (antiques market, Puerto Madera, etc.). I was treated very warmly and assisted in whatever I needed, yet also was given all the privacy I wanted. My primary host was a guy named Pablo (the son) who spoke very good English. My room was spacious and warm despite the winter temperatures, and the hot water in the bathroom worked fine (I've found this isn't always the case when I travel). The bed in my room was big, clean, and comfortable, although there are other, smaller rooms with smaller beds, I assume at a lower rate (however, this being Argentina, prices for accommodations are a bargain for many travelers from abroad--right now the general room rate at La Casita is about 20-25 US dollars per day, although it should be noted that the cost for accommodations in Buenos Aires is constantly in flux). Anyway, I had such a positive experience here I really wanted to share it and get the word out about this place.
