I want to move in. It was like walking into Miss Havisham's marshy mansion in Great Expectations. Filled with books, art and worldly things, you feel like you're truly immersed in the culture that was belle-epoque period of Tigre. This place stands out so much in my memory of Argentina that I couldnt wait to write the review. The location was ideal as well as it's across frmo all of the boat docks for the tours.The entire staff was tremendously friendly and helpful (and impressive English speakers- which is hard to find in Argentina). Every room seems to have it's own quaint balcony overlooking the property and the Beds were extremely comfortable as well.Our breakfast the next morning on the terrace was nothing short of picturesque. Staying true to the Argentine tradition, the meal is light, but the medialunas were to die for, and the coffee was served with hot steam milk. Was such a treat. Will definitely be coming back.
