San Telmo 8.5 - Buenos Aires Apartments For Rent

San Telmo 8.5 Review

I was at first interested in renting an apartment in Palermo or Recoleta. But then I was told by someone I had just met in Berlin that when I visit Buenos Aires the place to stay is really this 8.5 apartment in San Telmo. I had previously stayed in Palermo and I did tend to agree with him that I thought that Palermo is becoming too trendy and with all the new high rises it doesn't have that old world charm of some of the other sections of the city. So I was able to get a reservation at 8.5 in San Telmo and was very happy with my choice.

Apartment 8.5 (or Ocho Punto Cinco as it's often referred to) is situated closely to the world-famous art district and Dorrego Square.
I found the 800 square foot apartment to be the perfect size for me. In the past the littel 40 or 50 square meter apartment of Palermo I found to be just too small. But here the large open rooms and queen master bed (as well as the smaller bed upstarirs) I found to be perfect.

The 8.5 apartment is in the beautiful French style. It has high ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors and customized stained glass. The apartment is large and airy and allow for lots of sunshine in the living room study and bedroom areas. It's important not to forget the gorgeous spiral staircase that leads to a storage area and also a bedroom on the upper floor. The furniture is customized and you also find amongst the modern appliances.

The overall design theme and feel of the apartment is modern classical however, it still embodies old world charm that you may find throughout Buenos Aires. The 8.5 apartment has many amenities. They include a queen-size bed that has four posts, top-of-the-line bed linens and blankets, an armoire a workspace area that includes a desk where one can work or study. There are also wooden doors, beautiful hardwood floors and the master bedroom is air-conditioned. There is also a quaint kitchen nook where one can eat breakfast. I also found the antique bath tub very relaxing and a nice break from the city.

Individuals or families will also find modern appliances such as a washing machine, refrigerator, microwave, a coffeemaker and everything that you will need to make a delicious meals. There is also cleaning service once a week, so you don't have to be worried about handling that chore yourself. Apartment 8.5 is located off of the main street, so you don't have to worry about a lot of traffic or constantly being disturbed by noise. There are also security doors within the apartment allowing you to feel safe while in the city. I also appreciated that the doors would completely block out the noise and light so in case I wanted to take an afternoon nap, that would be easy to do.

In review, San Telmo 8.5 is perfect for individuals who plan to visit Buenos Aires and don't want to stay in a hotel.
