Fun, Hip Loft in Heart of San Telmo

The Loft


Bohemian, soulful and loved, we say The Loft is our romantic vacation rental because it seems to attract all the honeymooners. It’s an intimate space, the soft light and vibrant colors, and the cozy upstairs bedroom, remind you that you’re on vacation.

The Loft is on the second floor of a turn-of-the-century building on Paseo Colon, a busy street with several important bus lines making it easy to get around to other parts of the city. Our guests love the bird cage elevator and funky layout of what is called a chorizo-style building.

Most suitable for a couple, three can comfortably sleep here with the third person occupying the futon in the living room. And since there are two bathrooms, there’s a bit more privacy if there are three of you.

For additional photos and information, read our blog post introducing The Loft to our collection.

Methods of Payment

Cash – We prefer that you pay in cash (US dollars) at the moment of check-in. There are no transaction fees or banking fees when you pay in cash, so this is the cheapest route.
Wire Transfer – You can pay by wire transfer to a US or European bank account. In this case, there is a $10 US banking fee to be paid by the renter in addition to the full rent. This should be paid before your arrival to ensure that it has reached our bank account by the time you are checking in.
Credit Cards – Credit cards can be used through PayPal. There is an additional 5% transaction fee charged by PayPal that will be added on to the rental amount. If you’d like to use your credit card or pay through PayPal, you will need to let us know in advance so that we can send the request (rent + 5%) to you before you leave home. You’ll have to pay this before leaving home because PayPal blocks access when you try to use your account while overseas.

We ask for a $100 USD deposit for short-term bookings. Please see our Rental Terms and Conditions for further details.

A very strategic location, The Loft is located on Paseo Colon which makes grabbing a cab or choosing a bus (there are tons with stops just below us) easy as can be. Walk two blocks up to Plaza Dorrego, the main square in San Telmo, or two blocks down to Puerto Madero.

We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have had such amazing guests over the years and we’re delighted to know they’ve loved our spaces and our services.


“Wow, what an amazing stay with Angela. I would highly recommend staying with her in any of her properties. They are funky, fun and well located. I not only got a great place to live but first hand recommendations from a local as well. Angela is the best host that I have had the pleasure of staying with in one year around-the-world travels. She made me feel like an old friend dropping by for a visit rather than a guest she was meeting for the first time. I stayed with Angela 6 weeks before moving to more permanent accommodation in BsAs (which she helping me find!). Angela is fabulous, generous person so much so that I now count her amongst my good friends in Buenos Aires after being here a mere 6 weeks. She is extremely helpful, cheerful, laid back and just plain fun to hang out with.”

Thomas and Karen

“We had a wonderful stay at Angela’s spacious and welcoming loft. The layout and design is superbly quirky. The location is fantastic: San Telmo quickly became our favorite neighborhood in Buenos Aires. And besides being a first class host, Angela also provides a guide to the neighborhood and city with local insights that outclass anything in our guide books. We would’ve been happy to stay another week or more – highly recommended!”

Martin and Kerstin

“What a great place – and an even better host! The apartment is ideally located and yet always quiet, with a well-stocked kitchen and everything else one might need, including also a pre-charged mobile phone (!) and a SUBE (Metro-)Card. Angela even put together a little handbook of San Telmo, B. A., and daytrips around the city that puts Lonely Planet and other guide books to shame.

We had a great time staying at the Loft and will definitely come back if we ever make it back to Argentina!”

    Great central San Telmo location! Market, Square, and Parrillas nearby. 20 minute walk to the subway, which makes travel to Palermo and Palermo Viejo a breeze. Plus, Angela is the best!!

  • Luiza June 8, 2009, 5:16 pm

    Hope to get to meet you guys at some point. I’m coming in July 3th an leaving in July 15th. Great blog by the way.
    Hugs from Brasil.

  • James March 10, 2009, 9:15 pm

    The Loft, it is a magical place, and so are its wonderful owners..This place is amazing..such a wonderful energy, and helped us fall in love with Buenos Aires and make it a home..We came for just a short stay..and now cant seem to leave…Gonzalo, Natty, and Angela..are three of the sweetest people We have ever met in our travels,

    It is worth staying just to meet them and for the chance of Gonzalo’s bbq’s! They helped us with whatever problems we had, no matter how small, any time day or night..You can not go wrong here..Take a chance, and you will be greatly rewarded..

    Is your loft available this winter, starting in July? What is the monthly rate?

  • santelmoloft May 5, 2008, 4:14 am

    Thanks La Tanguera… of course we love our loft, but we’re biased. Glad you like it too!

  • La Tanguera May 5, 2008, 1:40 am

  • Julie Feng April 15, 2008, 8:31 pm

    Beautiful loft. Just wondering if it’s available for rent for a 3 day weekend (25 – 28 Apr.). If yes, please let me know the rate.

    Enjoyed reading your blog and thank you.


  • santelmoloft February 6, 2009, 10:41 pm

    Hi Githa,

    Actually the loft does not have 2 bedrooms, but the pad (our second apartment in the same building) does.


  • santelmoloft June 8, 2009, 6:11 pm

    Luiza… yes, it’s a pity! But you’re going to love this building. We definitely do. And the other apartments I know of here that are listed as vacation rentals are really nice (not as nice as the loft ;-0 ) Do get in touch with us when you get here. Send us an email at We’d love to meet you and maybe introduce you to whoever is staying in the loft. It’s always great to meet other travelers. Um beijo (that’s about all I know in Portuguese)… Angela

  • santelmoloft June 24, 2009, 12:30 pm

    Ciao Carlo,

    I’ve just sent you an email. Thanks so much for getting in touch with us and we’re thrilled to know the blog info is useful!

    Mille grazie,

"We have rented many excellent apartments around the world during our travels, but The Loft may just be our favorite.
