If you’re roaming around San Telmo in this heat, you’ll surely want to stop off for a fresh drink. The most visited cafe in the area is Cafe Dorrego on Plaza Dorrego, but it’s often hard to find a seat. Instead try El Federal on Carlos Calvo and Peru. Built in 1864 and incredibly well-kept, the bar itself is stunning, as are the cash registers.While there two weeks ago, a tango trio played a few songs before passing a hat, a young couple snuggled in a dark corner, a table of four elderly women laughed and drank lemonade, and my friend and I had a refreshing beer before heading back out into the crowds and sweat.
I am the founder of San Telmo Loft. In 2007, I bought The Loft and began renting it out as I had already signed a two-year contract in another apartment. Owners in the same building asked me to rent out their apartments when they weren't in town. And from there, our collection of vacation rentals grew to include a number of other soulfully decorated, vintage-inspired, apartments in historic buildings. I currently live in New Orleans and travel back to Buenos Aires twice a year.
"We have rented many excellent apartments around the world during our travels, but The Loft may just be our favorite. It is situated perfectly in the heart of San Telmo, where a Bohemian vibe is tangible. Angela was always accessible and extremely helpful. We highly recommend the apartment and can not say enough good things about Angela."
