Bed and Breakfast Buenos Aires | La Perla
5 stars - "We could not be happier" Mari Anne H
Planning for a place to stay so far from home where I do not speak the language is daunting. After researching areas I narrowed down our choices, read the reviews and contacted La Perla almost a year ago. From the first email, which is answered quickly, I felt we might have found the perfect spot.
The time Valentyn and Ada take to make sure you are cared for is very good. His advice for money exchange, buses, trains, and what wines to drink has been helpful, no question was too small for him to take the time to answer fully. He gives you the options and leaves it to you to follow or not follow his advice.
There was a heat wave while we were here. So we got to see Buenos Aires in the muggy heat and then in the normal temps of their end of summer days. There is a fan in the room, Windows that open but no air conditioning. Not a problem for us.
The room with the ensuite was excellent. Clean, lots of hot water, well stocked and very comfortable beds.
The breakfast was more than filling with home made breads, fresh fruit, specialty coffee and tea, fresh squeezed Orange juice. Here we could also stop as we came in from a busy day, grab an apple and a jug of water to refresh ourselves. Just outside the main door is a small market where you can pick up a snack or drink. Around the corner is a coffee shop. Nothing is far from the B and B.
This was an excellent location for getting around. The Playa de Mayo is just a block away as is the Subte station and buses run on neighbouring streets. Valentyn had a Subte card ready for us and helped us to charge up the card and suggest where to go and options for getting there.
We decided to take a couple of Tango lessons. Little did we know how lucky we were to do this. Ada and Valentyn 'fixed' our tango enough that we could dance at the Milongo without making too much of a mess of things. At the second and third Milongo the whole "familia" (all the guests) joined in the fun. Valentyn made sure a taxi was called for those that needed one and led the rest of us by Subte. At the end of the night, or rather 4 and 5 in the morning he made sure we got a taxi and told the driver where to take us before taking a taxi himself.
If you would love to be part of Buenos Aires and be part of the familia stay here.
5 stars - "An Elegant and Conveniently Located BA B&B" IP Peterson
Ada and Valentyn host their guests on the third floor of an elegant historic apartment building, with an entrance courtyard and an iron -grilled Parisian style elevator! Our room was enormous, and very quiet as no rooms face the street. There is plenty of light, albeit no views. Breakfast, with wonderful cappuccino, is served on another floor in a gracious dining room, as our hosts' property is on several floors. Valentyn helped with our daily itineraries and he and Ada (a tango instructor) invited us to join them for an evening of dancing. The location, very near the Plaza de Mayo, was convenient for both walking and use of the subway system. We stayed with them for three nights, and recommend La Perla without reservation.
5 stars - "Perfect base to explore Buenos Aires" Matthew S
"La Perla Bed and Breakfast is the ideal oasis of calm from which to explore the exciting chaos of Buenos Aires. We were made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable by Ada and Valentyn, with excellent breakfasts (great homemade bread!), lots of help and suggestions for travelling around the city, and clean, spacious rooms to relax in. They were both incredibly friendly, and if you get a chance to visit a Milonga with them, don't miss it, although be prepared for a very late night - like most things in Argentina!"
5 stars - "Excellent city center b&b" Noemi M
"We stayed in June in this b&b located in an emblematic building of the historic center. Many interesting spots are on walking distance, other parts of Buenos Aires can easily be visited by subway or bus. There are 3 subway stations at 2 minutes walking from this B&b.
Ada and Valentyn recommend you to not only visit the touristic highlights, but also some less known places, to know the authentic way of life of the Argentinians. We joined them to a milonga (a dance hall) to see locals dancing the tango. We also took a few tango lessons from Ada, who is profesional tango teacher. The rooms are beautifully decorated with a lot of original details and everything is spotless. Every morning there is homemade bread, freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit. Highly recommended!
