About

Our Guest Accommodations offer visitors a unique experience; to actually stay in one of those amazing buildings you often see when visiting another city, but can normally only wonder at what it must be like inside. The two-room suite, with exclusive balcony access and private bathroom, accommodates up to two couples. The living and dining rooms are at the complete disposal of our guests, as is the lovely patio, the small library of books and free wi-fi internet service. Exquisitely furnished with antiques of the period, it’s not only comfortable and pleasing to the eye, it presents the apartment in a historically accurate design. We are conveniently located at only 10-15 minutes and equidistant from all the city's main points of interest as well as only a block and half from the Loria subway station on the A line.

Fantastic!

4.8 on November 02, 2011

I had the pleasure of spending three nights at El Edificio de los Pavos Reales recently. As you can see from the photos, the place is beautiful. The room was very comfortable and the hosts were very helpful with suggestions of places to see. The Subte (subway) is only a few blocks away and it is quite easy to get around the city. I look forward to my next stay there!


Great value, central, great atmosphere and fabulous Innkeepers!

Best B&B ever. We were pleasantly surprised by the elegance of this centrally located building, the Innkeepers' attention to every detail and as a bonus, the value of their advice on what to see and where to go, not only in Buenos Aires but throughout Argentina.


Fabulous building, fabulous hosts and wonderful breakfasts!

The photos of El Edificio de los Pavos Reales attracted me to booking this B&B and the helpfulness of Kevin with all our emails and queries before we even went there reassured us we had made the right decision. The location is good in as much as it is equidistant from everywhere you might want to go and is close to a subway, so if you are not worried about staying in Palermo, you cant go wrong here. We had teh suite with the separate bathroom, which I was a bit nervous about, but actually didnt feel any loss of privacy. The room was beautiful and had a balcony. The road is noisy from traffic, but we were so tired each night, it had no impact on us whatsoever. If you need the dark to sleep, you will need an eyemask, but again caused us no issues. The whole apartment is beautiful and full of character, making you feel that you are really staying in a piece of history Kevin and Diego are very friendly and bend over backwards to help you. The pastries in a morning have added at least 3 inches to my waistline, but hey, you only experience this once, unless you are very lucky. I kept telling myself that the huge quantities of fresh orange juice was counteracting the effects! Although we arrived ridiculously early in the morning, Kevin got up and let us in allowing us to use the room straight away and gave us breakfast as he had no one using our room. Likewise, he was kind enough to allow us to use the room at the end of our stay, a very welcome relief. Even though we had several very early starts, Kevin always got us breakfast - you dont often get that! I defy anyone to get such value for money in Buenos Aires - or to go back home and talk as much about the building you stayed in as the sights you saw!


Great Place to Stay in Buenos Aires

4.6 on May 07, 2011

El Edificio de los Pavos Reales was a real treat ... one of the best parts of our stay in Buenos Aires! The B&B is small, just 2 rooms for guests, yet with high ceilings and an interior coutyard/light well, it actually felt quite spacious. Kevin and Diego are charming, cordial, and friendly hosts who continually go out there way to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Kevin was also especially helpful with suggestions on what to do, where to eat, and generally making sure we got the most out of our stay in BA. Both Kevin and Diego are bilingual (Spanish and English) and communicating was quite easy for us (our Spanish is quite poor). Highly recommended!!


Outstanding

A real pleasure to sleep in an ambience like a museum, you pay just for a room but you have a complete suite at your disposal, especially the atrium is a oasis when you come home from a sightseeng tour . We felt very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding, too.


Thank you

After a long flight from the UK , Kevin made our introduction to Buenos Aires and Argentina so special. The sevice was excellent the discussions thought provoking and the insight given to Beunos Aires life was second to none. Thanks again for making our stay , all be it short, in Argentina memorable.

Great place, great host

4.0 on March 08, 2010

This is a lovely place with great style, and the host Kevin could not have been more helpful or kind. I had high expectations from the website so the ratings for 'value' and 'cleanliness' are not half-hearted.


First Rate

Kevin and Diego were our favourite hosts in our 3 month trip around South America. Helpful and friendly, always professional and never intrusive, they made our stay in Buenos Aires! Excellent recommendations for cafes and restaurants and great suggestions for activities and excursions. Clean and comfortable accommodation, first rate breakfast.


Awesome place for a more authentic stay in BsAs

4.6 on February 22, 2010

El Edificio de los Pavos Reales is incredible. The owners could easily charge double and it would still be a good deal. This was our first stay in a Bed and Breakfast and it had the perfect amount of privacy and interaction with our host. Kevin was an excellent host and very accomadating. He knows the city brilliantly. Everywhere we went Kevin provided us with suggestions that definitely enhanced our stay. Great place and will recommend it to friends and family for sure.


Kevin is the best host I have ever met!

On Jan. 7th, my husband and I arrived in Buenos Aires with Kevin's detailed document explaining what to expect when we arrived. That was extremely helpful. In addition, he had a driver waiting for us, and we arrived promptly at his absolutely beautiful B&B. We stayed at El Edificio de los Pavos Reales for 3 days and nights, and Kevin helped us plan our time in Buenos Aires much better than we could have done for ourselves. He had maps available, information on how to use the SUBTE (subway system), touring suggestions, etc. His breakfasts were great for us - many fresh fruits, fresh-squeezed orange juice, cereal, yogurt, toast, fresh pastires, and a selection of drinks. We loved talking to Kevin and getting to know him. Not only is his B&B very nice, Kevin is an amazing person - very interesting and warm. Since he can speak both English and Spanish, there is no problem you can present to him that he cannot solve. The price of the B&B was extremely reasonable, and Kevin is completely flexible on the check-in, check-out hours. I don't know what we would have done if we had been staying at a different B&B because we needed these flexible hours. If you want to stay in charming, old-world B&B with beautiful wood, details, and design, you should definitely stay here. It is very tastefully decorated to represent the era in which it was built. I truly cannot say enough good things about the place or about Kevin. I cannot imagine how our trip could have turned out as well as it did had we been staying in another place. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Also, the neighborhood is FINE! We walked all over Buenos Aires, and walked all the way back to the B&B from El Centro two different nights, using two different streets. It was about a 30 block walk, but the weather was beautiful and the people and places we saw were very interesting. We got the true flavor of the city! Thanks a million, Kevin!
