About the Homestay
We open the doors of our new house, located in the 'porteño' heart of the city, where tango is breathed in every corner. Surrounded by the typical 'milongas' and most recognized Tango spaces in the world.
We want you to feel at home when you are away from yours. We offer you a very large private room with a vintage touch for 2 people with a new Queen double bed and a beautiful balcony overlooking the street and light breakfast, in a renovated and typical house in Buenos Aires.
Alma de Bohemia Casa & Tango is our home, new, recycled brand new and is located on the first floor by stairs. We are a family of 3 adults who love music, silence, company, Buenos Aires and their customs.
Its construction reflects the centenary style of the time, living together with a careful renovation. Everything in the house is new and brand new:
• It has 3 spacious and comfortable private rooms, decorated with a vintage touch. If you want to maintain privacy even when working with a notebook, reading a book or eating in your room you have a table and chairs for that inside.
• A shared room where you can read, watch TV, listen to music or spend a relaxing time in the company of other guests.
• The kitchen is also a shared space where you can prepare your own food or share meals with other people.
• The large dining room table will allow you a great exchange of experiences with the other inhabitants of the house, have breakfast, sharing and drinking 'Argentine mate', enjoying reading or just hanging out.
• There are 2 bathrooms, one of them with shower.
• Our open-air patio will receive you when you go to the mezzanine kitchen or if you just want to spend some time to receive fresh air. You will also enjoy the 'Argentine barbecue' by the hosts;) * with additional cost *
Alma de Bohemia Casa & Tango is my mother's house and eventually mine too. She has a vast experience hosting and receiving tourist travelers making them feel comfortable, well cared for and with the personal touch of home away from home. Both my sister and I have learned this from her.
We will share the spaces with the guests during their stay. Usually they will find one or more of us walking around the house during the day, so they will have no trouble asking their questions, asking for recommendations or whatever they may need.
We will share with the guests all the common spaces with the exception of the personal and private rooms of each one. The common spaces are: living room, kitchen, patio and bathrooms.
You can also optionally hire Tango classes with Belén Cafasso; one of the hosts of Alma de Bohemia, teacher and professional dancer.
