I am a real estate investment advisor living in southern california. This Penthouse is my second home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Valentino's is my second home. I love Latin American People and culture. I also love the excitement of big city life, so Buenos Aires combined these two passions for me.

Its all about the location in Palermo Soho. This is my favorite part of Buenos Aires and Valentino's is in the heart of it. There are lots of great areas of BA, however it is easy to just stay in Palermo Soho. I also love the Sycamore tree-lined street of Thames and it's proximity to the subway.

SO GOOD THE FIRST TIME, WE RETURNED!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second extended stay at the penthouse, and it was just as excellent this year as last. First, the location of the apartment could not be any better. It is located in a great area--lots of shopping and restaurants, while still having a neighborhood feel. It is a 10 minute walk to the subte station at Plaza Italia. The neighborhood has a great energy, while not being as "gritty" as other neighborhoods. I really would not want to stay elsewhere.

The apartment itself is terrific--it has everything you need for a terrific short or long stay. We used the kitchen a lot, and had no issues with finding the right tools, etc. The bed is super comfy, and my daughter joined us for a portion of the trip and slept on the futon in the living room. Cable tv, wifi and a computer printer are nice touches. The apartment is super safe--the only apartment on the floor--and quiet. We all slept like babies while there. We've learned to master the washer/dryer, which is different than those in the US, but works great. We pack lightly and have more room for souvenirs!

Finally, Thom, Guille and Aldo (airport transfer, if requested) are all amazing. They are responsive, helpful, kind, etc. Our trips would not have been the same without their help. I think of them as our friends now.

You will not regret staying here!

ARGENTINIAN ARCHITECT THAT LIVES IN MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA.

  • 5 out of 5
I am an Argentinian Architect that lives in Miami Beach, Florida. I spent two months with my 30+ daughter at Thom's Penthouse in Palermo Soho, as I don't have a home there anymore. I loved the Penthouse, the neighborhood, everything! The apartment is better than the pictures! all my friends and family that visited me loved it. We had such a good time that we did not want to leave. The place is so comfortable, it has everything that you need to make your stay wonderful. The area became one of the most seeked for tourists to go, nightlife is fantastic, it is safe and with lots of restaurants and stores.There is also a very good and inexpensive Gym around the block, my daughter went there every day and had a private instructor with no extra charge. Having your private elevator take you to your unit is a big plus. The big terrace was unique, we had breakfast there almost everyday. You don't find these terraces so often because there is only one per building on a high floor. It has all the commodities you need. Plenty of light everywhere! Bathroom with Jacuzzi, complete kitchen with new state of the Art appliances, plasma TV in living room. Great bedroom with a wonderful bed and open view on both balconies. It was so calm and quiet that we slept until noon as we were on vacations. It also has another bathroom, your own washer and dryer a BBQ, Computer, Printer Fax, if you have to work. A special word for the way the unit is kept. I am very detail oriented and linens and towels were perfect. Also the housekeeper and the manager never left us unattended and gave us more towels and extra linens just in case we might need them. I will definitely go back to Thom's Penthouse when I return to South America and my special thanks to Thom, he was so helpful with all my concerns before arriving to his home. Renata

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

We had the pleasure to stay at the penthouse for a week and it was wonderful. Truly one of the best locations you can find in Buenos Aires. The Palermo Viejo neighborhood (also called Palermo Soho) has some of the most unique and fun shops you will find and there are some of the best restaurants in town literally right out the door from the building. The unit is also close to the subway stop which is really convenient. The space gets a ton of natural light w/ floor to ceiling windows and a great breeze. Thom is very professional and his crew in Buenos Aires could not have been more helpful with everything from arranging transportation to/from the airport with a driver to the sweetest housekeeper ever. The only side note would be there is some noise at night from an adjacent train station nearby (but in a huge metropolis like Buenos Aires some kind of noise is almost unavoidable). Also the hot tub upstairs doesn't really work any longer and the laundry is a single unit "steam dry" European style unit that was a bit of a challenge to operate. The space is well kept though and the large terrace gives you great outdoor space. Overall it was lovely and we would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: This guest is an architect and therefore appreciates the natural lighting and amount of glass used in the design and construction of the condo. However, there is a serious mistake in the comments. The condo is not adjacent to a train station. The station is 11 blocks away. The railroad track that separates Palermo Soho from Palermo Hollywood is four blocks away. The trains on this track run very few times a day and there noise has never been a concern of prior guests nor to me as the owner. If anything they have a charm to them. This guest told me prior to his visit that he was a light sleeper, so that fact should be considered along with his comments. Also, the washer/dryer works fine but takes getting used to. The hot tub is not in good condition and is not promoted on the website. Regards, Thom

BEST CONDO EVER

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just arrived home from a month-long stay in Thom's condo. I can't say enough about how beautiful the condo was and how perfectly located in a safe, convenient and lovely neighborhood. The immediate area around the apartment was filled with boutiques, restaurants and, across the street, was the best coffee shop in BA. We felt like we were in Park Slope or Greenwich Village. Thom and his manager, Guille, were a pleasure: honest, communicative and available to answer all questions and help out.

We had never been to BA before and were nervous about the commitment to a place sight unseen. But as soon as we walked into the apartment, we were at home and extremely happy.

The bed was very comfortable, the shower strong with plenty of hot water, the use of a computer and cell phone generous and extremely convenient, the apartment was quiet, and the overall experience was so special I cannot accurately describe it without an overabundance of superlative adjectives. And I haven't yet mentioned the views from the balconies (which were wonderful).

Guille arranged for a driver to and from the airport. She helped us exchange money and find a local travel agent so that we could visit Iguazu Falls. Thom was VERY honest about everything and answered all of our questions by return email. We returned today and just received an email that our deposit has already been sent back to us. The entire experience was more than we could have expected and we are very grateful to both Thom and Guille.

We have travelled all over the world and I have never written such a glowing review. But it is well deserved. Thank you Thom and Guille for making our escape from winter so memorable.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN BUENOS AIRES!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spent the last week in January, 2014 here. It is a VERY comfortable apartment and we enjoyed our stay there very much.

It is located on the 7th floor-8th to us gringos because the ground floor is considered "0" here. So whatever street noise might have been going on was negligible to us. In addition the main bedroom is in the back, away from the street so we never noticed any appreciable noise.

There is lots of room as the living room area and dining area are large. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. The closet room between the bedroom and main bathroom was large and had plenty of room to hang and store everything so we didn't have clutter in the rest of the apartment.

The front patio is lovely with nice furniture and potted plants. Great place to sit and enjoy the view and trees that line the street. The apartment has air conditioning but most of the time if you just open the front and back patio doors the cross breeze is enough to keep the temperature comfortable and the breeze is pleasant.

We felt very safe there and in the neighborhood. It was easy to get around. We like to walk so we can see the shops and check out what shops, restaurants and coffee or ice cream spots we might want to visit. But if you don't want to walk taxis are very reasonable and the subte (subway) is close for longer trips. A taxis we took from downtown near Plaza San Martin cost about 50 pesos, about $5 at the time. Most everywhere else we went cost about 30 pesos, about $3US.

Lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. I liked El Preferido which is at the corner of Guatamala and Borges, the next street over from Thames. Very much a neighborhood place. Not as fancy as some of the others, but authentic. Any place you go for dinner if you go between 8 pm and 8:30 you have the pick of the seats. About 9:15 the locals start coming in.

Thom and his manager, Guille, were very, very helpful, accommodating and informative. Always quick to respond to emails or texts. I concur with all the props that the other reviewers have said about them.

So unless you are use to staying at the Ritz I think you would be very happy with a stay here.
