About Ruben Franco

I am a South African Infectious Diseases doctor who loves to entertain, cook for and dine with friends all over the world. I love animals but cats in particular whom unfortunately cant travel with me.

Ruben Franco purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ruben Franco chose San Telmo

Of all the Buenos aeries suburbs, San Telmo is the most unique. Compared to Recoleta or Palermo which are no different from high rises in other international destinations, San Telmo provides me with a feeling of the 'real' Argentina. San Telmo ('Saint Pedro González Telmo') is the oldest barrio (neighborhood) of Buenos Aires. It is a well-preserved area of the Argentine metropolis and is characterized by its colonial buildings. Cafes, tango parlors and antique shops line the cobblestone streets, which are often filled with artists and dancers. The apartment is very close to Plaza Dorrego, located at the intersection of Humberto Primero and Defensa streets. Along with La Boca, Florida Street, and others, Plaza Dorrego is one of the main tourist attractions of Buenos Aires. It is also close to the official executive mansion of Argentina, the 'Pink house' or Casa Rosada, made famous by movies on Eva Peron as well as other local attractions including within walking distance, the nouveau suburb of Puerto Madero with its waterfront restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in an colonial building but after entering from the bustling Defensa street and Dorrego plaza nearby, through the building's locked frontdoor and antiquated passage , an extremely quiet and private, modern 'clean' space awaits. The most unique benefit for me is the open private courtyard/patio with its outdoor dining area (undercover in case it rains) and gas BBQ as well as the jacuzzi/shower 'wetroom', both of which are rare to find in Buenos aeries. It is not only conveniently located close to public transport but is situated opposite the San Telmo market for meat, vegetables and fruit. In a single block radius a fresh fish shop, amazing wine shops and several excellent restaurants including La Brigada can be found. My favorite rituals include breakfast coffee and croisants on Dorrego square. At night, a beer and unshelled peanuts at Dorrego bar (the 1st bar in Buenos Aires, established in 1881) followed by an Asado (BBQ) at the apartment, sitting outside sipping a glass of Torrontes or Malbec.

Great Stay in Buenos Aires!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Great place to stay and conveniently located in bustling San Telmo. Apartment was just as advertised (actually better). It was comfortable, ultra modern and functional. Many shops, cafes, restaurants within walking distance including food markets and curio shops. Perfect for a stay without a car. Ruben is a fantastic and gracious host and provided helpful information and practical advise to take in sites, tours, shopping etc. He was extremely attentive and was always willing to assist. I would recommend the property and plan to stay again!!!

Owner's Response: The perfect location on historic Defensa street around the corner from Plaza Dorrego with its tango’s and outdoor cafe’s as well as being surrounded by food markets, wine stores, ice cream parlours, antique shops etc, the apartment that is very private, safe, spacious and comfortable, does make for a ” great stay in Buenos Aires” . Our gracious host Ruben is indeed the Buenos Aires “ Wikipedia”

Great Location

  • 5 out of 5
An Ideal location on Defensa in the San Telmo area, near the Mercado, close to grocery stores and many restaurants within a block or two, this unit was quiet, comfortable, and spacious. It was jut 2 of us, and we made omelets, spaghetti, and enjoyed pate and cool vino Blanco from our refrigerated white wine selection (and Malbecs at a fraction of USA prices, even in restaurants. ) Ruben was very helpful and gave us a comprehensive tour of the Ricoleta cemetery, and a nice lunch nearby. It is a 2 min walk to Plaza Dorrego, with tango dancing, jazz, restaurants and table in the plaza.

Owner's Response: Your review is greatly appreciated Gary, as Ruben goes out of his way to make visitors feel at home in this rather secluded apartment despite being meters away from the markets, restaurants and wine stores.

Convenient and Comfotrable, With Great Service as Well

  • 5 out of 5
Three of us spent five days at the apartment in San Telmo recently, and really enjoyed our stay.
The apartment itself had all the amenities we wanted, and was located in funky San Telmo with its abundance of shops and restaurants, as well as a reasonable 20 minute walk to Plaza de Mayo.
The manager Reuben was a great host for the propriety, offering what amounted to a personal concierge service that included touring advice, putting us in touch with a great tango instructor and spending a day with us as a personal tour guide and cook at a very reasonable hourly rate.



We would happlily stay in the property when visiting the city in future.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your review Paul. I am delighted that you had a great time at our apartment and in San Telmo. Compared to other suburbs, one always gets the feeling that is the "real" Buenos Aires. Ruben is an extra-ordinary person, and with his vast knowledge and dedication, we are honoured to have him as host.

Lovely apartment with all comforts in a great location

  • 4 out of 5
I spent four nights in this apartment and was quite pleased. It's located on Defensa in a perfect location for a weekend stay. The courtyard is perfect for morning coffee and reading and there is little noise from the neigbors. The bed is extremely comfortable and the shower and hot tub/jacuzzi are great for washing off after a full day of walking around Buenos Aires. The kitchen is perfect for making meals for a few people. DirecTV is available and the music channels are nice to have on if you're reading, cooking or relaxing.

This location is perfect and secure. It's great for the weekend markets in San Telmo and there are tons of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops around. It's an easy location to get to other parts of the city and is about a 15 minute walk to Plaza de Mayo and Casa Rosa.

I will return to BA one day and if I'm going with four or less people (two couples) I would definitely consider this as an affordable, wonderfully located housing option for a long weekend or a week stay.
