TravelPod Member ReviewsGiorgio's House Buenos Aires
While Giorgio's House was being renovated, we stayed with friends of one of the hostel owner, Ana. Claudia and Fernando were our most excellent hosts. They welcomed us into their apartment in a residential neighborhood of BA. We felt safe walking around at night. There are plenty of restaurantsand grocery stores nearby. The apartment was spotless, the WiFi strong, the water hot and the hospitality top notch. We left feeling like we had family in BA. On our last night, Fernando and Claudia cooked up the BEST empanadas we had ever eaten for me and my family, We are planning to return to BA and will stay here again!

It is interesting to see how different people react ...
... airport in the morning for our flight to London. It was the closest hotel to the airport and included a 'free' shuttle to and from the airport so there was no need to pay for taxi and we avoided the 40 plus minute ride to the city centre.
We weren't sure what food might be available at the hotel, so we decided to have a quick McDonald's meal before calling the hotel to come and pick us up.
Once we called, the driver arrived within about 15 ...

The tour had come to the end but before we left, Victoria gave us a quick lesson in “speaking with your hands”, a common practise that was no doubt taken from the Italian immigrants.
We left her a tip of 100 pesos and headed off in search of some lunch. We had read about Sipan, a Peruvian/Japanese fusion restaurant and found it on the corner of Florida and Paraguay (the streets!). It was about 3pm but being Argentina it was ...
