You can book directly and safely on our website using the BOOK NOW button. Simply input the dates of your stay and it will display the apartments available. Or, if you would like, you can call us at one of our phone numbers, or Skype us at POETRYBUILDING. That way, we will confirm availability to you immediately. You can reserve your desired dates with a valid credit card (Visa and Mastercard) and by accepting our cancellation policy.
We ask for the total rent to be paid upon check-in. You can pay in cash or with credit card, in which case there is a 5% surcharge.
If you are part of a group occupying more than 3 apartments, we require a 30% deposit at the moment of booking, which will be subject to our cancellation policy.
The booking system only shows availability if an apartment is available for the entirety of your stay. It is quite likely that we have availability for you but you would be required to change apartments. Many guests prefer this as it gives them a chance to experience different units (each of them is unique). If you would like to explore this option, you can call us or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is it possible to book a date that does not yet appear to be available on your site? (i.e.- further in the future than what we have available on the site).
We generally release dates and rental rates about 6 months in advance. If you would like to make a reservation further in advance of that time, you can do so by emailing us. We will hold your dates for a particular apartment at no cost or obligation to you. Once we have set our prices, we will contact you. At that time you can accept or decline the reservation (again, at no cost).
We send you an email confirmation with our contact information, including phone number, address, your booking dates and total due.
Additionally, we send you our list of recommendations of things to do here in Buenos Aires.
Our cancellation policy is a return of all deposits less a USD 50 service fee if we are notified more than 15 days in advance of check-in. Within 15 days of check-in, you will be charged 50% of your entire rental amount. Cancellations made within 72 hours of 2pm check-in time or no-shows are charged the full rental amount and reimbursed based on our ability to re-rent the apartment.
For groups booking 4 apartments or more the same conditions above apply but a 30% reservation deposit is required upon booking.
Our cancellation policy is without exception.
