Stay like you live there!

This was perfect for me. Traveling solo, the studio setup is enough space. I was able to appreciate the old building while staying there. Yes there are narrow staircases and no elevators, but that's not to be expected here in one of the oldest parts of Buenos Aires. Many of the structures here were occupied by the rich before a disease outbreak over a century ago. Now it's a lovely neighborhood called San Telmo, with so much historical character and European styled architecture. Even though the building is so old they still use skeleton keys, it is worth staying here. Just make sure you aren't too fat or you won't fit in the narrow front door! And remember whatever you travel with you WILL be carrying up and down a good 30 stairs in 2 narrow staircases. Once you are settled in however, ahh, time to drink wine and listen to the sounds of dancers practicing the tango in the square below, Plaza Dorrego. Overall, you will feel like a native when you're staying here.
