Villa de la Plata is a guest house that includes two apartments ( 2 bedrooms each) plus two small student rooms on the top floor. Most of the top floor is a lovely plant-filled terrace with great views of the city. Our gracious hostess Señora Ruth and her dog Pitufitu (as well as her husband) are the owners; they live in other parts of the house. We have the 2nd floor apartment (that is, up 2 flights – we would call this the 3rd floor at home). The benefit of walking up 2 flights is the great views. Villa de la Plata is just 3 blocks from Plaza 25 de Mayo, the main square at the center of the old city.
