Joe, if I may ask..Joe said:I made the mistake of booking a place online for a month. As others have advised, it is better to rent short term, either a few days in hotel or a week at most in an apartment.
My apartment is fine but extremely noisy due to the traffic (also very bad air due to the car/bus exhaust). This might not bother some people but I really regret booking for a month by internet!
I'd look for a place on a high floor (better air, less noise, more light) or contrafrente (on the back of the building). BsAs is very noisy so finding a quiet apartment is a challenge...
I'm using stayinba.com and they have been good about showing me places for my next month.

Which area of town are you in now and which agency did you originally use to find that place?
