I showed up early as I came in on a bus after a 15 hour ride from Mendoza. I was tired and I needed to arrange transportation to Uruguay. They spent a lot of time with me assisting me in this endevour. I liked the look of the hotel, although it is a little older. I felt like it had... More

Awful hotel. We stay for the new year day, and our experience was terrible. The owner, a crazy woman, open the front door and every rooms, like her house. She ended up in an ambulance¡! Stolen money from the room, and the services are not a great thing. Poor breakfast and not confortable, you need to wait, dont have a... More

We spent 5 nights in Buenos Aires and everyone of them we spent in this absolutely charming little B&B located in the Palermo section. It is a renovated convent that holds onto the old world style with a modern and comfortable update. It is in a great part of town. Lot's of little terrific places to eat and shop close... More

After a very long plane ride I was so happy to finally arrive at Malabia House. I was met by Paula & Paulo who knew that I had a long trip as I was due in in the morning and I didn't get there until the afternoon. They made me feel right at home immediately. I spent the entire stay... More

1555 Malabia House was a perfect base for a weekend in BA. Situated in the Palermo neighborhood, it is in close walking distance to cafes, bars, shopping and green spaces. A bonafide history nerd, I was drawn to the past history of the building as a convent and interested in the architectural details that still exist today. The charming interior... More

I planned to stay 3 nights, but ended up there 4 due to a storm preventing me from getting home. By the end of my visit, I was sad to leave, as it had come to feel like home. I had several other friends staying just around the corner at the Muse, but I was happy to be nearby in... More

We were supposed to stay 5 nights in this hotel. My friend and me each booked a room. To be fair, the hotel is amazingly located in a beautiful, old building. The rooms are very charming. But after a shocking incident in the third night, we decided to leave the hotel. When the receptionist came to wake up me and... More

I stayed here a week. Breakfast everyday was excellent and my room was cleaned daily. The building is charming and well located to all the attractions in Palermo. Yes the bathroom is small but I was not on a tour of bathrooms. Like the rest of the country, the service can sometimes be sketchy but at least they are nice... More

The Malabia House is easy to miss if you're not looking closely on the street...very unassuming from the outside. But once inside it's really a unique place. Big vaulted ceilings, open courtyards indoors, and some beautiful rooms. The only complaint re: the room was that the bathroom was miniscule. As in, could barely even take a shower because I couldn't... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
