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

I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for 4 nights. At first, I thought evertyhing was perfect. The hotel is very charming, the room was good (only the bathroom was a bit small - so small that the sink is located outside the bathroom), the bed was comfortable and I didn't find it noisy, despite some other comments from...

The owner, Maria Bautista is also the chef and chief woman in charge. A delightful property with high ceilings and quaint windows. Enjoyed being located near dinning and great coffee shops. Easy cab ride to neighborhoods and sightseeing. Most enjoyable stay.

This terrific little hotel is in the artsy district of Palermo Soho, so simply walking the neighborhood was entertaining. Located near mass transit, we also found it simple and quick to hail a cab. The hotel is charming, the breakfast and sitting rooms were full of appeal, and the layout with sitting nooks, greenery and fountains make this hotel unique.... More
