This boutique hotel is located in a very nice section of Palermo. The subway station is only a 10 minute walk away and there are many great restaurants within walking distance as well. The staff at the hotel is very attentive. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. Hard to get wi-fi in room though. Great place to stay!

The location is great for walking around the Palermo Soho, cabs to everywhere are cheap and metro line is about 7-8 blocks away. The place is clean and looks very good. The big downsides are: 1) The room is noisy and there is light coming in from everywhere, if you like a silent dark room to sleep you'll be in... More

Sebastian is a real sweetheart; he and the hostess was so accommodating; we traveled all night and arrived early for our room. She said check in time was 3 but she would get us a room as soon as possible. AND she did. Sebastian helped with our breakfast, which was very nice and he helped with printing our boarding passes;...

given the price (100 usd a night) i was disappointed. the room was good but had no window. the bathroom was very very tiny and there were lots of black marks on the wall, looked kind of old. the service was super friendly but slightly disorganised. the location however is awesome.

It had been three years since we last visited lovely Buenos Aries and stayed in Malabia House. While some little touches have not been retained the pleasure of being there has not decreased and i would recommend the hotel to my very best friends. What makes Malabia House so special? There is a feeling of calm and safe haven there... More

Beautifully restored former convent. It maintains character of convent and provides a wonderful stay, and respite from the hectic energy of Buenos Aires. The hotel is located one street away from the center of Palermo Soho - so you are right by the action, but on a much quieter street. The hotel feels narrow (it was a convent after all)... More

I stayed in this B&B for 4 nights and loved it! I arrived close to midnight and even so they took the time to understand what my plan was for BA and showed me on the map the city and what to do. I had no expectations as I got a really good price for the room. But it was... More
