“Fabulous hotel, loved the decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The staff at Malabia House were wonderful, really friendly and helpful. I loved my room with it's high ceiling and trompe l'oeil painting on the top of one wall. This place is well-located in Palermo Viejo, stylish, with lots of good restaurants and cafes nearby. Good breakfast, available all day.

We found the staff very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is quite pretty inside with lovely high ceilings. The breakfast was good and coffee and tea were available all day. The breakfast room with one table for 8 or so was sometimes full and you would not have a place to sit. The location is very good with many excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. Next time we would book a room with an ensuite bath as darting across the hall hoping no one would walk by felt a little uncomfortable. In general a nice hotel.

Room Tip: We had the first room after the kitchen on the main floor. The bathroom was across the hall which wa...

We stayed here for two nights in January 2012, but hadn't yet joined Trip advisor, so did not write a review then. Recommended to us by Argentinian friends. Comfortable room, tiny, but perfectly adequate, bathroom. Extremely helpful, knowledgable and friendly staff. Gave us great dinner recommendations in neighborhood. Very good breakfasts served in pleasant surroundings. Met interesting people. Palermo Viejo an interesting walking neighborhood. Only complaint about neighborhood was very uneven sidewalks, so had to look more down than around.

Dear Guest,

We felt honored by your words. It is very important for us to know the opinion of our guests and, knowing that your stay in our house was satisfactory comforts us greatly.
Regarding your complaint, it is a big problem of old neighborhoods like Palermo, San Telmo or La Boca. While the city government usually repair the streets, quickly snapp back. Good thing is that little details as the streets, give Palermo Neighborhood a particular look and an interesting style.

We hope to have you back soon!

I stayed at this hotel 3 nights with my wife. Most impressive one was wonderful hospitality of hotel staffs. The classic style room was super clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was very good. Nice atmosphere and would stay again.

My husband and I stayed at Malabia House in early September and were warmly welcomed as soon as we set foot in the door. Arriving after a long overnight flight, we were offered coffee and breakfast first thing, and immediately felt at home. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and spoke English very well. The location in Palermo Soho is perfect - within walking distance are a number of restaurants, cafes, bars, and boutiques, and the subway is an easy 10 minute walk away. I always felt safe walking around the neighborhood, even well after dark. Our room was comfortably appointed and felt cozy with character. Noise does travel a bit between rooms, but we were so relaxed and at ease during our stay that I hardly noticed. We would love to return!

I wrote my first review of this excellent small hotel after my first stay in Feb 2009. My last stay, May 2012, marked my 4th stay. I have been an international traveler since 1976. In my all of my travels I have not found a hotel that could match Malabia House. In my 2009 review my closing remarks went along this line, " I wished I could just fold up Malabia House and packed into my backpack/carry-on, so that I would have the Malabia experience where ever in the world that I went to next!" That should sum it up very nicely. So make a reservation early and don't miss this wonderful little hotel in a trip to B. A.

My apologies to the staff & owner for this late review.

Room Tip: There are rooms with abart ensuite & other have a bathroom in hallway. However these bathrooms...
