The hotel is in a nice neighborhood at a converted convent. We were originally given a room upstairs that had an adjoining bathroom (we knew this when we booked). What we didn't know was that this adjoining bathroom is not exactly next door to the room (as we thought it might be ). It's actually down the hall from the room. Needless to say that didn't work for us (walking down the hall in a towel back and forth? No, thanks!). So we requested a change and they accommodated us (with an extra charge but we were ok with that). The second room was downstairs across from a courtyard. The room was very large and quite lovely. Its bathroom (inside the room) was very very small but adequate. Clean room and comfortable bed. The only negative thing about this room was that other guests tend to use the courtyard in the morning or evening (to smoke? Not sure ) and at times they had loud conversations literally outside our room. We thought the hotel could perhaps put a sign in the courtyard reminding the guests to keep it down as there's a room right across. I am almost certain the loud guests didn't think the door across from the courtyard leads to an actual hotel room, as the architecture of the place is fairly unique (and charming). The staff were AMAZING. For those reviewers who complain about misunderstandings with the staff, we found that they spoke decent English if you speak to them clearly and patiently. English is not their first language and we didn't speak Spanish but we had no issues talking with them about all kinds of topics, weather, restaurants, news etc. The breakfast was delicious and served in a quaint room with nice settings. The girl who made the pancakes was super friendly and a good chef. We actually looked forward to the breakfast for the 5 days we stayed there. There's a money exchange place not too far from the hotel that had good rates and came in handy as it is a cash society (although credit cards are accepted at all major shops and restaurants). The subway system is by far one of the best we've seen in any country and it is extremely inexpensive. We went to different ends of town for a whole week with almost exclusively on subway. Ended up using taxi once or twice which was fine and again very inexpensive. Not all taxi drivers know the hotel's location as it is a smaller one but they know the street (which is pronounced Malavia for those English speakers who don't know Spanish).

Excelent hotel in Buenos Aires. It is a historical building.We have stayed in a modern room, which was confortable and clean. The bathroom could be bigger.The breakfast is good and the staff has received us very well.
Well located. Malabia is in Palermo Soho, very close to pubs, restaurants and stores.

I thoroughly enjoyed my week at Malabia House. The hotel is within a former convent that has been converted into a beautiful little hotel. The location is ideal for exploring Buenos Aires, and it surrounded by restaurant cafes. Easy access of metro for full access of the city. Rooms are well equipped combining traditional old building with contemporary interior. Staff were very friendly and very tolerant of my lack of Spanish skills. I would certainly happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel will be more protected from noise, although it is a relatively quiet neighbourhood.

1555 Malabia House, a boutique hotel is located in the heart of Palermo Soho, away from the centre of Buenos Aires. There are 14 rooms.This is a wonderful location, a very vibrant district. With an endless supply of restaurants and many outlet shops. It's walking distance to The Botanic Gardens and bus terminals, otherwise taxis are very inexpensive.

We arrived late having had a very stressful flight and our bags did not arrive. It was a very warm welcome at Malabia House which was a joy. The house is a converted convent, with 2 small courtyards, it's light and bright with a blend of contemporary and traditional design. A very comfortable lounge and dining room for breakfast, beautifully set out and a good selection of continental breads , fruit, cerials, coffee. We had a ground floor double/Queen bed,the room is small but adequate. A fridge but no kettle, hanging space and shelves . You can get a coffee at any time but that's an extra charge. My only complaint would be about the ensuite, old and mouldy,and far too small, which is a pity as the basin is a beautiful Moreno glass, or look alike !

Malabia House is very secure, 24 hour reception and only entered by ringing the front door bell. The staff are all young and extremely helpful, Guillermino went out of her way to locate our bags which thankfully arrived the following afternoon. An enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: It seems to be very quiet in any part of the hotel, no lift so if you are on the first floor there are a few stairs to climb

We stayed one night in Malabia house and enjoyed it very much. The stuff was very friendly and helpfull, the room was cosy, well decorated and quiet during the night, which was very important for us. The breakfast was great with a big choise. We can recommand the hotel very much. Palermo is a great place to stay in Buenos Aires and if we come back we will choose Malabia House again.
