Everything was fine, specially the managing people. The building is really interesting and the charming atmosphere is a special attraction. The hotel is placed in the heart of Palermo and close to restaurants and cafes.
"Beautiful decor, perfect location"
I really really enjoyed my stay here. The location in Palermo is very central and safe- right in the middle of all the trendy restaurants and stores. The setting in the old convent feels really special and is very beautiful!! My room was on the first floor right close to the dining room and common space. I could definitely hear anyone passing by, and as soon as breakfast started I was awake, but I didn't mind at all. Thank you!!
"Good location. Wonderful staff"
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).
"Nice stay "
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.
"A friendly boutique hotel in a fashionable area of Palermo"
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.
