"Our home in Buenos Aires!"
We felt so welcome and comfortable in Malabia House: super nice staff, well appointed rooms in fantastic historical old house in Palermo, and wonderful breakfast in the lovely garden (great crepes with dulce de leche, Maria!). What else we can say, we'll be back for sure when in Buenos Aires, thanks!!!
"Great Location - adequate room"
The location of this hotel is perfect. The room left something to be desired. The double bed was just 2 twins pushed together. Not really comfortable, but not terrible. Because this is a unique botique hotel, the room we were in was most likely not the best of the bunch. The bathroom was the size of a closed and the shower was almost too small to get into. Also, there was no window in the room which was unsettling. I would suggest asking which room you are in.
"Great spot in heart of Palermo!"
Perfect spot to explore Palermo, especially with our front room with the balcony! Breakfast included in the morning with a very kind staff, including delicious homemade crepes with dulce de leche! As a note, bathrooms are separate from the rooms but easy and clean. Made our trip to Buenos Aires feel very special and authentic, as if we were apart of the neighborhood!
The front room was light and roomy. Even with the bathroom down the hall, this was an excellent room. We lingered at breakfast for several hours with another couple without feeling pressured to leave. The staff was attentive and helpful and accommodated all of our requests.
"3/5 or 4/5'"
I spent 4 nights at Malabia - it fits my preference for small boutique hotels that tell me I am in another country - and be safe, clean, comfortable. Bruno and Cecelia were friendly and helpful with arrangements and taxis. The young woman who was on duty for my late arrival and on the morning of my departure was neither helpful nor friendly. The location is very good. Plenty of restaurants to reach on foot, and as a woman alone I felt safe in the neighborhood. Breakfast is nicely presented and I usually took my breakfast into the garden room that was set up at breakfast time - very pleasant space. The only problem I found was with my room. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. But it has no window - only glass in the upper part of the double door entrance which needed to be covered for privacy. So it felt a little claustrophobic. The biggest problem was the bathroom - it was horrid. Extremely tiny with inward opening door to make it even smaller, and unsafe. I am not a large person and I do not know how a bigger person could use the shower. The space was old with mold embedded around the shower and stained peeling walls - in desperate need of an update. It appeared to be as clean as it could be. Yes I paid the lowest price for a room, but should still be able to expect a better bath. On a positive side, because the room was at the back of the ground floor hall, it was very quiet. The bathroom and lack of a window makes it difficult for me to choose between a rating of 3 or 4. I am certain other rooms have better baths, and would still recommend Malabia for location and ambience.
