1555 Malabia House Review

Behind the unassuming white facade of this 100-year-old Palermo Soho town house and former convent is what the proprietors have dubbed Argentina's "first designer B&B." Common areas have bold, colorful paintings and fanciful sculptures. Rooms, only some of which have en suite baths, are all about pale-wood floors and furnishings and simple white bedding and curtains. Both sides of the narrow hallways are lined with rooms, eliminating any sense of privacy, but the bustling Palermo location is hard to beat. The young staff can steer you toward the neighborhood's newest restaurants and nightspots.
