Fodor's Expert Review 1555 Malabia House
Malabia 1555, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1414, Argentina
Behind the unassuming white facade of this century-old town house and convent is what the proprietors have dubbed Argentina's "first designer B&B." Common areas have bold, colorful paintings and fanciful sculptures that give it the feel of an art gallery. Done up in creamy shades of white, the smartly decorated rooms all have private, though not necessarily en suite, bathrooms. Both sides of the narrow hallways are lined with rooms, eliminating any sense of privacy, but the bustling Palermo Soho location is hard to beat. A complimentary afternoon picada (Argentine snack tray) is offered daily. The young staff can steer you toward the neighborhood's newest restaurants and nightspots.
