Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location, within walking distance of shops and restaurants
  • Freebies include breakfast, evening reception, and Wi-Fi
  • Quaint, intimate feel with a small courtyard garden
  • All rooms have flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges
  • 24-hour concierge and 24-hour room service
  • Room decor is simple but attractive

Cons

  • Several rooms have detached bathrooms (though still private)
  • Twin beds are especially narrow
  • Thin walls mean guests can hear others' comings and goings
  • Fitness center is 2 blocks away and requires an additional fee

Bottom Line

The Malabia House Hotel is housed in a quaint 18th-century building situated on a tree-lined, cobblestone street in Palermo Soho, an upscale shopping and dining-focused neighborhood. The bed and breakfast (rates include free breakfast and a free evening reception) has only 15 rooms and an intimate, romantic feel; rooms are simple but cozy; the small inner courtyard brings in a lot of natural light; and the 24-hour concierge is helpful for night owls. But four rooms miss out on the more romantic vibe by having down-the-hall (albeit private) bathrooms, and thin walls means guests can often hear the comings and goings of others.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the upscale Palermo Soho neighborhood

Malabia House sits on a bright, tree-lined street with cobblestone sidewalks in Palermo Soho. The historic hotel is within walking distance of numerous restaurants and shops (some just across the street and next door).

On Palermo Viejo's southwest edge, lively Palermo Soho is a small neighborhood that's similar to New York City's SoHo with cobblestone streets and tons of upscale boutiques. Most of the shops and restaurants are centered around Plazoleta Cortazar, which is a late-night gathering spot for those coming and going from the bars.

  • 37-minute drive to the Ezeiza International Airport
  • 1 to 10-minute walk to numerous restaurants, bars, and shops
  • 5-minute walk to Plazoleta Cortazar
  • 5-minute drive to the Carlos Thays botanical gardens
  • 6-minute drive to the zoo
  • 7-minute drive to the Evita Museum, a museum dedicated to Eva Peron's life
  • 10-minute drive to the Museum of Fine Arts Eduardo Sivori
  • 10-minute drive to MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires)
