Reviewed 3 January 2015

We stayed here on the front-end and tail-end of an Aconcagua climb and could not have been happier. It is clean, well-appointed and conveniently located. It was nice having the downtown and supermarket just a few blocks away and the park across the street. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. In fact, the gentleman working the desk at 5am when we checked out went into the kitchen to make us espresso to drink while we waited for our ride to the airport. Very nice.

Bed uncomfortable, street noise made sleeping almost impossible. No hand towel or washcloths so had to keep using the bath towel. Room stank of sewage and when we asked to be relocated we were rebuffed by staff. Low quality breakfast. We left a night early to salvage our trip to Mendoza despite the fact that we were billed for that additional night and checked out early in the morning. All the manager did was make excuses for our concerns and was unwilling to make any amends. All this hotel lacks is a S to classify it as a hostel. If that's the level of experience you seek, you'll be fine, otherwise please book elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you have to stay here, hope for a room high up to get away from the street noise.

This lovely clean, spacious, comfortable suite hotel is perfectly located in Mendoza, overlooking one of the park squares. It's a short walk from most attractions, and the staff were brilliant; well informed, very friendly and welcoming. You can book any tourist trip at the front desk with no problems. Take a bottle of local wine up to the terrace on the roof for a pleasant way to spend an evening.

Room Tip: Front rooms are overlooking the park, but there's a bit of traffic noise during the day; maybe...

Good location across within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and bars. We stayed in a suite and slept comfortably on the beds. Loved the extra pillows and the quiet a/c units. The kitchen part of the suite was not well equipped at all but we ordered some glasses and they brought them to us. The bathroom had powerful water pressure and was adequate. Our room had a lovely balcony that overlooked Plaza Chile. The breakfast was fair but better than no breakfast. The computer in the small business room was painfully slow and inadequate to perform any meaningful tasks. The staff was mostly courteous and well trained.

Room Tip: Get a room that overlooks Plaza Chile.

Stayed here for a week in July '14
Location is great on plaza chile, easy walking distance from shops, restaurants etc.
Good breakfast for Argentina with a selection of pastries, toast, breads, juices, ham & cheese, cereals,tea & coffee.
Friendly, helpful, English speaking staff

Well kept/presented and secure with an evening/night security guard.
Junior suites are spacious enough with a sitting room, dining table, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, with a safe and comfortable dbl bed, but the kitchen was poorly equipped and some minor elements of the room needed work. Nothing that really affected our stay though.

Carrefour around the corner is useful as well.

Would recommend it and stay here again a a good base for experiencing mendoza.
