The hotel was downtown in the tourist area which I really liked. You could walk outside and be immediately thrust into the Mendoza street life. The only real draw back was the desk service.

This hotel is in a good location, about 2 blocks from the center of town and the park. Rooms were ok, but not as up to date as other 3 * I have been in. Price was about $45 per night for 2. Wierd: The A/C is turned on by a phone call to the front desk. (not a problem,... More
