After looking for some hostels, we stayed in this hotel with a cheaper price. It is located just 3 blocks away from the independence square, the heart of the city. From the bus stop just in front of the hotel you can reach everywhere. Breakfast is classic Argentinian breakfast, it is ok. Most important thing is of course the friendliest... More

What more can you ask for from a hotel that is in the heart of Mendoza except for the best host and hostess. The owners of this small intimate hotel, Oscar and Ema, make you feel like family and are a wealth of knowledge about Mendoza and the surrounding area. Our first night Ema personally walked us down the block... More

I stayed at the Alexander hotel for one night, which was far too long. I was looking for a sofa and desk. That was literally what I received. The hotel and rooms are small, very small, extremely small. The sheets had two big stains on them. YUCK!. There was a bathroom door, that did not lock and you could hear... More

We spend a week here in March 2012. Clean, comfortable bed, good simple breakfast. But what makes this hotel the best value is the personalized friendly service. Want to go to the thermal springs last minute? no problem, it will be arranged. The best ATM? Ema knows. Have some really far out tastes and interests? Ema will help find a... More

We were a group of 12 who stayed 5 nights with Ema and Oscar. The hotel included breakfast, private bathrooms, TV, air-conditioning, and free WI-FI. The location was perfect - across the street was the Central Market where you could go for a low-cost lunch or buy fruit. Carrefour (large supermarket 7 blocks away) had everything you could need like... More

We had a double room for two nights. The bathroom was poorly cleaned and the shower drain was close. Otherwise, the hotel and staff was OK but nothing more than that. We don´t recommend taking the wine tour to the winery’s sold at the hotel. We were told that the guiding would be in English. That was not the case... More

We loved our stay at the Hotel Alexander. After somewhat cool and brusque treatment from hotel staff in Buenos Aires, the owners of the Alexander, Oscar and Ema, surprised us with the genuinely kind reception they gave us. We felt immediately at home. And the price was half of what we had paid in BA. The hotel is in the... More

Dear Emma and Oscar, Our stay in Mendoza was the best part of our trip, thanks to you. All for your suggestions regarding places to go, things to do and see, were so helpful. We can't thank you enough, and are so happy to have met such an accommodating couple. Thanks again, we truly appreciate your help. Sincerely,

We stayed at the Hotel Alexander for only one night but Emma and Oscar were two of the nicest people we have had the pleasure to meet in Argentina. The rooms are also definitely the best to be found in this price range. Breakfast was pretty standard for Argentina, coffee, sweet rolls, etc. The location could not be better -... More
