“It felt like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2009

My wife and I stayed five nights at this friendly and comfortable B&B. We had an ensuite room. Some rooms have bathrooms across the hall. The owners were extremely helpful with suggestions and planning for activities. The wine tour with Javier is not to missed! The location across from Plaza Italia was quiet and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Breakfast was plentiful, delicious, and cheerfully served. We were treated like family and hope to return.

We stayed here two nights while in Mendoza. The B & B Plaza italia is situated adjacent to a central park in the city. The whole city ("town") of Mendoza is very walkable, and it's easy to get from B&B to the main street with restaurants.

The rooms were clean and made every day. The main street outside the B&B can get a bit noisy during the day, but we weren't home very much so it didn't matter..and plus we stayed on the lower level..It might not matter on the second floor. At night it was restful.

The breakfast in the charming dining room was a nice...most B & B's have a standard menu of cheese, fruit, croissants ('medialunas'), coffee, fresh juice, yogurt, etc... and B & B has the customary fare (which is delicious btw).

We took a wine tasting tour with Javier, who took us in his car. We went to both some of the well-known wineries as well as the lesser known family owned bodegas. I found it to be very enjoyable and personable. Javier has a good knowledge of the local wine scene and has contacts with many of the wineries.

Javier's mother was very helpful at the B & B showing us where the vegetarian restaurants in town were (wife is vegetarian) and her favorite dining spots. She drew out exact routes on a map to guide us and even offered to give us a lift when she was on her way out. Javier also helped organize a paragliding excursion for us.

We wanted to change pace, and live on a posada in Maipu (to get away from the semi-urban character of Mendoza, and see another locale)..well, Javier helped arrange a taxi for us, and made sure to explain exactly how to get there, and spoke with our host in Maipu to coordinate our arrival.

Overall, it is a charming place to stay, with a personal touch. The added bonus of a wine tour with Javier was fantastic.

Just back from a 1 week stay in Mendoza, and highly recommend B&B Plaza Italia. Central location, and easy to get around city on foot or bike from here. Staff are very friendly and helpful, with special kudos to 'International Solutions Provider' Javier. Wine tour was a highlight!

A great find. On one of the five plazas in Mendoza's very pleasant downtown, this bed and breakfast actually feels like a small hotel at times. Very tasteful decoration, and soothing color palette. . .not frou-frou at all. Mercedes, who owns the place with her husband Tito, could not have been more accommodating. She sat down with me when I arrived, and reviewed a map of Mendoza--even making restaurant recommendations, and reviewing neighborhoods that might be of interest.

My room was huge, and for $68, represented a noteworthy value. The place was spotless and quiet. The bathroom looks as if it was just renovated, and featured granite countertops.

Breakfasts are very nice, and they even brewed pots of decaf for me to make a morning cafe con leche (I brought the ground coffee from home)--ham and cheese, croissants, various fruits, cereals, etc.

All of Mendoza is close at hand right outside the door. Mendoza is laid out around five plazas--Plaza Italia is the square across the street--and the very center of town, Plaza Independencia, is quite nearby.

A great choice, and a superlative value.

Beautiful home, immaculate room and ensuite, large wardrobe, computer access, short walk to good restaurants, lovely hosts and good breakfasts (though eggs would be a welcome addition). Javier's wine tour was excellent.

We loved this comfortable and friendly B&B. Everyone who works there is friendly and eager to help you have a great time in Mendoza. Wine tours, Andes tours, city tours, walking tours, restaurant suggestions, etc. They will book these or get you pointed in the right direction. Great location, great breakfasts, fun people, and the perfect place to stay!

I first saw mention of this B&B on TA about a year ago. I made contact with them and Javier answered me back promptly, answering all of my many questions and concerns---he has excellent english as does everyone at the B&B. His answers convinced me that I wanted to visit Mendoza rather than Salta--it was not the content but rather the way he answered. I needed to stay at this B&B--not at the hyatt or the sheraton which I would more normally stay at.
We had room #1 with a king bed and en-suite bathroom. There is also a day bed in this room. The bath is small but perfectly adequate. Everything is spotless and kept that way. They have a small staff but they all seem to work together for the advantage of the guests.
The public rooms are well furnished and comfortable and there is an enclosed patio which is quite pleasant on nice days. Our bed was very comfortable. It can also be made into two twins if needed.

From the time we arrived we knew that this was the right place. Tito, the man of the house, greeted us and made us familiar with how things are run there and answered all of our questions. They offered us several tours and a wealth of info about restaurants, laundries, and any other thing you might need to know.
The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and included warm toast, pastries, jams, juices, cereals, ham, cheese and practically anything you need except warm eggs or other warm items. They were very generous with portions as well and refilled plates as needed.
The lady of the house was charming, and also very welcoming and helpful. Her assistant is also a gem and very very helpful as well.

Javier, the son, who is the manager of every function at the B&B--just ask him, but lives elsewhere with his family, is a very pleasant young man (30's). Other than assisting at the B&B as needed, his primary occupation is conducting wine tours in the region. we were fortunate enough to engage him for a 1/2 day special tour---usually he does full day tours. We visited two wineries of his choosing and they satisfied our need perfectly, including a delicious luncheon paired with wines. He is a very friendly guy, knowledgeable about wine and the area and also about Mendoza. His car is new and very comfortable for touring. His English is perfect. He has a sharp whit as well.

I would rate our stay at 100% and value for money.
