One of the hotel's two passenger elevators broke down on 1 Jan 2012, our day of arrival.
When we checked out the next day, it was - perhaps understandably, given the time of year - still not working. The air-conditioner in our room struggled to keep us cool, seemingly defeated by the outside temperature of 34°C. The remote control for the cathode ray tube TV was not working so we used the manual controls on the TV set.
Apart from these inconveniences, the rest of our stay was pleasant and uneventful.
Staff are friendly and helpful; free WiFi is available in the lobby; the buffet breakfast is sufficiently varied and palatable.
Our room is clean and a comfortable size for two occupants. The free WiFi signal strength is erratic at best in the room. The TV with cable access sits on a table and a large window fills one wall. The en suite bathroom has a hairdrier, toilet, bidet, bathtub with shower and single washbasin. Amenities comprise soap bars, shampoo and hair conditioner. Bath linens are clean and of generous size.
A host of shops, restaurants and other hotels are within walking distance from NH Cordillera. Two blocks away is Plaza Independenzia and the luxurious Park Hyatt Mendoza.More
