“Not recommended!”
Reviewed December 3, 2006

We stayed in the Gran Hotel Mendoza in November this year.
It was difficult to find hotels in Mendoza so we opted for the Gran Hotel Mendoza. We pre-booked the hotel but when we arrived they were disorganised & didn't seem to know we had booked a room. The room was small & smelt very strongly of smoke. We asked to change rooms but were informed that there were no other rooms available. The airconditioning was not working & it took two requests for them to fix it. The safety deposit box also kept jamming so we were unable to use this. The hotel staff were generally unhelpful & seemed irritated by our requests.
The breakfast however was ok & the staff in the breakfast room were pleasant. The hotel was inexpensive but after our experiences there i would not recommend it.

In November my friend and I headed to Mendoza City to begin our tour of our favorite wineries. There was little information on hotels in Mendoza so we gambled with the Gran Hotel Mendoza. The room was small and we had issues with our shower overflowing onto the bathroom floor. The hot tubs on the top floor have great views of the Andes Mountains and were perfect for relaxing after a day of touring wineries. The fitness center could have been updated but we weren't there for exercise and didn't care too much. The hotel was helpful with getting taxis but they spoke little English and would sometimes appear irritated at our questions in broken Spanish. The free breakfast was adequate. It was a good safe inexpensive place to rest our heads after a day of wine tasting.

There were very few reviews for hotels in Mendoza, so we took a chance and booked the Gran Hotel...and don{t have any regrets.

The reception staff were very friendly and efficient - there is generally at least one person who will speak English, if your Spanish is not up to much.

The rooms are a good size, clean and with the standard mod cons...nothing special and perhaps a bit souless (but only in the way that a lot of city hotels are).

Location is excellent, with shops and restaurants all close by - there is also a roof top restaurant, which serves a very good selection of food and wine + a small gym and jacuzzi area.

While we were there we struggled to find a wine tour which suited our needs and eventually asked the hotel reception for any recommendations. The hotel referred us to a local guide Rod, who has spent the last few years working in London and has returned to Mendoza to set up a tour business, that offers amore tailored service to tourists.
Rod will offer a brochure of options, but also talk through exactly what you want to get out of your trip.
We chose to visit two vineyards for a tasting and then lunch at the Bodega Zucardi (most amazing meal with three types of wine and for only ten pounds per person...we have never eaten better)!
This is one of the best experiences we have had in Argentina. Rod is so passionate about Mendoza. He drove us around himself and after the vineyard trips he introduced us to the local sights within Mendoza itself...could not recommend him enough (and by the way, he is more expensive than the bog standard tour, but not at all outrageous, even to two budget travellers).
Ask for his contact details at the hotel.
