We stayed in a junior suite, room 7, on the first floor. It faced an inner courtyard so we didn't get any noise from the streets but the air-conditioners in the room were noisy though we managed to sleep through it. The air-conditioners were adjustable so you can switch them off but we had them on as the weather was warm and humid during our stay. The junior suite was spacious - a small kitchen, livingroom, dining area, quite a large bathroom and bedroom. This junior suite was somewhat dark even with all the lights switched on, but it wasn't an issue for us as we didn't plan to stay indoors for hours on end. I liked the bed as it had a firm mattress and it was large (super king). There was a TV in the livingroom as well as a small TV in the bedroom. It was a bit difficult to adjust the water in the shower to something that was not scalding, but you just have to be patient and take care. The area outside the hotel seemed safe - in fact, we walked around the centre and never felt like it was dodgy or dangerous. From the hotel, you can easily stroll the tree-lined streets to all the parks in the centre (Plaza Espana, Plaza Independencia, etc). We found that the distance between the hotel and Av. Villanueva Aristides (the main street for good restaurants and bars) was too far on foot, especially after enjoying too much steak and wine which is easy to do in Mendoza. Not a major problem as the taxis were cheap. Staff at the hotel were friendly, helpful and responsive - eg. they promptly reset their router when we informed them that we couldn't get a wi-fi connection in our room on two occasions (thereby resolved the issue), when we enquired they kindly checked in on our behalf for our flights and printed out our e-tickets. The pool area on the rooftop is more basic than depicted in photos on websites such as booking.com, but it was still lovely to go for a dip on a hot day and also especially in the afternoon when most shops close for siesta c. 1-4pm. The water in the small pool was warm so you could soak in it for a long time which is relaxing. The only major 'con' was breakfast. The selection was not particularly delectable - processed juice (though the coffee was not bad), a few fruits, some biscuits, the bread seemed old and tasted as much.
