Just book yourself in. Do it! In no particular order, these are the reasons I loved my stay: the host family are wonderful people. Javier is lovely, has a woonderful dry sense of humour and knows a lot about the city, where to eat, the wineries, history, etc. His divine mum, Mercedes and her partner Tito, are equally lovely people and live in the house. We got an extensive induction from Javier and felt like we were locals afterwards. The house itself is stunning and the rooms comfortable, great beds and beautifully, stylishly decorated (both rooms and common areas). Plus its in a great central location and right on a lovely park in a very leafy street. Breakfast is like a mini buffet and wonderful with quality food. We also did the wine tour Javier offers and had the best day. We saw 4 very different wineries and learnt different parts of the process at each. Lunch at one winery was incredible.
It's an absolute highlight of my 9 month travels through Central and South America and one I won't forget. I wouldn't stay anywhere but here for a wonderful and personal real Argentinian experience.

B&B Plaza Italia is a beautiful place to stay and is located in the center of Mendoza. Mercedes is the charming , lovely landlady, who recommended good restaurants and places to go to. Her son Janvier has a very good knowleged about wineries and gave us excellent advise . All in all a place worthwhile coming back to.

This B&B was by far the best. Mercedes and her family were amazing hosts. Not only was the welcome helpful and friendly, there is not a single fault in this place.

The wine tour run by Javier was a great trip with lots of laughs, wine and food. Great value for money.

Will definitely be returning to stay again.

B&B Plaza Italia is a family run establishment, and they make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Upon arrival, they provided us with a map and marked several recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Our room was quite spacious, and was nicely cleaned each day while we were out. There was a nice selection for breakfast each morning as well as fresh juice, coffee and tea. We were able to get our fill before heading out on our excursions each day. It was also nice to talk to the other guests at breakfast and share recommendations for things to do/see while in Mendoza/Argentina.

The location of B&B Plaza Italia was great-- within walking distance to many restaurants, parks, and shops. We walked everywhere while we were there.

Javier planned a wine tour for us during our stay. He picked us up from the B&B in the morning and took us to some of his favorite places. We visited four different bodegas, all of which were fabulous. We had an amazing lunch at Ruca Malen, including wine pairings for each course. Overall it was a relaxing and fun day, and we even bought some wine to take back to the states with us. We had such a great time that we wished we had time for a second day of wine touring with Javier.

Mercedes, the owner of the B&B, was very kind and helpful. She helped us locate a store to buy a box for our wine. She was even nice enough to help us box it all up and label it! She made some recommendations for dinner, and called to make reservations for us.

Mercedes, and her son, Javier, were so welcoming that we now feel like we have friends in Mendoza. We will definitely stay with them again if we ever make it back to Mendoza!

This beautiful house turned into a B & B retains the warmth of a home with its tasteful living room, dining room and outdoor patio. Mercedes, the owner, her staff, and her son Javier warmly welcomed us and they immersed us into life in Mendoza with their many helpful suggestions for places to visit and restaurants to enjoy. The added bonus was going with Javier on the best wine tour we've ever had. We strongly recommend that even if the B & B is fully booked for the days you plan to stay in Mendoza, reserving a wine tour with Javier is an absolute must. His knowledge of the area, relations with the wineries, and selection of vineyards for his tours all combined to make our stay in Mendoza perfect.

Unfortunately, we could not stay at the B&B because it was already booked for most of our visit 5 months in advance. We did meet Mercedes and spent some time in the drawing room and noted the excellent location and condition of the property. Javier Inzaurraga, the owner's son, conducted a 5 day wine tour for my wife and I, which was beyond superlative. He was prompt, courteous, and drove us around safely in a car which was clean and comfortable. We saw over 20 wineries, from garagistas (small) to Mondavi-style corporations with immaculate facilities. I felt that we got an in depth view of what Mendoza offers. At each facility he (and we) were warmly greeted. He had put a lot of thought into the itinerary, which was quite efficiently done. The best steaks I have ever eaten were at Lagarde, Ruca Malen, and Tupungato Divino . (Sorry, Three Forks, Ruth's Chris, and Pappas Steak House.) Whether you have a day or a week, Javier will exceed your expectations.
