B&B Plaza Italia
Ranked #2 of 94 Mendoza B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 29, 2007

This B&B was fantastic. The couple who own it were both very friendly and helpful. The room we had was big, comfortable and decorated very well. Javier, their son, took us on the wine tour others have mentionned, we had a fantastic day, tried lots of wines and had a delicious lunch, highly recommended. He also went out of his way to be helpful in other ways - taking us to the bus station when we left, dropping us off somewhere we could have a nice walk, talking to us about recommended restaurants etc..

We also enjoyed the company of the other guests at breakfast time (which was, by the way, very nice) and even went for dinner with one other couple.

There is a lovely courtyard on which we played cards and shared a bottle of local red wine before dinner each night!

I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone going to Mendoza.

Good location, decent accomodations, but there are much nicer small hotels for the same price within a block or two (The Lonely Planet's coverage of Mendoza hotels is out-dated). The man who runs it was very helpful but his wife was unpleasant. In such a tiny B&B, that makes a big difference. We would've had a better time staying somewhere else.

We agree with everything that has already been said about Plaza Italia B&B. We found the B&B on an internet search, but hadn't read any of these reviews before going. We arrived reasonably late in the evening, but despite that were met with a warm welcome, and a list of recommendations of places to go for dinner.

The couple who own the B&B live on-site, and their son, Javier, who is gradually taking over the day-to-day running lives nearby with his wife and new-born daughter. This combination is perfect. The couple are ever-present and attentive, whilst being totally unobtrusive, and Javier is just an incredible host/guide who seems to specialise in solving everyone's problems and queries with fantastic efficiency! He took us on a private wine-tour of some of the boutique vineyards of the region, including a superb 5 course meal in one of the vineyards. We have been on some winetours in other parts of the world, and this one definitely beats them all hands down!

All in all, this is a fantastic place to stay, great location, lovely hosts, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Mendoza.

We could not have found a better place to stay in Mendoza. Great location, great accomodations and wonderful hosts. The couple that lives and runs the B&B was always there when you needed them but most importantly--not intrusive. In addition, Javier was a wonderful guide and a great resource for things to see and in the region.

We picked this based on internet reviews, which is always iffy, but we weren't disappointed. The location is perfect for walking around the center of town, and the family who runs this are perfect hosts. Javier, who took on a private wine tour, is very knowledgable about the wines and wineries of Mendoza. He also arranged a great driver for us to go up to see the Andes instead of having to take the big bus tour. This was the way to do it, and we couldn't have set this up ourselves. If you like smaller, more personal places. this is for you!
