“Quite good but stinky bathroom”
Reviewed February 10, 2009

This hotel is not bad, though in my opinion does not deserve its current high rating.

Rooms are nice and large with comfortable beds, and ours had a nice outlook onto the street. Air con was effective, and the decor is quite nice and modern. Wifi internet was very frustrating as the signal did not reach into our room. They had ethernet in the room, but the cable they provided was broken and I had to get my own. The kitchen was very basic, and literally no cooking utensils and only one pot were provided, which made it useless apart from boiling the kettle as far as we could tell. By far the worst part of the room, however, was the bathroom. A terrible smell filled the bathroom (sewerage coming up the pipes) which almost made me and my partner gag whenever we went in it. The housekeeping also never provided more than half a roll of toilet paper every day, and we had to have extra sent up twice.

The pool at the hotel looked stagnant and not in a nice setting. The breakfast was simple but good, with meats and cheeses and fresh juice. The coffee was also quite good.

Service at the hotel was mixed. Some staff were very helpful, while others were not comfortable speaking English and thus were always trying to finish the conversation quickly.

The location is good - only about a 10 minute walk to the main plaza in the centre of town, and with lots of restaurants nearby. While you're in town, don't miss eating a fantastic steak at La Barra, a short walk away, and feast of fusion food at Azafran.

We weren't really unhappy with this hotel, just not very happy with it either. It's just mediocre.

Great hotel! We stayed there from May 5 - 7, 2008. The location is great and is within walking distance of the city center and some wonderful restaurants. We highly recommend La Sal on Belgrano. One of the BEST restaurants on our trip.
Our room was super large iwth a kitchen, 2 sinks in the bathroom, well decorated and first class all the way, especially considering the price.
The front desk staff was very accommodating and very helpful in booking reservations, suggesting places to shop, bodegas to visit, etc. Breakfast was good, too.

Hotel also had an indoor parking garage which was helpful since we rented a car at the airport.

  • Liked — Very nice ,large, clean rooms. Great location. Friendly and accommodating staff. Indoor parking.
  • Disliked — The pillows

I have stayed at the Condor Suites on several occasions over the last three years and have found it to be consistently good. The suites are large, very comfortable, well air conditioned and immaculate. There is a small bar and restaurant in the lobby and free internet access.

Best of all it is within walking distance of 'La Barra" the ultimate Argentine barbeque restaurant.

Stayed June 2007

Iwas referred to this hotel by the Hotel Argentino (as they were full up). We arrived in Mendoza at 9am, with a problem on our hands, and even though check-in was not till 3pm, the receptionist (Maria) went about helping us by getting us the appropriate phone numbers and dialing them for us. We have spent two nights here and found the place clean, staff very friendly and willing to please. If there is a problem in the room, they will get it fixed as soon as possible. The room was adequate it had a bedroom and a separate kitchenette with table area and futon for one (maybe 2 small kids). The bathroom had a glass separator for the shower area, which was a little inconvenient to get around; the shower worked better when it was handheld (water was warmer). Wireless internet was weak in my room, but good reception downstairs, able to use the breakfast table. I believe that they were working on this. They have one computer for guest use, which seemed to be constantly in use.
Breakfast was delicious. There is a supermarket (Carrefour) less than 2 blocks away, and it is a nice, very short walk to/from the downtown area, the entrance to Cerro de la Gloria. The area is quiet without a lot of bustling traffic, which one would get one block over and one block down. At Arg$280 a night (including parking), I feel that this is adequate. You maybe able to get a discount if you do not have a car. It's website is rather weak and but it does give you enough information. I would highly recommend it. Also, there are a lot of foreigners staying here, not only neighbouring Chileans, but Germans, and other English speaking tourists.
