“Charm, comfort and history”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

With another couple, my wife and I stayed at this beautiful hotel in La Cumbre, Cordoba Province in Central Argentina. Our room selection was made using the hotel's web page, and I must confess that pictures coincided with reality. All rooms were large, very confortable, beautifully decorated (including period furniture), spotlessly clean and with fantastic views overlooking not only La Cumbre but also its surroundings. We were greeted by the owners themselves, who let us see and compare different rooms before we selected those we liked most. We selected the Colonial room (huge, with windows enabling a 360 degree view) and our friends the Fritz room. If you are interested in WWII and Argentina's fascinating past, the hotel is a trove of information. Initially built as a medieval caste on top of a hill by a prominent local doctor who had a penchant for ancient history, it was later transformed into a great mansion by Fritz Mandl, a noble German exile, the husband of a famous 1930's movie star and a high ranking Nazi official. Most of Mandl's original site specific furniture, designed by Anna Frank's uncle, is still there. There are beautifully decorated sitting areas, a magnificent dining room, a comfortable library and balconies overlooking the area. The swimming pool, located on the adjoining terraced gardens, allows for a perfect scenic view. We dined at the hotel, and food was an experience in itself. At all times we felt pampered by the courteous owners, who obviously enjoyed all they did to us..

Incredible location, at the top of hill with a magnificent view of the surrounded mountains and the village "La Cumbre". The building consist in an elegant castle with an austrian flavour and lot of history. The present owners welcome every guest and attend every request. Superb service and wonderful chats share with Guillermo and Carlota, so knwoledgeable of the past and characters related to the castle. Impecable restoration maintaining all the original old furniture. Having dinner there is a hole experience tasting the plates delicately prepared. Go there, relax and enjoy the unique moment!

This is definitely THE hotel to stay at in La Cumbre. It is a beautiful construction reminiscent of a castle, built on top of a hill, some 10 blocks from downtown, and overlooks the entire city both from its ample and comfortable rooms, and from its beautiful gardens and swimming pool. The dining room is majestic too, the manager and his family are truly warm and hospitable, and the food they prepare is delicious. We enjoyed our stay enormously and will definitely come back every time we are in the area.

Fabulous chateau hotel overlooking La Cumbre. The rooms have wonderful views and are extremely comfortable. They ar also immaculately clean and well maintained. This is the kind of place I dream of finding in Italy or Switzerland. Moreover, the hosts are lovely and make one feel at home.

Room Tip: Rooms facing out towards the valley are best
