This completely and tastefully ambiented studio complex was the best idea we could have had for our one week stay in Mendoza.
The location is perfect, just a few steps away from the main street of downtown Mendoza, as well as surrounded on very short walking distance from many cafes, all kinds of shops, restaurants, and small local businesses that made our stay feel like home.
Failry sized studios, with lots of natural light (Mendoza is allways sunny) and well ventilated, were completely furnished with everything we could think of.
Wireless internet worked perfect, the staff was really excellent and made our stay even more enjoyable.
We fell in love with Mendoza and sure will be back soon, as we are living in Santiago de Chile right now and this is at very short distance (only 380km) and a beatifull 6 hour bus trip over the amazing Andes, away,
Modern contemporary architecture, lots of natural light and fresh air in the well decorated rooms, a unique art gallery (at the same time front desk) at the top floor with terraces were we sat in the lovely Mendoza sunshine.
The staff really outstanding.
The way to live "local" Our home away from home
For customers looking for flexibility and who want to tailor make their own holiday, we have a great value self-catering apartments available to book online. We work with a number of propertie's owners, meaning we are able to offer you the widest choice at the best prices.
All apartments have bedding, a living room space, bathroom, kitchen and fridge, a TV and telephone. Some units do have ovens but most do not. Apartments in Las Lenas are very basic and do not have the same standards as North American resorts. They do provide skiers with all the basic necessities. Each apartment is different and has 4 to 7 beds depending on the unit. It is important to let you know that in some units a bed can be a couch or a skimpy mattress that pulls out underneath a couch.
They are located at the base of the resort, at a small distance further up the hill from the base
This looks like a nice home, staff makes you feel at home, and it is indeed a home. I am writing now in the living room, very cutely decorated, dim lights, extremely quiet, with wi-fi with some other guests drinking malbec wine. It has a nice pool in a big garden...breakfast is a bit short, but all in all it is superb and a great deal (around 30€ double)
Parece una casa, te hacen sentir en casa, es, en realidad, una casa, un hogar. Escribo ahora desde el salón, con una decoración sencilla y con mucho gusto, la iluminación perfecta, compartiendo un malbec con otros huespedes. Tiene una linda piscina en un gran jardin...el desayuno, algo escaso, pero en resumidas cuentas es fantástico y a muy buen precio (unos 30€ la doble)

Warning!! To the people thinking of staying at that hostel which is only one of two possibilities for accomodations at Puente del Inca, this place even though I did not stay in it, looks awful! It is in such rough shape - basically crumbling - and with it's walls and roof made of tin, it looks more like an abandoned storage building (forget the old charming railway station) or even better yet, like something out of a "villa" (slum). There is an outhouse outside and hopefully, this is not their only toilet... also, I was told by 2 backpackers staying there that there is no heat in the rooms (although there are heaters in the halls). Brrrrrr.... Puente del Inca can get very cold at night, especially during the fall and winter. Sounds like it's the perfect place to freeze your butt off, which kind of sucks after a long day in the outdoors. Also, night life is probably very limited in Puente del Inca. There is only one cafe and one restaurant. My advice stay at Hosteria Puente del Inca instead or Hostel Uspallata.
Wow!! We found a little jewel when we walked into this place last week! Located about 10 km outside of the town of Uspallata (on Ruta Internacional Nº 7), this hostel makes a great base for visiting the area including Puente del Inca/ Aconcagua park and also for setting off on hikes in the Uspallata valley and mountains. The owners are incredibly nice people and the hostel has a pleasant, laid-back atmosphere. The main rooms are decorated with taste, with the main room/lounge feeling like a cosy cafe and the dining room/kitchen at the back looking like that of a mountain lodge with its massive stone chimney. It also has the cleanest toilets I've seen in Argentina so far!! There is also a ping pong table for entertainment!! We were there in the laste fall (and the only visitors that night) but this place looks like it's probably very lively in the summer and a good spot to meet friendly people.
The downsides of this place are the breakfast which costs an extra 4 $ARG and the fact that the building was not heated (at least when we stayed), although they did put a portable heater in our room which did the trick. It is also out of town which is not very convenient, although there is an "almacen" (mini grocery store) about 400 m away where everything to make a lunch can be bought.
For outdoor activities in the area: We had planned to do some hiking in the area the next day but didn't know where to go. The owner drew us a map of a trail that starts behind the hostel and runs 20-25 km through the backcountry, connecting with the town of Uspallata and the bus station at the end. The semi-arid and mountainous landscape is fantastic and looks like it's just out of a western. I think this is one of the nicest hikes a did in my life and highly recommend it! Just ask the hostel owner for the directions.
This lovely fully furnished house with 2 bedroom, T&B, kicthen, living room, dining room, garage, quincho (BBQ area) and with a small pool is available for tourists who want to spend soem days or weeks in San Rafael...
It is more convenient, financially, for tourists these days to rent a house specially for big groups than to go to a hotel...you will have more privacy and more space...
OK. There are several different places with the name Ayelen in Penitentes, the one we stayed at was HOTEL Ayelen. It's supposed to be a 3 star hotel, but our room left a lot to wish for. Maybe it is because they gave us a cheap rate over the phone, and then when I insisted we´d get the same rate when we got there, they gave us a bad room (I really don't think all the rooms where that bad). Also, I e-mailed, called ahead of time, etc, but they still did not have our confirmaton ready when I got there. Hm....so, not a great place at all. However, we where there to ski, and not spend time in the hotel.
I don't remember exactly what it costs, but you don't exactly get what you pay for. You'd probably have a better time staying in the local hostel.
I think the person that was the most uncomfortabel was my little nephew...his crib was awful and the child seats in the restaurants almost fell apart when you touched them.
I think what saved our stay were a couple (i.e. not a majority) of the personal who where somewhat service minded.
On the upside, there was a restaurant, a small shop, a ping pong table, and a bar in the hotel, so once you got back after a full day of skiing, you had plenty of common areas to hang out in.
Ok. So I did not actually stay at this particular hostel, but I have stayed at plenty of HI's in Argentina, and they usually are really nice. The location of this one is great, as it is sometimes hard to find cheap accommondations next to ski resorts.
(The price for a dorm is between 20-22pesos - about $US7 a night - , depending on the season).
Since I went with my sister, brother-in-law, and their baby, I stayed at a pretty nice place this time (when traveling with a baby, you need more comfort).
This place is nice and clean, but really nothing special. The location is creat though, and it is good for quick stays in the city of Mendoza (they where also very accomondating regarding things for the baby).
Right next to the downtown plaza.

The Urbana Suites is a modern but unobstrusive looking hotel located in the downtown area of Mendoza, with lots of large shade trees just like everywhere else in the city. It has a very modern and clean reception and breakfast area close to the glass entrance door, which is remote lock-controlled by the receptionist.
Our room, which consisted of a bedroom/kitchen area with refrigerator, sink and stove as well as a separate bathroom was also modern and clean. The European custom is in use, with the floor above ground level being the 1st floor and the key had an attached plug that had to be fitted into a slot to turn on the electricity (a bit of a nuisance because it set the digital clock flashing every time we left the room!). They served up the best breakfasts that we had on the whole two week trip! I would highly recommend this hotel (depending on what it costs - see below!).
Because this hotel was booked for us by Ripio Turismo agency as part of our package deal, we ended up not paying a thing for our four night stay. Consequently, I do not even have a telephone number or other contact information for the hotel. I do not even know how much the room rate is!
I was a lot of times in this hotel. Is well located at downtown the city of Mendoza, the building is not new but the services are good.
Includes a Restaurant, (I hope still there) named Sancho Panza where I had one of my best experiences like a gourmandise.
Downtown city, full services.
Standard hotel room with tv (with lots of channels), private bath decent size bath. A couple of things i didn't like was that the towels had an usual smell. Another was that quite often there was noone at the reception so it was very easy to grab any room key.
This new 4-star hotel is theorically the best hotel in town. I stayed there for a night and was pleased with the service, comfortable rooms and a decent breakfast. Nothing really special to talk about but more than enough for one night stay before taking the plane back home.
It has a nice pool, spa and gym.
This neat hotel is just a 5' walk across the street from the airport. It is a nice place with confortable rooms and good breakfast at affordable prices. It is ideal to stay after your full last day skiing at Las Leñas and before you take next morning flight to Buenos Aires. Dowtown San Rafael is only 6 kms. down the road but you won't miss too if you don't feel like visiting it.
