I loved everything!!! It was a pleasure staying there and I hope to return one day.
Mariano, the owner is the most welcoming and friendly host you can imagine and the place is filled with warmth and welcome. Mariano wrote to me in advance to ask about my arrival time and provided information about how to get to Hotel Mallorca and what to do in Mendoza. As soon as I arrived, he guided me through the hotel, invited me for a cup of coffee and told me a lot about the area and the city and also provided me a lot of tips about visiting the city (wineries, mountains) taking into consideration the length of my stay and my budget as well. He helped me to download a very useful application to my phone which works also offline and it helped me a lot in navigation within the city. During my stay he was always on hand and he tried to do his best to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Mariano is a mine of information, he is soo lovely and extremely helpful, you can turn to him in case of any questions and you can be sure that he will provide you great suggestions!
I am travelling a lot and I can confirm that it is very rare even in small hotels that you get this level of attention and care.
The location is great, only a few minutes from a beautiful, large park (Parque General San Martin), three blocks from Aristides (lot of great restaurants) and six blocks from Belgrano (tram station). The area is very nice and safe, I felt myself completely safe walking alone around midnight from the city center.
The building is very old but beautiful and has an incredible charm. The outdoor patio and the terrace is amazing, I felt in love with the autumn colours and it was so nice to relax here after a busy day and enjoy the peace and quiet or chat with Mariano or with the other guests. The rooms are basic, all you need for a good night of sleep after sightseeing or visiting wineries.
The room was always kept spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable and bathroom always had hot water.
