Guesthouses and B&Bs
Raices Aconcagua Mendoza
Four-star Hotel Aconcagua has it all, with manicurists and hairstylists on the premises, a sauna and pool and some multilingual staff. It’s one of the biggest in town, built in 1978 for the football World Cup.
Right on the central plaza, this business-class hotel has some fine features, including large rooms and a decent-sized swimming pool. Pay extra for a balcony overlooking the plaza.
Park Hyatt Mendoza
Facing Plaza Independencia, Mendoza’s only five-star hotel is a real beauty, and walk-in rates can be surprisingly affordable (from the splurge perspective), considering the quality and comfort of the ultrachic rooms.
B&B Plaza Italia
This six-room B&B is hard to beat when it comes to friendliness and delicious breakfasts. The house is lovely, the owners (who speak English) are divine, and the living room is just right for reading. It’s like being at home.
An excellent, central location, friendly welcome and big buffet breakfast make up for the slightly cramped rooms at this clean but ageing hotel.
Hotel Crillon Mendoza
This is a modern, unpretentious place with wood-floored rooms, firm beds, good bathrooms (complete with towel-warmers) and a great swimming pool across the street.
Hotel Rj Del Sol
An excellent location on busy Av Las Heras, ultra-friendly staff and modest rooms make this mid-size hotel great value...
Ritz Hotel Mendoza

Abril Hotel Boutique
A modern hotel with touches of class, the Abril never really lives up to its ‘boutique’ claims, but is a pretty good deal for the price, amenities and location.
Just north of the city center, this hostel maintains an air of intimacy despite its grand proportions. The dorms are regular, but the doubles are extremely good value – spacious, with wide-screen TVs and tastefully decorated bathrooms...
With a great location and friendly, bilingual staff, this is one of the city’s better hostels. Common areas are spacious and the big shady backyard and pool are definite pluses.
A hotel-hostel hybrid, the Confluencia has good rooms with private bathrooms as well as kitchen access, a spacious lounge and a good central location.
Hostel Huellas Andinas
If you plucked a climbers' refuge from the slopes of Cerro Aconcagua, spruced it up a bit and dropped it in the middle of Mendoza, you'd end up with something like this...
A good-looking hostel on the Arístides strip, this doesn’t miss a beat with great common areas, an excellent pool/garden area and functional dorms and doubles. Staff are probably way cooler than you are, and not shy about letting you know it.
Another of the gorgeous hostels in the busy bar district, the Itaka is located in a bright, renovated building and features spacious dorms and reasonable doubles. Call for free pick up from the bus terminal...
Break Point Mendoza
