816 is a really good bed and breakfast to stay at one of the owners George is a very gracious host who makes great recommendation for places to eat at. It's located near the center of Mendoza, easy to get to from the airport.

Host Jorge and wife Gladys are delightful and very helpful. Great location for good restaurants and easy access to the centre of Mendoza. Room had good aircon and a superb bathroom. Great breakfast with home made preserves. Jorge loves tea and is happy to share his collection if you show an interest. Lovely modern house that Jorge built himself.

Room Tip: Only three rooms. All seemed good. No 1 probably biggest.

This bed and breakfast is run from a lovely house in a great location - a few minutes walk from local restaurants and about 15 minutes walk from the central square. There are three rooms upstairs, while owners Jorge and Gladys live downstairs.

Rooms: our room (number 1) was huge, with a comfy double bed, wooden floors, TV, and a large window that opened up wide onto the courtyard. Trailing plants hung down over it, providing welcome shade. The bathroom was also huge. There was a jacuzzi bath, but we never used it - who needs bubbles when you can see the Andean foothills from your shower stall?

Breakfast: Delicious and generous. Breads, toast, croissants, ham, cheeses, sweet spreads, cornflakes and sweet, freshly squeezed orange juice. I challenge anyone to leave the table hungry!

Service: It was Jorge and Gladys who really make 816 unique. They helped us in many ways - lending us a plug adapter, printing out our bus tickets, orientation. And they will pounce on and solve even the most minor problems with alacrity. It's like having the service of a 5* hotel (though, frankly, better) in a B&B. Amazing.

Value: Not cheap but compared to other accommodation in Mendoza it's good value.

Lovely little B&B in downtown Mendoza. The location is great-- very central and close to restaurants and bars but on a quiet street so you don't have to deal with any noise. Our room and bathroom were very spacious and clean. Breakfast was tasty and the owners were friendly and very willing to help.

Well kept property, spacious rooms, luxury all with air conditioning.
Friendly owners, but poor in English. He tried to help us in every way, which was nice in the beginning but we felt it was too much. We could not leave the B&B without telling him our plans. He tried to get involved in everything, and unfortunately when I asked him to organise something it didn't work out. I think he forgot to organise our climbing trip.
I need to warn future travellers as he tries to rip you of in a friendly way. On our account he added laundry service which we didn't use. What was worse was the he has a special exchange rate for tourists when you like to pay in pesos. He prefers america dollars. But if you want to pay in pesos, he converts US dollars to pesos via a tourist deal which is good for him but not for you.

My wife and I came to Jorge and Gladis' B&B in Mendoza last September and were very warmly welcomed. Our hosts spent an hour with us providing us with the best restaurants & things to do in Mendoza. They even organised our car rental. The room was very nice. Very comfortable bed and clean bathroom. I highly recommend this place to stay in Mendoza. And thanks Gladis & Jorge for this wonderful stay!

Having visited Mendoza City in January 2013 and again in December 2013, and having stayed at two other enjoyable places (B&B Plaza Italia and Hotel Argentino), 816 B&B is our favorite place to stay! We really like 816 B&B because:
a) it is a charming newer home (with air conditioning), built by the owner, a civil engineer,
b) the owners, Jorge and Gladis are onsite, friendly and helpful,
c) it is in a quiet residential neighborhood (our bedroom overlooked the courtyard) within easy walking distance to everything, and
d) the breakfast was excellent, overflowing with tasty options.

Regretfully, we were only able to stay with Jorge and Gladis for one night, as we were on our
way to the Potrerillos, Las Carditas and El Salto area. When we return to Mendoza City, 816 B&B will be our first choice to stay.
