Reviewed 17 July 2014

The 816 B&B is probably one of the best B&B's we have ever been. It's located in a very quiet and nice area of mendoza. Nevertheless it's within walking distance to the city center (10 min) and the local bar street with lot's of nice bars and restaurants is only 5min away.

The rooms are cosy, clean and big enough, including even a mini bar. Wifi is also available in every room. Breakfast was great and left nothing to be desired!
The hosts were very welcoming and supported us in every possible way.
All in al in was a great stay and we could highly recommend this B&B!

We booked the premier room number one to stay in for our time in Mendoza. The room is huge! And absolutely spotlessly clean. Nice, tasteful decorations and comfortable bed. We loved the minibar with reasonable prices in our room, handy for those times you need a bottle of water in the middle of the night. We loved the room so much that we extended our stay for 4 nights. Fast wifi. Breakfast is generous and tasty.

The location is perfect, safe neighbourhood and with bars and excellent restaurants just round the corner. The park is walking distance and definitely worth the walk. We recommend La Lucia restaurant which is a mere 5 minutes walk from the accommodation.

Now to the best part, the small friendly family run feel of 816 bnb. Gladys and Jorge made us feel so welcome and always communicated with great helpfulness, despite our very poor Spanish speaking skills. Their daughter helped us when a tour we had booked was running late and they always looked after our best interests. We think the bnb is incredible and we would recommend it to anyone travelling to Mendoza who is looking for something that is a world away from the major hotel stays but in our opinion is a much better way to experience Mendoza!

My husband booked this B&B after reading the great reviews. When we arrived we met George and he was very nice, and had us check out our room before taking our luggage up the stairs. The room was large and did have AC. The breakfast was very weak. Each morning we started with a small bowl of cornflakes and waited for George's wife to microwave medialunas. We were then brought a few sweet spreads and some cold toast. The breakfast was the same the two mornings we were there. We ask George to arrange a hotel and trip to the hot springs and he never did so. The next day we asked his wife and she relayed the task to George. The price was lost in translation and the day we were to leave we had to cancel the entire trip because the price was unreasonably high (double the amount he originally quoted). We changed hotels for our last night in Mendoza and arranged all of our tours on our own through local companies. There several similarly priced hotels in the area that provide much better services. Please be advised the owners do not speak English and Will expect you to speak Spanish even if you are a beginner.

Lamentamos que su estadia en 816 no haya sido de su agrado.
Es una pena que haya habido un mal entendido en cuanto a su excursion a las termas, esos problemas vienen generalmente como usted dijo por el Idioma.
Los locales por lo general no estan obligados a hablar otros idiomas sino quien viene a su país debe tratar de entender. Es casi una norma Mundial .
Lamento también que su apreciación del desayuno haya sido de esa forma.
Si el bowl de cereales diámetro 10 cm le pareció pequeño usted podría haber repetido la porción cuantas veces hubiese deseado. Las medialunas son horneadas . Y lamentamos que su tostada haya llegado fria. Si el desayuno era débil como usted lo llama podríamos haber agregado algo de su gusto, ademas de las bebidas calientes, el jugo de naranja, el jamón y queso, 3 tipos de mermeladas caseras , y 4 tipos de panificados blancos e integrales, para cumplir con sus expectativas.
Lamentamos mucho que la estadía en 816 Bed & Breakfast no le haya gustado. Tratamos de complacer al huésped en todos los servicios y mejorar dia a dia con los comentarios constructivos que nos brindan.
We regret that your stay at 816 was not to his liking.
It's a shame that there has been a misunderstanding about their excursion to the hot springs, these problems usually come as you said by the language.
Locals usually are not required to speak other languages ​​but who comes to your country should try to understand. It is almost a world standard.
I also regret that his appreciation breakfast has been that way.
If the cereal bowl diameter 10 cm seemed small you could have repeated many times had the desired portion. The croissants are baked. And we regret that your toast has arrived cold. If breakfast was weak as you call it we could have added something to their liking, plus hot drinks, orange juice, ham and cheese, 3 types of homemade jams, and 4 types of white and whole baked goods, to meet your expectations.
We are very sorry that the stay in 816 Bed & Breakfast has not liked. We try to please the guest in all services and improve every day to give us constructive comments.

Stayed here in February as part of our honeymoon. This is a great little b&b just outside the centre of Mendoza. Only 5 minutes walk to the main Plaza Independencia. There's only 3 rooms so it's lively and quiet. We had a double room. Comfortable bed and hot showers, and immaculately clean. Jorge and Gladys, the owners, are both lovely and make every effort to ensure you are welcomed, looked after and have anything and everything that you need...including arguably the nicest breakie in Argentina!

Jorge makes a great tour advisor and gave us loads of tips on how to get to places, like the wineries of course!

All in all, we loved it here. A great place to stay for location, comfort, and price!

Many thanks Jorge and Gladys

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.
