“Not great.”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

I stayed here one night before heading to the outskirts of Mendoza. The location is good, central in the small city.

I requested a non-smoking room and our room and the entire hotel for that matter had a lingering smell of cigarettes. I had trouble sleeping because of the overwhelming smell of cigarettes, it permeated the bedding. If you there is no difference between smoking and non-smoking, then do not advertise it that way and give those options. Breakfast was not great, but it was something. We didn't have a chance to use the pool but it looked nice enough.

When booking I knew it was just a quick overnight so I wasn't looking for anything fancy, just on budget. I would have been better off paying less money to stay at a nicer hostel. For what I got, it was overpriced. Not worth it.

I am not a critical person, but this hotel was completely awful. Our room was burning hot as there was a centrally controlled radiator that we could not turn off. We could not sleep. Additionally, even though they are located in the heart of Argentina's wine country, the hotel did not have a corkscrew for us to borrow. The staff was completely unhelpful.

We were in Mendoza for a couple of days in order to prepare for our Aconcagua climb.
We booked this hotel on-line a few days in advance from Buenos Aires.
The frontdesk staff were helpful and arranged without any hassle accomodation of all our huge baggage. The Carollo hotel is connected with its sister hotel Princess on the other side.
The Carollo and Princess share the breakfast and the swimming pool.
The only hassle was the aircondition. As soon as you leave your room the aircondition is switched off. You need to tell the frontdesk staff to switch it on when you re-enter your room.

Just one block away you find the Avenida Sarmiento with several very good restaurants, eg. the Facundo and a two good mountain equipment store where you can buy camping gas.

this is a hotel that needs a bit of a refit but most of the staff are pleasent and helpful
the pool can be cool but is clean and well kept and for its location the hotel is more than quiet.
unfortunately my stay was marred by a over flirtious and resentful gay recectionist
as i did not return his amore he was troublesome and outright unhelpful
refusing one night to get or open a bottle of wine for us , something a different staff member was more than happy to do the next day, he made collceting my key troublesome and annoying as he was very unprofessional
if it wasnt for that i would book again as its a pleasent medium rate hotel
with good staff just be wary of one overly flirty and childish receptionist

The staff at this hotel are friendly and very helpful, however the rooms are small and very dated. There are only two temperatures in the room, hot when the airconditioner is off and freezing when it is on. Also, the only way to turn it on and off is via the front desk! The bathooms are miniscule and the shower cubicle is only half a metre wide.

For the same price, Hotel Internacional is around the corner on Ave Sarmiento and is a much more comfortable stay. The only drawback is the noise from the street, but that is also a problem at Carollo.

I was in Mendoza for 2 days,well I seen the vineyards and the most important up to the montains as well.
the staff are nice and they can help you about the restaurante,advice about any kind of trip all in Argetnia and South America as well.
nice brekfast every morning.the hotel in the central so you dont need to use taxi you can go by walk.from oct.-jan.here is spring so is not so hot and you can enjoy the Summer and your time as well.
all the best!!!!
P.S.if you are planing to travel in Sout America try to book everything a month before is cheaper,travelling by bus is comfortable and you can see more about the country(well if you have time)
all the best

This place needs to monitor and control air conditioners from front desk. The units freeze up if they run for too long so be sure to get it turned off while you are way from the hotel. The street noise is unbearable so opening the window is not a good solution. If you go for breakfast after 10am, you will be feeling a bit like a pigion trying to grasp for a little bit of crumbs. Breakfast at 9am is quite civilized but the eggs are always cold. Several times the room smelled terrible but they managed to fix it somehow.
