We loved our stay in this charming "boutique"inn, The peace and quiet of the garden, the refreshing pool and relaxing on the patio provided restful balance to winery tours, a spectacular Andes trip, art museums and other activities.
Our studio room had very comfortable beds, bath and furnishings, a small refrigerator & kitchenette. The nighttime quiet was delicious, breakfast was great and the local staff warm and helpful.
Posada owner/hosts Ellen Hoffman (free-lance writer) and Ricardo Accurso (jeweler,designer, artist and more) are lovely people, fluent in Spanish,with excellent suggestions for dining and other activities. They also provide customized winery and other tours through their "Amazing Mendoza Tours" (www.amazingmendoza.com). (We recommend these as well.)
The Posada's location in a quiet residential district was just a 10-minute walk down tree-lined streets to the center of Mendoza, its Independence Plaza., the beautiful Plaza Espana and other sights.. We enjoyed walking through this neighborhood with small local food and other stores, different housing styles and gardens, seeing how Mendozans live. It made us feel more part of the city--less like "gringo" turistas.
We also walked to excellent restaurants. Our first night we sat outside opposite a lovely small park, ate and drank very well and enjoyed the famiies with kids playing in the park (quietly) until 10 pm. Local diners were still coming in at that hour.
We certainly recommend the Posada!
