ARGENTINA – Huentala Hotel; the finest boutique hotel in Mendoza

Argentina - Mendoza - Huentala Hotel Review

The Huentala boutique hotel is centrally located in Mendoza and was my home for a night during my Argentina trip in 2015. It is of the same group of owners as the Sheraton Mendoza so I decided to try out the Huentala hotel during my third night in Mendoza. Enjoy reading about my experience at this boutique hotel.

The hotel

I arrived by taxi at the Huentala boutique hotel and the outside of the building already breathes a cozy atmosphere. Each window has a red sunscreen and green flowers on the balconies. The building itself looks also boutique; it’s in use as a hotel since 1976. When I entered the red, gold and marble colored lobby I was warmly greeted by the staff and quickly checked in to room 601. The hotel gives a very nice vibe making you feel at home quickly.

The rooms at Huentala Hotel

The room was large with a very large bed. For me a bit soft but this is personal, I prefer to almost sleep on a plank 🙂 A separate sitting area and a desk to work are located opposite the bed. The bathroom has a large bubble bath and separate room with toilet. The room has two cozy balconies with plants which are around the full front facade. I missed some seats but could be because winter just ended and it was still pretty cold they were not put there yet. Altogether a perfect room to spend some nights.

Facilities at Huentala Hotel

The hotel offers an outdoor pool, a SPA and a gym. There is a casino located which can be accessed from the next door Sheraton hotel. Don’t make it too late at the casino if you have to get up early. I can say from experience this is not a good idea.

Dining & Drinking at Huentala Hotel

The Huentala boutique hotel has a lobby bar and a restaurant. The restaurant has a kind of Mediterranean decor which is really nice. In the evening the bar has a happy hour and serves various cocktails. I tried dinner in the restaurant where I ordered (of course) an Argentina steak. Due to a small mix-up in the kitchen I got it medium well instead of medium rare. It was corrected right away! Mistakes happen and if they are corrected, perfect! Breakfast is served in the restaurant as well from 7 AM onwards. I had unfortunately only a quick breakfast as at 7:30 AM I had to leave already to the airport.
