Mendoza City Center – Where to stay in Mendoza for tourists

If you are coming to Mendoza to experience Argentinian culture, history, and architecture, then you should choose a hotel in the Mendoza City Center. This is the best area for tourists who are visiting Mendoza or Argentina for the first time, or for travelers who may be interested in a day trip to wine country but prefer an urban environment.

Wine country lodging tends to be pricy, so travelers seeking budget-friendly accommodation should consider staying in the city. This is the best place for exploring the historic sights of the city, including Plaza Independencia, as well as many family-friendly parks scattered throughout the city. Of course, plenty of tour operators will take you on a day trip to wine country so you don’t miss out!

Chacras de Coria – Where to stay in Mendoza with Family

Just south of Mendoza is the suburban neighborhood of Chacras de Coria, a residential area that skews towards the upper class. The town is fairly compact, but there are many things to see and do, with excellent restaurants and accommodation.

For those not wanting to stay all the way out in Uco Valley, Chacras de Coria offers a nice compromise. There are plenty of bodegas in town, plus wineries in nearby Lujan de Coyo, and downtown Mendoza is just 30 minutes away.

Las Heras – Where to stay in Mendoza for Outdoor Lovers

On the north side of Mendoza is the suburban area called Las Heras. Many travelers stay here for easy access to the Andes Mountains, and the nearby hiking trails and hot springs. If you are visiting the Mendoza area for outdoor adventure, then Las Heras or nearby El Challao are excellent options. You will be outside of the city congestion, near the mountains, but still only about 15 minutes from downtown Mendoza.

Maipu – Where to stay in Mendoza for Foodies

About 20 minutes southeast of Mendoza is the wine town of Maipu. As a major wine hub of this area, it is home to the National Wine and Grape Harvest Museum, a great place to learn about the history and the culture around Argentina’s national beverage.

Two early 20th-century villas form the museum and were built by Italian immigrants who started one of the first vineyards in the area. Of course, good wine must be paired with excellent food, and there is no shortage of outstanding cuisine in Maipu. This is the best area for tourists who want a culinary experience and don’t care for the faster pace of an urban destination.

Godoy Cruz – Where to stay in Mendoza for Nightlife

On the south side of Mendoza, Godoy Cruz is a lively neighborhood known for nightlife and tango. It’s one of the most densely populated areas of Mendoza, but still has the tree-lined streets that Mendoza is known for.

As a sort of gateway between the wine country and the city, Godoy Cruz has plenty of bodegas as well as fantastic restaurants to take advantage of the agricultural products of the region, including olive oil which is now almost as popular as wine. The streets of Godoy Cruz are always festive, with events and festivals happening year-round.

Uco Valley – Where to stay in Mendoza for Wine Lovers

Uco Valley is the main wine region of this part of Argentina. Starting about an hour south of Mendoza, this area is often called the “Napa of the South,” although Argentinians might prefer to call Napa the Uco of the North! Malbec is the prevailing wine made here, but other reds and even a few whites are produced here as well.

This fertile region sits at the foot of the Andes Range, providing breathtaking views in every direction. Boutique hotels and wine resorts are scattered throughout the valley, so having a car (or a hired driver) is a crucial part of enjoying your stay in the Uco Valley.
