The staff here is really friendly and helpful. The place is central and within walking distance from the bus terminal, just south of the plaza. The Balcarce area is about 20 minute walk away.
The place is clean, with access to a kitchen but it is in needs of some basic maintenance like changing a knob that staid in my hand after turned it to get water.
The table tennis and the roof terrace are great.
It's a good place with good value for money.

... of the night he gave Teri his Facebook info so he could stay in touch. The other waiter had lived in Miami and Hawaii (he literally pulled up his pant leg to show us his tattoo of the islands on his calf...using his favorite phrase "check it out check it out) before admitting that he was back in Mendoza because caught in a DUI checkpoint and sent to an illegal immigrant detention center before being deported.

The March to the North

Our bus from Mendoza took us through an array of very different landscapes, ranging from vast open deserts to the snow caps of the Andes on the border of Chile. We had reserved the front row on the top deck to insure that we had the best view in the house. All in all the journey was pretty smooth bar a few technical faults with the engine every so often. Salta is one of the larger towns in the North of Argentina and is situated on ...

So it turns out that it is harder to get to Bolivia than I thought, or at least takes longer. One option from Asuncion is to go northwest through the Paraguayan and Bolivian Chaco to Santa Cruz, but the Bolivian side is unpaved and it is a 24 hour bus ride. Instead, I decided to go via Salta, Argentina. To get to Salta from Asuncion, I first had to go to Resistencia, Argentina, which according to Lonely ...

... on the 20-hour bus ride to Salta. I’d miss that flight from Buenos Aires after all, and there was no turning back.

I trusted the other travelers, and hoped that their words, in the end wouldn’t lead me astray. I hoped that wherever I found myself I could handle it. In the end I wasn’t too worried, because everything seemed so realistic. I was no longer considering travelling to be such a fantasy. It ...

... from hell we just hit our beds and collapsed. These are the days when travelling really takes it out of you.

Saturday 26th November:

After a good nights sleep we woke up and decided to walk around the city. After a lazy morning, and some breakfast we popped out to explore. Only to find out that it was a ghost town out there. Siestas are a big thing in Argentina. After 12 o'clock, it all shut down for about 4 to 5 hours... That ridiculous!! So there wasn't a lot we could ...
