Posada Borravino is tucked away along one of Mendoza’s oldest poplar-lined streets in the city’s Chacras de Coria neighborhood. The country inn has eight distinct guestrooms that offer a peaceful respite in a quiet Mendocenean neighborhood. The hotel’s design is simple but elegant. Rooms feel clean and refreshing with rustic yet stylish furniture, patina walls, and high, white-washed wooden ceilings.
A boutique hotel experience in every sense, here guests frequently mingle in the sun-drenched living room and cultivate friendships over bottles of malbec and long evening asados (barbecues). The back garden provides an inviting place to enjoy a good book, dip in the small swimming pool, or simply soak up the tranquil atmosphere. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about what to do and see in Mendoza—from winery tours to adventure activities. In the evenings, Posada Borravino is lit up by dozens of scented candles, creating a magical ambience that casts a rosy glow on your entire stay.

Explore Mendoza’s enchanting residential suburb by bicycle—visiting Chacras de Coria’s boutique wineries, tea houses, wine bars, and upscale restaurants. The rustic roads and tree-lined streets give the neighborhood a charming country feel, but the area has become an extension of downtown Mendoza, known for its wining and dining. Check out the main square, Plaza de Chacras, and its historic church Iglesia Nuestra Señora del Perpetuo Socorro. On Sundays, visit the open-air market, where vendors sell artisan wares and locals gather to enjoy live music.
