I too am looking for a good mattress for a double size bed. The one i spent a lot on just a few years ago is crap. Where can i buy a good mattress at a reasonable price. I have a very bad back and i need a firm, quality mattress.
Does anyone have experience with this problem?

Yup. The best solution is to go to a specialist store and buy a Tempur mattress - you'll have to dig deep into your pockets though. Very deep. But as you spend a third of your life laying on it and back problems can be very debilitating, not to mention painful.....it may be worth it.

I have a FIRM double bed mattress* about 3 months old that I am not using (to Firm for me) *it is actually 2 single mattresses making a double if you put them together. The brand is PIERO "Linea Resortes Exlusivo High Class" they are blue with clouds in color, I want $900 pesos.

I read this chain of posts before heading out to search for our mattress and I wanted to let you know what we found. We visited Le Cardeuse, Piero and also Rosen. Le Cardeuse for me seemed badly made, I could feel the springs when I felt the edge of the mattress, Piero was recommended to me by an OSDE physician to have the best foam mattress for the spine, although what I really wanted was something that could compare to the technology and quality of my mattresses in england and I did not want the foam mattresses commonly offered here.

Rosen had a showroom which made it easy see the range and the layout of the store explained well the steps up in price and quality and it seemed to be reflective. You can buy a good 160cm by 200cm Rosen mattress for less than 2000 peso, and ours Emocion for around 3000. The website is also excellent to see before you go. They had 30% discount with a Club la Nacion card during October, and 30% off all products with Galicia bank card ongoing on one day a week. They have a large range held in the warehouse, which could be delivered in a couple of days and what they don´t have they can deliver to your door in 20 days.

For me, the things I find frustrating here are the increased costs for using a credit card, even paying in one payment rather than the 6 installments and so on that they expect. Piero and Cardeuse both had this pricing structure, which having a Visa debit and Visa credit card but not an Argentinean bank card or means to withdraw 3000 pesos cash without a fee was quite upsetting for me. The employee in Rosen was helpful, and trustworthy so I can agree with Lea that this for me, was a great experience. I have since seen that there are a lot of mattress stores- Confort Belgrano and others. We didn´t view Simmons but I can only speak of the quality, showroom, staff and experience of those we visited- For me, convenience, availability, being able to see the complete range, not paying more than I need to and always paying something relative to the quality of the item are the most important. Mattress done Fridge Freezer next!

I have a Piero brand mattress that is blue with the clouds on it. We bought our Queen size (medium firmness, not soft but not hard) with box springs for around $1000 pesos (don't remember exact amounts--I bought it from a friend who used it for a few months so am not sure of the new price) and it's extremely comfy! It is not a foam mattress. I have no complaints at all, only good sleep.

we bought a queen-size Sealy mattress here from a store in Belgrano. ('ll try to find the name if you PM me). It has a euro top and pillowtop and is very, very comfortable. it was around 1800 pesos without the base. I have a bad back too and need something firmer - i recommend this brand

I have a Sealy mattress (4 Luna) in my apartment in Palermo, it's the most comfortable bed I have slept on EVER.... expensive but worth the money.

I own a Simmons Pillow top mattress that is super comfortable. It's what many of the higher end hotels here use or buy from. It was expensive at around 5,000 pesos but I've had it several years and really comfortable.

I thought I'd share the information I have from the concierge in the Four Seasons Buenos Aires. The hotel brings it's mattresses in from the USA, I am not sure this is the case for other Four Seasons hotels in Europe and so on but certainly this one uses Stearns and Foster. The address is One Office Parkway at Sealy Drive, Trinity, NC 27370.you can email them at helpdesk@stearnsandfoster.com or call 1-866-BEDDING (233-3464)

If you are interested you can buy the duvets and feather pillows from the Phoenix down Corporation at address 85 Road 46 West, Totawa, New Jersey, Zip 07512. Telephone 97-3812-8100.

The sheets are by Rivolta Carminagni in Italy.The address is Via Visconti 15, Macherio, Milan, Post Code 20050. I hope this helps. You cannot buy the bedding from the Four Seasons in Buenos Aires, but I think you can in other countries such as England / US where the supplier is the same country. But at least if you want the same, you can find it here!

We bought our Simmons 3 years ago, it was only 2800 pesos then. Theirs was the only brand that did not sag when you sat on the edge, and the only one to offer a 10 year guarantee. In 3 years, nothing has gone wrong with it, we absolutely love our bed.

We bought it from a Simmons down on Jujuy. I can't remember if it was made in Argentina or made here.

Very important when you buy to ask about the guarantee. Most places will only offer 1 year guarantees...

Also sit on the edge of the mattress to see whether the side bulges or pops out, if it does, your mattress isn't going to last very long. It should be rigid.
