Hotel Huacalero is located in a unique setting - amidst picturesque scenery (almost) on the Tropic of Capricorn. My family (2 teenage boys and my father in law) spent 4 nights at the hotel, using it as our base to explore the region. The service was attentive and professional, easily resolving any issue we encountered. The staff - all young... More

In 1949 a Spaniard with respiratory problems had a manor on this site, which he turned into a hotel as friends and guests started visiting him because the place had extremely clean air. Now there is a luxurious building in its place on the Tropic of Capricorn that you would not imagine to find in these surroundings. Not everything might... More

Very good base on the road to Jujuy: not too far from Salta or from northern canyon. The hotel facade looks like an American motel but the similarity stops there. The interior is colorful and friendly. The rooms are large and comfortable. This is not the last 5 stars around but nothing is missing. The cocktails are delicious, good food... More

Nice hotel with comfortable rooms, in a stylish way. In this hotel conceptual arts in the styling and decoration together with the kind staff make the atmosphere friendly and enjoyable. The bigger rooms have just that bit more value for money that's worth it (we had both). Just to know that there is a road at a 60 meters from... More

Impressively restored four years ago after standing empty for 16 years, Hotel Huacalera brilliantly combines attractive local decoration and design with international standards of accommodation, service and cleanliness - for many years hard to find in this region. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated, with cactus wood widely in evidence in the ceilings. The beds are comfortable and all... More

After long day riding the Safari de los Nubes, we arrived in Huacalera. The hotel surroundings is out of this world, as was the service and the ambiance of the rooms. The rooms are nice and large, and the corridor ample with decorative elements from the animistic lives and festivals of the native Indians. The room itself was large and... More

Beautiful hotel on the main road yet very quiet as there was no traffic did not try the spa facilities but my room was superior with a large balcony. The restaurant is top and wine not exagerated in price. Clean, trendy interior, quality. I liked it
