A modern building, ample spaces and rooms, could do more in enhancing its ambience. Located in a big lot lacking more trees... pool looks good but didn't try. Breakfast ok, service good. A good location for visiting Talampaya Park, and provides for a good stay. Rooms are quiet, good heating, and allow a good sleep.

It's clean and comfortable, the rooms are spacious but standard, and the service is just right. There is no better choice if you are visiting the Parks in this region (Talampaya and Ischigualasto), so reserve with confidence. Take the hotel breakfast, but lunch or dine at La Palmera, 1 Km to the East of the hotel. If you have the... More

On our way from the Agua Negra Pass towards the San Francisco Pass, we found the hotel Pircas Negras pleasant enough to spend three nights there. The bedrooms have ample space and airconditioning, the bathrooms are comfortable and some rooms have large balconies overlooking the pool, which, however is not very clean. Wifi worked very well and breakfast offered a... More

The Pircas Negras Hotel, in Villa Union, is simple but have some style. Rooms are clean, with air coinditioning and also a fan in the roof that can make the job. As it is very hot and dry in the neigbourhood, you can refresh yourself in the pool. There is also a good restaurant with great food, "chorizo" for the... More

Not a bad place but our room was a bit worn. Staff was friendly and breakfast OK (for argentine standards).

On the up side the hotel is adequate and the only other major hotel in the area is under the same management, the hotel also boasts a swimming pool . Comfy beds, decent air conditioning, plenty of hot water and adequate restaurant make the stay bearable, The shame of it is that if the worn out elements of the furnishings... More

The surroundings of Pircas Negras are marvelous. Mountains all over and a very quite small town of Villa Union made our experience unique. The hotel itself is very nice and clean. Simple rooms, no luxury but a fantastic attention ! It is worth to mention the restaurant La Ramada (inside the hotel): Great food, great service and very good wine

My mother, sister, husband and I stayed here on our trip to San Juan and Talampaya Canyon. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to the hotel, located on the road near Villa Unión. The architecture is reminiscent of ancient dwellings, the colour of the red Talampaya soil, and it is surrounded by old vineyards. We got two rooms on... More
