We stayed here only two nights and we regret greatly we didnt stay an extra day just to enjoy the hotel. the view from our room was incredible. Each room has a terrace with deck chairs. The place has two llamas and little foxes come for breakfast and dinner. The walk to tilcara is 20- 30 mins and very enjoyable.... More

North of Argentina is beautiful and the 2 nights we spent in Tilcara were amazing. Cerro Chico is very nice, the view is terrific and then comes the owner. Nour is very nice, friendly and full of suggestions for your trips. Totally suggested.

A quaint, cozy, and quiet hideaway built into the hill (cerro) surrounding Tilcara, Salta, Argentina. It's about a ten minute drive from the town square, though it's along some pretty rough roads! The rooms are spacious and comfortable with gorgeous views from morning until dawn. The owner, Nour, is an incredibly friendly Frenchmen who opened Cerro Chico about ten years... More

While travelling around Northern Argentine all the way from Buenos Aires without booking any hotels or activities in advance, we have come to accidentally find this pleasant surprise. We were greeted with laughter and smiles by llamas and the host. We managed to get a room without booking, even know it is not the usual practise here. It is very... More

Spent 4 days at Cerro Chico wonderful host and hostess. Plenty of helpful information about the area. Very comfortable accommodation. Rough road adds to the charm.great walks at the back of the hotel along the water race you get the true feel of the surroundings not to mention the views.would definitely return

Stunningly beautiful hotel above the city of Tilcara. Upon arrival, a jovial Frenchman, Souk greeted us with a huge smile and loads of enthusiasm. He loves what he does, and you can see his passion carry through every detail of the 7-room hotel. The rooms are quaint and clean, views- stunning, customer service- spot on! Souk even gave us a...

This was a wonderful place to stay for a few days at the end of our tour in the north. Nour has created an astonishingly beautiful, relaxing haven in this lovely valley. He was an excellent, eccentric host and very helpful in suggesting local places to go, eat and walk. The foxes (almost perfectly tame) were an added attraction! The... More

Great location! Best views ever. Okay breakfast. Nice staff. Beautiful spacious cabins. Lovely garden. And last but not least, a wonderful and colorful host. The best place to stay if you go to quebrada/ jujuy. We used Cerro Chico as our base, stayed for 5 nights! It is a 20/30 min walk to the tilcara village, a beautiful walk. If... More

Our cabin at Cerro Chico was sweet and private with incredible views across the valley to the red mountains on the other side. We were in Quebrada de Humahuaca for three days and this was a great location to stay at during our visit - easy to get south to Purmamarca and to see the salt flats at Salinas Grandes... More
