La Candela is nicely located a few minutes from the main square in a quiet street. The reception area is welcoming and the staff, in the main, friendly and helpful. The pool area and garden are also delightful. Our room, down a dark corridor, was a little 'tired' with a fairly basic bathroom but the bed was comfortable and a... More

A convenient walk from Salta's main square, and a much quieter location as a result. An attractive hotel from the outside, and pleasant on the inside, although having travelled with friends, it's evident that room quality is not equal (we were fortunate to have a good view over the pool). The room was compact, the bed was comfortable, and the... More

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel and we were very pleased with the service: extremely helpfull and friendly staff. Central location, good and clean rooms and wifi. The breakfast is nothing special (typical Argentinan).

A good hotel option, centrally located and an original setting in a colonial style house with nice communal areas and pool. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. A little more choice at breakfast, including fruit, would be good.

We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were okay and decent, clean. Wifi didn't work in our room though but it was working downstairs only. The furniture in the room seemed outdated but overall it was a pleasant stay.

Arrival: wonderful welcome, delightful reception area, very respectful to local architecture and history. The room was good, clean, warm and comfortable. Would have appreciated coffee making, but that's being picky. Plenty of hot water. Great outdoor space that was kept beautifully. Nice pool (too cold in July) but we loved sitting outside reading in the sun trap, lovely plants and... More

The staff at La Candela is incredibly welcoming and friendly. They have a great breakfast service and served breakfast early for us upon request. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is great. A quiet side street within close walking distance to the main plaza. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

We spent 4 nights in this lovely interesting hotel, and would have happily stayed longer, if we had more time. An easy walk to the central square, several good restaurants within 10 minutes walk at night and the staff were superb, very helpful with suggestions and booking a couple of tours. Our bedroom was spacious, the ensuite smart and very... More

We were in Salta for ten days. We used La Candela as our home base from which to explore the city, surrounding towns, Cafayate wine district, and spectacular landscapes of this part of Argentina.
