This B&B was a hit with us. Fantastic sprawling old Argentine house with beautiful details, made cozy and stylish by German/Italian owners. European antiques, radiator heating, perfect breakfast, and even a full library with loads of books in several languages!

A beautiful place conveniently located within walking distance to the city center. Tasteful interior. Very warm welcome (by staff) with coffee and cake. Delicious and opulent breakfast with homemade products (best bread and OJ of our 20 days trip). However, our male host was not very friendly. Although his behavior was decent, we didn’t think him very helpful. He was... More

We spent 2 nights at Carpe Diem and enjoyed our stay very much, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and they assisted us gracefully. Silke liaised on our behalf with a tour company, altro turismo, and our visit of the local sights was fabulous. Highly recommended for a stay with a personal touch.

We only spent one night in this lovely B & B in Salta. The location was great and the owner, Silke, is a pleasure! She was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was quite nice and the property is beautiful. While my husband and I had a very comfortable room in the main area, my son didn't love his single... More

Very close to the centre, Carpe Diem is a b&b to call home. Comfortable and clean bedrooms, lovely breakfast and excellent hosts that will help you with everything you need. A great place to stay in Salta. If you like tea , Silke has a great selection to take home with you! Just lovely!

The comments about no air conditioning and low privacy are correct. The fan in our room was quite noisy. We hardly slept the first night. Also Silke was out of town leaving the place to Ricardo who was not friendly nor had any interest in us at all. He gave us the tour on how to open and close the... More

Well there are some positive points for the b&b but i think for the same price one can get newly renovated places to stay in salta. Plus-: central location, the hosts- very helpful and nice. The rooms- no air conditining, only ventilator which isnt enough to cool down, cause the room windows open to the garden and one doesnt get... More

As with Lamborghini in recent years German efficiency is combined with Italian flare to make this an outstanding place to stay whilst in salta. It has a very homely feel with literal inner sanctum location making it a great place to relax whilst seeing the sites. The breakfast is the best we have had in Argentina and we love the... More

Nice small b & b in the center of town. Easy to walk to the main square. The breakfast is lovely and there is a pretty garden in the rear that you can sit in and unwind. Very quiet for being in the center of town.

We stayed here for three nights in January of 2015. We really liked this small quaint bed and breakfast and would stay again. We were well looked after under Ricardo's home and he made sure we were taken care of even at the crack of dawn when we had to leave for the bus station. The house is amazing and... More
