Location is a main value for this hotel, close to most city attractions and restaurants. Rooms are nice but do not expect a view as it is all on the first floor. The swimming pool is very small so don't fantaisy too much on it. Nevertheless the staff is very nice and the place better than average for the price.... More

What a great small hotel in Salta. We walked everywhere from the hotel. Very peaceful with good wi-fi in rooms. Lovely small pool in the sunny backyard where you can sit and escape. Attentive staff who speak beautiful English.

The hotel is a beautiful old colonial building & each room has a window that opens onto a courtyard. We walked pretty much everywhere from the hotel which was great. The staff were very helpful & friendly. When we arrived there had been quite a big downpour & dirt from the roof had dripped from the ceiling vent in the... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights after our exhausting tour in Bolivia and we could really enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this hotel. The hotel is well situated, 10 minutes walking from the main square. The staff is really kind and helpful. The room was nice and well equipped but too dark and too close to the street.... More

We arrived and were given a room with an incredibly soft bed, make that lumpy. After the first night we requested another room or at least another bed.
