Recently we visited Salta for 3 nights and we stayed at the Hotel del Virrey. The building in colonial style is a real delight for the eye (the reception and breakfast room included);there's also a small,but quiet garden. Staff is great:no request seems to be "too much" for them. Breakfast is the best we got in Argentina; coffee and tea... More

Location of the hotel is very good. Close to balcadere with all Peña restaurants and terraces. Also just coupe of bloks from the central plaza. Breakfast is very little, fresh fruits and sweets good be better. Our room was not very clean and the pool is not a pool but a very small bath in the garden. Garden is nice,... More

Beatufull and charming little hotel. A few blocks away from the city centre. The street behind the hotel (Avd Belgrano) is where you will find many restaurant and bars with folklore music, this street is also the better one for walking to and from the city centre. The hotel is only 4 blocks from the Tren a las Nubes train... More

Beautilly restored building, superbly maintained. Staff is professional and extremely helpful ( but not that warm, fuzzy, j.d. power rated fake customer service kind you find in the states ). The rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was lovely. When we needed to get out before breakfast for a tour, the desk clerk made coffee for us himself!... More

We stayed here in August 2015. We found the accommodation poor and definitely not worth the money. The electric socket was hanging off the wall, bathroom was mouldy, toilet seat broken and stained, shower fittings rusty and room dirty. We were astonished at the TripAdvisor reviews. It is far from a four star. We were due to stay for a... More

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
