The service was the best feature of this hotel for us. Fernando was at the desk when we arrived, and he helped my husband park and carry in the luggage. He somehow managed to get my son and me into the room while my husband drove around the block. We had only booked a very reasonably priced double room, but... More

We were surprised how lovely the hotel was considering the price for the room, we had expected clean and simple, but we had not expected the old Spanish colonial feel. Very tastefully done. A great base to visit Salta and helpful staff.

My wife and I enjoyed our recent three night stay at Hotel del Virrey. It is a charming one-storey hotel with large clean rooms, red tile floors, windows that open onto little courtyards, and lots of light. Rooms are quiet even though hotel is on bust street. Good location - for blocks to the city's main square and close to... More

This small hotel (only 6) rooms is well situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood a 10 min walk from Plaza 9 July.

Hotel del Virrey is a small, nice city hotel. It has a private parkingplace which we could use. You have to ask staff to open it for you, but that is not a problem because you will use it only again when you leave.

Everything about this small hotel was good. The staff could not have been more helpful. We ate at the two restaurants they recommended and had beautiful meals both nights. The hotel is in a good position and is a lovely building. We only wished we could have stayed longer.
