This was one of the great hotel experiences of a 3+ week trip to Argentina. Good size rooms, each one with a window overlooking a little courtyard or the back yard with swimming pool. Decorated with historic touches, old photographs on walls, hand-made white quilts, lovely bath & shower. The original living room, now sharing as breakfast room, as lovely... More

The hotel is quaint and charming with a pretty entry way. The suite facing the street is very comfortable and spacious however extremely noisy. Other rooms are quiet but considerably smaller. I was not impressed with the pool area at all. There is free Wifi but only in the common areas. The hotel is located within a walking distance of... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed the Hotel´ services and features. We are deeply sorry you got affected by the surrounding sounds near your room. The Hotel is established on an old house with thick walls, so usually noise is not a problem. Anyway, right now we are working to solve that issue definitively.... 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. They couldn't accommodate us but did turn the mattress over - that didn't help either. The staff was very polite and helpful but I think the hotel management needs to replace the... More

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.

Dear Isabelle, thank you for your review! Right like you say, we are a Boutique Hotel with four stars service and the best possible price! Combining that with the beauty and magic of our centennial building, and the warmth and readiness of our staff, you find in Hotel del Virrey the best available option :) Best regards, Silvina Cornejo Manager More

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.

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.
