Great and spotless place to stay - everything was perfect, and the staff so friendly! Highly recommended!! Only a few minor things: as is the case everywhere in South America, soundproofing could be improved - we could hear the neighbors' tv, but only for a short time. Also, the bikes that you can use for free could be better maintained... More

Very friendly and attentive staff. Hotel is on a quiet street one block from the main plaza. The rooms are large. Nice balcony around the central courtyard, ideal place to enjoy the local wines. Excellent breakfast.

It was a pleasure to spend the night here. The hotel is beautiful, with all the amenities, plus really comfortable beds. Staff were friendly and helpful. Very nice breakfast buffet included with the stay. I would come back and stay here again if I'm on Cafayate.

After the amazing drive from the City of Salta to Cafayate (located in the heart of the high altitude wine making region of Argentina) you will find Villa Vicuna well located on a quiet street just off the main square and half a block from a group of bodegas that are located in the town. There is everything you need... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Cafayate. Villa Vicuna is a little hotel very center located. The staff don't speak any english but are mostly very friendly (only one who showed exasperation very quickly to our non-existing spanish language skills). All the rooms face the two internal courtyards. Our room was located on the ground floor. It shows that it... More

We LOVED Cafayate. Such a tranquil, beautiful place. (And we never went to the wineries. Just hiked, biked and relaxed.) And the Villa Vicuna helped enhance the experience. A lovely inn; very peaceful courtyard; nice, large room; good breakfasts; use of free bikes, etc. The only "but" is the staff does not speak English so you need a modicum of... More

This little B'nB is quite close to the main plaza in Cafayate. It is clean, quiet and quaint with wi-fi available in courtyard outside our room. The bathroom shower was amazing, towels soft and luxurious. We appreciated all the "goodies" like shampoo, etc. in complimentary little bags for each guest. Nice touches in room decor helped to set this small... More

Centrally located hotel, small but comfortable. Very clean with efficient staff. Rooms well appointed and everything worked well. Breakfast was the usual Argentinian style with lots of sweet things, very little protein. Not sure why the preference for count chocula, fruit loops and sugar frosted flakes look alikes...where is the all bran? also great variety of cake and cookies for... More

A hotel that charges USD130 per night cannot afford not to have decent internet in their rooms, definitely not nowadays when internet acess is an essential and certainly when there is no excuse as the hotel sits in the town center so there are no connections problems. Also, one of the nights there were hotel workers (or their relatives?) shouting... More
