We only got to spend one night in this lovely bed and breakfast as we were traveling a loop from Salta. However, I could have stayed longer! The room was comfortable and the property was very well-maintained. The owner was delightful! The breakfast was particularly memorable. There was an incredible assortment of pastries and baked goods (which we were told... More

If you want to spend more than a day or so in the area then this place is great as it has a swimming pool too. The owners are lovely and Christian the son speaks english if you need it. They'll give you advice, book wine tastings/ lunch for you and generally provide a really flawless service. The rooms are... More

We enjoyed our large room with a view of the mountains. The backyard had a nice pool and sitting area. The hotel itself is well positioned close to several wineries. Breakfast was nice with fruit salads juices and breads along with other nice touches to get you going in the morning. The father and mother were really sweet and helpful... More

Large rooms ( we chose the top floor). Very quiet. Just 3 blocks from central square. About 6 blocks from bus station. Several wineries within two blocks to visit for tasting. Air conditioning, microwave and coffee cups in room for making your own coffee. Breakfast served from 8-10. Christian was a wonderful bilingual staff member who gave us several suggestions... More

Nice house and surroundings, pool, possibility to make your own BBQ in the garden. City center and restaurants are in walking distance. Parking is on the street, but it's safe. Large rooms with fridge, microwave, comfortable bed, table and chairs and nice pictures. The hotel is run by a family, all of them friendly and helpful. Breakfast: Ham, Cheese, coffee,... More

We stumbled across this place after booking into a different place and hating it! And what a find! An absolute gem. The hotel itself is in a quiet street close to the main square, it is super clean and the rooms are big and decorated with character. It was lovely to look out of the huge windows at the pool...

We stayed here for just one night recently on our tour of the North West region of Argentina. The hotel is in a quiet area quite close to the town centre and appears to be run by Eric Clapton's long lost, bread-making brother. The host was very relaxed and made us feel very welcome, especially at the lovely home prepared... More

This hotel has it all: character, spacious rooms, impeccable landscaping, a cool pool and a very helpful host in Cristian. Off the main drag, it's a quiet stay - and the eastern-facing rooms and french doors make for an excellent morning light to enjoy your coffee.
