“Oasis in Salta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We recently stayed in Legado while visiting the Salinas Grandes, Purmamarca and Humahuaca, all in the greater Salta region. It lived up to its website and the positive reviews, from the moment we entered the narrow hallway that leads to reception. The road on which the hotel is located is somewhat nondescript but, once inside, Legado is an oasis of style and tranquility. As noted by previous reviewers, this boutique hotel is decorated to a high standard and this quality is retained throughout, including the more than ample bedrooms. The breakfast is good and the staff are very attentive. Any issues that needed dealing with were addressed in a very professional manner, in keeping with what you would expect from a hotel that clearly prides itself on its service and hospitality. For travellers who want a quiet, high quality, boutique experience in Salta, Legado should not disappoint.

We stayed at Legado Mitico in Salta for a total of 4 nights in august 2013, at their superior rooms.
I cannot think of anything that was not outstanding. It is a quintessential boutique hotel , private elegant in a early 20th century style. Scrupulously clean. Extremely functional. Very well decorated , as it is owned by architects. The breakfast was excellent by argentinian standards. The staff , professional ,very attentive and unobtrusive . And an overall attention to detail . The mattresses in our room category were excellent, . I tried to buy one in the US but they are made in Canada and not imported.
I highly recommend a visit to the north of Argentina, it is a remarkable experience. And when in Salta city the Legado Mitico hotel is the place to stay .

Room Tip: i would prefer the rooms facing the inner courtyard

We visited Salta whilst on Honeymoon and stayed a couple of nights at the Legado Mitico. It is a charmingly restored old townhouse with a relaxing library, extremely good service and high quality accommodation (we had one of the best rooms with its own outdoor terrace overlooking the courtyard - well positioned for plenty of afternoon sunshine). Where the hotel falls a little short is the rather uninspiring breakfast (there is no restaurant at this hotel, so they do the best they can - think doughy sweet croissants and cakes and stale coffee from a stainless steel tank and you're there). The location is excellent, with most of Salta's restaurants and bars just around the corner. We also enjoyed the pedestrian street market that opened up nearby on the Sunday morning.

Legado mitico is an ancient home converted into a boutique hotel. It belonged to the same family in Salta until the late 1980s. It is organized around a large courtyard, with trees and comfortable armchairs, where you can sip a glass of wine in the evening before going out to the "penas" in the neighborhood.
All rooms are quite large and very well appointed and the living rooms downstairs are exquisitely decorated, with minute attention to detail.
The rooms overlooking the courtyard are wonderful especially those with a balcony.
Breakfast is excellent and served in what must have formerly been the dining room so that you really feel that you are staying in a private home rather than a hotel.
Salta itself is a lovely, bustling city and it is wonderful to be able to relax at Legado Mitico after a full day of sightseeing or touring the area which offers some of the most beautiful landsacapes in Argentina.

Room Tip: rooms looking out on the courtyard

Legado Mitico is a fabulous experience in the beautiful city of Salta. Excellent location close to plazas, restaurants, entertainment and shopping. Gorgeous Old House. Timeless charm. Exquisite decor. Spacious rooms. Impeccable attention to detail. Professional service extended in a personal and affable manner. Internet plus a computer in the sitting room available to guests. Delicious foods prepared with care by an excellent chef. Thank you, Christian! A place not to miss. I recommended it and I will stay there again. The Best.

We stayed here for 3 nights off season and found the experience restful and luxurious. The building, is conveniently positioned within walking distance of the city's museums and restaurants. A beautiful high ceilinged building with a walled garden, library and dining area creating a feeling of calm and space and a strong argentinian identity. Our room was spacious and simply but tastefully decorated housing an enormous old wooden but immensely comfortable four poster bed . French doors opened out to a small private walled patio. The staff were attentive and helpful but unobtrusive - we will stay here again if we ever visit Salta again.

My husband and I spent 5 nights recently in this well located hotel in Salta. The location was excellent and we were able to walk to the main tourist spots including the cable car up San Bernardo Hill. There were also many good eating places close by.
The English speaking Staff could not have been more helpful. Our room was large and quiet and the internet facilities were excellent. The downstairs sitting area was also a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. I would highly recommend the Legado Mitico in Salta, Argentina.
