If you a looking for a perfect example of "old Salta" hospitality and charm, mixed with modern Salta conveniences, this is the place to stay. I have stayed at the Hotel Salta many times and encouraged friends to stay there. Its not overwhelming, it feels like home -- unlike the hotels that are of more recent construction and higher prices. The rooms have been updated and are comfortable (not old). The staff are wonderful, and the place is "authentic" Salta. It is perfectly located at the corner of the main colonial style plaza, across from local eateries, artesanry shops, and the theatre (with ballet and orchestra!), museums, etc. There is a store with old silver antiquities associated with the traditional gauchos and famous horses of Salta. But the hotel is typically Salta, -- understated and not excessively formal. One of my friends who stayed at Hotel Salta came down with a flu bug, and as soon as they knew she was not feeling well, the hotel sent a FREE doctor visit with two nurses to evaluate her in her room and they gave her free medication, because this hotel has a "protection policy" for their guests. Because the prices have to keep up with high inflation rates in Argentina, the people who answer the phone may not give you the exact price several months in advance, but their prices have been fair over the years so its wise to go with the flow and commit without knowing the exact price in advance. The windows have the "parisian" shades that can be lowered to darken the room, or opened to look out on the impressive views. Hotel Salta has a great spa with good massage treatments in a separate building near the pool, and a private parking area that is locked. Nothing to dislike here!! Just tell the reception people what you need, with the rather formal respect that Salteños use with each other. Enjoy!
Ask for a room looking toward the San Franciso Cathedral, if you want a more private location. Or if...
