“Real 'Old World' Argentine Charm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Fantastic location, comfortable rooms, excellent food and friendly, helpful staff.

I'm just a little surprised about some comments stating the hotel is outdated. Maybe, just maybe, that has something to do with the fact it was built in 1942 - and they are retaining some of it's original charm. Maybe you'd be happier in a 2014 Travel Lodge.

Rooms have many original features, and are very comfortable. Bathrooms, linen, in fact all aspects of the hotel are absolutely immaculate.

Food, whether it's the buffets breakfast or evening meal, is exceptional.

Delighted with my two nights stay and wouldn't hesitate returning myself and/or recommending to others.

Revisiting the Hotel Salta proved an excellent choice. The location on the beautiful main square in Salta is ideally central and taxis, if like us you needed to get to the bus station, are easy to get and very cheap. We spent two separate nights in the hotel, once with a room with a view of the swimming pool and once with a view of the street. Neither was particularly noisy and both rooms were very comfortable with good WiFi. The reception staff were attentive and found the bags we had left whilst travelling very efficiently; it was a pleasant change to have someone bring our bags to the room. Very usefully we were able to get breakfast before 6.00 am as we had an early start on each of the mornings we were there. The pool is prettily situated in a garden area that has been much improved since we were there in 2008.

I just can't believe such a beautiful old hotel with Andalusian ceramics on the wall and 72 year old country chandeliers (place was founded in 42') is 500 pesos a night (40 bucks)? Breakfast is included, the beds are firm, the room is clean and oh' the mini fridge is stocked. What a deal!

We stayed at good old Hotel Salta 3 nights and wished it had lasted longer. Hotel Salta is charming and old fashion with nice rooms and great bathrooms. lots of hot water and very silent AC. Wifi at an OK speed. Breakfast is upper Argentina standard. Freindly english speaking staff at the reception. The best about this hotel is the location at the corner of the main plaza with the cathedral. Lots of nice retaurants. We would like to stay there again some day. Salta is a great city.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the fifth floor with view away from the plaza. It means no noise and better sleep.

I stayed here after a few hostels before, so of course there is a huge difference for the price. The rooms are bigger and cleaner,the sleep quality I got was exactly what I needed. And they spoke english and some french too, which was a pleasant surprise. I recommend the place, it's a very good hotel in Salta.

The rooms are very clean, modern and confortable. The atmosphere is clonial and staff are very friendly. When people ring reception from overseas the phone menu is also in English. Remember, that prices in Salta and the rest of Argentina are not negotiable like in some asian countries and prices are extremely reasonably for the tourists so DON'T haggle as that is rude. Very nice place to visit and a great experience. I recommend it.

Rooms are not great, the location is though.id say the value for the money is not there. The front desk was very helpful and the view off the back side of the hotel is great. But as I said the rooms are tired and a little dirty.
