“Depends what you are looking for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

I stayed here for two nights out of 13 that I spent in Salta. I was there during Holy Week and it was hard to find a place to stay as it is a popular time for Argentines to visit Salta. The little place I stayed in while I was studying Spanish had not been able to accommodate me when I first made reservations. If what you are looking for is an international level hotel that could be anywhere, this place is great. But if you are looking for a place with some local flavor, look elsewhere. I used the place as a break from a 4 month journey - time to get a massage, use the internet and generally disconnect from long term travel and for that it worked okay. I don't like that they charge for wifi or to use the spa, given the prices. My room was big and comfortable although there were some cracks in wall which could use attention. The breakfasts, included, were great for me - lots of fresh fruit and even one bread option that was whole grain. The pool area is lovely with a great view.

Room Tip: Higher up provides better views; also ask to be in middle of floor - I was on end which was quiet bu...

This is a nice hotel but not great by Sheraton standards. The common areas are excellent - great lobby and the pool area is spectacular. There is a fabulous view of the city from the pool area. Customer service is also of high quality. Housekeeping is not great - only fair. Room service was quick and efficient although the prices are quite high compared to what you pay in town. Breakfast had many options. The location is residential which means a quiet location. Even though it is ten minutes from the main plaza, the walk is quite pleasant. The air conditioning system was quite loud as there was only an on and off switch. If you have sensitive hearing, this could be a problem.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor. I stayed on the 2nd floor where the pool is located and I had a l...

If you are a "Firts Class" Traveler, your only choice to stay in Salta is at Sheraton. The gim is very good, the breakfast is complete, the rooms are large and quite. The pool is ok. The only negative point is the location...you need a car to go to down town or walk 10 minutes down hill.

Room Tip: any one, all are very goods

Stayed here for 3 nights. Overall, would have to say that this hotel has been our favourite in Argentina. Or perhaps because we fell in love with Salta. When we were there, it was very quiet, hardly saw other people. The views from the rooms overlooking the city and the mountains was just lovely. From the first impression on arriving at the hotel with its soft lighting and warm wooden floors leading up to the reception desk, being escorted up to our room on the Club Lounge floor, everything was just perfect. Wonderful staff, all spoke English well (much better then our Spanish!) Compared with the Sheraton at Iguazu this hotel wins hands down.

Stayed here for 6 nights.  A bit far from the town, up on a hill, in the middle of residences, 20 minute walk to the main square and really nothing in between.  Taxis are cheap so cheap!!!! About  AR 6-8  ($1.50-2) to the plaza!   well appointed and attentive staff.  Front desk is patient and helpful.  The Club Lounge has very limited hours...5-7pm for cocktails with limited snacks (limited mini-sandwiches and an array decadent deserts....wait staff for drinks, takes a long time for a glass of wine, but very pleasant with a great view).  But charge for all alcoholic drinks!!! And breakfast was slim, and with all the desserts from the night before...who wants a brownie or frosted cupcake for breakfast?  Needs improvement here, and such a waste of a great space in such limited time and needing better offerings. The regular breakfast downstairs is a better option, even with the walk. So with the charge for alcoholic drinks and very limited snacks, good for the view or space to hang but not much else.

Issues with wifi, which i will Assume from my experience, seems to be a South American thing....they always present ethernet cables to you and I kept trying to explain my iPad and blackberry don't use ethernet cables.  Nevertheless, they are quick to jump to help.

Hotel, on a hill, in a residential area,..all rooms are on one side...looking out to the City. Lovely, except when walking the long distance from one end of the floor to another.  Nice pool area: lounge chairs and patio chairs with food and bar outside and outdoor showers..verybmuch enjoyed the pool as did many others.  Beware on Wednesdays a happy hour, which means  dance music from the pool area until Midnight (and lots if kids enjoying the 2 for 1 specials).  As mentioned all rooms face the city AND pool.  So if aren't into the music and noise until Midnight, bring heavy duty ear plugs.  Selfishly, I can't believe the Lounge only goes until 7pm, but it's fine for bass music to seep through all hotel rooms until Midnight.

Rooms look out to the city and are well appointed: iPod clock radios,  plasma tv's, plush towels and comfy bed linen and great bathtubs.   Other then Wednesday nights, quiet and a good rest.  Suite was weird - 2 adjoining rooms, which the took out the bed in one and replaced with a sofa, very disjointed and didn't feel as comfortable. Service differed daily...sometimes towels refreshed, sometimes got the comp water, sometimes evening turn down service with a chocolate.    Funny a bottle of cab from the mini bar is AR 35 (just under $9) which is the same price as having one shirt (AR 33) washed!

Gym is small and limited but fine with great staff, like the rest of the hotel. Had a good message from estella (?)), the spa area looks unused, with the sauna not on and no one ever there.

Altro Tours in the lobby of the hotel to help arrange day tours, Rosa there is very helpful.  But really all tour prices are regulated, so everyone charges the same...and they all group the bookings, together so almost no matter who you book with, you get the same tour/service.  But having ALTRO in the lobby makes it convenient. And with the tours doing pick ups from every hotel, figure on 30-45 minutes each way for the pick ups. See if you an get Pablo as your guide, and not get Estella. I went to Cachi and Cafayate, the landscape is gorgeous, really a beautiful drive but are long days (about 11 hours from pick up to drop off) and most of that is driving.

If you have the time, get in a couple of hours Spanish lessons from Graciela of Idiomas_salta@hotmail.com.  Exceptional, done a block from the plaza and very reasonable rate.  

A casino in the hotel as well,  but I cant comment on it, as I never stepped foot in it.

Enjoyed the stay for the staff and attention and the room were quite nice but be aware that the hotel is a bit from town.
