The Vieja Posada is housed in a beautiful 140 year old Finca that has been renovated with great attention to detail. The historic character and style of the building was conserved very well without being cheesy, it feels a bit as if you were traveling back in time.
All rooms are either set around on a pretty courtyard (with a lawn and many plants) or to an even prettier small garden with tiny pool. There area covered colonnades with chairs and tables in front of the rooms, so that you sit outside anytime. The rooms are simply but tastefully furnished. We had a spacious standard room with a very small bathroom, but that was absolutely ok for the price. There are also rooms with larger bathrooms (where the rooms are a little bit smaller), and very big rooms with aircon, which are more expensive. Room and bathroom were super clean and everything worked flawlessly. We found it very convenient not to have a TV in our room.
The hotel is located just 200 meters from the Plaza in a quiet side street. There is only breakfast in the hotel, but many restaurants are very close by. It has a gated parking, and a fast and very well-functioning WiFi. The owners are very nice and helpful and speak English.
We were very comfortable here and stayed much longer than planned, as we simply loved the athmosphere and the layout of the place. In the center of Cafayate the tourist action is centered mainly around the Plaza. As you move away from it, it gets pleasantly quiet and normal. Cafayate is also a good base to explore the surroundings.
