This is a beautiful, serene, country house turned hotel with friendly staff, nice grounds and good food. Completely authentic. It truly captures the spirit of Northern Argentina and the gauchos. I would love to go back.
We had two tranquil nights at this lovely hotel. Our room in the main house had a big terrace and was very comfortable with a nice shower. The grounds are impressive with lots of birdlife to watch. We enjoyed a relaxing day by the pool with a few drinks, shame the weather was not at its best! The service in the restaurant was very attentive and we enjoyed our dinner both nights with some extras from the BBQ chef the first night. An excellent breakfast is provided. Location is close to the airport 10 minutes away.
wonderful, we were very happy with the restaurant, and the rooms in the hotel.We had the two superior rooms upstairs, both with a balcony. They are really nice. And also a suite in a side-house. Which is bigger but you have to walk more. The only thing we were struggling with was the room temperature, as the blankets were far too heavy, we had to put the airco warmer. Not a major issue. Not good is the WIFi, it is very slow. Fine for holidays a disaster for work
A wonderful restaurant with a very average hotel attached. The food is very good and so is the service in the restaurant, but sadly it’s a very different story once you’re back in the hotel. Rooms are tiny and service is very mediocre. The property is nice, but nothing too exciting either. Come for lunch or dinner and stay somewhere else - unless of course they lower the night rates, which are astronomical for what they offer. Toiletries are gorgeous tho :)
When you say Relais & Chateaux, you say the best. In my opinion, they are the most important certification organisation in hotels and restaurants. This hotel is a clear example. Nothing has lost its essence. You will find the truth about a traditional estancia of Argentina, combined with extreme comfort, hospitality, excellent food and wines. The best Salta has got to offer. Considering that our country is not going through the best of times lately, and the cities reflect the economical crisis clearly, this is the best option to know the splendour of a province that used to be part of the most important colonial empire. The gentleness of the staff is incomparable. This is a place to scape of stress, chill by the heated pool, and enjoy the beauty of NOA. The way they handled covid pandemia, made us feel very safe and cared.…
What a charming and beautiful boutique hotel, moments from Salta airport, but no sign of aircraft noise at all. Wonderful old farm converted. Lovely whitewashed rooms. Best of all incredible food!! Totally delicious. And as a veggie I had plenty of amazing tasty options. Wine too excellent. Would highly recommend on way in or out of Salta for a night. Staff very friendly and helpful. Late check out no problem at all.
We stayed here for 3 nights and we were upgraded to a lovely suite in the grounds. The pool area is very relaxing and there are plenty of outside and indoor seating areas to enjoy the calm ambiance of the hotel. The restaurant creates food to a very high standard for their evening meals and the night we dined there a trio of musicians entertained us. Very special but not cheap for Argentina. Breakfasts are good but if you are on an early start before 7 30 don’t expect anything other than toast to be offered.
We had a wonderful night's stay at the House of Jasmines which was an easy drive from the airport. Our charming room overlooked the countryside and was named after the Nina del Raya, on show in the Salta museum. We opted for the Asado set menu, including wine tasting, which was excellent and we were entertained by local dancers. An awesome start to our week's self-drive in the area.
We did not stay here but booked for the dinner on Xmas eve.. Wow what a great setting with views of the mountains, country air, eagle flying overhead, fire flies. Glad we arrived in daylight to soak yo the setting and sat outside to have cocktails before the sumptuous meal. A 3 piece band played in the background and the service was superb. A bit pricey but was really worth it the treat.
We have just spent 4 nights at this hotel and we were very disappointed. The place is lacking in charm and needs a lot of attention. We had a room in the main building which had an antiquated bathroom. The toilet had a strange integral bidet fitting of a type last seen by my husband 60 years ago in France. There was a plastic shower curtain and the white towels were grey and frayed. The room was small but had a large terrace which could have been lovely. However all it had was a small iron table and two chairs and a line of small pots full of dead plants. We also stayed in one of the rooms in the grounds. This was larger with a normal toilet but the wardrobes were plywood with a curtain in place of a door and the armchairs looked in need of a clean. The patio had the same small iron table and a couple of pots with weeds in. The pool water was not only dirty but had weeds growing in it. The restaurant was nice,we had some good food and the staff were charming. I appreciate that they want a rustic character to the property but this was not shabby chic, just shabby. Such a shame because it could have been lovely.…
