This old house has been restored with excellent taste and is one of the best places to stay in Cafayate. Close to the central square, but in a quiet corner of the town. The courtyard is quiet with plenty of flowers.

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... More

Nice and rustic B&BS. Very near the plaza and the bedrooms are spacious, clean and characteristic. The only draw back was the tiny shower. It wasn't easy taking a shower in a half a meter square shower. But the owner or manager was By helpful and friendly.

Very pleasant posada. Nice soundings. However, avoid room no 1 – two singles, which reminded me of a backpacker’s hostel. It’s a dark room and at the time of my visit full of mosquitos! I had to ask to change my room for much nicer double room. I wish I had more time to chill out in their garden and... More

Wow, this is such a beautiful place! Very nice old buildings, beautiful gardens, a small pool, clean and spacious rooms, great breakfast and welcoming staff. I can't think of anything negative about this place. Maybe the price, but you get a lot of value for your money.

We stayed for three nights at this charming and characterful hotel. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was basic but comfortable and clean. Breakfast is served a two minute walk away at another location - a beautifully refurbished building. The hotel is located near to the centre of town and has off road parking. We had a pleasant stay... More

We stayed for two nights in Cafayate, a wonderful town. The Vieja Posada had the most beautiful room. Textures made for an artistic experience; a rock wall, exposed adobe, the traditional cane ceiling with a cane and wood "canopy", thick wood counter with elevated ceramic bowl sink, and more. The courtyard was tranquil and great for sitting around, and it... More
