I cannot understand how this hotel merits so many five star ratings on TA. We arrived at 19.00 to the sound and smell of the stairs being vacuumed with an ancient machine. We were shown to a tiny double room (we had booked a twin), and all the three available twins we looked at were dark and dingy. Our chosen room was OK but we had to ask for plugs for the basin and bath, more coathangers and a key for the safe. Beds were comfortable. Room had a vaguely musty smell, perhaps from years of tobacco seeping intop the fabric coverings of the plywood wardrobe doors.
The strong points of the hotel are its central but quiet location, and the very attractive garden and swimming pool area, which unfortunately we were unable to enjoy as the weather in Salta was unusually cool and rainy for the time of year. Breakfast is pretty basic: muddy coffee, fresh fruit, the ubiquitous ham and sliced cheese squares, croissants and a vile sweet, pink, pouring yoghurt. Staff are polite and friendly, if a little lacking in knowledge (it took three people before we finally ascertained that there was no English-language news channel on the multi-channel TV).
