“Highly recommendable!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

From start to finish we enjoyed the warm and cheerful personalities of Alex & Rijkje in Casa Hernandez. They make you feel at home, give you a lot of helpful advice, also for the rest of your trip. Breakfast is delious and their house is just perfect! Beautifully decorated, clean and a huge garden to enjoy the peacefulness or asado's with other guests! So yes, go to this lovely place, you will not regret and for sure love to book some extra nights :)

We first stayed at Casa Hernandez in 2008 not long after it first opened. We had been travelling for almost a year and it was great to stay in a place that was a home from home. At the time, we were considering setting up a B&B ourselves and were searching for a suitable property. I remember thinking at the time that Casa Hernandez was the sort of place we would aspire to run.

Alexa and Reijke welcomed us like long lost friends and once again we had a fantastic stay. These guys know how to run a B&B as it should be run and if anything, Casa Hernandez was even better the second time around. They are both so helpful to anyone staying and are mines of information on what to do, where to go etc.

Exceptional, value, great hosts, superb, well appointed rooms and a great location in San Lorenzo with easy access to Salta city. Since our last visit there have been a number of really good restaurants that have opened, making. San Lorenzo quite a foodie centre.

Hopefully it will not be another 5 years until we return again!

Room Tip: I think we have now stayed in all the rooms and all are good so it would be hard to choose a favouri...

We had 8 days in this magic spot, from the time we arrived, with Alex meeting us at the Airport, till 8 days latter putting us back on the Plane, We had an absolute ball. Alex & Rijkje were perfect hosts, down to earth genuine people. After a long day touring the mountians, it was pleasure to arrive back home and enjoy a Social Sip or 2 with Alex and his sense of humour, Rijkje with her
sophistication, a great way to finish the day. Everything from the location, rooms,food all spot on.
Casa Hernandez, Perfect, nothing more to be said!!!

It's what you expect from a good B&B, but with that extra personal touch that makes it more than just your average place to stay. For example: Alex and Rijkje celibrated the coming of spring with their guests, by buying some drinks and having a lovely chat in the garden. If you're visiting Salta and its surroundings, make this your home base (in more ways one). You'll find everything you need (accomodation, information) and more...

We loved our stay at Casa Hernandez. Alex and Rejkje are such caring hosts, very personable and so helpful in getting us familiar with the area and suggesting adventures for our stay, as well as places to eat, how to get around - basically everything.

The house is nestled in the small town of San Lorenzo which is about a 20-30 min. bus ride into Salta. My recommendation is to take the bus into Salta, as it's a very short walk from Casa Hernandez to the bus stop and it's inexpensive. Alex and Rejkje will provide you with a bus card to make it even easier. You can even arrange for Alex to pick you up at the airport - that's what we did, and it was so easy. The drive was about 20-30 minutes from the airport and it was a wonderful time spent talking with Alex - a very friendly and happy sort of fellow.

There's a pool for swimming, but since we were there in winter it was a little cool. The backyard garden area is nice and peaceful with plenty of spots for sitting. We stayed in the Deluxe room and were able to simply walk out to the back garden from our room. All of the rooms (I believe there are three total in the main house) are very nicely furnished with handmade wooden pieces made locally, and everything was very clean. The rooms are cleaned everyday. Breakfast is served until 10 in the morning and it's a nice time to talk with other guests and exchange stories of travel.

Casa Hernandez also is a great place to stay if you plan on taking day trips to a few of the surrounding cities. We rented a car and drove up into the mountains to the five finger lakes one day, and then to Cafayate another, and it felt really comfortable coming back to Casa Hernandez after a long day of driving - tranquil - an ideal spot for one person or a couple. I can't wait to return!



San Lorenzo is a cozy little spot, very quiet with little traffic, lots of walking, plenty of places to eat that are very nice, even to a vegetarian.

Room Tip: On our first night we stayed in the Comfort room with two beds, a nicely sized bathroom with a showe...

Important: it is not possible to book a room at Casa Hernandez via one of the booking sites. You can find them at www.lacasahernandez.com.ar.

Alex & Rykje were born to run a guesthouse! They are so friendly and helpful, you really feel welcome from the moment you enter the casa. They know a lot of good restaurants and activities in the area and are always happy to help you with sorting things out.

The rooms are amazing, it is really like European standards in a typical Argentinian village.

Some reasons to go here:
* The beds are perfect! Great boxsprings for a good night of sleep;
* Breakfast is amazing! They serve home-baked bread, the best we have had in South America;
* The village of San Lorenzo is only about 15 minutes away from Salta by bus (ask Rykje or Alex for a bus card, so you don't have to worry about coins);
* Prices are extremely reasonable, I would pay double for this quality;
* They also offer airport transfers at a good price;
* The Deluxe-room has a sweet little garden in the bathroom, nice view from the bath :-).

Alex and Rykje, thanks again for your excellent service! We really had a great time in Casa Hernandez!

Room Tip: Just go for the Deluxe room with a private bathroom with bath and doors to the garden.

The reviews don't lie - this is a wonderful place to stay. We concluded our honeymoon here and it felt more like being with friends than in a stuffy hotel. Alex and Rijkje were great hosts and charming with their stories and information. The B&B is a short distance from Salta (15-20 mins by bus) but the bus is easy to use (unless it makes a funny turn on the way back and you aren't paying attention ... it was easy to return back to the house though! :) There are a number of nice eateries in San Lorenzo as well, including the pizza place 50 meters from the hotel - yum! Fantastic B&B, definitely worth a return visit!
