We stayed here for two nights in December 2012, and found the accommodation to be very comfortable - the bedroom and bathroom were both a good size with everything you would need, and the common areas were nicely decorated with lots of fun ornaments and felt cactuses and the like!
The pool is open 24 hours and claimed to be heated, but it was rather cold when we used it. The service wasn't overly warm (could just have been the language barrier though), but they were very helpful when you needed anything, and even organised a hire car to be delivered to the hotel for us.
The location wont be to everyone's taste - while it is very quiet, it is a fair walk from the main tourist areas and dining area, so if you dont like a walk to earn your dinner or taking cabs, you might want to look nearer the centre - that said, it didnt bother us as we like to walk around.
Breakfast is served in a very nice room that overlooks the city - the selection of food didn't seem overly extensive to us, but was fairly consistent with other buffets we saw in Argentina, and they do make eggs and waffles on request.
If we found ourselves in Salta again, we would return.
