Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Truly wonderful quiet hotel with exceptionally helpful, friendly hotel staff. We really appreciated at how everyone went of their way to be helpful and to make us feel welcome. Staff provided information (in excellent English) about the area as soon as we arrived and all of the restaurants they recommended turned out to be exceptional. Rooms are simple, elegant and well-kept. There are several gorgeous antique pieces throughout the hotel as well as in each room that provide a wonderful period look to the place. The pool was clean & refreshing but it does not appear to have a filtration system – I’m not sure how they maintain it but I did notice it got a bit murky after one heavy rainstorm. It was fine the next day. The pool is small but you’ll find it great for cooling down after a day of hiking or shopping. Breakfast included great coffee, fresh croissants, toast & jam, yoghurt, cheese, ham and fresh squeezed juice. We stayed here for a full week - I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing and inviting atmosphere in Salta.

Dear Nancy, thank you for your review! :) We are very happy our Staff could be of help for you. Service is our distinctive trait, and we give our very best to make our Guests feel at home (That includes taking proper care of the building, its original furniture and also the decoration that allow us to live a glimpse of a Golden Era)

About the pool, we clean it physically every morning and we treat it chemically every night, so our Guests can enjoy it anytime. Of course, after a thunderstorm is understandable it could get a little dirty, but, as you properly noted, even in those unpredictable situations we quickly recover it so it´s available for continued use.

Thank you again for your kind words, and we hope you continue to travel and live this wonderful world!

Best regards,
Silvina Cornejo
Manager

This hotel is simply incredible ! Very well located, full of antique furnitures, clean, beautiful, with a pool and a bilingual staff that will do it utmost to make your stay a memorable one. Whatever you need, they will help you get it ! Lots of lovely boutiques in the area, 5 minutes walk from all penas on Paseo Balcarce without the noise of the street, 5 minutes walk the other way to the main Plaze (9 de Julio) and they can organize all tours you would like to take. Honestly, one of the most lovely and friendly hotel I have stayed at in South America ... and at a very reasonnable price !!!

Room Tip: I had the room by the pool and was a bit scared that it would get noisy, but as there are only 8 roo...

A lovely old house where we stayed in 3 different rooms over a week so got a good view of the place. The rooms are dark but this is a good escape from the heat. Air conditioning works well. Breakfast was very good. The pleasant little courtyard is good for a relaxing read and a cooling dip in the pool. Best of all though was the good service from the helpful staff and the location between the centre of town and Balacarce Street.

I stayed here in order to take the ‘Tren a las Nubes’ and to visit winery in Cafayate, because this hotel very close to the station.
In addition, this hotel was few blocks from the city center and there are many restaurants and Penas around the hotel . So, this hotel was very convenient to do everything.
The hotel building is a renovated old Spanish mansion , the corridor had been decorated beautifully by antique ones. The staffs were kind and helpful and provided me many information which I wanted.

What a beautiful house -- the courtyards, the tiles, the furniture transports you back to Spain. Just 8 rooms so hurry if you want to savor the charm of old-Salta (fast disappearing with ugly hotels like The American replacing them). Ideally located in el centro. The staff are very helpful too.

We stayed there for 2 nights, the room was clean, the decoration a bit dark, the window of our room opened to a little courtyard which was good (there was some noise coming from the corridor, but it was ok). The staff was very helpful with flight and restaurant bookings, the location was within walking distance to the main square and one block away is a very interesting restaurant with a show (La Panida). There is also parking available (free), which was very convenient. Breakfast was ok and there was a guest PC with free Internet. We thought that Salta ("The Beautiful") itself is a bit overrated, but it is a good starting point for excursions (e.g. Pumarnarca)

Dear Michael, thank you for your review! :) We are glad you found everything you needed in our Hotel. About the decoration, although all the rooms are different and with personality, all of them are set in bright, pastel colors, like you can see here http://hoteldelvirrey.com.ar/images/3.jpg or here http://hoteldelvirrey.com.ar/images/10.jpg and in the rest of our gallery http://hoteldelvirrey.com.ar/galeria.php and also right here in TripAdvisor.

Right like you express, our Hotel is located in an excellent position, near everything you might need, from the core of the city, to the Balcarce Corridor, the best Peñas and all the beauty of Salta.

We hope you continue to travel and to discover all kind of beautiful places in this wide world.

Best regards,
