This is a very quaint hotel centrally located and walking distance to the square. A coffee shop on every corner, great restaurants close by. Light breakfasts serviced in dining room. Rooms are clean and cozy. Some staff are bilingual. I would highly recommend this hotel.

big, nicely decorated, quiet rooms, good service, friendly owner and great neighbourhood - probably the best deal in town – we couldn’t find any better standard and location for that price. Next time we come back to Salta we know where to stay.

Beautilly restored building, superbly maintained. Staff is professional and extremely helpful ( but not that warm, fuzzy, j.d. power rated fake customer service kind you find in the states ). The rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was lovely. When we needed to get out before breakfast for a tour, the desk clerk made coffee for us himself!... More

“We were in #2 but I think they are all similarly sized and excellent -- there aren't that many and they are all in a row leading from the reception to the backyard pool. The suite I think is in the front and may be different and perhaps with more noise.”
