“Beautiful, peaceful, hospitable.”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Situated a five minutes stroll from the square in Tilcara and with spectacular views of the mountains. Bathed in sunlight. With your own personal adobe complete with own patio area and furniture even a wood stove if required in winter. The place is beautifully designed and decorated, a perfect use of local colours textiles and materials. All mod cons such as WiFi and a swimming pool The type of place that is elegant yet low key, where you relax as soon as you arrive. A very special place.

Driving into Tilcara and up the cobbled or washed out streets one would not expect to find this lovely place on the hill but lo and behold - with a warm pool (unusual for AR as ice cold is the norm) and grass grounds - this is a gem of a place to stay.
The rooms are spread about the grounds, the air keeps the rooms pretty cool and the breakfast is typical fair done excellent. I would recommend this place to everyone.
The staff is excellent and very helpful, the food (snacks available all day) is very good and the accommodations are very comfortable. There is no AC but mountain winds and thick walls made for cool nights. Dogs barking and early morning roosters could be a challenge but the rooms stay dark - with earplugs in you would miss a good breakfast.
I was sad to have to leave.

Room Tip: All rooms seem similar in location to rural streets and proximity to pool.

Posada de Luz was our favourite of the seven places we stayed during our recent trip to Argentina. The adobe style hotel is located a 5 minute walk about the heart of Tilcara, and sits within it own large walled grounds / gardens which is a real boon, as it makes it quiter than the majority of accommodation. Dogs barking is an issue all across Argentina in the morning particularly, so I'd advise everyone going anywhere in Argentina on holiday to have a good supply of ear-plugs.

The hotel does no have air-con, but the split-level room design is clever to achieve natural cross ventilation and the stone / concrete floors keep the rooms and a good temperature. Breakfast is lovely, reception staff very helpful. The real attraction is the pool. Its not massive - maybe 7.5 metres by 3, but it is such a lovely thing after a day's sight-seeing to be able to have a dip with such a wonderful panorama.

A great place to stay in Tilcara – or indeed in Argentina.

Very polite and helpful on check-in, lovely room and private patio for the money, great garden and very good quality breakfast. The hotel also made available plenty of information about its services and the local area.

Definitely recommend.

Luz has created a wonderful place to stay. Everything from the majestic grandeur of the surrounding mountains, the refreshing pool and gardens, the excellent breakfast, the service and lots of small touches were spot on.

We were travelling with our infant son. We really appreciated being provided with a cot (with lovely bedding) in our room and a high chair at breakfast. It was also sensational for our son to have the run of expansive gardens, the pool (although it was not warm enough to tempt him to get in) and even a playground!

The room itself was excellent. Divided into two spaces (bed and separate, elevated sitting area), cosy (with heating and option of proper fire - with the fire built and ready to be lit), well appointed with luxurious bed and bedlinen. What made it even better was the way it had french doors opening onto a semi-private sitting area in the garden and a gorgeous view down the valley. We enjoyed having their very tasty picada delivered and picking at it there over lunch.

All this for a price that doesn't usually get anywhere near this level of value.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Posada de Luz is in Tilcara, in the heart of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, which was declared Natural and Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. It was categorized with three stars by the Tourism Department of the Province of Jujuy, and it has 6 double rooms, triple rooms and a quadruple one. Its owner, Luz Manfredi, knew the area in 1985, while on a trip to Cuzco, and since then she was in love with the landscape and the culture of the people. The project to build an inn in the “quebradeña way”, i.e. with stone foundations, adobe walls and mud cake and cane roofs grew through the years, and it took shape in January 2004 with the opening of the Posada de Luz with its 6 rooms whose main charm are the terraces from where you get a panoramic view of the hills around Tilcara. Since then we have received in the Posada people from all corners of Argentina and the world, many of whom are now great friends of ours. ... more   less
