We chose Tilcara as a central base for our touring around the Northwest of Argentina. We had picked up our rental car at Salta airport having flown in from Iguazu. The drive to Tilcara was very easy along a good highway, but turning off into Tilcara’s stone and dusty roads was quite a contrast.
The Las Terrazas hotel is on a slightly elevated part of the town and, as the name implies, is laid out with the rooms on two terraces above the entrance. It has a lovely architecture with natural stone blending into the surrounding area, and a little stream running through the small garden and the reception area. We didn’t use the outdoor pool, as we were our touring most of the time. It is small, not intended for swimming laps, but suitable for a cooling dip on a hot day.
Our room was on the higher terrace and the excellent views of the colourful mountains more than compensated for the few extra steps to be climbed. The room itself was very spacious but a bit sparse on furnishing. There was only a small wardrobe and no drawers. However this didn’t matter too much as we were only staying a few nights.
The breakfast was tasty and adequate. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful, and had good English.
We would definitely consider staying in Las Terrazas if we are ever in Tilcara again.
