“A wonderful little place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

We stayed her twice in December 2013 for a total of 3 nights. The rooms are comfortable and clean with good AC, the hotel decor is lovely with lots of character, the beds are excellent and the bathrooms well-appointed. The hotel is well-located for touring Salta and eating out. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is good. They have secure parking. It is not too far to walk to the street with the car rentals. Excellent value for money. The only down side is the pool is small with stagnant water, you would not use it. However, we used the patio for cocktail hour.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back. The one room on the street would probably be noisy. All rooms have a w...

Dear Guest, thank you for your review! We are very happy you enjoyed our Hotel all the times you stayed with us, and your kind words about our resources and services. About the pool, I think "stagnant" is a little too far to describe the pool water. The water is clean and perfectly kept, it just happens that sometimes it receives a lot of flying leaves on windy days, which are promptly removed when detected. I hope you continue to travel and to acquire new and good experiences! :)

We arrived in Salta after a delayed flight from Barriloche. What a delight to arrive at the Hotel del Virrey. The reception people one and all were so incredibly helpful and surprising for Argentina spoke English. They arranged our tours for usand nothing was too difficult. The room was spacious and comfortable. There are only 8 rooms and all are great. There is a pool at the rear of the hotel. As for position a short 5-10 minute walk brings you to the centre of town. Breakfast was included and was plentiful. The rate was great. We had nothing but praise for this boutique hotel.

Everything about this small hotel was good. The staff could not have been more helpful. We ate at the two restaurants they recommended and had beautiful meals both nights. The hotel is in a good position and is a lovely building. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

Nice, neat and quiet place in the center of Salta.
Very nice hosts. Good in English.
Swimming pool is to small for swimming. Better to cool down.
Breakfast is not very special. Our specious room, located in the front of the building, was.

Stayed an extra night in salta so moved here for last night. Lovely little place with only 8 rooms I think. We got it quite cheap €50 for the night not sure what normal price is. Staff very good, really helpful and always smiling. Room was nicely decorated great shower and comfy bed. Breakfast was standard and location for restaurants and bars perfect.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review! Right like you say, our Hotel has only eight rooms, so we can take good care of our Guests, fulfilling all of their needs, advising, talking, and also listening to their adventures in our beautiful land! All of our staff know how to do their work and they are happy when they can help, even in the slightest details. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and you had a great time in our Hotel. That is our biggest reward.

A lovely hotel. So friendly and helpful. English well spoken.
It is a beautiful building near the main square - but quiet. Parking was in same street and secure.
All the staff made us feel welcome.
A little splash pool - but a nice reading in the evening area.

Room Tip: Hard to say as we had 2 different rooms for 2 visits, and both were good.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review! We are happy our Staff assisted you properly. They are highly trained and they live to serve. And their good service is in key with the Hotel´s unique benefits that you mention: It is excellently located, near the center of the city but away from the noise and rush, so you can enjoy days of peace and nights of silence and relax in our facilities; private parking, so you don´t worry about the safety and keeping of your car, and the pool, that is a little familiar open pool, but more than enough for the people that our eight rooms can hold.

We thank you again for your kind words, and we hope you continue to learn, to travel and to joy all of what this world has to be discovered!

The Hotel del Virrey is on a side street only a few blocks from Plaza 9 de Julio. We had a nice large room with a high ceiling on the ground floor. The people at the front desk spoke English and were very nice and helpful. We needed to get our car washed and they directed us to a place only a few blocks away. The breakfast buffet was very adequate and there was free parking behind the hotel.

Dear Daryl, thank you for your review! Indeed, our Hotel is positioned at an unbeatable location, only four blocks away from the main square, and near the Balcarce Corridor and the best peñas. In few words, near everything important in Salta. We are happy our Receptionists assisted you in whatever you could need. We work only with the most helpful staff and we strive to serve our Guests in all of their necessities. Like you expressed, the parking is free of charge, as the WiFi Internet, and the pool. Thanks again for your words, and we hope you continue to add good memories to your backpack trip after trip :)
