We arrived into Salta via a 10-11 hr bus ride from San Pedro and were extremely happy to arrive at this beautiful well run hotel with a sweet courtyard garden with a pool.
The position of the hotel is a couple blocks up from the main bus terminal and is directly across from the cable car to take you to the top of Cerro San Bernardo. The walk into town is safe and only takes about 10-15mins. There are several shops nearby as well for waters, beers and snacks.
The hotel itself, although a little dated, is pretty and peaceful and perfectly fine for a one or two night stay. The only small let down is the breakfast comprising mainly sweet pastries, mediocre bread, jams, fruit and juices. Not the continental style breakfast we appreciate more.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful, even ordered us pizza for delivery.
If returning back to Salta, I think we'd definitely stay here again.

The one interesting part of the trip was a visit to the city/town of San Francisco,a bustling place with great monuments and lots of interesting people but to be totally honest I could not get much of a look as we were given 30 minutes in the place before we had to make our long way back to Salta city.
So I think you can tell that I have not been too kind about this particular excursion,a case methinks of trying to cram too much into one day,but ...
We spent today on a ranch. We started off with breakfast then saddled up and headed out for a two and half hour trek in the Argentinian countryside. It was beautiful! I ended up with quite a badly behaved horse. He ate when he wanted to, went where he wanted to and went at the speed he wanted to, despite my best efforts! We had the chance to trot and also ...
... for lunch we hit the road.
To start off we covered the area to the North of Salta. After the usual confusion that comes with trying to navigate out of an unknown city we eventually found ourselves on a thin windy road leading us around hills and through pretty country side. Not long into the cruise we came across a beautiful white horse, possibly descended from a unicorn. We took this as a good omen for the trip and so after ...
... enthusiastic curator. The English translations aren't actually in sensible enough English to be understood (a new career path for d? Wander the world improving translations in museums?) but it's a worthwhile visit nonetheless, and the woman is 'honoured' to have 'such important' people come visit. Maybe we didn't explain 'patent attorney' accurately enough.
Then... bus, 3.30pm. Adios Salta; Mendoza, we're on our way... See you ...
... exejutivo would allow. This involved Argentinian tomales, a strange roll of meat filled with little morsels, and goat, which was not as bad as we had expected but may not be a regular in the Griffin diet. We are still not bold enough to try llama, a huge delicacy both here in Salta and in Bolivia, our next stop.
That evening we said goodbye to the Irish girls, who were heading for Bolivia earlier than us, and met a huge group of Argentinians, who took us to a local ...
