TravelPod Member ReviewsPetit Hotel Salta
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.

... car that I began to feel a bit nervous. The fact that the jump was over water added comfort and at 45m, it wasn't the highest bungee in the world. While Claire acted as camera woman as she had previous experience of a jump, the rest of us signed our lives away on a disclaimer and I was forth up.

... more like a country estate! It was set in incredible grounds overlooking the vineyard and mountains and we felt like we were in the film 'Scarface' - having lunch at some ridiculously rich drug baron's home in Colombia! He has 5 members of staff working for him in the house but apparently only goes there a couple of times a year so we had the place to ourselves. Lunch was delicious - empanadas, followed by ...
... helpful guy came over, said he spoke a bit of English and tried to help us. His name was Kevin and he told us he´s a secondary school student from Florida, Buenos Aires. Kevin then spent the best part of an hour with us as we tried emailing the tickets to various people behind the desk, translating for us the whole time. Finally, with about 15 minutes to go before our bus was due to depart, we managed to print them. Success! Kevin, we thank ...
... day with friends! I was practically giddy at this point and chatted with the hungover Kiwis until I'm sure they were tired of me! Not surprisingly I was feeling much, much differently than I had just two days before. I was now at only 4,000 feet and felt like a new person. The altitude had been almost too much for my body to handle. At the dinner the previous night, Josefina had informed me that I could have taken plain ibuprofen for altitude sickness. ...
