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.

... town we have been too.. I don't quite get it.. Went to check out the markets, finding some coka leaves which we purchased and had to try, tastes like a very strong tea , not the most enjoyable flavour. Yesterday we walked past some clay tennis courts so decided we would try go have a game. Once finding them again we were not aloud to play as we had no rackets or balls. However we convinced the receptionist to let us go have a look inside ( these were quite steezy ...
... Joyce knew a mechanic from one of the Dutch truck teams, so we meet up with him and got some VIP treatment in the Fernet Branca tent! The best things in life are free! Unfortunately the day was a bit of a wash out, so fairly similar to going to a rally back home! Around 10pm we went to a great restaurant called La Casona del Molino for and an enormous steak straight off the parrilla washed down with some Malbec, starting to get into the swing ...
... excited about the place. Finally somewhere developed and clean with a bubbling atmosphere. We walked to the main plaza and saw the big, pink cathedral. BUT - Easter weekend then slapped us in the face. After consulting with an Aussie in the street and the tourist office, there were no beds in town with Argentinian families being shipped out to local houses. Made the executive decision to get on the last 23 hour bus to Buenos ...
... Kory and I walked around the museum with morbid fascination and viewed the little 6 year old girl with disbelief at how well she had been preserved. She had been sacrificed around 800 years previously but still looked like a little girl sitting behind the glass display case. She was displayed in the same position that they had found her in, sitting, hugging her knees, which were bent up to her chest. She was dressed and covered in an elaborately woven blanket and her ...
... any experience with my general sense of direction, this task would normally be delegated to someone else!!! But alas the rest of the options in our car were worse!!! So I started with the general signs, for Salta, all going according to plan and then hoped that something would look familiar or that the very bad map I had would eventually come in handy! A split in the road....airport or centre.... So of course I went centre (it was left, whenever i'm lost ...
