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.

... spent doing a half day bike tour to the surrounding countryside of Salta. We got a lift by our guide, Nacho, to a small town called San Pedro. Here, we hopped on the bikes and endured a very hot, hilly ride in the countryside. We stopped off at a small brook to cool off and then proceeded to cycle back down the very steep hill we cycled up. I completely lost my confidence going down hill, I didn't enjoy the sensation of skidding down the gritty road. ...
... through when none of us could get out of bed, so we settled for a small walk around the town. We got the bus back to Salta in the afternoon to ensure that we could book our bus to San Pedro de Atacama tonight. George and I made use of our very last Pesos by each getting our last fat steak in Argentina, meanwhile Robbo spent his evening with a pot noodle back at the hostel which we were using as a base camp. Into the Chilean desert we ...
... is on. Would never happen in Canada but I liked this method of justice. Super entertaining. Carne. The steak is awesome around here. Empanadas too. Downs: Bad communication cost me a white water rafting trip. Darts. Shut er down. Salta had a holiday on Wednesday and everything was closed. Just walked around a deserted city. Strange. Nothing was open. Kinda a waste of a day. Reschedule. My scheduled bus trip on Thursday was cancelled due to a protest. That's an 18 hr ride shut down. ...
... we turn offers another perfect photo opportunity - and still we're never quite able to capture the reality.
Just a shame it's a bit too hot to get out of the car and a walk more - we take a scramble up the 'Devil's throat', admire an amphitheatre and a few other viewpoints, but this could make for hours of great hiking.
Arrive in town in time for a quick wine tasting and then some wine ice cream at Miranda's ...
... cable car – but of course, we're saving the pennies, so it was step after step for us. It wasn't too bad a walk (well we have done some pretty big hikes recently) still got a little out of breathe from the altitude, but the views were great from up there. There was loads going on as well. They even had a workout area, a spin class, restaurant, extreme bike tours and a whole bunch of other things. We just sat down, had an ice-cream and enjoyed the view.
That night we ...
