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.

... liquorice road to suggest you are on our planet.Multitudes of colour hypnotise your eyes as you look left to right to left to right.
Walls of rock,sheer of face and coloured like Jupiter,a marble splendor of creams ,oranges and whites blend like molten metal on a twisting slope.Other walls seem to be feather sprayed in red hues of rust and as we turn a corner in the road we are confronted by a wedge of mountain that looks like a splintered axe head ...
... On asking the hostel worker told me I couldn't cook as I had already checked out. Now I wasn't having this. I had already bought all the food! This meant for the next hour I had to sneakily try to cook my lunch without getting caught. This involved sneaking to and from the kitchen when the worker had his back turned. The mission was successful and after much longer than it would have taken otherwise lunch was ready and it tasted all the lot ...
... wanted a little money - however I took this first hitch hike as symbolic so apologised and said I had, no money! (2 days later I saw the same taxi driver and have him 50p as the guilt was all consuming)! Samaipata was a type of Eden, a small pueblito surrounded by verdant mountains, yes please! A welcome relief after La Paz and the batteries went on recharge. A very tranquil campsite on a organic farm, days revolved around sitting in the plaza or reading by my tent or ...
In secret Santa style it had been decided earlier in the week that we would each choose someone's name out of a hat and pick out a Halloween costume for them. With a $5 budget for the whole outfit we quickly realised this was going to be harder than we had initially imagined. I had chosen Helen, my fellow tent mate, and soon settled on a chick costume, hand painted and made from foam all for a mere 35 Bolivianas. On the morning of Halloween we each pulled out our ...
... what a rush. I was ready to do it again. Well at least 90 feet was a good starting jump. I will have to see how high the next jump will be...
After jumping, the 3 of us sat in the sunshine on some stairs by the bridge to watch other jumpers, listen to the music and eat our sandwiches we had packed with us.
Sandwiches didnt quite fill us up, and we didnt have beer with us, so we went to a little restaurant beside the bridge, ordered some empanadas ...
