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.

... wine, and I have taste buds, so jobs a good'un in my eyes, and we were told it was a longish transfer but we would have stops on the way so it's not such a big deal. We got picked up in a nice minibus and started the journey and the bugger stopped every 15 minutes to show us some rocks, whilst driving through a mountain range, which we could see from the bus, while it was too hot to stay outside for long, and I wanted to try some wine!!

... leg of the journey to Corrientes.
We┤d heard good things about Argentinian bus travel and this one confirmed the rumours. There was lots of leg room and we were also given food on the journey (although we weren┤t plied with free alcohol which was hugely disappointing as that was the main reason we┤d got the bus in the first place. Oh ok, it┤s actually because flying was too expensive...). We had also managed to get ourselves seats right ...
... on her bum.
A few more rock visits and we were soon at the bodega that we were told we`d be shown around. Probably the shortest tour ever. One man just said to us, this is where the wine is made and these are some of the old instruments and machinery we used, go and have a look and then he walked off and left us for 5 minutes until we went to the tasting room. After the tour in Peru I was expecting a little bit more to be honest. The two ...
... the hostels we had stayed at but nothing. NIGHTMARE!! We spent about 3 hours triple checking everything, even searching the hire car ourselves as we didnt believe them. We immediately cancelled Tracy┬┤s 2 cards that she had with her, contacted the insurance company and called the UK embassy out-of-hours number as it was saturday evening. We were told that we would have to go back to Buenos Aires to apply in person for a replacement. We next went ...
