Friendly hotel Balcon de la Plaza occupies a restored Spanish colonial residence in central Salta.

There are many converted, refurbished mansions in the colonial heart of Salta and Balcón de la Plaza is one of the most charming, offering a genuine personalised experience. It also has the advantage of being just half a block from the city's pleasing main square, its baroque cathedral, shops, banks and restaurants. The staff are consistently highly rated for their welcome and helpfulness (in our view, Salta is justifiably renowned for its friendly population).

The hotel décor maintains the atmosphere of the building's history, with tiled and wooden floors, cast iron furniture, a small fountain and antique knick-knacks. Some of the handful of guest rooms have beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. The hotel offers Wifi, parking and a laundry. A breakfast buffet is served but there is no restaurant (although there are plenty of options nearby).

What our clients say

  • This was our first trip to South America and most definitely will not be the last. And we will be travelling with yourselves again. It was an extremely varied trip and we enjoyed every bit . However we especially loved all the natural beauty and wonders of Patagonia and the Iguazú region .

  • What a fantastic country with genuinely friendly, happy people; it was a delight to meet so many.  Although we realise we haven't seen all  that the country has to offer, we felt we did get a real impression of  Argentina and loved it.

  • Not easy to pick out a highlight. It was a very varied trip as we had requested.  The natural scenery around Salta, Iguazu, the Lakes and all over Patagonia was amazing, helped by some very favourable weather. The top hotels - Patagonia Camp, Patios de Cafayate, Arakur were great; some of the lesser hotels surpassed their descriptions - Molinos, la Yegua Loca, Anslemo;...The Andean Crossing was fabulous: fantastic scenery which we saw in perfect conditions, with very easy transfers and helpful guides.
