Hosteria del Altura el Peñon is a small, agreeable hotel in a remote corner of desert in Argentina's high altitude Andean Puna.

This friendly, community-owned property is the closest the remote salty wilderness of Argentina’s northwest Andes (Puna) gets to rustic-chic. It is a comfortable, homely and small adobe-brick inn just five minutes’ walk from the plaza in the quiet rural village of El Peñon.  It has just a handful of spacious guest rooms, well-heated by unusual exterior wood burning stoves. The dining room has a warm and welcoming feel with native textiles hanging from adobe walls and an open fire with a couple of relaxing armchairs.

Breakfast is continental-style homemade biscuits and pastries, and the hotel serves simple dinners. There’s a weak wifi signal in the dining room – but don’t rely on a connection.

Our Expert's Opinion

After several days driving across the Puna, this cosy little inn felt like a spot of luxury. From here, we explored a giant pumice field and a lake full of flamingos, and came back to a tasty dinner, a convivial atmosphere, and a good night's sleep.
