La Candela is a welcoming little hotel with a lovely garden close to the colonial centre of Salta. 

Colonial Salta is rich with colonial mansions. Once family residences, many of which - like this one - have now been converted into small and friendly hotels. The mid-range property has a great location close to the historical centre, but is a peaceful oasis with a charming palm-shaded garden embellished with lawns and pretty pot plants set around a terrace framing an outdoor pool.

Guest rooms are bright, cheerful and a bit retro, with a simple style which nods both to colonial Spanish elegance and a provincial guest house. However, they are well equipped with modern facilities. The suites have Jacuzzi bathtubs and junior suites feature both living room and balcony. Other facilities include a cosy sitting room, breakfast room, snack bar and TV lounge. It is popular among European visitors and families are welcome.
