We first visited Carpe Diem just to pick up our rental car, which was arranged by Silke, one of the hosts of this bed & breakfast accommodation in Salta. We got a very warm welcome with coffee and cake and a tour through this lovely colonial house, which is totally renovated by the owners.
After our road trip through Salta and Jujuy we returned to Carpe Diem for our last night in Argentina. It is located very close to the city center in a rather busy street. From the outside it just looks like one of these ordinary Argentinean adobe houses, but once you enter the house it is a real ‘boutique hotel’ as they call themselves. Communal rooms are nice decorated with antiques, artwork and crafts. At the back of the house is a (small) peaceful garden.
‘Of course’ we were welcomed again very friendly and Silke and Riccardo were very interested in our experiences and we talked a lot about our trip in northwest Argentina.
Our room had a window to a small patio (be aware none of the rooms has an exterior window) and was comfortable, spacious, very clean, had a large bathroom and even an own flat screen computer with free internet access. Bedrooms are far away from the street and are absolutely quiet.
Breakfast is in style of this B&B, which means it is homemade with freshly baked bread, rolls, cake, fresh juice, several teas, yoghurt and fruit, nicely set on our table and served like in the old days. To be honest sometimes it was just too luxurious and we felt a little bit uncomfortable.
Just before leaving - ‘of course’ Silke arranged an exact in time remis - we got some small presents, which will remind us for ever of our ‘Carpe Diem stay’.
Unique Quality: Silke, Ricardo and their staff offer great service and are very friendly and helpful.
Beautiful house with a spacious and clean room.
Silke arranged a very interesting (affordable) rental car for us; with pick up and drop off at the B&B.
Directions: Located between the main square (Plaza 9 de Julio), the bus station and the cable railway to the San Bernardo Hill (all a couple of blocks away).
