If you’re heading to Salta in the north of Argentina, you can’t go wrong with a booking at one of these boutique hotels – bookable on Culture Trip.

Although its streets and buildings resemble those of southern Spanish towns, Salta has its own blend of indigenous and non-indigenous culture – more so than some of the larger cities in Argentina, such as Córdoba and Buenos Aires. These boutique hotels in Salta reflect this mix, making the most of the colonial architecture the provincial capital is known for, as well as the works of its local artists. Whether you want to be right in the action on Plaza 9 de Julio or in the academic, suburban 20 de Febrero district, here are the best boutique hotels in Salta.

This modern hotel towers over Salta, but nods to tradition with its local furnishings and the artworks in its understated rooms. Suites add sitting areas. After a busy day ticking the many sights of Salta off your list, head to the in-house health club for a few laps in the indoor heated pool or a steam in the sauna. There’s also a piano bar. With the palm tree-lined Plaza 9 de Julio a five-minute walk away, you’re well placed to visit major sights such as the Museo de Arqueología de Alta Montaña, notable for housing the mummified Inca children discovered by scientists in 1999 at the Llullaillaco volcano.
