Alejandro I Hotel
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.
