Lonely Planet review
In a distant past - think BC - this might have been Salta's finest hotel, with fine public rooms and an ultracentral address. It's overpriced and needs a major refit now, but still has some character and a plazaside location. Make sure you pay extra (so-called 'superior' rooms) for street views; plaza views ('suites') cost more.
Our independent authors have visited Colonial and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Salta.
