We booked several nights at 100€ and were expecting a nice hotel. The rooms were dirty, we found dead cockroaches under the bed. There was no water at all, we had to buy bottled water to brush our teeth. Plumbing problems waking us up in the middle of the night. The personal is lost, they are inexperienced, their answer to everything is calling the owner who never picks up. Breakfast is disgusting. Old bread so hard. All the guests were making fun of that. Most tables were complaining about the dirtyness of their rooms and the terrible breakfast. Besides they charge you extra things on the invoice when they promise you will get a discount because you could shower or sleep. No wonder it is ranked as one of the worst in the city. Please avoid!!!

Can't count the ways this hotel was terrible - hotel was locked and empty when we arrived in the middle of the day, by chance caught sight of reception/cleaning lady by chance after knocking and waiting outside for 15 mins in 40 degree heat. Rooms were super overpriced and hotel manager was a rude money grabbing guy who over charged us based on rate he had originally given, so watch out. The reception/ dining room isn't cleaned in the morning when guests finish breakfast so it sits there dirty for hours until the two women running the show decide they have had enough of chatting and playing on their phones in the kitchen, avoiding contact with guests. There is no dinner or lunch served so nothing as its described on the website or trip adviser site. Rooms are decent but bathroom amenities are more like a hostel and not up to scratch for insane price you pay - bathroom light didn't work, toilet seat broken, not particularly clean. All in all, avoid at all costs. Stayed in Posada con Los Angeles as well in Tilcara and was 1000 times better and cheaper too.

Dear Eplmiu. We were closed in December. You indicated advisor who stayed with us in December? The manager never withdraw money against passengers and usually does not discuss prices with them. In January so far we have had a great season and we have received many people in our beautiful hotel. We've only had a complaint with a passenger who was accompanied by a foreigner. They complained about the price and the variation in the dollar exchange rate with local currency. Prices are clear and our customers have many ways of booking; the cheapest always with us. This passenger was extremely rude to our staff and we almost had to call the police because of his attitude. Threatened our staff with making a bad review. Many people come to Tilcara and think that everything must be practically free, and showing a dollar bill was supposed to deliver it. Jujuy and Argentina have a SERIOUS AND PRODUCTIVE tourism, there is no place for these people here. Our property was a pioneer in the hospitality of tilcara, we are a colonial house with history and tradition in the village. We pay attention to his critique and speak with staff. For breakfast we have a gentleman and a lady, not two ladies. We review the bathrooms and lights. Thank you for your review. Regards

.As soon as we walked into the hotel the front desk lady was chatting online in her facebook page. Didn´t even look at us! She handed out a pen and a piece of paper to write down our names and the license plate of our vehicle. The room We stayed was supposed to be the "top suite" hmmmm.....no towels, no vanities, bed wasn´t made the trash can was full of garbage The tub had loose hairs all over...... After our complaint the same girl from front desk came up with towels and ready to clean the room..... The hotel was empty (Now you know why) The complimentary breakfast was terrible, old pastry, cold coffee, dirty dishes all over the restaurant area and the same girl could give a damn about it! She kept looking her facebook page

I think this place might have new owners from the last reviews, who are charging the old prices but running it like a hostel. The building is nice, but the rooms feel a little scruffy and it is hugely overpriced. The whole place needs a good clean and the reception toilets were either used as store cupboards or hadn't had their bins changed for at least a week (in a country where toilet paper is put in the bin). We arrived and waited 20 mins in the empty reception, to then be told they didn't have our reservation, but they grudgingly let us stay - which we needed as other places in town were full. (They said they had wanted to keep the place empty as they were having a large group the next day). They charged us the whopping USD138 up front and gave us a large and spacious room upstairs at the back (which was quiet and comfortable but a little past its best, feeling like a hostel dorm not a luxury hotel). The lady at the front desk refused to book a restaurant for us that night, telling us we should do it ourselves. I don't think the hotel offers food nights anymore - the large open plan kitchen area off reception seemed to be used by the staff to sit in and avoid talking to guests. But it is close to several nice bars and restaurants.

Very pleasant small hotel about 10 minutes walk from the square in tilcara. There is a small lounge area with to and wifi. The hotel serves breakfast but not other food. Rooms were small but clean and comfortable, they moved furniture in ours to make a double instead of a twin, very helpful

I feel really let down by some of the other reviews on this one. We just wanted something convenient to town as it was just an overnight stop over. On reading the reviews I was led to believe that the location was a short walk into town; just 100 meters, I think one review stated. We were to find out that this is far from the truth. It is actually several blocks up a steep hill. Ok if you’re driving, but we arrived by bus, and needed a cab to get us there, and into town the following morning. The common areas of the hotel are quite nice (see my photos), but the room itself was basic. Just a bed, a small table and chair, and a couch that could double as a second bed. No aircon (just an oil heater), no fan, a small window facing the courtyard, no phone, no TV. The bathroom was OK, except that the shower splashed onto the floor (the glass screen was inadequate) and the water took about three minutes to warm up. Worst of all, the water never really got hot. Oh yes, and the toilet paper was the cheap ultra-thin variety that falls apart in your hand. I would find these downsides perfectly acceptable for a cheap hotel, but I was paying 760 pesos, which is over US$100. For this kind of money I expect more. Somebody came in off the street in the morning inquiring about a room, and they were quoted 680 pesos. It appears that it’s cheaper to walk in off the street than it is to book from one of the booking agents. I booked the room with Bookings.com. Finally, we found the staff here a bit stand offish, and not particularly friendly or welcoming when we first arrived or at breakfast, but that’s not really unusual in Argentina.

Tilcara es un pueblo de montaña, sus calles son empinadas por naturaleza. Estamos a 2 cuadras del centro. La terminal de bus esta a 3 cuadras, el mapa de Booking le muestra al viajero su ubicación, puede caminar o venir en taxi a preferencia del viajero. El hotel es una típica casa de pueblo, no ofrecemos aire acondicionado ni ventilador, las ventanas son como es propio del lugar puesto que es una casa reciclada. El agua tarda un par de minutos en calentarse por la distancia a los termotanques. Agradecemos su observacion, el papel higienico fue reemplazado acorde a su comentario. Tenemos 2 tipos de habitaciones, el viajero eligio la mas economica, su tarifa es de 680$ incluido desayuno e impuestos, es la que se observa al ingresar al hotel, por disposicion de las autoridades gubernamentales se debe declarar las tarifas y exibirlas en mostrador. La diferencia comentada es porque compro en buscador Booking con precios en dolar fijados a fin del año pasado, este mes hubo fuerte modificacion en la política cambiaria que altero el precio al convertirla a pesos según cotizacion oficial. El personal fue alertado por su queja y estamos trabajando para ser mas cordiales y amables.

it wasn't that easy to find although it was in fact just 100 meters from the town center but that hat to do more with our lack of orientation than with the hotel. The hostess was so friendly; she did everything she could to make our stay as pleasant as possible even though she spoke only 3 words of english and we 2 words of spanish. She even prepared us a Mate (of course with sweets) We had the choice in rooms and selected the upstairs room; a lovely, good sized room with many adobe details: beautiful! A minor remark: it takes 5 minutes to heat up the water for the shower. the hotel has a lovely small garden with great views on the mountains. Breakfast was OK with a fantastic european style pancake with (What else?...) dulce de leche.

There are now manymore hotels in Tilcara than the Ricon, which was branded best by Lonely Planet. It is a fine, welcoming, quiet hotel. The rooms are small and so are the bathrooms. Not much light as many rooms are at the ground floor and not oriented towards the sun. Limited but sufficient breakfast. Front desk is very friendly and gives good recommendations. There are better hotels, they may fill up faster.

Great place to stay but a bit overpriced in our opinion. Pictures are better than the place really is. Staff isn't very helpful. Rooms are spacious but noisy. Breakfast... Fresh bread which is nice. Loved the fireplace and sitting area!

This was a wonderful pousada! The rooms were very cosy. Very good service. Excellent cuisine. We could watch the chef preparing the meals.We could sit in the lovely garden under fruit trees (and order coffee from the chef), or in the evening in the lounge beside the open fire. Beside WLAN the pousada provided an extra computer for guests. We felt like at home.
