Legado Mitico, SaltaSalta, Argentina
Located just a few blocks from the centre of the city, the Legado Mitico is a stunning boutique hotel which was converted from a mansion, retaining many of its features, in 2008. Style and warm hospitality are the main draws, and it has them in spades.
Great attention has been paid to style and furnishings with dark colours and discreet lighting, (think Persian rugs and antique furniture), very similar to their sister Legado Mitico hotel in Buenos Aires. Each of the 11 rooms is inspired by a different figure in the history and culture of Argentina and is subtly dressed appropriately with art and books to match. They are large, elegant and comfortable with kingsize beds. Some of the en-suite bathrooms have jacuzzis and some of the superior rooms have terraces. There is a central courtyard in the hotel with beautiful plants. In-room massages, facials, manicures and hair-cuts can be arranged on request.
Lunch and dinner are not provided in the hotel, but we took advantage of this to visit restaurants and bars located two blocks away in the lively avenue Balcarce.
