What a lovely hotel in Tilcara and Pat was a delightful hostess, too! Located a SHORT 10-minute walk to the central square downhill... certainly not 30 minutes. Yes, dogs bark, but they do that all over Argentina... nice view from the public area which is so homey. The free parking is locked at night, but we had a key if... More

Having been locked out of El Refugio del Pintor just down the road at 11pm, I was overjoyed to find not only that Patio Alto was still open, but the warmest of welcomes from the charming Manager, Pat, who having made repeated efforts to phone my hotel in vain, thankfully was able to give me a large, spotlessly clean room...

Hotel is located above the small town of Tilcara and is a bit tricky and annoying to get to. I was lured in to stay at hotel because it appeared to have view of town but this was not the case.

The hotel is warm, welcoming and comfortable. The rooms are large and well appointed. It is the little touches that make it so good - the ability to make a drink when you want, use the fridge, home made muesli and jams at breakfast, cake put out for afternoon tea, fresh fruit and water in the rooms.
