279 Boutique Bed+Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 11 Alta Gracia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 March 2015

My partner and I were lucky to get a reservation at this 2 room B&B in a smallish town in the sierra near Cordoba, Argentina. Silvia's rooms are designed with comfort and beauty in mind. She is an artist (a photographer) and her eye for elegant design was evident in the details such as linens, and furnishings. Breakfast was typical Argentine but upgraded by homemade banana bread, healthy brown bread plus pastries, along with fresh OJ and coffee. On the rainy morning we left she cooked warming oatmeal to fill us up for the long hours we expected on the road. In addition to her suggestions for local sights, she helped us find a wonderful place to stay the following night, she gave us route suggestions, and ideas for other places to visit. Our only regret is that we could not stay another night with her!

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms!

Probably not but there is no possibly way of faulting this delightful B and B. The attention to detail makes for an impressive stay. Sylvia the host went out of her way to help us out and plan our forward trip and even sent us on our way with homemade banana bread (which was wonderful). More importantly she was a very lovely and fascinating person with the gorgeous Indian Jones in tow. If like us you are using Alta gracia as a stop over on our road trip then you will quickly realise you must stay here. Our only negative point is that we didn't get to stay longer.

Silvia's 279 B&B is the perfect model why you should always consider to stay at a homestay on your travels for at least a few days. With a host like Silvia you will feel a warm-hearted atmosphere that a hotel cannot offer. Silvia's door opens to a lovely yard with just two rooms on the side. They're small but very nice and still comfortable, especially with the yard as terrace. We had nice chats with Silvia and an oh-so good breakfast with homemade, mouth-watering banana bread. All in all a lovely experience. Thank you for the hospitality, Silvia!

My wife and I just returned from Cordoba Province and our time in Alta Gracia was surely a highlight due to the hospitality of Silvia at 279 B&B. The hotel is very centrally located in Alta Gracia, just blocks from the main square. Silvia is a photographer from New York City and brings a real eye for style and design to the rooms (modern and comfortable) and the garden (beautiful and inviting). She was generous with ideas for what to do and see in the area and lent us her bikes to explore the countryside. We also enjoyed a generous and delicious breakfast of omelettes, breads, yoghurt and coffee. Both of her restaurant recommendations were home runs - you have to try El Bistro de Alquimia. Silvia also helped us figure out bus schedules and gave us a lift to the bus stop in her WW2-era jeep. In short, we had an excellent time in Alta Gracia and Silvia's generous, informative and conversational hospitality was a major part of it.

What a wonderful B&B this was. It looked like a small house from the street but once you opened the door you stepped into a pretty courtyard. Silvia had redesigned the house and it was cool and comfortable. The rooms were spotless and we had a large king bed. We admired Silvia's photography and loved her dog Indie.
Silvia was very hospitable and she had a wealth of knowledge about things to see and excellent restaurants to visit.

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms available so get in early.
