This is not a full list of our Purmamarca hotels but simply a selection of our most popular to date, there are others across the price range so please let us advise you according to your requirements and budget. Tilcara and Humahuaca hotels are also shown below:
Los Colorados, crafted from adobe, is an excellent complex of self-contained cabins with an other-wordly feel to it. Only three blocks from the main square with its 18th century church and old adobe town hall, the luxurious cabañas, are tucked into the side of the Seven Coloured hill. The superior rooms have satellite TV and air conditioning, and there’s wifi throughout.
Casa de Adobe
Casa de Adobe is a fabulous spa hotel 10 minutes’ walk from town. All rooms have A/C, wifi and satellite TV: the spa rooms also boast a sauna and shower. It also has an upstairs restaurant and bar with stunning views of Los Colorados, part of the Seven Coloured hill.
Manantial del Silencio
Though only built in 2000, Manantial del Silencio has a very traditional feel to it: it was designed by award-winning architect Mariano Sepulveda who specialises in the neo-colonial style. The rooms have a sleek, monastic feel to them: there is wifi but no TV. The town centre is only ten minutes away, but the hotel also has an excellent restaurant.
This is a lovely higher-end place a short walk from the center of town with rooms set around a grassy, cacti filled plaza. Adobe constructions are complimented by the use of wood and other local materials, rooms very well appointed and nicely decorated…the hotel gives the impression of space and also has nice views of the surrounding canyon. Great common areas with a pool, spa, lounge area, dinning room, bar and gift shop.
Casa de Piedra
The central location is a real plus with this hotel as you are able to easily wander the town at night and choose where to go out to eat. Even though this is a more simple place with less facilities than many others it really has all you need for a short visit. The rooms are nicely done, on 2 floors around a parking area, they have comfy beds and well equiped bathrooms. There is a lounge and dining area which doubles as the breakfast space.
Gaia Boutique Hotel
Gaia boutique hotel is very central, only a couple of blocks from Tilcara’s main square with its colourful artisans’ market. It’s run by a young English-speaking couple and has five airy rooms, each with wifi and coffee and tea-making facilities. Your host Francisco can help you with mountain biking excursions so if you like that idea let us know.
Posada de Luz
Posada de Luz is an excellent boutique hotel four blocks from the main square: with only six rooms, it’s very welcoming and tranquil. All rooms have a terrace where you can sit out and watch the sun go down: and it’s one of the few hotels in Tilcara with a swimming pool. Free wifi throughout. Like many of the locals, owner Luz is originally from Buenos Aires, but came to the Quebrada de Humahuaca and fell in love with the landscape.
Las Terrazas is another superb boutique hotel set into the hillside but just a couple of blocks from Tilcara’s 19th century church and five minutes’ walk from the main square. Cleverly using railway sleepers and the Quebrada’s distinctive cactus wood, the hotel has its town restaurant with an excellent wine cellar, a comfortable lounge, and every room has its own verandah, satellite TV and free wifi.
Note: As it’s built on the hillside, stairs to the room are quite steep, so this hotel is not ideal for guests with restricted mobility.
Malka is a chilled out hippy hangout. It’s quiet and spacious, set on a leafy hillside overlooking the town. The double rooms are spacious: each room equipped with tea and coffee making facilities. The cabañas also have a large living room and kitchen, and all rooms have terraces so you can sit out and relax. There’s a cosy breakfast room with free wifi (no TV). The owners Juan and Teresa also offer yoga, meditation and bongo drumming classes: well, we did say it was a hippy hangout!
