Enjoy the spirit of Spanish colonialism in a very magic place. The staff is the key added value to a wonderful building with a superbe pool in the patio and on the rooftop. Only dark point could be the noise of some works...

We stayed here 3 nights with my husband and were very pleased. The architecture of Casa Pombo is absolutely stunning! The staff is very friendly and our room was cosy. The only shame is there is no service of drinks or food in the house, outside of breakfast.

Delightful apartments arranged practically & tastefuly within a courtyard around a cool central pool designed with natural materials.

This gorgeous house filled with history is in the very heart of the city. You cannot be any more centrally located, literally: the farthest place within the so called "old city" or "ciudad amurallada" is a 15 minute walk; and I would like to emphasise on the fact that I mention the "farthest place", because pretty much everything is within...

The Casa Pombo is fantastic. From the moment the big wooden doors open, you walk into a beautiful property with amazing history and charm. Harold was incredible and assisted us with anything we needed with a smile. We couldnt have been happier. Thanks
