Great location, friendly staff. Laundry prices are insanely overpriced, as are the items they sell in the boutique, but what can you do? Common areas are nice but the sauna and steamroom do not work well.

The Taxi stand is situated right outside the customs exit and they give you a ticket with the price. So there is no need worrying about overpricing. The fare is about 12000 COP which is about $4.50
