The hotel is perfectly located for touring the old city. The staff is very pleasant and the breakfast is very good. The rooftop garden is a great place to relax after a busy day but the pool is very small and can get crowded. The...More

This hotel has such great character. There's a couple of resident toucans and a swing at the back in a covered courtyard. The rooms are not large but the beds are to die for - best in Colombia. It's located within the walled city and...More

The people are very nice and the service is great. However, for the price the interior of the rooms are poor. The water pressure is terrible; only some of the outlets work; not much light in the rooms or the bathrooms.

First off, know that the toucans are gone. Having selected this hotel based on the toucans, I was disappointed, but I expect it's for the best - it's not appropriate for wild birds to be kept in a hotel, after all. The worst part, though...More

None of the rooms have balconies facing outside. The rooms all face an open atrium which is very light with lots of little niches to sit. Inside the rooms though, we felt it was very dark even with all the lights on.
