#23 of 59 hotels in Villa de Leyva
We are a reminiscent house of the seventeenth-century with a Spanish colonial architecture, with high ceilings and walls of more than one arm thick, located in the historic center of Villa de Leyva. After a careful restoration, the Posada became a place of rest, with 14 rooms organized around a central courtyard and wide corridors.

Adorable rooms, spacious and nice. All amenities were provided. Breakfast is included and is quite nice, we had ham and cheese omelets with coffee and juice. Located very close to the city center, very walkable. Great place for a weekend trip to see the town.

This is a good location near the main square, easy access which was appreciated. The staff was friendly, breakfast was decent, and served relatively quickly even when all tables were full. Filtered water was available 24/7 in the dining area to fill your water bottle. Check-in and check-out was efficient. The room was cleaned daily and was spotless. Very good housecleaning and attention to detail to keep it clean. Courtyard was nice looking and people stopping to take pictures who were walking by on the street. Hot water ran out a couple of times in the morning showers. Not sure if it was because our room was just above the kitchen. Wifi was ok, but not the strongest signal, that could be improved. Although we didn't drive, they did have off street parking available in an enclosed walled area adjacent to the property. It is a grassy area, so our kid ran around in it too to burn off some energy. For the price we paid, we felt the room was a little on the small side compared to nearby properties where our friends stayed. They paid about $10 more per night and had rooms which were 2x the size or larger, and one of them even had a fireplace in their room.

Like a little hacienda while being in town. 1 block away from the main street of nicer stores, restaurants. This is not on the bus station side of the town.... much quieter and peaceful. I have stayed here 3 separate times. Seen most all the rooms and they were nice. Brought a group of 12 people one trip and the owners were very helpful and accomodating. The husband and wife team take very nice care of their property. A very traditional kitchen is located on the first floor where they make breakfast. Nice options and super sweet wait staff. I like that some of the apartments are two story and have cool wooden details. You feel like you are out in the country in a very old, well maintained Villa. They have rooms with at least 3 beds so you can bunk up together if you like traveling as a group. They also have nice rooms for couples with a Queen size bed. Nice dark heavy wood furnishings. I think they have parking too. I think this a great hotel that would appeal to anyone. Very clean, nice bedding. Lots of blankets too. It's a kind of small hotel that remembers you when you come back, even a couple years later.

This quaint B&B run by an adorable Colombian couple named Carlos and Rosalba is the perfect place for a relaxing and romantic stay in Villa de Leyva. The location is absolutely perfect, located in the historic center of Villa de Leyva, just a 10 minute walk from the bus station, and only a block or two away from the main plaza. It's close to all sorts of shops and restaurants, but is far enough away where there isn't too much foot traffic and it's nice and quiet. Our private room was super spacious, with a couch, a large closet to hang our clothes for the weekend, and a large bathroom. The best part however, was the great big window that showcased amazing views of the town and the mountains off in the distance. The views were also wonderful from the balcony, looking out into the B&B's main courtyard and the mountains on the other side of Villa de Leyva. This B&B is a restored mansion from the 17th century, with Spanish colonial architecture, high ceilings, and 14 rooms arranged around a central courtyard. The property is so well maintained, with lush green grass and beautiful flowers throughout the property, and also has all sorts of interesting little odds used for decoration. My favorites were the vintage electronics on display, like the rotary dial phone, 1950s television set, and their clock collection. Although it was very traditional in the sense of its colonial architecture, I really enjoyed the quirky little details that gave it even that much more character. My stay at Posada Portal de la Villa was so relaxing and really added to an excellent experience in Villa de Leyva. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low key atmosphere with beautiful old world charm and touch of romance. Sometimes, I felt like I had stepped back in time, and it was a really wonderful feeling!

Low prices, clean and comfortable rooms, is perfect if you want a simple place to sleep and hang around town during the day. The shower has limited hot water People is really nice. During the day the doors are open but in the night you have to ring a bell so they open to you... The 3 Breakfast options fit in everyones diet.
