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.

Very clean. Nice little hotel very well located. Like 2 blocks from main square.
Nice rooms with lots of character. Breakfasts was very good. Service is good and everybody was friendly. There is parking within the property. There are no amenities in the hotel, besides this everything else is fine. Little bit over price. But then, almost every hotel around here is.

We were staying in Villa de Leyva for New Year and found this property via search. Most of the reviews are in Spanish which reflects the fact that most of the guests are Colombian. It is set around a Central courtyard with ammonite shells built into the cobblestones.

The rooms have recently been refurbished and are bright, clean and a good size. Ours had a beautiful picture window with views of the Carmelite convent, village and surrounding hills.

The staff are friendly and helpful - for example if you are sat in the balcony they will offer coffee or juice. There is not much English spoken as I was called on to help with translation for a few fellow guests but winning smiles - especially from the breakfast team - more than compensated.

On our last day we had to leave early to get to Bogota for a flight - despite it being New Year's Day and before official breakfast start coffee, juice and toast were rustled up to send us on our way.

If you are driving there is also parking....

We were really pleased with our choice and hope other travellers enjoy it too..
