Solid, good rooms, and beds, very good breakfast, in Colombian terms, very helpful and friendly staff, good location, except on weekends, because the adjacent 'park' on the banks of the river 'Brazo Mompox' is centre stage for Momposino/as celebrating, drinking, dancing, thus it can get a bit noisy. Not exactly cheap in comparison, but quite 'precise' as a machinery of...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights to explore this historic UNESCO village. Our #8 room was a standard(135,000Cop = $50/night) courtyard view with a comfortable double with nightstands, wardrobe, quiet AC, fan, triple cane chairs, and nice bathroom. It was cold water only and had the architectural quirk of an open wall at the top that adjoined the next...

Very convenient location. On one side is river Magdalena, on the other side the colonial city center with lots of churches, palaces, wonderful streets, horse carriages. Reception and staff are friendly and helpful; helpful for communication is knowledge of basic Spanish. Entrance and fairly big adjacent communal areas are equipped with beautiful local chairs and other furniture, made in Mompox....

This gorgeous guest house was converted from a family home by the English owner and his Momposian wife - and yes it is as yellow as it's name suggests! It is in a fantastic location on the banks of the Magdalena, right next to beautiful Church Santa Barbara. The guest house centres around a flowered courtyard, with a kitchen and...

I stayed there because of the good reviews I read. I must say that I didnt enjoy my stay at all: The rooms are quite run down and would need some painting and refurbishment. In addition, the service was pretty poor. The staff at reception is changing too often and don't ensure that things agreed with the customers are getting...

With the inner courtyard, the spacious rooms, the friendly staff, this seemed a bit like an oasis to us. It was clean, comfortable and centrally located (5mins to the main square). The WiFi was a bit unstable, especially when lots of ppl were on it. The square outside seems to be a popular hangout place for the locals (music, bars),...

I was very happy to hang out here during the day and enjoy the lovely garden from the communal kitchen. The owners Richard and Alba speak English and are very kind and helpfull. Rest of the staff is very kind...

We had a bit of confusion about the room we'd booked but the staff moved us into another room the next stay, so it was quickly rectified! The rooms are (mostly) downstairs around a nice garden courtyard - it's much cooler there than upstairs too. Very nice, simple and comfortable rooms, a delicious breakfast and lots of helpful advice. Great...

I wasn't going to visit Mompós but I am very glad I did. Casa Amarilla is the best choice in town and has a wonderful staff. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable with nice sheets. if coming to Mompós, this is the place to stay!

Finally we made it to Mompos and the drive from Cartagena wasn't that bad. We had the chance to pass the new bridge and that made things easier for us. The B&B is located at the end of the little town next to the Santa Barbara Square and Church. The lady at the front was nice and we had the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The only true guesthouse in a colonial mansion in front of the river for travelers in Mompos. We have comfortable, spacious and clean en suite private rooms as well as more economical "backpacker rooms", a communal kitchen, a sitting room with cable TV and a large colonial main room. The Casa Amarilla is equipped with wifi and hammocks sway between the pillars of the house around the internal garden and those who come for just a day or two often end up spending more time enjoying the roof terrace and company of other like-minded voyagers. Come and enjoy colonial Mompos - the Garciamarquian heartland. ... more   less
