“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

The hotel was clean and beautiful and the stuff was very friendly.

Best thing to do is to go on a trip with the fog walkers, directly located next to the reception. You will receive a personalized guided tour in english or spanish throuh the valle de cocora...Awesome experience with a very nice guide who seems to know every nice spot, tree, and animal troughout the amazing tour.

A perfect hotel in Salento. Nice restaurant, kind staff, close to he funny in Calle Real, but far to the noise. Perfect location and beautiful facilities. I was there for 3 days in exploration about the natural landscape and business chances at tourism and the attention was perfect

The Salento Real is a very nice, modern hotel with small but well equipped rooms and an attractive covered courtyard between the rooms. It is built in the traditional local style with most of the rooms facing into the courtyard. However, this means that the rooms are rather gloomy, unless the windows and doors are left open,but then they lose their privacy. A few rooms at the front have views over the town, but they cost more. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the main street in Salento.
We found it cool in the dining area and the courtyard because it is open to the fresh air.
The breakfast was okay and the staff were friendly. There is free wi-fi.

Nice layout and friendly staff. Good breakfast though they get busy at seven with everyone going out for hikes. I was pleased I got a room at the back because of the dogs at night, the hens and the general bustle at reception from six onwards would have led to sleep problems. I got a 50% discount on Expedia which made the room good value. Good hot showers

The hotel is very well situated in a side street a short walk from the central square. Rooms are clean and well kept and the staff are very friendly. Hot water is by solar roof panels however, contrary to other guests comments, I found there to be plenty of hot water even if it takes a bit of time to come down from the storage tanks. A good value hotel worth its price, however I have deducted a star due to an issue with the 16% tax they charge on the bill. I asked for my bill to be made up the evening before departure and there were several ‘excuses’ why they could not do this. In the morning I had to pay without getting an invoice or receipt. Very poor book keeping. By the way the 16% tax is not refundable at the airport as it should not be charged in the first place. That being said I would still use it if I were to return to Salento.

Room Tip: Solar water heating means its better to shower in the evenings, as the sun does not shine at night i...

I only stayed 2 nights here while visting the cafe region and the Cocora valley.

This place is quite new (opened new-year 2013) and has nicely decorated rooms above a covered patio.

Liliana and Joanna are wonderful guests and make you feel at home.

You can eat in the restaurant adjacent to the lobby, try the local trout, which is quite tasty.

The hotel is located a few blocks away from the main square, far away enough to avoid the noise of the many bars from the square and calle real.

Probably one of the best places of Salento.

We stayed here for three nights last week and we loved it! The hotel is such a beautiful building with its courtyard and art everywhere. We had room 306 which was lovely, spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The staff is so sweet and do everything to make your stay as nice as possible. The location is perfect, quiet, though in front of a primary school, and yes, children tend to get a bit noisy at break times, so no big deal at all. You walk in 2,5 minutes to the main street where the main action is, close yet far enough to have a good night's rest. We had an absolutely unforgettable tour with Luis, the Fog Walkers Guide with his office right next to the hotel reception desk. Don't miss this, you will not regret it. Luis is really the best, and if your Spanish is not so perfect, no problem, Luis' English is very good.

Room Tip: I would recommend room 306 because of the windows towards the staircase so you have plenty light, or...
