This hotel is wonderfully located for those who wish to walk around the streets of this charming colonial village. Its location puts you in the center of things that are worthwhile tourist attractions.
We found the service to be very helpful. The staff was warm and friendly. When someone couldn't communicate with me, he/she found someone who spoke English (I don't speak Spanish).
The beds and pillows were comfortable, but our group had mixed reviews on the pillows; some felt they were fine, while others thought they were too hard. Overall, those in our group slept well.
I think that when you add the meals, this hotel offers a good value. I don't think the reviewer from Copenhagen was fair in calling the meals "forgettable." What they were was local cuisine. Now, granted, if you don't like Colombian-style meals, you may not be happy. But when you travel to a small town in Colombia, expect to eat Colombian food! I have traveled in Colombia before and found the meals reasonable by "Colombian food" standards. In my opinion, most were quite good.
The rooms in which we stayed were spartan and somewhat dated, but very clean. Cleanliness is no problem. Some of the rooms may be more updated, but I didn't inspect all the rooms.
Overall, if you don't mind basic and dated rooms which are comfortable and have good air conditioning, you will be well-served by this hotel.
One final comment: when we stayed there in late December, the wifi was spotty. The management was aware of this problem, but could not get the technicians out from Medellin due to the holiday -New Years.
