I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with a group tour. This hotel was in a good location. 2 blks from main square and half a block from the bus station. Free good wifi in rooms. Breakfast was on the roof terrace and was decent. The hotel is on the busiest corner in San gil so from 530am-6pm it... More

The staff here was simply incredible. They helped with everything, gave me free bottled water when I was sick, and couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. The street below was a bit noisy (I was suprised at how congested San Gil was in January) and the terrace upstairs could use some better ventilation but you don't really visit San... More

Noisy location (especially during the daytime) but very friendly, accommodating staff. Pleasant terrace area where a fairly decent breakfast is served every day. Management also let us use the kitchen to prepare our own Xmas Eve dinner. Good, fast laundry service too.

Very nice hotel. Good location walking distance to shops and restaurants but corner location means early morning traffic noise at the front. Rooms are bright and very clean and water is hot. Staff are friendly and breakfast is good.

This hostel could really be on to something in quiet sleepy San Gil, but it doesn't do itself many favours. The entrance is via a permanently padlocked front door, which is fine to enter as you just press a doorbell, but is a royal pain in the backside when you want to leave. The front desk isn't always manned during... More

The place has a great atmosphere, all the activities to be done in San Gil can be booked from the front desk, which helps a lot for planing the holidays to fit the needs as a tourist anybody may have! Great attention, very affordable prices, delicious breakfasts and a very friendly crew make this hotel the perfect place to stay... More

There are two Santander Aleman hostels in San Gil... The white one is a bit more expensive, my boyfriend and I stayed at the other hostel, which was great. The rooms are really cozy, colorful, have comfortable beds and the staff is great. There is a kitchen to cook and I think it is a better deal than macondo for... More

I m talking about the hostel (uphill from the park), not the hotel (left of the park) owned by two brothers. I guess the other one is good too, but is stayed in the hostel. Clean, cheap, good value! Relaxing place. The owning couple is super nice. Took me two days and i felt like home. The place has everything... More

The hotel has a central and excelent location, that could explain that some of the room could get noisy. The hotel is very clean, and all rooms have ventilators. The roof terrace is very nice, and you can take your breakfast there. The staff and the owner Ivan can arrange all activities you want and explain you everything you want... More

cosy hostel/hotel in San Gil, central location, great staff. Stunning roof terrace. Can arrange all activities you want and explain you everything you want to know. Absolutely recommendable to book your stay at this place for tourists. no AC but ventilator is OK in San Gil. Price is great for what you get. We had an excellent time here.
