A hotel with a very good location, but 250.000 COP for a doble room is too much!! We spent 4 nights, had to ask several times for toilet paper or fresh towels. Continental breakfast was included, but every day something was missing. Service friendly but very unexperienced!!!

Pros-As others have written the location on the main plaza is convenient. The pretty brick interior and the gardens are well maintained. It's pretty upon entering into the reception area. The water pressure in the shower is great and the toilet flushes well. (isn't always a given) The shower also had plenty of hot water. The bed was pretty comfortable.... More

I have spent just one weekend in Villa de Leyva, I chose hotel Plaza Mayor because of it's perfect location, I have reserved one room for 3 people by phone a night before arrival, didn't even had to make a payment with my credit card. The price was very reasonable, only 80,000 COP per person, which equals to 40 USD,... More

Hotel Plaza Mayor is a rare find. A wonderful hotel in the heart of the town square with amazing views and impressive design/architecture. The hotel itself is a short walk to the wonderful restaurants that Villa de Leyva has to offer and one can just happily sit on the terrace and look at the happenings in the town square and... More

The unique location and awesome bar overlooking the huge colonial main square are the main top reasons to be here. It's a normal small town hotel, quite simple but still confrotable enough with an average food at the restaurant.

Having stayed there before and obviously having liked it, I decided to recommend it to a couple of friends and decided to go back... O dear, I truly regret it and wish I hadn't made such a mistake, since the service we got from the management was not only bad, but also extremely rude and quite lacking respect and even... More

As part of a tour I was assigned by chance the best room in the hotel, room 302 on the 3rd floor with direct access to the terrace. Others in our group, however, got much smaller, darker rooms. Such is the way of Colombian hotels: some rooms big, some small, some bright, some dark. Obviously, we all had differing opinions... More

Very nice hotel, great blend of old and new. The architect used traditional materials and some key features of Spanish Colonial architecture in restoring a old Spanish home. The service is very friendly, the breakfast is excellent, the location is perfect (the only hotel directly on the Plaza Mayor, the center of it all), and the terrace offers the best... More

This hotel has a great location, right on the Plaza Mayor, in front of the cathedral. For a stay of one night only it is acceptable, although in February it was cold and the hotel had no heating or individual heater they could provide for guests comfort. Staff were nice and tried to make our stay as best they could.
