Lovely colonial courtyard. And a good breakfast. But that's about where it stops.
Our room was quite cramped - barely enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was miniscule. And an odd layout. There was a tiny sitting area, but it was almost useless due to its small size, and the need to put our luggage there as no other spot was available. There was a curtain that separates the sitting area from the bed, which had to be kept closed, otherwise it was very easy to see into the room from outside. With the curtain closed, we no longer had access to our stuff without opening the curtain, and exposing ourselves to anyone who happened to be walking by.
And its noisy. Fortunately, the other guests on the night we stayed were very quiet. But the windows were so paper thin, we heard every word spoken by anyone in the courtyard like they were in the room next to us.
There was some sort of leak in the bathroom under the sink, and it smelled like sewage. Not sure what's going on there.
There was also some sort of coarse dust falling from the rafters. When I returned to the room, I pointed out the big pile of dust that had accumulated on the bed pillow, and housekeeping immediately changed out the sheets. But whatever caused the problem was still there, and I woke up to a fresh pile of dust.
Service was very nice and friendly - they really tried hard -, although if you don't speak any Spanish, be prepared to put on a good pantomime show.
I suppose there aren't a lot of options in Villa de Leyva, but unless you're a very sound sleeper and travel light, and willing to put up with some nonsense, I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
