“I don'tt get the nice reviews”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

I am writing this review from the hotel and I just don't get the nice review.
Clean? i just found some hair in the bedding.
Nice and new? if you like rococo decoration from the 60's
They only give one old towel per room no matter if you are two or not.
The receptionist is as moody as a moody teenager can be.
The rooms are freezing and no chance to get a water bottle.
Have I mentioned that there are children playing in the corridor and music blasting ?
we wish we had gone with the Lonely planet recommendation instead of the tripadvisor one.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

We spent an unintended night in Ipiales and had done no research into where to stay. This hotel is located just opposite the bus terminal and is by far the most modern looking building in the vicinity. A double room ensuite with tv was COP25 000 for the night and was clean and surprisingly decent. It makes visiting the Sanctuario de Las Lajas convenient as the collectivos are at the bus terminal (this costs COP2000 per person-note these are normal taxis but are white and will only leave once filled unless you pay the equivalent of 4 persons) and to take a taxi to the border (COP7000). Unfortunately there are no banks or decent unless you take a taxi to the "centro" (COP2000-3000), however there are several small kiosks and internet cafes within the terminal itself.

I normally try not to go to hotels, but as I did not find a hostel in Ipiales and Hotel Metropol was just outside the bus station, we decided to stay there. For the price (25.000 for a double), it was really nice. Really clean and new, with good sized private bathroom and TV. The beds were confortable. There are not a lot of restaurants in the area so if you do want to have something to eat you will have to do so in the bus station or go to the city center.
