A lovely boutique hotel run by a lovely person: Maria Helena. Ideal location, right in Salento’s Main Street. It can be a bit noisy during weekends and fiestas but that’s part of the charm of Salento. Maria Helena is just a wonder, she speaks English and really enjoys sharing good tips with travelers. We spent 3 nights there and it will remain one of our very best memories
Our hostess Marie Elena was careful to ensure we got every possible ounce of enjoyment from our stay. The most caring of people, she prepares a wonderful breakfast, simple practical advice on what is the best way to enjoy the area. My wife and I loved her and she and her garden with hummingbirds and beautiful flowers made for a favourite stay not only in Colombia, but quite possibly of any holiday to date. A lovely lady, a lovely property and an absolutely beautiful 4 days.
My wife, my cousin and I spent 3 nights at the charming hotel, located right on the main street of Salento. Hidden behind the street front is an enchanting garden, enclosed on 3 sides by verandas, where rooms are located. Our hotess, Maria Helene, was more than just friendly and welcoming. I arrived with a "loose" tummy and was cared for with special breakfasts, herb tea and an evening bowl of porridge to help alleviate the problem. She even gave advice on how to contact a doctor in the town when my blood sugar dropped suddenly around midnight, summoning our driver, "Melon", to get me there!
The place breathes the air of love. Neat very well taken care of patio garden spreads the atmosphere of the regions climate, Señora Elena is the perfect host to make her guests feel comfortable at the Posada, knows the do´s and don´t in the area very well. And on top of that the Posada is located very centric, so all the relevant places in town can be reached with no difficulty
A great place to stay, the owner is a fantastic lady with lots of anecdotes about the town and the region. And the dogs are really well behaved! Only drawback is the absence of windows, only shutters, so it can get a bit chilly at night but the blankets are warm and cozy.
