We spent three nights here and loved it - and will return! Right in the heart of the action, it's a lovingly refurbished colonial house with small but perfectly fitted rooms. There is a bit of noise with people walking on the wooden floors, but it's a small price to pay to be in a great place. La Candelaria is... More

Lovely little hotel or hostel on the edge of the old town. Very convenient for many parts of city and they provided a reliable shuttle from the airport. Room was nice and clean with a good shower. Breakfast was fine and coffee was available free at all times. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The TV and WiFi were down for... More

Checked into the hostel, really friendly and helpful staff. Complimentary drink too! Laundry not expensive and it's close to many of the attractions and shops, restaurants nearby. Would come back for sure.

This hotel is used a lot by budget adventure travel companies and rightly so. It's affordable, well-located, everything is within an easy walking distance. The rooms are comfortable, the water is hot and the place is very well-maintained. The breakfast consists of fresh juice, fruit, eggs, bread, cereal and coffee or tea. The hotel was likely a family's home at... More

Stayed on the way in and out of Colombia. Staff were friendly and helpful, spoke excellent English. Smallish rooms off a central courtyard. Wifi and TVs in rooms. Could be loud at night with people coming in at odd hours (probably from international flights). Easy walking to Botero Museum, restaurants.

We spend 3 days at hotel Casa Platybus. A cute and friendly hotel in la Candelaria. Our staff were almost fluent in English and could help us out with several requests concerning tourist attractions, transportations and dinner recommendations. The rooms are clean and the shower was hot. We had a housekeeping service and fresh towels every day. The lobby and... More

This location makes it easy to find and get to all the sights. We stayed here twice in different rooms. The first room we had #6 had a shower with an odd door that would not fit a larger person. The court yard, spiral stair and hard walls made it noisy given inconsiderate guests and sometimes their roller cases on... More

A great location on the edge of La Calenderia. Easy to get to all tourist areas and public transport. Nice breakfasts and staff. I would recommend getting a room in the back courtyard as the noise from reception and breakfast rom can be a bit much. A few noisy French guests on both our stays. Staff very helpful.
