This is a very nice hotel, I had a beautiful big room, big bathroom with bathtub, desk, few seats with a table, big very comfy bed (great mattress) an everything looked very well maintained and clean. The hotel is in the middle of the city looking out over Parque Francisco José de Caldas from a corner. The only downside is the limited isolation of noise. Streetlife starts at around 6 am and you won't be able to sleep past that.

Thanks for your comment. We are working on noise isolation solutions. However since our building is 400 years old and holds status of arquitectural monument, we have some legal and technical constraints when performing major works. Thanks again.

It is a unique and very special small family hotel right in middle of the center of old colonial Popayan. The moment you enter the hotel you get a sense of history. The building was a monastery built in the 16th century. In 1983, the building had to go an extensive reconstruction following a severe earthquake, which destroyed the tower of the building, luckily without any body damage. When we arrived, they put us in a very nice and large room point toward the central square of Popayan. As this room was very noisy, they gave us an inside room which was smaller and quiet. The best part in this hotel is the beautiful eclectic decoration from last two centuries, which gives a feeling of living in another era. We just love it. Breakfast was basic, but all stuff was extremely welcoming, and they served us other things than their regular fixed breakfast (eggs, delicious fruits and bread) after asking. We stayed in the hotel for 3 days in October. Two of these days were weekend - holiday days when all the shops in center are close, and only in our last day, we had the chance to experience the amazingly colorful ordinary weekday in old center of Popayan. This city center has been active for periods of ups and downs during more than four centuries. Don't miss it! The hotel is located just in the middle of all the happening. Therefore, if you prepared to give up some luxury of modern high-class hotel for a very special atmosphere, we very highly recommend it.

A nice hotel in the heart of the old colonial city of Popayan, Colombia. The rooms are spacious, though a bit dark inside (not their fault, this is an old colonial convent turned into a hotel). The breakfast is just average, which is one of my main reasons for the average rating. The bathrooms needed to have more barns and handles for towels, etc. Finally, the queen size beds are nice but the seamstress are a bit\hard, no doubt by choice. Location is excellent, near Plaza de Caldas, the heart of the colonial city, close to all museums. (Note: We prefer the nearby Hotel La Plazuela, also in an old colonial building, but somehow a bit more welcoming).
