Villa de Leyva without reservation

What are my chances of finding a nice-looking room with private bathroom upon arrival in Villa de Leyva, on a Thursday mid January, for about 50.000 COP or less?

Or should I book in advance? (Especially since I may want to stay 2 or 3 nights?)

Normally I prefer to play it by ear, and see a room before I decide, and let the number of nights depend on how much I like a town. But I worry that everything might be fully booked in Villa de Leyva for a Thursday and Friday.

Or are there enough hotels to choose from and is one bound to have a room for me? And will I be able to negociate a better price face-to-face? (I don't mind searching for an hour or so).

Villa de Leyva gets VERY busy at weekends but arriving on a Thursday will make things easier. We were there a few weeks ago and after walking around a lot stayed at a nice place called Posada La Villa de Alcala. Nice room, private bathroom, very clean and just 40,000 maybe because it was a little outside the town - turn left out of the bus station and it is a 5 minute walk along Cr 9 at no. 5-104. You can definitely bargain everywhere a bit especially for 3 nights. If you are there on a Saturday dont miss the market.

Sorry for not getting back earlier and thanks for your reply!

I ended up going on weekdays (I think Mon-Tue-Wed or something), and found a cheap and very friendly hotel Don Paulino for 35.000 COP per night (solo) for a room with private bathroom, 2 blocks from the main plaza. I loved Villa de Leyva!
