The old Spanish Colonial town of Giron has been absorbed into the metropolitan area of Bucharamanga, but is still very much its own town.
Hotel Las Nieves is right on the main square, which is a bustling place at all hours of the day and evening. The church - actually a large Basilica Minor - is just steps away. - as are the church bells in the AM.
The rooms are arranged around a 2 story courtyard. They are modest, but clean and comfortable, which is really all that matters. No problems with the bathroon either. I paid 40,000 pesos for a single room. Breakfast extra.
In the courtyard there is a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a small dessert place which opens up to the street.
The square is full of street food vendors of all kinds.
One word of warning, there is no conecting bus to Giron from the bus terminal, which seems to just serve long distance buses. You would need to either get off your bus before getting to the terminal and change to a city bus, or, take a taxi to Giron for about 8,000 pesos.
