The hotel was down a small street with old buildings and as soon as we stepped inside it felt like an oasis. The hotel has interesting art work, antiques and an overall zen feeling. I really cannot see how anyone could complain about the interior as it was truly beautiful. The staff were very friendly, although most did not speak much English and nor did I expect them to, as afterall, I was in Colombia and the effort should be made on my part.
There were no provided toiletries but not a biggie. Breakfast was eggs, juice, coffee, toast and jam but you could pay more for pancakes, empinadas or a couple of other things.
I would not recommend the hotel for children if they are lively as it would not be relaxing for the parent to have to monitor them.
Of note, we decided to go to the roof to watch the storm over the city and I managed to fall down the stairs on the way down (totally my fault as who walks on concrete/marble stairs when they're wet), so beware of your footing in the rain.
We did not hear any outside noise from the street and it was a 5 minute walk to the walled city but we enjoyed the walk and everything about this stay. My first thoughts were this is the sort of place people should go for a honeymoon.
The roof pool was a plunge pool but beautiful, relaxing and refreshing.
