3 nights in double superior room at COP 120000 per night. Double bed and aircon. Weak WIFI signal in room but fine in other areas including attached cafe. On 2nd level above lobby. Bathroom functional but definitely a tight squeeze. Daily clean. No hot water which can sometimes be fun when you have aircon. Room was OK but not overly spacious if you want to spread out a little (ie my bag stayed closed). Easy 5 minute walk into old city. Located in red light area but the girls are harmless enough and always felt safe, even later at night. Big tourist police presence in area. 5 minute walk the other way to the fort / castle which is a must see. Taxi from airport in was $10 at 11pm but got one off the street going back for $5. Cafe attached has reasonable food and local shops very close by for water etc. Staff were very helpful with some understanding of English and plenty of places in the lobby and on 2nd floor to sit and chill. Laptop you can borrow for photos etc. Pretty good location and a very nice place to base yourself from.
