“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

We stumbled across this hidden gem by accident. I didn't stay in the hotel here but we ate in their restaurant one evening and the food was sublime! Totally faultless. Between us we had the 500g steak, the salmon (with a passion fruit sauce) and the chicken. All were cooked to perfection and the mash was delicious too! The staff were lovely and very attentive and the ambience was lovely as it's a small place. Prices also very reasonable.

I would certainly go back and I recommend it to anyone.

We just came back to the New York area from this hotel. We stayed at other hotels more expensive than this one in other parts of Colombia and this one was the best. The room we had was very small which made me a bit disillusioned however upon seeing t he details like the note welcoming us, the jazz music playing on the tv, the very cold ac, the incredible view from the balcony, the details in the room, the magnificent bathroom, the details, the super nice staff and willing to help us with anything. After seeing all the pluses I forgot the room was small and enjoyed my stay there to the max. Love the jacuzzi on the top floor. I actually spend about 2 hours there by myself where it felt I was at my own private spa able to meditate and sunbathe. I would recommend this hotel anytime over any other big chain hotel. OHHHH...the breakfast...best ever!!! I want to do the same breakfast here now. Also the beds were so comfy, most beds in other hotels were super hard, not here. They work hard at making u have a superb experience and it showds.

Room Tip: Perhaps pick a room with a little more room.

Cute little boutique with very friendly staff. Reasonable priced around $200 night. (The Sofihotel is grand but $500/night). Good internet, satellite channels, free bicycles, good breakfast, cold air conditioner, warm shower, big comfortable bed, big towels for pool / jacuzzi. Well situated. So good value for money.

This is by far the best experience I have had in a boutique hotel in all of my world travels. The staff and service provided was excellent. The hospitality shown will forever be appreciated. My security was top priority to the hotel, the manager went above the call of duty. I had ask for directions, but he asked his staff to escort me to the location so I won't get lost :-) The 'noise' and door bell few other reviewers have complained about is so irrelevant when you are having a brilliant time. I will definitely be back. Great location too xo
