Guidebooks imply that Casa Amarilla is the only reasonably priced hotel in Mompox. I made a reservation there, but when I arrived, the hotel did not have my reservation, and furthermore was full, therefore I was left to roam the streets to find an alternative.
Casa de España seems to be unknown at the moment - not in guides and not available to book through internet booking sites, however it is an excellent hotel that deserves more business.
The hotel is situated on the main north / south street in Mompox, very close to the three plazas. It's an old colonial building with an interior courtyard.
Room rates are very reasonable, and despite the age of the building, for your money you get extreme clean with good quality / new beds, pillows, sheets. New and freezing cold air-conditioning. New and lovely bathroom fittings. New flat screen tv. There is also a communal kitchen with modern / new appliances and bottled water for cooking. The air-con in the rooms, and the fridge in the kitchen are absolute heaven in a town as oppressively hot as Mompox, and the ability to cook your own food is a major advantage to people who don't want to eat the limited choice the town's comedors / restaurants offer: that is meat / things that have been deep fried.
Wifi is available in the courtyard. Staff are lovely. Security is excellent. The vibe is peaceful. In short, this place is an extremely good deal.
