“Very Nice”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 1-night but would have liked a couple more. Located in Villa de Leyva, about 3-hours from Bogota. It is a small property, very clean and basic. I think it is rated 3-stars and fits the ratings. More of a bed and breakfast feel. Staff was very nice, good breakfast. Has a spa as well but didn't have time to partake. The area is very nice, small colonial town with great views. Overall very comfortable and clean.

Stayed February 2014, traveled solo

We stayed for a couple of nights in this hotel. Our room (on top of the reception) was very spacious with a king bed and a sitting area with a sofa-bed. It also had a balcony with chimney that the hotel staff lit for us. The view wasn't great - it's towards an interior garden and the other hotel building but pleasant enough. The room looked very new with a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom which was also spacious. The staff at the hotel was helpful- we mixed the buttons in the tub and splashed water all over the floor and someone came right away to mop. Our toddler spilled some food on his clothes and they offered their laundry area so I could wash his clothes. I'm not sure why other reviewers would say it's far since it's only a couple of blocks away from the central plaza. Everything was very clean, they were generous with toiletries and rooms were made up promptly. Breakfast was buffet style (but I was told this is only in the high season) so it was plentiful with fresh fruits, arepas, bread, eggs any style, coffee and fruit juice. We ate lunch and dinner there once but food was so-so. Spa seemed nice and although pool was small, no one was using it. I do not think Willa de Leyva is that kind of vacation- it's not warm enough and if at all, it is warm only for about 3 hours a day- the rest of the day is pretty cool, so that was not a negative for me. I would say that if you want to stay at the hotel all day, the Duruelo would be the place to go- in our case we went to VDL to enjoy the town and its surroundings and this hotel was perfect for all of that. (Note: they are maintaining the road in front of the hotel- while there, they had stopped construction since it was holiday season but expect lots of dust in the first half of 2014) Last note: there are only 3 certified hotels by the Tourism Ministry in VDL: Duruelo, Fundadores (both 4 stars) and this one (3 stars)- the other ones don't have to adhere to any standards because they haven't been certified. This was one of the reasons for choosing this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back for lower noise levels. The rooms on top of reception are nice but if you...

Good points: 5 to 10 minute walk to the town centre. Very good service, for example, we woke at 1am with a mosquito buzzing in the room (unusual for Villa de Leyva), and couldn't find it, so we called reception. In a couple of minutes someone was at our door with a can of Raid. Massages are good and well priced. Our suite had it's own terrace with jacuzzi and wonderful views of the town, mountains and stars. The hotel is on the main perimeter road, but our room was set back and not affected by any traffic noise.

Not so good points: breakfast average and very weak coffee. Our stay was marred by noisy young children poorly controlled by their parents, who left them to run around screaming and throwing stones at the fish on the pond. The small swimming pool would probably be nice if it hadn't been monopolised for ages by a large extended family.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and have a suite with terrace and jacuzzi.

This hotel looks charming, but it's not a very nice place to stay. It is located directly in front of the road, so the location is not the best. The towels we used had holes, and the pool was very small. The jacuzzi looked dirty, and so were the showers. The hotel staff was not very attentive - breakfast was ok but the waiter seemed to forget we were there. The rooms were fairly large but quite dark, equipped with a minifridge and a TV.
It's ok to stay for a night, and liveable, but you can stay in much better hotels for a much better price. We didn't get our money's worth.

This hotel was very nice, within close proximity to the centre of town. On arrival the hotel was a bit hard to find, but with Police and soldiers scattered around the town, we were soon sent in the right direction. On arrival the hotel is beautiful with a nice reception, layout and view. The staff are friendly enough and were more than happy to carry our luggage to our room. The room is very nice, but looks a little older and smaller than the pictures on here suggest. It is also possible to hear doors closing and people talking outside of the room. Even though we didnt have time to, the pool and spa look very nice. I really liked this hotel and would stay again, however there seemed to be cheaper, nicer and closer hotels in town.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor and looked over the mountains which was very nice. However the room...

A nice hotel with simple, clean rooms with good showers. We had a double and a quadruple and felt we got good value for money. The pool is very warm (good for a cool day, but not for cooling off on a hot day).

The whole family got massages and "mani/pedi" at a very reasonable cost,

We had pre-booked a room at this hotel before arriving in Villa de Leyva and, after checking in and looking around, we went on a search to find a new place to stay. Our room was on the second floor, above the exterior wall, and faced toward the town's main street. It was anything but peaceful, with constant noise from cars, motorbikes, and larger trucks going by the hotel on their way through town. Due to the paved streets here, it's one of the few areas in town where people can drive fast, so they take advantage of the opportunity. When we asked if they might have a quieter room, they showed us one even closer to the street. The staff were in complete denial about the noise level here and told us "everywhere in town will be the same".

We would have been willing to accept a little noise if the amenities had been worth it. The "pool" was tiny, however, and the hot tub would only fit four people, and even then it would be tight. It was also a further walk into the main part of the town and we were traveling with my partner's mother, who does not see very well and would not have been able to walk the route to the town center in the dark.

We hated this place so much, we sucked up a penalty to go find another place to stay.
