there are many other options in the area
Posted Nov 15, 2012
the hotel is nice enough and situated in a convenient location, but the owner is weird, so this review is not for the hotel, but the owner... while he took the time to demonstrate the use of the shower and explained the use of the safe, the very basic thing of providing a map was neglected - i was told to go to the plaza where there would be "better maps".
after roaming around for a few hours and stumbling upon the plaza, i got the map but forgot where the hotel was! by luck or by chance, i ran into the owner, who explained to me that he owned two hotels and that one was better than the other. i was not staying at the better one! is this not bad etiquette in Colombia?
also, i met his afternoon staff upon returning and he was nice enough to give me a map of the area! the place is nice, clean and convenient, but the owner has strange manners, with all the options in hotels and hostels in the area, why put money in his pocket.
