great quaint hotel
It’s a really quaint hotel in a colonial house with nice rooms. We stayed in one of the smaller ones but heard some have a fire place. Service is amazing they are all very nice. Breakfast is great! Close to Villa de Leyva to go for day trips but far enough to not have to deal with all the noise and craziness of the town.

Beautifully decorated property with walkable roads that provide views of the countryside. Very accommodating staff. When the staff is unable to provide transportation to town, Ruby, the cab driver is fantastic!

10 pm curfew if you don’t have a car
Casona San Nicolás is a beautiful property, beautiful views of mountains. Rooms are very nicely decorated. Check in was very easy even though we showed up late due to bus making so many stops from Bogota. Definitely take a direct route of libertadores bus service. Transportation was my main issue with hotel location. NO taxi service after 10pm, and the property is about 20 minutes by car from city center easily over a 80 minute walk. So that is a major issue if you have not rented a car.
