Very Good
Aug 31, 2023
A well priced private room with good A/C which was perfect for before and after the Lost City trek. Ok location with a 20 minute walk or 8,000 COP taxi into the centre. Staff were generally great but on the last day when we collected our laundry they charged us an additional 50% claiming it weighed more than they originally quoted. It wasn’t a huge issue but left a bit of a bad taste right at the end.
