Spent 3 nights at Allure with some friends. Staff are super friendly, reasonably priced and in a great location. La Trinidad square is around the corner - great for food and drinks. Media Luna close by that threw a good party while we were there, we took one of our Allure concierges with us because we was a legend. 10...

The staff were wonderful. Front desk is on the second floor but the walk up wasn't tedious. We had the room in the back and it was very quiet. I wouldn't recommend the room in the back if you have wide suitcases. It's a spiral staircase. They now offer daily breakfast but you're still allowed to eat at their sister...

The bed was comfortable and the closet was very spacious. Once thing we noted was that the safe was not bolted down, which...

The hotel is located in a good location - short walk to the old town, as well as short walk to Trinidad square. Staff was very friendly, and spoke good English, which is not trivial in Colombia, even in hotels and other touristic businesses. They also did their best to try to help with any question we had.
