Hi, it’s me Marimonda. Continuing my previous post on Popayán, today, I’d like to review the hotel Dann Popayán.
As I mentioned earlier, this was the last accommodation that I would stay in this trip. Thus, I wanted to chill out and relax a lot before the long bus trip to Medellín. That’s why I booked this hotel. Though it didn’t went as I planned, I had a great refreshing moment at the place.
It used to be a monastery in the past, the whole place was equipped with all the antique things that I saw in the National Museum Guillermo Valencia Popayán. It felt weird that I could sit on the chair that I saw in the museum and have some snacks.
I booked a double room. My room has a window toward the street. Though the street seemed very close, so I couldn’t open the curtain. Thus, the room was quite dark. Especially at night, the light was weak as you can see in the picture below.
In each drawer, there was a bible and the room was full of religious things.
In the garden, there are some tables and chairs so I could enjoy the Sun. Also there is a swimming pool I could enjoy, but it seemed a bit out of maintenance.
There is a small fountain in the middle of the inner garden. I saw guests sitting around it and having a tea break in the evening. It looked so peaceful. The town itself is also very quiet and tranquil.
Budget & Service
For one night, it costs about 250,000 cop + tax. It depends on the season, but I guess it’s the average price all year around. I paid a bit more than 330,000 cop including the dinner in the previous night.
All staffs were very attentive, but the service was quite slow. It’s a quite big hotel but there is not many staffs at least when I stayed.
