A grand, stately hotel that evokes the rich colonial history of Popayan, the Hotel Dann Monasterio sits at the heart of the historic, old town just metres away from the central plaza and Museum of Religious Art.
Once part of a Franciscan monastery that dated back to the 1570’s, the hotel has been beautifully restored. Elegant cloisters encircle a large, cobbled terrace amidst well- tended gardens and a tinkling fountain while inside, the hotel exudes formal elegance with classic period décor and artwork.
There are 47 traditional rooms and suites, many of which occupying the original monks’ cells. All are perfectly in keeping with the historic ambiance yet in addition feature the standard mod-cons including flat-screen TV’s and internet access. A number of rooms boast a private terrace overlooking the courtyard.
There are generous communal areas including the Campanario Restaurant, the height of refined elegance, which serves a mix of regional and international cuisine.
Additional facilities include a gym, steam room, spa and large pool ringed with sun-loungers – the only hotel in Popayan with an outdoor pool as they are proud to claim!
The Hotel Dann Monasterio is the most comfortable hotel in town and the epitome of Popayan with its a heady feast of colonial history. The service is rather formal and the rooms on the cosy side yet the setting is second to none right at the heart of town.
