Hotel La Plazuela is a colonial style mid-range property close to Popayán's beautiful main plaza.

With an excellent location close to the exquisite main square in Popayán, Hotel  Plazuela occupies an attractive building with white stucco walls and  inner courtyards. It's is a popular hotel choice among European visitors.

The 18th century property has a prestigious history: built by a notable Spanish colonist as his residence; over the years distinguished visitors lodged here.  At the end of the 19th century, it was the home of the parents of the Ecuadorian ex-president Carlos Arroyo del Rio. There have been changes over the years, not least as a result of earthquake damage but  restorations have maintained a rigorous attachment to its original shape and colonial style.

The hotel has two patios, the guest rooms at the front have windows onto the street with views over the street while others face the patios and are a bit quieter. The rooms themselves are furnished and decorated in contemporary-classic style. There's a restaurant serving cuisine typical of the Cauca region of Colombia. 

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

"Another fantastic hotel! We enjoyed dining outdoors under the thatch roof. Howler monkeys woke us at 4am....a real experience. Canoes were available and we paddled towards town. Bird watching at 6am with Miguel was amazing - we saw 23 types of birds including the Ferruginous Pygmy Owl and the black headed Trogon!"
