Behind a magnificent wooden doorway, this 17th-century whitewashed colonial mansion is a sophisticated labyrinth of tasteful rooms, intimate sitting areas, and outdoor spaces that triumph the art of relaxation. Beautifully appointed rooms are scattered with Colombian artworks (including an original Botero), artifacts, and books from convivial owners Sergio and Gustavo’s personal collection. The overall look is sleek and modern, with an artful balance of elegant dark-wooden furnishings, crisp white linens, and flowing drapes. Rooms are not huge, so for families with children it’s worth upgrading to the two-bedroom/bathroom suites. The small rooftop terrace has a pool where you can take a cooling dip while taking in the views of the cathedral tower.
