Hotel El Paisaje
This small hotel is located in the most photogenic street of Guatapé and we highly recommend the rooms with balcony, which overlook that street.
The rooms are small but have everything you need to spend a couple of days and breakfast is included in the price of the room although it is served in a cafeteria next to the malecón.
