The Salento Real Hotel is located in the town of Salento in the Southern Highlands of Colombia. It takes about 5 hours on a bus south from Medellin to get there. When you get off in the town square you walk about five minutes up the main shopping street (there is only one), take a left on Calle 3 and it is there on the right. It is the only Hotel in the town

To lay your head

Hotel Salento Real has over 25 beautiful rooms, which are primarily located around a courtyard which has been magnificently designed. The hotel is only 6 months old and the rooms reflect that newness. The high ceilings and funky art work stand out against the stone cut walls and dark wood. The beds are large and super comfy. A maid service cleans the rooms daily, to really high western standards.
