Lonely Planet review

This stately early 20th-century colonial-style mansion is a Barrio Amón landmark that once belonged to the Salazar family of cafetaleros . Thirty rooms occupy the mansion itself and a newer annex in back. Mansion rooms are slightly frayed, with high ceilings and period furnishings, while newer rooms are equipped with brocaded bedspreads, modern bathroom, balcony and flat-screen TV. A garden courtyard contains a solarium, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and small open-air gym.
