#21 of 65 in Villa de Leyva
At the Hotel Molino la Mesopotamia we have a centenarian wheat flour mill and a mystic and majestic water spring in a fourth hundred years old colonial house, embellished with fossils, art, beautiful gardens and landscapes. But above all we have the joy of being part of the happy memories of the customers and families who have chosen to stay with us over fifty years. Thank you for accompanying us in our journey.

We have never stayed at the Mesopotamia, but its Manantial, or spring-fed swimming pool, is outstanding and unique in Villa de Leyva. It was not open to the public in past years, but is now open daily from 8 to 5, 12,000 COP per day per person. There are changing rooms and bathrooms, and a shower- bring a towel. You can borrow an inner tube at the reception desk. It is rustic, the pool is slippery, the water is on the cold side, you will want to bring your bug spray, but this is a must-do in Villa, swimming in the clear fresh water flowing from the mountain is magical, and so relaxing, the pool is incrusted with fossils, surrounded by nature, restorative. Go!

This old estate holds a secret in its back: a swimming pond with water so fresh tthat naturally flows from the mountains. Swimming there is...hard to express with words, it's being imersed in very clean fresh water. Just because of that and because of the kindness of the people who run the business, I recommend this place, but don't expect much of the rooms in terms of comfort: the rooms are small, the furniture is old and by all means, do not expect flat screen TV or a dock for your i Pod. Don't bother having breakfast there because within a few blocks you'll find fantastic bakeries and cafes that will wow you. Just take it as a retreat, absolutely calm and peaceful. Oh, and people there treat you with love. That counts much to me.

OK, so the location is good if you want peace and quiet but the facilities and service do not match the price. This is a very old hotel, but a few quid spent on maintenance would make the world of difference. The mattress on the bed was well past its sell by date and I spent the night fighting an uphill battle. See some of my photos to understand my comments, especially the mouldy shower. After waiting 20 minutes for the young lad to serve us coffee on our first morning we realised we had made a big mistake. The breakfast was certainly not 'superb' as mentioned in advertising. The young lad serving us had his mobile 'phone permanently attached to his ear.... On the second morning we walked into the village for breakfast on the basis that it was quicker to get a coffee there than waiting for service at the hotel. For some reason the owners seem to think that they can let the place run down and still charge guests silly prices. There is a lot of choice in Villa de Leyva; check out what is available before booking here.

We are sorry that you had such an unpleasant experience and we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We do consider this 400 hundred years old house to be very beautiful and we will work hard to give a service that matches its beauty. We understand that you won't consider staying ever again with us, however, please do feel free to come and visit us. We are certain that this house, with its gardens and water spring, it's worth at least a slow walking thru. Warmest regards, Molino la Mesopotamia

In our fast-changing world, there are not many places that never seem to change at all. The Hosteria del Molino de la Mesopotamia ist one of those few gems, that haven´t changed at all in over 40 decades. Let´s hope it remains like this.
