Smoke-Free Spaces in Colombia

Smoking is prohibited inside the hotel rooms (law 1335/09, Ministry of Social Protection). In Colombia, there is legislation on smoke-free spaces due to negative impacts on the health of people. For this reason, in indoor spaces of the hotel, smoking is not allowed. The hotel has outdoor spaces delimited for smokers. Our rooms are considered indoor spaces, therefore smoking is not allowed. Any guest who fails to comply with this consideration, must pay the value of one (1) night of accommodation, at the contracted rate; corresponding to the cleaning, disinfection and deodorization of the room and their elements, such as sheets, pillows, towels, cushions, etc.
