Casa Paulina is cheap and adequate, and that's what makes it good. The manager Doris, is very nice, and the rest of the staff are pleasant. They sincerely try to help you. The location is very convenient, being just 2 or 3 blocks from the transmilenio. Some might describe the neighborhood as sketchy. I can see why they would say that, but it is not a bad part of town. I felt perfectly safe there, though would probably not recommend a single girl to walk there alone at night. If I were to rank all the areas of Bogota, I would definitely put it in the top half in terms of safety.
The hotel itself is nothing to write home about, but it has everything you really need. Each floor has a little kitchen, and each room has a fridge. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and there are no bad smells. There are no frills. The pillows are bricks. The beds are too short for me (6'3"). The biggest downside is that the walls and doors are paper thin, so you can hear everything that happens outside of your room and in the room next to you. One guy wrote that when someone on your floor gets up, everybody gets up. That's pretty accurate. It's certainly not a place for a honeymooning couple. But for about $45 a room, you wouldn't expect that.More
