“Awful! Don't go near this hotel!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

This hotel is the worst that we've stayed in Colombia!
The service was awful, the rooms were not clean (we had to change a room because it was cigarette stinky), the spa didn't work our entire vacation, we didn't had hot water all the time and there were problems with the plumbing, the rooms are not AC in our stay it was freezing! the gym is not equipped (they don't have a running machine) , the breakfast was very low, the facilities in the hotel are old - far of what you see in the pictures on line, it is in a noisy location, the hotel is far from being a luxury.

Room Tip: Just Don't stay there...

Just spent 2 nights here with my family before flying home. Location is excellent, just on the edges of the Candelaria district and only a block or two from the Gold museuem. The hotel suites come with full kitchen and living room. The kitchen is sparsely (and oddly) stocked- while there are plates, cutlery, and a waffle maker, I didn't see a pot/pan. Rooms are extremely clean and the beds are pretty comfortable (sheets were really crisp and clean!)

Breakfast is fairly extensive offering cereals, yogurt, variety of fruit, toast and eggs.

Front desk clerks were friendly and helpful and allowed us a late checkout at 3 pm!

Overall atmosphere of hotel is somewhat stark and cold - hallways are tiled rather than carpeted; rooms are unadorned with pictures/art; Reminded me a bit of some of the hotels I stayed in Mainland China about 20 years ago. (Actually, come to think of it, many of the buildings in this part of Bogota reminded me of China about 20 years ago. The entire neighbourhood seemed to be in need of a good power washing.) Neighbourhood can be a little noisy at night; hotel does provide ear plugs in the night table.

This is not a boutique hotel and does not bill itself as such. Suited my family perfectly fine for the short while we were in Bogota. Would stay here again if ever in Bogota again.

Considering it's central location and the price this hotel is a good choice for a short stay. Close to many of the monuments, museums and tourist sites it could become a neat place with a little touch up and TLC in some rooms.
Breakfast is OK and the personnel is nice and very helpful.

Room Tip: Try to get a room above the 4th floor to avoid/limit street noise.

I was there for 3 nights and I really enjoyed my experience there. Its very close to the Cerro Montserrate, Guadalupe, very close to restaurants, supermarket.. The people are very friendly and very smiley, they help you with everything, I even got an adaptor for my laptop for free. The breakfast is great, everyday they prepare something different specific columbian... and they have so many fruits.. Its a small piece of heaven. Our room had even a small kitchen with almost everything that we needed to cook... But just didnt have time for the gym or sauna.
the negative part would be that our view wasnt quite a view, just a huge building and some normal buildings on both sides...

Had a very enjoyable stay here for three nights with family. Excellent location - Gold Museum is within easy walking distance. Spotlessly clean, simple, stylish rooms. Breakfast pleasant. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Small kitchenette allows you to prepare simple food and drinks if you need too. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms fronting the street are a little noisy. Inward-facing rooms are very quiet but a bit gloomy an...

This is not a four-star hotel, but for the price and location (very near the Macarena neighborhood, which is a great spot for foodies) it is a solid choice. Very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Not luxurious by any means - no fancy free toiletries or even soft towels - but good enough and cheap. And the desk staff were friendly and very competent (they handled dining reservations and a car service for the airport). The hotel also seemed quite secure - there were two guards, at least during the early evening.

My only complaint is that there is no central heat in the rooms, and Bogota gets quite cold. They do provide a space heater, but I was a bit afraid to leave it running all night and wake up on fire. I'm sure there's a way to deal with that though, if I took a little more time to play with the heater. My only other complaint was the total lack of a view (the room faced another room), but again at this price, you're not paying for the view.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room with a view.

This hotel is not 4 star by western standards - but I would rate it as a good 3 star. The rooms a designed as suites, but are really too small to be suites. I have never had such a tiny bathroom! Having said this the bed was comfortable and everything was very clean. The hotel is fairly central - but on the edge of the old city - which is not the recommended area for tourists to stay. I was working with the University del Rosario which is opposite the hotel and so the location was fine for me. Despite the locals being veyr concerned for the safety of foreign visitors, we did not at any time feel unsafe and the locals were very helpful and friendly.
