“Comfort business trip”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

The hotel is conveniently located near a park with shops and restaurants nearby. The internet service really works, what makes it my favorite hotel to stay when I am on a business trip. The breakfast is good and it was included in my rate. As a great convenience to the guest, the airport transfer can be arranged at the hotel. Rooms are modern and comfortable.

Hotel is nicely located and staff is very friendly. The park is just in front of it and you can safely go jogging or for a walk. Internet was fast and breakfast ok.

But there were some details that would make this a Great hotel:

- It was pouring when I arrived and the guy with the umbrellas was protecting himself from the rain inside the lobby.

- My room was not done one of the days I was there. It appeared some random guy changed the sign I left in my door and they blamed me.

- My key stopped to work the day before I left. I had to go all the way up to my room, come down to the front desk and ask for the key to be activated again. They told that was the standard procedure. First time.

- Never had a menu on the room. A guy had to go to my room with a menu just for me to select my dish! - ????

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a view to the park

thank you for you comments; each of them help us to improve day by day.

From now we have already take care about the bellboy and the room; about the key card, it has nothing to do with your check out date; its a matter of fact of the magnetic band that deactivates with the contact or just been nearby any magnetic source. it is a common issue at the hotel that hope can be solved asap.
about the room service menu, we just changed the options and we hope to have the menu in 8 days, so when you came back, all these things will be solved and we can offer you a very pleasant stay.

My travel buddy and I stayed in this hotel on arrival to Bogota. We used it as a jump off prior to going to the coast. We organised a transfer from El Dorado to the hotel. Our journey started off a bit slowly when my friend's luggage didn't arrive. Our transfer waited for us thankfully - they added an extra fee on for the additional hour. Once we arrived at the hotel the service given to us was excellent. We were offered drinks - this is where the love affair with Club Colombia started. They checked us in and took all our bags up to the room. Our rooms were absolutely huge. Two double beds and plenty of space to move around. The toilet/shower was really clean and again very spacey. We decided the best way to overcome jet lag was to go to Andres Carne de Res DC and the reception organised a taxi for us. Breakfast is really good - so much variety. From our hotel we also headed to Monserrate, with a taxi organised by the hotel, Sr Gonzalez was the driver - really nice guy.

The only unfortunate thing was that the swimming pool was being maintained so the whole decking area was a work site. We still managed to go up and check the views at night.

Our hotel were great in being the point of contact for the deliver of the missing piece of luggage. I used the business centre to check in and the computers didn't seem to be working so I went to reception to ask if I was doing something wrong. One of the members of staff came to help but couldn't work out what was wrong either - credit to the staff - they didn't stop until the issue was resolved - this was the general attitude in the hotel - really good service - I cannot fault it.

I would definately recommend this hotel and would return in future.

We made our booking through booking.com and the reservation stated that a 16% charge would be added to the final bill however this applies only to residents or those that have been in the country for a longer period of time.

Room Tip: On reservation we asked for a room looking onto the park.

The hotel is conveniently located near Parque 93 with lots of shops and restaurants right nearby. The internet service is the best I have found at a hotel in Bogota which is really convenient on business trips. Breakfast was great and was included in my rate. The service is great and the taxi drivers from the hotel are really nice. Rooms are modern and comfortable. I notice one comment about them being too minimalistic but I thought they just seemed very modern and liked the design alot. Nothing was missing or anything. When I stayed there my room was very noisy but there was a huge road race going on all weekend that passed by the hotel. I don't think it would be an issue in the future and would definitely stay there again. Yes it's on a busy street, but I prefer that in Bogota rather than being outside of the city. Also, I speak Spanish so not sure of any difficulties staying there if you don't.

I recently stayed 3 nights at Cite Hotel on the suggestion of a co-worker. The hotel is in a central location, and offers reasonable hotel taxi service in Bogota, which is always a plus for me. Breakfast was included in my rate--fresh fruit, breads, eggs (scrambled, omelets, etc), juices, cereal. The bar area is also great for casual business meetings. The shampoos, lotions, soaps were l'Occitane--definitely better than what I find at most hotels. I have two criticisms--first, an iron/ironing board do not come standard in the room. More importantly, the walls are thin and my neighbor's loud tv kept me awake.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the highest floor possible toward the back of the hotel; there's lots of st...

we have irons and iron boards by request, and we will try in a short future to have one in each room so it will be better for our guests

The concept of the hotel is minimalism... But to my taste it looked like as if they ran out of money. Some spaces just empty, boring, cheap and have nothing to do with cool minimalism.
Each time the main door opens to a loud street you have the impression as if a bus just passed under your table in the restaurant.
The rooms were not very impressive either and looked the same: cheap in order to save money.
Breakfast opened at 6 in the morning. At 6 they were not ready, things still came out at 7... breakfast choices were not really extensive and the same: cheap.
I complained to the front desk. The anser was: but it is buffet! Well I did not really understand what he meant with this. Anyhow. We wanted to stay for a week and moved out after one night.

Buenas tardes Sr kauz
Estuve enterada de sus quejas y lo que tengo para decir es que el gusto y la estética son muy subjetivos y no es fácil que todos coincidamos en la misma opinión; me resta aclararle que afortunadamente no fue falta de dinero, sino un concepto propio de los arquitectos y diseñadores. Del ruido de la calle, es un tema externo de ubicación que obedece a estar ubicados en un punto central de la ciudad y el desayuno es un buffet de muchas opciones que de todas maneras revisaremos. Lamento que usted y su compañero hayan tenido un mal rato con el hotel, y espero que en el que decidieron alojarse los días restantes haya habido mas afinidad con su gusto.
