I spent 10 days in Bogota and started out in an apartment near the financial district, then moved north to Zona Rosa for several days, and then moved 5 blocks further north finally to this comfortable, well-run hotel alongside Virrey Park. Zona Rosa is a bit busy and noisy with nightclub traffic and so on, This area is more relaxed and the park is lovely, It feels perfectly safe by day and okay by night and it's an easy 5 block walk from Zona Rosa for eating or walking or shopping there. The restaurant at the hotel was good and well priced (Italian), there's a Juan Valdez coffee shop on the street, and an ice cream/frozen yogurt stand alongside the park. The room was clean and comfortable with a little balcony (common to all the 2nd floor rooms on that side) that looked out over the park. The internet worked well and there was good hot water. Walking or hanging out in the park is great and relaxing, it's easy to get a taxi right on Carrera 15 (or have them call), and it's not really very far from most places of interest. The price is excellent for the value - it's a four star hotel for a three star price, and the staff is friendly and responsive. I speak Spanish, but many of the staff have a degree of English, as several of them started out with me in English. If I was going back to Bogota next month, or next week, I would stay here again.
