“Ideal location, well run hotel”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

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.

Room Tip: I'd ask for a room that looks over the park.

I have passed this hotel many times all the years I have traveled to Bogota. This is my first stay here. I will list all the positives and negatives of this location:
POSITIVES - Location, Maintenance (not a new property but well maintained), CLEAN (place was really clean), TV (Samsung 32), Fridge (small fridge in room), Breakfast (decent breakfast and the coffee was really good, a miracle for a hotel restaurant).
NEGATIVES - Check In Service (I checked in about 11:30pm, NO ONE in Reception only bellboy, the Reception Clerk was at their "sister hotel" about a block away. I had to stand around for about 15 minutes at that hour for the receptionist to show up), Heat/AC (NO central ac/heat, which in Bogota you do need heat, this made my room chilly), Towels were Not replaced by the maid the following day I had to ask for them, Telephone (telephone in my room did not work I had to have it replaced), TV Channels (very few channels), Bed Room and Bathroom are really small (IBIS size maybe smaller).

Conclusion - Because of location and that it was really clean, I will give them another opportunity next time in Bogota.

Room Tip: Ask for room NOT facing the park next to the hotel.

We are staying here now. It's right next to the park and in a VERY safe neighborhood. The rooms are good value for the money. The breakfast is ok. You are right on a main road and in between the park 93 area ( 5 minute walk ) which is where a lot of restaurants are and bars in a very god neighborhood and you are also 5 minute walk to zone T where there are also a ton of restaurants and bars. You couldn't ask for a safer more central location. The girl at the front desk ( Valeria ) is fantastic. Also of note if needing a taxi from the airport which I would highly recommend (costs about $23 US arrange it through the hotel. Ask for the driver Henry who they work with amongst others. I don't speak spanish but my fiancee does and Henry is probably the best driver you will ever have especially if you speak spanish. He totally takes pride in what he does and is the best ambassador for Colombia. Even if you don't speak spanish he's great just because you know you can trust him and he will take you where you need to go. But if you speak spanish also Henry is worth triple what you pay so make sure you tip him well. He should be a tour guide. The 30 minute ride from the airport to the hotel he gave my fiancee tips on everything about Bogota to do and what to watch out for.

Valeria ended up calling him for us and arranging him to drive us to the Salt Cathedral the next morning on short notice. It was about $90 US and it was literally about 5 hours or so to there and back not including admission. Again Henry made a bunch of stops along the way for us to take pictures and he gave us practically the entire history of Bogota and everything we were seeing along the way ( again in spanish ) and it was an absolute pleasure having him drive us. Again he should be a tour guide. And again make sure you tip well because $90 for 2 people for 5+ hours is an absolute steal because you aren't just getting a driver but a tour guide and also someone you know you can absolutely trust in case anything unforeseen happened.

So I would absolutely recommend this hotel. Credit to the hotel for the staff they hire like Valeria and for the people they work with like drivers like Henry.

If you are going to Bogota you want to be in a safe place where you can walk at night and be close to everything. This is the place.

Also there is a Juan Valdez cafe downstairs and an armed security guard always at the door.

Would definitely stay here again

We stayed at the adjacent sister hotel Bogota Virrey (please add it to trip advisor). It was great value for money and great location for business and fun, by the Zona Rosa an Zona T. The service was outstanding, particularly the bell boys. Beds were good, and rooms practical (nothing great but good value). In general, I would come back and recommend the hotel anytime.

Stayed at Virrey park for 4 nights, can't praise the reception staff enough as they were so friendly and did their utmost to try and help with all the queries I had. Their Engilish wasn't that good but despite this they made every effort to sort out my queries to the best of the knowledge.
Great location the famous Bogota Beer Company (BBC) is only round the corner less than 5 mins walk. Just up the road from BBC is the up scale Zona T shopping area with many bars and restaurants. Zona R another exclusive area with good restraunts appox 20 mins by walking. Park 93 which has a great atmosphere in the evening with many restraunts and bars is about 5 blocks away and will take you to 10 mins to walk there.

Room Tip: Choose the presidential suite on the 5th floor facing the park as these rooms are located at the bac...

Virrey Park is par of a chain managing a 5 stars hotel on the opposite side of the park, 2 3/4 stars in the sourroundings, a furtner 4(¿) stars downtown. This is probably the reason why details aré a must, hand finished sheets, good overall cleaniness, excellent utilization of the - limited anyway - space, a prompt and gentle answer to any request you can have. I appreciated food in the restaurant, italian cuisine, beyond pastas ( pervivan ceviche, steaks tasted very good and reasonably priced), workers aré quite professional and happy in their job. In the opinión of this modest very frequent world traveller virrey park is a well managed hotel. The worse was my bathroom with no window, (don"t know wat about different rooms). The best, if you want to leave a tip, then you to have to cal them back. They gone.
