You have to pay in advance even when supported by credit card, room and specially small bath, NO ECOFRIENDLY waste to much water and noisy room from inside and out

Reviewed 14 December 2010

I have made many trips to Bogota and have stayed in 5 or 6 different hotels during my visits. Virrey Park gets my award for best value. It's a solid hotel, nicely decorated with a friendly staff. The location is fantastic as you're between Park 93 and the T zone. If you're concerned about safety (I think people go overboard on it because of Bogota's past), there is a police station across the street. The elevator they have is worth one night's stay. You'll feel like you've gone back in time to Europe 80 years ago.

Pluses:

- Rooms are nicely decorated with comfortable beds and sheets. I've noticed that many hotels in Bogota cut corners on the mattress quality. Not here, I've slept soundly every night.
- Staff is friendly. The bellmen in particular are extremely nice and always say hello.
- Location is fantastic. You can walk to anything and there is a Carulla (grocery store) 2 blocks away.
- Nightlife in the area is good but it can be noisy up until 9:30 or 10:00.
- The price is fantastic. Shop around as different sites offer this hotel at different prices.
- Hotel is next to a park (thus the name). You can go for a nice walk and it's relatively quiet.

Minuses
- Hotel is on 15th Avenue which is one of the more heavily traveled roads. Colombian vehicles do not adhere to the same pollution standards that you would see in Europe or the US so the pollution can be a bit shocking.
- While breakfast is included with your stay (very common in Bogota), the selection is very thin, especially with the fruits offered.
- Yes, the rooms are small but for a single traveler (or a romantic couple), it's fine. It doesn't bother me but for some people, I can see that they would not be happy with the room size.

Overall, I have enjoyed my stay here very much. When you weigh price, location and amenities, the hotel is clearly a very good value. When I compare this to other hotels that are priced similarly, Virrey Park clearly wins.

I stayed there on a business trip for 4 days.

The stay was wonderful. The best part about the stay was its staff. Very friendly, most understood english. You could trouble them at any hour of the day and they would still be all helpful and smiling, willing to help.

The rooms were plush as well. But here is a word of caution. For the same price, the size and type of the rooms vary. We were three people, and all of us got various varieties of room. One got a nice Hillside view, one got 2 balconies, while the third got a very small room. Even the sizes of the rooms vary. So make sure you get the best available room.

The restaurant is nice too. The hotel is situated next to a big park, where you can go for walks or a jog. It is about 15min away from a couple of malls as well.

Overall a great experience.

This is the former Hotel Charlotte. It's a good choice for the north of bogota since it is right between the Zona Rosa and park 93. It's clean, but rooms are small. Some have only interior windows, so look at the room before you take it. Friday night a disco plays loud music, but the hotel staff was so great they changed our room.
