“A wonderful unique hotel”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

We wholeheartedly agree with "GREAKLY" and his/her review. The Hotel Muisca is just a fantastic place to stay.It is in the Candelaria district of Bogota, which is the Old Town and is close to almost all the places one would want to visit on a trip to Bogota (and Bogota should be visited). The architecture and interior have been beautifully designed with each room based on a different aspect of the Muisca people. The place is spotless, the cleanest hotel we have ever experienced. There is a courtyard, a terrace, a sauna, a bar. Everything is modern but has an ethnic feel. And the service is unbelievably excellent. We were treated as friends. All the staff were caring and efficient. Twice we were escorted to local restaurants and at other times when we went to restaurants farther away the receptionist called the restaurant to make certain that a taxi was called for us to bring us back. An exception to other reviews: the staff with whom we worked did speak some English, at least to be able to understand what were our needs. And they have access to Google Translation so one can type in your questions in your own language and it is translated into Spanish.
This was truly a great experience for our anniversary.

Room Tip: all the rooms were excellent

What you see on the photos is true. This hotel is located in the recently restored Spanish colonial house. All rooms are brand new and are different one from another. They vary slightly in size and style of decoration. Entire hotel has a strong character, with every detail being meticulously thought about. Terrace on the top (third) floor has great views of the city.
A few things to keep in mind if you decide to stay here:
1. The hotel has three floors and no elevators. Most hallways are VERY narrow. So this hotel is definitely NOT suitable for handicapped folks.
2. Front desk, while being extremely helpful, doesn't speak a single word in English. You would need to learn a few basic Spanish expressions to be able to communicate with them.
3. Breakfast is VERY slim (juice, eggs, fruits, tea/coffee; no cheese or ham).
4. While the hotel itself is very secure (with locked fence and guard on duty), the area around it (the historic center, called "La Candelaria") is not so good. We've been advised by the hotel manager not to leave hotel after 8 PM or, should we decide to go anyway, leave all valuables at the hotel and carry only small change. It's OK to walk around during the day time though. So if you want to stay in the safest area of Bogota you should consider one of the hotels in the north of the city.
Overall, our stay in Hotel Muisca was excellent and I would strongly recommend it to anyone, as long as they understand the issues mentioned above.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
OUR HOTEL The first Theme Hotel on the Bogota's historic center is built after a careful restoration of a sustainable house with more than 200 years of history. The simplicity and functionality of the New Granada architecture are expressed in a modest front door with balcony and wood crafts, tiles and clay tiles, brick stone walls and santafereños patios decorated with railings, columns, windows, arches, fountains flowers and gardens. In this sense, the Hotel Muisca synthesized in its content and designs the colonial architecture and the ancient America, as an homage to Muisca-Chibcha nation that is part of the five great ancient cultures (Maya, Inca, Aztec and Jungle). OUR ROOMS The hotel consists of three levels with thirteen (13) rooms in Simple, Twin, Double accommodation and Groups from 3 to 6 persons. Amenities in our rooms are: unlimited free local calls and national and international collect calls, LCD TV 32" with cable TV, Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel, security box service, 24 hours room service to purchase products from the mini bar menu and conveniences menu, environmentally friendly heating in all rooms and common areas with fireplaces. SERVICES. Our Hotel has two patios, coffee, lounge, spa, terrace and permanent exhibition areas, all of which represents the Muisca territory, mythology and art. Moreover, the hotel has a great location in the traditional Candelaria District, an ancient holy place for the Muiscas ancestors which is now known as the epicenter of historic, economic, cultural and governmental center of the city, surrounded by parks, monuments, theaters, museums, churches, libraries, restaurants, bars and universities. Likewise, the Candelaria offers a unique atmosphere of tranquility and calm into the hectic life of a great city. ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN. Objects such as lamps, grills, pots, beds, tables, and others inspired by the Muisca art, have been uniquely designed to bring life to the hotel, and have been mixed with colonial elements carefully restored such as windows, balconies, doors, creating unique spaces who wish to generate interest in our visitors about our culture and history. Briefly, we offer a unique experience of wellness, culture and design. ... more   less
