First of all many have commented on the neighborhood, so our expectation was that it would be out of the way on a scary street. Well, the street does have its' moments, but it is 1/2 block to the liveliest street in the City--always chock full of people doing all sorts of things. Instead of, as some suggest, being badly located, I found this hotel to be very well located--close to almost everything and close to the real pulse of Bogota. I wouldn't have traded it for some quiet old town type hotel for anything. Also, it is very close to the University of the Andes, which is the top university in the country. That being so, there is always a place to go late at night for pizza or other college type food with lots of smart kids walking around. We loved the arepas on the street, however, and could get them at the corner. We were also within easy walking distance of the Macarena District (best restaurants), Mount Montserrat, the best shopping arcades in the City, a few really nice Juan Valdez cafes, the museums etc. etc. In other words, you couldn't do better for a central location. We were careful, as cautioned (everywhere in Colombia), but sticking to the busy streets seemed to do the trick. I did not take a taxi the entire stay, and the only time I felt afraid at all was walking quiet streets at night from La Macarena.
As others have noted (and look at the photos), the building itself is drop dead gorgeous, newly rebuilt, and is very quiet. Having the City at your feet is handy because you will probably want to go out a lot just to get some social contact. But when it comes to sleeping, showers, breakfast etc. etc. the place is great. The staff is very friendly and when we left, I realized how much I had enjoyed them. I am so glad we stayed here and will again.
