HOTEL REVIEW # 176 Grand House

MY TRAVEL STYLE: If possible, I try to stay away from business hotels and strongly prefer resorts that resemble the Four Seasons, Aman, and Oberoi but try to find similar properties at lower cost. I seek out the “wow” experiences and I encourage you to view hotels I have stayed at and their respective reviews (by clicking on my name).

LOCATION: Very good. About 4 blocks from Parque 93, with tons of restaurants and bars. Being a little bit away from the park is a plus to keep it a bit more quiet. There area is very safe even thought arriving at night made the place seem a bit creepy at first (because you don’t realize how good the neighborhood is until walking around).

BEST WAY TO GET THERE: At the airport, go to the taxi window and get a print out of the exact amount to pay the registered airport taxi. The cost was $18,500 COP and took about 15 minutes.

TYPE OF ROOM: 

Suite. Tons of space. The living room area had a couch that was not in view of a TV.

BED/SHEETS/PILLOW: The bed was way too hard but the linens and down pillows were excellent. I didn’t like that there was no sheet. Just a blanket wrapped in a sheet.

LIGHTING: Excellent in all rooms and common area.

BATHROOM/SHOWER: Huge Jacuzzi tub. The shower is in the tub which I am not a fan of. The shower had excellent water pressure and can be made very hot if desired.

TOILETRIES: L’Occitane.

CLEANLINESS: Spotless.

A/C: There was no A/C in the room and our room got uncomfortable hot. This is a major drawback and the reason for losing one star.

CLOSET SPACE: Walk in closet in the bathroom is huge.

STYLE OF ROOM: Stylish, but lacking any color.

COMMON AREA: Stylish, but could use some color other than grays and blacks. There really isn’t an area in the hotel to hang out as the lobby area is small.

QUIET/MORNING LIGHT: We could hear music off in the distance (we stayed on a Saturday night). Morning light could be blocked with the curtains.

FOOD: Breakfast was buffet style with high quality breads, cereals, juices. Not much hot food.

TV/INTERNET: Wireless was very fast and at no charge. Didn’t watch TV but the position was awkwardly high in position to the bed.

SERVICE: Excellent. The staff spoke English and they went out of their way to provide great service. Hiring the hotel car at 20,000 COP per hour is a great way to get around.

SUMMARY: Great stay and a true bargain at US$118 for a Saturday night stay on hotels.com (for a standard room). At this price it’s a find. A better bed and some A/C and this would be a 5 star TA review for sure.

Recently stayed at Grand House for a business meeting. I found the rooms to be clean, modern and spacious. The hotel offered free internet and breakfast. The rooms come with a flat panel TV and Direct TV, however, I was never able to get the TV to work in my room (I didn't bother to complain about this because I spent so little time at the hotel).

This hotel is gorgeous. It was brought to my attention by a client of mine during a previous stay in Bogota. Rooms are spacious and include a large sitting area with a private door to the master bedroom. It has two restrooms and a small kitchenette. The master bathroom is large and the shower includes a whirlpool tub. The master bedroom has a very comfy king size bed and a large Plasma. Wireless internet is included.
Buffet breakfast is included in the rate and I must say it is delicious. Room service was ok, you are better of walking a couple of blocks to the Parque 93.
I will stay here again for sure.

Grand House is Amazing

I"ve been meaning to write this for quite some time. I went to Bogota Christmas week 2008. This was my thrird trip to Colombia that year. I had stayed in big international hotels - pricey and impersonal, and local 3 star business hotels - quaint, but lack style and amenities...

Grand House is a classic Boutique Hotel, mid-sized (64 rooms), with excellent decor, style and service. The rooms are large, the beds are large, the down comforter is large, the jacuzzi is large. Everything is clean and crisp. Attention to detail is everywhere - the French shammpoo, the olive oil soap etc....

Staff is efficient and friendly. The breakfast room is inviting and "designy" to say the least. The breakfast is excellent, and that is saying something in a country with some of the best breakfasts in the world!!!!!

There are subtle art touches everywhere. Some in the garage even. One comment was made about the two towers and walking through the garage to get to the back tower. The garage is impeccably clean and houses some fine cars, and is secured - a note of good standing in this city.

The hotel is located in a neighborhood called Chico (sic), which is close to everything. I was able to walk to parks, and the Zona Rosa, major shopping centres (Andino) etc...a cab to the Canadian embassy was 10 minutes.

This hotel is a gem. Well situated, priced right ($90-100 per night), with modern minimimalist decor.

The staff even sent for a car to take me to the airport as it can be hit or miss with some of the taxis in this city.

It's now MY hotel when I go to Bogota.

I'm a very particular traveler and the GRAND HOUSE Hotel was absolutely PERFECT. The staff was most helpful and they went the extra mile to make sure we were both comfortable. The property is located in northern Bogota...about a 45 minute taxi ride from the downtown part of Bogota. The GRAND HOUSE HOTEL is around the corner from Dann Carlton! This hotel was better than the Dann Carlton in Barranquilla! There are only 60 suites and that made for a very safe and tailored/catered stay. We were there for almost two weeks and I felt completely at home! The staff is very professional, helpful, and they take pride in their jobs! The Hotel even loaned us pots & pans & dishes so that we could cook our own meals in our suite! The rooms are cleaned and restocked daily and EVERYONE was very nice and gracious to us. The Hotel is EXTREMELY secure and the restaraunt is quite nice and staffed with a highly committed staff! The restaraunt cuisine and room service is excellent! There is a bountiful breakfast buffet included with stay!!!! The General Manager (Mauricio) made an effort to introduce himself and make sure our stay was superb! The hotel is in walking distance from EVERYTHING you might need. Very closed to Carulla (grocery store) and stores & restaraunts. There was even a stand on corner for empanadas and arepas! We plan on returning again and again for future trips. I feel we made family with the staff! Other great highlights: comfortable king size beds, jacuzzi tub, soft thick bath robes, private terrace on second floor, very quiet and good clean safe neighborhood, 20 minutes from US Embassy & airport, staff spoke english, free and plentiful business center/internet service, currency exchange, security guards, private taxi drivers, extremely modern, clean, and European! This Hotel is perfect for business travel, romantic getaways, and travelers of all ages. We were greeted/presented with a fresh fruit plate & a bottle of champagne when we arrived! There is also a fabulous SPA with a sauna Turco & a dry sauna! Just a lovely boutique hotel that made it enjoyable to be in Bogota! Hola a los dos Julios, Javier, & Julieth!!!
