“Very nice, just a bit noisy”
Reviewed 27 October 2008

This is a very new and modern hotel. Chic decor, pleasant colors, designer bathroom. We liked it very much. They provide free pick-up from the airport; a driver was waiting for us right outside baggage claim holding a sign with my name. Check-in at the hotel was quick. A porter showed us to our room, explained how things worked and left without expecting or motioning for a tip. We like very much how tipping is not so customary in South America: people should not depend on generosity for their livelihood.

The beds were very comfortable with crisp linen. The room had a large closet, a work desk, a flat-screen TV, a safe, a refrigerator/minibar with extra space for own items.

The bathroom was very nice except that a significant amount of space on the counter around the sink was taken up by toiletries and water that were offered on sale: toothbrush, toothpaste, razor and such. There were ample towels and very good pressure of hot water at all times.

WiFi internet access was free with a code provided by the porter.

The one thing that was disappointing was the soundproofing. The hotel is on a busy road and the windows failed miserably in blocking the traffic noise.

Breakfast was free and very good indeed, including eggs cooked to order. Strangely, we were asked to authorize a 1,000 Peso tip each. We've never encountered anything like that. No worries, though, that's only about 50 cents U.S...

The location is a bit removed from the city center, but that really wasn't a problem. Taxis are inexpensive, and we also used the many buses that connect the area to the city center. These buses cost 1,200 peso, about 60 cents U.S. Local riders were very happy to tell us where to get off for the places we wanted to visit.

There is a great grilled chicken restaurant just a short walk from the hotel - highly recommended.

If ever again in Bogota, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again, but would ask for a room facing away from the busy road.
