I have to say it was an unplesant surprise to find they were overbooked and we had to wait and fight for a room. They were professional in at least looking and paying for other rooms at nearby hotels or furnished apartments, but since our case wasn't the only one, they were having a hard time.
I was lucky because a coupe who arrived earlier was given a twin bed room (2 small beds), which they declined and was then given to us, after an hour of waiting. Later, I met a close friend who coincidentially had booked two rooms (they were four people) who had exactly the same issue and at the end had to cramp into one room. I saw at least to more cases, which still puzzles me because their "excuse" was that some Corporate Clients had decided to stay longer and see the Soccer Game (It was Colombia's national team paying on that day!). It's a lousy excuse, but that's what they said
::: The place is well located and new, near the best all in town and most good restaurants and nightlife. I think they're clearly understaffed or simply not ready to have administration challenges. In our case, they gave us a discount because of the inconvenient and I think they handled it right. Good thing I was with my brother and not with someone else, because it would've been a bit more uncomfortable.
Guess I would't go back if it were a busy weekend, but because of the good, spacious and new rooms, I'd give it a shot. Having an apartment type of room (with a living room) is convenient, but not having a refrigerator at least of coffee machine, is something they should change.
