We spent 2 nights on this nice hotel. They receive us with free cofee and a cleany room. They helped us to find a minivan and we could go to Zipaquira catedral, they picked up at the door and everything was organized for us. You can cook if you want on a luxury kitchen and there is a rooftop top... More

The staff at Casa Platypus are exceptionally helpful and friendly, particularly Roman. They go out of their way to make you fell welcome and help you to navigate the city. It's a charming establishment that the owner obviously takes great care in keeping up. Our favorite part was the rooftop terrace and delicious breakfast with other travelers. Would have given...

Travelling through Colombia is always easier with a few days climatisation at Casa Platypus. The beds are the most comfortable I have stayed in and the central location gives you access to the Museo Dóro and the Craft markets safely. Candelaria is a great area to be in and the staff at Casa Platypus do everything they can to help... More

The staff were helpful even before I reached (look at their website) and responsive with their emails. The same when we arrived - very helpful overall. If you have a doubt, email the staff and they can help you figure it out. Short taxi to/from the int'l airport (27K pesos and maybe 20-mins). Location: Across the street from the bus... More

This place has a lot of character and is well located in La Candeleria. The room was quite small with not so much space for our luggage, but very clean though. There was no heater so it was a bit cool, but ok once you get under the big blanket. The shower was very hot and powerful. The staff was... More

This is my absolute favorite hotel in Bogota in the Candelaria district. I have stayed here twice, once for a few days and then for about a week with my husband last year. The staff went above and beyond every single day of our stay. A huge thanks especially to Daniel, Lorena, Roman, and Carlos.They are just the nicest, hospitable... More

Casa Platypus is the first hotel we stayed on our Colombia trip. This is a small hotel. Situated in the centre of Bogota. Nearby is the university so one encounters students everywhere. I went out early in the morning & the area was busy with students hurrying about. The architecture in this area is also interesting. This hotel is convenient... More

The highlight of my time in Bogota was staying in Casa Playtpus in the Candelaria district. The hotel is light, clean, organized, refreshing, and the staff are very helpful and reliable. Rooms are very comfortable, with great showers. Breakfast upstairs was wonderful - fresh cooked eggs with tomatoes, toast with jam, terrific coffee (or tea) and fresh fruit. The location... More
