The best asset of this hotel is its location, in Usaquén tourist district in Bogota. I have stayed in this hotel many times, and I have witnessed how it is deteriorating through time. It is true that the last time I got a very good rate, but I am tempted not to stay here anymore. The hotel is clean, but... More

the restaurant looks like an old kitchen, the food is really poor, the bar is like a domestic bar with poor drinks selection and for example whisky was served in plastic glass.... the rooms are about 16 square meters, the bathroom is really small, your knees hit the wall when you sit on the toilet it is next to 7...

This is a very well located hotel, not just the location near malls and restaurants but the hotel it self is very nice. The customer service is very good and all my needs were met by the staff, I am a very happy customer and will continue to stay here in the near future!!

This is cool for a night max. Thin walls, pretentious front desk and no food walkable nearby. There area is safe area for sure, but there's nothing to do. The rooms are like caves, as they skimp on the bulb wattage, giving off just enough light to not stub your toe.

It's a very bad place with a very bad sense of "customer service", they don't even know the meaning of the phrase. Four stars????? NO WAY!!!!!! Not even two. Breakfast was scrambled eggs, two types of sliced bread and some fruit...that was it...ah, and some reheated food from the day before which they called "calentao", which literally translates into "reheated"....

Let's begin by saying that the front desk staff knows very little English, later we found out that there is a fee that you have to pay for AFTER you made your reservation online because you did your reservation online (re-read if it doesn't make sense) It didn't make sense to me either. The room had the smallest windows I... More

I spent a night on a business trip about 16 months ago and thought the place was good back-a-days. Well, I now have to say it's not as good any more. It used to be a "great potential" place and it turned into a "you get what you pay for" type of place. So why didn't I like it this... More

Unless you have an unlimited budget, there are three things we look for in a Hotel: Clean, Comfortable and Affordable. Some say two out of three isn't bad but if your on a business trip, you need to get a good night's sleep and for my wife and I, the Hotel Santa Barbara fell way short in the comfort department....

I'm not picky but I'm not going back to this hotel. the check in took about half an hour, I was in a rush for a meeting with wrinkle clothes and no body could help. Checking out was as slow and painful as checking in. Clean place, nice washroom, quiet and comfy bed but seriously no iron?
