We chose the book Hotel because of good review in the Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. Reasonably sized rooms, with hot water, good sized TV, and excellent breakfast. The staff were unfailingly helpful. No AC in the room, but it was not needed as even in June, it was not too hot at night. The only things to be aware... More

I decided that on this trip to Bogota I wanted to stay in Chapineros, a nice part of Bogota, but not so nice so that one is removed from the flavor and action of the city. Our company uses an agency that are experts in hotels in Bogota, and per my criteria they selected The Book Hotel. I've been here... More

Stayed 4 days in February. Ask for a room on the interior court (very quiet) if you are sensitive to noise as the road facing ones are a bit noisy. Modern facilities, well equipped. Nice showers. Simple but nice breakfast included. Staff was very helpful. I would stay again.

We stayed at The Book hotel for almost a week in January 2014. Like the previous reviewer the hotel around the corner we planned to stay at (High st hotel) has closed, so we ended up here by default. The room we stayed in was very spacious, although there is no air conditioning in the room and it became quite... More

I wound up here by chance, The original hotel booking I made around the corner had gone sour. (They went out of business and never told me!) While in the taxi I noticed this place and asked to be dropped off here. The desk clerk that morning welcomed me and explained their rates (Much better than the out of business... More

I am anxiously counting the days until my return trip to Colombia and my stay at the Boutique Alma. I was there a few months ago and was very impressed with the hotel again, as has always been the case. The hotel is located on a quiet street (for Bogota) in a beautiful and historic building. Each room is unique... More
