We booked a room for Ambar hotel via booking, catching a good offer they had. It was cheap - 15 dollars per person, per night. Surely though, the room we got was not one of the pretty ones that there were in the pictures, but a modest, plain room with no view at all (our only window was facing the... More

I had reservations to stay at the hotel this January as I had reviewed the hotel highly last year.\ Unfortunately the hotel, on the Internet, listed the wrong number and I called for days. I ALSO WROTE THEM THAT I COULD NOT CONTACT THEM WITH NO ANSWER. I called another hotel and they said that Ambar had changed their number... More

We stayed here one night after a late arrival in Bogota. It's a nice hotel, clean, decent rooms, and a reasonable price. A few things you need to know. The area is fine during the day, at night, it's not an area I would walk, in fact we didn't want to leave the hotel. If your arriving for a one... More

This place turned out to be way better than expected. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the location was within walking distance of so many great things. 24 hour front door staff watching over the place was a bonus for sure. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean and cozy hotel for a very low cost!!

They had a computer glitch that double booked the hotel. They found us a new place for the one night and for the price difference the taxis. Very friendly staff that speak English. Good location. Don't take a room on the street, but that is the same in any large city. Good value.

We stayed in June, 2013. Here are the things I think you should know about this hotel: - It is spotless! - It is affordable. At $40 USD/night (with a discount for paying in cash) this was easily the cheapest hotel we stayed in while on our trip to Colombia. - It is comfortable. Hot water (Bogota was quite chilly... More

I went back to the Hotel in March, 2013. While there, my credit cards and bank accounts were frozen. I did not know why and had to call the bank. I was not able to reach the number from the Hotel. I spoke to the Hotel staff and they told me to keep trying, that I was doing something wrong.... More

It is just one block from the carrera 7 tourist street and a 4 minute walk to the Museo de Oro. Wi Fi and breakfast are included at no additional cost. The staff... More

this will be a difficult review. The hotel , obviously, is making every effort to be excellent and I believe will be so shortly. I spoke with the manager about the lack of hangers and they are constructing them but the rooms are spotless and the beds are very very comfortable. The hotel is immacutately clean and the staff wonderful.... More
