The Ambar Hotel is the most welcoming hoyel i've ever into. The people are wonderful, very nice and dedicated. Also the breakfast are very nice. The location in the center is awesome and the cleaning in the room is flawless. Ive been in here twice and will repeat without doubs.

Ambar is a very comfortable hotel, the personal is really kind and respectful. It is good to spend some days in Bogota and travel around the city. It is also very clean and the beds are comfortable...

We liked this location - very short walk to the historical center, however, unsafe walking at night. We stayed there 3 nights, liked very friendly staff, especially Carolina who helped us out with info on public transportation, restaurants, etc. in Spanglish. The room was small but clean.

It was very good location, close to the historic center. The room was a bit cold with the windows leading to the courtyard so it did not get plenty of fresh air, rather, no air at all. Dark was in there too. At night it froze up because there was only a thin blanket. Inside the room there was no... More

I am on the fence about this hotel. What I liked: location (close to museums and main plaza), beautiful patio, hot water shower with great water pressure, kind front desk staff. What I didn't like: the breakfast was almost insulting. For your included breakfast you get: 1 or 2 pieces of bread, some eggs, jam and butter and 1 (one)... More

I just spent 6 nights at the Anbar Hotel in Bogota. The first room I had was so small I couldn’t handle it. There was no desk, no closet, and not even a chair. The hotel did agree to bring in a coat rack, and small desk and chair. Felt like I was in a small hospital room or a... More

My friend and I had a terrible experience at this hotel. The room was very run down and smelled Terrible. They amenities listed on the website were not provided. In addition, as two young females traveling we did not feel safe leaving the hotel/walking around this neighborhood after dark. We ended up communicating with a family friend from Bogota and...

This hotel is located in the heart of the Candelaria.Rooms are very small but clean.It is a cheap hotel in a nice location(if you want to be in the Candelaria).Internet is there and fast but there is no chair,closet or anything to hang your clothes in the room.You get exactly what you pay for.

Imagine a woman at 9 p.m. in that sector.... I had reservation for other 5 days, and I decided to cancel the booking, that they said they didn´t have.... More
