Be aware! Horrible place. Noise and unpolite crowd. Small room, very small bathroom without real hot water. Long line for a poor breakfast (still the same, scrumbled eggs, if it is not already finished). More problems: somebody of the crowd stohol money from my room, no way to get it back. Warmly unrecommended!

This hotel is much different from photos. I arrived here at night and the near by is very dangerous and ugly And we asked for towels and they didnt have more!!! So if you want to stay in this place, you should bring your own towel or you will need to dry yourself with your clothes!! Also the breakfast is... More

Great location close to the heart of Bogota. Friendly and helpful staff. Despite arriving way before check-in time they've done whatever they could to accommodate us early. Room was nice, clean and big enough for 2 people, bed/pillows very comfortable. The only downside for me was the noise coming from restaurant/reception as windows from our room were just above those... More

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
