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

We stayed at Ambar hotel for 3 nights because we are very laid back people. The first hour in the room I went to the bathroom while my husband went to get some food and got trapped in there. There was no knob at the door but there was a latch. Thank goodness my husband came back soon or God... More

Me and my partner arrived in Bogota late in the evening. We wanted somewhere safe to stay for our first night in Colombia. We got a taxi to the hotel and were told at reception we had not made a reservation and there were no longer any rooms available. I showed the male behind reception our booking confirmation along with... More

Fabulous great hotel to stay! Beautiful rooms, spacious and super clean. Gorgeous bathrooms with hot showers and great pressure. We had a small patio outside our room which was delightful. The rooms at the front tend to be a bit noisey but very bearable. The staff cannot speak English, but they try VERY hard to communicate and are always smiling,... More

My internet research, produced a sweet deal through despegar.com and booking. com of 154.COP for a 3 night four day stay. I walked to Ambar and negotiated the internet price of COP 154 with Valeria, She spoke english and was very helpful with translating with the non english speaking staff at the hotel. Valeria was nice enough to include a... More

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 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
