I went there August 4, 2014, at night, other people in line, and they said they didn´t have my reservation I had in hand, and that they didn´t have rooms available. 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 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.
