The Opera is a small boutique hotel located close to the old town and near to many points of interest such as Bolivar Square, Tthe gold museum, The Botero museum, military museum, and city walking tours. If like me you are flying in from the UK you will arrive very early morning well before the designated check-in time of 3PM.... More

This hotel isn't fancy but is very authentic. The location makes up for any minor faults it may have. You can walk outside and walk all around La Candelaria for drinks and food and watching the locals. Food and drinks are very reasonable. The hotel has a bar which isn't always staffed but if you are patient they will find... More

Bogota stretches north and south over more than 100 streets and traffic can be a challenge. For this reason, we decided to stay each night in a different area so that we could walk around when we wanted, retire to the hotel when we'd had enough and group our sightseeing by area. On our arrival, we checked into this historic... More

Located in the heart of LA Candelaria, Bogota's old town, the hotel is probably the most authentic of bygone days in the area. Because it is old, there will be some deficiencies from more modern facilities. Nonetheless, my room was more than adequate, with modern fixtures and amenities. Staff is superb, with many breakfast choices. Would stay here again on... More

Best hotel on the block, hands down. This is by far the safest street/hotel in the area. Great bar, restaurant, sauna, pool and steam room. The gym is small but has everything you need - free weights, treadmill, bike, elliptical, etc. We had a suite - more room than we needed- the view was incredible!!! The bathroom was spacious and...

This is a pretty hotel in La Candelaria district of Bogota which is the historic quarter, so it is well located for visits to some of the City's main monuments and museums. Our room was in the old part of the hotel with its pretty courtyards and it was clean and comfortable. Wifi access was reasonable. Although it looked out... More

I stayed a couple of days in Hotel de la Opera which is extremely well located right in the heart of the center of Bogotá.

We spent 4 nights in the Hotel de la Opera and we would come back without hesitation. The location is perfect, in the old part of town. The traditional architecture of most of the hotel is beautiful. There is a spectacular view from the upper restaurant. The breakfast buffet has everything you might want from fruits, to warm dishes, to... More

We spent 5 nights here in January, 3 on our own, before joining an OAT tour for 2 more nights. We appreciated the hotel not making us change rooms when we joined the tour.

The hotel does not live up to it's reputation and is very overrated by various websites. The cleaning staff entered our room even when we had the "do not distrub" sign hung. We did not want the room cleaned because of the strong smelling chemicals the hotel uses.
