When traveling in Latin America, I search for hotels that reflect local culture, provide a full range of services and have staffs that attend to one's needs. Hotel de la Opera meets all of these criteria and several more. My room was located in the more modern part of the hotel and offered all the amenities I look for, a... More

This boutique hotel is a converted mansion; most rooms overlook a quiet lush courtyard. The rooms and furnishings are pretty basic. My bed was pretty hard; there is no AC, which is not really a problem in Bogota, but it would have been nice to have a ceiling fan. If your window/balcony overlooks the street, you really cannot leave your... More

We were travelling with five grandchildren and wanted a location convenient for sight seeing and this perfectly fit the bill. We had a large king room and two rooms with three twins that were smaller. There was confusion when we first checked in, as even though our reservation confirmation from Expedia clearly showed what we booked, we checked in late... More

Location is very ideal during the day: super close to the museums and Plaza Bolivar. At night we were nervous navigating around by ourselves, so our evening meals were limited to the hotel. The restaurant was below average: our last night before a red-eye flight and we just wanted comfort food. My hamburger was cooked beyond well-done (if that's possible),... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay here. They were able to accommodate two adults and two kids in a large room with comfortable beds and nice amenities. The included daily breakfast was delicious and the hotel itself is beautiful. Located very close to many museums, the city's political center, and the character and restaurants of La Candelaria. We felt very safe... More

This hotel is above average. Nothing special. It is a good choice if you want to visit the gold museum and surroundings (House of Bolivar, ..). On the other hand it is not so nice to walk outside at night in that neighbourhood. So if you prefer to go out take an hotel more to the south side of the... More

The Opera hotel is in the historical centre of Bogota, if you enter the place, you can feel the colonial touch of this place. It’s very romantic hotel with some things to improve...

This wasn't my first choice, but we were pleasantly surprised. The building has a lot of charm, it's an old colonial mansion, and they have kept a lot of the architecture.
