Convenient location . Small rooms but adequate in old colonial building. Good service, enjoyable breakfast buffet in atrium. Pleasant stay. Would recommend if looking for something for short stay in Candelaria area.

I have now stayed at the Hotel de la Opera three times. It is a beautful, well maintained, old style (I mean this in a good way) hotel with extraordinary service, and excellent breakfast and a fabulous spa. I am sure I will be back.

La Opera is set in the heart of the historic quarter of Bogotá, walking distance to the Museo del Ouro and the magnificent Brotero Museum. The building itself is conserved immaculately. Breakfast is quite generous although service can be a little slow. Rooms, we stayed on the 7th floor, need an urgent update, especially the bathrooms, and, as said before,... More

I loved this wonderful old hotel in the heart of Bogota's colonial district. My room was beautiful, and the staff was very friendly and cordial, going out of their way to be helpful. It was within easy walking distance of the places I wanted to visit in the city, and there were plenty of excellent restaurants close by. I would... More

Located in the heart of colonial Bogota, the city's main tourist sites and some good restaurants are within walking distance. This is a very good hotel for tourist groups, but the front desk is not reliable when the staff promises to make a room repair or wakeup call. And yes, as others have written, street noise can interfere with sleeping.

We didnt sleep before 3.30am and had an early checkout at 7.30am. Not happy! When the girl at the desk asked how our stay was i said about this. She didnt say anything,... More

A very nice and cosy place in central historic Bogota. The staff and the service are very good as the small but convenient breakfast. A very nice old building and room but... not so convenient for business... small doors, small windows and also the rooms are not so quiet... it's the only "bad thing" for this nice and lovely hotel.
