I arrived by myself at midnight in a cab from the airport. The streets were empty, except for armed police at nearly every corner. The street in front of the hotel is "gated" so a security officer had to unlock a chain to allow the taxi access. The hotel entrance was dark. But as the cab pulled up, the lights... More

We were 100% satisfied with the atmospheric hotel, our comfortable and spacious room and the attentive and friendly staff, making this the perfect choice for us as first time visitors to Bogota. The location of the hotel is also outstanding, within easy walking distance... More

Elegant old Candelaria area with the Teatro Colón to one side and the Foreign Ministry across the cobblestone street. Central location for Botero Museum, Gold Museum and the L.A.

room is ok , situation great but service is really not good especially at the frontdesk where the people do not care about the clients. To call a taxi from the hotel don't even try to get one from them , do it yourself. Service from the bar is inexistant also

We stayed in this hotel for three nights at a busy time--December, but the hotel was quiet, and the staff very friendly. The location is convenient for walking to all the major sights--museums, the main plaza,restaurants, shops, and the theater next door! Our room was very nice and breakfast was very good. There is also an excellent small indoor pool... More

This excellent hotel is located at the edge of the old Candelaria district of Bogota. The rooms are quiet; the staff is courteous and efficient and the restaurant is outstanding with selections from the four corners of Colombia. Excellent menu with English translations. Good value, all in all. The Bar left a little to be desired but, what the hell,... More

Bogota is still a bit for the more adventurous traveler but if you want elegance at half what you'd pay elsewhere in South America, consider the Hotel de la Opera. In the highly desirable La Candelaria near museums, you have a quiet street and excellent included breakfast buffet. Outstanding staff.

We chose this hotel for our first 2 nights in Bogota because we wanted to be in La Candelaria (historical centre) to have easy access to explore the main tourist sites. While the hotel was convenient for this, the surrounding area is quite grimy, and in retrospect it would have been better to stay in a nicer area (e.g. Zona... More
