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... First of all the front desk… They are slow, very slow and again no English or another language. But after some time in South America it looks... More

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. The staff is very polite and eager to help. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom modern and furnished with what you would expect in a four-star hotel in the... More

While this hotel is located at the edge of the old town the location is not that great. There are few decent restaurants or bars within walking distance and those that were there seemed to close early. It would appear that a better option would be to stay in one of the modern areas and simply take a taxi to... More

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.

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...
