Excellent hotel, loved it charm and it's location. The restaurant was five star and couldn't get enough of the Italian menu. Great price for value,would stay again. Maria Fernanda at the front desk was very helpful and spoke perfect English. Would be difficult to stay here without knowing some Spanish, that's why I gave it 4stars.

I spent some time in Bogota recently visiting friends. I stayed a few nights in Abadia Colonial. At first glance it didn't appear that special, but it only took a short time to realize why so many visit. It was beautiful, a perfect representation of Colombias colorful and rustic roots. The hotel was everything I expected, charming, romantic, rustic and... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic, in the La Candelaria locality of Bogota, with plenty of bars, restaurants, and attractions nearby. You can walk to the Museo Oreo and the Museo Botero. The layout of the hotel is charming in an old villa with a beautiful courtyard, and with a very nice Italian restaurant open for lunch and dinner... More

Dear Mrs Vijak, I would like to apologize for the inconveniences that you had at the hotel, after I check your fair comments,I realized that effectively that the second night that you spent here the person who was working at night didn´t follow the hotel´s rules it was because was his first shift at that hour, we had to change...

My 2 daughters and I loved this hotel - our first night in Colombia. Very welcoming, clean, wonderful old house but all mod cons. Delicious breakfasts without arepas - which we came to dread in other establishments!! Excellent Italian diner on our last night, and breakfast thoughtfully provided before our 6.30am departure. Staff very friendly and obliging but I echo... More

Everything about this hotel was charming, with the exception of the mattresses-they were not of a good quality. The rooms and rest of the hotel are decorated in an old-world, antique Colombian style with some italian undertones. Unfortunately we did not have time to try the Italian restaurant in the internal courtyard. But the value of the hotel was reasonable,... More

This was a lovely little hotel, the service was great and the breakfast on the upstairs balcony with a breathtaking view of the mountain were amazing. I would say the rooms are a little old school but to me that is character. People say it can be a little dodgy around La Candelaria at night but i Iwas coming home... More

Clean comfortable hotel in a central La Candelaria location. Rooms were full of character, really clean and the courtyard areas were lovely. Breakfast also very good. Service was really lovely and our pre arranged taxi from the airport to the hotel was very welcome. Recommended.

Recently spent four nights here. The hotel is in the middle of La Candelaria, the old part of the city. Whilst full of character and nice to wander around during the daytime, after dark the area is unsafe and you need to take taxis to get anywhere. Not too many places to eat in the area in the evenings and... More

Dear Mr Welsh, I feel in duty to answer you, taking more care of the Candelaria neighborhood than our hotel.The town center has an old style fashion and it’s full of museums and historical buildings. You had the chance to stay in an old restructured house and feel as a bogotan resident how lived here more than two hundred years... More

I spent 6 nights at Abadia Colonial and have high praise for it. The hotel staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. My only concern is for non-spanish fluent guests. My spanish is really terrible, but since I am traveling with a fluent speaker, everything was fine. The few times I attempted to communicate directly with the front desk, I felt... More
