This hotel was poor at best. I stayed in this hotel recently for 10 days for a work trip and their internet was not working the entire time. When asked staff said that they would have the problem fixed within 2-3 days and it turns out that they never had internet to begin with. Hotel was not very hospitable in... More

I only stayed here for one night on my way back to Holland. On my onward journey I had stayed also 1 night in Bogota, but in the Candalaria area. This was a kind of shabby area at night. Hotel Bogota Virey is situated in a far more modern and develloped and save area in Bogota. Good spacious and clean... More

For my trips to Bogota I always use this Hotel because it's located near mi company's office. Comfortable and clean. The restaurant it's very good, but the barman knows nothing about Gin tonic, Martinis or other cocktails. They have a very good breakfast with eggs, cereal, fresh bread and ham.

This hotel only has one phone line. It's really bad if you need to contact any person VIA telephone. Not even their email response is good. And later everyone's wonder why Bogota is in a 2rd world country

El Virrey manages to combine the very good, quite bad and mediocre but it’s the hotel’s location that swings the vote for me. Starting with the quite bad; the breakfast would fit this description perfectly. More than anything else, the breakfast was just miserly. When I’m on holiday, I want to stuff my face – either with a continental or... More

The hotel is well located, close to the Zona T, good shopping centers and restaurants. The building, along with its decoration shows its age. It is a good option if there are no other choices, however it will not be something to remember. The hotel is clean, the beds are comfortable, but everything is average and considering the rest of...

Been to this hotel several times during 2009-2010. Overall it is a good place. Small, clean and secure. Service is good. It is possible for a small charge to leave your luggage in their storage room. Area is not safe at dark, but very central at day. A little overpriced, I think.

Like many hotels I've stayed in, the pictures on their site are a bit enhanced and make the rooms look a lot newer and larger than they are. That said, the hotel gives the appearance of being a boutique hotel. The lobby is very minimalist. The rooms are adequate but the furniture rather cheap looking. All rooms have flat screen... More

Although the hotel doesn't look very promising from the outside, once you step in you feel it's well-run, safe and clean. This is the more important, because it's located in an area which is very convenient for visting Bogotá's most important tourist sites, but a little tacky in the daytime and deserted at night. The rooms are small but comfortable;... More

After staying at two other hotels in the Candeleria area, a cab driver recommended this hotel. Compared to my previous hotel, there was twice the amount of space for a few dollars more. Rooms have in-room safes, 27 inch flat screen TV's. It is on a quiet street that is deserted at night. It's three blocks from the Candelaria zone... More
