We stayed here before a flight to Medellin. We had an excellent rate from Booking.com. The room was very clean with two double beds. Generous breakfast by the pool with pancakes and cereal. Decent wifi too. Cons: Air conditioning was not overly consistent. Heard doors banging shut throughout the night.

Spent 4 nights on business at the hotel. Had an excellent corner suite at a high floor with a nice view over the city. Rooms are in progress of renovation. Non-renovated rooms are of considerably lower standard. Both restaurants are very good and with attentive service; Doña Petronas (fish and seafood) is specialized for birthday parties, giving it a party... More

I do not believe in making excuses for poor standards just because of its location in the world. If a hotel sells itself as top notch then this is how it should be judged. This hotel is a perfect example of a business that is running behind the times and has not kept pace with the expectations of travellers. The... More

High Point - The breakfast servers were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate and fresh, the coffee good. The room was clean and fruit and candy was left in the room each night which was a nice touch. Low Points: This gringo was not impressed by the cement hard mattresses or the small room for two. The noise... More

We only spent one night here on our journey north, but had no complaints. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and breakfast excellent, although we didn't have much time to enjoy it as we were heading out to get the early bus to Santa Marta. Not impressed with the city itself, but we... More

If you include Bucaramanga in your tour of Colombia, or "Ciudad Bonita" as it is called, stay at the Hotel Ciudad Bonita if you want to begin your exploring of the area from the center of town. The pool area and main dining room is located on the third floor, offering a good view of the old part of town,... More

Good hotel in the center of the city. We stayed 4 days. Very friendly and helpful reception. The room was clean but we had trouble with the (hot)water pressure. The hotel is surrounded by construction, ...... the hotel gave us a discount and was flexible in choosing a "less noisy" room both times we stayed.

This is one of the WORST hotels I've stayed in. The matress was as hard as can be, the decoration was really tacky, the TV didn't work, but the very worst is that they didn;t have hot water. Of course I complained at the front desk and they told me that the pipes were broken and that I was the... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 days and it was an absolutely wonderful and perfect time together. The hotel had outstanding service and everyone working was always very attentive to all needs. Your own stay in this hotel would definitely be a highlight of your travel expereince.
