The location of the hotel is excellent. We took a bus from the airport and had a short walk from the bus station to the hotel. There are two malls near by and the subway station is at walking distance. The staff is very friendly. As for the taxes, they actually refunded us some of previously paid taxes because we... More

I was born in Colombia and now I have US citizenship, I thought I was going to be charged the infamous tax that everybody is talking about in the reviews. Specially, since the entry stamp is always put in my Colombian passport. It came to be that I was not charged that tax. I think the hotel staff has finally... More

When my group has booked this hotel I've came to tripadvisor and started reading all the stories about the Tax Scam Scheme comments from previous foreign guests who took the time to write on Tripadvisor... so even though I was aware of-it I've decided to give them the "benefit of the doubt". We've check-in late evening taking 4 rooms. During... More

Well-kept and near to malls, this hotel is quite nice. Good value for money (relative to other places that I stayed). Stayed there only for a conference so I can not say how well its location is to sightseeing but staff are pleasant and buffet breakfast is quite substantial (compared to the N America) and complimentary. My Spanish, at that... More

The hotel is ok and the value is ok. Needs a bit of updating, especially in the dark halls where the lights stay on for like 5 seconds. It sits on a busy street so expect traffic noise nearly all night. The restaurant is awful, avoid it. Attention! If you are using this hotel be careful because they will charge... More
