We made our reservation via expedia.com. Upon arrival we were told that they do not have our reservation since the hotel is not associated with Expedia and never received payment nor a confirmation. This while on the reservation printout it is stated that we do not need to confirm. Anyways, told the not so friendly receptionist that this was not... More

The hotel is located in Provenza of the El Poblado area, close to all the lovely cafes, restaurants and shops in the area. Everything was walking distance in the Provenza area, making it very convenient. I stayed in Hotel Acqua Express for 2 nights. There is nothing flash about the hotel or its decor but it is modern, clean and... More

Great location in El Poblado, great breakfast and walking distance from many cafes and restaurants. Definitely hit the Buddha Bar down the road. It is a hostel but the bar/bartender upstairs were great. He even ordered food for us to be delivered at 2 am.

The good: if you want to be in El Poblado near Parque Lleras, the location is excellent. Breakfast was good. Check-in was quick, and we never waited long for the elevator. Wi-fi worked well. The not-so-good: added taxes and "security" brought the price of a so-called superior double room to $93--a poor value for a fairly small and awkwardly-shaped room.... More

The staff at Acqua is incredible; from the moment we checked in they were attentive to our every need. I got very sick during my travels and the hotel manager helped me find a lab and a doctor who could read the results and help me get what I needed. MIL GRACIAS! The hotel is perfectly located in the upbeat... More

This is one of those hotels were you have a great stay, but can't help to feel it could have been even better. The hotel is small and charming, with a very nice lobby and a great location near La 10 and Parque Lleras. The room was comfortable with modern fixtures, but there were small details that we couldn't help... More

First, the hotel staff, while business-like, was not at all friendly. Second, the rooms were not very good, and quite noisy. Third the breakfast was not very good. If I paid a lower price or the place had more poor reviews I would not have been surprised by the hotel. They also added a 16% VAT which as a non-colombian... More
