“Sweetest Family owned B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

OUTstanding location and the owners will do ANYTHING for you to improve your staff. Ask questions and enjoy a cafe with them and the other guests -- The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. OverNight guests are discouraged, so if you are traveling for a roll in the hay ... this wouldnt be the best place. Otherwise ... I highly recommend this location ... Also, the Jose and his wife are the BEST .,., and they LOVE jelly beans!!!

Make time and see the Salt Church ... it was truly incredible..... the city was nice to wonder around ... can buy unico VERY cheaply down there. - most of the prices are not as cheap as you would think but its a great city to visit....

Room Tip: HAd a room facing the west and was able to watch the sun set each night over the Andes...

Hi this hotel is run by a lovely older couple that really care. Nothing was too much trouble.we were picked up from the airport , 24 hour exceptional service.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough.If it is your first time to Bogata which it was my friends and i this is a great place to start. A beautiful area central to everything and delicious breakfast included.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are clean cosy and grea value for the price.

Pros
o Great service
o Free good breakfast
o Security

Cons
o Everything costs extra - over night guests, airport to/from
o Noise from the street
o Every thing is about a 10 minute walk
o Security
o Average internet speed

The hotel is average. The staff is nice, and the hotel is about a 10 -15 minute walk to the gay bars. You would have to take a taxi home because it isn't the best neighborhood after dark. If you plan to have an overnight guest they have to leave their ID at the front desk. You have to be buzzed into and out of the hotel. It's not the hotel if you plan to hook up with someone.

Room Tip: I had room 307 which was on the top floor. There was only one other room 305 on that floor. Both f...

They said they would provide transportation to & from the airport which they did but didn't tell me for a fee until I checked out. Also didn't tell me there would be a fee for any visitor until I checked out. The hotel room had no heat & it was very cold at night. Also the interior of the room/plumbing looked like a trainee did the job. On a good note the staff were nice & the breakfast good

Room Tip: I guess top floor would be best but its all staires

Going to Bogota, we really didn't know what to expect after decades of travel warnings. What a pleasant surprise to fine a great hotel, just 5 minute walk from all the nightlife and restaurants of the Chapinero area. Chapinero will remind you of the mission district in San Francisco, a little seedy - but lots of great restaurants, commercial centers and the center of gay nightlife (more than 30 bars/clubs/discos in a one block area). How nice that High Park Hotel is just a 5 minute walk up the hill in 'Chapinero Alto" away from the hustle and bustle in an upscale residential/university area.
The hotel is only six rooms and is really a 'Bed and Breakfast' with excellent security, comfortable rooms, a great breakfast every morning including fantastic Colombian coffee and the friendliest hosts you can imagine. Although advertised as a 'gay hotel' it is a perfect choice for anyone - it really should be called 'gay-friendly' or just plain 'friendly'. Anytime you need a taxi, info on getting around or a tour - the hosts and staff are more than happy to help. We used David as a local guide for our tour to Monserrate and Candeleria after he finished working the night shift - and it was a great experience (much better with a local guide than trying to figure out the confusing transit system and local streets).
The hotel has a small lounge/bar plus the breakfast room on the first level and an outdoor patio with umbrellas. Rooms are upstairs with comfortable beds, free wifi and good cable TV. From the rooms on the upper floor, you also get a great view of the lights of Bogota at night.
Part of the attraction of this hotel is their location 'up the hill' in the more residential area - only a 5-7 minute walk form the main action... but this also means that you have to climb several sets of stairs so it might not be the best choice for anyone with physical limitations. However, for most guests, the walk is a welcome break and there is a park with soccer court halfway if you need an interesting break. Even during late night hours, there seemed to be people playing soccer or basketball here, so it always felt safe - but it would have been easy to grab a taxi for the short trip up the hill if we needed a lift. There are also steps from the street up to the main level of the hotel and rooms are another flight up... not an issue for most travelers, but something to bear in mind (no elevator).
If you like great small hotels with a B&B vibe that is close to all the action of Chapinero but in an upscale neighborhood, then you'll love High Park Hotel.
We're already planning a trip back in December .

I had only an overnight stay here and the husband & wife owners went quickly from 'getting on my nerves' to 'totally exasperating'.

Thin walls, paper-thin doors, noisy hard flooring. There is no warm water at the sink, it was not even plumbed for warm hot water pipes. Not many places to set your things. No in-room security box.

It was very clean and freshly painted, and in a nice residential neighborhood. And its close to the gay bars, cafes, saunas, etc. There was a very helpful and friendly night manager, and he speaks excellent English. (The owners do not speak any English.)

But the Zona Rosa is also very close: Everything along the northeast part of Bogota is a j short cheap ride by taxi.

There are plenty of nice hotels to choose from, and its worth a few extra dollars to avoid the High Park.

Very nice hotel! Clean, friendly, great home cooked breakfasts! Location, so-so. The shock came when I checked out. My bill had $35 times 3 "additional" added in for 3 "visitors" to my room. Two of which were VERY, VERY brief! This is mentioned VERY vaguely in a waiver they have you sign - Definitely NO specific $$ amount listed! I really feel cheated. If this isn't an issue for you, stay there! You'll enjoy it! I'll try a different hotel next time.
