“Incredible family vacation to Bogota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

My wife and I took our two sons (3 & 10) to Bogota for spring break and had a mind bogglingly great trip. We basically decided to go to Colombia based on the great airfare we found with JetBlue. The Hotel Casa Deco is a nice hotel in the La Candelaria area of Bogota. There are several areas in the city to stay in, but if you want to stay in the area that "looks like Bogota" and not some anonymous upscale business/shopping district, then you need to stay in Candelaria. Hotel Casa Deco is nicely situated within walking distance from all the museums and the main plaza. There are tons of restaurants etc near as well. The staff at the hotel bend over backwards to accommodate any need/request you may have. The only quibble I have is that the area is not a quiet one at night. I had to sleep with ear plugs. There is a hostel next door and they party late. However, if you get a room on the backside or away from the hostel, you should be fine. The breakfasts are amazing. They first bring out fresh fruits, croissants and fresh juice and coffee. Then you can have eggs or pancakes. The mangos are the most delicious fruit to ever touch my tongue. It's a great way to start the day.

The staff at the hotel were incredibly helpful with every request we made. They were upbeat and knowledgeable. After three days, I felt like we were almost friends! The breakfasts were outstanding, as advertised, and the room looked just like the photos.

We did have a small issue where we stored our bags and one got left behind. They transferred it for us, but to the wrong place. This would not change my recommendation, though I would have appreciated a bit more responsiveness at that stage.

We'd booked to stay 3 nites at Casa Deco, liked it so much we stayed 5 and can't praise it high enough.
I've traveled and stayed in a lot of hotels with my work and this is as good as it can get, in my view.
The owner Gianpaolo has got staff around him who are 'moulded in his image', nothing is too much trouble, in a nice friendly unoverpowering way.
Lovely people, excellent service and value for money, just the kind of start you need at the begining of a holiday.

I went with a quasi girlfriend to Bogota for a long weekend and friends recommended we stay here. This place was outstanding it was so cute. The staff was bend over backwards helpfully (they even let us borrow a cell phone during our stay). Great location downtown near many great places to sightsee.

I highly recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Bogota.

Well located in La Candelaria, walking distances from every place at the historical Bogota. Gianpaolo, its owner, is always attentive and trying to help. We loved the breakfast music (a solo guitar player, music from Middle ages ...outstanding talent). Rooms are comfortable and simple. Good value for the money.

We were really glad, that we chose this hotel as it was our first trip to Bogota. I can only comment positively because this hotel is not only a good hotel, but each guest is well looked after individually with great attention to detail by the ever so friendly and helpful staff.
The location is perfect, right in the heart of La Candelaria from where we could walk everywhere safely. The breakfast was superb (with live classical guitar music)!
The room we stayed in was very clean and spacious, free and FAST wi-fi, even at the roof top, where you definitely need to go up, have a coffee and enjoy the view!
The staff speaks good English as well as Italian (the owner).

To summarise, a perfect place right in the central. We will definitely stay there again during our next trip!

We wish Casa Deco all the best and keep on doing such a great job!

Casa Deco is only a year old but it runs like a very well oiled machine.
An extremely friendly staff led by Gianpaolo Magnani makes sure that every need of every guest is taken care of. The rooms are modern and airy. The best one is room 403, a mini-suite which includes a very large terrace, with panoramic views of the city. Delicious full breakfasts include fruit salad and your choice of eggs or pancakes. A lovely travel experience.
