“Great hotel, fab location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

Lovely hotel in La Candalaria. Close to all the attractions and lots of bars and restaurants. Top floor rooms are best with direct access to the roof terrace and wonderful views. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

For me, La Candelaria was the best area to stay in Bogota, despite the somewhat sketchy feel later at night. A fascinating neighborhood, close to so many of the sights.

Hotel Casa Deco is nicely decorated (lots of bold colors) and has a really friendly and helpful staff. My room on the top floor was big. I was concerned at first because all the windows were frosted. Lots of light, but no view. (Presumably to protect the guest's privacy from the balcony that runs all around the room.) From the balcony, the views are sweeping and lovely, and part of it is sectioned off as a private balcony for the room.

As other reviewers have commented, noise can be an issue, which is the only reason I rated it 4 instead of 5. The open internal staircase funnels noise from the lobby and lower floors. From my room, the outside noise wasn't bad at all -- just typical city noise -- though I didn't stay over the weekend, when the neighborhood may be a lot busier.

The staff was wonderful. My bag got lost and they kept calling the airlines to check. They were very helpful.
The breakfast was delicious!
The location was great. Fun to walk around from there to visit downtown Bogota.

Well located hotel close to the old historical area in Bogota. The main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance if you don't mind walking at an altitude of 2600m. Inside is very nicely decorated and our room was a good size, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was plain but good. What impressed us was the fantastic staff who were very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants, getting taxis and just friendly advice. If there had to be a complaint then it would be about noise but the hotel is close to the centre of the tourist attractions and the narrow streets are busy with vehicles so there has to be some compromise and I guess all hotels in this area must suffer with noise. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here right at the beginning of our holiday in Colombia. The weather was chilly and wet. Our room was large, well furnished, right on the street but reasonably quiet and the bed was excellent, large and warm. The shower in the bathroom was a bit feeble, but ok. The staff ar excellent, speak better English than I speak Spanish (mind you that's not saying much) and are very helpful. The breakfasts are fruit salad, eggs, and croissant. The coffee could be better, very watery and weak, but the rest was fine. Highly recommended

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we felt at home at this hotel. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Lina at the front desk went out of her way to answer all of our questions and went over and above what was necessary to deliver personal and professional service. Paulo the owner runs a great hotel and anticipates the needs of guests. Jaime the breakfast waiter is very good at what he does and has the patience of Job putting up with picky guests in the sometimes busy dining room. The talented musician playing soothing classical guitar during breakfast was a welcome surprise. A hearty thank you to the guy on night duty (I forgot his name) who we startled at 3 in the morning after we arrived on a late flight.

The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and retain their old colonial charm. It can get a little noisy if guests stomp up the stairs without regard for anyone but themselves but this was not a problem to us. Regarding the noise–if you book a hotel in the middle of a thriving, living city you can expect a little noise. If it's absolute silence you want, go to the countryside.

Everything was within walking distance: 20 minutes to the funicular; less than 10 minutes to an ATM, town square and the museums. Just up the street is the hip plaza del Chorro de Quevedo where you can hang with the local college kids. The rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of this wonderful neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This was a great little place in the centre of the old town in Bogota. Walking distance to all the local sites. They arranged an airport pickup for us and we felt very welcome - staff were really friendly! Only drawback was there wasn't many restaurants for dinner close by, other than that would recommend it!
