“perfect and beyond!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Since the minute we walked in, it seemed like a very nice hotel. Friendly staff, and nice areas; and when we got to the room it was everything and beyond we expected! Bed is super comfy, the bathroon is absolutely great, very thick and nice white towels, the room was very neat and clean, spacious, and great courtains so we could sleep as much as we wanted.
Buffet breakfast is ok, not great but has different options. The park right next to the hotel is really nice, and one really great thing is that on sundays some roads are closed for bikes, and the hotel has free bikes you can use, and we certainly did! the taxi driver at the hotel took us on several tours around the city, picked us up at "Andres Carne de Res" on time, so everything was just perfect. If we go back to Bogota, we´ll definately stay again in this hotel!

On my last visit stayed there for 8 nights. The hotel is well kept and is relatively well located near in a safe residential area, just few minutes walk from some of the mayor malls and restaurants in the zone. The only downside is that the hotel does not have a gym in their premises (though they do offer to go to a gym not far.... but). Good chice business travelers.

Room Tip: Do not take the 8th floor

I spent 3 nights in this hotel in march 2012. This is a brand-new building located in a nice area of Bogota, safe and close to the "zona T" area, which is famous for its bars and pubs... Customer service is truly excellent, rooms have a nice design and good overview on the park aside. The only issue is that the walls are not good for noise prevention, so if people are talking in the middel of the night in the room close to you... just call reception !! Breakfast is great. Nice terrace.

Stayed for two nights on my way out of Bogota. Good service, nice room, excellent free breakfast ( I think they were amazed at how many waffles my husband could eat), and wifi. Location was perfect to walk up to Park 93 area down to Zona T. Right on ciclova if you are there on Sunday, we walked down to Usaquen in a bit over an hour.
Very happy that checkout is not till 3pm as we had a late flight.

Only negatives are a super strong perfume they have doused the room with, and about three different times where I was napping or in the bathroom and staff kept coming in to check towels or some damn thing after one knock.

I was at the end of a month long trip and needed an easy, quiet place to stay. Cite Hotel provided everything that I needed from a quiet room, quality meals, and outstanding front desk service.

I've stayed at several different hotels in Bogota in the past but I've just stayed here for four nights and just booked again for six nights in late March. I'm travelling for business and this place pretty much ticked all the boxes for me. Stand out was the quality of the breakfast and the food generally (it is in an area with some fantastic restaurants but the hotel's kitchen rises to the challenge presented by its neighbours), complimented by an exceptional team of restaurant and bar staff, which really kept me coming back. On the first morning they happily went off menu to provide me with poached eggs on toast, after that I was never disappointed by the service that I received. They get it right, invisible when necessary but always attentive. It's a really great place for breakfast meetings.

My room was large and really had all the facilities that I needed to work and rest and it was kept very clean - just two gripes, the safe didn't work (I gave up asking for it to be fixed after day two) and the bed was a little too hard for me.

In early February you need to be a little hardy to use the pool but it is heated, long enough to swim lengths (this isn't a glorified bath) and the view of the mountains surrounding the city, well you certainly know where you are.

We usually stay at the Sofitel when in Bogota. We chose Hotel Cite as an alternative in the zona Rosa district which is a nice area full of restaurants.

What a good surprise! Rooms are modern and convenient with L'Occitane products in the bathroom. We were given a king room on the top floor (room 803) with nice view on the underneath park and nearby avenue. The hotel also offers free Wi-Fi.

At approx. $150 per night with buffet breakfast included, we feel we made a great deal. The staff is very nice and the gentleman at the front desk spoke perfect English. There is a heated swimming pool on the top floor, which We didn't use during this stay.

Anyway, i have no doubt that we will be back in this hotel on our next trip to Colombia!
