“Virrey Park Hotel Bogota - Great Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Stayed at Virrey park for 4 nights, can't praise the reception staff enough as they were so friendly and did their utmost to try and help with all the queries I had. Their Engilish wasn't that good but despite this they made every effort to sort out my queries to the best of the knowledge.
Great location the famous Bogota Beer Company (BBC) is only round the corner less than 5 mins walk. Just up the road from BBC is the up scale Zona T shopping area with many bars and restaurants. Zona R another exclusive area with good restraunts appox 20 mins by walking. Park 93 which has a great atmosphere in the evening with many restraunts and bars is about 5 blocks away and will take you to 10 mins to walk there.

Room Tip: Choose the presidential suite on the 5th floor facing the park as these rooms are located at the bac...

Virrey Park is par of a chain managing a 5 stars hotel on the opposite side of the park, 2 3/4 stars in the sourroundings, a furtner 4(¿) stars downtown. This is probably the reason why details aré a must, hand finished sheets, good overall cleaniness, excellent utilization of the - limited anyway - space, a prompt and gentle answer to any request you can have. I appreciated food in the restaurant, italian cuisine, beyond pastas ( pervivan ceviche, steaks tasted very good and reasonably priced), workers aré quite professional and happy in their job. In the opinión of this modest very frequent world traveller virrey park is a well managed hotel. The worse was my bathroom with no window, (don"t know wat about different rooms). The best, if you want to leave a tip, then you to have to cal them back. They gone.

This is a very small hotel in a good location.Lot of restuarants and night life in walking distance and fairly safe neighborhood.Front desk ,bellman and housekeeping staff are very friendly.Rooms are very old but clean.Rooms are not set up with Ironer,hair dryer or coffee.Bathrooms are small and only have shower .
The only very negative about this hotel is the breakfast restuarant. Room price is inclusive of the breakfast.There was only one person in the morning and he did not have the ability to handle more than 3 people!!!!

Room Tip: My room was on the 5th floor with a balcony overlooking the park below. It was loce to the elevator...

I picked Hotel Virrey Park based on location, hotel amenities and value. I was there for several days with my family and so wanted a safe area and also a large room. It was next to a park which was a plus. The area was relatively safe and close to the T-Zone for good restaurants and shops. We could walk to the T-Zone during the day, but friends advised it was not save to walk it at night (after 10pm) It was not close to the historical district and museums, but that was ok as taxi travel was a pretty good option. Bathrooms were really small. Lots of outside noise made sleeping difficult. Finally, I think the price was too high for what you get, but I think it is hard to find good hotels in Bogota, with American standards, for a value. Overall, I would try a different hotel in the same area.

Room Tip: Don't bring lots of luggage...the elevator is really small.

Stayed 2 nights. I'm a biz traveller and love to try new hotels at every destination. This has been by far one of the worst experiences.

I didn't have hot water in both days. Many excuses where told starting with the foolest one "the hotel is full" when actually if you walked through the floors ou could see open room doors with no one in the.

Safe box without instructions. Not that I can't handle a simple and regular safe but this one was too complicated.

Very old sheets and blankets.

Mini bar not working but filled with beverages.

Breakfast... average.

Service... average.

There are many other hotels around with far better amenities. Don't bother stoping by this hotel.

Of course no refund was offered.

Stayed April 2012

This is a pretty standard hotel. It has your typical amenities - clean rooms, towels, tv, and a rather large bathroom. Nothing really sets it apart from most hotels...However, in Bogota it's hard to find a good hotel at a decent price in a good location. And that's what sets this hotel apart. It's greater than the sum of its parts. It is truly in the perfect location of Bogota - high end neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants and activities around it. Very safe. The concierge is very helpful in making reservations for you, giving you directions, and advice on where to go. However, they do not all speak English fluently, but I guess I do not speak Spanish very well.

I recommend this hotel. Good luck if you can find a similarly priced hotel in the best part of Bogota. This hotel is fine for business, families, and friends. Couples may want to splurge on something more romantic unless they plan on getting out and seeing the city!

A side note - beware of Bogota's elevation and climate. It is significantly cooler than other parts of the country and you may lose your breathe running up stairs, especially if you are not used to elevated areas. It's a great city, but remember to bring a light jacket!

I booked by internet trying to find a cool place to stay for a nice holidays in Bogota. When i arrived coffee smell of the Juan Valdez place, makes me feel i am at the right place for my jet lag ;)
Building has an antique architecture, but is quite good when you go inside. Rooms are modern, comfortable and clean, and bathroom was perfect (it is always my main concern anyplace).
At the resturant at first floor, i tried a really nice pasta and good price for that area.
Only thing i did not like too much, is in sunday government close 15th Av.and other strees at city for sport activities and i had to walk 2 blocks to find a taxi, but if you enjoy walk and parks around, for sure you will love it.
I think the best for me was location, full christmas decoration at park in front of the hotel, few blocks from cocktails bar, T zone with a lot of nice restaurants, shopping malls and Andre Carne de Res (Bogota version).
I had the best time there!!
