“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Close to Parque 93 and lots of restaurants. Minimalist in but clean and the staff is very helpful, most speaking English. Great breakfasts at Avia every morning. Lovely gathering area on the 6th floor to visit with family. Don't bother to rent a car in Bogota as cabs are plentiful and inexpensive. Traffic is horrid! It makes the D. C. Traffic a piece of cake.

I stayed in this hotel for 1.5 nights as my usual choice in Bogota (Casa Real) had jacked up their rates for some reason and I found it was no longer in any relation to their offering.

I chose this hotel, because I wanted to stay around Parque 93 and this hotel offered an acceptable rate. The hotel is new and the lobby reminds you of a modern botique hotel. The staff is nice, but when I checked into my room I immediately started missing the big rooms in Casa Real. The interior of the room was quite creative, but not very user-friendly. First of all there was no space to store and open a large suitcase. I finally ended up having it under the desk, which was not good, cause I had to work on it.

The open bathroom looks interesting, but once again is very uncomfortable to use. The sink is designed in a way that once you open the water a bit more you end up splashing it all over yourself. You enter the shower (which is a bathtub) over a large step placed in front of the tub. This could prove to be quite dangerous once it gets wet.

The room does come with free wireless and a safe, which is good for me as a business traveler.

The breakfast is a la carte and although I didn't pay extra I noticed that I do prefer buffets.

The check-out process was a bit painful. There is only one desk with one computer. When I left, the system was on strike and it took quite a while to check-out. At the same time there were 4 other parties waiting to check-in. They didn't look too happy.

For my short stay it was an interesting alternative, but I don't think I will be back anytime soon. I rather look for some other alternatives instead.

Avia 93 is a modern, convenient business hotel. It has all the amenities a business traveller needs, including a great work space on the 6th floor terrace. Wifi is complementary and worked reliably during my ten days stay. The restaurant can't quite keep up with the quality of the hotel but since there are literally dozens of great dining options just around the corner this fact is more than made up for. Avia 93 is certainly great value for money especially compared to some of Bogota's pretty pricey luxury hotels, none of which is as conveniently located as avia 93.

Nice place, amazing service, great location. I love the design, modern, minimalist, trendy but unpretentious. The rooms are small but functional. In a nice and safe location (close to the Parque 93). And it's not expensive at all for this quality

The rooms are nice, clean, and the bed very comfy. The rain showers are awesome, and shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and even bath robe are provided. They have reduced the offerings for breakfast that is included in the room rate (they used to have eggs benedict as one of the free options), but it is still very decent for the price you pay. The restaurant gets plenty of natural light, and is also a good option for business meetings at night because it is usually very quiet.

I love how internet is included, and there no repeated login required. The gym located on the top floor also gets plenty of natural light (even if you go at 6am), though could do with some free weights and newer/ better machines.

For weekdays, this area is typically quite quiet. But it does start getting noisy Thu nights onwards, but it is still bearable.

Another downside is that depending who you get, check-out can be extremely slow.

Modern minimalistic design. Suite rooms with great beds, sound insulation. Located 5 minutes walking distance from parque 93 where many good restaurants are.
i stayed there twice this year, and next time I{m in Bogota, i think I´ll go back to the same hotel. the first time I didn´t bring my computer with me, they provided a new notebook for me to use in my bedroom for as long as I stayed. Breakfast is yummy.
what else? highly recommended

I found this delight of a hotel by triangulation on Google Maps, and I am SO glad I did! Within crawling distance from the "Parque de la 93" and our new office, it is an excellent choice for business travel.
The decor in the rooms is minimalist, but feels clean and well thought out.
The complete black-out curtains are the perfect addition to the floor to ceiling windows all around the corner room where I was fortunate enough to stay.
The staff seems willing to help and looks to go above and beyond.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are awesome, and the black-out curtains, with the electric controls by the headboard, a...
