“Pleasant staff, clean and well specced rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I stayed at the AR Salitre in Bogota on a recent trip. It is well located, around 15 minutes from the airport (traffic dependent, it could take 30 minutes on a bad day!). The staff are helpful and professional, the hotel offers free wifi (it was a good speed) and the rooms are well specced, although I had a view over a vacant plot of land. The food was good (I had both breakfast and dinner at the hotel). All in all, reasonably priced and clean hotel, recommended.

this is now my 7th stay in this hotel. The level of service is still as high as my first stay 5 years ago. Very helpful and professiona lstaff. Location is very safe and only 800 m away from a big shopping mall called Grand Estacion. From the airport it is only 15 minutes by taxi for 20.000 COP (9 Euro). Rooms are vry spaceous and very well equipped. Hotle is very well protected by security guard. Who is interested in doing some running, the parco central Simon Bolivar is only 1,5 km away and has a 22 km running track. Red sand make your shoes and socks not look so good. I enjoy thsi place every time. Highly recommended.

Personal shuttle from the hotel, excellent service in english, buffet breakfast every morning, cookie beside the bed every night, well stocked personal items in the bathroom, wonderful city-side view from the 18th floor, comfortable bed, clean room, close to the airport, safe neighbourhood, 1 new shopping mall within 3 minute walk, one newish shopping mall within 10 minute interesting walk. Would stay there again. If I was returning as a leisure traveler, i would instead get a hotel in the old city.

Room Tip: ask for city side view

I spent two nights at AR Hotel Salitre this past week. The hotel is new and modern and very comfortable. And I got a great price on line.

AR -- the initials of the guy who owns the hotel and building a chain of Colombia hotels -- is close to the airport, the US Embassy, and a number of government offices in that part of town. It is about a 15-minute ride to downtown if traffic is not too fierce.

The folks at the desk were very helpful. They even sent a techie to my room when I couldn't get the wifi to work. He spent 45 minutes and installed a repeater so I could get a strong signal.

The shuttle to the airport is great.

A few complaints but these are small things:
- To print your boarding pass, you have to email it to the front desk for them to print it. Seems overly complicated.
- I'd prefer more light in the bedroom, over the sink, and in the hallways.
- The restaurant is only ok.

Extra-points: use the yellow taxis on the street and not the bigger cars inside the hotel compound and you'll save a lot of money. The little yellow taxis are ubiquitous, reliable, and inexpensive.

Shuttle from/to the airport and to Gran Estación Mall (no more than 10 minutes), beautiful soft cross over life music reaching both hall and bar area, rooms perfectly clean, free wifi, business spa circuit is “a must” and the food excellent.
About the staff, let´s put it this way…they can almost read your mind and help you in your needs within seconds. As usual very friendly Colombian people.
If you don’t have to be around the north area of Bogotá, this is the perfect choice for business travelers!!

Although apparently this hotel is more directed to the business traveler, we had a very good experience. This has many advantages ..... the proximity to the airport from the city and the breakfast was as you'd wish any guest to. Bogota is a city full of life and we find excellent shopping in this.

The hotel is really good, with a lot of good details.

The rooms have plenty of space, confortable furnitures, including the amaizing confortable bed, wide window, the bathroom is very confortable,

It is very clean, with a lot of options for snacks, and drinks at reasonable prices.

The breakfast is correct, the restaurant is very good and not expensive. There is very good live music almost all the evenings at the lobby bar, this creates a great atmosphere.

The gym is small but with high quality machines and good details, like towels, water. I think that the gym is not mentioned in the hotel's web site.

The staff of the hotel is really warm and kind.

It is located in a quiet area, but a little bit far from restaurant and night clubs.
