when we reached at this hotel mansion ,, the outside of the so called hotel looked like a regular house with a small regular wooden door in a outside neighborhood of Bogota far from everything . it was gated with grill all over and from the front part of the so called hotel .
there was no sign on the wall or door that this was a hotel : like Hotel la mansion " , it only said with very small letters next to the door: la mansion . i thought i reached particular house of someone i don't know and i told the taxi driver that he probable was mistaken , and that this could not be the hotel i booked . so we went inside and ask if this was the hotel i booking.com and i was surprised to hear yes , this i s the hotel la mansion . i told them i was not planing to stay there any more since this was not what we expected to be or even saw onthe pictures of the booing site .they told me i have to stay or i will lose my money .the so called lobby was just like the sitting room of a poor to a middle class owner decorated with old sabby, cheap ,wear out furniture .They showed me 2 rooms and believe me it did not recognize none of these rooms on the nice pictures on the boong site showing nice cozy bedrooms and bathrooms . the furniture and bathrooms were old and one of the rooms had a really bad smell , only the restaurant looked nice and a small patio , but this is a house of a family trying to make a living with a hotel of 4 stars but totally off for 3 or 4 stars maybe just one . we decided not to stay and i lost my money since the police of this hotel is that when you book and do not stay , you lose not only one night but all of the nights you booking , and so it happpened .but i rather lose than stay somewhere and feel like i am no where in a strange new country and in a old bad smelling room . after me and my daughter left , we end up going around in a taxi looking for another hotel before taking any and i got one very nice comfortable aparthotel 122 plaza hotel for a little bit more but new , comfortable with flat sreen , kitchenette ,modern , and very centrally located ,we walked to restaurants and shopping mall , but this time i did not booked my hotel through booking .com because i did not like the fact that i lost $400.00 for such a bad choice due to untrue pictures of this so called hotel la mansion on this booking .com . i went i saw personally for myself to see what i was getting, for a lillte bit more was true
hotel la mansion was a bad choice , bad , very bad ,but never again
