“Great service and location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights last week when we first arrived in Bogota. The couple who own and run this small hotel go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. Our room had a very comfortable king bed with great linens, duvet and pillows. The hotel is only half a block from a Transmilenio station so geting around the city is easy but it is on a side residential street so it is not noisy. We are back here again on our way to Ecuador and have booked for two more nights at the end of our trip.

I don't believe in throwing out 5 stars indiscriminately. The hotel is basic, but the service is what elevated my rating.

I was initially staying in the "upscale" area near Virrey Park. Not b/c I'm a high roller, but b/c safety is a huge issue here. However, this area is far from La Candelaria where most of the sites are. And getting jostled on the Transmilenio got tiresome after a long day of sightseeing. I researched and found the Teusoquillo area to be safe and closer to the center. Hotel Casa Boyaca Real is just off the main street around the corner from the Transmilenio calle 45. I think it cut my transit to the city center 10-20min depending on what bus I was able to catch. And I saved a lot more money staying here than in Zona T.

The room was spacious, though it can get a little cold. Speaking of cold, it takes forever for electric shower to heat up. The rooms are basic, and the construction serves more function than aesthetics. However, you get good wifi (easy browsing) and a clean and quiet room. Breakfast was not exciting but filling.

I read about the good service here from other TA reviews. And anything we needed addressed was done so immediately. Patricia, the cook, cleaner, receptionist, etc was tireless and great. Our last night here, we went to dinner at the restaurant next door. I had thought that we had used credit card the first time we ate there, but tonight we couldn't. This was a problem, since we were out of cash. The older lady, who works the night, graciously talked to the restaurant staff. She arranged it so that we could add the bill to our hotel tab. This saved us from a lot of trouble, and I would never imagine that a hotel would help us out in this way.

You travel enough and you know that there are moments when you have to rely on the kindness of strangers. The hotel does charge VAT, but I chose not to bring this up. We are grateful to have found such a place and highly recommend it to others.

At a recent stay at the Casa Hotel Boyacá Real we found our room comfortable and perfectly clean and staff that went above and beyond anything we had expected - giving us directions and insight into the best of Colombia as well as great service - hot tea on arrival after a long flight and delicious breakfast every morning.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was spacious , bathroom had tub and jacuzzi and shower. The staff were helpful, courteous and the breakfasts were great. A wonderful selection of food and the Bird of Paradise on out tables as the centre piece. The use of a computer was handy. Close to downtown to walk to and they provided a map for us. Overall experience there was superb.
