I stayed here for 1 week on business. This hotel was classically decorated, clean and decently comfortable. The location is in a safe, well-off neighborhood and the hotel also had security guards- although I never felt like it was needed. My room was a bit dark and stuffy, it seemed like there was no reliable climate control. The bed was comfortable. The restaurant was fine, with a decent breakfast. The food selection for dinner was very limited and heavy on pasta. I enjoyed the restaurants in Bogota city much more.
Most of the staff were friendly, but some were very aloof and not welcoming. The staff did not appear to speak proficient English- I understand I am in their country and cannot speak Spanish-- but as a business traveler this stands out compared to the other places I have been worldwide and it is a mark against a hotel's service in my book.
I did not have time to sight-see on this trip so I cannot speak to the hotel's proximity to local attractions, but it is a long drive to the U.S embassy and the airport. The traffic in Bogota overall is horrendous however. I would recommend this place to a friend, keeping in mind my comments about service and the rooms. This may not be an issue for many people.
