My internet research, produced a sweet deal through despegar.com and booking. com of 154.COP for a 3 night four day stay. I walked to Ambar and negotiated the internet price of COP 154 with Valeria, She spoke english and was very helpful with translating with the non english speaking staff at the hotel.
Valeria was nice enough to include a continental breakfast in my 3 day stay. The breakfast included (fruit, juice, pan with mantequilla, cafe and cereal) Breakfast was from 6am to 9am.
My room (222) was verrrry small. My bed was an individual type that only fits one person NOT the doble that was advertised on the internet booking site. So small that I did not have any furniture (dresser drawers) to store my clothes.
My initial room survey, I noticed that I was missing towels. I notifIed staff and they promptly provided me with clean towels and a tall wooden coat rack for storage.
During my 3 day stay, i noticed that my bedcovers, sheets and pillowcases were not changed but my bed was made daily and my room was cleaned.
Ambar hotel has some nice art work on the second floor. They have two comfortable couches on the second floor lobby area where you can watch television on a big lcd screen.
Internet area was clean and both computers were functional throughout the day and night.
My room was located on the side of the courtyard and I had difficulty taking a nap from about 6pm to 8pm. I could hear the music, television, people talking and staff helping hotel customers. I would suggest a room opposite the courtyard.
The area is full of people and many open shops/restaurants on avenida 8. Its a hustle and bustle type of vibe. I felt very safe but at night, the area becomes dark, not many stores open and the area is occupied with the nightowls. The nightowls and dark streets put me on high alert when walking alone in the area.
The hotel can be accessed from the el dorado airport via transmilenio to the transmilenio universidades stop and a five to ten minute walk to the hotel.
