March 2009, we spent four days is the lovely hotel in Bogota's historic district. We breakfasted each morning in the pretty indoor courtyard on fresh fruits and juices, then stepped out front onto the cobblestone street. The room decor was ultra contemporary in our first room. We returned a few days later and stayed in a more historic room overlooking the front door.
Later in our stay we discovered a modern swimming pool in the basement. Not sure how they got it there. Very nice. Well equipped locker rooms.
Cab drivers warned us not too walk around the neighborhood at night. It was fine during the day. Lots of students from the university. Not far from the Botero museum.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel de la Opera is located in La Candelaria, next to the Cristobal Colon Theater, in front of "Palacio San Carlos", currently headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, one block from Bolivar Square and a fifteen minutes walk to the funicular for Monserrate hill. Thanks to its strategic location, our guests can easily visit the most characteristic places of the city, for example the Gold Museum, Botero Museum, Primary Cathedral, etc. Also, many important government buildings are nearby. Walking its roads you will be part of its stories, legends and myths which are preserved in each of its houses. Questions like, why do the houses have doors of two meters? Where did Manuelita Saenz live her idyll with Simon Bolivar? Which is the window through which Simon Bolivar escaped? These are just some examples of the cultural treasures that you will find in La Candelaria. ... more less
