This hotel is very cosy, especially the cafe which is like a book shop where you have your nice breakfasts. The rooms are also very nice. However we had some problems with the room when we first checked in in the middle of the night (stuck toilet and not so clean sheets) the staff was sincerely sorry and very helpful... More

The book hotel is everything you want - spacious rooms with luxurious bathrooms (with functioning hot water!), delicious included breakfast and friendly staff - all in the setting of a quirky book hotel. Would really recommend - especially for the price!

This place sets the standard for Colombia. Although not perfect, very helpful staff and a lovely setting made this a pleasure to stay in a lovely area of Bogota. Good wifi and, in the end, a room safe that worked. Nice little cafe was relaxing too.

This hotel is sooooo nice!! The zone where it's located is really good, with manly things to do nearby, the building is magical, the charm here is that they are a library at the same time and you can find all kinds of titles. Rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable, and the staff is also very polite and always willing... More

We decided against staying in Candelaria as I wanted to feel comfortable going out at night and it certainly felt safe around this hotel. A good couple of nights were spent enjoying the nearby small branch of the Bogota Beer Company and Mini Mal, a highly recommended bistro, is just around the corner (as were a few other restaurants). The... More

Some don't speak much English but wasn't a problem as I just used Google translate on my phone. Great cafe area which I had a good... More

Stayed here a few nights before and after a group tour. It's s very lovely, modern and well presented hotel. The rooms are very well decorated and spacious. A journey from the airport should cost approx 25-30,000 pesos. The staff are lovely and yoy get a hearty breakfast included. The hotel is located approx 4kms from La Candeleria, so it's... More

Stayed here the final night of our Colombia group tour. Found it a nice comfortable place to stay although away from downtown. Asked tour leader reason for location & was informed that it was a safer place to stay then downtown.

I recently stayed for 5 nights at the book hotel. The location is good and pretty quiet. My room was in the courtyard and was a little cold and could have done with a carpet clean but ok. Lovely shower. Some English spoken at reception which help and willing to help with what was needed. Breakfast could do with improving... More

I was at The Book Hotel for almost a month last summer. Almost everything was ok during my stay, from the room cleaning to wifi connection. The restaurant also is very good and rather cheap. Above all, all the staff has been very kind and supportive. I would recommend The Book Hotel for a stay in Bogotà.
