Very close to the old center and cerro Monserrate. Nice rooms, comfortable and clean. Good breakfast. It is in a nice location but is quite dangerous around, so is better to take taxi or Uber to move at night.

I traveled here a couple of weeks ago and this is one of the best hotels I've ever been to. It's inexpensive and it offers a lot of amenities. It's pretty all around and it's quality is outstanding, the bed was comfortable, and the whole room was very clean as well. The street of the hotel is not the prettiest...

The price for this property was astonishingly low. Nonetheless, I was disappointed... because I anticipated an inexpensive hotel. It's better to think of it as a fancy hostel in a rough part of town. Drug deals going down literally on the door step. Laundry sent out for wash-and-fold which came back dirty and missing one shirt. Bug bites every night....

Charming appearance, clean and simple spot with 24 hour reception and a great location. Didn't find the location to be as dangerous as some other reviewers make it sound. The wifi was fine; the water was hot; the staff was pleasant and available for questions.

Beautiful wood floors, etc. I was traveling with two other friends and we shared a room with 3 beds which cost about $20 usd per night. I think some people come here and expect the hyatt downtown for this price. The...

The hotel is well located and the staff is great, especially Adriana, a lovely girl who always helped us. Dom Ricardo was also pleasant and helpful. The continental breakfast is ok. Rooms are small and we have problem with the electricity plugs. The WiFi is good. Fair price for the hotel.

Be aware! Horrible place. Noise and unpolite crowd. Small room, very small bathroom without real hot water. Long line for a poor breakfast (still the same, scrumbled eggs, if it is not already finished). More problems: somebody of the crowd stohol money from my room, no way to get it back. Warmly unrecommended!

This hotel is much different from photos. I arrived here at night and the near by is very dangerous and ugly And we asked for towels and they didnt have more!!! So if you want to stay in this place, you should bring your own towel or you will need to dry yourself with your clothes!! Also the breakfast is...

Great location close to the heart of Bogota. Friendly and helpful staff. Despite arriving way before check-in time they've done whatever they could to accommodate us early. Room was nice, clean and big enough for 2 people, bed/pillows very comfortable. The only downside for me was the noise coming from restaurant/reception as windows from our room were just above those...

“Better to have the room towards the street than to the courtyard because it is roof over there so you get not good air, only from restaurant which is just there inside.”
