The hotel displays 5 stars at the entrance and although this might be a bit high it's a very pleasing 4-star property without doubt. Located in the heart of La Candelaria, the old town of Bogota, the boutique hotel is charming, well-maintained, and comfortable. We arrived several hours before check-in time after a long journey from Asia, and they were... More

Opera is a pretty hotel with well-furnished rooms, a great staff, an okay breakfast, and even a little pool and sauna. For a romantic getaway where you won't be leaving your room, I'm sure it's great. But if you are in Bogota on business, or you're a single woman, this is probably not the place you want to stay.

Hotel is located in the old city but all the restaurants and bars are in the new city so it takes about 30 minutes to go with a taxi and about 20 pesos. Other than that staff was helpful and kind. Standard rooms are just like the name, standard and does not have a soul. Colonial rooms are better options.

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
