Travelers' Choice
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.

I stayed 2 nights and wished I had more. This will be my first stop next time. The hotel is well maintained and the amenities are great. Thing thing I liked most was the people, particularly Luis and Alison. They were just so helpful and patient. My Spanish wasn’t the greatest but they made it so so much easier and even enjoyable. Their cook Alex (?) made some delicious Colombian food. I don’t usually write review but they were worth it. I hope they maintain this quality of service Yo quedé 2 noches y ojalá tuviera más. Esta será mi primera parada la próxima vez. El hotel está bien cuidado y los servicios son estupendas. Lo que más me gustaba era la gente, sobre todo Luis y Alison. Eran tan útiles y pacientes. Mi español no era bien, pero lo hicieron mucho más fácil e incluso agradable. El cocinero Alex (?) hizo gran comida colombiana. Normalmente no escribo críticas, pero valían la pena. Espero que mantengan esta calidad del servicio

The staff at Hotel de la Opera took good care of us in this beautifully situated refurbished hotel. Our room had an utterly striking view of the city. Breakfast was fantastic - especially before the conference attendees arrived! Homemade tamales, arepas, changua - incredible! We slept very well; the only downside was that people are not courteous by the elevators and the sound resonates quite a bit. Only used the pool once, but it was great! I am selecting "couples" because I was there with my partner, but the reason for the visit was to give a talk.

Such a charming quaint hotel. Refurbished colonial building, but maintains plenty of charm and nostalgia. Excellent staff and quality food in lower restaurant. Excellent breakfast with omelet/fried egg service . 4th floor restaurant closed during our visit. There is an elevator and they do have handicapped rooms, but lots of steps everywhere. There is a spa, but I did not check out the specific services offered. Plenty of antiques everywhere. Small chapel on 2nd floor.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Our room was very quiet and had everything that we needed. It is a lovely quaint building and is in the perfect location for visiting the old town. Although there are many restaurants nearby we only ate out at one as were slightly nervous of venturing too far at night - maybe it was unfounded but we ate a couple of evening meals at the hotel - both of which were good. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. We have no idea what we paid for our stay at the hotel as it was part of our package from the UK.
