Unbeatable location in La Candelaria. Great breakfast with a variety of choices. Charming common areas. Relaxing pool and saunas. Huge bathroom. Comfortable beds. Quiet room (at least on the 7th floor). Excellent front desk service. My only complaint, which is very minor, is that there is a motion sensor light outside the bathroom that flicks on when you get up... More

The Hotel de la Opera is a charming old-fashioned hotel, ideally located in the historical center of the city. You can walk from there to most of the best places to visit (including the Cerro de Monterrate). The rooms are nice, wide and well decorated in a colonial style. Service is top notch, with a friendly staff. The hotel has... More

I had a room on the 7th floor, and initially was disappointed not to be in a colonial-era room for the furnishings and historical significance. The adjustment was fast, as the space was roomy, with a beautiful view of the city. The hotel is close to the Museum of Bogota, the Botero Museum, the Military Museum, and the Gold Museum.... More

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
