We got a pretty cheap 3 to 4 star rate and that's exactly how it felt. Sonesta's five stars shine dimly behind an, although hygienic, slightly scrappy and careless cleaning in bathroom. There's a nightclub somewhere in the same building and from our room on the fifth floor the thumping base was both heard and felt, though not too bad... More

Being very tired after a long flight I went to bed but sleep was not possible due to the thudding bass from a group playing... More

This is a high-quality hotel that we found for a really good price. It seems like a 4 star hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, of course. We had a huge marble walk-in shower in our standard room. The buffet breakfast is great, it was included, and had things that you wouldn't normally find at a breakfast buffet, like... More

Check in and check out was fast, which is usually rare in hotels in Colombia. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. Nice shower and sleep quality. Breakfast is included in the room fee, and it is good enough. Had no problems with smells reported by other travelers.
