The hotel doesn't have great amenities or extras, like a pool or gym..... But, the staff are friendly and the location is pretty good - in the middle of the Zona Rosa. The rooms are spacious but not massive. They are clean, comfortable, have a view, mini fridge, AC and safety deposit box. TV is all Spanish. Bad is a... More

The Acqua Express Hotel is a nice spot that is a very good value. The rooms are nice and clean. The wifi works well, the shower has good pressure, and the location is as good as it gets. The cleaning crew takes care of the room daily and sometimes organizes your stuff. The staff in the lobby are all helpful,... More

We had room 606 and it was quite nice except for two minor annoyances really. One was that the towels were really scratchy to the skin after a shower, and in this particular shower there is a large column that takes up a good section of where you move about. I'm just a bit picky I guess. Other than that,... More

I stayed in two different locations in Poblado, and this hotel was by far the better choice. It is only two blocks away from the chaos of parque lleras, so far enough away to enjoy a bit of solitude (two minutes) but close enough to dive into the rowdiness. What's more, the bars and restaurants (especially the restaurants) on this... More

On the face of it, not too bad. But then something goes wrong and it shows their true colours! Basically, the room safe broke, with all my things inside ! They couldn't/wouldn't fix it at 10pm and swore someone would be with me at 7am. They were not. Three phone calls later they came and unlocked it. The safe broke... More

The staff is very friendly but make sure you get a working Ac in your room. They'll offer you a fan instead but stand your ground and demand another room! This place is super clean, the free breakfast is good and it's in walking distance to parque lleras. There is nightlife everywhere around you and it's safe. My only complaint... More

I stayed 2 nights. Always hot water at decent pressure when I wanted. Noise from parties in clubs nearby not too bad, but I used ear plugs for sleeping anyway. Staff is very nice no problems. Seems really safe lots of cops and soldiers with heavy arms patrol the area nearby. The location is pretty nice very close to Parque... More

I reserved a stay at this hotel because I saw the handicap ramp and elevators for access to upper floors. However, there is only one elevator and sometimes I had to wait for the staff to move laundry from one floor to the other. The a/c remote only allowed to change room temperature not adjust fan speed. The shower only... More

We stayed 3 nights. El Poblado, an upscale neighborhood. The rooms are quiet, basic and spotlessly clean. Limited English spoken, but staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast provides a decent start to the day. Coffee machine and watercooler in the lobby. There are numerous restaurants & bars within a 5 minute walk. Safe to walk at night. Many small... More
