“good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Everything was much better than expected - smart, clean rooms.
Owner was very helpful giving pointers for attractions, where to go, where to eat for lunch and dinner etc.
Location is great, just outside the bustling centre but still close to the "movida"!
Would definitely recommend and go back.

Nice colonial B&B. We had the suite, that was nice but the upper part is just not very user friendly. Location was nice for exploring the old town. Beware of the sounds on the street, very loud music until the middle of the night on saturday. Breakfast is what you can expect. Very nice baked eggs and toast and some fresh juice.

We stayed here as a treat for my girlfriend's birthday. The owners/guys that work there were lovely. They gave us loads of tips of things to do in Bogota, and even a Birthday cake! We stayed one night in one of the 2nd floor rooms which was very nice, but on our second and third night we were upgraded to the penthouse suite which was just amazing!

In a good location, near the arty / jazzy / student area of Bogata.

OK so I've given this place a three stars because my partner and I were messed around quite a bit during our stay here. The actual hotel was gorgeous inside! Use of colour is amazing and there is a really nice freshness around with fresh flowers and plants. The first night we stayed in what
seemed like a spill-over room right next to the dining space. In the morning it was extremely noisy. We were moved to a new room the next night, which was much nicer, but things just felt a little hap-hazard. The location of the hotel is good for exploring Bogota's, but our arrival late at night was a little bit sketchy, as the number above the door was faded badly and there is no signage. We probably wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Have some communication regarding your room ahead of time.

Stayed for Friday and Saturday night on second floor. Hotel design is beautiful, and the owner has huge bouquets of roses and other flowers everywhere. The knicknacks and decorations are adorable. The breakfast (juice, fruit, omelet, croissant, coffee) is fresh, and well cooked. The staff is friendly, and Andres, the night concierge, was extremely helpful to set us up for a day tour of salt cathedral and guatavita by private car through a legit tour company.

HOWEVER, what killed all this was lack of soundproofing. We could hear perfectly all the conversations and noises on the street outside (which included blaring loud music Friday night), and also, the first and second floor share a window, so we could hear everything below us as well. Furthermore, the bathrooms (at least in our room) are only half done and separated from the main room by a sheet of OSB and a flimsy room divider. I would not stay here again if I hoped to get a decent night's sleep.

Room Tip: The higher (and further away from the street), the better. It was too noisy for us to sleep at night...

We stayed two nights at this funky boutique hotel. Pros: a) the top floor penthouse was spacious and had two double beds one of which was in a loft with a ceiling made of glass. b) location was perfect, you walked outside to the plaza where Bogota was born and there would be street performers playing music, engaged in a mime or political comedy. Chorro is surrounded by universities so it was interesting to see the next generation of Colombians, c) staff (consisting of university students) spoke excellent English and were very friendly and d) location again within 6 blocks of all of the old city sites. Neg.s: a) the bed in the master bed room had a deep valley in the middle so one of us had to sleep upstairs, b) noise level can be distracting, when the hotel is completely occupied you can hear 4-5 conversations going on at the same time. Likewise the neighborhood was pretty noisy with barking dogs, et al. but it seem to magically get quiet by around 11:30pm, and c) the circular stairs are challenging and there is no lift for luggage. The male receptionist helped us get our luggage upstairs, but there was only a petite female staff member when we left so we were on our own.

Advice --- bring a good pair of ear plugs, rent the top floor room, sleep in the loft but move the bed so it is on the East Wall (you will get an extra hour without direct sun) and also bring eye masks if you are sensitive to light changes.

We stayed in the penthouse suite, and were blown away despite having seen pictures and having read the other raving reviews. The B&B is colorful and quirky, the view is incredible, the location perfect. Water pressure and temperature were great, even up in the suite. We highly recommend this place. Breakfast was simple and consisted of fresh juice, papaya and banana, croissants and eggs. We loved the yuca bread, for instance, available at many nearby bakeries.
It would have been nice if there was someone around during the day who spoke English to help us with our many questions. Obviously we should just learn Spanish, so this wouldn't be a problem. In the evening & night there was someone who spoke good English to help us out.
There is a kitchen in the suite, and they let us borrow some pans, but otherwise it's not well stocked.

Room Tip: The suite is incredible, but not at all child-proof. There are large parts where a curious toddler c...
