We chose this hotel for it's location - Candelaria. The thought was that if we are going to stay a few days in Bogota, it would be best to be in the historic center so that we are close to the sights. The premise had merit but unless you are a 20-30 year old, think again.
Let me explain. The hotel is cozy with a great breakfast and staff (the Italian owner was more than helpful) however the area is filled with university students who party late into the night. Even with a rear facing room, the sounds carried from the street. Moreover, the area is not safe at night so even walking to a restaurant down the block made us super cautious. However, on the flipside, during the day, one is walking distance to all of the sights.
So, if you want to be close to the Gold Museum and other sites, stay here BUT have the hotel call a taxi and head to North Bogota for dinner. AND be extra careful - this is after all, Bogota.
PS: Make sure you get a heater for your room as the windows are not thermal pane and it gets chilly at night.
