“Close to Zona Rosa & Good for gym bunnies”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

I usually stay at the Embassy Suites but was booked here by my local office. The hotel fronts onto a small square and a park which is popular with local morning joggers.Rooms are minimalist but spacious with large windows. I would advise a side room as those at the front can suffer from traffic noise.
Two minor issues with the rooms are the lack of courtesy water - which given the rooms are US200 should be included. Secondly for a business hotel the lack of stationery in the room was quite annoying. These could be quite easily corrected by management.

What I particularly enjoyed was the courtesy pass to a local gym. This was about 2 blocks away and had a good range of equipment, weights and classes. Although quite compact, it was never too busy during the peak times. This is a lot better than the usual tired hotel gym with its 2 pieces of cardio and the token weights. Another bonus is the presence of bikes for the use of guests. This was particularly good on Sundays when several of the main streets in Bogota close to traffic and bikes take over the city. Despite what the hotel says, a cycle to the Historical Centre is only about a 40 minute leisurely ride. There is also a rooftop swimming pool which is very welcome at the end of the day.

Staff were pretty friendly and ready to help. The hotel has its own restaurant which I didn't try however the varied pickings of Zona Rosa are a 5-7 minute walk away. Breakfasts are served in a very pleasant outside terrace, however this was average compared to the Embassy Suites.

All in all, a reasonable place to stay for business.

We spent two nights here to conclude our travels around Columbia. The hotel is clean, the staff were helpful thou it was hard at times to find someone that spoke english, but we always did in the end. The hotel taxi was cheaper to go to the Andres Carne De Res then the public ones, then more expensive to go to the airport the next day. The HEATED roof top pool was great with amazing views and we borrowed the bikes for a nice ride in the parks. They have a gym to go to, but I loved the public ones in the park so much that I just used them. The included breakfast was great.

Cite Hotel was booked for me by local office staff, and it was an excellent choice. Staff very helpful, food good and comfortable rooms. The desk team was really helpful when I found my European plugs and adaptors whould not work (Colombia is 110V) and produced a transformer for me, which saved my bacon as i was running a training course for 3 days based around a laptop!

Good base also to explore local area and the many local restaurants.

I had a company event for all my Latin American partners in Bogota, and we all stayed at the Cité, innitially due to its location. In the end, the hotel was perfect in every sense: well organised and professional in every way. With some 20 rooms booked with different check-in/out times, everything ran smoothly and efficiently. Breakfast was good and bar services (also room service) were nice. Rooms are excellent, very spacious and comfortable, very clean and with great amenities. I like working out during my business trips and I had free access to a nearby gym which was good enough. I definitely recommend this hotel. Only issue was a wi-fi internet that oscilated a lot, especially when using a smartphone.

Room Tip: I stayed in the elegance suite, however the regular de luxe was also very nice.

Service was good and rooms very clean and modern. The location of the hotel is very near some top shopping centers in Bogota. We were a big group all staying at the hotel and we were very well treated by some very professional staff.

We had a most enjoyable stay at the Cite for four nights in early May 2013. The facilities are great, our room was vary spacious and well-equipped and the small roof-top pool is lovely.

We had two concerns with our room on arrival. Being at the end of a corridor, our room was cold and the wi-fi signal not strong enough for our iPads. Within minutes the hotel brought a heater and a wi-fi router to connect to the wall outlet - our own wi-fi network!

Breakfast each morning, included in our rate, was very nice with a selection of omelettes and waffles, local and international breads, freshly squeezed juices and so on. Hotel staff were warm and friendly, spoke good English and couldn't do enough to help.

Room Tip: Our standard king-size room was huge and well-equipped - ideal.

this hotel is a very comfortable friendly boutique hotel. northing is too much trouble from room service to changing money. very comfortable, clean, and in a good location. Lot's of places to look at and if going somewhere else in this very spread out city, the hotel will arrange their own taxi service to take you and bring you back if needed. Excellent breakfast and restaurant food excellent as well as the bar.

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking the park, great outlook
