We traveled around Colombia for 2 weeks and this was one of our favorite hotels. Prior to the trip, I sent a few emails to the staff at this hotel and they responded very promptly. We arrived in Bogota very early in the morning, and our arranged driver was waiting for us. We were also very relieved that we could check in early (for a small extra fee) since we were exhausted from the trip.
This hotel is a tranquil haven in the Candelaria area of Bogota. You can walk to the Plaza Bolivar in less than 10 minutes and the Museo Botero is also close by. We felt very safe walking in the Candelaria district and to and from the hotel. The hotel staff advised us to take a taxi if we planned to be out past 8pm. Calle 10 near this hotel is quite empty at night so the hotel did call us a taxi when we went to La Macarena district for dinner (this area has good mid-priced restaurants). Near the hotel, we enjoyed the tamales at La Puerta Falsa, as another reviewer mentioned. We didn't mind walking up the hill on the way back to the hotel. This ended up being a small hill compared to others we walked up in Colombia.
The staff at this hotel are very helpful, the rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. The first room we stayed in was "cozy" so we asked if we could have a larger room when we returned to Bogota at the end of our trip. They put us in room 14, which is extremely spacious. We just wished we had more time to enjoy this beautiful room!
We enjoyed having a nice breakfast on the terrace, which overlooks the city. There is also a pretty patio area with a few water features that makes a nice place to relax after a long day.
If you are looking for a hotel with some character, this is an excellent option. We will stay here again when we return to Bogota.
