We wanted to be in Candelaria, the oldest part of the city. This little hotel has 14 rooms I think. We had a nice room in the roof, last assent was via a narrow spiral staircase. Definitely not wheelchair accessible. But the room was nice, if a bit cool and the shower had good hot water. Muisca is at the top of a long hill, if you can't handle a steep hill at 8700' you will need to take taxis, but we had no problem. It's very quiet in the roof, others complained of noisy rooms, I could imagine that, the walls are thin and there are lots of steps that are a bit noisy. Our biggest disappointment was breakfast, we weren't expecting a massive American buffet. The choice was simple, eggs scrambled, dri ish bread, juice, coffee and a fruit. But it left us hungry and yearning good coffee each morning.
But the staff were super friendly, let us abuse their language with a smile and made us feel welcome.
If we return to Bogota, we'd probably stay again.
BTW you can drink the water!
