I felt very welcome at the modern Morrison Hotel 114. Everyone was very gracious and helpful, and the room was excellent. Cable TV, free WiFi, modern and functional bathroom, etc. The neighborhood seems quite safe, and there are many apartment buildings nearby, along with a small park. For visiting the historic areas of Bogota, the hotel is only about 3 blocks to the TransMilenio express bus system.
There are some good and not-so-good aspects of the hotel's location. Avenida 19 near the hotel is lined with restaurants, and there is a fair amount of shopping on Calle 116, within a 5 minute walk. There's an "express" branch of the Exito supermarket chain across the street from the hotel. It's less than 2 km to the massive Unicentro shopping mall, with a movie multiplex, a department store, and everything else that you might expect to find in a mall. Taxis are cheap, so it's easy to get there from the hotel, though I walked both directions just to see the neighborhood. It's a bit further to the restaurants and other activities near Parque 93, but the hotel makes a good base for exploring the modern neighborhoods of Bogota.More
