“Exceptional location, wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2005

A friend of a friend who lives in Bogota recommended this hotel for a last minute business trip. Traveled extensively throughout Latin America, but had never been to Colombia and was a little hesitant given the negative press. What a surprise!!! Really liked the city--parts of it, in the north section of town, reminded me a lot of residential streets in Madrid. Bogota really has lots to offer culturally and socially and it's a shame more tourists don't make it there, especially as the country has made large strides in personal safety.

The hotel, while small (99 rooms) is ideally located, about two blocks from the Centro Andino Mall. The area is full of restuarants, stores, theaters, etc. and I had no hesitation walking around late at night, along with the many, many people who were enjoying the cool Bogota nights. The staff is very helpful and courteous, especially the concierge on duty with whom I had only a brief conversation, but who managed to remember my name throughout my stay. The room was somewhat larger than your average chain hotel room and included a full mini-bar, in-room safe, over 70 tv channels, a dvd player, WIFI access and all other amenities you would expect from a hotel of this caliber. And while this is clearly a city, not an airport, hotel, they do offer a courtesy airport shuttle.

If I have any complaints about the Sofitel, it would be the room service. The quality of the food I ordered (dinner and breakfast) were both good (especially the breakfast) and it's offered 24 hours, which is a major plus. However, for some reason, the staff cannot leave the carts in the room, and at least at dinner, they will not leave a tray. I travel lots for business and lots of my hotel time, is my relax time. I like to eat on the bed watching tv, but that was impossible in this case, and the only way to eat the meal was at a table in the room from where the tv was not visible. Not fun when you're eating in a room by yourself. Further, as there's no cart or tray to leave outside the door, the dirty plates were in my room until the following morning. I could have called the restaurant to have them picked up, but by the time I'd finished eating, it was past 11 p.m. and I just wanted to sleep. They really should get a few trays; it would help. I also think the food selections were a bit limited as the dinner food seems to come from the French restaurant downstairs. I think adding some lighter fare, in addition to what's offered, wouldn't hurt.

Other than this minor complaint, I have nothing but good things to report on the Sofitel and would recommended it as the place to stay in Bogota.
