I am a native of Colombia, and i have lived in bogota, but i currently love in Milwaukee, WI. My family and i recently took a trip to colombia and we decided to stay here because previous good experiences with estelar hotels.
First, the hotel is not located near the historic center of bogota, so dont expect being able to walk to the historic old center, you have to take a cab.
Second, the hotel is located in the heart of the modern northside of bogota, next to the oldest and best shopping mall of Bogota, along with a corner full of restaurants, bars and nightlife. Very safe area and you can walk around without worrying at anytime.
Honestly, the historic are of the Candelaria and bolivar square are neat and everything but they are dangerous areas at night, full of homeless and beggars.
Third. this is the best place to stay because you are located strategically in the middle of the city, you can take a cab from here to the historic center and come back here at night to relax and lay back.
Fourth, food is a little overpriced. This is the case with all Estelar hotels, i mean yeah you can sit down and relax with a little more personal service but the food is no that great for the prices.
Fifth, the service is overall great! room service is pretty great!
Sixth and final, the rooms are a little cold, the windows dont keep the heat in pretty well, so if you cant deal with a little cold that might be a problem.
overall this is the best hotel in Bogota! you get what you pay for and more! i will keep coming and you should too!
