“Disappointing!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2009

The basic flaw of this hotel is that all the rooms are different sizes and you are charged the same rate (about $186 per night) whether you get a large, nicer room or a cubbyhole (which I got). Ask to see the room you'll get BEFORE you accept it. And try to get a room with a view of the pretty square in front. I've been to Bogotá on five separate business trips and am trying out the different hotels each trip. This was my greatest disappointment. My stay was for five nights and I should have spoken up at the beginning but was so busy with meetings that I didn't take the time to complain. After I checked out, I had time before I had to go to the airport so I asked for a tour of the rooms. What a surprise! Remember, fore-warned is fore-armed! Speak up when you check in and walk out if you're offered a cubbyhole. For the same money you can do better somewhere else.

  • Liked — its location
  • Disliked — For the same price I paid, I could have gotten a room twice the size with a nicer bathroom and view.

This is a very nice hotel. The room was clean, the staff were friendly and accomodating and if not for one thing I would give the hotel higher scores.

Unfortunately, I had a big problem my last two nights there. My window faced the street where all the clubs were. Around the 1am hour when everyone was leaving, traffic got out of control with people catching cabs and there was nonstop honking and yelling for hours.

This was unacceptable and just too loud. If you stay there then request a room not facing the streets below. Otherwise you will really enjoy your stay.

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to travel to Bogota, Colombia because of his work. We stayed at the
Hotel Morrison in Bogota and had a really nice time.

The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff was very helpful and always ready to help you.

They have a free breakfast buffet which was very good.

The location of this hotel is really good, walking distance to all kinds of restaurants and shopping areas. You can feel safe walking in this area as well.

Bogota is a beautiful city and we were fortunate to have a wonderful family from Bogota that took us all over the city to
many wonderful places. There is much history to see in this beautiful country!

I would suggest the Morrison to all my friends and family!

The position of the hotel is great...everything just some step away including restaurants, malls and nightlife.
The hotel building is nice, well maintained, a bit poor the reception...practically you have to stop on the road and wait that somebody of the staff see you. Otherwise you have to leave your cases on the taxi or car and call for help.
Frequently the reservation office of the hotel does not keep records...be sure to print your reservation you will avoid discussions at the front desk.
Quite willing to repair mistakes...I got a free upgrade once I was asking for a smoking room park view and I got non smoking and road view (A bit noisy)
Brakfast...quite normal...not 5 stars!
Need some more attention at the front desk....finally something could be done to rise the quality.
Quite positive the impression on the rooms and house keeping. Everything is very clean!

Stayed here on a buisness trip from 8-15 thru the 17th. The hotel is nice in a great location. The rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast buffet was simple and tasty and was included. Made to order eggs,bread,fresh fruit,etc. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The only problem I encountered was that local calls under 3 minutes are free. I made a one minute local call and was charged that I was on the phone for 6 minutes. So, I discussed it with the front desk and they took the charge off the bill. But, I always check my bill wherever I go, so that is practice for me. I would recommend this hotel. Its also in a great area with lots of restaurants, supermarkets,banks,etc. Safe too!

When we arrived in this hotel we were greeted warmly, it was our honeymoon and the hotel had arranged flowers, champagne, chocolate strawberries and a gift of a picture frame! We had a nice large room and bathroom and the hotel is located in a great area full of bars and restaurants so we were very pleased overall.

We had two negative experiences, firstly the concierge arranged a tour of Bogota and Salt Cathedral (worth a visit) and having agreed to pay US$80 for the entire trip, the driver tried to charge us US$130 saying that the US$80 was only for the Salt Cathedral portion of the trip. The concierge apologised afterwards and said that he hadn't been able to explain the price to us properly in English. Also when we were checking out we had to wait and argue for 30 mins to get the correct amount charged for our 2-night stay and the receptionist seemed clueless to say the least. If you're staying here bring your e-mail of confirmation of the price as it was the only thing that saved us from vast overcharging.

Finally, to give the hotel their due, when I left my wedding ring behind, they put it in a taxi for me to the airport (I paid for the taxi) and it saved me a lot of hassle, I thought it a nice gesture considering the row over the bill!

So, we'd recommend the hotel generally as long as you get as nice a room as us, but watch your bills!

Hotel Morrison has good reviews on Tripadvisor, and frankly we were somewhat disappointed when we booked on the basis of those reviews. . Fortunately on our second stay in Bogota we stayed at Casa Real, and the differences were very significant. So see my review of Casa Real.
As noted by other reviewers, Hotel Morrison is located in an area of restaurants and stores. We felt very safe in the area as we did in other areas we went to in Colombia. The breakfast was very good, and we had access to internet which was much appreciated. We had no issues with the hotel staff.
However the room was very small- about 12 X 12 feet. Between the bed, desk and dresser, there was little space and stubbing your toe on the bed support was easily achieved. There was no comfortable chair to relax and read a paper.
The bathroom was less than 5X5 feet plus a shower with a questionable shower head. The towels were "hard". The bed mattress was also hard and not very comfortable. A litre of water was approximately $4-5 US.
This is purely a business hotel- a place to sleep and no more. It was not a good refuge from an active day of touring Bogota.
The best rate we could get was near $150 US per night, and I don't think it was worth it.
