Small hotel close to the Opera house in the old town and not far from main square and presidential palace.
Bufféstyle breakfast and nice for lunch and dinner.
Don´t forget to go to the Botero museum, it is just a few blocks away.

Room Tip: The hotel has different style and types of rooms, make sure to have a look before you accept a room.

We stayed two nights in the Candelaria area of old Bogota. The hotel was in a great location. Our room was very loud the fist night and we were moved to the back without problems. The character of the area made it seem like we were on vacation in an exotic locale. To be honest, our travel agent had booked us in the newer part of town because of safety concerns. Part of our city tour would have been to walk around the area we were staying in. We felt safe the entire time. The restaurants we walked to where like eating in someone's home. They were small, quaint, and every dish was prepared just for us. The spa at the hotel was a secret treasure.

Room Tip: Interior rooms are much quiter

The Hotel de la Opera is a short walk to the Plaza de Bolivar and close to many museums and restaurants. The rooms are modest but have everything that you'll need. Many rooms face indoors to the courtyard and can be noisey. Bathrooms have only a shower. Free internet is available on the ground floor. Breakfast is served on the top floor and has a pretty good selection of breakfast items as well as eggs to order. There is an indoor pool on the lower level of the hotel.

It is a good option for couples spending a couple of days in Bogota. Great location! Perfect to go around the downtown area. Good restaurants and museums near by. Beautiful view from the room that we were. Delicious breakfast and very helpful staff.

Room Tip: Floor 7! It's nice and quiet there.

I stayed at this hotel last week on a quick first-time visit to Bogota. The hotel is okay, but I was expecting a little bit more based on the hotel's website.

First the good:
1. The hotel is located smack in the middle of La Candelaria in a beautiful old building.
2. The staff were all very friendly.
3. Very nice breakfast included in the room price.
4. I found the spa to be quite nice for a small hotel.

And the not so good:
1. Despite the fact that I had a printed e-mail confirmation of my reservation when I arrived, the hotel had no record of my booking. I has reserved (and preferred) a room in the older portion of the hotel, but they were not able to honor the reservation in that regard. No explanation or apology was offered and instead they just kind of pretended like it hadn't happened. Obviously I never got to see the more traditional rooms, but the "deco" rooms were rather charmless and drab with dated furniture.
2. While the hotel is good for sightseeing during the day, the surrounding area is absolutely desolate once the sun goes down. There is not an open restaurant or bar anywhere at night. To have any real dining/nightlife options you have to take a 20-25 minute cab ride to the northern part of the city.
3. I was put off by the emphasis on tipping. There are signs throughout the hotel stating that a gratuity is added to your bill, but such gratuity is optional and you can request that it be removed. How awkward for the guest! You have to affirmatively state that you do not want to tip them or else they just add it to your bill?!? The added gratuity was not significant, but in my opinion, the decision to tip should always be at the guest's discretion and they should not be made to feel uncomfortable by having to state that they do not wish to do so. One evening I said I was going to Zona Rosa. Instead of flagging down one of the million yellow taxis, the hotel just gave me a driver affiliated with the hotel. Upon arriving in Zona Rosa in addition to charging me an inflated fare (as compared to what I paid a yellow taxi on my return), the driver specifically said "this does not include the tip." I have to say on this issue the Hotel de la Opera is really poor.
4. The "gym" is basically non-existent.
