Anandmayi is a true gem in the chaos of Bogota. You will find it difficult to do anything quickly or early while you are in Bogota because you will just want to spend long mornings lazing in a hammock in the beautiful gardens full of bonsai trees, flowers and water features. It has a genuine Buddhist feel about the place. The showers are hot, the staff are lovely and they keep a fire going constantly in the dining area which is amazing for the cold mornings.
Only complaints, the bed in the first room we had was not at all comfortable, it appeared to be made of straw. But they moved us to another room. Also the communication when booking was very poor and I see this is a common problem with other guests.
