We were booked there for one night, and the hotel is very modern and the staff is friendly. Our room had an extra wide bed and a wonderful whirlpool which was very much appreciated after a hard week.
The problem was with other 'circumstances' surrounding the hotel. First, a journalist friend of one of my colleagues stopped in for a drink and told us that it's a dangerous neighborhood and not to even walk around the block...in daylight!
Then in the middle of the night, my other colleague got a phone call from the receptionist saying that someone was coming upstairs to visit and when they send the visitor up and my friend opens his door, it's a call girl! He sent her away and immediately went down to the front desk to ask what time of 'service' they were running on unsuspecting house guests. That was a bit shocking.
But...Colombia is Colombia, I guess.
