“Good Hotel for Budget Travelers to Bogota”
This is an excellent hotel if you travel on a budget and want to be in the center of everything. Walking distance to the "transmilenio" bus system and 5 minutes ride to Simon Bolivar Park. Looks like a family hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and will give you advice about what you need. For example, I wanted to visit Zipaquira Salt Catedral and the manager told me how to do paying 10% of what a commercial tour would charge. Again, excellent service and directions to travelers. Here is one tricky thing, that was the first time that happened to me after years of booking with Expedia. In this hotel, Expedia will guarantee your reservation but they wil not charge your credit card for the stay. Yo will have to pay for the stay at the hotel, in cash and in Colombian pesos. So, take that into account.
It´s a great hotel and the people there feel you like home.
“Most helpful staff”
Most helpful staff that I have ever seen in a hotel!
“Great value, friendly and helpful staff!”
The staff in this small hotel went far out of their way to help us, treating us as though we were family. I don't know how we would have managed our stay in Bogota without their assistance after my wallet was pick pocketed downtown and I needed to cancel my credit cards. They even drove me to a bank to convert cash. The room was immaculately clean though somewhat small. Compared to other hotels in Bogota, Hotel Casa Paulina is a total bargain. There are some good restaurants within walking distance, and the Trans-Millennio transportation system is within a 2 or 3 block walk for access to downtown. There is a bank across the street that has an ATM. The neighborhood seems safe during the day.
“Adequate, good for the price”
Good for the price, clean, near food sites, markets and currency exchange (just walking). The staff is attentive. The only problem is that they don`t accept credit cards and even if reserved by expedia, you must pay in cash.
“Recommend clean, friendly, and safe but no frills hotel”
My family of four stayed at Casa Paulina for 3 nights. Staff was friendly, efficient, and welcoming, and the hotel is immaculate and felt very safe. Best rates I could find on the internet. Neighborhood is very conveniently located, especially for the price, but not great (didn't feel confident walking alone at night). Although each room has a TV, the rooms are quite small, there are no phones in room and no internet for guest use at the hotel (I used a phone/internet place two doors down the street), and room must be paid for in cash each day (or all nights in advance).
They do not allow guests in your room even for 15 minutes. They offer a "meeting place" in the reception (they call it TV room) but you cannot have a private conversation there. You are practically sitting next to the receptionist. Be sure not to take the rooms that face to the front street. The noise from the street is enormous. No air conditioner so you have to keep the window open while you in the room. Hot water only in the shower not in the sink so with the city temperature shaving and washing your face is pretty nasty.
