Great for familyPosted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: Architecture, staff and food
Cons: Inform patrons of cost of local phone calls.
The apartments are great for family, with beautiful gardens and a kids play area. Breakfast is included and is typical Colombian big breakfast, which is delicious, esp. Chocolate drink. Reasonably priced for really high end service and facilities.

Great hotel complex close to a shopping mall.Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: Great service and variety of options.
Cons: There is no heat in the rooms; Bogota can get a little cold during the night. A central heating system will work great.
Location: Location is good - unless you need to go to the south side a lot. Unicentro Shopping Mall is helpful (there is a 24/7 supermarket there!)
This large hotel complex offers a variety of options for your stay. You can stay at a hotel room or suite, or at an apartment. The restaurants at the hotel offer an outstanding menu with local and international selections; it's a bit pricey but the service and food are superb. You have plenty of other dinning options just across the hotel, at the Unicentro Shopping Mall, where several restaurants and cafes offer services. Be aware of the time it might take for you to get to this hotel from Bogota's airport during morning and evening rush hour. It's not a long distance to travel (about 11 miles), but the "trancones" (traffic jams) in Bogota are ubiquitous and recurrent, especially in the morning and evening hours. If your travel plans will take you to the old downtown area, you'll be better off staying closer. However, if your travel plans will take you to the central-north part of Bogota, you will have no major issues going back and forth - except during rush hour. Other good hotel options can be located within Zona T (Centro Comercial Andino, Centro Comercial El Retiro, and Centro Comercial Atlantis), but the noise might keep you awake at night. In addition, there are several great hotels around Parque de la 93, but none of these hotels can compare in size and level of service to Hotel Estelar. Another great choice is the Casa Dann Carlton, close to Parque de la 93; it's a superb hotel, but it cannot compete with the variety and size of La Fontana.

Everything was phenomenal!Posted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: We loved everything. The elegance of the hotel, the staff, the rooftop jacuzzi, the breakfast service. It was fantastic.
Cons: It was very surprising to find out that my husband was not allowed to come in to the restaurant for breakfast because he was wearing shorts.
Location: The location was great. Unicentro is a great mall to visit and find many things. Street 127 is important but currently going through construction.
Rooms, excellent. Rooftop private jacuzzi, excellent. Breakfast buffet, excellent. Service, excellent. Laundry, room service, concierge, excellent. Location, excellent. The hotel was big and open unlike many hotels in Bogota. It was surrounded by green areas (parks). It's pet friendly. The apartments are very comfortable and updated. The lobby is very elegant. Their taxi service was helpful and prices reasonable. Best hotel we've ever stayed in. Seriously

Low Service Great Customer CarePosted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
While the service lacked being done in a timely manner, they more than made up for it in customer care. At the restaurant you may have to get up to ask for water if you want it in the first 20 mins, but they will carry it to your table and give you great service afterwords. As for the Apartments they have no insulation what-so-ever. So you will hear everything, birds, parties, etc. Almost every Saturday they host a wedding party that will play loud music. If you wish to sleep good luck as it doesn't wrap up till 2am. They ended up moving me to a suite for that night, because of the music being so loud. However the suite's are dead quite and peaceful so consider this for your hotel stay if your staying on the weekends. Overall very safe and very comfortable. Central is around 30-45 mins away and so is the Airport. Its not located next to very much other than the large mall right by the front door which will cover most of your needs. TIP: Always pre-check taxi cost as they will try to take more if your not careful. They offer hotel taxi's of which are more expensive but worth the extra safety. Overall they will go out of there way to make sure your having a fantastic stay.

We absolutely loved our stay at La Fontana/EstelarPosted Feb 20, 2014
Pros: The apartment was nicely appointed and a peaceful retreat
Location: Unicentro is across the street - it is not the biggest Mall in Bogota but, it is clean and active and has the best gelato in South America
You will not feel safer any where else in Bogota than at the Estelar Apartments The brick courtyard with its chapel and Los Arcos restaurant is like nothing else in Colombia The terraces on the Estelar roof tops are spectacular for photos anytime of the day. Everything you need is within walking distance.
