Clean safe hotel close to a major university

4 out of 5
Posted Oct 3, 2016
Clean and safe hotel with very nice staff in front of Javeriana University in the main artery of Bogota : carrera septima. 40 minute walk to the Gold Museum and the historic downtown district and if you go in the opposite direction you can reach the elegant Zona Rosa. If you do not want to walki, taxis are many and relatively cheap from there.

Great Value

Posted Nov 4, 2015
Pros: breakfast, tv channel variety, location, staff was extremely helpful
Cons: sound proofing, bigger shower
Location: You're close to everything, maybe a bit far to walk for some stuff but just a short cab ride away from every tourist attraction.
The hotel is in a great area. It's close to all the major attractions. Can't complain about that at all. The breakfast is an actual full breakfast, fruit, coffee, fresh juice, cereal, bread, eggs. It was a nice surprise in the morning. The staff was extremely accommodating and nice.If you stay along the major road, it gets loud. I didn't mind it but my girlfriend hates noise so we moved rooms, which had no issues. The bed was a little stiff for my taste but my girlfriend loved it and slept like a baby. Also, the tv had great variety if you just wanted to relax for a bit. I got caught up on "The Walking Dead" lol. The only real complaint is that the shower is small, very small. It's just big enough for one person but you couldn't really move around in there. I think it was as big is the little closet but the water was hot and the pressure was good. I'm sure other rooms have a bigger shower but we just got stuck with that one. That's pretty much it. The staff really made up for whatever was lacking.

Construction, slow wifi and Freezing rooms!

1 out of 5
by from USA
Posted Jan 29, 2014
This hotel has a lot of potential, but it was undergoing remodeling when I stayed there -- construction dust made everything dirty, and the restaurant was closed. The worse part was that the rooms are FREEZING! I had to sleep in my jacket and hat, thick socks, etc. Bogota is chilly, and this hotel had no climate control at all. The wifi was also very slow and intermittent -- while trying to upload a work project online, the internet speed was only 8kb/second (usually 250-325/kb/second in most hotels). They keep the front door locked, so it's kinda a pain to have to wait for them to open it all the time (once got stuck outside in the rain!) The front desk staff was nice, but there were too many other things wrong with this hotel that I won't ever book a room there again.

Pros: La ubicación me resultaba muy cómoda, por su cercanía a la universidad.
La habitación es espaciosa, pero bastante fría, no cuenta con sistema de calefacción. El baño es pequeño, y al prender la ducha se generaba una corriente de aire, por lo que el agua se salpicaba por todo el baño. El agua en muchas oportunidades estaba muy fría, en particular en el horario de las 8 de la mañana, en el que seguramente muchas personas se bañaban.

Pros: Todo
Cons: Que el elevador sea un poco más rapido
Location: Está sobre una avenida grande por lo cual es muy seguro. Cerca del transmilenio y en un buen lugar para moverse por la ciudad.
Todo está en buenas condiciones y el personal es súper amable. Hicieron mi estancia en Bogotá mas amena. Lo recomiendo 100%
