Location is amazing - very safe area and across the road from a great shopping centre. There's a large precinct of amazing bars and restaurants which are a 10-minute taxi/Uber trip away. I'd recommend this hotel on the location alone.
Staff were very helpful! I do not speak Spanish but the staff worked hard to communicate with me and ensure I had a pleasant experience. Particularly when explaining the breakfast content.
The hotel itself is a little tired. I imagine is was a jewel in the 80's, but now there are aging signs such as the floor laminate lifting.
As a small aside, I discovered that foreigners don't need to pay a tax (~20%) in Colombia for hotels. However if you have a local "visitor", you will be forced to pay this tax, even if your visitor doesn't stay the night. I assume it's a legal thing.
