Don't stay here. I chose this hotel because it was close to where a conference I was attending was being held. I paid for 4 nights (through Orbitz) but only stayed one. I hated it that much. The area surrounding the Tequendama was bad. I didn't feel safe walking the 8-10 minutes to the conference hotel (especially with a laptop). And I didn't feel safe leaving things in the room because of the surrounding area (although, yes, there was a safe in the room). The room had A/C and a TV, but no desk, which I needed to work on my conference paper. I checked in and was shown my room, and within 5 minutes a mosquito landed on my bed and just stayed there-- atypical behavior for a mosquito-- so I killed it and an exorbitant amount of blood stained the sheet from the dead mosquito-- not a good start. The bathroom screen had huge holes in it and the bathroom door had a huge gap between it and the floor, so it didn't really help to close the door. I'm not up for sleeping somewhere with mosquitoes in the room--especially when paying this much. In addition to a broken screen, the shades in the second bedroom were broken. I put pillows against the window for privacy, but the pillows did not fully cover the area. I just wasn't happy here. The service in the restaurant is bad, as other reviews suggest. The food was good. It's not a horrible place to stay, but it's hostel-worthy, not hotel worthy and it's not worthy of the price. Find a cheaper hostel or an actual hotel.

Hotel stay
Wonderful hotel, very attentive service, the best sunset, BUT bad neighborhood. I was attacked by “security dogs” from nearby small businesses at night twice. Very aggressive animals. The beach door was locked at 8pm, so if you planning to walk on the beach after dark-good luck. Scary experience.
