"The only thing bad I can say about this place is that the rooms don't have windows which makes it a little depressing. Everything else is great including the honest-to-god hot water, not easy to find in Bogota."

25 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Like other comments, the location is fantastic - just of the main street no 7 so easy walk to the gold museum, the plaza, etc. Everything you need (supermarkets, cafes, banks, internet) are just around the corner. Very safe area though LOTS of police around ' but still don´t let your guard down. This is a normal hotel so you are not going to meet people, other than the friendly staff, but the price was cheaper than private room hostels!!

Disliked: I had money stolen from my room - use the safe as I didnt!! Laundry (maybe 2kgs) was nearly the cost of one night!! I think they had it drycleaned...maybe hunt around if this is an expense you can´t afford. For the second time in recent weeks, this place did not have my booking so I lost the 10% deposit I paid!!!!!!!! Maybe book direct with the hotel!!
