Avoid this hotel.
Dodgy area. Homeless people sleeping rough. Daytime OK. Close to old town/Monserrate. Rude, surly, unwelcoming, off-putting night staff. Peremptory demands for passports - no smile (unusual in Colombia) . If I hadn't paid before I would have gone elsewhere. Day staff next day helpful and friendly, however. Breakfast OK - chose coffee over juice, scrambled eggs over sweet cereal. Coffees good (had three). Bread/butter/jam. Room safe could not be accessed so left passports, extra money with the day staff to put in their safe. Came back 8.30 pm. Same rude lady on duty. Passports etc could not be found. Told to wait until day staff arrived at 07.00 - but we were leaving at 05.45. Advised to ring police by a Colombian guest. So rang police - VERY impressive; arrived 15 minutes later and read the riot act to the night staff. We were assured that day staff lady would come at 05.30 to open office (NB no actual safe!), Policeman gave us his card and number to ring if still problems the next day. Came down at 05.30 - to find that miraculously the packet with our documents etc had been found during the night. Strange! Sad to leave Bogota and Colombia with this bad impression.

More like 2 star, not 3
The area seems dangerous. Shower doesn't have a shower head (looks more like a tap). However the staff are helpful. More like a 2 star hotel

Very Good8.0
Great Location & Great Price
This is definitely a budget hotel - older and quaint. Limited amenities in the room, but the room was cozy and the beds very comfortable. The hotel is only one block away from one of the main streets in the central part of the city, and only a five minute walk to Plaza de Bolivar. If you have no Spanish language skills, you will have trouble communicating with the hotel staff - very limited English among the entire staff. Free breakfast with room was a choice of either eggs, or fruit or cereal. If you get coffee with milk only one cup of coffee is free, however, if you get black coffee you get free refills - strange thing.
