What Past Guests Are Saying
Great apartment . . . but honking horns all day & night
I stayed a Saturday through Tuesday at this very nice studio apartment. I have absolutely no complaints about the apartment itself. It is very nice; however, all the cars that pass by honk their horn. All day and all night. My spouse and I were unable to sleep. (there is an intersection just outside, and motorists passing by honk their horn to try to signal potential oncoming traffic). If you sleep like a log--this place is great. If you're a light sleeper like me, beware.
Great bed, well equipped Kitchen, great modern bathroom, great hi speed internet. Other than the horns, no complaints. I must add, very well managed.
These loft rooms were great. We stayed for 8 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The outside of the building is rather bleak, but inside is great- fresh and well set out.
They are close to Plaza de Bolivar, and lots of other interesting places,( art galleries, emerald shops, markets etc) are nearby. We felt very safe walking about during the day, but avoided going too far on foot at night.
Would recomend these lofts to anyone who wishes to stay in this area of Bogata.
Great Loft in Candelaria
This was a great choice in Candelaria, the old colonial part of Bogota. For $70 a night, I was in a lovely one-bedroom apartment within walking distance of everything. Heidi was very helpful and friendly, and even stayed at the apartment until 11:30 at night to greet me when my flight got in late. She was very flexible with when I paid and was able to give me a late check-out the day I left, which was greatly appreciated.
The apartment and the building is a little bit hipster--thing stylish stairs with no railings--and I would definitely recommend it for a solo traveler or coupe...not sure about it as a family apartment. But I appreciated everything being fully-furnished with modern appliances and design. My only complaint was lack of insulation, but I think that's the building structure and can't be controlled by the apartment manager.
Overall, a great place to stay in the center of Candelaria and a chance to live like a local. You can't beat that!
Heidi met us when we arrived from Lima although it was late. She gave us the keys, showed us the basics and met us in the morning to finalize things and give us more information. The loft is ultramodern, brand new, spotless, and a great alternative to a hotel. It is located within one block of the Botero Museum, Luis angel Rangel library & museum, 1 1/2 blocks from Gabriel Garcia Marquez Center and within a short walk to the Museo del Oro, Plaza Bolivar, and many other cultural activities.
We did suggest that perhaps a basic guide to using the appliances and fireplace would be essential.
Best value in candelaria
Three of slept comfortably (2 in the queen bed, one on sofa bed) and even did a load of laundry. It is noisy-pretty much everyplace in Colombia is-but elegant and great bathrooms. Cannot beat the location. Heidi is the best! Not only did she hook up a 6am cab for our friend, she let us do a late checkout when I got food poisoning (totally my fault, ps avoid chorizeria in the macarena).
Casa sua a Bogota
I was in one of these apartments during the month of July 2010. Having already been to Colombia before, knew the neighborhood of La Candelaria (the old part of town) and I have actively sought a home where you can spend a week with a friend. The apartments are all recently redone (and also beautiful and modern), and it is as if one were at home - as a result are truly independent. In any case, Bogota is never difficult to find a place to eat etc if one does not feel like cooking ... Alvaro, who owns the house is very nice and helped us with any questions we had. We will come back very happy - perhaps not the best solution 'economic one can find them', but the apartments are nice, very central, and not the usual hotel!
We had a wonderful stay in the apartment. It was beautiful, modern, and very clean, and we had everything we needed. the Calendaria quartier was our favourite part of the city, so we were happy to be able to stay close by.
