"very nice but a little out of the way."

The hotel is run by an exceptionally helpful and kind staff. The rooms are well maintained and very clean but the bed was just a bit firm for my taste...Hotel location is very secure and nice but it is about a 5-10 minute cab ride to parque lleras or poblado and about 15-20 to the center, which means a lot of cabs (luckily they are very economical). Had a great stay here though and the night doorman is especially nice and helpful, great guy to chat with.
"Safe area; Well -designed and safe"

The location in Pablado was a good choice, with many restaurants nearby. The breakfast was good and the staff very pleasant and helpful in calling a taxi when needed. The hotel has 14 rooms and is well-designed, with all the appropriate safety features, including a locked front door and 24 hour staff. The metro station was down the hill, about a 30 minute walk. After staying at Hotel Casa Deco in Bogota, however, we were a little disappointed that there was a hefty telephone charge, even for local calls, and that the staff did not appear to be well-informed on accessing local activities (e.g. Paragliding and various tourist opportunities). It would have been helpful if they had standard connections with local providers, and/or literature available on activity options, such as the microbrewery tour, the Escobar tour, various excursion possibilities, etc.) or would make some calls on behalf of guests. We had done extensive research, so were able to overcome this obstacle. But It would be especially important for persons who spoke no Spanish. (Staff could not communicate in English). In all, however, it was an excellent boutique hotel and we would recommend it. We stayed, a party of four, in November 2012.
"A hidden gem in a great neighborhood"

Luke, the owner, speaks fluent English and was always helpful. The lobby and common areas were lovely. I much preferred this location to Poblato, which I went to check out because I read so much about it. From the description I'd expected a kitchen in my room. Instead it was an immaculate common kitchen. Having a window that looks outside is important to me, but most rooms look into the interior areas. I did get a junior suite that looked onto the street and the biggest problem was street noise. We had to either keep the windows closed while we slept, or wear ear plugs. We had wifi in the room and it was mostly reliable.
