This hotel is well located in the Candelaria district and thus it is within easy walking distance to many attractions. We had a colonial room with a small balcony. The room was large, the beds comfortable, the bathroom quite modern. Housekeeping was a bit hit and miss...some days the towels left on the floor were just hung back up and...

Our very early flight from the UK landed even earlier than expected, unfortunately our transfer (organised by the hotel) arrived late, almost 3/4hour late.

The location is great! Many historic places to visit in one or two block distance: museums (Botero, Museo del Oro, etc), houses where the Independence movement began, etc. The staff was very polite and professional. The breakfast was good too,

We stayed at Hotel de la Opera for 4 nights in March. We arrived in Bogota late at night, so we arranged an airport pickup with the hotel. The driver met us promptly right outside the immigration/baggage area. The drive to the hotel took about 20 minutes. Check-in was fast with a friendly receptionist. Our room was 714 on the...

Hotel de la Opera is in a great location in the middle of the old town of Candelara in Bogota. The room on the seventh floor was very nice with a great view.

Dear Hedo-goer Thank you very much for the time you spent making this review, I am sure it will help a lot to all our incoming guests.

This small hotel is exceptionally located in la Candelaria, the historic and elegant district of Bogota.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel de la Opera is located in La Candelaria, next to the Cristobal Colon Theater, in front of "Palacio San Carlos", currently headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, one block from Bolivar Square and a fifteen minutes walk to the funicular for Monserrate hill. Thanks to its strategic location, our guests can easily visit the most characteristic places of the city, for example the Gold Museum, Botero Museum, Primary Cathedral, etc. Also, many important government buildings are nearby. Walking its roads you will be part of its stories, legends and myths which are preserved in each of its houses. Questions like, why do the houses have doors of two meters? Where did Manuelita Saenz live her idyll with Simon Bolivar? Which is the window through which Simon Bolivar escaped? These are just some examples of the cultural treasures that you will find in La Candelaria. ... more   less
