The photos on the site looked very inviting. So I booked the deluxe single room for several nights. It also advertised "we speak your language" But no one spoke English there. Even the shuttle service wasn't able to find the hotel since the signage blends into the building. You have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the "so called" lobby. I assume the place was just being painted since it smelled like fresh paint. The receptionist was not friendly and got annoyed because I couldn't speak Spanish. I checked in and the room was old and far from inviting. The blinds for the upper windows were broken. If this was the "deluxe" room, I didn't want to see the regular room.
I would not rate his a hotel but a hostel..... The toilet seat was barely attached to the rest of the toilet and the internet in the room was very poor.
I wanted to share my concerns with the receptionist but she only spoke Spanish.
I ended up packing up my stuff and looked for another hotel that was a few $$ more but was beautiful, well run and the staff was very attentive and spoke English.
Breton Hill needs to update their pics and should share that no one speaks English there.
I had no intention of staying at Hotel Breton Hill and only did so because of a horrible experience I had with an AirBnB listing forcing me to leave the apartment 30 minutes after arriving and being lost in Bogota without a place to stay. I found Breton Hill on booking.com and it was affordable and had good reviews. I took a taxi to the address provided and there was no sign out front, which was strange.
I knocked on the front door and a security guard asked me what I wanted. I asked if there was a hotel here and she said yes, on the 2nd floor. So, she asked my name, called up to the 2nd floor to confirm I had a reservation, then let me in. The "hotel" is actually an entire floor (the 2nd loor) of a building that seems to have both offices and residences.
I was a bit stressed after my horrible AirBnB experience and the young man working the night shift (it turns out he was the owner's son) was extremely accommodating and helpful, and spoke perfect English. He upgraded me to a larger room which was clean and had a fan to allow for circulation. It's on a main avenue but the room was very quiet and I got a good night's sleep.
They serve a nice little breakfast in the morning, with some juice, coffee and eggs (the 2nd day it was a waffle). The owner was on duty the day I checked out (today) and was extremely kind as well. She told me she talked to her son and that I needed an apartment for the month since I had left the AirBnB rental after 30 minutes, and offered to work out a special deal where I could stay with them for the month. It's a shame that I had already found another place since I definitely would have taken them up on the offer.
So, while this really isn't a hotel in the true sense (it's more like a B&B), it's definitely a place you will feel welcome and it's in a great neighborhood. It's just a few blocks walk from some great shopping malls and it's in a very safe and secure zone.
It's a small, family-run hotel. It's basically a big apartment adapted to a small hotel. Room and bathroom are quite spacious, but you can hear the traffic noise in the morning. The owners are very nice and helpful people, as it's usually the case with Colombians. Breakfast is a real shame. It would be better not to offer any at all. Location close to embassies explains why prices are high, but still lower than most of the hotels in the area. All in all, I would likely consider other options.
Very small hotel of 8 or 9 rooms located only in the second floor of the building.
The rest of the floors are private apartments.
Great Location over the Carrera 11 and 1 block from the 93 park, area with lots of upscale and fancy restaurants and trendy bars. Few blocks is located the Andino Shopping, Retiro Shopping and Atlantis Shopping.
The Hotel staff is super friendly and they are always willing to help you.
The room that we stayed was the Superior room and was very big and comftable.
The breakfast is basic but worked okay.
I would stay again.
I stayed here a couple of nights. It is very close to Parque 93, you can walk to Jaramillos or Cafe Renault. It is easy to catch a Taxi to downtown or to the North. Not too far from Andino Mall. (Which I like) and all the shops nearby. Based on the fact that my room didnt have a window, I would probably stay somewhere else.
