* Our friend Marjorie Dias traveled to Colombia to enjoy the holidays. On her way back, she takes the opportunity to share with us a hotel tip in Bogotagreat for those who want to visit the Colombian capital.
As soon as I arrived in Colombia I came across a very old architecture and I thought the hotel would also be like this, but I was surprised when I entered the B3 Virrey. The establishment, located in pink zone, an area of bars and clubs, it is very modern and beautiful and the employees make an effort to understand our portunhol. From Monday to Friday, many executives stay there, when the hotel is much more crowded.
The room is very comfortable, nice and clean. As I stayed on two different dates, I stayed in two different apartments, one with a double bed and the other with single beds. On one of the days, I had problems with the toilet and the bathroom lights, which were fixed as soon as I left for the tour.
Breakfast is super yummy with lots of options. light, eggs, juices and fruits. Be sure to eat the traditional arepas, delicious corn-based pasta that taste a little like popcorn. Corn and cassava are very common in Colombian cuisine.
Every night, a DJ animates the lounge of the hotel. The music packs drinks and readings from guests and customers who come only to the bar. And don’t worry, the noise doesn’t reach the rooms. The hotel offers coffee, flavored water and, from time to time, sandwiches free of charge throughout the day.
For those who want to tour a lot Candelariaat the Historic center, the only negative point is that the hotel is a bit far from this area. to get to Cerro Monserratefor example, you can take a taxi or transmilenium, bus line in the region. But avoid peak hours, as it is crowded and people really push.
Other than that, great hotel and good location. The surroundings are safe and well policed and currency exchange bureaus are close by. And don’t forget to bring plug adapters, as we forgot ours and the place didn’t have them available.
