My wife and I enjoyed our stay at William's place. The view is amazing, it was tastefully decorated and clean, and the location in Candelaria is perfect. William was very helpful and easy to communicate with. He sent some great recommendations for the city that he has written up. This was helpful, especially for helping us discover our favorite part: Usaquen. It's north of Parque 93, but it's well worth the trip. This apartment is in walking distance to the cable car that goes up to Monserrate. The only downside was the bathroom. The water pressure in the shower isn't great, there isn't much shelf space, and it could get crowded since there's only one bathroom. But overall, it's definitely a great place to stay and well worth the money.
This is a very easy going option right where you want to be in central bogota (la candelaria ) and is great value. You are welcomed to use the apartment as your own with a well prepared kitchen for you to access breakfast and juices. The room is excellent with views of the city and access to the property is smooth and unproblematic. For a short stay this place has the Monseraat, old town, graffiti tour and Juan valdez coffee shop and bogota beer company on its doorstep.
La ubicación es muy céntrica, a solo unos pasos del cerro de Montserrate, a cuadras del centro y lugares interesantes. No tuvimos el gusto de conocer a William y Diego pues según comentaron, andaban de viaje. Fueron buenos orientándonos cómo llegar desde el aeropuerto, y William siempre estuvo pendiente por mensaje, aunque por otro lado Diego nunca respondió. Había otros huéspedes en el departamento cuando llegamos, muy amables todos por cierto. Todo estuvo bien en el departamento, salvo que el internet no funcionaba esos días y eso causó un poco de inconvenientes pues teníamos que salir a buscar donde conectarnos, aunque nos comentaron que fue falla técnica del proveedor, supongo que estaba fuera de su alcance solucionarlo. La cama era cómoda, el departamento es lindo y tiene una vista buenísima.
Nos hospedamos apenas 2 noches en casa de William y Diego y la pasamos muy bien! El apartamento es muy cómodo, limpio y ordenado. Su mejor encanto es la ubicación, paseamos por las principales atracciones de Bogotá sin necesidad de utilizar transporte. No tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer a William sin embargo, siempre nos estuvo escribiendo y dando consejos tanto del uso del apartamento como del restaurantes y lugares para visitar. En resumen, 100% recomendado para visitar Bogotá!
Diego is the best. Very helpful and respectful. Great energy. Always available with information either in person or by texting.
The secure apartment is located in Candelaria, a GREAT neighborhood in Bogota. Within easy walking distance of excellent museums and restaurants.
