Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Casa Real Bogota
This hotel was a real "find". We had a mini-suite that was very generous in space. Included was a large bathroom that included a jacuzzi as well as a shower. Interior decorating was excellent. The bed mattress and bedding were of excellent quality. It was a good place to relax after daily activities.
We had earlier in our trip stayed at the Hotel Morrison, and we were very pleased with the positive change Casa Real offered. (Surprisingly, the cost per night for Casa Real was less than the Hotel Morrison).
Breakfast was superb and included our favorite tropical fruits (granadilla or passion fruit; and pitaya). Service was excellent and really we had no issues.
The hotel restaurant has a limited menu. To get to restaurants you would have to walk about 3-4 blocks to a park area that is surrounded by restaurants. The hotel itself is located among apartment buildings, so don't expect commercial operations in direct vicinity.
Una bella sorpresa a Bogotà
Devo dire che prima di venire al Casa Real ero un po' ansioso a causa delle recensioni che avevo letto, ma, wow, ho trovato un albergo fantastico: ottima ubicazione, vicino al Parque de la 93, e camere pulite; sono andato a stare in una Junior Suite che aveva una piccola cucina tutta dipinta, un bagno fantastico, un bel letto e internet wireless gratuito; inoltre tutto il personale era premuroso e cordiale. Così senza dubbio consiglierei quest'albergo a tutti...
Sorpresa muy linda en Bogota
Antes de venir al hotel estaba un poco preocupada con las reseñas, pero, ¡sorpresa! Hallé un hotel magnífico, con muy buena ubicación, cerca del parque de la 93 y habitaciones limpias. Estuve en el "junior suite", que tiene una cocina pequeña, estaba con pintura nueva, tenía un baño magnífico, linda cama e Internet inalámbrico gratis. Todo el personal estaba dispuesto a ayudar y era simpático. Así que sin duda recomendaría este hotel a cualquiera.
Très belle surprise à Bogota
Je dois avouer qu'avant de venir à l'hôtel, j'étais un peu inquiète par les commentaires mais ouah, j'ai trouvé l'hôtel formidable, très bien situé, près du Parque de la 93. Les chambres étaient propres. J'ai séjourné dans une suite junior qui possédait une petite cuisine toute repeinte, une super salle de bain, un lit agréable, un accès gratuit à l'internet sans fil et tout le personnel est très serviable et aimable. Donc, sans aucun doute, je conseillerais cet hôtel à tous...

Great little, intimate hotel
We were so pleasantly surprised when our taxi pulled up to this 27 room, architectural gem with retro feel, in the residential district of Bogota. Our room was a large combo-suite with mini-kitchen for coffee-making and drinks in fridge, and snacks provided by mini-bar service. Location was superb and within walking distance to over 20 varied restaurants around a park and close to shops. Staff were so warm and helpful as was the owner's wife in helping to arrange a tour of Bogota. We felt safe in the city and loved its chic and great food. E.J. Philadelphia, PA
Super petit hôtel intime
Nous avons été vraiment agréablement surpris lorsque notre taxi nous a amené devant cette chambre 27, un joyau d'architecture à l'ambiance rétro, dans le quartier résidentiel de Bogota. Notre chambre se présentait sous forme d'une grande suite combinée avec une kitchenette pour faire le café et avoir des boissons dans le réfrigérateur ainsi que les collations fournies par le service du minibar. La situation était superbe et on pouvait aller à pied dans une vingtaine de différents restaurants autour d'un parc et on était près des magasins. Le personnel était chaleureux et serviable tout comme la femme du propriétaire qui proposait d'organiser une visite de Bogota. Nous nous sommes sentis en sécurité dans la ville et nous avons adoré sa cuisine raffinée et délicieuse.

Safe and inviting in Bogota
What a pleasure to stay in a safe neighborhood at a very nice hotel at a reasonable price in Bogota. The Casa Real is one of the few hotels in the heart of Calle 93 neighborhood. This is one of the "hottest" areas of Bogota with restaurants, clubs, and shops bordering a large park. The hotel rooms are large with a bed, sitting area, desk, breakfast table & chairs, and small kitchen/bar area. The bathrooms are also large with a walk-in shower on one side and a jacuzzi tub on the other. It is not glamorous or brand new hotel but it is in a tasteful contemporary style personalized with artistic touches like fanciful paintings on doors and floor boards. The breakfast buffet is fresh and ample. We had easy, free access to computers and internet service. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful. They definitely looked after us with good recommendations for restaurants, local gyms, modes of transportation, and sights to visit. We will return!
Casa Real Hotel
Me alojé en Casa Real Hotel durante 4 noches, en mayo de 2006. El personal era excelente, muy amable y servicial. En principio había reservado la Suite Superior o Ejecutiva, pero cuando me registré no disponían de una por lo que me asignaron una Junior Suite. Como viajaba sólo no me importó quedarme las 4 noches en esta habitación, sin embargo al siguiente día abrieron la Suite superior, que era mucho más grande. Contaba con su propia habitación, baño, zona de cocina, una zona de estar muy bonita con su propia televisión y una zona de trabajo. Era grandísima, aunque su mobiliario estaba un poco desgastado pero el tamaño de la habitación (por su precio) y su maravilloso personal compensaban de sobra por todo esto. Me alojé en el Hotel Sofitel en abril, durante 5 noches y pagué casi el doble de lo que había pagado en el Casa Real por una habitación cuyo tamaño era menos de la mitad. Recomendaría alojarse en este hotel encarecidamente y desde luego que iré al Casa Real la próxima vez. Además está muy cerca (2 manzanas y media) del Parque 93, una zona que me encanta.
Case Real Hotel
I stayed at Case Real for 4 nights in May, 2006. The staff were excellent. Very friendly and helpful. I was initially booked for the Superior or Executive Suite, but it was not available when I checked in so they put me in the Jr. Suite. As I was travelling alone, this would have been fine for me to stay for 4 nights. The next day the Superior Suite opened up. It was much larger. It had its own Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen area, and a nice TV area and work area. It was VERY large. The furniture in the room may be a little tired, but the size of the room (for the price) and the staff more than made up for it. I stayed at the Hotel Sofitel in April for 5 nights and paid almost twice what I paid at Case Real for a room more than half the size. I would HIGHLY recommend staying at Case Real and will stay here next time I visit without hesitation. It is also a very quick walk (2 1/2 blocks) to Parque 93 which is an area that I love.

... idea. 20 minutes into the journey, everyone was standing up signing songs and having a great time. Much more of this rocket fuel flowed between the 12-15 people on the coach, and then we arrived at around 12.15am at this strange looking club. At around that point, the drinks had started to take full effect, as I certainly wasn’t holding back. Much of the remainder of the night is a bit of a blur, of colours and shapes, and before I know it we are all back ...
... It made my sickness worse but it was worth it. One of my friends told me pitaya, a type of dragon fruit, is really good for the stomach when your sick so I ate the whole thing. Nice joke. All the fruits I chose to eat are diuretics. And when I asked her why she told me that she just laughed. Not cool. She then told me, "well it's good for clearing out the stomach." Yeah, thanks. I took some Imodium and ate some saltines, and by ...
