Oasis in the busy city

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of getting to know the owner, Carolina, and the pleasure of staying in her beautiful penthouse apartment for the duration of about 3.5 months. Not only was the apartment absolutely breathtaking, but Carolina was so understanding, hospitable, and kind. I contacted her with the request of needing a home as I finished out my contract as I was working in Bogota. I had moved 5 times in about 6 months while I was working in Bogota, and I was just ready for a place to call "home" as I finished my time in Colombia. Carolina welcomed me with open arms into her apartment. I have never felt more at home and more comfortable in my whole life. It was definitely very difficult to leave that beautiful home. The pictures do not do this apartment justice! It was very spacious, comfortable, and great for having a few people over for a nice dinner or a few drinks. I absolutely fell in love with the wrap around terrace with mountain views on one side and city views on the other. I know for a sure thing that whenever I travel back to Bogota, I will certainly be contacting Carolina again with the hope of her apartment being available for rent. I worked at a high stress school, and Bogota is a very busy, loud, and stressful city at times, but every time I walked into my apartment I felt as if I was in an oasis that was far away from the busy city life. Even the facilities within the apartment complex are incredible. A cute coffee shop, fitness center, and full five star restaurant, are just the beginning of what this apartment has to offer. Also, Carolina's cousin lives and works in Bogota. There was one instance where I was locked out of the apartment and she ran right over to make sure I was able to get in safe and sounds. If I ever had questions or needed help, both Carolina and her cousin were just a phone call away from solving the problem immediately. While I was living in the apartment I had some family members from the states come visit me in Bogota, needless to say I was extremely proud and excited to show them where I had the blessing to live! Seriously, If you are looking for a place to stay in Bogota, no matter what the reason of travel may be, contact Carolina. She will make you feel right at home. You may never want to leave!!

Thank you so much Carolina!

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Carolina's apartment for 5 days. We were picked up at the airport by a driver that Carolina knows, which was wonderful as our Spanish is very limited. The apartment was very clean and beautifully furnished and the wrap around balcony was a bonus. It is located within the grounds of a larger hotel which has excellent security. Across the street there is a large shopping centre -Unicentro which has a grocery store -Exito in it. Carolina's sister Lucero met us at the apartment and showed around. We would highly recommend this apartment to couples or families with children. We ate at Archie's, a pizzeria across the street , the thin crust Rustica pizza and Carmenere wine were delicious. We would stay here again.

My Bogota Home

  • 5 of 5

This place is a very happy place and the two women who run it are absolutely lovely. I locked myself out and the owner, who was in the United States contacted me immediately and I was back in the house a half hour later. The pictures are accurate but don't do the place justice, there are so many windows and a wraparound patio with gorgeous mountain views. I stayed in the home for about two months while adopting and others who stay in other units are envious of this one because of the layout and lofted space. The washing machine and dryer are a huge bonus and have made my life a lot easier. The location is ideal because there are several grocery stores and a mall basically across the street. There are lots of parks and everything is in walking distance. The hotel itself is very well maintained and there are many other adoptive families here, which is great because you have that in common.

I would recommend this place as it is a gem in a wonderful and safe area.

Excellent accomodation for families adopting in Bogota.

  • 5 of 5

I would like to share the wonderful experience that we had at this apartment recently during our 3 month stay in Bogota whilst processing the adoption of our son. From the minute I began to make enquiries I knew we were onto a good thing. Carolina the owner couldn't have been more professional and helpful in ensuring we had everything we needed. She was more than happy to answer our questions. Once our decision was made all went smoothly in terms of secure payment of deposit and finally arrival arrangements. We were warmly greeted in Bogota and given lots of information about the area and the apartment. Lucero who greeted us was alwYs only a phone call away. What was even more impressive was that Both Carolina and Lucero called us on a number of occasions to see how we were settling in and whether we had any concerns. This was very reassuring but never intrusive.Being so far from home we wanted it to be as close to home as possible. The apartment was full of light but private at the same time. All rooms were of a decent size and Carolina organised a cot for the arrival of our new son. Beds comfortable. Hot water always available and apartment on the whole immaculately clean. We also never had a problem with the wi-Fi.

Our housekeeper Stella (who we requested at a very affordable additional cost), was wonderful and took care of the cooking and cleaning so we could have quality family time. She was very trustworthy as well.

Being within the same grounds as the Hotel Fontana meant we felt very secure at all times. We also had lots of green gardens and a lovely little plaza with a chapel to walk through without having to leave the grounds. The playground downstairs was great and we used it every day. It was also a great place to meet other adopting families. Across the road was Unicentro, one of the biggest shopping malls in Bogota. Here you could find all kinds of shops as well as a bowling alley, cinemas and grocery store. 2 blocks down was "el Parque country " a large park for the kids with jogging/ walking track.

All in all we can only speak highly of this apartment and it's owner. 3 months were made all the easier by having somewhere so homely to stay. Thank you for always accommodating us Carolina and for going out of your way to ensure we had a wonderful stay. We will definitely use this apartment again if in Bogota. Highly recommended for families and a great place if your adopting!

Excellent stay for business travelers

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment when I went to Bogota for business. I give this place 5 stars all around. The apartment itself was fantastic - comfortable bed, very clean, very nicely decorated, quiet, hot water, fast Wi-Fi, good working area, nice TV, very safe. The location is great - diagonal from Unicentro (one of the best shopping centers in Bogota), very easy to get taxis, close to most of my clients (O&G operators), close to many restaurants. A big bonus is that one has access to the ammenities of La Fontana hotel - the apartment is basically inside the hotel, so you have access to the hotel's gym and restaurants. I definitely recommend this apartment to any business traveler and tourist.

Beautiful apartment in Bogota

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at this apartment in Bogota. This apartment had everything a traveler would need. Fully equipped kitchen, nice amenities in the bedrooms, office area with desk, WiFi, washer & dryer, iron, flat screen tv's with cable, close to nice shopping/dining areas.....everything. Excellent for a long-term stay, as well as short. Nice area of Bogota too. Security at the apartment was best I had seen anywhere in my travels throughout Colombia.

Owner's Response: Hello Thomas, Thank You for your honest and positive review. I am glad you were able to find everything comfortable and safe in the apartment because as the owner that is the most important thing. Having near by shops and nice restaurants is always good, but the security as you said at the apartment is a bonus. Hopefully we will see you again. As long as the aparment is available, its your home. Thanks. Sincerely, Carolina Leon.
