A Place to Sleep
A bright blue neon light was shining through the window lighting up the entire room. The room was drafty and not the warmest place to be. No hot water.
The bed was warm and the staff was available when we needed them. Very affordable.

The location is not the best one unless you want to walk to the bus terminal, which is like 30 minutes by foot. Not many things to do around, getting there is a little confusing and I reach the hotel beforehand cause the phone on Booking is not correct.
The price is good for what you get and the breakfast was pretty good and served on time.

If you are looking for shopping and restaurants, there isn't much nearby.
The lady who runs the place is very friendly and helpful. And her cat too. The room was a good size and the wifi worked well. Peaceful area.

bathroom is small with transparent doors, you have to wait a bit for hot water to start to flow
Near Transmilenio station, not far from airport/bus terminal, friendly and helpful owner

Casa Posada Amelia, Bogota: Severe contrast with 3 other excellent hotels
Severe contrast with 3 excellent establishments. A total of 4 Colombia bookings, 3 of which were done through "Booking.com". Some details: Room #1 for my wife and I: No Wifi [for Airline alerts], fitting or sufficient outlets, window, closet or any space to speak of. One broken ceiling-embedded light bulb without accepting to repair, leaving entire room on 1 remote dim bulb. Room #2 [after they realized inadequacy of room #1]: Single small bed with non-viewable TV location. Again, near zero wifi. No closet, no window. Finally, settling for room #3 [finally Wifi, limited to a single bar]: 3 Very narrow single beds [for kids]. No window. Hangers totally blocked by non-movable desk. Slight attempt to ask us for more money than confirmed in the reservation. Breakfast: Barely toasted, blandest imginable bread and cheese [even though we don't eat cheese] after we insisted that we're tired of fried eggs + a cup of coffee. Grudgingly, they accepted to give us another cup. NOTHING ELSE - No fruits, juice, cereals, milk or other. The most expensive of our 4 Bogota bookings, three of which were on Booking.com Full payment must be done upon arriving. Most frustrating policy of locking the place down for coming in OR GOING OUT. Therefore, we give this establishment a very unfavorable rating.
If the following qualifies for "Liking": Considering the inaccuracy* [see below] and obscurity [literal zero bldg or street lighting AND metaphorically in a totally unidentifiable house with no signage whatsoever - at least that we could ever see or find], they sent somebody on foot to walk us a bunch of blocks to the facility - that is only after 45 minutes of unbearably heavy and nonstop rain [despite umbrellas and ponchos] which rendered EVERYTHING we had - duffel bag & all totally unusable 'til the next day and after we scrambled to spread everything out [in very inadequate space] to dry. * Inaccuracy: Location is listed in "Fontibon, Bogota". In fact, it is not at all in Fontibon but in "Modelia, Bogota". They were even surprised when we showed them the printout. This confusion had local people's generous help very difficult and had us going in circles under the above-mentioned unbearably and nonstop heavy rain.

Very good service and very friendly staff. We forgot our jacket and the owners did everything in their abilities to help us recuperate it. It was close to the airport and there are very nice restaurants at walking distance

It is ok if you just stay for one single night.
Too much noise.
