In an upscale enclave in northern Bogota, Lancaster House is an all-suite escape from the city’s hustle and bustle, with two restaurants, a bar and a rooftop gym and sauna. Popular with both business and leisure travelers, it’s within easy reach of the city’s hip Zona Rosa and Parque 93 neighborhoods but just 25 minutes from the international airport. Guests arrive at a light-filled lobby that’s done up in a formal style with multicolored marble, warm wood paneling and leather and wood furnishings. Upstairs, the suites are simply styled in a palette of orange, chocolate and bright whites; they have Queen or Twin beds and, in some rooms, private terraces. The spacious bathrooms are outfitted with single vanities, tub-shower combos and house brand amenities. On the dining front, Gatsby restaurant dishes up Colombian classics and international favorites all day and hosts weekend brunches from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., while the more casual Bistro 106 (open for lunch and dinner) is the spot for cake and strong Colombian coffee. A hearty breakfast buffet is served daily, and room service is available around the clock. Any overindulgence can be remedied in the recently renovated rooftop gym, or paired with a sauna session or, for an extra fee, an in-room spa treatment.
In the Area
Head 10 minutes south to take advantage of hip Zona Rosa’s many attractions. Browse the racks at local designer favorites such as Lina Cantillo, Pamela Duque and Julieta Suarez, or hit the shops at Andino Shopping Plaza and the top-of-the-line El Retiro Shopping Center, home to Andres Jaramillo’s extraordinary food court. His other restaurant, Andres D.C., opened in 2009 and is a pricey but totally unique experience in grilled meat dining (with good wines and appetizers), set in a four-tier industrial warehouse staffed by dancing waiters. A more tranquil choice might be Club Colombia, which serves such regional classics as corn empanadas and ajiaco soup. Daytrips include the historic old city, La Candelaria; the Gold Museum, with its treasure trove of 34,000 pieces of gold and 20,000 other ancient artifacts; and the Salt Cathedral at Zipaquira, built in the tunnels of a salt mine some 600 feet underground. A surefire way to meet the Bogotanos is to rent a bike on a Sunday, when 70 miles of street are closed to car traffic from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
How to Get There
Nice hotel. Good daily breakfast. Good location if you want to stay outside of the main areas of Bogotá. About 30 minutes from downtown by taxi or transmilenio. Can walk to lots of Restaurants nearby.
I loved the service here! Everyone was so nice! The Uber rides were pretty inexpensive as you aren't walking distance to a lot of activity, but there are restaurants and convenient stores you can walk to. WIFI worked, wasn't impressed with the room as we got the junior suite and it was very outdated. They were booked so couldn't upgrade us but at least now I know! The staff made the stay worth it in my opinion! One spoke English which was nice! I was very disappointed as I thought this would be a true 4 star hotel, but i would give it a solid 3 stars.
I had a great stay thanks to the big apartment, the terrase, the mini kitchen. And even if it is not in the center of Bogota, it is situated in a safe part of the city, where one can take a walk in the evening, feeling safe. I loved Bogota! That is mostly due to Sandra, the taxi driver from the hotel, who recommanded us what to visit, where to go and took us everywhere. I have never felt so taken care of like in Bogota!
as I mention that hotel has good price,i had oversized room,but hotel is located on one of the busyiest highways going out of Bogota and entering Bogota...so its constant traffic,with noise and traffic jam...so if you have to go somewhere youll need time...so I prefer in future more hotel closer to zona rosa and pay a bit more for room as to stay in Lancaster House hotel.
the room was clean and the WiFi worked great and the location was awesome.
the service was great and attentive. the hospitality was also great of each of the staff and very friendly. Will surely recommend
