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
It is not a 4 star hotel under any standard. Staff reviewed our police records. I left early and the called at 5:00 a.m. to see ir my wife was in the room. It is more a motel than a hotel.
Not a nice place in any manner. We were highly desappointed with travel sites and their misleading información
The service of the entire staff during our stay was impeccable!Our master suite was clean & assistance received during the entire was superb! Recommended for larger family visiting Bogota with excellent price! Will definitely recommend to family and friends and will return back!
Great stay great room, great breakfast. Kind professional staff. Everything was perfect . The hotel dispose fitness and sauna . Restaurant is very good quality. Room is a suite with kitchen and terrace
We stayed at the Lancaster House Suites for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and very helpful, especially for 2 people who do not speak Spanish! We walked to a fabulous area for dinner and found everything you would need close by. Unfortunately it is a bit far from the center of the city, so getting anywhere was an experience with Bogota traffic. The room was clean and spacious. Would recommend
So, for the money... its not really worth it. I flew into bogota late and figured id grab a cheaper hotel for the few hrs i was going to be there until I ventured out after a cpl hrs rest. I booked this hotel because it was 4 star and had 24 hr room service figuring id be hungry after my flights. We got to the hotel after booking a room with a terrace for an extra cost through Expedia. The front desk guy didn't speak english, whatever he was the over night guy, so the communication was spotty at best. We get to the room and no terrace. I asked about the terrace and was told sorry not available and speak to the next rep in the morning. Ok whatever im tired and hungry, lets get some room service right!?! Ordered some food only to be called back by the non English speaking rep and i think he said sorry what i ordered off the menu wasnt available. I said ok whatever im hungry surprise me with something. Oh they surprised me with a small bar sized pizza for a large sum of pesos. We ate a few bites and it was ok but loaded with cheese to the point you had to take it off otherwise your stomach would be all jacked up. Whatever lets just go to sleep right!?! Well, no a/c just an imitation stand alone unit that maybe pushed the stuffy hot air around the room. After sweating balls for a couple hrs we decided to check out as early as possible. When we mentioned the terrace and room service charges we were met with what seemed to be a sincere apology and a mini bottle of Malbec wine for our over priced under slept troubles.. i wouldn't recommend this place. Sorry
