It is one of the bigger hotels in this area and not particularly charming. The rooms are a good size though and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Some of them speak English quite well and are more than willing to give you recommendations for restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. in the neighborhood. That neighborhood is very lively with restaurants,...

My wife and I had a private room in a hostel across the road but wanted something bigger and better. For about $10US more per night we picked Acqua Hotel. The location at the edge of Zona Rosa is excellent. It's on a vibrant street but most of the noise and action is a few streets away so the rooms...

My two night stay was overall very nice. After spending the few prior nights in another city in a cheap place, I was ready for somewhere more comfortable. The hotel is in the middle of a great neighborhood, safe, with lots of trendy restaurants and stores. What I loved: The location of course. The rooms are very clean, and while...

A very clean and safe Hotel. Staff was super friendly and Bell Man were superb. We were scheduled to stay one night but after getting such great english speaking service, we ended up staying 4 nights. Highly recommended. Thank you Enrique and Alejandro!

Fantastic location. Super friendly staff. Only few speak English. Great room not noisy at all. Private room in a noisy hostel down the road is about $4aud cheaper Only downfall was when they wouldn't let my friends now Colombian wife into the room for 30 mins to have a shower and get changed because they thought she was a prostitute....

Right in the middle of a great zone, we didn't notice any out of the ordinary noise! The people at front desk are extremely attentive and very friendly. Rooms are great, roomy, with a fridge and a/c. I really felt that nothing here was a problem for the staff! Gracias chicos!!!

Nice, modern mid range hotel in an attractive area. As usually, try and get a room which is not facing the street. We had a room on the 3rd floor going to the back of the hotel. No street noise issue, but some noise from the breakfast area below (shouldn't be an issue if you have a room on a...

The hotel doesn't have great amenities or extras, like a pool or gym..... But, the staff are friendly and the location is pretty good - in the middle of the Zona Rosa. The rooms are spacious but not massive. They are clean, comfortable, have a view, mini fridge, AC and safety deposit box. TV is all Spanish. Bad is a...

The Acqua Express Hotel is a nice spot that is a very good value. The rooms are nice and clean. The wifi works well, the shower has good pressure, and the location is as good as it gets. The cleaning crew takes care of the room daily and sometimes organizes your stuff. The staff in the lobby are all helpful,...

We had room 606 and it was quite nice except for two minor annoyances really. One was that the towels were really scratchy to the skin after a shower, and in this particular shower there is a large column that takes up a good section of where you move about. I'm just a bit picky I guess. Other than that,...
