Originally built in 1923, as a residence for architect Carlos Arturo Tapias. Turned into a hotel in 1928. Failed expansion plans in the 1950s. Closed in the early 1990s, due to the pollution from the Bogota River, which it overlooks.
Abandoned as of 1990, when the waterfall became too polluted; waterfall of sewage.
As noted on one travel site:
The Bogota River is the second most polluted waterway on the planet and the river’s smell does precede it. Bring some Vick’s Vapor Rub to put under your nose.

How it was then:
With no searchable documents available for Carlos Arturo Tapias. Ghost. Like the building, once his home.
