Whether you’re looking for five-star luxury hotels or a more affordable accommodation option, we have compiled a varied list of the top hotels in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá.

1. Casa Legado

Luxury, Hotel, Boutique Hotel

This stylish mid-century home-from-home in the heart of Bogotá’s most cultured district, Quinta Camacho, offers a unique chance to plug into a Colombian family with all the right connections. Owner, chef and interior designer, Helena Davila, turned her family home and the house next door into the capital’s most beautiful boutique hotel. She’s still on site most days to ensure afternoon tea is served on time, to kick off the salsa classes and check in on the homemade granola, coconut yoghurt and all-you-can-eat brownies. In the heart of the city’s gallery and gourmet districts, this designer gem is perfect for arty gourmands that want to avoid the traffic and stay local.

2. Bioxury Hotel

Eco Hotel, Independent Hotel

The silver-plated mesh wrapped around the reception, created by Bogotá’s Hechizoo textiles, gives this well-polished compound a regal sheen. It’s all about the views here: most rooms take in El Retiro’s Jenga-like buildings and tropical hillsides – reflected within the hotel by abundant greenery. Foodies get easy access to some of Bogotá’s best late-night eating options in the surrounding area, as well as the city’s most exclusive retail district on the doorstep.

4. La Colina Hotel Cottage

Apartment, Bed and Breakfast, Inn, Boutique Hotel

The artistic allure of this boutique hotel, high up in the forested hills of Suba, is difficult to resist. More art gallery than hotel, the five-bedroom house has been converted into one of the friendliest getaways in the Colombian capital, where walls are adorned by works from Latin American creatives. It’s also a fully-fledged member of the slow-food movement, where you can feast on local, sustainably sourced barbecue meat, homemade sourdough and pizzas cooked in the garden’s clay oven. You might not feel like leaving at all, but the art tour of joint-owner, Federico Ruiz, is an off-beat way to explore the city with an in-the-know insider.

5. Casa Gaitán Cortés

Luxury, Hotel, Boutique Hotel

Bogotá’s foodie district, Zona G or Quinta Camacho, was screaming out for an overnight option for urbane travelers looking to crawl home from the area’s nearby tasting menus at celebrated restaurants, Criterión and El Chato. And this casa delivers in the former home of the architect and visionary Bogotá mayor, Jorge Gaitán Cortés – which today ticks all the boxes for culture vultures with an eye for mid-century modern architecture and a demanding palette.

6. Bogotá Bed & Breakfast Inn

Bed and Breakfast, Inn, Eco Hotel

Bohemian, bespoke, bizarre, brilliant. Insert your two favourite Bs to make up the name of this truly authentic Teusaquillo bed and breakfast. Whatever you think of the idiosyncratic interiors, Ricky and Beatriz’s passionate approach to hospitality scores highly with eco-evangelists and animal lovers that want to have a positive impact and meet some bona fide Colombian personalities on their travels.

7. Selina Bogotá Parque de la 93

Chain Hotel, Hostel

At the upper end of the ubiquitous hostel brand’s urban retreats, this refurbished office block on Parque de la 93, is a convenient place to live, work and play – the Selina way, without having to go very far. This address is the pick of Selina’s three Bogotá properties for its fixtures, fittings and proximity to some of the city’s biggest bars and restaurants. Book yourself into one of the corner suites for a superior view of the city’s hustle and bustle.

While La Candelaria has been known to be sketchy in some areas after dark, this is the area where Bogota’s bohemian side shines and Hotel de la Opera is the finest hotel around. The hotel’s location makes it a great base for exploring the city. The balcony rooms offer brilliant views of La Candelaria, with its colorful houses and brilliant examples of street art. An impressive breakfast buffet offers cereal, cheese, ham, fresh fruit, and juice, and is a great chance to try typical Colombian specialties too.

Hotel Estelar La Fontana exudes a Colonial vibe even from the outside, with an old ivy plant creeping along the front of the building. Inside, its main courtyard has a fountain in its center and it even houses its own chapel. On a Sunday this pretty courtyard is a center for culture, where live bands come to play and artists gather to show off their work.
