Airy, bright and colorful rooms, as well as a pleasant rooftop balcony, are the some of the hallmark features of this stylish boutique.
Those looking for lodging in the southern part of the city might consider Apartahotel Turístico Jardines Del Caney, a funky and fairly-priced boutique apartment hotel. Japanese-inspired decor adorns most of the clean and comfy apartments, while a host of modern amenities can be found throughout.
Cheap, cheerful, and surprisingly stylish, this cozy hostal is another excellent budget option in the trendy San Antonio neighborhood. Guest interaction is encouraged through communal dinners in its central leafy patio – the perfect way to meet other travelers from around the world. Nevertheless, this is no shabby backpackers’ haunt, with each guest having their own stylish and spacious room. Just don’t try to bring those noisy kids because children under 12 are not welcome.
Those who need to stay way down south in the residential Barrio Pance need look no further than Casa Santa Mónica Pance. With spacious, colorful quarters and a delicious healthy breakfast delivered daily to your door, it’s by far the best option at the southern extreme of the city. An expansive garden also provides the perfect place to host cost-effective events.
Another beautiful boutique in the funky Barrio San Antonio, this stylish spot is characterized by its unique geometric design. Of their 26 rooms, the deluxe suites are of particular interest, although all have ample space and chic contemporary decor. Be sure to check out their onsite restaurant to indulge in some of the best burgers in Calí.
These stylish lofts in the heart of the city offer a studio bedroom, living space and kitchenette for an incredibly affordable price. Each tastefully decorated room is colorful and contemporary, though what garners the most rave reviews is the opulent outdoor rooftop jacuzzi.
