bogota city center

Bogotá, the capital and largest city in Colombia is a historically significant and stunning destination for travelers to enjoy, with a temperate climate that offers a nice escape from the heat and humidity from the rest of the country!

Located right in the middle of the country and surrounded by national parks, green spaces and the famous Monserrate mountain, Bogotá is bursting with things to do and see and requires at least a few days to fully appreciate! Luckily, I have done the hard work for you and in this guide, I will take you through some of the best places to stay in the Colombian capital for all budgets and preferences!

PRO TIP: A word of warning, Bogotá is a city of over 7 million people and an important finance and commerce city for not only Colombia, but also for Latin America, so Bogota accommodation is often booked far in advance. Therefore, I recommend booking as soon as you know your travel plans, there’s nothing worse than having to settle for a second-rate hotel on your dream trip!

The only remaining question is: where to stay in Bogota? So here it is, your ultimate guide Bogotá hotels, as they would say in Colombia: ¡Empezamos!

Best Apartments in Bogotá, Colombia

If you are the kind of person who prefers a touch more privacy and independence whilst you travel, Bogotá is a paradise of apartments and self-contained properties that will allow you the freedom to really set up camp and relax! Offering benefits such as the ability to cook your own meals (and therefore save money to splurge elsewhere), I often choose to stay in an apartment.

Much the same as the hotels, The Colombian capital has options to satiate the needs of all different types of budgets. So jump in to my guide of apartments for rent in Bogotá, Colombia!
