Suites, apartments and condo rentals are increasingly popular choices for visitors looking for a blend of luxury, comfort and convenience. Choose an exclusive modern apartment near the celebrated La Fontana hotel to enjoy 5-star service, elegant furnishings and family-friendly children’s play park. In downtown La Candelaria, couples and visiting executives can explore the cultural Spanish colonial quarter from sleek, urban lofts with completely furnished kitchen, living, dining and bedrooms.
Home to over 8 million people, Bogota has reinvented itself, stepping away from its threatening past to become a featured capital in Latin America. With an appreciation for their cultural heritage, elegant churches and lovely Spanish colonial architecture, the city aggressively improved security and embarked on infrastructure projects that have made Bogota a preferred destination.
La Candelaria is a visitor favorite, a pleasant sort of bohemian quarter and cultural center with charming narrow streets, Creole iron balconies, cafés and candlelit bars, churches and a lively mix of locals and visitors. The new Centro Cultural Gabriel Garcia Marquez makes a wonderful stop for art galleries, performing arts, children’s art workshops and (skip the Starbucks thought), a patio-side Colombian coffee at Juan Valdez Café. Ward off the evening Andean chill with a stop at El Gato Gris for a fireside mulled wine and pasta or crepes. Try the Zone G area for a wide choice of 5-star restaurants with continental cuisines from Peruvian and, naturally, Colombian to French and Asian. The Criterion is one of the most popular for those who crave French-influenced gourmet dining.
Many visitors are drawn to the personal, guided walking and biking tours that provide exceptional insight into the breadth of the city. Mount Monserrate is another wonderful choice with spectacular views of the capital and scenic mountain landscape. Another local treasure is the modern Gold Museum (Museo de Oro) with free guided tours and impressive displays of metallurgy and pre-Colombian artifacts – in fact, the world’s largest pre-Hispanic collection of gold.
Besides offering the space, convenience of home-cooked meals and ample amenities; condo and apartment rentals provide a residential feel apart from the traditional hotel experience. Our candid guest reviews allow you to make the right choice for your family rental or business retreat.
