Hostel Lima Limon: Hostel Lima Limon in the old town (La Candelaria)

Only stayed one night but met people who stayed for a while.

It's opened in May 2012 I believe.

I paid 20000 pesos a night with breakfast included.

It was quite good, nice friendly atmosphere, wifi, free computer to use, kitchen, not many lockers though so you might need to leave your valuables to the receptionist (I would not leave it in the dorm..).

From the airport if you take a cab, it cost about 23000 pesos at night. Less during the day.

All these prices date from June 2012.

In la candelaria, next to lots of other hostels (so no need to book, you can go to another one if that one is complete).

Candelaria is a studenty neighborhood with lots to see (museums, exhibitions, local places...)

Casa de la Botica Hotel: Brrr!

The hotel is beautiful and historic, but somewhat cold. If you stay there, ask for a room in the newer part of the hotel—they have heaters. The rooms in the original building are larger and more luxurious, but they have no heat at all. There is a large central courtyard with a small pool, but it wasn’t warm enough to use it.

The staff is really nice, and the hotel is in a good location. Plaza Bolivar, the cathedral, and several museums are in easy walking distance.

Checkin: Apartment

We stayed in a nice apartment provided by Checkin Apartments Bogotá. It was a nice renovated apartment that had a great location.

Very clean and nicely renovated.

Hotel El Dorado: A Good Option

If you don't want to share rooms with other boring foreigners, but are still on a budget, this is a great option. Also located in La Candelaria (historic centre), for only moderatly more, you get a private room with bathroom and TV. The beds are very comfy too. Though weekends there is street noise, as there are three bars and a disco on that corner, all open till 3am.

Spanish only, no English spoken.

Private room : 20,000pesos

la casona del patio amarillo: almost like you're in europe

from Cartagena, i had one night to stay in Bogota before my flight home. i didn't like staying in Le Candelaria, and a friend that i met there had said that northern Bogota is usually nicer than the south. i looekd through my lonely planet and saw a listing for La Casona del Patio Amarillo and decided to give the place a try. the taxi driver,, even when i showed him the address, had some trouble getting to the area, but it was well worth the 50min drive (by the way, don't forget to go to the taxi stand at the airport in Bogota to get a printout of the bill so you won't get ripped off)! the man sitting at the check-in desk was very courteous and helpful. he even helped me book a taxi for the next morning to the airport. when i saw my room, i was blown away. this room was nicer than my own room back home! i had requested a taxi for 530am the next morning- when i got down to the lobby, the man was there, as if he had woken up just for me, even though i had paid the night before. he was at the lobby at 5am on a sunday morning to make me a coffee, say goodbye, and open the door for me.

although this place is in a residential neighborhood, it is one street over from the main street, parallel to each other. unfortunately, there were no places within a 10min walk that offered internet use. however, the main street has sidewalk cafes, nice restaurants, and busses that go everywhere else. everyone here is in business suits-- no jeans, sneakers, anything like that. turning away from the main street, the residential places almost feel like you're walking in western europe somewhere, with cobblestone roads, lamp posts, the look of the buildings, etc. it's a lovely place to be in the evening, even if i was by myself-- there are policemen that walk along the blocks and greet you with smiles and nods.

Free bed!?

The afternoon I came to Bogota, I went to horse-riding at a place called La Callera where I came to know Cara, the American, working in Bogota, who genrously offered me to stay at her apartment which has an empty guest-room. See, surprize does wait on the way. Never plan too much! Read more about the folks and party in 'Local Customs' section.

Hilton Hotel: View of Bogota City

If you go to the Hilton hotel and up to the 41st floor for an amazing view of the city. Have a drink and listen to the music. I did not stay in this Hotel but its worth the trip just for the view alone.

Las Palmas: Nice hotel in Colombia

Its nicely located in the north part of bogota, near some nice shopping Malls (Unicentro and I forgot the other one, Barbara or something like that. It is very nice if you are coming form Skandinavia, because many families travel and stay there. It has a home type enviorment. I felt a warm enviorment staying there, and its a quality place. Single rooms with tv.

Its fun for children including a park in front, and specially its very safe, and walking around also. Also has tv with movies in the main room.
It has pool, Fuzball:), Internet, Cable tv in every room.

Media Luna: Cheap and in the centre of the sightseeing area

what makes this place special is the price - 15 000 pesos per night per person. if the place is full, there are many other similar hostels in the near viscinity - around the calle 19 between carreras 6 and 9. the location is good as well, because it's only like a ten-minute walk away from the main plazas and churches and museums.

Von Humboldt Grand Hotel &...

Von Humboldt Grand Hotel & Convention Center
Prices start US $75 (lowest rate, one person).

The hotel has 5 stars and as far as I remember all important facilities. The price is not that cheap, like you can expect it from a grand hotel.
