If you are in town on business or appreciate the finer things, boutique and business hotels are scattered north of Calle 65, many within walking distance of the lively scene of Zona G, Zona Rosa or Parque 93. If travel's your game and time's short, La Candelaria is where most of Bogotá's attractions and budget lodgings are located.

La Candelaria

In the past couple of years, the historic suburb of La Candelaria has seen an explosion in hostels. Generally private rooms in hostels are better than cheapie rooms in the several dated, grubby hotels around here. Higher-end travelers can choose from a couple of fine locales with more colonial spirit than you'll find anywhere else in the capital.
