WHERE TO STAY

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - COLOMBIA -

W Bo­gota

This ul­tra-con­tem­po­rary tower ho­tel opened in 2014 and looms over the Santa Bar­bara busi­ness dis­trict. Cel­e­brat­ing Bo­gota’s myth­i­cal links with the fic­ti­tious El Do­rado, pub­lic spa­ces glow with bold golden art and sculp­ture. Rooms are funky and spa­cious and there’s an ex­cel­lent spa. From US$280 per night. star­wood­ho­tels.com

Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Casa Med­ina

In a char­ac­ter­ful 1946 build­ing (be­low top) in the buzzing Zona G, this bou­tique-style prop­erty has el­e­gant rooms with beamed ceil­ings, hand­carved wooden fur­nish­ings and fire­places. The fi­nan­cial dis­trict and myr­iad food op­tions are close by. From around US$336 per night. foursea­sons.com/bo­go­tacm

BOG

Opened in 2012 in trendy Zona T in the La Cabr­era dis­trict – which comes alive af­ter of­fice hours – this is one of the city’s few truly up­scale bou­tique prop­er­ties. De­sign is min­i­mal­ist, and the at­mos­phere is some­what cor­po­rate – but a big draw is the rooftop swim­ming pool. From US$170 per night. bogho­tel.com

Ho­tel de la Opera

If you want to base your­self in his­toric La Can­de­laria, this very good-value ho­tel – housed in a Re­pub­li­can-style land­mark build­ing – has lofty, gra­ciously ap­pointed rooms over­look­ing the pedes­tri­anised streets be­low. There’s good Ital­ian food served here, with hearty tra­di­tional eater­ies nearby just off the plaza. From US$122 per night. hotel­opera.com.co

Sof­i­tel Bo­gota Vic­to­ria Re­gia

Con­tem­po­rary, com­fort­able and filled with light, the name of this Ac­cor prop­erty (left) hon­ours the Ama­zo­nian gi­ant wa­terlily. It has a good in­for­mal French restau­rant and bar and is five min­utes’ walk from din­ing hub Par­que 93. From US$164 a night. sof­i­tel.com
