This pair of colonial buildings adjacent to the Teatro Colón in La Candelaria found new life as an elegant hotel. The sleek tile and polished hardwood floors throughout are remarkable, as is the chic furniture imported from Italy. The generously proportioned rooms have high ceilings and huge windows, and some have balconies that open out onto a quiet side street. The Mediterranean cuisine at the hotel's restaurant, La Scala, is wonderful, while regional dishes are accompanied by spectacular views at El Mirador, on the top floor. There is a first rate spa, too.

Beautiful, roomy, classical. This development of old colonial houses in the La Candelaria district, next to the Opera House (of course) has everything. Our room, they are all individual so some maybe are different, was stunning and will be long remembered. Good simple reastaurant on the roof, reasonable breakfast, the hotel has been redecorated in excellent taste. Lovely roomy atriums, even a little chapel left from the original buidlings. Helpful
staff (although little English). Unfortunately full when we returned to Bogota, this is an excellent find, and I would normally keep it to myself, but I am unlikely to be back in Bogota very often.
