Fodor's Expert Review Hotel de la Ópera
Calle 10 No. 5–72, Bogotá, Bogota D.C., 111711, Colombia
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.
