When looking for accommodation, Bogotá accepts kinds of budgets, from low cost options to the most luxurious hotels, here you can find everything. Yes, Bogotá has it all! In this article I will show you the best accommodation options depending on your budget.
When planning a trip, accommodation will always be one of the first topics –if not the first– to arise. Finding accommodation that suits your wallet in a big city like Bogotá is not difficult at all! However, if you do not know where to look, it could take a considerable amount of time. But no worries, there are, indeed, options for every budget. Diversity is what makes this city amazing!
Having a low budget doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t get good accommodation in Bogotá! Remember that, while it’s a fast-growing city, you can still find lower prices than most of Europe or the US. In Bogotá, it could be said that a quality, low-price accommodation will fall between $20.000 COP (6.50 USD) and $80.000 COP (26 USD) per night. So the best option for a low budget would always be hostels. They have changed a lot in recent times, and people and travellers have come to learn that hostels are no longer considered cheap, bad, accommodations in the not-so-pretty parts of a city. Truth is, hostels are great, and in Bogotá, better! Plus, you get to meet really nice people from all over the world.

If you go a little bit to the northeast, you can find CX Hostel (https://www.cxhomehotel.com/), located in Chapinero, one of the most cultural, social and interesting parts of the city, with a lot of activities and places to go. Casa Capital (https://www.casacapitalhostel.com/es-es) is also a great idea as it is located in La Soledad: a traditional neighborhood with very nice architecture and cultural life. Both of these hostels offer a range of excellent services and accommodations for a low price.
The best way to truly get to know Bogotá and its culture is to stay with locals: there is no better way to share and meet people, and it would make your trip way easier and better. Also, you would be supporting the local economy.

The best option for a high budget in Bogotá will sit between hotels (better for short stays) or apartment rentals (better for a long stay). A higher budget would be considered a price above $200.000 COP (64 USD) per night. I might recommend the hotels located in the east-north side of the city: they are usually considered to be some of the best ones in terms of quality. And are also located in some of the best social and shopping areas in Bogotá.
