Hotel Opera, Bogota

Stroll slowly around the cobbled streets of Bogota’s most historic district – La Candelaria – and you’ll be infused with the romance of the place. All around you young people and international visitors are thronging the streets, their smiles illuminated by the lights from restaurants, cafés and interesting little craft shops. Even the walls of the old colonial buildings seem steeped in romance. Questions fill the air: why are all the old doorways so high? Is this the house where Manuelita Saenz lived with Simon Bolivar? Did she escape the authorities by climbing though this window?

What isn’t in question is the prime setting of your hotel. Specify the Hotel Opera when visiting Bogota on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Colombia and you’ll be staying at the heart of the historic district.
