This 1950s two-story Art Deco house was transformed into a stunning, whimsical seven-room boutique family-owned bed and breakfast. Located in Bogota’s Quinta Camacho—an upscale neighborhood south of the central Zona T district—there’s no other place in Bogotá quite like it (and there are free bikes you can borrow to explore the city from the hotel).
Before opening the hotel, owner Helena Davilá opened many shops throughout the city. Inspired by local entrepreneurs and artisans, the 13 unique rooms are bright, airy, and full of greenery and natural light. Each one is named after one of the owner’s—Davilá—nieces or nephews, with unique decor to match their personalities, like her niece who loves ballet. The hotel is filled with a mix of natural furniture from the many emerging Colombian designers and antiques from Davilá’s grandmother’s home. With a total capacity of 17 guests, it feels more like a guesthouse than a hotel. There’s free WiFi, and all rooms have a desk, a TV, safe, and some have a balcony or garden views.
Breakfast is served daily around a long wooden table in the courtyard, where freshly-baked bread is served, as well as delicious Colombian coffee. It’s a great area to soak up the sun.
In the evenings, the dining room seats guests communally. There’s also a cozy lounge, and library where you can enjoy the relaxing space to read a book and sip on a glass of local red, next to the fireplace (there are also lovely toe-warming hot water bottles tucked into your sheets on those cool nights in the mountains).
Note: Casa Legado offers day trips or overnight stays at the Manqué El Rosal, a two-bedroom farmhouse in the countryside an hour outside the city.
