Aragon (Guest House)

by Alex on Jun.22, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Carrera 3 No.13-14
La Candelaria
Bogotá
Colombia

Lacks the atmosphere that one might seek in a hostel but is cheap at 20,000 COP per night for a private room. Ten percent discount offered for month-long stays. Has a communal kitchen but no wifi at time of this post

I’ve heard tell that the hot water is not always hot

Take the cable car or funicular to the Cerro de Monseratte and see the spectacular views over Bogotá and/or dine at one of the two fine restaurants. The best time to go for views is a little while before sunset so as to see the city by day and by night. Not really worth the trip when cloudy…
