We have multiple choices of hotels for the conference, depending on your interests and planned activities. We have chosen three specific parts of Bogota to arrange accommodations, and have made arrangements with these hotels for conference participants. A short description of these three areas are provided below, with links to the hotels.

1.Downtown (Average 15 min walk to the University of the Andes).

Fall in love with La Candelaria neighborhood, a place in Bogotá that brings together architecture, history, culture, religiosity, and gastronomy. You can read more about this historic neighborhood here. This is where most government buildings are and is a well-protected area.

We recommend that you stay at the Hotel de la Opera, which is nearby the university.

The preferred way to book is by emailing: [email protected] and [email protected] where you can mention SCECR 2023, and you would get a discounted rate of 420.000 COP (~93 USD) for a standard double.  Of course, you can book on the official site or at other OTAs, such as Expedia, as well.

2. North Zone (roughly 12 km, 30 min by car, in traffic can take up to 45 min to the University of the Andes)
Bogotá’s Zona Rosa, also known as Zona T, is the best place to stay in Bogotá for those seeking sophistication and fun. This is where many of the best restaurants and clubs are located, and you can read more about the neighborhood here.  

We recommend you stay at either of these hotels right in the middle of the fun.  Please note that Bogotá’s traffic can be bad, so at peak traffic times, it may take a while for you to get downtown to the conference site.

3. Near the airport and the U.S. Embassy (Grand Hyatt Bogota) (7 km, 15-20 min by car to the University of the Andes) 
If you want to stay at a convenient location to reach downtown and a great hotel, consider the Grand Hyatt Bogota.  It has one of the best indoor pools in Bogota and a great restaurant. You’ll be 15 minutes away from the university and the airport.
