I was recently looking over pictures from a trip I took to Bogotá, Colombia. My wife and I traveled to this wonderful city for a friend’s wedding back in August. It was a really spectacular trip, and we were fortunate enough to stay in a hotel that offered both the traditional hospitality and the modern flair of Colombia.

The Sofitel Victoria Regia is located in the north of Bogotá, in the Zona Rosa, about thirty minutes from the airport. The Sofitel arranged for a private car to take us from the airport to the hotel where we settled in to our luxurious and pleasant room. Each room comes with a comfortable, plush bed, a large flat panel TV and a marble bathroom with separate bath and shower. The l’Occitane toiletries were also a lovely touch.

Because our trip was short, we only had the opportunity to dine at their restaurant, Basilic, one time. The modern bar and restaurant offer fresh and well-presented fare. If you are staying for an extended period of time, be sure to explore the surrounding neighborhood – you’ll find an impressive selection of great restaurants, fun bars as well as local art galleries.

Buen Viaje!
