Bogota is the capital city of Colombia and a is one of the gay-friendliest place in South America along with Medelin on the Andes Mountains. We will find most of the accomodation to be suitable for gay couples in Gay Friendly Hotels Bogota.
The Gay Scene in Bogotá Chapinero is Bogotá’s unofficial gay area, and it’s packed with gay bars and clubs.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Colombia are among the most advanced in Latin America, and have substantially progressed since consensual homosexual activity was decriminalized in 1981. Between February 2007 and April 2008, three rulings of the Constitutional Court granted registered same-sex couples the same pension, social security and property rights as registered heterosexual couples. In 2011, Congress passed a law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation, and on 28 April 2016, the Constitutional Court legalized same-sex marriage, making Colombia the fourth South American country to legalize it.
Compared to some Latin American countries, homosexuality is well tolerated in Colombia (it was declared legal by the government in 1981).
Bogotá is Colombia’s sprawling, high-altitude capital. La Candelaria, its cobblestoned center, features colonial-era landmarks like the neoclassical performance hall Teatro Colón and the 17th-century Iglesia de San Francisco. It’s also home to popular museums including the Museo Botero, showcasing Fernando Botero’s art, and the Museo del Oro, displaying pre-Columbian gold pieces.

1. Hotel Gay San Sebastian Bogotá 3* – Gay Hotels Bogota
Gay Friendly Hotels Bogota located in the heart of chapinero, 15 Minutes from the Dorado International Airport and 20 minutes from the trucking terminal, close to the main cities gay sites, this hotel is comfortable with TV 32′, DVD, safe cashier, mini bar. In the hotel had restaurant, bar and wi fi.
We spent 2 nights in this gay-run hotel as bookends to our 2 weeks in Colombia. For 30 euro a night, it is obviously going to be a simple, but perfectly comfy, set up. It is however in a GREAT position in a pretty safe part of town. Close to gay bars, good restaurants and we felt safe walking around at night. And the service was just GREAT – they even stored my winter suitcase (with iPad etc) free of charge
I am very comfortable with my stay as the hotel is very quiet, clean the attention I received was very good I really felt very well attended in a quiet area close to everything I had the opportunity to visit the hotel bar very cozy and the cocktails and the food I really liked going back to Bogota I would love to stay here again.
This mid-size quaint hotel is situated in the best area of the city close to all amenities and to a variety of gay bars. The hotel itself has two bars; inside the hotel the balcony bar offers a great city view and the Cafe Bar out of the hotel. It also has a nice fireplace providing a romantic setting. It stands out for its excellent customer service, all kind and friendly.
We stayed in a golden room and my friends took a suite, all comfortable and clean, however I know they have smaller rooms. If you want a romantic, lovely trip this is a perfect place to stay. I surely recommend it.

Guests in search of charming service, inviting atmosphere, and a central location will find what they’re looking for at Hotel Vilar America, a family-run business since 1979. Hotel Vilar America features 7 meeting rooms, two cozy restaurants and 76 spacious guest rooms, some of which are fully equipped apartments designated to accommodate those seeking an extended stay in Bogota.
Boasting an ideal location in the main business and financial venue of Bogota, HVA is centrally located from the historic district (Candelaria) and the night live district (zona rosa), and steps away from Bogota’s gastronomical zone (zona G).
We had an excellent stay of 6 nights at Hotel Vilar America. Our room was very comfortable (executive class = mini suite) with king size bed, awesome mattress, pillows, comforters. Big screen TV. Very reliable WiFi. Room service was fast and housekeeping very attentive. The room was impeccably clean. All staff was extraordinarily friendly. (As a gay couple we cannot take this for granted everywhere in the world.)
The complimentary breakfast buffet was delicious and offered a wide variety. The hotel is located in a quiet side street just steps away from nightlife options and an incredible variety of restaurants within a 10 block radius – many different cuisines, different price classes, different styles. Also, there is an elegant supermarket (Carullo) 4 blocks away where we stocked up with snacks, drinks, etc. We can highly recommend this hotel.
Nice friendly staff ask for nacho for guidance around Bogota gay clubs and bar around achipenero near hotel very safe area everything near bar lourdes walking distance.
My partner and I stayed in a suite at this hotel for the second time. The suite had been refurbished since we last stayed which made our stay even more enjoyable. Spacious, spotlessly clean, everything you could need. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is good especially given it is included in the room rate. Location was perfect for us to walk to the many excellent restaurants nearby and the gay bars and clubs are on your doorstep.
This modern hotel is located in the Chapinero district, north of the Old Town, some 40 minutes by the local bus. The area close by is full of bars and restaurants with thriving nightlife.
Inside the buildings is divided into two distinct parts with rooms having A suffix accessed by the side of the breakfast room and B – by the lift near the reception.
The venue boasts environmentally-friendly credentials though these were rather scarce in evidence outside the water filtering machine downstairs.
Inside the bedrooms the furnishing was basic but practical, with spacious wardrobe. Bed was comfortable enough and room quiet so perfect for a night’s keep after day of exploring the city.
The safe-box was lockable by a key that needed to be left at the reception whenever leaving the hotel. Snacks and drinks were also provided although there was no fridge.
Bathroom was quite small and shower heated up rather slowly so water had to run for a while before warming up.
There were some English-speaking channels on the TV although you have to wade through dozens of local programmes first.
Breakfast was quite plentiful but not changed much throughout our stay and with good variety of fruit.
Very nice hotel in the Chapinero neighborhood. Lots of restaurants, stores, and bars in the neighborhood, with access to many bus lines.
Room was quiet and comfortable. There is a safe in the room, and a small fridge with snacks and drinks offered. Hot water was iffy; warm water frequently went cold in mid-shower, forcing you to step away from the stream for a while until it heated up again. On some nights, it got a little nippy; there was no thermostat in the room to adjust the temperature, but there was an extra blanket in the closet, and that was fine.
Breakfast was excellent, served in a large, bright room. There was a large variety of breads, cakes, fruits, yogurt, jello, and juices.
Our room was divided into 3 sections. When we entered, there was an area with a small Sofa one could sleep on if the property permits that and a small dining table and a small Refrigerator (mini-bar).
The largest area had a huge King Size bed, with a flat screen TV set on the wall in front of it, and also a Twin Bed. And a small Night stand. The TV service is Directv.
The area farthest from the door had the bathroom, an area with drawers, etc. and a closet. There is a small Room Safe. It was large enough that I could put our Tablet inside it. Inside the closet was a small Hot Water Heater. I believe the room having an individual Hot Water Heater is a “Plus”. Over the years, we have stayed in various properties where they have one huge Hot Water system and occasionally if one gets up later, there is no more Hot Water, because other guests have used all of it, or, the system hasn’t been turned on or is not working. There is a large Shower in the bathroom, a Hair Drier, various things a guest might have forgotten at home, etc.
The Wi-Fi was excellent. Very strong WiFi and never a problem during our 3 night stay. We were “Mobile”, with 3 Cell phones and a Tablet, at times using the Wifi simultaneously.
Our reservation included Free Breakfasts, but I wasn’t sure from the web sites I used, if that was a Continental Breakfast or a Full Breakfast. They have a nice Breakfast Buffet in one of the restaurants, from 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. Very good. Lots of food!

I love the vibe of the W Bogotá. Very lively, cool and gay-friendly. The rooms are very modern. The gym is spacious and well-equipped. The service is good but not spotless. Employees tend to be friendly, but not as friendly as the ones at the JW Marriott. I love the WhatsApp customer service line available 24/7. The meeting rooms are pretty sleek.
The mini-bar is pretty amazing and offers healthy snack options. Breakfast is OK – definitely try the green juice and ask for oatmeal if it is not offered in the buffet. Unfortunately, I will likely not go back to this hotel, because it’s not ideally located and mostly because the lobby and the main bar are not business-friendly. There are not appropriate tables to work. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and have a drink but not for work.
This W is embedded in the lower floors of an office tower which makes it look bigger than it is (and so there’s no cool rooftop bar which you might find in another stand alone property). It maintains the generally high standards of other W’s and its located adjacent to the cute little northern Usaquen neighborhood. The restaurant and bar were good and there are plenty of other restaurants at all price-points a 5-10 minute walk away (current exchange rates mean you’ll be paying modestly by most US standards for even the best meals).
Its location means you need to build in time to get to some of the main attractions in southern La Candelaria but taxis are cheap and there is an express route (avenida/Carrera 1) that hugs the base of the mountain which cuts travel time down to 15-20 minutes). Heading away from the W, the white taxis can be charged directly to your room. They can also dispatch those to pick you up but you’ll need to plan in advance for a 45 minute pick-up wait. To use a trusted subset of the prolific yellow taxis all over town, download the Tappsi (Uber-like) app and learn the address system which involves a two-point reference; the street (calle) and avenue (carrera) location.
The weekly event allowing Pedestrians and cyclists the opportunity to take back traffic choked streets) is a must do activity while in Bogota and although we didn’t plan our trip to include a Sunday (the traditional day), we happened to be there over Christmas and, as I discovered on an Xmas morning hunt for coffee, is also celebrated on holidays so I decided to go spontaneously. The W has a fleet of a half dozen brilliant titanium white matching girls Sears Huffy-style fixed-gear bikes tricked out with a handlebar mounted wicker basket (the only thing missing was Toto). As an openly gay guy, I thought it would be pretty funny to ride one of these Friends of Dorothy beasts proudly into Plaza de Bolivar. I’m not hugely picky and I’ve ridden a range of bikes over the years, including fixed gear/no brake in velodrome races, and this was a piece of crap. So either the W needs to upgrade the fleet (maybe aerodynamic wicker baskets?) or you, dear reader need to make advance arrangements with one of the local bike outfitters.
There is a mega-mall (with a relatively unobtrusive facade) across the street so I guess you could buy your own if you wanted on.
The rooms are spacious, modern yet extremely comfortable!
Those who prefer a more traditional hotel experience or room might not like the modern designs of the rooms. I personally enjoy this hotel and find it refreshingly different.
The bathroom is huge with an amazing jet shower system. The location is top notch right across the street from the vibrant Usaquen area and next to several important business buildings and even a shopping mall just a few minutes down the road.
The breakfast buffet is delicious and has a great variety of local and international dishes. I would definitely stay here again.
How much does a room costs at W Bogota?

4. Ibis Bogota Museo 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Bogota
Set in an impressive building only 50 m from the National Museum, Hotel Ibis Bogota Museo offers rooms with free Wifi and cable TV in Bogota. It features a restaurant and a bar. The Gold Museum is 2 km away.
With modern wooden furnishing, rooms at Hotel Ibis Bogota Museo feature air conditioning and private bathrooms. All of them have parquet floors and large windows, which make them very bright.
A buffet breakfast is served daily at a fee. Local and international dishes can be enjoyed at the restaurant, whereas drinks and snacks can be ordered at the bar.The Ibis Bogotá Museo is located in Centro Internacional, the largest business district in Bogotá, to one side of the Museo Nacional, 15 minutes from the historic center of “La Candelaria” and 45 minutes from the airport.
The rooms are equipped with bathroom, TV, soundproofed windows, safe and central air conditioning. The “Comes & Bebes” restaurant and bar has a 24-hour fast food service. We also have free Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the hotel and covered parking.
This is a typical Ibis hotel, with a standard Ibis room and bathroom. That means that beds are comfortable, there is a small desk, if you need to work on your laptop. The bench seat doubles as a space for your suitcase. The flat screen TV is wall mounted, with a couple of English language channels.
There is free wifi. The Ibis bathrooms are well designed. Small but with quite a large shower with glass doors. I’ve stayed in identical Ibis rooms elsewhere in South America, Asia, Europe and Australia, so you know what you are getting for the reasonable room rate of $50 or $60 a night.
The breakfast was good for the price and served in the lobby cafe.
This Ibis is extremely well located in the centre of the city and in walking distance of shops and restaurants. Why pay more for a downtown location?
Having stayed in the Ibis in Medellin this was an identical stay and just as perfect. Again the rooms are the normal Ibis quality and spotlessly clean. Location is good for downtown. It’s not right downtown which is good because its not the best neighborhood and its a quick cab ride to the trendy northern suburbs.
Avoid the breakfast in the hotel if you can, at 13000 for buffet it’s pricy when Archie’s downstairs is freshly prepared for you, Jaun Valdez coffee and amazing pancakes!
Wok, the famous Bogota Asian food restaurant is across from the museum and is highly recommended for dinner. There is a Juan Valdez cafe, McDonalds, Subway, Wok, Bogota Beer Company and a huge Exito all within easy walking distance.
.A good choice and great value.
Good sized room with a lot of light, modern furniture, comfortable bed and pillows, lots of space for my stuff and all the basic comforts to have a great time there. Clean bathroom with a powerful shower. Very good and various breakfast, served in a rich buffet downstairs. Once again, the perfect Ibis style.
As always at Ibis, the staff is amazing. Well trained, kind, polite, professional, ready to help, they made me feel fine in any moment.
Another plus for Ibis Museo is the position. The hotel is strategically located in a central neighbourhood but not right in the centre, which means you’re staying in a quieter area instead of dealing with the chaos of the most crowded streets. The Cathedral square is about 15 minutes away, the restaurant area of Macarena only 5 minutes away and all around it’s full of shops, fast food, pubs, everything you need. If you’re travelling on public transport, in front of the hotel there’s a Transmilenio station directly linked to the airport.

The hotel is located in a very secure neighbourhood to a large mall unicentro. Has a beer bar where they combine with with different liquor that makes it interesting.The hotel is one of the best in Bogota, but that is not the same as expensive, in fact the Hotel is very affordable and the suites are beautiful, clean and with a great view. they offer free breakfast with chefs (Students from SENA) who are there to make the best of your first meal of the day, if you like me likes to eat something lets say at 3 am, just press 2 and ask for anything from their menu, and if you feel like drink a good beer, the pub BEER is downstairs. just one more plus.
Unicentro (mall) is just in front of the hotel. and the EXITO (similar to Walmart) is 24 hours. in other words, everything is there for you to enjoy. movie theaters, restaurants. and most important very safe area.
Breakfast was included in the price of my room and it was a very good breakfast, nothing out of this world as in variety, but good enough to satisfy you in the morning. Unfortunately, coffee is bad. But coffee is bad all over Colombia. I was told the best beans are exported. In this topic, the best coffee I had was at Juan Valdez at the airport and I had to ask for a double cappuccino, meaning ,double amount of coffee in the brewing.
Location was perfect, right across from Unicentro Mall which has bowling, shopping and restaurants just across the street. For convenience, there is a drugstore opened 24 hours just a block away. Parking is free, free wifi included and the best is breakfast with a big selection including soup, natural fruit juices, pastries, eggs, coffee, chocolate and a lot more, The hotel has a pub and a casino and it is easy to get a taxi to o anywhere from there.
