About the Hotel and its history

Hotel de la Opera is right in the centre of La Candelaria, Bogotá’s historic center, a network of cobblestone streets where buildings from the Colonial and Republican eras can be found housing the most representative political, academic and religious institutions in Colombia.

It is the historical and cultural heart of Bogotá. A place that will delight lovers of architecture and connoisseurs of world history. Attracted by the magic and tranquility of this unique environment in Latin America, in the last 15 years dozens of restaurants, craftsmen, antiques and jewelry shops have been created in the area.

Many of the houses have recovered their former splendor. In the evenings young people and tourists crowd the streets turning this area into one of the most animated of the city.

Thanks to its great offer of museums, traditional churches, its night life, safety and ease of transit, La Candelaria is the preferred location of tourists and business travelers, from overseas and national. In La Candelaria, the old city remains vibrantly alive, thanks to conservation of genuine national treasures, preserved in art collections, museums, libraries, theaters and buildings.
