Childish giggling over the name aside, B.O.G. Hotel is a gleaming luxurious masterpiece that's spared no expense over modern amenities, artistic strokes of creativity or lavish comfort. If you're not taken by the golden decoration or the emerald touches masterminded by Portuguese interior designer, Nini Andadre Silva, the 55 rooms will still wow with opulent queen-sized beds, huge TVs, hydro massage rain showers and deep spa baths. The rooftop infinity pool has some incredible views across the city too.Address: Cundinamarca, Carrera 11 no 86 74, Bogotá,

Atmospheric and full of character, this Bogotá hotel offers modern facilities with an Old World atmosphere.

With contemporary touches and a modern palate of creams, whites and flashes of red, the Celebrities Suites could be modelled on a famous personality's own pad – if it weren't for the huge murals of superstars sitting above each bed. Each individually designed apartment comes themed around a superstar (think Brad Pitt or Beyonce) and is fully equipped with a kitchen, generous lounge area and beautiful bedroom. A flatscreen TV and Wi-Fi come as standard, while breakfast in bed with Brad is available on request.Address: , Calle 74 N 10-33, Bogotá,

Wyndham Hotel Bogota
While it may not look like a work of genius from the outside, behind the doors Wyndham Hotel Bogota flexes its creative muscles. Its 261 rooms are well-appointed and spacious with huge windows letting in plenty of light, but it's the blossoming of primary colours, mesmerising carpets and patterned wallpaper that make it such a pleasure to stay in.
