Cheap Hotels in Colombia following my 3 week tour (25 nights)

The selection of CHEAP HOTELS IN COLOMBIA has taken a lot of time. Indeed, it is necessary to compare the geographical situations, the services, the prices, the opinions …

In parallel, I did research on the neighborhoods of big cities like for example: Bogota districts, Medellin districts or Cartagena districts.

Herebelow, you can find my selection of cheap hotels in Colombia.


Day 1-2 – Bogota Saint Simon Hotel

See this hotel on Booking

Located in the Zona Rosa district, near the Andino and Atlantis shopping centers, it has a restaurant and free Wi-Fi. I chose this hotel first for its location (the safest area of ​​Bogota) and for its comfort. And these two criteria in Bogota necessarily imply a price a little higher than average.

I chose this Guest House for several reasons:

  • The beautiful terrace with views on which we can eat or take our breakfasts;
  • Its price very interesting compared to hotels in the same area;

Days 17-18 – Minca – Glamping Hotel

Why this hotel? Because the wooden bungalows are located in the mountain in the middle of the forest: it is reached by foot by a small path of 600 meters … The site near the departure of hiking seems splendid, calm and conducive to rest.

Days 19-20-21 Cartagena – Plaza de la Trinidad hotel

Once again, I first chose the location (Getsemani district) of this very cheap hotel to make my choice. Indeed, I absolutely wanted to be close to the sites to visit so as not to waste time in transport. In addition, the hotel has a swimming pool and the rooms are air conditioned: it is important considering the temperatures in August … Finally, the very suitable price was decisive because the accommodations on Cartagena are rather expensive because the city ​​is very touristy.
