Open since October of 2013, EK Hotel is a modern boutique hotel in one of Bogotá’s ritziest neighborhoods. Within a few minutes’ walk, you’ll find restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shopping; especially centered around Calle 85, the T-Zone neighborhood, and the tree-lined plaza called Parque 93. Even closer, there are a few restaurants that share a plaza with the hotel, such as the newly opened Black Bear, recommended for its raw bar, sharing plates, and craft cocktails. However, with the on-site Cafe Bar Lounge serving all day, you don’t need to leave the hotel for a meal or drink.
Rates at the EK Hotel start at $184 including a buffet breakfast, which presents a comparably priced alternative to the scene-y B.O.G Hotel and pricier Charleston Hotel, both of which are a few blocks away in the same area.
EK Hotel’s 70 rooms and 20 suites feature modern design, free WiFi, and views of the surrounding area and the Andes in the distance. Perks for iPrefer members with Gold or Platinum status include a bottle of wine and spa credits. All guests have access to the rooftop gym, sauna, and terrace, which offers an excellent panoramic view.
