Other Info:
IH Bogotá is housed in a lovely old building in the heart of the historical district of La Candelaria. The building is famous for being the place where five former Colombian presidents used to dress and take refreshment in before their ceremony of investiture, as a plaque in the courtyard testifies. There are many original features, including beautiful tiled and wooden floors, carved wooden ceilings, a wide, wooden staircase that sweeps up to the first floor, and a spacious interior courtyard that lets in plenty of light.
