Private room and bathroom in shared apartment***
Cozy but private bedroom with a single bed and private bathroom in a large apartment with an incredible view of Bogota (no extra cost for the view, binoculars included). We live in a high rise going up the mountainside, in the Neighborhood (Barrio) Chico Alto. Free use of entire well equipped kitchen, common areas, workout equiptment and wi-fi... there is even a yoga studio included in your stay! The room is on the small side but it is private and has its own bathroom. And of course you are free to share all of the large common spaces. If you need to work during your stay, this would be a great environment for you.
We are located in a residential neighborhood just a 5-10 minute taxi ride from the Zona T, which is a great place for shopping, eating and going out for a cocktail. The neighborhood is very safe, but quiet and residential. It is located about 4 blocks off the main Kra. 7 Street. Please note**: The closest supermarket is about 10 to 15 minute walking distance at Cra. 7 and Cll. 83. There are plenty of buses that run past our house if you are up for using public buses, or you can call for a safe registered taxi to pick you up and take you anywhere in the city. We will explain all of your transportation options and where to walk, etc.
Giovanna works from home in her own studio and maintains a very chill-out, homey, low-key type of environment. Parking space available if you rent or have a car. We can provide clean towels and a hairdryer at no cost if you want to lighten your suitcase load.

They were fantastic! I could not have asked for better, friendlier hosts than Sarah & Giovanna. They've been awfully helpful and accommodating. Walking up towards La Calera was rather excruciating, though, if you're not prepared for it. Other than that, this is truly a lovely place to stay. Highly recommended for solo travelers.
Excellent hosts! Giovanna and Sarah were super helpful and provided informative maps and an overview of the city from their incredible apartment. They were available to answer any questions I had and went out of their way to make sure I made the most out of my stay. I would highly recommend their place - it was a beautiful apartment with easy access to the Zona G, T, Parque 93 and a bus that takes you direct to Chapinero and the city center. Bogota can get a little hectic and it was great to have an oasis to come home to at the end of the day - a bit hard to leave at times because the place is so nice!
Pros: Amazing views, relaxing atmosphere in the apt, great hosts, private bath, nice cooking utensils/pans if you cook, super safe residential area, an exercise room, etc. short distance to walkable residential neighborhoods, maps and lay of the city tutorial provided by hosts really helped me understand the city, hosts were full of recommendations on where to eat, shop, etc.
Cons: The room is a little on the small side and the apartment seemed a bit removed at first (although it's a really nice walk down to Parque 93) but not bad once they explained the transportation options.
Bottom line - if you are looking for a relaxing home environment - a place where you can relax and enjoy the incredible views of Bogota during your stay - this place offers it all!
Sarah and Giovanna were fantastically helpful and friendly hosts and I had a great stay with them. The view in their apartment was indeed stunning and they provided very thorough information about the neighborhood, transportation in the area, maps, etc. They also let me use their cookware, had some spices/cooking oil/etc for guest use, and were knowledgable about local farmers' markets which I really appreciated as a long-term traveler who loves to cook. Guests who plan on sleeping in should be aware that the room can be a little loud in the morning because it is close to the kitchen. The neighborhood itself is quiet, safe, but still fairly close to the downtown areas of Bogotá. Recommended. Thanks, Sarah and Giovanna!
I don't think there could be better hosts than Sarah & Giovanna. They are amazingly helpful, incredibly generous and just fun, good people. They were happy to help with any/all questions I had and immediately made me feel welcome in their home. They have a lot of information about Bogota, other locations to see in Colombia and a couple great maps to help you find your way home/around the city. They were also so patient in helping me practice my Spanish :) The apartment is great, spacious and has a beautiful view. The room itself is small, but you have your own bathroom attached. There are buses that stop very close to the apartment, but you can also walk to the grocery store and a little farther to shopping centers/restaurants. Downtown is a little far, but it's not difficult to get there using the bus & Transmilenio.
I definitely recommend staying here!
The flat is situated in a very safe location with easy access to the centre (10-20 minute bus ride depending on traffic). The views are spectacular! The room is very clean, and benefits from a very comfortable mattress.
Giovanna was very helpful and pleasant throughout my stay and I felt like home.
My stay with Giovanna and Sarah was fantastic. Giovanna was an incredibly gracious host, patiently waiting my arrival when traffic made it impossible for me to get to the apartment on time. She immediately made me feel welcome and made sure that I had all of the information I needed to get around. Even though I was pretty familiar with Bogota, it was clear that she was ready to offer a lot of great advice about the city and what to check out and expect when exploring. Best of all were our fun conversations over coffee or breakfast--which were perfect opportunities for me to pratice my Spanish, though English is certainly an option for anyone who needs it. I would definitely recommend this place to any travelers out there and hope to return soon!
This is a lovely accommodation! Sarah was in the US when I visited, so I only met Giovanna, but she was a fantastic host! She made me feel very welcome and helped me get totally settled in Bogota. I highly recommend staying here. The apartment is a bit of a walk from the surrounding neighborhoods, but the buses are easy to figure out and the taxis are very cheap. Also, the view is amazing!
Arriving into Bogota was a little overwhelming as my spanish is quite poor so I was very thankful to be staying with Sarah & Giovanna. The apartment is lovely and has the most amazing view. The girls are fabulous and helped me get my bearings. If I was staying elsewhere I could have had a very different experience in Bogota. I would definitely recommend staying with Sarah & Giovanna.
Sarah and Giovanna are amazing hosts. I recently relocated to Bogotá and they made me feel welcome and comfortable, answered tons of questions about the neighborhood, Bogotá and Colombia, and they're just loads of fun to hang out with. The apartment has an amazing view overlooking the city, a full kitchen and a cozy room with its own half bathroom. What more could I want?! I definitely recommend staying with Sarah and Giovanna. I know you will enjoy it as much as I did!
My experience has been the very best. Sarah is fabulous and very helpful, very nice. The place was perfect for my needs. I recommend Sarah and her place highly.
