The Space

Looking for the best deal in the hippest neighborhood in Bogota?

The apartment has a full-sized bed and a futon-couch in the living room, and can accommodate up to 3 guests. It also comes with a fully equipped kitchen.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay was fabulous-- we enjoyed the apartment and especially it's location. The bathroom is a little small so I kept hitting my elbows, but we had some good laughs. :) Fernanda provided a blender upon request which we appreciated. And we were able to borrow a corkscrew for a bottle of wine from a neighbor. (Would be a good addition to the silverware drawer.)

    Overall a great place to stay! Some very nice restaurants just down the block and the area felt very safe. I love Bogota! Thanks, Fernanda!

  • The place is really basic but in a nice area and clean! Didn' get to meet the hosts but communication was just great and no problem with checkin! Like I suggested to the hosts I would upgrade the apartment with some utilities so that the apartemnt would feel more like "home away from home".

  • Great apartment and very close to central. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and Fernanda was always checking in to make sure everything was ok. I recommend this apartment to anyone most importantly for the host. Many things close by to see and the neighborhood felt very safe. Many great restaurants just around the corner. If you need to get around town there is a bus station just down the hill. Thanks Fernanda again for your constant communication

  • La casita es asi de bonita como se ve en las fotos.
    Muy bien ubicada en el barrio de la Macarena, al lado de buenos restaurantes y bares, y a 20 minutos caminando del centro historico de la ciudad.
    Silenciosa y acogedora, no falta nada para no sentirse como en casa.
    Fernanda nos atendiò en todo lo que necesitabamos y resolviò nuestras dudas sin esperas.
    Ya sabemos adonde volver en nuestra proxima visita a Bogotà!
    Muy aconsejado!!

  • Having stayed in Bogota on a few occassions, I found Fernanda & Julian´s apartment to be the best value place I have stayed. It is a spacious and nicely decorated apartment with an excellent location; lots of restaurants nearby, easy access to La Candelaria and in one of the nicest, most tranquil residential areas in Bogota. Fernanda was a great host, leaving me to my own devices throughout my stay without bothering me at all and even gave me a lift to the airport at 6 oóclock in the morning when I left! Highly recommended.

  • El apartamento es práctico, en un barrio tranquilo (con muchos restaurantes) y desde el que se puede ir al centro histórico en un paseo de media hora. Buena relación calidad precio. Ningún problema importante con los dueños. Fernanda nos ayudó a resolver algunos problemas menores con wi-fi.

    Response from Julian & Fernanda:

    Thanks, Cindy! We're glad you enjoyed you enjoyed your time at the apartment.

  • Great little apartment. Exactly what you see in the photos. And the location couldn't be better. Really, it's just one block above all of the main restaurants in La Macarena.

  • Nuestra estancia en el apartamento de Julian y Fernanda fue muy agradable. Si pasas unos días en Bogotá te recomiendo por precio, ubicación y comodidad este apartamento. La zona es muy tranquila y céntrica (se duerme muy bien, apenas hay ruido), y el lugar cuenta con todo lo necesario para cocinar y estar a gusto dos personas. Además, han sido muy amables y nos han facilitado todo :)

Hey globetrotters! This is kind of a joint profile for my sister Fernanda and I. We're both well-traveled and love meeting new people and can't wait to be your hosts. We''re both from Bogota, but lived in Vancouver for a good part of our lives. Currently I'm graduate school studying Media Management in New York, and Fernanda teaches English as a second language in Bogota, and lives with her husband and her two adorable children, Camilo and Carlos David. We are currently offering our apartment in La Macarena, and while I do a lot of the airbnb account management, Fernanda takes care of our hosts on-site. Some of our favorite things include eating delicious Indian food, playing tennis, going to gallery openings, and of course, traveling!
