About this listing

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.

This small but well-equipped studio is located in a nice and centrally-situated area; ideal when you are in Bogota for work and on the move the whole day. Fernanda was very helpful in solving some slight inconveniences; and so was Ana the janitor. Good price-quality rate. I would go there again.
A great place to stay. Fernanda and Julian were informative pre-arrival and helpful with questions that arose during my stay. The apartment is clean and spacious, with a central location. Neighborhood has lots of local cafes and restaurants within an easy walking distance and is centrally located, though some nearby streets can be a bit sketchy at night. Super / door(wo)man is very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this place and would stay here again if I visit Bogotá in the future. Thank you! Jeff
Cute and clean apartment in a nice local neighborhood. There are lots of good restaurants around, and there is a Transmilenio stop a few streets away. Julian and Fernanda were very welcoming and accessible, and there is a building manager on-site who was also very nice and helpful. Wifi worked well. Enjoyed my stay!
El departamento es cómodo y tiene buena ubicación.
No tuvimos inconvenientes, pero tampoco trato directo con el propietario ya que nos recibió la encargada del edificio.
Tiene buen equipamiento pero hay cosas que necesitan mantenimiento (sillas descoladas, pérdidas en el lavatorio)
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".

About the Host, Julian & Fernanda
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!
