The Hotel de la Opera is set in the historical district of La Candelaria. The hotel has 42 suites decorated with fine Italian-made furniture, central heating, Wi-Fi, cable TV, safe deposit boxes and all the comforts of the best five star hotel tradition of Bogota.
Thanks to the varied architecture that spans three centuries of urban history, the suites of the Hotel de la Opera satisfy the most sophisticated travelers' tastes. The hotel's historic buildings are just in front of the San Carlos Palace and include 28 suites decorated in vibrant with color - bold yellows on the walls, graced with giant wood armoires and arched entrances, are spread around the courtyards of the colonial and Republican era.
15 other suites in Deco style are located in the top floor of the adjacent building of the late 1940's, the highest point in the neighborhood of La Candelaria. Decorated with bespoken designed Italian furniture this latest addition offers views of the Plaza de Bolivar the domes of the Cathedral and the mountain of Monserrate.

The Thermae Spa provides services including Turkish bath, sauna, massages and beauty room, gym, and heated pool, and innovative treatments focused on relaxation and physical wellbeing.
The design concept evokes typical elements from the 1930's and 1940's Bogotanian Art Deco and a palette of warm tones. The notable materials used include Caqueta cedar wood and Uraba Chocoano Theca, Bogotanian stone for floor finishes and tiling, suspended ceiling plaster work, glass doors and blue and green Spanish vitreous glass tiles in the pool, making a remarkable contemporary and cozy space.
This area is built on two levels, exclusively dedicated to comfort and rest. On the first floor there is a heated pool, Jacuzzi, cardiovascular exercise zone, showers and dressing rooms. The second floor houses sauna, Turkish baths and massage zone.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
