For travelers with disabilities visiting Colombia, there are a number of wheelchair accessible hotel rooms in Bogota.

I have personally stayed in two different Bogota hotels, each of which had different accessibility benefits and drawbacks. I have included information and pictures of both hotels here, and encourage you to share details of others in the comments below. Please note that this is not a complete list of accessible hotels in Bogota, only those which I have stayed in and verified.

Grand Hyatt Bogota

The Grand Hyatt Bogota hotel is located off El Dorado Drive, a major thoroughfare, and within close proximity of downtown Bogotá and the international airport. It is directly across the street from the CAN TransMilenio station, a bus terminal offering wheelchair accessible connections to the city and airport.

My accessible guest room had two twin beds, but there are also accessible rooms with a king bed and one accessible suite at the property. The bed height measured 20-21 inches and there was no space under the bed to accommodate a lift.

The bathroom featured a toilet with grab bars, as well as a roll-in shower with grab bars and a wall-mounted shower seat that could be moved to different points in the shower.

Sheraton Bogota Hotel

The Sheraton Bogota Hotel is located along El Dorado Drive, about 2.5 kilometers closer to the airport (and farther from downtown Bogota) than the Grand Hyatt hotel. It is located across the street from the Avenida Rojas TransMilenio bus station, which provides connections to the airport and downtown. The hotel is one of the most affordable full-service hotels in Bogota, and offers a limited number of adapted rooms.

King size bed at the Sheraton Bogota Hotel.

My accessible hotel room had a king size bed that measured 27 inches from the floor to the top of the mattress. There was 4 inches of clear floor space underneath the bed to accommodate a patient transfer lift.

The bathroom featured a toilet with folding grab bars. The roll-in shower had a fairly traditional rectangular design with grab bars mounted on the wall and a handheld showerhead. The hotel did not have a shower chair, and was only able to provide a plastic lawn chair.

If you decide to stay at a hotel not listed here, be sure to ask questions about everything—door width, thresholds, shower/tub set-up, bed height, grab bars, shower chairs—to avoid a surprise when you arrive.
