Hotel Charleston is one of those ever-so-rare, effortlessly contemporary hotels in Bogota. The lobby’s square of thin white sticks that grow from the ground seem as natural and light as the orchids that forever flit through your peripheral view. It almost doesn’t matter whether they’re intended to be an art fixture or some kind of innovative floor design. Out of 64 rooms, 11 provide all the glorious comforts of a Grand suite, which seems to cater to large groups; a grey, eight-person sofa sits alongside a glass dining table in the sleek, stream-lined living room. The bedroom is similarly spacious, but the bathroom really takes the crown; the centrepiece of this glass and marble complex is the largest shower conceivable-designed to fit at least eight people, and with four massage jets set at different levels. In other words, Hotel Charleston throws luxury in the face of practicality to create the most sought-after bathroom in Bogota. When you finally bring yourself to leave your room, the sophisticated eatery downstairs is lively with animated conversation until the bar takes over.
