Hotels in major cities tend to fill up on weekdays with business travelers and empty out on weekends, when you may be able to bargain up to a 50% discount. The reverse is true in small towns and in the countryside, where you'll pay up to 50% less during the week. One annoying thing about Colombian hotels is that many hotels won't take reservations during holiday weekends or festivals, meaning you'll have to arrive early to reserve a room. Hotels in city centers tend to be dodgier and lower quality than those in outer, more upscale neighborhoods, and many double as pay-by-the-hour establishments -- you may want to keep this in mind when making your reservation. Very Expensive lodging options start at COL$450,000; Expensive, from COL$300,000 to COL$449,000; Moderate from COL$200,000 to COL$299,000; and Inexpensive, under COL$200,000.
