The best week of the year with the BLACK HOURS


The end of November has come and with it two words that have revolutionized shopping around the world: BLACK FRIDAY. Without a doubt, the model of society in which we live has made us create a certain addiction to this day, (because initially it was just one day of discounts), and to take full advantage of the discounts before the Christmas season, but at BYHOURS we wanted to turn it around and make it your best BLACK HOURS of the year! But first we’re going to tell you a little bit of the history of this phenomenon.

Just like Halloween, this is another American “tradition” that we’ve brought to our countries, and although we’ve only been celebrating it for a few years, – in Spain it began in 2012 -, even if
we believe that this will be a lifelong habit. It originated in order to make Christmas shopping more bearable for the American population, so that they could save and in nature buy more things at a lower price.

In Latin America it’s not officially celebrated under the name of ‘BLACK FRIDAY’, but it’s not left behind. For example, in Mexico they have their own version, which they call ‘El Buen Fin’. The Mexicans promoted this event in 2011, with the aim of satisfying the consumption needs of the population and not as an event related to Christmas shopping.

BLACK HOURS: discounts for your microholidays

The restrictions in which the vast majority of the world’s citizens live mean that we cannot enjoy travel and leisure as we used to. But who said that it’s not possible to enjoy in one’s own city? The BYHOURS microholidays, of which we have already told you so much, are the success of these months, in which the limitations are great. There are many users who have already been able to experience a microstay in one of the city’s top hotels. A local leisure activity that we didn’t consider before, because we thought that ‘hotels are only for tourists’.

So, in BYHOURS we’ve prepared the BLACK HOURS to make it even easier to enjoy as many times as you want some well-deserved microholidays. How? From 25th to 30th November, every day you’ll have discounts depending on the pack of 3, 6 or 24 hours you choose. BLACK HOURS surprises for everyone, with more than 3.500 hotels around the world. So that wherever you are, you can book your microstay at the best price.

Every day we will announce on our social networks the discounts. But if you want to find out before anyone else, subscribe to our newsletter on the BYHOURS website and you will be the first to book. Availability is running out and so are the BLACK HOURS!

In addition, it is a country with a lot of variety where you can find from incredible natural landscapes, colonial towns and cities and beautiful historical centers of its big cities like Bogotá and Medellín.

Next, at BYHOURS we want to recommend you what for us are the best 5 cities in Colombia to visit and where you can also enjoy a few hours in the best hotels in town.


It is the second most important city in Colombia, and in recent years has established itself as one of the best getaway destinations nationwide. The city of Medellin is surrounded by hills that you can climb with the metrocable and enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the entire city. As a recommendation, we suggest you visit the Comuna 13 either on your own or with a free tour with which you can also learn about its history.

And if you need a break, we have a wide range of hotels, such as the Rosales Plaza Hotel, located in the Rosales neighborhood, where you can book your 3, 6 or 24 hour microstay.


Located at 2600 meters above sea level, it is the largest and most important city in Colombia. In Bogotá there are many things to do, but if we had to recommend something, we suggest visiting the central neighborhoods of La Macarena and La Candelaria where you can see the famous bullring La Santamaria, the National Museum and a wide range of bars and restaurants where you can try the local cuisine.

And if you need a break, we have a wide range of hotels, such as the Rosales Plaza Hotel, located in the Rosales neighborhood, where you can book your 3, 6 or 24 hour microstay.


It is the most touristic city of Colombia, due to its impressive beaches and its surrounding islands like Rosario Island, so it is a perfect destination to rest. If you don’t have that much time, we propose you to visit its historical center and what is called the “Old City”, a walled city full of colonial buildings founded in 1533.

Santa Marta

It has the particularity of being the oldest city in Colombia, founded in 1525. As a major attraction, you can find the Tayrona National Natural Park, a combination of jungle, beach and sea, which you can tour and discover the indigenous culture of the region.


It is considered the adventure destination par excellence in Colombia, since it is located near San Gil, where you can enjoy extreme sports such as kayaking, rafting, paragliding, etc. If adrenaline is not your thing, the city of Bucaramanga is also known as the ”city of parks” for its more than 220 parks where you can take a pleasant walk.

These would be our recommendations, varied but beautiful destinations and each with its own charm. And remember that whenever you need to rest for a few hours, you can do it in any of our hotels.

BYHOURS has made a selection of our TOP hotels with the best terraces and privileged views of the cities, so that you don’t have to do more than choose a hotel and make a reservation. Have a look and take your partner, friends or family to spend a few hours in a hotel.
