This hotel could be one of the best in the city. But it isn't. The setting in an old colonial house in a great location in Cartagena should be priceless, but it's not. I recently stayed with a friend for 5 nights and we were not pleased. This is a very small hotel with only 9 rooms (which is a...

This lovely hotel is spectacular in so many ways. The 17th century Colonial-style building is filled with that Old Cartagena historic charm. It has a lovely patio with swimming pool and a very special wine room. (try to have dinner there). Each guest room is unique: elegant, comfortable and with a great bathroom (spacious, clean and modern). The courtyard is...

Another long over due review. We stayed here 3 nights back in January. As soon as you enter through the un-assuing front door, you're transported into a very special place. The entire hotel is just so well done, and beautiful. Exactly what you want when you're on holiday. The outdoor courtyard is beautiful, the rooms are great and the pool...

My wife and I spent 3 nights here mid-week in early March. It blew us away! We had the place to ourselves and felt spoilt by the staff. The pool gets great direct sun until around 3:30pm, allowing for great, lazy morning tanning (always accompanied by ice cold fresh fruit)! Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the unique restaurant are superb...

Stayed here on my second visit to Cartagena and I won't stay anywhere else for my future trips. Gorgeous hotel, delicious food and very attentive/helpful staff. The hotel is small and intimate and feels special. Perfect location right off of Plaza Santo Domingo. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed at El Marques for four nights and loved every minute. The hotel staff was helpful, the restaurant - Bohemia - served a tasty breakfast each morning and the rooms were plenty big enough and had good AC. The pool area is a tranquil, quiet spot to relax and we both had massages in the Petite Spa. Overall the...

As I left here, the staff were just setting up for a wedding, & it is the perfect place to hold one. Small enough to feel like a home, beautiful enough for stunning photos & with the most helpful staff you could meet. Plus a back history of 1960s famous hedonists that stayed there. What a way to finish a...
