Perfect place to stop for a night between Cartagena and parque tayrona. The helpfulness of the staff was unparalleled, especially Luis and Jordy, and we were extremely satisfied with the hotel room's security, convenience, and amenities. If you would like to glean home decorating tips, this is the place to come: the throw pillows had hues similar to those of...

Mid-way through a 3 month trip we stayed in this hotel. It was the nicest place we stayed throughout the trip and was one of the nicest hotel stays I've had, even though it was much cheaper than most hotels I've stayed in. It wasn't flashy but had really lovely rooms, the service was absolutely fabulous. The breakfast was really...

What a charming and beautiful hotel. It is close to fabulous restaurants and a short drive from Tayrona National Park. I highly recommend choosing this hotel if you only want to do a day trip to Tayrona. The front desk staff were so help and fluent in English. Can't recommend enough. Also get their fried arepas at the included breakfast!...

Glad we decided on a suite as the rooftop plunge pool, chaise lounges and seating area with view of the sea were delightful. Good variety for breakfast and nice to try local dishes: arepas with fried egg one morning, pureed plantains the next. Long breakfast hours with early start allowed us to eat before an early departure. Server was a...

What every boutique hotel should be. Wonderful room, quiet setting and a great staff. We stayed in a suite, which has own private rooftop mini pool and lounge deck. Suite was beautifully appointed. From checkin through checkout the staff was genuinely interested in the guests comfort, and incredibly enough, in any ideas we had to make the place better. Keep...

A nice boutique hotel in the centre of town, just a couple of steps from the Plaza de los Novios. The decor is very well taken care of and the rooms are beautiful (somewhat small though) and the staff are very nice. The breakfast could be improved though, the coffee is really bad and the dishes were a bit tasteless....

Beautiful hotel and central location. The staff was kind and friendly and filled our requests. Would definitively recommend it. We were able to walk to Parque de los novios which had a lot of very nice dinning options.

This is a very nice, quaint, boutique hotel, in a great location near Parque de Los Novios. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included, with 4 different choices. The entire property is very well maintained and clean. The rooftop pool on the 2nd level is small but very refreshing, with lots of sun, or shady areas...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa de Isabella pays homage to the charm and history of Santa Marta's colonial era while ushering in a future rich in culture and beauty. Founded in 1525, Santa Marta is Colombia's oldest city. Its natural port provided a refuge from long journeys on Spanish galleons, and its position on the north coast allowed explorers to use it as a base camp for trips to the interior. Casa de Isabella sits in the Centro Historico, the Old City of Santa Marta. This area, first developed after the Manzanares river receded in 1850, holds buildings that reflect traditional Mudejar architecture. The building's original owners inhabited the house for four generations and contributed significantly to the city's growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. In renovating the hotel for the modern era, we consistently chose classic style, maintaining the original integrity of the building and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guests feel the simplicity of Santa Marta's natural charm while enjoying modern comforts. From the greenery of the courtyard to the intimacy of a personal rooftop pool, Casa de Isabella fuses the tranquility of Colombian culture with top quality hotel conveniences. With lighting fast Wi-Fi, complimentary I-Pads, and Apple TV, as well as restored furniture and handmade adornments, this hotel stays anchored in tradition while looking ahead toward a bright future. We have proudly renovated the most beautiful boutique hotel in the Colombian Caribbean. ... more   less
