Cartagena

Hotels in Cartagena

Colombian designer Silvia Tcherassi converted a Spanish-colonial mansion in the Old City of this walled colonial hot spot into a cool, white-on-white urban escape.

This small, chic, and stylish hotel let's guests sleep under frescoed ceilings, then wake to take their breakfast in the lush, columned courtyard. Opened in 2007, the stately upstairs rooms are furnished with 19th-century antiques that smell like beeswax.

Stay in this small, stylish, and private hotel complete with frescoed-ceilings. The rooms are filled with dark antiques and soft white bedding.

This 121-room luxury hotel, the Old City's first, is carved from the shell of a 17th-century convent in the quiet San Diego neighborhood.

In Cartagena’s cobblestoned Old Town, El Marqués Hotel still feels like an old colonial home.

Top among the city’s many new downtown properties is the 24-suite Anandá Hotel Boutique, a quiet retreat in a restored Spanish-colonial building with carved-wood balconies and three breezy roof terraces.

Travelers in the know are once again flocking to Cartagena for its architecture, beaches, and white-hot nightlife.
