Built in the 17th century and later the home of Antonio José de Ayos, a hero of Colombia’s war of independence, the 10-room boutique Casa del Arzobispado takes inspiration from the colonial era, filling its many nooks and crannies with religious art. The same Spanish Colonial style extends to the rooms and suites, which are well furnished with antique pieces as well as modern luxuries such as flat-screen TVs, rainfall showers and L’Occitane bath products. Spa services are available upon request, and daily breakfast is included. Go for a dip in the courtyard pool or catch a glimpse of the historic Cartagena de Indias (the Walled City) from second floor rooms or the rooftop terrace.
In the Area
While Cartagena’s historic vibe is certainly a big part of its charm, the city’s restaurants and shopping are decidedly 21st century. Prep for a night on the town with some local threads; hit Ketty Tinoco for whimsical pieces accented with feminine lace, or go for an edgier look (as well as bold printed purses) at Gabi Arenas. Then treat your taste buds to fruit-based cocktails and spot-on ceviche at La Perla, try Caribbean-influenced bites made with fresh-caught seafood at Donjuán, and indulge in a Mediterranean feast with a side of local artwork at FM Restaurante.
How to Get There
Beautiful Hotel, perfect located. Staff was super nice ando helpfull. Room was big and very well set. amennities were of great quality. Perfect pool, very private and great service at the pool. Hotel located next to
The best streets in cartagena, also to the best stores.
I've been to Cartagena several times and without a doubt this is the best experience. First, the Hotel is beautiful, The centuries old architecture is very well maintained and dripping with history. The staff couldn't be friendlier. Jaime was awesome at check in and the entire staff was just as amazing. The place is quiet and my sleep quality was awesome which isn't always the case in Cartagena which can be very loud in some places. The free breakfast was delicious and the bartenders were experts in mixology. If you like coffee have them make you a syphon, truly outstanding. I'll never stay anywhere else when I'm in Cartagena.
Great hotel, such a good location within the walled city. The staff were really helpful and helped arrange trips to the Rosario islands. Rooms were clean and had the best shower ever! Breakfast was good.
