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
Wonderful accommodations in the heart of Cartagena! Staff at Hotel Casa del Arzobispado were helpful, friendly and kind. Great experience in the room. Accommodations were clean and quiet throughout our stay. Highly recommend!!
Loved all of it — great oasis in the middle of the Old City. The hustle of the city is right outside the door, yet you feel a world away inside. Spaces and room were dramatic and impressive and felt like we were really immersed in the charm and history of the city. We loved taking advantage of the pool every day and the breakfast was an incredible value. Felt very safe and the staff was also incredibly nice and helpful. The adjacent coffee shop was also a daily ritual with great food as well. Great gem in the city, one of our favorite hotels.
The family stayed here for my son'r Wedding and had a really lovely time. The welcome, the room, the service and the whole ambience were first rate. The location was perfect in the old town close to the wedding venue plus lots of bars and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.
Excellent small hotel, located in the center of the old city. Very clean and quiet. Wonderful, helpful staff. Clean room. Excellent price! Highly recommend for everyone. Walking distance to everything in the old city.
Small boutique hotel. No children unless you book the entire 10 rooms, which we did. The staff was great! Very good with the toddler we had in tow. Rooms are nice. Plenty of hot water. Great breakfast! Our 5 nights there were wonderful.
