A charming historic mansion turned 10-room hotel in the heart of Cartagena’s Walled City

The Lowdown

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.

Wonderful hotel and location

Highly recommend this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful and you couldn't get a better location. The room was a bit dark, but the pool area was perfect for hanging out and again, the staff was great.

Convenient location. Quiet, nice hotel.

It is a nice hotel at a quite location in the walled city.Staff is friendly. The courtyard has a swimming pool and is quite relaxing to sit .My room is on the first floor with no windows so it is a bit dark. There are not many electrical outlets. Overall we like it and would comeback.

Fantastic place and a gem

Looking for a hotel in Cartagena, came across Casa del Arzobispado and booked it not expecting much. Was fantastic. Great location, the coffee shop is great for drinks and meal if needed. The breakfast upstairs was perfect. The room was very comfortable, the pool so relaxing and the massage services were icing on the cake.

Excelent, one of the best experiences in Colombia!
