What We Love
- The vertical garden made out of more than 3,000 local plants
- The bejeweled chef’s jacket — Tcherassi’s take on chef’s whites — hanging in the open-air Gran Salon like a work of art
What To Know
- Rooms facing the street can get noisy
- The rooftop pool is small; stake out a spot in the water before the crowds hit
- The on-site Vera restaurant is excellent, but it’s Italian. If you’re craving local flavors, ask staff for nearby suggestions
- Free WiFi
- Room Service
Colonial mansion–turned–boutique hotel, fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi’s eponymous hotel is a showcase of her signature colorful and feminine style. Thumping music and a giant portrait of the designer in the lobby make a dramatic first impression, but like so many of the city’s colonial homes, the central courtyard is the heart of the action. Here, Tcherassi’s introduced her own spin: a giant, living wall of more than 3,000 plants above the pool.
Bed & Bath
Off the light-flooded hallways, each of the seven guestrooms is individually decorated and named after a fabric used in Tcherassi’s fashion collections. Considered design touches range from whimsical “torn” fabric bedspreads to feathery pendant lamps, and most have balconies and soaring ceilings. Bathrooms, like bedrooms, favor an open-plan layout and all are individually designed — expect an immense rain shower set against an original 250-year-old stone wall in one room, and a deep soaking tub beside a picture window in another.
Aquabar is a seductive spot to grab an evening cocktail before heading down to the hotel’s phenomenal restaurant, Vera. Overseen by chef Andrés Hoyos, the restaurant occupies much of the open-air Gran Salon and serves a menu of fresh, coastal Italian dishes. Sybarites can lounge out in the hotel’s sweet, two-room spa, or find a different sort of relaxation on the hotel’s roof deck, with daybeds and panoramic views of the city and Caribbean Sea.
How to Get There
No words to describe the outstanding service provided by its staff. They make you feel at home from the first moment you walk in. The hotel is in a great location with easy access to historic sites, shops and restaurants. The brand ambassador did an amazing job coordinating and recommending the best restaurants and acitvities for us.
The hotel accommodations are great. Me and my family couldn't have made a better choice.
We had an enjoyable and wonderful stay at this hotel. The people are AMAZING they are kind, helpful and very nice. From the moment you check in until you check out every single person at the hotel treats in such an amazing way, they are exceptional. The food is well prepared, and presentation is fabulous. The rooftop pool is very nice and drinks and food outstanding. We have had always memorable times at Tcherassi. Highly recommended for your stay in Cartagena.
Just a perfect place to stay when you visit Cartagena, Columbia. The staff and the facility were five stars. The hotel was in a perfect location. The staff were friendly and could not do enough for you.
The hotel is really nice but they only have one restaurnat with very bad food and expesive in terms of its quality. The service is really bad, they dont care about you at all.
I travel with my family for a wedding and one day we found a note saying that teh inly 2 amenities inthe place were to be closed so there was no restaurant, bar or pool service so thye "invite you" to go somewhere else
Great location and staff was amazing. Delicious breakfast and the mattress was the best I have tried in hotels
