This little gem was the nicest place I have stayed in so far in my 2 weeks in Colombia. The welcome at Reception was great, as was the complimentary drink. Someone was available to help one bring bags to the room if needed. I had room 10 which was lovely. Someone else in my group had room 8 which wasn't...

Had a great stay at Casa Mara. Although our room was small and didn't have a window, the courtyard space made up for it. The staff, especially Laura was very friendly and helped us with all our needs (Thanks Laura!). Location is great as its close to restaurants & nightlife, and not overly touristy.

Great welcoming view - with its sparking white decor of its terrraced rooms surrounding a small central courtyard and small blue swimming pool with a tiled entrance. Rooms well appointed with a good bathroom with both hot / cold water for the shower. Incredibly hard and uncomfortable pillows on the bed. Good location as 10 minute walk to the colonial...

Casa Mara was a very quiet and relaxing place in the bustling Getsemani. Great pool to cool down. The matress was the best i slept on my whole trip. This is no party hostel and also not the most likely place to meet other travellers, but sometimes you just don't want that. Breakfast is basic, but as in everywhere in...

Although the hotel and the rooms area bit old fashioned it has a great cosy feel to it and the smal pool is great for cooling off after a day of wandering around in the city. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast choices are good (six different combinations to choose from) The only point for improvement...

This hotel is located in a nice location in between the old city and the san felipe castle. Many restaurants and bars nearby. The swimming pool is nice to cool off. Building itself has a colonial atmosphere. Breakfast is not included, but can be bought separately or better visit a bar/restaurant nearby. Wifi quality is poor in the rooms, and...

We moved to Casa Mara after spending a nice few nights at one of their other properties, Hotel Villa Colonial. The other hotel was also nice, but we had a really horrible experience there one night due to some very loud neighbors and decided to change locations the next day. If I had known how lovely Casa Mara was, I...

I picked this hotel from pictures because I loved the blue and white, and it was as pretty in person as in the pictures. The reception was very kind and helpful. My room was nice enough, but if they would turn the bed 90 degrees to the side instead of in the center of the room, there would be more...
