We arrived after midnight from an international flight, were greeted by the overnight staff and escorted to our room. It was a nice welcome. As an adult son/mother combo, we had asked for two beds for two nights. It was a queen bed and twin combination; the twin was not very comfortable but adequate. The room was pretty standard with...

What a fabulous experience staying at the Casa La Fe hotel in Cartagena, Columbia. This hotel has the most wonderful staff who are very professional, very helpful and very courteous. The hotel is very unique in that it is not a large chain and it fits in perfectly with the atmosphere of Cartagena.

Casa La Fe was a great hotel! Very cute courtyard and rooftop, and clean and well-decorated rooms. The breakfast each morning was amazing, and the staff was friendly and very very helpful with suggestions. Great location right on the square--try to get a room with a balcony! Very walkable to all of the sights in Old Cartagena and Getsemani--I would... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Casa La Fe is ideally located on Plaza Fernandez de Madrid in the heart of the city, offering a calm and relaxed atmosphere but with the convenience of the town's antiquities, restaurants and entertainments on the doorstep. The building dates from the Republican era and was restored to its former elegance by the current owners in 2005. The majority of our rooms are arranged around a central courtyard and garden where we serve breakfast and unlimited fresh coffee. We also have a number of bedrooms with private balconies facing a leafy park, which is unique in the city centre. A rooftop pool, terrace and mirador offers panoramic views with breeze and shade to escape the heat and bustle of the town. Our Angel bar on the terrace is open daily until 10:00 pm. The quality of our client service is renowned, with many reports in Trip Advisor and we are recommended in the NYT, London Times Group newspapers and Lonely Planet. ... more   less
