I stayed at this hotel for a wedding I was attending in Feb 214 in Cartagena and the hotel was incredible! The decor was impeccable, the restaurant / breakfast was fabulous and the staff were amazing. The hotel is a very good location to restaurants / bars / shopping and the staff are very helpful for anything you may need.... More

I booked El Marques because from the photos it looked like just the type of boutique hotel that I typically enjoy. I've stayed in a similar boutique hotel in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and wanted a similar experience for my friend and I. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the staff with a refreshing mint lemonade.... More

My partner & I really enjoyed El Marques. We loved the old style house furnished with modern lounge like furniture, the beautiful tropical garden & lounge music. The atmosphere was perfect for such a relaxed city like Cartagena. We also enjoyed lounging around the pool after a hot days exploration around the city. The pool side bed is a very... More

I booked the hotel for me and a group of friends after my wedding in Bogota. The hotel exceeded all my expectations. The service was absolutely amazing! Small hotel 8 rooms with a beautiful courtyard and a nice size pool. The staff was extremely nice and everyone in my group of 8 could not be happier with the hotel selection!... More

How cool this place is. The pictures do not do it justice. A perfect blend of old Cartagena history with a modern design aesthetic. Amazing food (probably the best we had in the entire week we were in Colombia). Amazing service--the entire staff from front desk to bartender to maids were so kind and so helpful. We were in room...

We stayed for 3 nights, as a frequent traveler I could say the hotel is way overpriced, the air conditioning system of the room just lower the temperature a couple degrees, the room bar is not replenished everyday, the Internet works only sometimes. It has been a strike and the concierge didn't have the slightest idea that the main road... More

I've been on the hunt for a boutique hotel that will lure me away from the Santa Clara...and i think i've found it... This is an utterly charming hotel which will enchant you. Just 8 rooms in total so very personalised service and quiet. Rooms are large, modern and simply decorated, kingsize beds, monsoon shower...but it is the setting -... More

A jewel of a city, a jewel of a hotel! I find it absolutely insane that El Marques is not near the top of the top of ratings. Our stay there was dreamy. Granted, we had the junior suite in the front and sort of "annexed" the reading room next door as our own, so we felt like royalty, basking... More
