I have been visiting Colombia on a regular basis for the last 2 years. And when I stay in Cartagena, my number one choice is always the Hotel Ananda. What sets it apart? I would have to say, it's the fantastic staff. They go out of their way to make me feel like a long awaited family member, finally home... More

I booked the Deluxe suite on the second floor and it was simply gorgeous... hardwood floor bathroom, sunken tub, rain shower head, dark wood furnishings.. comfortable king sized bed.. the toilettries are...

I planned a last minute trip to Colombia through a tour operator and therefore had little idea as to what to expect at Ananda. When I first arrived, I was taken aback by the beauty of the property. The decor was incredibly well done and charming. I found the front desk staff to be very good compared to other front... More

We stayed at this hotel twice and really enjoyed ourselves. First time, we were on the first floor overlooking the pool which was wonderful. Second time, we were on the ground floor which was a little noisy but not really an issue. The food was wonderful - breakfast and dinner. The pool was well used by the children. The welcome... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ananda for a week in June. The pictures posted online helped seal the deal for why we originally chose this boutique hotel. When you first arrive, the hotel is quite beautiful with a Romanesque feel. It is a very old building with exposed stone, grand doors and center courtyards. There is an open... More

If you have the money to choose between a boutique hotel and a 5* hotel don't doubt it and go for all the stars. I'm used to very good hotels and specially very good service. This boutique hotel is beautiful, I exchanged several emails with Iris from FD &. reservations and every need I had and requested was cover. Upon... More

Located on a quiet street in the Old City, the Ananda is a delightful oasis from the heat and activity of Cartagena. Two beautiful (albeit small) pools and a lovely rooftop seating area offer a special serenity and view of the city's rooftops and the sea. The rooms are a good size - although a bit dark. The included breakfast... More
