The Sofitel Legend Santa Clara. is probably the best hotel we stayed at. It is located inside the walled city. The architecture is just amazing; The building dates from 1621 The service is friendly, professional and extremely competent. The accommodations are complete, not lacking anything. It is of course very expensive but worth it.

This for me is by far the nicest hotel in Cartagena. It is very historic. It was built in the 1600s as a convent. The restaurants at the hotel are very good and the staff at the entire hotel are very nice and accommodating. It is convenient to everything in the old walled part of the city. Even if you... More

Arrived for our first ever trip to South America to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. This hotel was recommended by my brother who stayed there last year. The overall facility is something to behold: you'd be hard-pressed to want to stay somewhere else in Cartagena. That said the room we were initially given could not have been more basic. Definitely... More

I stayed here for two nights as part of my week in Cartagena and the experience was better than I had anticipated. We were confirmed for a superior room, but when we checked in they gave us a luxury room complete with butler service! The room was fantastic - recently renovated on the top floor, with vaulted ceilings and a... More

You feel like being transported back in time to the 16th century when you enter the hotel. Before arriving I started reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel "Of love and other demons" which basically takes place in the convent prior before being turned into the hotel. Reading the novel during my stay made the place even more interesting and magical. Not... More

We travel extensively, all over the world, and this is one of our favorite spots. The location in the old city of Cartagena is perfect, you step out of the door of the hotel and are immediately immersed in sights, sounds, and FOOD of Cartagena. The grounds of the hotel itself are wonderful, hands down the best pool scene in... More

The Sofitel Santa Clara in Cartagena is just great! Since you arrive, the hotel feels like you are in heaven, luxury combined with tradition. From outside the room we colud see Gabriel Garcia Marquez house! Excellent service, nice pool, delicious food. Rooms are nice, but could be better, a little bit larger for the price! You have to drink a... More

My wife and I went for a 2-day, one-night stay in Cartagena. I chose Santa Clara based on perfect experiences 15+ years earlier. We booked a luxury room. My expectation was met and exceeded from the moment we set foot at the hotel. The first and prevalent impression is the service and friendly attitude of all the staff. Without exception,... More
