My fiancée and I plus another couple stayed here for 6 nights and couldn’t be happier with our choice. This is a very sexy and chic hotel with terrific staff, service and amenities. It’s within perfect proximity of everything, including 5 minute or less of a walk to the old city. There is something great to see in all directions.... More

Very cute boutique hotel in cartagena. Great service and their pool has an amazing view of the city. Not inside the main city but about two blocks away. The concierge and hotel employees are very helpful with tips about the city. They also give you chocolates twice a day!

We stayed 3 nights at the Allure Chocolat which completely changed our opinion of Cartagena. We had booked into a B&B which was not working out for us and we were not enjoying our time in the city. We decided to move and find a place with a swimming pool and more spacious room and we were lucky enough to... More

The Allure Chocolat has much going for it - simple elegance, (mostly) friendly concierges, and the best mojitos I've ever imbibed. Chilled wrapped washcloths and infused ice water welcome Allure guests before you even approach the desk. Upon checking in, the concierge (a cheery woman with glasses) saw on my passport that it was my birthday. She came around and... More

I got lazy with my TripAdvisor posting but had to write a review of this great property. It was the Arsenal Boutique Hotel when I stayed here in December 2013 ...but it's a great place. Super comfy bed, clean and modern public areas, and a terrific rooftop pool. Space was never crowded. Daily breakfast was included in their well appointed... More

We chose Allure Chocolat on a whim for our last few days in Cartagena mainly due to the great prices and excellent reviews and did not regret it for a second. The location is about 5 minutes walk from the old town, and very easy to find due to its proximity to the convention centre. The location also opened up... More

We spent a few days at this hotel and were very happy with our choice. While researching hotels in Cartagena we found that the ones inside the old wall were very expensive with average reviews so decided to stay at Allur Chocolate. We are so glad we did. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the wall and gate... More

My husband and I stayed here 4 nights in July. Location is great, less than 5 minute walk to main gate into the old walled city. Hotel is quiet despite being on a busy street. Rooftop pool and deck are lovely. Breakfast was served on the roof deck as restaurant was under renovation, lovely views of the old town. Room... More

Wonderful hotel, rooftop pool and friendly staff. 5 min from the Old Town Clocktower, and in the midst of the lively artistic Getsemani neighbourhood. The concierge, Christina, was a standout, friendly, helpful and always smiling. The pool was great, the rooms were lovely, and room 201 was quiet. The breakfast could be improved, but there's a coffee shop across the... More

Allure Chocolat is fantastic. You will be welcomed by friendly staff and their "international concierge" who will send you to the best restaurants in town. The hotel is located within 5 minutes of the clock tower, so you can't really be in a more convenient place. There are lots of restaurants and bars on the same street as the hotel... More
