While the hotel is not in the historic city center, the location turned out to be great. Getsemani is an edgier neighborhood with many new restaurants and bars. And the walk to the old town is just 5-10 minutes, so very manageable. The hotel itself seemed to be newly renovated and the room was very comfortable. We were disappointed that... More

Great location, short walk to the clock tower. Felt safe all the time. Great views from the pool on the roof. Just wish they wouldn't allow smokers to ruin your meal at the pool. Great service from big personality Carlos. Pity about the rest of the staff, aside from the front desk, no-one else spoke English and they struggled to... More

We got to this hotel in hope to rest with our 3 months old baby. There are works on the ground or 1st floor in the dining room. So first night was a catastrophy cause they gave us a room on 2nd floor and works start early. The second night was better, they changed our room. We were cared for... More

We really enjoyed Allure Chocolat. When we booked, we did not realize it was in Getsemani, right outside of the walled city, but the location was fine. It's only about a five minute walk and it's right next to the convention center, which meant it felt very safe and was convenient when we needed a landmark to find it at... More

I highly recommend the Allure Chocolat Hotel. Beautiful, impeccable, awesome, perfect location and marvelous and terrific staff. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the staff. Loved the chocolates we received every day, the pillow menu and all the perks.

I spent six days at the hotel and felt that I was among my friends thanks to very friendly hotel staff. They are willing to do anything to please the customer. I wanted two power adapters but they had only one. Since I have already received one, I thought I should not bother them too much. However, I reminded about... More

This is a newly renovated hotel with the right location in Cartagena. I initially thought it would be better to stay inside the walls of this city - wrong idea! Location of Allure Chocolat is definitely much better. The rooftop pool of Allure Chocolat is AMAZING with a great view to the sea. You simply can't resist and it's so... More

We knew we would be staying for a few days in cartagena in August and we had a few requirements when looking for a hotel: a pool for the hot afternoon, English speaking staff, quiet, and close enough to the walled city to safely visit it day or night but not within the walls so we wouldn't have to pay...

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. The rooms are a great size, super clean, and have new finishes. The rooftop pool/lounge area is amazing with awesome views, and the breakfast area is so nice to wake up to. It's in a perect location. By being just outside the old town's walls, it doesnt have any of the noise... More

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
