To begin we booked a car transport from the airport and while their website says it will cost $40,000COP we were charged $50,000COP by the driver. This should have been our first clue of things to come. Second, the moment you walk in the door your senses are overwhelmed by a STRONG MUSTY ODOR...some Lysol could be used. Third, the... More

Dear Sir, thank you for your comments, as I think since you arrive you realize this is not the style of hotel you were looking for. An international brand new hotel in the new zone may have been better. our staff and Daniela who speak very well english have clarified and myself by mail, many points of view different for... More

We stayed one night in this hotel and it was wonderful. Lunch and breakfast on the patio by the rooftop pool surrounded by all manner of tropical plant life, it was just divine. The room was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the hotel itself couldn't be more authentic, and pretty. We wanted... More

I like very much the hotel concept. Occupies an old house of historical Cartagena. I loved the swimming pool on the roof as well as the small restaurant.A place where you can establish good relations with the owner an employees.

I was there for three nights with my boyfriend From Europe. Unfortunately, we didn't have a great experience there.For instance, the towels we had were very smelly... Seemed like they didn't change the towels, I know because, the second day, I noticed a bad odor from the towels, so I left a mark in one of them and it was... More

I spent 6 near-perfect nights at Cartagena's LaPassion Boutique Hotel where I came to explore one of the most historic cities in the Western Hermisphere (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and to read "Love In the Time of Cholera", by Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez in its original setting. LaPassion enhanced my Latin American experience and provided the perfect,... More

We stayed for four nights at La Passion and stayed in three different rooms, all of which were great. One of the rooms had an outdoor shower which felt very special. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and interestingly decorated. The only negative thing about the rooms is that some have windows at the top of the door which allow... More

We stayed as a couple for two nights and highly recommend staying here! Of course the hotel itself is fabulous as many others have stated. The 24hr rooftop pool is awesome. The rooms are beautifully furnished, and the adjoining balconies overlook picturesque historic streets. The breakfast (included in your stay) is great too, but I'd say that the biggest differentiator... More

Great boutique hotel in a central location in the Old City. One of the best features of this hotel is the wonderful rooftop pool which is large enough to swim some laps, has comfortable cushions to lay out on, a full service bar, and excellent views of the city. My wife and I stayed in a suite on the second... More

After staying in La Passion for 6 days with my wife I can only laugh at some of the negative reviews I had seen here before... "...old furniture..." Ah! La Passion is a boutique hotel, and as such, it has as much of a personalised ambience as it has of a personalised service. If you don't like this type of... More
