I got married in January 2016 in El Marques Hotel Boutique and it was best experience I have ever had. I traveled with my fiance to Cartagena in December 2015 to find locations for our wedding. After checking every single place we fell in love with this hotel for many reasons: it has a great location (the magical the old... More

We stayed here for two nights, hoping to splurge at the beginning of our trip because it was the weekend. Highly recommend dining in the courtyard or the wine cellar when it gets to be too hot (it has air conditioning) because the food is fantastic and the ambiance and music is perfect. You can tell this is an establishment... More

I stayed here for 4 days and really enjoyed it. The hotel is an old mansion with a lot of character and in a perfect location. My room was very nice and had very high ceilings with the super comfortable bed and very high-quality and comfortable sheets. I would say this is more a 4 star hotel in terms of... More

My friend and I stayed here for about a week In March. Our room was great and big enough for us both. I loved the way the hotel is decorated and loved to sit in the large room upstairs with the white couches and beautiful drapes that would sway in the wind. (also the best spot for wifi). The breakfast... More

Everything at this hotel is spectacular. Accommodations were lovely, service extrodinary, food delicious! The location of the hotel inside old Cartegena is perfect for walking to the best sights, shopping, and dining. Cannot wait to return!

I think I would prefer to give this hotel a 3.5 stars over 4 stars but I can't. It's a beautiful place but there are many missing details which take away from how great this place can be. We stayed here just a few days ago for three nights. It's located in a great location in the walled city. It's... More

Thank you very much for your comment. We are so pleased you liked our hotel and had a great experience. Although, We would like to clarify some things about you uncomfortable details. We count with soundproof doors which need to be closed and locked, outside noise is reduced 100%. Pool is small as we are a boutique hotel with only... More

It was a pleasure staying here. The beds were especially comfortable after roughing it in Tayorona park for a few days. The property is beautiful, an old house remodeled but kept the essence of the past and blended it in to a great fusion of today. The courtyard and restaurant area is nice to spend time at, it's open and... More

The hotel is situated near plaza santo domingo, with restaurants and stores. Is a very old house from the colonization period, the renovation keeped the original characteristics of the house, wich we liked a lot since Cartagena is an historical city. The staff were very nice. We didnt love the breakfast service. You have to order, the waiter was confusing... More

This hotel lived up to expectation. In a charming, romantic old mansion, the rooms are large with very high ceilings. Excellent service. There is a swimming pool which is a welcome relief after a hot few hours exploring Cartagena. Location is perfect, just steps away from many of the best historic sights. Highly recommended.
