We have nothing but amazing things to say about our 5 night stay for our wedding weekend (my parents stayed 8 nights and also loved every single thing!). Ambiance: the colonial mansion is the epitome of old world elegance in all its former glory. The owners/management did an amazing job of keeping the history alive while adding modern elements. Ultimately,...

We were booked at the Epica House and they directed us to this hotel due to over booking. And I am SO glad that happened. This hotel is WOW ! It is so beautiful and in the heart of the walled city, but an oasis of quiet. The room we had was huge, beautiful, and comfortable. And the bathroom is...

It is always so nice to get off the street and away from vendors here in Cartagena and to escape into a beautifully large open to the sky garden. We chose to come here to have some wine and sit and look at the beautiful foliage in a very private pristine area.

This a restaurant with a very nice patio and atmosphere located by the Plaza Santo Domingo. The service was good overall. I found the food to be OVER price for the quality of food they serve. The "Pesca del día" is a fish, little over cooked, served with a salty risotto. The "fine sandwich" is in reality two thin crackers...

Lukewarm shower water - never hot. Intermittent internet wifi, connected but not provisioned for workable level of service. Losing power frequently overnight turns air-conditioning off, so you wake up in a pool of your own sweat. And above all, the "Dracula" turn-down night maid, never showing-up before 9 1/2 PM, unlocking and opening the room door suddenly with her master...

We stayed here in November/December 2015. El Marques is a true gem! The hotel is a gorgeous colonial house situated centrally in the old town so everything was within walking distance. Decor is super easy elegance,it feels airy and unpretentious. Our room was big and spacious and it included a good variety of a breakfast. We had breakfasts at their...

We choose El Marques Hotel Boutique for a one week stay because of it's central location, it's ambiente and it's good reviews and were not disappointed. Having been in Cartagena before we knew that the Plaza Santo Domingo nearby is like the heart of the old city and the only place where you can sit in a Plaza pretty much...

Beautiful hotel. The rooms are super comfortable and the beds are a dream. This colonial house is magnificent and its decor is very luxurious. I had the opportunity to try the Nativa tasting menu at its restaurant Bohemia and it was out of this world. The chef explained all his dishes and blew me away. Definetly recommend the hotel and...

This hotel is beautiful and we were so excited when we arrived only to realize a neighborhood mung club blasts music until 1 am. If you aren't all about the night life and like to get sleep then this isn't a hotel I would recommend.

Hello Dear Guest. Thanks for taking the time to write. It is strange this situation because all our rooms are soundproof namely they have a system that does not allow outside noises are heard in the rooms. We are very interested in detail its case, you could leave us an email to contact you?

My wife and I stayed at the El Marques for two nights along with an entire wedding party - taking up all of the rooms. Our room was beautiful, the bath area was large, and the bed was very comfortable. The central courtyard was very peaceful and was transformed on the wedding day into a great place for dinner and...
