Great hotel! Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Great location. Across the street from the water; rooftop pool. Two separate roof decks with panoramic views of the city. Easy to walk to the walled city or explore other areas. Highly recommend.

A very good modern hotel in Cartagena, just a few minutes walk from the old city. The rooms are a bit small but have everything you need. The service is cordial and professional (special recognition to the bellman Antonio). The breakfast is very tasty. We stayed in an inner room as we preferred quiet over a view. The location in...

A true boutique hotel with excellent staff, cosy and modern space, with a refreshing small swimming pool with a great view. Rooms were very comfortable, nice and cool, bed to sleep for ages and very quiet despite the fact that the hotel was full. Breakfast was ok, limited choices, served by waiters. Still tasty. Overall a great experience.

A place is just a place unless it has wonderfull staff. The people on the front desk did a great job recomending what to do in the city and helping us get from point A to point B.

Loved everything about our two night stay at the Allure Chocolat. The staff was beyond helpful and friendly. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The rain shower is amazing!

Ms. Paola Luna immediately welcomed my partner and I upon arrival. Her attention to detail and customer service was stellar. The staff and bartender, Engler were also amazing. We plan on returning and will be staying here again. Gracias a Paola y Engler para su amistad y servicio. Un placer!!

I stayed here with my wife and our two daughters in July 2016! The moment we walked in until we checked out, the staff was extremely friendly and very professional. Perfect location!! It is only 3-5 minutes walk from the old city. We loved the pool, room and service. Will stay here again when we are in Cartagena. No brainer.

Hotel staff was great . Food was very good. Rooms need to be up dated, no wash rags (face clothes) to bath with. So pack one if you want one. Pool near lobby needs to be up dated missing tiles on bottom of pool. Close to city wall and beaches. Would stay again.
