Good central location - friendly staff - good buffet breakfast in an attractive setting - lovely to have coffee available during the day - quiet and relaxing - comfortable pillows on the bed - sometimes it was like having your own private bar by the rooftop poolside. Good value for money

This was a beautiful hotel right in the heart of the colonial centre of Cartagena. We had a room with balcony and loft, which was the perfect size for us and our 2 teens. The room was clean, comfortable and had its own AC -- what a relief after walking around the city during the day. It is across from... More

We received Rooms 101 and 102, which are on the first floor, near the breakfast area. We heard that the street noise was worse for people on the upper floors. We had to contend with workers--around midnight one night, then starting shortly after 5 AM for breakfast, with breakfast guests starting around 7 AM. Rooms 101 and 102 are also... More

With all respect, we must say that your terrible experience is the result of a bad room choice.

Great stay at Casa La Fe! The staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is great. The building is beautiful and the swimming pool a perfect addition! Rooms were a bit dark as the windows look out to the corridor and you need the blinds always down, but overall a great stay.

Our stay at Casa La Fey was spectacular! The room was nice and cold and we had a great view of the street and activities in the square in front of us. The beds were comfortable and the free breakfast was very good and typical for a colombian breakfast with eggs that are also scrambled, fried or soft. The room... More

Casa La Fe is a great hotel-great location, charming and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff. The hotel looks out onto the plaza in which much of "Love in the Time of Cholera" takes place. I have already recommended it to family and friends, and hope to return myself.

I would't call it luxury,on the other hand super nice people, very clean, nice bed and bathroom, but no elevators, lots of stairs and even a big step to come out of the bathroom. The location is great with a nice little balcony to enjoy the beautiful view of a small and very lively park and the parade of carriages... More

Many thanks for your comments about your stay in Casa La Fe. We should start saying that Luxury hotels in Cartagena has al least double our price.

The staff is very helpful, the breakfast eggs cooked to order, the fruit and coffee delicious. The a/c works very well and the bed and pillows also comfortable. Be aware the very small rooms are behind the building which is built around a small courtyard so there is no natural light - the sole window receives light from the unroofed... More

Thanks for your review. Unfortunately your stay coincided with 4 days of very overcast skies and threatening rainstorms so with our blinds unrolled all the rooms were a little gloomy. The bedroom you stayed in measures 4.5m x 4.0m so I would argue that this is hardly a 'tiny' room. If you return to Cartagena I hope you will see... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. I was a single guest and I felt safe, everyone is very helpful and the front desk receptionist all speak English. They got a bar at the top with a pool. Really nice and colonial feeling the area at at night is also great. Highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Casa La Fe is ideally located on Plaza Fernandez de Madrid in the heart of the city, offering a calm and relaxed atmosphere but with the convenience of the town's antiquities, restaurants and entertainments on the doorstep. The building dates from the Republican era and was restored to its former elegance by the current owners in 2005. The majority of our rooms are arranged around a central courtyard and garden where we serve breakfast and unlimited fresh coffee. We also have a number of bedrooms with private balconies facing a leafy park, which is unique in the city centre. A rooftop pool, terrace and mirador offers panoramic views with breeze and shade to escape the heat and bustle of the town. Our Angel bar on the terrace is open daily until 10:00 pm. The quality of our client service is renowned, with many reports in Trip Advisor and we are recommended in the NYT, London Times Group newspapers and Lonely Planet. ... more   less
