#3 of 86 hotels in Santa Marta
Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Casa de Isabella pays homage to the charm and history of Santa Marta's colonial era while ushering in a future rich in culture and beauty. Founded in 1525, Santa Marta is Colombia's oldest city. Its natural port provided a refuge from long journeys on Spanish galleons, and its position on the north coast allowed explorers to use it as a base camp for trips to the interior. Casa de Isabella sits in the Centro Historico, the Old City of Santa Marta. This area, first developed after the Manzanares river receded in 1850, holds buildings that reflect traditional Mudejar architecture. The building's original owners inhabited the house for four generations and contributed significantly to the city's growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. In renovating the hotel for the modern era, we consistently chose classic style, maintaining the original integrity of the building and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guests feel the simplicity of Santa Marta's natural charm while enjoying modern comforts. From the greenery of the courtyard to the intimacy of a personal rooftop pool, Casa de Isabella fuses the tranquility of Colombian culture with top quality hotel conveniences. With lighting fast Wi-Fi, complimentary I-Pads, and Apple TV, as well as restored furniture and handmade adornments, this hotel stays anchored in tradition while looking ahead toward a bright future. We have proudly renovated the most beautiful boutique hotel in the Colombian Caribbean.

Very friendly staff, room and hotel overall feels clean, location is good. In general the hotel is great. I’ve stayed at their other hotel before, Casa de Leda, and it’s nicer though. Here the rooms are smaller than they look in the pictures, but in general it’s a good place to

Good hotel and excellent staff. From front desk to breakfast personal to domestic staff, all were awesome. The price is a bit high but it’s worth it. Close to everything. There’s a small Greek restaurant across which comes in handy for snacks and meals.
