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.

We stayed at Casa Isabella the night before we began the Lost City Trek. It was a perfect location because the walk to the Expotur office was less than five minutes. We had breakfast in the hotel that morning and their rooms are very spacious :)

Booked this place in a emergency situation, and got very lucky with it! Basically i was escaping from the " hotel" i originally booked for my stay in town ( Mirador in Taganga) which proved itself to be a total nightmare at arrival! So booked at La Casa Di Isabella the very same night, the next morning i arrived at the hotel, which its located in the heart of Santa Marta historical centre, two minutes walk from the beach, 5 minutes walk from " el parque de los novios " which its the turistic road where are all the clubs & restaurants, and 5 minutes from " la plaza de Bolivar" where you can find something like 5 banks, very usefull if you need a cash machine. The decor of the place its amazing, with a early colonial taste, rooms are very comfortable and clean, hot water, tv satellite & wifi perfectly functional. What blowed my minde was the Breakfast, served at the table and cooked to order, home made breads and arepas, amazing pancakes! Stuff very attentive, talkative and professional, always smiling. Receptionist, all very helpful and knows how to dish out all the info you might need, from trasport, to attraction, banks and so on. Basically the place saved my stay in Santa Marta, at a very very reasonable price. Highly recommended. Definately going back when in the area.

Friendly and helpful staff. Reception staff speak English which is an added bonus. Bedroom and bathroom well appointed. Close to main restaurant/tourist area. Breakfast included - fruit juice, hot drink, fresh fruit and cooked options available. I would not hesitate to recommend.

The suite we got looked totally different from the one on the pictures, it was smaller and the furniture was not the same; instead we had an old black leather couch in our room. Furthermore the wifi connection in our room was very poor, so we had to go to the common area every time we needed internet connection. The lights from our private pool didn´t work too. As we asked the staff for help they didn´t do anything to fix it. For the price and for a suite room, we expected a better experience.

Great decor and a good location in the buzzing old town part of Santa Marta. Great staff. Delicious breakfast. Spacious rooms and a very welcome plunge pool. Wished our itinerary could have stretched to another day.
