“I would love to stay here forever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Wow! I will never stay at a large hotel again! The service was phenomenal, the food lovely, the atmosphere wonderful!

With only 7 rooms, our group took up 3. Each room was lovely, with gorgeous bathrooms. There was plenty of space for clothing, bathroom necessities, etc.

I really can't say enough about the staff. They made us feel at home, interrupted their dinners to help us with things, went out of their way ot help us! Our first night Javier walked us to the FM restaurant so we wouldn't get lost. The second night, in the pouring rain, he again walked with us to the restaurant, then helped one of our group walk back to the hotel as she had gotten soaked! He waited for her to change and dry her hair, found a bigger umbrella for her, walked her back to the restaurant! Unbelievable!

We only ate breakfast here, and they did a nice job of meeting some specific requests about how eggs were to be cooked, cooked "typical" food for us, made omelets on request, etc. The fruit was wonderful, as were the breads. We saw some other meals being prepared/eaten, and they looked and smelled wonderfu.

I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Right in the old town area, we walked everywhere within minutes. The staff gave helpful suggestions on places to go, eat, shop. Theya lso arranged a great private tour for us.

Room Tip: My only complaint (truly minor) is that we supposedly had an Jr Executive Suite...which was actually...

We actually booked the Santa Ana - lower in price and with excellent tripadvisor ratings - but on arrival the manage had to confess that our booking was given away to a different customer. Mess up of internet vs phone booking. She was very appologetic and told us that she set us up in the LM for the 3 nights at the same price we booked the Santa Ana (550k COP - also not shabby..). She paid the Taxi to the LM and already in the lobby we were thinking we got lucky. Old City charm in a completely refurbished house with modern design but not over the edge. Staff is doing everything, the breakfast is for superstars (albeit these fried egg tarts would eventually kill you I believe...). Internet speed throughout the hotel is extra fast for CO standards and the roof top terrace is magnificent. Perfect way to chill out after an energy soaking day in the city. Room was reminding us of all the things we could do to our house to make it perfect... Long way to go. Start with the 5m high ceiling which will be a tough one.
If you are there go to either to Peru Fusion for dinner or next door (forgot the name) for top class Peruvisn fair...that is if you have digested the egg tart by dinner time. Reception will gladly guide you and make reservations if necessary.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel LM for 3 nights and it was the most pleasant 3 nights of any hotel stay we have had. The service was incredible. Javier was amazing at making sure we were set with activities and made reservations for whatever we needed/wanted. The food was great and it was so nice to have custom meals made whenever needed. I was 6 months pregnant when we stayed and it was comforting to always have some good food around and the pool was a life saver in the Cartagena heat and humidity. ;) The room was beautiful and felt very luxurious. The room was serviced 2-3 times a day, which was amazing, always clean towels and a made bed. My husband and I want to go back to Cartagena just to stay in Hotel LM again. This hotel is a luxury experience for sure and worth the stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 6, and it was quiet and lovely.

Good location in the historic sector. Just in front of a very good restaurant, Krioyo, inside the walled city. Very sleek rooftop bar area. Great for a romantic date to have a drink at night.

A great boutique hotel. Very beautifully built and furnished around an open courtyard. Good location in the historic sector inside the walled city. Half a dozen rooms on the second floor, very sleek rooftop jacuzzi and bar area. Breakfast to your specification, decent dinner. Extremely high quality service. I stayed in English with no problems. I've been all over the Santa Clara, and while it's true the Santa Clara is larger and the common areas are more grand, the LM rooms are just as nice and the more intimate setting has an appeal.

I stayed in LM Hotel with my boyfriend in September 2011 and we absolutly loved it. Cartagena de Índias is beautiful, and the hotel made our stay even special.
If you ever go to Cartagena don´t miss this great hotel - it is right in the heart of the historic part of the city, so you´d be able to walk to all the plazas, museums, shops and restaurantes. The staff is always ready to help you and the food is fantastic. Definitly a place you should´t miss!

My husband and I are living in Medellin and when our son and his wife, and friends came to visit, we all decided to spend the weekend in Cartagena. The Hotel LM was recommended to us, and I can see why.

This boutique hotel, in the heart of the walled city of Cartagena has 7 well appointed guest rooms with attention to detail. The staff are amazing and everyone welcomed us and did everything to make our stay memorable. The rooftop terrace had a small pool that was perfect to cool off in, as well as lounging areas and a massage table.

Our son treated us to an incredible dinner that was served on the terrace. He met with the personal chef earlier in the day and planned the menu based on our wishes. It will go down as one of the top 5 meals of my life!

Transfers to and from the airport were well handled, the included breakfasts delicious, and the friendliness of the staff appreciated.
