“Amazing”
Reviewed February 1, 2009

Hotel LM may be our favorite hotel ever. We've stayed in boutique hotels all over the world, and LM is truly one of the most memorable. The hotel itself is beautiful, but what most stood out was the unmatched level of service, particularly for Cartagena. (It FAR surpassed the Charleston Sta.Teresa where we also stayed - and do not recommend). The LM staff was incredibly helpful and attuned to our every need, which really made it seem like staying in a private home with a private butler!

Other highlights were the delicious fresh juices - particularly enjoyed from the roof deck - and the roof-top massage, followed by the jacuzzi. When you stay here, make sure you leave enough time to enjoy the hotel - even though its location is perfect for sightseeing, the pleasure of this place is the hotel itself.

I just came back from the best honeymoon ever. Everything was perfect in Cartagena, we went diving, appreciated all the history and the Hotel was wonderful.

Being a seasoned traveler, this is the first time i write a review. I just felt compelled to do it, after a superb experience at the LM Hotel in Cartagena

I am a regular at Cartagena's Santa Clara, wich certainly deserves all the accolades i have read about in this site. But the LM is a truly unique experience in Cartagena. The hotel is nestled in what once was a colonial home, totally refurbished with exquisite taste and just 7 guestrooms, all of them beautifully decorated, and a lovely pool located on the roof. It certainly is not cheap, at around 380 usd per night, but you will have a truly personal service, friendly and efficient staff, bathrooms with all the extras and toiletries you expect to find in a 5 star world class stay (wich is not common even at 5 star hotels in the Caribbean area), good location to stroll down the colonial streets, tons of relax, and if you want a tour to the city attractions or the coral reef islands close to the city, the staff will arrange it very well and easyly. If you go to Cartagena and want a experience akin to stay in one of the millonaires houses now common in the city, this is the place to be. Actually, is like being a guest in one of those houses.

Only slight shortfall is limited choice in restaurant service, but when you have a breakfast or whatever you chose made to order and served so well, and such a big array of good restaurants within walking distance, this is barely noticeable

If you are new to Cartagena, i highly recommed this place
