“Some small issues, but very happy”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Overall we had a great stay. There were some issues that kept this from being great, but overall, a very good place to stay in Cartagena, and for a significantly cheaper cost than many others.

Pros: The room was huge, the air conditioners were really strong (very important in this climate), and the rooftop/pool area was fantastic and hardly used. Breakfast was great (Classico Cartagena was the best), especially if you had it on the roof with the breeze. Everyone in the hotel was really nice, and tried really hard to communicate even though we didn't speak the same language. Camilla was great about booking a trip to the islands.

Cons: When we were shown our room, I discovered that we had been "upgraded" to a room with a kitchen, but instead of two beds, we now had one. No one ever acknowledge that the room we had was different than what we reserved, which seemed strange. We didn't want to make a fuss, so we stayed where we were. Also, there were some minor things in our room that didn't work or broke while we were there (e.g. someone before us had lost the remote for the air conditioners, so we weren't able to control it; the door to the shower fell off its hinges; the outer door handle was broken and didn't work without a key).

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

This small boutique hotel is probably the best hotel next to the Sofitel in Cartagena. mind blowing rooms, great private rooftop with pool, TV with all on demand channels, WIFI and top the line details all around the place. If they had a restaurant in, it would be a 5 stars hotel.
Location is perfect in the middle of the historic city. Staff doesnt speak great english but was very helpul anytime we needed them. Overall a jewel to be discovered

My husband and I booked this place for 2 nights and ended up staying for 6 once we were there because it was so great !! We were in cartagena for a while and stayed in a few places, by far this was the best!!

delicious breakfast ( Clásico Cartagena is the way to go!) , attentive wonderful staff, specially Ivan the main front desk person. Beautiful rooftop and comfortable rooms. Can't recommend this place enough! Worth every penny.

Better than hoped for. They need to get a better photog for their publicity. Spacious, good location, all amenities - can't wait to go back. A few minor flaws, but not thing to leave us feeling that we'd been "had" in any way.

We stayed with our 2 kids in the 2 bedroom loft in August. The place exudes elegance and discretion. It felt like we were living in our own apartment and not a hotel. Breakfast is brought to your room and you need to choose what you want the night before. The apartment is beautifully furnished and well equipped with washer and dryer and separate kitchen, living room and mezzanine. The verdant roof terrace has a wonderful view of the rooftops of cartegena and we spent hours alone in the small pool watching the birds flying by and listening to the bells tolling. The location is perfect and being opposite the crepes and waffles restaurant is also very handy. Casa Claver is expensive but worth it!

a beautiful, clean, safe boutique hotel. perfect location in the Old City, with spectacular, breathtaking views from the rooftop pool! while relaxing in the pool, you are staring directly at the iconic roof dome, and pillars of San Pedro Claver church...its literally less that 100 feet away! the rooftop's lush garden's are even more dramatic and beautiful in person. the staff is very pleasant, sweet, warm and helpful. breakfast in your room (or anywhere that you want) is a really nice bonus. fresh fruit, juice, eggs, coffee, pancakes, and/or some traditional Colombian dishes. we wanted to stay in the more basic standard room, but since it was not available on the nights we needed, they upgraded us to a spectacular suite (for the same rate as a standard room), that was much larger than we needed/wanted, but made us feel important for a few nights...! immaculate, really nice amenities, modern, hip.

Room Tip: all rooms are clean, modern, stylish. the larger, more expensive suites are spectacular, but not ne...
