Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a very lovely hotel in Getsamani. I was a little worried about what we'd find considering the location it's in, but I was very pleased. We were greeted with welcome drinks when we arrived. The staff was very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. There are 2 pools at the hotel, we liked the rooftop one, as there was more privacy. The rooftop also has various shaded seating areas where you can curl up with a good book, or lounge chairs if you want to sit in the sun. They also have a bar that makes delicious fruity drinks. We liked that breakfast was included. It included fruit, bread, coffee & juice, and then you had several choices to choose from: pancakes, omelette, cereal, arepas, etc. The hotel has obviously had a massive renovation, and they did a beautiful job. It looks like they took their time and did things right, as well as used quality materials. Our room was tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable. I liked that housekeeping left candies on our bed in the evening. Little touches like that made it special. The bathroom shower had a wonderful rainfall showerhead, and great water pressure. There were cute little toiletries on a tray on the counter. Our room didn't have any windows looking to the outside, we did have a window that looked out over the pool. But we didn't really miss it, as the lighting is done in a very creative way. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the old city, as well as several malls and lots of restaurants. If you'd rather not walk, there are always plenty of taxis around that will happily take you whereever you'd like to go. And their prices are pretty reasonable. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay at Casa Canabal, and would recommend it to others.

Casa Canabal is located on a busy street in the area of Getsemani. They are currently redoing streets and sidewalks, but that was not a deterrent for us. We had a two minute walk to the main areas of the walled city. The staff, including Leonardo, Henry, and Ana, as well as the housekeeping staff, maintenance, dining room, and Chef were so hospitable and friendly. The hotel itself has about 22 rooms. We chose a jr. suite facing the street. Surprisingly, we were not affected at all with any noise. Rooms are lush and pristine. The terraces and pool on the rooftop were great with ample seating, shade and towels. The hotel is a little gem.

Room Tip: Ask the desk clerk. He/ she will be happy to help.

Cartagena is a bustling and wonderful place, however it was just bliss to stay in this beautiful boutique hotel. The hotel has been very attractively designed around a central landscaped pool and courtyard. The rooftop area has another pool and bar and is a lovely spot to spend some time. We arrived here without booking and ended up staying 6 nights. Our first room on the ground floor was a little small however as the air conditioning wasn't working we were moved to a larger room on the 2nd floor. The rooms generally don't have outside windows which is I suspect typical of the area. Breakfast was good and the staff were all very friendly although it was sometimes a little difficult to get a drink in the rooftop area.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms are quite small. I think only one room in the hotel had a window to the outside. T...

Good location in the Getsemani neighborhood. Lots of places to eat and drink. The neighborhood is not as touristed as some of the other neighborhoods, and less money too. I l paid $400 complete for 3 nights. Comfortable room with good bed, very nice bathroom with killer shower, Direct TV with lots of channels, bicycles available, one block from big supermarket.and excellent service from the front staff. Sound like a place you should stay?

Hotel accomodations are so delightful! People from staff are so friendly and helpful.
We arrived early morning and the room wasn't ready (check in is at 3pm), but Mr. Leonardo gave us an upgrade and a room with a balcony and a beautiful view so we could shower and get rest immediately.
The rooftop area is so nice, pool, bar and great sofas made our mornings there!
In my opinion, breakfast needs to be improved, but it's not so bad.
All staff gave us some tips about the city, where to go, how to get there, etc.
Thank you all for making our vacations so special!

A cool oasis in sultry Cartagena. Wonderful staff give this boutique hotel a touch of luxury. I felt truly 'looked after' at all times during my two night stay. Want to borrow a laptop to check your e-mail? not a bother. Cocktails or extra towels on the terrific rooftop terrace? order up! How about a loan of a bike or a late night coffee from the night manager? too easy. This hotel is intimate without being stifling and has an easy, modern style. Loved the cascading greenery around the pool, carefully placed candles on stairs and the oversized rooftop terrace with an abundance of sun lounges. Would have stayed longer had my budget allowed. I had a standard room, which was a little on the small side (particularly the bathroom), but shuttered windows looking straight out to the pool somewhat compensated. Would definitely choose a suite if staying with a partner. Tip for management: Bob Marley on constant repeat can bore even the most die-hard reggae lover

Room Tip: Choose a suite if there's two of you
