“Cannot Wait to Come Back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Our family has been so incredibly impressed with Casa Canabal that we are already missing it and we just left!
Pros: ease of reservations, English speaking staff, quick response time to emails/phone calls. Breakfast is good and filling with staff willing to accommodate any need you can possibly have. Cleanliness of rooms and hotel is top-notch. Very quiet suite (#210) and had a small terrace and great view of the street below. Fully stocked mini-bar and television down and upstairs. Bedding was superior and beds were comfortable. Air conditioning was our saving grace!
Cons: NONE!

The staff at Casa Canabal have gone above and beyond in making our stay comfortable and welcoming. The area (Getsemani) is very lively and there are many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The area is safe and we walked late into the night with no problems. The hotel will gladly arrange travel to and from anywhere you need to go.

After traveling extensively over Europe, the US and now South America, we had the means and choice to stay anywhere but Casa Canabal will always be our "home" in cartagena.

Helpful staff. Close to great upcoming bars in Getsenami. Rooms however have no windows which makes it feel small and musty smell. Pools were nice to cool down but not ideal if you are looking for a 'swim'. There was always a few options at breakfast.

We stayed at casa canabal for 4 nights and were really pleased with our choice.

Firstly Henry the guy who manages the bookings is warm and plesent and instantly makes you feel at home.

The room we had was very spacious, really well spec'd with a great bathroom.

Breakfast was good and the service around the hotel in general was good.

Would definately recommend this boutique hotel. Its also located bang in the middle of bohemian area getsemini, which for me is a must if you want to experience the true cartagena

The hotel is new and small. The rooms are small but complete and well furnished. Try to book rooms as far from the reception area as possible as it is very noisy. Only the AC drowns out the sound of voices and guests moving around. Most rooms have no exterior (window) view. There is a nice dip pool on the roof terrace. No views from the roof terrace. No elevator. Staff is kind and helpful. Breakfast is good. Situation: walking distance from the old, walled city. Located in a narrow street with nice small local restaurants.

Dear Mr Peter, is gratifying for us to have feedback like yours, then motivate us to improve the shortcomings that prevent having a pleasant stay.
We apologize for providing a room near reception which accumulates noise, thanks to your comments, we are working to solve problems of filtering noise in the rooms on the first floor.
We hope that in your next arrival to Cartagena we choose and so give you the service you deserve.

We stayed at Casa Canabal for two nights in April 2014 while on a week long vacation in Colombia. We could not have been happier with the experience. We chose Casa Canabal based on 1) positive feedback from the tripadvisor community and 2) price. We knew we wanted to stay in the Old City and preferred to spend $150 USD or less per night.

At first we were hesitant to stay in Getsemani, but after our stay we could not have been happier. While there are larger, more luxurious hotels inside the Walled City such as the Santa Teresa or Sofitel Santa Clara, those hotels were approximately $350 USD per night or more. Casa Canabal offers a wonderful, comfortable experience for significantly cheaper. Also, Getsemani is an awesome location in Cartagena and offers great dining and nightlife. Do not be hesitant about staying in Getsemani - it has a lot to offer and you can easily walk to walled city in five minutes.

As far as the hotel itself, the staff was awesome - extremely helpful and polite. We needed assistance booking transportation to Tayrona and they arranged the pick up for us - no problem. Also, you are able to use bikes for free to explore the city. The roof top pool is an awesome spot to relax. While the pool is small, it is good for cooling off and it was pretty much empty while we were there. There is a lot of space to lounge. Our room was small and had no windows, but it was extremely clean and comfortable. I understand a number of the rooms do have windows so I recommend asking specifically if you insist on having them. The AC worked flawlessly, the bathroom was very modern and the bed was super comfortable. We spent our time in Cartagena exploring, eating and drinking so we did not need a very luxurious room.

Overall, I highly recommend Casa Canabal. It was worth every penny and I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here only for 1 night, I wish it where more... The hotel is really beautiful, unfortunately in a trashy neighbourhood.
But from this hotel you can walk to the City wall.
Great massage btw.!
Only the swimming pool is a bit small, but big enough to cool down in the hot sun!
Would really reccomand!

This hotel is located in the increasingly interesting and dynamic Getsemani neighbourhood. As a result, the tariffs offered are very competitive when compared with similar offerings inside the walled city (which is only five minutes walk away). We decided to spend a little more for a suite, which turned out to be huge space with a large living area downstairs and bedroom upstairs, all combining modern high quality furnishings with colonial style. Staff were all friendly and helpful and breakfast was outstanding. Just wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel also had good quality bicycles available free to guests which was a nice touch. Will definitely stay again.
