I have been many times to the Sofitel Sta. Clara in the past years as a guest on social events or as a hotel guest. The location is absolutely perfect in the historic center of Cartagena and just minutes away from attractions and great restaurants. The Sofitel is together with the Hotel Sta. Teresa one of the most important hotel of old town Cartagena, I would say.The Atmosphere of the hotel is unique beeing an old monastery many years ago,the court yard with its lush vegetation and old well and free flying tucans just beautiful. The pool has a nice decent size and definetley invites to relax for a couple of hours. The rooms are not espectacular, though, not big and just functional. The breakfast buffet in the morning offers a lot variety, fresh cut fuits and fresh juices and you can sit outside in the courtyard between the old columns. The staff is very friendly and attentive and well trained. The Sofitel has also a second building just 100m down the streets Las Bovedas where they offer suites, you have to walk to the Sofitel for breakfast and restaurant but I never cared about that detail. Las Bovedas was recent remodeld.The Sofitel is definitely an expensive hotel but like everything elso in Cartagena nowadays. It suits perfectly business people and tourists.
