I just returned from a two night stay at Casa La Fe. The hotel is in a great location in the old town area of Cartagena. We could easily walk anywhere in the old town and felt very safe at the hotel. The small hotel is beautifully appointed. There is a lovely small courtyard where a very good breakfast (about 6 or 7 options to choose from) was served each morning from 7 to 10am. The room was also very nice - not spacious, but nicely decorated and definately adequate space for the two of us . It was very clean, had a nice bathroom (with a good shower) and also a small fridge that kept beverages nice and cold. There was also a small desk and flat screen tv. The only complaint I have about the room - any my whole experience at Casa La Fe - is that beds are really hard, even with the matress topper that they can provide. I don't mind a firm mattress, but this was so hard, I did not get a good night sleep.
The staff at the hotel were all fantastic - very friendly and responsive - and extremely patient with my lack of Spanish. There is a great small patio on the roof with some very comfortable lounge chairs (if they could make the beds as comfortable, the hotel would be almost perfect!). There is wireless internet available throughout the hotel and it worked well. We stayed on the thrid floor facing the court yard and found it to be very quiet overall (we could hear a bit of music from a nearby restaurant at times). However, I think rooms on the first floor facing the courtyard could be very loud - especially when people are eating breakfast.
All in all, it was a great stay in every way except for the uncomfortable beds - this is the only thing that might prevent me from staying here again in the future.
