Great location in safe area. Close to all nightlife and good restaurants. Breakfast includes local fruits, made to order eggs, and strong coffee. Staff has great recommendations for the city - definitely go to las Islas de Rosario. We left behind a jacket and the staff reached out to mail to us back in the States.

We loved the casa and our room that had a balcony looking over Plaza Fernandez de Madrid. The airconditioner was quiet! and excellent, and bed was comfortable. Very helpful staff; excellent breakfast and a happy hour in late afternoon. A little "pool" on the roof for soaking and a shower and toilet there and towels as well. .

Room Tip: If you don't mind a little music and talking that takes place around the plaza, then we advise t...

We were used to be warly welcomed in other columbian hotels, that was not the case in Casa la Fe. Staff not available and indifferent to their customers. No services. Disappointing breakfast. small rooms and small and crowded swiming pool. Weak air conditionned. Very weak wifi.

I really loved my stay at Casa La Fe. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the walled city. The interior courtyard is beautiful. The biggest plus, though, was the helpful staff, who arranged travel to and from the hotel, as well as a day trip out to the Rosario Islands. I highly recommend Casa La Fe to anyone planning a trip to Cartagena.

I visited Cartagena for 4 days and 3 nights with 4 other girls for a bachelorette party. Because of the bachelorette party, we wanted to plan a few things and make sure we knew where all the liquor/grocery stores nearby were - I emailed the hotel and they responded quickly and with details on everything we wanted to know about the city and day trips to Isla del Rosarios.

We got one double room and one Family room w balcony (had a queen + 2 twins in a loft) and both rooms were nice and clean, nothing fancy.

Breakfast was great - eggs cooked to order and local fruit that you wouldn't find in the states. We were all really happy with the hotel, especially the staff - they were so helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Lovely boutique hotel at a very reasonable price for cartagena (after extensive research);

Has a cosy rooftop pool and sunroof (with shade for whiteys!), fresh heat-relieving breeze, great view of Central cartagena (NB: many hotels have courtyard pools w/o sun);

staff were very pleasant and helpful;

room size good and well laid out (both a/c and fan);

simple breakfast (sister hotel in Santa Marta's in much more comprehensive);

free use of bicycles - this appeared to be rare as everyone kept asking us where we got ours (best way to get about in cartagena);

NB: great central spot in cartagena, but vs it's sister Kali restaurant in Santa Marta it lacks the panache and finesse of a top-end boutique hotel, but for value-for-money you can't get much better in Cartagena.

Stayed: June 2014, traveled as a couple

Thanks for the review. We are not a boutique hotel and our rates are certainly not boutique. However we do have several features which are unique - a happy hour with first drink free and thereafter at $2 per glass- unheard of in Cartagena! Then we have freshly ground coffee 24/7 and free bikes for guest use. Our pool is a postage stamp but at roof top level to catch the breeze. And finally a superb location in the old city with all the intoxication of Gabriel Garcia Marquez on our doorstep.
