Casa La Fe - a Kali Hotel
Ranked #14 of 158 Hotels in Cartagena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 8, 2006

We recently stayed at Casa La Fe and the hotel certainly deserves its current high rating in TA for quality and value.. However we decided to break our eight day stay by spending three nights at their beach house. We wanted a complete escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Cartagena and needed to relax . Wow, this beach house was something else- fully catered, beautifully prepared and furnished and set in quite remarkable tropical surroundings. Like the hotel it also had free internet and satelliteTV/ comms. It's not advertised on their webpage so you need to ask for the details and book in advance. We highly recommend it..

Run by a native Englishman and his Colombian wife, Casa La Fe was a wonderful home away from home during our stay in Cartagena. The hotel staff was extraordinarily friendly and Carmen and Geoff (the owners) went out of their way to be helpful including setting up tours to the mud volcano and the Islas del Rosario.
The hotel was very clean and very safe. Each room has it's own safe and hotel guests must ring the doorbell to enter. For anyone who is weary of travelling to Colombia this hotel will make you feel very secure.
The roof deck is a wonderful little oasis complete with lounge chairs and a small pool for cooling off. A delicious breakfast of fruit, eggs and toast (and if you're lucky a delicious cheesy biscuit type of treat!) are included in the rate and each room has a well stocked and very well priced mini bar to cool you off after your forays about town. I highly recommend Casa La Fe to anyone travelling to Cartagena!

In today's world I sometimes think that one is happy if what one pays for just reaches the value of what is paid. Not true at Casa La Fe. The friendliness of this establishment, the detail in which the staff functions and commitment to excellence is formidable. I put myself through college running a hotel restaurant in DC so my comments are as an insider not just a traveller. We regretted not being able to say our personal goodbyes to Geoff and Carmen and we are missing those breakfasts of bollo, papaya and arepas. Alexandra (my daughter), Kym and myself will return one day to soothe ourselves in Casa La Fe. Again, thanks so much for making our stay in Cartagena a wonderful and delightful experience.

Casa La Fe is a great option in the old city, particularly if you're looking to stay away from the large hotels there. The owners, Geoff and Carmen, did a beautiful job restoring the property. The rooms are very comfortable -- ours was on the top floor and the ceiling must've been 20 feet high -- and the bathrooms are modern. There is a rooftop pool area that, while small, was never crowded. The first floor atrium is a pleasant place for breakfast. The food was simple but authentic and quite good. The staff is absolutely wonderful. And the hotel is in a terrific spot -- centrally located such that you're a 10-minute walk from just about anywhere within the walls, but comfortably removed from the most heavily trafficked plazas. Many of the city's best restaurants are within a couple of blocks (it seems they've clustered there because the Sofitel is nearby.)

I can think of only one caveat -- sound travels inside the hotel. It's never loud, but light sleepers might awaken to morning activity.

That said, we'll be returning to Cartagena, and to Casa La Fe.
