4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Gorgeous hotel, the rooms beautiful and clean, its close to nice restaurants and the plaza de San Diego, the hotel doesn't have a pool but you can use the hotel Santa Clara's pool and spa.
We love this hotel.

Quaint little hotel, with rooms overlooking the Sea.
You are able to use the facilities of the sister 5 star hotel Sofitel Santa Clara.
Well worth the stay even though a little expensive

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view room with balcony.

We only stayed at the bovedas Santa clara one night (we were staying on the rosario islands for several days, and got a little bored after a few days, but our reservation at the actual Santa Clara wasn't till the next night). And much to our surprise it was gorgeous and lovely. Our duplex room was completely brand new and beautiful. We were really impressed.

Great Location, great rooms, views, service etc... My partner is from Cartagena and we visit 1 - 2 times a year, we always stay at the Bovedas. Great value, you have all the amenities of Hotel Santa Clara without having to spend as much.

I have used over 7 Boutique and Luxury hotels in the Old City, but there is no better deal than Bovedas, you pay a reasonable price and have all the services of Santa Clara. Rooms are very nice and complete and all rooms have beautiful balconies where you can contemplate the caribbean. I have stayed there over 10 times, in business and leisure trips.

the bovedas santa clara is a wonderful boutique hotel in a quiet spot of the old city of cartegena. since it is connected with the luxury hotel santa clara just a short block away, it has the amenities of a luxury hotel at a slightly less price. the staff was very capable, spoke english and offered good advise for sightseeing. the hotel is right next to the old wall and we could hear the clip-clops of the horses pulling their carriages along the street below the wall and next to the caribbean. highly recommended

We stayed for two nights at this hotel as part of a longer trip to Colombia organised through a tour agency. We wish we could have stayed longer - to further enjoy both the city and the hotel!
The staff were friendly and extremely helpful - we had some problems with a local tour agency (nothing to do with the hotel), and the front desk made numerous calls to them on our behalf.
Our room was very large, tastefully decorated, and had a very comfortable seating area with a large tv. (There was also another tv in the wardrobe facing the bed). The bathroom (which in itself was relatively compact, just the shower and a toilet) had a spacious step-in shower, and there was a large sink/vanity area outside of the bathroom, with a wall-mounted hairdryer. There was also a small kitchen area with a sink, cupboards with glasses, mini-bar fridge, small table and chairs. There were drawers, hanging areas, a safe and air conditioning. Our room looked out towards the rampart of the city walls at Las Bóvedas.
The hotel is in the San Diego neighbourhood, one of the zones within the old city walls. We visited the 4 main zones of the old city (San Diego, Centro/Santo Domingo, La Matuna, Getsemaní) on foot and also walked from the hotel to restaurants and bars in the evening.
Breakfast is served in the sister hotel across the street - the Sofitel Santa Clara - and can be enjoyed in the cloisters of this beautiful former convent, which has plants and toucans in the patio. Hot drinks are served by the staff and the breakfast is buffet style, with a variety of cereals, sweet and savoury cakes and breads, fruit juices, fresh fruit, jams, hams and cheeses and hot foods.
Guests at the Bóvedas de Santa Clara hotel can also enjoy the facilities at the Sofitel Santa Clara, such as internet (free for the first 15 minutes but tricky to find!) and the pool. Unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy these facilities fully! Maybe next time...
