Loved this place. A satellite of the upscale Santa Clara Sofitel located 150m walk from the entrance. You can use all the services offered by Santa Clara (pool, gym, spa) without surcharge.All the rooms have sea view and there is a great breakfast. Nice beds and linen, spacious, clean and cool room. Strongly recommend it!

Great Hotel, big and confortable bed. Nice staff. Air conditionair in both floors! Street vendors suck. They're nice, lovely, etc... but you can't walk alone. Singing, trying to sell everything they can.

Great option inside the walled city. Sister hotel of the Sofitel and you could use the pool (although you need to walk over). The rooms were spacious and the breakfast was great. For large families, note that don't have connecting rooms and you can't put too many people in the suite (even though they're large).

Room tip: The 3d floor is really the second floor and it's easier to walk up/down the stairs than taking the elevator.

There are an abundant number of properties to stay when in Cartagena but Bovedas de Santa Clara has to be one of the best. It is inside the walls of the old town and across the street (and wall) from the sea and close to the airport.

It is easy to walk anywhere in the old town from this hotel and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. The hotel is small in intimate but you can use the facilities across the street at their sister hotel which has a huge pool, several restaurants and many amenities, if that is your choice.

The staff is FABULOUS, friendly and accommodating. The full breakfast buffet is very good including many fresh fruits, juices, and pastries. They also offer some great eggs prepared the way you like them.

The room had two floors, 2 baths and a nice balcony overlooking the Caribbean.
There was also a nice table to setup your laptop, iron/ironing board, refrigerator and plenty of plates, glasses and silverware. The only a couple of complaints: They charge you for in room coffee and the bed is way to soft, in our opinion.

We would not hesitate to stay at Bovedas de Santa Clara on a return visit to Cartagena.
