I spent 4 days with my girlfriend in Cartagena. We actually went during the high season and too be honest it wasn't as bad as I expected. Cartagena is just an amazing place and architectural jewel. Now, the Hotel were we stayed was as awesome as our experience in the city. The Hotel (and I mean: the location, the design, the ambience, the rooms, the jacuzzi, the service and last but not least, the staff!!) were just amazing! You cannot go to a place to Cartagena and stay outside the walled city...it is a must so you can really enjoy the whole experience.

Not only the pick to go to Cartagena was the best for the beginning of the year, but also the Hotel made of this experience something unique. Highly recommended!!

PS. Breakfast at the hotel was just great. William and the staff prepare amazing corn and plantain breads (try them all), the fruits are exquisite, the coffee freshly brewed...ham cheese omelet and the deep fried arepa con huevo are among the best I had.

Room Tip: Room number 7!! at the very top, with views towards the city and direct access to the Jacuzzi on the...

Stayed here for 4 days with my partner - an absolute delight. Room size, finishes, design, atmosphere, all second to none in the area. The service was exceptional. The staff were more than happy to help with any issues and arrangements. The hotel is well located in the old town area, in a quiet street only two blocks walk from the busier restaurant precincts. Probably one of the nicest boutique hotels we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world (and we stay in a lot of them!). Breakfasts (included) were exceptional - anything you asked for they will do - but mostly we asked for something local - this was a fantastic Arepa con heuvos (Arepas with Egg) - a corn-based pancake pocket, filled with mince, salsa and egg, topped with local Aji (tomato/chilli salsa) and Creme Fraiche. Delicious. They even let us come and watch the staff cook this in the kitchen so that we can try to recreate at home. The jacuzzi on the top floor with roof terrace, the two air-conditioned salons, and the shaded pool all add to the luxurious experience that is Hotel Quadrifolio. This hotel well and truly deserves number 1 rating on Trip Advisor for Catagena.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel would be preferred - I noted there were two suites on the front of th...

The old town section of Cartagena is a very interesting place filled with history. We explored the narrow streets, marveled at the architecture, visited the Palace of the Inquisition, and enjoyed seeing an evening wedding at the cathedral. Our Hotel Quadrifolio was a wonderful respite not only from the heat, but it also provided an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the old town. The architecture of the hotel is remarkable, which provides stunning contrasts with the furnishings and fittings. The bathroom was luxurious, with an open to the sky shower in the corner. The bed was super comfortable. Returning to the hotel for an afternoon siesta was much looked forward to, and proved to be a real treat. Breakfast was outstanding. Nice quiet street--but close to the activity. Entry and exit to the hotel is carefully controlled by entry through the huge old door, monitored by a staff person. I appreciated the security aspects of this. All in all, we really enjoyed the Quadrifolio and would return in an instant.

Pros
- very nice colonial building
- large rooms with colonial charm
- service with attention to detail and pleasant surprises
- Good breakfast
- intimacy of a 7 rooms boutique hotel

Cons
- have to ring the bell at the door to be let in

It's the second hotel we visited in Cartagena. The first one was a wonderful experience but in a more modern building and we wanted to feel the colonial charm. Quadrifolio didn't disappoint. They did a very good job with the renovations. Everything looks fresh and clean while presereving the charm of the colonial style. The service is full of nice surprises such as a wet towel to refresh your face and a freshly squeezed lemonade at the check in or the way they arrange the bedrooms in the evening, etc.
The rooftop tub and terrace are quite small. There is a pool in the shade on the main floor in the courtyard A great area to cool down.
The only thing we found a bit weird is the entrance system. They don't have a door man like most other hotels so you have to ring the bell and wait a few seconds that someone opens the door. At the end of the day not a big inconvenience but it feels a bit akward if you go in an out several times in the day. I guess they have somehow to run leaner in staff to keep competitve prices when there are only 7 rooms in the hotel. Very peaceful and relaxing stay.

I booked this hotel on the internett based on other reviews. This is a hotel that has "the touch". Excelent service, nice rooms, delicate interior, nice pool and a great roof terrace.
8 rooms and with just 2 rooms facing the street.

We were 10 Friends and we stay in this beautiful boutique hotel in the centre of Cartagena. Although I visited with friends, I recommend this hotel for couples, and for business travelers. It has wifi all over the place, an amazing business lounge, pool, jacuzzi and the bedrooms are beautiful. Last but not least breakfast is delicious, they have an array of juices of every tropical fruit you can imagine! Strongly recommended!
