We recently stayed at the Allure Chocolat Hotel and had a very enjoyable stay. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids ages 19 & 20. Checkin went smoothly, being greeted with cool water and a chocolate, which was nice after a long day of travel. We had adjoining rooms on the 3rd floor, that overlooked the harbor, being...

Excellently located walking distance from all the attractions of wonderful Cartagena. Friendly, welcoming staff. Well designed making good use of the tight space in the thin buildings. Great views from the rooftop pool and bar. Highly recommended, especially for couples. Restaurant food was good. I loved the experience

Had a great stay at this modern boutique hotel in Getsemani (the hip neighborhood just outside the walled city but technically still part of the old city). Hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel staff went above and beyond in helping with tours and reservations. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The pool was nice but a little crowded. This hotel...

Excellent option in Cartagena de Indias !!! The staff is very kind, the room is very comfortable also the bed and shower. Very clean. The location is not inside of the city wall but is very close that for me is perfect because the center is a little dirty, noise and full of street vendors. The breakfast is very good....

The Chocolat Hotel did not disappoint and in fact, was more than we had expected. Very comfortable, inexpensive, good value and the best breakfasts we had in Colombia so far in our 3 weeks of traveling. The room was very comfortable (though a bit small) and the choice of a fragrance for the room was a nice touch.The staff was...
