Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 September 2013

My family stayed at Casa Pombo five nights in August. The place is certainly beautiful, in an old colonial house very tastefully refurbished. Nonetheless the furniture is absolutely dated as if second hand bought, the "double beds" were about the size of a regular bed (about 120 cms) and really uncomfortable. The worst of it is that we were offered to have our breakfast cooked and served in our apartment (which was obviously quite convenient) and when we agreed we were asked for $200just to buy the food and $ 120 more for the cook, just for four days. Additionally the quality was remarkably poor and we even did not get the papaya we asked for.
The place is nothing but cheap, it should ay more attention to this details.

One of the best hotel experience ever! The place is wonderfull, we felt like princes and princesses. It consists of 5 appartments in an old colonial house. All appartments have high ceilings and modern ammenities. The place also has two pools. One refreshing with wonderfull vegatation and a waterfall in the courtyard and one on the rooftop with an outstanding view of the cathedral.It was very relaxing and quiet. The staff was very friendly and gave us great tips for dinner. Definitively a place to stay, do not hesitate! Cartagena is a beautiful city as well. Our only regret was to only have spent two night in this paradise.

Casa Pombo is a great place to spend time in Cartagena, it's in the walled city and has great rooms and facilities.
Food and service are great!
If you're thinking of spending time in Cartagena and you travel with a large group this is the place to be.

Casa Pombo is an enormous and marvelous historical property with a modern design well integrated within the original columns and the amazing patinas of the walls and ceillings. 5 huge apartments, each one with its own rooftop pool, hot tub, kitchen, living room and staff (housekeeper and chef) are surrounding a beautiful patio pool with a bridge-path, a majestic tree and a waterfall.
Top location! Top comfort! Top service! Top staff, that will cater every of your needs with the proper discretion! Don't bother looking elsewhere: this is the place to be either for business, with your family or for romance!
I was in Cartagena for a 5 business days trip, and it was a delight to relax at the peaceful Casa Pombo every evenings. Not to mention the food, from breakfast to dinner, that you order directly to your own chef according to your desire and taste.
This was my first time in Cartagena, which is a beautiful city, and my stay at Cas Pombo made my experience even greater!
I will definitely come back again...

we spent 5 fantastic days in Carthagenas, at Casa pombo. This boutique Hotel is just perfect, beautifully decorated, with style. the room are huge, with high ceiling, ensuite living room, pools on the roof for sunbathing and in the patio to refresh yourself, jacuzzi is also an option. great location, at the heart of the old town, from there you can walk pretty much evrywhere or grab a taxi to get you further.
this place has a magic feeling to it, its something you've never seen before....
if you are looking for a quiet, chic and luxurious place to stay, look no more... book a suite there.

Room Tip: i would definitely recommand the colonia style suite, though you don't have your private pool or...

Casa Pombo is a wonderful "Havre de Paix" in the center of Cartagena. Ideal to relax and spend quality time with friends and family.

We immediately felt at home. The staff members are adorable and helpful. Yudis (the lovely staff lady) is an amazing cook, preparing typical Caribbean dishes to perfection.
If you are looking for a full Cartagena experience, don't look any further.

The apartments are excellent, I had a wonderful week with my family, perfect place to relax and work if necessary. Perfect location in the centre of the old city, you can find all you need close the the hotel. And at night they had shows in the central park.
