“Eclectic design”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We stayed for one night before returning to the US. The hotel design is very eclectic and the grounds are beautiful. The rooftop pool is amazing. The service is very good. The location is good if you want to be in Getsemani, but is also a short walk away from El Centro and San Diego. Our only complaint is that some of the design features get in the way of functionality and comfort.

1. No internet available in all areas
2. The worst coffee ever in Colombia
3. The room is quite uncomfortable... The shower on one side, the sink on another, the wc room without A/C
4. No privacy... We could perfectly watch other's guests shower room from ours
5. Nevertheless, service is awesome, thanks to Amauri and Orlando and Rafael at the front desk, Jaffet serving breakfast! Thanks

We stayed here for 4 nights. I literally looked at over 20 hotels in Cartagena before deciding on Casa Lola. It is located outside the walled city but it is super close and easy wak and in the end we were actually happy we were in Gestemani as it forced us to explore more of the city and there are heaps of cheap eats and bars close by.

The hotel is very lovely and our room was clean and well styled. We were really keen to have a pool in our hotel as the humidity is extremely high and it's nice to be able to just chill out. The roof top pools are small but honestly they were perfect and have a great view.

The breakfast inuded is lovely - fruit to start and then eggs how you prefer on toast.

For the price I would highly recommend this. I really wanted to stay in the old town at the Softel originally however I checked this out when we arrived and whilst a nice pool it just doesn't feel as authentic as the boutique hotels and Casa Lola really made us feel part of the culture.

This hotel blow my mind away. My partner and I wanted to experience the old town and Casa Lola was the best option we could find. this gorgeous boutique hotel offers excellent service (Claudia and all the hotel staff are extremely helpful). The food in the mornings is excellent and do not miss a sunset in the rooftop pool with a delicious coctail (Pina coladas are great). Rooms are very clean and stylish. the location of the hotel is not right in the middle of the old city however, it is littlerally borderline between getsemani and the clock tower, so is just a short walk to the best restaurants and bars, plus Cafe havana is literally down the road. Love this hotel, cant wait to be back :) Thanks Casa Lola

Pretty interior design but with zero thought to safety. Beware this hotel is a real death trap, it's a matter of time before a guest is seriously injured or dies.

In the main staircase of the building there is no hand rail despite it being quite high. There is a shard glass balustrade with big sections missing on the other side.

In our room we had a 3m high platform over a stone floor with second bed. Totally inadequate wooden decorative handrails. No hand rails at all on the stairs up to this platform. The Staircase itself was very poorly constructed and was wobbly.

Highly slippery polished floor finish next to the swimming pool, caused our daughter a nasty fall.

Loud music from the street. Wifi didn't work. Two hour power cut. Shower was cold. Breakfast was poor. Coffee undrinkable.

Finally the quoted price of 280,000 was jacked up to over 400,00. Got hit by 90 000, extra charge for our six year old daughter.

This is a nice well-designed boutique hotel. The public spaces -- especially the garden where you have breakfast -- are lovely. However, the rooms are more stylish than they are functional. For example, the bathrooms are small and open to the room so there's little privacy. Overall I enjoyed the hotel, but I wish it had been located inside the old city walls.

We found this property searching boutique hotels and for a change, it was true to it's word...
Amazing staff that really pulled out all the stops to make our stay perfect.
Breakfast was large and really good.
Easy access to the walled part of the city.
Fun fun fun and the perfect little secret for Cartagena...

Room Tip: All the rooms are well designed and face the interior courtyard. There are rooms that are larger on...
