“Amazing !!!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Most beautiful hotel in Cartagena. Our flight was delayed from Bogota to Cartagena and arrived in the morning. Our room was ready and comfortable. The air condition worked like a charm, but the beauty of the hotel was beyond amazing. Juan Carlos, our host, selected an array of restaurants that we are still talking about. I loved Frank & Frank, el Gallinero and many others.

Thank you guys for making us feel at home!!

Absolutely one of the most romantic, most luxurious hotels I have ever stayed in. The design is stunning - every detail is beautiful. The hotel actually makes you feel beautiful when you are there. The staff is very friendly and knows everything about the city. They were always there to greet me with a warm welcome and plenty of suggestions for whatever food or experience I was looking for, which was always just a few steps away. An absolute gem and totally tranquil haven surrounded by the hustle and bustle of Cartagena. Cannot wait to return...

Room Tip: I was lucky enough to tour the whole hotel - every room is gorgeous!

Location and luxury - Hotel Casa Del Coliseo Cartagena scores big time! For first timers, with a short amount of time we were close enough to everything we wanted to see and do in the city and able to seek refuge in the oasis that is the hotel. Perfection.

Truth is, this was my first time in Cartagena so I didn't know what to expect. A friend suggested this hotel and thank god cause it made me feel like I was on vacation for sure. The design and feel of this hotel makes me feel a little like being in Miami at some of the cool and swanky places there. I loved and I mean loved the pool on the roof; it was a much needed break from the Columbian heat during the day. My only issue was not having a restaurant in the hotel but I guess it didn't matter much cause there are a million places to eat and drink all within steps from the hotel. The location is perfect. I like that its not a big hotel with so many people, in fact it makes me feel like Im home at my apartment JUST MUCH NICER. :)

Anyway, I would suggest this place if you want to feel like your on vacation and living the TRAVEL Magazine life.

A perfect mix of boutique/historical with modern full service! Beautifully restored in the style of the old city, but the rooms have AC, cable TV, minibars, and daily cooked breakfast. Excellent, multilingual staff on call 24/7. The rooftop pool is a must for drinks in the late afternoons.

Will definitely stay here on my next visit!

I stayed here for two nights and was impressed with the place and the service. Casa coliseo is a nice escape from the areas outside to a nice comfortable and cool room. The service and food was excellent. The rooms were always spotless and they always had the proper information to steer us towards a great time in Cartagena.

The place is very nicely decorated but totally unprepared to receive and accommodate any guests. The shower over floats the bathroom when used. Barely any wifi reception in rooms and guests have to go upstairs 2 stories, go down stairs agin to access their bedroom (101-102). Also, there is NO system in place (key, magnetic card) to enter the hotel, guests have to knock on the door and wait on the street for someone inside to open it....The bottom line is that the hotel apparently opened on December 26, 2013 and it is NOT ready to accommodate guests at this time.

Room Tip: I stayed at the Casa Claver a few days previously and I was totally amazed by the place.

Dear Sir, thank you very much for your review, it is very useful for us in order to improve our service and make your stay, and that of other guests, an unforgettable one in the most positive of the senses. We are very happy that you like the interior design as we have tried to make our hotel not only very pleasing to the eye but comfortable as well.As you mentioned, we have recently opened after a complete renovation of the historic property. Consequently we have had some issues that have been out of our control. The internet service has been spotty as the local provider has not been diligent in providing us with the service we have contracted him for.
The shower does not have a border to separate it from the rest of the bathroom, this was an aesthetic decision. The bit of splash which can occur while showering is very easily controlled by making use of the bath mat provided.
As you further mention, the reception desk is on the ground floor and to access any room you have to go up the stairs. This will take you to the first and second floors and ultimately to our beautiful rooftop pool; if your room is on the mezzanine level you will have to go down a few steps to access this floor. These mezzanines are a trademark of the old very tall houses to make use of the space between 2 very high floors thereby infusing them with Old World charm.
And lastly, you are right in stating that guests do not have a key or magnetic card to open the front door. This is for security reasons and you will find that all the small boutique hotels and/or b & b's in the city operate the same way.
Once again we appreciate you having taken the time to point out your concerns and hope we have addressed them to your satisfaction. We hope to welcome you on your next visit and provide you with an unforgettable stay!
