“The finest hotel Cartagena has to offer”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We stayed here for our visit in mid August and were blown away by the attention to detail and service in this hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly, always greeting you with a smile! As noted in an earlier review, they have done a major remodel with Restoration Hardware furniture within the bedrooms and common areas. The pool is the perfect oasis to relax and enjoy the beauty of Cartagena during hot days. Not to be overlooked is the complimentary breakfast each morning which provides a great start to the day.
Proximity to restaurants are key, same block as Don Juan and Maria restaurant. Also, they arranged a very nice tour for us to Islas del Rosaria where we were able to enjoy the white sand beaches and crystal clear waters.
We will definitely be returning to Casa del Coliseo on our next visit!

The best of this hotel is the staff which tried to accomodate every request. In our case they extended the breakfast time and also the checkout time. The hotel is very pretty, breakfast is included in the price and the location is fantastic. Walking distance to Plaza Santo Domingo.

Worth noticing is that the hotel is divided in four (large) apartments with approx 3 romos per apartment , and a gorgeous and large dining/living room. Would be great to travel with a group of friends and rent the whole apartment. In our case we just booked a room, which was very private, silent and had two small balconies to the street.

My only complain is that the pool was not working during the weekend of our stay. We tried to go on saturday and they told us they were cleaning it, and same thing happened sunday. It was a pitty because it looks great. I expected them to offer some sort of compensation for it (maybe the breakfast empanadas or something) but they didn't, and to be fair I did not ask for it. The hotel is quite new, so although it is good, I do think that the staff is still figuring out how to handle certain situations or requests.

Would definitely visit again, but would make sure that the pool is actually working.

Room Tip: Corner romos are nicer, the level of noise is fine.

This hotel is just so wonderful, it is perfect to a person who wants to relax and enjoy the beauty of Cartagena. The people there are so understanding and kind with you, they really know how to treat people. The pool is just wonderful and that you can have a BBQ there with no problem. The location is perfect where you can just go a few streets and they are restaurants and historical places.

We had a wonderful stay here - the hotel is a beautifully restored colonial building with elegant furnishings and interior design - large spacious common areas, tastefully decorated rooms with a large bathroom and wonderful walk-in shower, a lovely roof-top pool and place to sit and soak up the sun or look at the night sky. Rooms are quiet despite being in the heart of the old city. The staff are very courteous and accommodating and went over and above what is expected in helping us make travel arrangements. HIghly recommended.

Casa del Coliseo is an amazing hotel, we stayed here for 5 nights, the staff received us very nice, we arrived in the morning and the room was ready, the design of the hotel is amazing, the rooms and the rooftop pool are delightful, the location is great, close to good restaurants ( I loved Don Juan) and stores, I felt like home.

Definitely the best hotel in Cartagena is Casa del Coliseo.

Thank you for everything.
