We stayed at Casa D'Isabella for a night in March 2012. It is a great little hotel only a couple of minutes walk from the best parts of central Santa Marta.
The rooms are very nice and are equipped with mosquito nets (fitted to the four poster beds), iPod docks and Apple TV, amongst other touches. The hotel also has a small swimming pool which was very welcoming after a long, hot day travelling and sightseeing!
Breakfast was decent and the level of service in the hotel was fantastic - the staff on reception were very happy to help out with sourcing taxis to a variety of locations for us and ensuring that we weren't overcharged.
If you're visiting Santa Marta, Casa D'Isabella would be an excellent choice for a place to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa de Isabella pays homage to the charm and history of Santa Marta's colonial era while ushering in a future rich in culture and beauty. Founded in 1525, Santa Marta is Colombia's oldest city. Its natural port provided a refuge from long journeys on Spanish galleons, and its position on the north coast allowed explorers to use it as a base camp for trips to the interior. Casa de Isabella sits in the Centro Historico, the Old City of Santa Marta. This area, first developed after the Manzanares river receded in 1850, holds buildings that reflect traditional Mudejar architecture. The building's original owners inhabited the house for four generations and contributed significantly to the city's growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. In renovating the hotel for the modern era, we consistently chose classic style, maintaining the original integrity of the building and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guests feel the simplicity of Santa Marta's natural charm while enjoying modern comforts. From the greenery of the courtyard to the intimacy of a personal rooftop pool, Casa de Isabella fuses the tranquility of Colombian culture with top quality hotel conveniences. With lighting fast Wi-Fi, complimentary I-Pads, and Apple TV, as well as restored furniture and handmade adornments, this hotel stays anchored in tradition while looking ahead toward a bright future. We have proudly renovated the most beautiful boutique hotel in the Colombian Caribbean. ... more less
