Although the neighborhood surrounding Casa De Isabella is not exactly an attractive sight to tourists, the place itself is another story. Once you pass its main gates (closed to the public) you enter into another entire atmosphere accentuated by a mix of colonial architecture and middle- eastern decorations and ambience. The service is courteous and friendly and the staff caters to you every need. The rooms are decorated in a simple but yet exquisite manner and style and the addition of Apple-TV is indeed a nice complement to the room. The breakfast which is included in the stay has a very diverse menu that includes everything from American breakfast to typical delicacies of the region. In contrast to many other establishments, all of the rooms at Casa De Isabella are located in the rear and away from all of the street noise.
Casa de Isabella is centrally located and many attractions are within walking distance including ‘Parque de los Novios’ – Lover’s Park. This is the best place for dinning. The bay and the beach are also nearby although ‘El Rodadero’ (30 min. by bus) would be a better place to go and relax by the beach. Overall, our stay at Casa de Isabella was a very pleasant one.
- 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
