Casa de Leda - a Kali Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Small wonderful hotel in the center of Santa Marta. Beautiful rooms, pool/spa, roof terrace with great views. Super friendly staff. nothing is too much. Very good breakfast and on request they also cook a tasty meal for you. We stayed there with two adults and two children (16 and 13 years old) and the room was big enough.

Our stay Casa de Leda was fantastic! The hotel is modern, clean and in a superb location, as it is close to the main shopping area and square with all the restaurants. Additionally, the hotel offers a great variety of breakfast options on their beautiful rooftop terrace. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was perfect, including a very modern shower.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Giovanni and Francesco were by far the most warm and willing to assist in any way possible. The hotel also held our bags for us overnight while we visited Parque Tayrona (well worthwhile).

If visiting the Santa Marta area, Casa de Leda is a must!

We got a last minute deal for one night. We weren't expecting too Michael as it was more of a stop gap on our way to Parque Tayrona, but it was amazing! Firstly the service was efficient, professional and friendly. The room (the hotels smallest one) was still bright and had space for everything we needed. The pool and steam room were such a welcome escape from the outside world and breakfast was great. It was so good I wanted to extend my stay in Santa Marta just so we could camp out in the hotel! I've stayed in boutique hotels that cost six times more and weren't as memorable. A lovely surprise find!

We are so happy you found us for your one night stay. We love sharing Casa de Leda with anyone who visits Santa Marta. You must have stayed in our Economy Room. It is a smaller room than most, but does not spare anything in terms of luxury and service, and is a great choice for people looking for the Kali Hotels experience at a nice discount. You may also want to check out Villa Maria, our jungle retreat just nearby the main entrance to Tayrona National Park. Thanks!

We stayed a few nights at this hotel which was great.
Staff all helpful, and polite, some speak better english than others (but we were able to communicate fine). Francisco was especially helpful, always eager to help with various queries and a hard worker.
Our room was on the first floor, clean and spacious with high ceilings, air con, ceiling fan, wifi. There was a modern rain shower with very good pressure and hot water.
Breakfast was served on the roof, which was good (fruit + a choice from the menu + drink). Perhaps a few more options on the breakfast menu would make it better.
Location is good, central but quiet and a short walk from the sea front.
Our only complaint is that their laundry service was very expensive so we didnt use it, instead we went to a local laundry shop.
We found price good value for money.
If visiting Santa Marta we would definetely stay at this hotel again.

Thank you so much for this review. We pride ourselves on maintaining a quality English-speaking reception, as well as dedicated staff in all departments. Francisco has seen your post and greatly appreciates the mention. As we do not have laundry facilities in the hotel, we refer to the prices for local cleaners. We are always happy to show our guests the nearby laundromats for per pound service. We hope you make it back to Santa Marta sometime soon!

Really nice hotel. Small, well-located, super cute, and the rooms are amazing. See the pics on their website! The hotel is even better than that. It is a hotel spa, so not the best for kids, but otherwise excellent. Great service and friendly people throughout.

Room Tip: Not the best for kids.

Thank you so much for this review. We greatly appreciate your mention of the photos. We designed the hotel as work of art in itself, with many of the spaces flowing into one another. The photos represent our best attempt to capture that feeling, but nothing replaces experiencing it for yourself! We hope to see you again sometime.

This is an excellent hotel. The rooms are fantastic. The food is quality. Great views and very helpful and trustworthy staff. Situated in the lively town of Santa Marta, this hotel is a must. Jacob specifically was a great help and recommended a great diving centre. I had a fantastic stay there and would recommend it to anyone. Much Gracias Hotel Casa De Leda.

We stayed in this hotel for one night before our adventure with "the lost city trek" and also on our way back from that adventure for 2 more nights!!

This hotel is a delight! It is beautiful and all the staff are so helpful and lovely!! The customer service was simply outstanding! Giovanni and his cocktails and meals, Francisco and his breakfast, and all the boys at reception were awesome! It was very helpful to be able to leave our luggage stored at reception while we did our trek!

This was a perfect break for us, we went to Santa Marta only to be able to visit the lost city, and we did love that experience, but we didn't really get excited about the beaches in Santa Marta (we come from Australia where the beaches are super) however we would love to comeback to Santa Martha just to stay in this gorgeous hotel.

All the decor, the pool, the rooms were beautifully designed and renovated, the location of this hotel was also very convenient! Right in the heart of Santa Marta, on a very quiet street but just a stroll away from the touristic old city and the party and the restaurants. The only regret is that we didn't stay any longer to rest and enjoy this awesome hotel, as our itinerary was very tight. Well done to all the team!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa de Leda is the newest addition to Kali Hotels. Its luxurious and relaxing spa complements each room's unique and grand style. First owned by a wealthy family of Santa Marta's golden age, the original house where Casa de Leda sits dates back to the late 19th century. While most of that house no longer stands, we salvaged its original fluted columns, facade, and floor tiling. In this remodeling, as with Casa de Isabella, we consistently chose classical style, maintaining the building's original integrity whenever possible. With Casa de Leda, we proudly present a full service boutique hotel and spa. Spacious rooms under vaulted ceilings give way to open bathrooms with plenty of natural light. The open terrace, flanked by cascades of green vines and equipped with a cooling mist system, overlooks the Santa Marta Cathedral. Each room includes an aromatherapy kit, and some have in-room hot tubs. Flat screen TVs in every room have media players with music stations and video libraries. We also provide free WiFi, international calling, and breakfast cooked-to-order. ... more   less
