    Historical Gem!

    By far one of the best hotels in the world! Established in 400 years old mansion, the space is very unique and simply gorgeous. With high celings and historic decor, it holds a wide collection of black contemporary art, vintage books and high quality furnishings. Hotel stuff go far beyond their responsibilities. Adding little touches like fresh and adding a little marble rock on my papers so they don’t fly away! Real plants and white candles in the evenings create majestic vibe you never want to leave. Every element in the hotel is thought out. Breakfast is delicious and overall service is first class. The location is in the heart of Cartagena’s historical neighborhood. We extend our one night booking to 10 days at Casa del Coliseo! Impeccable.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Our initial room on the 2nd floor was way too noisy from street noise and in the bathroom we could hear people talking from the next room. They quickly changed the room and then the 2nd night upgraded us to a fantastic room. The common areas for eating breakfast and relaxing were lovely and the breakfast was delicious. Staff was incredibly helpful.

    What a Gem!

    What a little gem of a boutique in the heart of Cartagena's old city! We stayed three nights at family-owned and run Casa del Coliseo in a suite with balconies looking out over Calle del Porvenir. Service was impeccable, whether on arrival, at breakfast or at the pool later in the day where it was nice to cool off after a day of exploring the sights in Centro and Getsemani. The hotel also arranged a massage for my wife in our room and pickup and drop-off at the airport. The room was huge, with dark wood beamed high ceiling, king-sized bed and one of the largest showers I have ever seen with double rain shower heads. Prices were modest. I highly recommend.
