Best hotel in Cartagena
Such an amazing hotel. The location is amazing and the service was great. The bed also was super comfortable and the whole hotel is so chic and stylish. Quiet and private rooftop pool and the food they had there was some of the best we had in Colombia (try the ceviche!) The included breakfast is also fantastic. One of my favourite hotels of all time!! We will definitely stay with Amarla again when we are back

What a gorgeous gem the Amarla turned out to be!!! The lobby area is gorgeous and serene. The rooftop offers a gorgeous view, nice sized pool, plentiful seating and eating areas and an herbal garden! The room was comfy for two. Beds and linens were soft. The made-to-order breakfast, which was included, was delicious and fresh! The location is perfect for sightseeing, shopping and evening strolls to many wonderful restaurants. I would love to come back and stay here again and again.

Absolutely gorgeous and the suite was the most beautiful place I’ve ever slept in! And the softest beds, we all slept like babies! Breakfast was phenomenal and the staff was gracious and attentive. I highly recommend Amarla to anyone visiting Cartagena.

Best of all worlds
I ended up staying here last minute when I got to Cartagena. I was in another hotel that was beautiful but too loud at night. Amarla was the perfect combo of being central but quiet, affordable, clean, and beautiful. It is small so there isn’t a ton of people - good for COVID. Breakfast was delicious, staff was accommodating, and pillow top bed was one of the best I’ve ever had. And I have stayed many places with luxury. I extended my stay to stay in the hotel an extra night because it was so good!

Great property—well kept, super amenities & attentive staff. Ruby at the front desk was amazing! It felt like we were staying in our home and the staff looked out for us 24/7. The view from rooftop is a 10. Food prepared there for us was also very good. I highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again.

Hotel is centrally located in the old city, within walking distance to everything. Staff was helpful and friendly - even prior to our arrival they helped with all our restaurant reservations. The hotel is very tastefully decorated - the photos don’t do it justice. We stayed in the duplex suite and loved the room - though strangely enough the hotel housekeeping used part of the living room in our suite for their storage and would come in whilst we were in the room to access their things. Which was a little odd and could have been intrusive to some, but we didn’t mind. The kitchen is currently under reconstruction so breakfast has to be pre-ordered and made in a neighbouring kitchen. This sometimes meant delays in getting our breakfast but the staff was very apologetic and it really wasn’t their fault. Overall we had a great time at the hotel and would highly recommend it.

Mansion-like Property With Personal Attentive Care
We had an absolutely wonderful stay, this is a small boutique hotel with only 6 rooms, a gorgeous lobby with open air atriums, restoration hardware style furnishings mixed with local Colombian art. The staff is attentive to each and every detail, breakfast is made to order by a wonderful kitchen crew (try the local options, you won't regret it). Ed the General Manager goes above and beyond to arrange anything you need, cars, tours, etc or just point out spots on the map. We were there on Colombian Independence Day and Gay Pride, so needless to say the city was filled with visitors and getting into restaurants was impossible on FRI/SAT nights, but Ed & Francisco made phone calls and even personally walked us to restaurants, speaking to the managers to ensure we got a table. First class service. There's also a wonderful rooftop pool with plenty of lounging spaces. We will DEF be recommending this to friends and look forward to a return in the future.
