Featured Cartagena Hotels

An unforgettable vacation awaits in Cartagena, a coastal Caribbean city with cobblestone streets, fabulous beaches, world-class restaurants, historic places and outstanding entertainment. Set in sunny, tropical weather, Cartagena hotels are some of the finest in Columbia and cater year-round to an energetic international crowd.

Things to See

Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of its most popular attractions is the walled-off Old Town, an area with a 16th-century Spanish ambiance attained from several architectural gems. Here you’ll find 400-year-old plazas, meticulously maintained Colonial-era mansions, stunning, 300-year-old fortresses, plus historic churches and museums.

Head downtown and stop to marvel at the massive Puerta del Reloj (“clock gate”), which is the entry point to Plaza de Los Coches square. Stroll and shop for Colombian chocolates and sweets at Portos de Los Dulces, then visit La Plaza de San Pedro to admire fine art at the renowned Museo de Arte Moderno, or military exhibits at Cartagena Naval Museum. At Plaza de Bolivar you can walk through La Biblioteca Bartolome Calvo, Cartagena's most important library, then gazing at the 450-year-old Iglesia/Claustro Santa Domingo church, before pausing to enjoy lunch at a sidewalk café in the Plaza Santa Domingo.

For further exploration, travel by taxi to La Popa, the city's highest point, or spend a day on lower ground at Las Islas del Rosario, Cartagena's national park, surrounded by pristine beaches, coral reefs, and sapphire water. The islands are about 28 miles from the city, but you should be able to book a boat easily through your hotel or the Muelle Turistico harbor. Be sure to include a trip to the Acuario San Martin for a dolphin show.

Hotels in Cartagena

Cartagena hotels range from sleek, modern skyscrapers and luxurious high-end beach resorts to boutique rooms in historic buildings. As Colombia's top honeymoon destination, Cartagena also has plenty romantic bed and breakfasts, and hotels catering to new couples. You'll even find refined Colonial hotels in Cartagena if you’re looking for a truly singular stay.

December and January are exceptionally busy; consider booking your hotel well in advance if you're planning to visit during these months. Also consider booking outside of the period between mid-October throughout November, to avoid having your vacation impacted by seasonal flooding.

Where to Stay

Most foreign tourists prefer staying in Old Town when visiting Cartagena. The backpacking Bohemian crowd might prefer staying in burgeoning, budget-friendly Getsemani, the inexpensive outer-walled city, while Capila del Mar is favored by beach lovers wanting the convenience of an all-inclusive resort or luxurious oceanfront hotel.

How to Get to Cartagena

Rafael Nunez Airport is just two miles from Old Town Cartagena. Bus transportation may be ideal if you’re traveling from another Columbian city, although for comfort’s sake you may want to spend the extra cash for a plane ticket if coming from Medellin or Bogota, which are 13 hours and 20 hours away via ground transportation, respectively.

Once in Cartagena, you'll find exploring the city on foot is a great way to get around, particularly in Old Town. Taxis are best if you plan to explore popular sites and attractions outside the area. You can also find great tourist information at La Plaza de la Aduana, and the Torre del Reloj to help make your Cartagena getaway an amazing experience.

Surprising Quality - Great Value - Great Hotel
By PlannerJH96
I was pleasantly surprised by the level of the finishes for what I typically perceive to be a value brand. This hotel exceeded my expectations and will likely become my new "home" when traveling to [More] Cartagena for business. I was very pleased with the service, room comfort, quietness, convenience of the location and the restaurant which offered some great typical Cartagenian meals, along with typical hotel fare. The only negatives were there were some minor cleanliness issues with the bathroom (a minor urine splash spot on the floor next to my toilet and a little caulk mold in the shower). Also, I couldn't believe how stiff the towels were, which were apparently starched? I will say that the shower was great with good pressure, a great shower head and consistent temperature....much better than what I usually get in other business hotels in Latin America! [Less]
Awesome Staff and great service
By Yesid
Room was very comfortable with a great view. everyone was ready to make our visit a memorable one and they did...did not find anything or anyone out of place and that is the way we like it...the [More] grill outside ready to make one of our meals was unexpected but very welcomed and the result was beyond all Holiday Inn Cartagena will be the place for My Wife and I to stay while in Cartagena and we can only hope that time will fly so we can get back and enjoy it all over again.. [Less]
Bed and room stuff good, A/C bad. People kind. Food bad.
It is a decent hotel but the experience wasn't worth for the room value. The breakfast does not represent the typical Colombian Caribbean breakfast, in quality and options. The A/C has limited [More] options and like in our case it didn't work properly in the two rooms we had. People were kind!!!! [Less]
7 (SEVEN) Stars
By Diamondtime
I cant say enough of the quality of room and quality of people at this hotel. I stay all over the world and have found Colombia's Cartagena Intercontinental to be the best. Its not just the perfect [More] accommodations its the people. They've earned my business and loyalty. [Less]
Good value, but service can be improved
By Reggie555
IC Cartagena's been open 8 months now, but it's still a soft opening. The Club Lounge isn't complete, they don't have a pillow menu, and a lot of the wait staff need additional training. That said, [More] it's a brand new hotel, so the property looks great and the pool is stunning. The room's nice, but felt a little paintings on the wall, no clock, and most importantly, no pillow menu. The only pillow option they offered was too thick and too huge. My neck was practically at a 90 degree angle. I couldn't use the pillow. Back to the positives, the concierge team was phenomenal. Sergio was very informative and Jadder made some wonderful dining recommendations. Claudio, the manger of the restaurants, was also very caring and professional. He had only been on the job a week, and I'm sure he's working to improve the wait staff, who were a little slow. [Less]

We returned to Cartagena after 35 years for an anniversary celebration. the hotel choice was great if you don't mind being out of the old walled city. the property was beautiful, service excellent , [More] good beach location. [Less]
Good location
By Andy0317
Great location near the beach ant the Historic Center. The pool is bigger than the average which was nice. [Less]
We will be back
By Sergio16
Great experience, even with the first january crowd. I had an allergy attack (not caused by the room) and the hotel provides a free and excellent medical visit. Great bed and air conditioning [More] equipment. No hair dryer, but a safe deposit box in the room. Functional pool and a massage that worth its price. [Less]
Great Sevice
