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 Colombia 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 Portal 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 Capilla 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 Colombian 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.

Customer Service
By Janis.996
Overall my hotel experience was excellent especially the food and services. I only have two complaints: The first being that upon check-in I was told that I would be charged the full amount of my [More] stay per company policy, however when I reserved the room on-line it stated, clearly, that I would be charged for the first night stay and would pay the remainder upon check-out. This full charge on check is apparently not the policy as another gentleman next to me checking out was paying for his stay at the end. I do not appreciate any discrimination or inconsistencies in policy. Secondly, despite the privacy sign / do not disturb sign, being hung on the door. A staff membered entered the room and placed a letter on the bed advising I could call for service. I feel that the note should have been slipped under the door as per the request of privacy. [Less]
Great Place to Stay
By Frank NYC
Food was really good, staff had excellent knowledge of the area and made wonderful recommendations of where to visit and where to go for dinner, I think the only draw backs were the comfort of the [More] bed and the cable channels, should be more English channels or at least more options. [Less]

I have traveled the world for that last 37 years, as an airline employee on pleasure travel. The Intercontinental properties are, by far, the best. My room, or should I say Suites was amazing and [More] beyond words. As an Ambassador Member, I was greeted my name everyday.
