The Review

From the moment you walk through the doors of Casona del Colegio, you are greeted by the smiling faces of an attentive & genuine staff ready to make your stay perfection, all while engulfed in the stunning beauty of modern Colombian architecture & design. The Casona del Colegio hotel is not simply a hotel and restaurant, it is an oasis of biodiversity in the form of living space, and it is a true work of art – a perfect fusion of cultural preservation and re-imagination.  Each intricately designed luxury room, suite and space within the walls of Casona, offers an elegant & peaceful getaway, from the bustling city just outside it’s welcoming doors.


Its centralize location in the heart of the historic walled city is perfect for morning, afternoon or night strolls through the city streets, where you’ll be swept away into a past life of colorful Colonial architecture. Enjoy the local artisan boutiques and street vendors, just steps outside your door. Or if you’re looking simply for a tranquil getaway or a romantic retreat, everything you need is under their exceptionally designed roof.  Spend the day relaxing in the rooftop pool with a delicious cocktail, or enjoy a much-needed massage in their world-class spa. 


Indulge in the delicious flavors of the hotel’s renowned restaurant.  Once you’ve tasted just one single dish from kitchens of Costa restaurant, and the mind of their young & talented chef, you may find the desire to eat anywhere else in the city a fleeting thought.  Every item on the menu is created with purpose and soul, with intentions of sharing the exquisite flavors of Colombia with all who sit at their table.

Staying at Casona del Colegio is a true 360 Colombian experience, designed by Columbian hearts & crafted by Colombian hands.  This is the soul of Cartagena de Indias in the form of an art deco luxury hotel.
