One of the 110 most beautiful hotels in the world
(L'OFFICIEL VOYAGES, August 2008)

 

“You’ll get the feeling you’ve walked into a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel (the Nobel Prize-winning author still maintains a house in Cartagena). This restored 17th- centery home boats antiques and period furniture with few modern touches like Wi-Fi in its 11 rooms and suites and chrome barstools in the minimalist lobby bar: Of course no Marquez character ever had it so good, not with a sparkling ground-floor pool and a top-floor whirlpool.”

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, Traveler, edition January/February 2010

 

"The great charm in the palace of a count: 11 rooms with antique furniture and spa. The ultimate: the apartments of Casa Pombo (same owner)"
