Hotel Arzobispado

A Regal Vacay at Hotel Arzobispado

It's the palatial pool and sumptuous fittings that put this 10-bedroom mansion firmly in the luxury vacation bracket.

  • This is What We Love

    • Historic fixtures and fittings with contemporary comfort built in
    • Rooms that offer plenty of room to stretch out, cut a rug or swing a cat

    • The added privacy of having the entire place to yourself
    • Sundowners on the roof terrace with a winning view of the up-lit cupola of the cathedral opposite

    The generous bedrooms and spacious public areas are what makes it a popular bolthole for large families and big groups. 

    Ideal for those that want to be in the heart of Cartagena's historic centre, this delightful colonial villa sits on one of the city's most important streets, a short hop from the former governor's house and Cartagena's imperious cathedral. 

    It's been called home by some historic figures over the years, not least, Antonio José de Ayos, one of the martyrs that fought to liberate Cartagena from Spanish rule in 1811. 

    It's changed hands plenty of times since and has become an important staging post for political power brokers due to its strategic position between church and state. A number of historical figures have held the keys to the house's imposing oak doors.

     A delicious re-fit in 2002, preserved much of the historical houses' character with a rich, colonial style and some great original time pieces dotted throughout but there's more than enough contemporary flourish to meet the exacting standards of a modern brand of visiting VIP.

    The patio was given up almost entirely to one of the city's top swimming pools. 

    An embracing den sits in the shade flanking Casa Guanábana's central water feature ensuring guests can escape the fierce midday sun but keep the lazy, luxury poolside vibe going all day long.

     The rooms at ground level are for bed-heads that like to flop straight into the pool every day, while the more palatial suites can be found upstairs. 

    All of the rooms are more spacious than your average Cartagena boutique bolthole. 

    With 10 bedrooms in total, there are 12 beds but the extra space in each room means additional beds can be added to make it comfortable for groups of up to 15 people.

LOCATION

  • Centro

    Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city. 

    Centro has lost none of its importance thanks to the universal lure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area. 

    Cartagena's finest hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century. 

    The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze and first whiff of pirates. Today only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list can afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.
