    Hotel Casa La Fe's British owner, Geoff Chew took a punt on life in the jewel in the crown of Colombia's Caribbean coast seven years ago, pouring a lifetime of engineering skills into transforming one of the finest Republican properties in San Diego into this award-winning boutique hotel.

    Serving up a calm and relaxed atmosphere laced with a very British criterion, the hotel benefits from its close proximity to some of Cartagena's best restaurants.

    From the comfort of your own balcony witness the ongoing transformation of one of the Plazas that inspired Gabriel Garcia Marquez to write his masterpiece Love in the Time of Cholera, the Nobel Laureate's work most closely associated with the history of Cartagena.

    This Bona Fide property dates from the Republican Era and in true keeping with the hotel's devoted moniker was faithfully restored to its former glory in 2005.

    A few modern flourishes were added to keep the customers sweet including a rooftop pool and terrace that works wonders for a little rest and recuperation.

    Casa La Fe and its visionary owner has featured in the New York Times, Monocle and the Times and Chew has even become one of the faces of Colombia's the only risk is wanting to staycampaign.

LOCATION

  • San Diego

    A healthy mix of sub-cultures makes San Diego one of the most interesting and varied districts in the city, something reflected in its diverse gastronomic offering.

    San Diego is formed by 16 blocks north of Calle de la Universidad de Cartagena and west of Calle San Agustin and Calle de la Moneda and stretches to the Baluarte de Santa Catalina and the walls that protect the city to the north. 

    Architecturally the houses are smaller and were built principally for the military, artisans and clergy. There are fewer of the two-or three-storey holiday homes for the ultra-rich that characterize the centre and you will still find traditional families living in some of the more modest houses in this part of town. 

    After Cartagena's moneyed classes swapped the claustrophobic centre for expansive mansions in Manga and later Bocagrande and Castillogrande in the mid-19th century it took the renovation of the former Santa Clara Monastery, converted for the hotel chain Sofitel into the city's pre-eminent hotel in 1995, to put this barrio back on the map. 

    Colombia's farandula, or celebrity set, has since colonized San Diego including John Leguizamo who bought a place here after filming Mike Nichols' Love in the Time of Cholera.
