THE DETAIL

Each of their eight en-suite bedrooms are specifically dedicated to the most important periods of Cartagena’s history, from the time of the conquistadors to the historic battle of independence. The two floors are divided into 4 Standard single/double/twin rooms, 2 Junior Suites, 1 Suite & 1 Family Room (it is a small apartment with 2 rooms and 2 private bathrooms).

The Conquest Room: This room is decorated in honour to Pedro de Heredia, who founded the city on the 1st of June 1533

Indigenous Room: When the Spaniards arrived they met the Carib tribes who inhabited this region. They lived in palm huts, slept in hammocks and painted his body with achiote.

The Colony Room: During the colonial era Cartagena was one of the largest ports in America. From here the treasures were shipped to the Spanish Crown

The Pirates Room: Attracted by the treasures that came from Cartagena to Spain, the city was attacked several times by both English and French pirates.

The Independence Room: This room is dedicated to the men that on 11th November, 1811 gave in Cartagena the final declaration of absolute independence from Spain.

St. Peter Claver room: Cartagena was once the largest slave market in the New World. San Pedro Claver, a Jesuit priest made a heroic and selfless ministry in defense of the slaves.

The Viceroyalty suite: This suite is inspired by the historical period from the Viceroyalty of New Granada (1718-1819).

The Republic suite: During the republican period (1863 -1903) President Rafael Nuñez, a native of Cartagena, was the main driving force that unified a fragmented country.
