Sofitel Santa Clara

Cartagena

The Sofitel Legend Santa Clara combines the best of both worlds. This is a contemporary hotel in a colonial chic style. The original Spanish 17th-century architecture has been reworked to the highest level, so expect designer touches, unparalleled service and glistening gold leaf tapestry. No stone has been left unturned in this world class hotel.

OUR RATING:

Why we recommend it:

  • CONTEMPORARY, COLONIAL CHIC
  • A 1621 MONASTERY CONVERTED INTO THE BEST HOTEL IN TOWN
  • THE LARGEST SWIMMING POOL IN THE OLD TOWN
  • STAFF AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS SUPERB

THE STYLE

THE DETAIL

The Santa Clara was built in 1621 as a convent for the Nuns, though it still retains all of its colonial style and most of the building’s original features remain. The hotel blends all of the past with tropical plants that are a common feature throughout the hotel, giving it that wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The hotel also boasts the largest swimming pool in the historical centre!

The historical structure has of course lent itself attractively to the room’s design. All have those high ceilings, the sort you get in large Georgian mansions and are adorned with Colombian furnishings, interweaved with the local colourful character.

The 139 rooms are split between the colonial area in the traditional convent building, and the republican area in the converted hospital. All come with white washed walls, wooden flooring and private balconies. You get a little more space when you go from their entry level room (Classic room with 345 2q ft) to their superior room (366 square feet) and the cost difference is worth the jump. Next step up are their luxury rooms, which are larger still and then their junior suites and suites, which are on the top floor, overlooking the pool to maximise views of the Caribbean.
