Overview

The Casa San Agustin is a boutique hotel in the walled city of Cartagena, a UNESCO heritage site on Colombia’s Caribbean Coast. The 17th-century property still retains historic architectural features -- think high ceilings, wood beams and an aqueduct in the pool courtyard -- but with modern touches and locally sourced furnishings.

Ringed by the town's 400-year-old walls, the hotel is surrounded by museums such as the Museo de Arte Moderno (Colombian modern art) and the Palacio de la Inquisición. Don't miss the impregnable Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, described by Lonely Planet as "the greatest and strongest fortress ever built by the Spaniards." It's 20 minutes away on foot; go early in the day, before it gets too hot. In the evening, the neighborhood of Getsemani, just outside the city walls, is good for lively salsa bars and local restaurants.

The property’s Alma restaurant is a "definitive highlight," says the Architectural Digest. The menu features local classics, such as home-cured beef and bouillabaisse, with an Asian slant. Meals can be taken in the dining room or by the L-shaped pool. There’s also a cozy bar, serving cocktails, ceviche and conch croquettes, and a rooftop solarium.

Spread across three white-washed colonial buildings that were former residences, the rooms are large and have airy interiors, antique furniture and hand-painted tiles in the bathrooms. Views are over the hotel gardens or the Old Town streets, and some rooms have balconies. Upgraded rooms feature private plunge pools or Jacuzzis and families can be accommodated in inter-connecting rooms and suites. Extra freebies include twice daily housekeeping, nightly turndown and a welcome cocktail on arrival.

From the press:
  • "Dozens of small hotels aim to bring the charm of what's outside in. Casa San Agustín does it authentically" -- Condé Nast Traveler
  • "Along with the sexy hideaway vibe and relaxed-luxury style … the hotel's biggest plus is the central location, which gives guests easy on-foot access to the vibrant Old Town" -- Frommer's
