The Casa Bustamante Hotel Boutique is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at and is located a few minutes walk from the old town walls. The hotel is just gorgeous, the rooms are off a lovely central area. A tasty choice of breakfast is served by the pool. We used the pool a couple of times and...

Casa Bustamante was an amazing find for our three day stay in Cartagena! The hotel is located less than 5 minutes from the wall to the old city and makes for a delightful place to relax while visiting the city. The staff were very helpful, especially Miguel. He was very attentive, always there to open the door when we arrived...

My husband was doubtful when we first checked in, but the reviews here do not lie. We had fantastic service from every staff we interacted with, down to ordering us a reputable, cheaper taxi driver (Sr. Joaquim). Great breakfast (that juice!!!!), convenient pool for a quick dip in the afternoon, proximity to the walled city, city beach nearby. Each room...

The hotel is wonderful in every way. It is small but has everything you need. Plus, there's a decent-sized swimming pool and garden to relax in after a day out and about in the heat of Cartagena. The staff were perfect for my needs - nice but not overbearing. If you ask for something they will help you but they...

This is a lovely, quiet place where you can relax by the pool when you are not exploring the walled city. The staff were wonderful. The rooms were well appointed. The showers had lots of hot water with a strong flow. Breakfast is included and it is excellent. Great place to stay.

We stayed seven nights at this hotel and it was very good. Staff were very helpful and friendly although most of them only spoke Spanish. We were able to get by with my limited Español and gestures. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were good although after a week we were ready for a change. Location is excellent -...

We stayed at this wonderful hotel for five nights, and highly recommend it. The room was large and comfortable. The grounds (pool, patio, etc.) are very nice for relaxing. Breakfast was delicious. But the best part was the staff, all of whom were super helpful and kind. Casa Bustamante is just a couple of blocks outside the old city so...

Well, it’s surely not the best luxury hotel of the town. But if you want to find a very nice place with a nice medium size swimming pool at reasonable price and 5 to 10 minutes away from the town, it’s really a big deal. There are only 6 rooms in this hotel. The area is very safe and very...

Nothing but good things to say about Casa Bustamante. Historic, intimate colonial home with six rooms surrounding a nicely appointed lobby/sitting area that opens to back patio with swimming pool and sitting area. Great staff, including Stephanie and Miguel, always there to be of assistance. Rooms are large, cool and comfortable. I was originally assigned one of the two closest...
