Cartagena is a Caribbean paradise with a mix of cultures to fall in love with. The historic walled city will transport you back to colonial times, while Bocagrande has the feel of modern Miami. Whether you want to take in the culture or sunbathe on the beach, Cartagena VIP offers private transportation to get you where you need to go.
Located across the street from Bocagrande’s bustling city beach, this mid-range Hotel Cartagena Plaza is built with young travellers in mind. The dated lobby has been redone with glitzy Hollywood-esque furniture, and the rooms are equipped with cool, locally inspired decor. A rooftop pool is popular with guests, and hotel staff host a variety of activities throughout the day. The hotel also provides free Wi-Fi, Xbox consoles in public areas, and plenty of “selfie corners” for travelers to snap pictures. If possible, upgrade to the executive floor for its private concierge and spacious rooms.
Rooms are simply decorated in white walls, with black furnishings adding a contrast. All have flat-screen TVs, and some offer balconies or terraces. Standard amenities include minibars (with paid items), electronic safes, and single-cup coffeemakers. Bathrooms are stocked with complimentary toiletries and feature glass-enclosed shower stalls.
The hotel has two on-site restaurants. Kasabe Fusion serves sushi and Asian fusion dishes, while La Place has a nightly dinner buffet that rotates between Italian, Mexican, or barbecue themes. The property also has a bar and a fitness center.
If you’d prefer to explore the city, there are a variety of bars, shops, and restaurants nearby. You’ll also be a short drive from the Walled City, which houses fascinating sights from the Sweets Gate to the Palace of the Inquisition. The beaches of Bocagrande are also a short walk away.
There is a full-service spa at the hotel, as well as an outdoor pool and a hot tub. Other amenities include a restaurant, a nightclub, and babysitting (surcharge). For added convenience, the hotel provides laundry facilities, a concierge, and an airport shuttle. City Concierge Cartagena
