A 5 minute walk from the old city in the Getsamani area of Cartajena. Smells great like the allure of chocolate from the moment you walk in.......and they even have 4 o5 fragrances to choose from the way you would like your room to smell. The rooms are nice, modern and clean. There is a rooftop pool and it's quite...

The Chocolat Hotel did not disappoint and in fact, was more than we had expected. Very comfortable, inexpensive, good value and the best breakfasts we had in Colombia so far in our 3 weeks of traveling. The room was very comfortable (though a bit small) and the choice of a fragrance for the room was a nice touch.The staff was...

I visited this hotel for my birthday and I have no words to describe how good it was! From the check in to the breakfast, the lovely maid and the bartender, everything and everyone was so nice. If I come back to Cartagena, I will stay here again. :)

From the moment we entered to when we left, the hotel and staff went above and beyond our expectations. This is definitely a beautiful spot - the lobby, the rooms, and especially the rooftop pool were all stunning. Paola in the front was such a gem.

We stayed five nights at this place not only because of the almost unanimously good reviews. The location is just perfect as the historic center is just a five minute walk away. Several clubs are literally next door and there are a lot of small bars, cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood of Getsemaní. The hotel staff was very friendly...
