After being in the jungle for 5 days and staying in meager accommodations this was just what I needed. The service was good and the rooms were very nice. Especially the bathroom! The price was good as well for what you were getting in SA. I would recommend this hotel if you're wanting a comfortable stay for a decent price.

This place is a colorful and peaceful sanctuary from the busy and hot streets in summer time. The staff is helpful and accommodating. Breakfast area is pleasant in the atrium space with hot coffee and fruits and a few hot items to choose from. We had a suite room which means a small private pool. Great views of mountains and...

Everything worked well and we had no complaints! We were sharing a twin room with an amazing shower. The staff were particularly concerned to ensure that the temperature in the room was comfortable and we were confident using the air conditioning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa de Isabella pays homage to the charm and history of Santa Marta's colonial era while ushering in a future rich in culture and beauty. Founded in 1525, Santa Marta is Colombia's oldest city. Its natural port provided a refuge from long journeys on Spanish galleons, and its position on the north coast allowed explorers to use it as a base camp for trips to the interior. Casa de Isabella sits in the Centro Historico, the Old City of Santa Marta. This area, first developed after the Manzanares river receded in 1850, holds buildings that reflect traditional Mudejar architecture. The building's original owners inhabited the house for four generations and contributed significantly to the city's growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. In renovating the hotel for the modern era, we consistently chose classic style, maintaining the original integrity of the building and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guests feel the simplicity of Santa Marta's natural charm while enjoying modern comforts. From the greenery of the courtyard to the intimacy of a personal rooftop pool, Casa de Isabella fuses the tranquility of Colombian culture with top quality hotel conveniences. With lighting fast Wi-Fi, complimentary I-Pads, and Apple TV, as well as restored furniture and handmade adornments, this hotel stays anchored in tradition while looking ahead toward a bright future. We have proudly renovated the most beautiful boutique hotel in the Colombian Caribbean. ... more   less
