Had an outstanding stay with some colleagues on a weekend away from Bogota. Right next to the very cool Trinidad Plaza, but enough distance to avoid noise pollution and heavy traffic. Very professional and responsive manager. The pool was a nice perk! Will definitely book again.
This home is perfectly located. You can walk to anywhere in The Old City from here. Music and cafes and restaurants are right around the corner.
The pictures reflect the home perfectly. The air conditioning worked very well in bedrooms and the Internet connection was strong. The pool was perfect!
We felt very safe next to the police station. In fact, we felt safe everywhere in the Old City.
Only negatives: Water was a bit of a problem--we had difficulty getting hot water for showers. Not many comfortable chairs or couches at the home inwhich to lounge. No TV.
The kitchen was ample size and perfectly stocked!
Overall, I would highly recommend! We loved our stay!
My family and I stayed at the Casa Sofia, and what a gem and comfort we discovered! The house is meticulously kept and artfully decorated. The swimming pool which is where we spent most our time was extremely clean and warm. The rooms were spacious and beds very comfortably. The kitchen was absolutely spectacular and fully equipped. One gets the feeling that you are indoors and outdoors at the same time as the house opens up to the pool.
While lost in history and this spectacular house, we were able to access fast internet at house an tune in to carribean and Latin music through nice speakers throughout the house.
The house is a short walk to all important places to see. At night, we walked to all the restaurants and bars of the historic town. The house is also in up and coming neighborhood that has kept its neighborhood charm.
Casa Sofia was a great find and we highly recommend. Thank you for a memorable hospitality. We recommend this to all our friends in the Gulf.
My family had a wonderful time during Semana Santa in Cartagena staying at Casa Sofia. The house is so beautiful and also practical - we had three generations living peacefully and in great comfort, with a full kitchen to help us keep costs down!
We are familiar with Colombia but this trip showed us the Old City as never before. We could walk out our door and be part of the Gethsemani neighborhood of ordinary families, hostels and other rentals - a mix which made gathering in the plaza near the house a fascinating people-watching experience. We also could walk to the more touristic part of the Old City, and visit the museums there. Five minutes away was the beach. Having the police hostel next door was a nice security bonus!

Spent Xmas with wife and 3 young adult kids in Cartagena. Weather was perfect. City is still not discovered by the average North American tourist so not overwhelmed with that crowd. Casa's location is in Gethsemani, just outside the 'old walls' which allowed for experiencing local culture yet still a 5-10 minute walk to the old city. Villa is nice but a little disconcerting with its' location next to a police station. Lot's of noise outside which took some getting used to. Great local restaurants and bars that are more reasonable than the old city. Would recommend Cartagena and the "casa" to those interested in a little different experience than going to 'another Caribbean island'.
