Housed in one of the oldest buildings in the walled city of Cartagena, the Casa Pombo is a prime example of the colonial splendor that made Cartagena famous and gave it its UNESCO World Heritage status. The house is divided into five spacious climate-controlled guest apartments, each with a balcony, seating area, cable television, and ample private bathroom.
High ceilings and light neutral tones lend the house an airy feel, and all of the apartments open onto the internal courtyard with its lush gardens and swimming pool. The lobby and black-and-white tiled lounge area are ensconced by the 16th-century stone arches of the house, providing a beautiful space in which to relax.
Guests hoping to soak in some Caribbean sun will be pleased to find that the roof terrace has a second swimming pool and can be accessed by elevator from the lobby or from any of the five apartments. Antique furniture fills the many spaces of the house and contributes to the feeling that guests are living part of the history of Cartagena.
