Casa Canabal


    The details

    Not many people seem to know about Casa Canabal. And they should. Maybe it's the name that piques one's interest, confusedly. What could the name possibly mean? No, it's nothing to do with Cannibals. 

    The hotel was named after colonial era presidential contender Eusebio María Canabal, a prominent doctor who signed the independence act of 1811. He lived on same street as the hotel. 

    You get the feeling Canabal would've loved his modern namesake. A gorgeous sanctuary-type hotel fusing Cartagena's trademark stone columns with lush verdant vines suspended above a clear blue swimming pool. 

    Cool serenity is the key comfort to this spacious hotel (a grand 3200 sq m) - a welcome relief from the colourful yet bustling street outside. The large rooftop terrace encompasses not only two gazebos but also a sub terrace for romantic meals. The stylish spot is the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun with your made-to-order cocktail. 

    The rooms don't disappoint, imbuing relaxation with earthy tones of creams, cinnamon and chocolate. All three room options (Suite, Junior Suite and Standard) have generous showers in stellar bathrooms. 

    The Suites (201 & 210) offer the best deal at Casa Canabal - you can people-watch the motley street scenes from your balcony, whilst enjoying a spacious living room area leading up to a cosy loft for two. The large couches downstairs can sleep two extra people.
    This Is What We LOVE:

    *The extremely friendly staff who will go the extra mile to help you out.
    * The local flavour kitchen. Its all about Costeña food here!
    * There are great cheap eats on your doorsteps.
    * Free Wi-Fi.
    *Spacious and quiet chillout areas including a spa with sauna and Jacuzzi.
    What you need to KNOW:

    * The terrace is a great place to relax but don't expect a tremendous view.
    * The street outside can get busy with traffic and people but thankfully the hotel interiors allow you to escape the noise.
    *The swimming pools are inviting but 50 lengths won't have too much of an impact on the wasteline.
