Casa Cuba


    The details

    Bogotá-based architects, Meteoro Estudio, have added a touch of contemporary chic to the celebrated colonial good looks of Cartagena, the sixteenth century Spanish fortress on Colombia's Caribbean coast.

    Edgar Morales and Bernardo Londoño's debut in Cartagena pits two hundred year old walls against scarlet, modernist furniture and vibrant hand-made tiles in a bold floral motif.

    It's not really a hotel as such, more a classy bolthole rented to friends and a few in-the-know visitors. It's pretty cool though and has already featured in the pages of trendsetting magazines like Wallpaper*.

    Popular with the same style-sensitive crowd that turned their previous venture, Armando Records, into Bogotá's favourite roof-top music venue, this intimate four-room retreat is just a short hop to Café Havana, the salsa club that has turned the 'lively' part of Cartagena's old town, Getsemani, from no-go to must-go in recent years.

    The interiors embrace the creative Cuban spirit fashioning eagle-shaped truck lights and chrome washing machine drums into a tongue-in-cheek lighting scheme that makes this place stand out for intrepid treasure hunters with a keen eye for design.

    It's elongated swimming pool is perfect for staying cool during Cartagena's hot and steamy days with a slick music system piping your own playslist throughout the house.

    If you are traveling with friends, discounts can be secured if you choose to rent the entire house out for longer stays.

    It's worth booking well in advance as the trendy owners have become even more popular since they opened this place in 2011.

    * One of the coolest cribs in town. The pool makes a wonderful backdrop for a little soirée.
    * The hip interiors will make you feel cool even if you're not.
    * A price that's more than competitive with some of the best hotels in Cartagena.
    * The house is brilliantly located for fun-lovers with trendy bars, Demente and Malagana Bar & Café, as well as the famous Café Havana nearby.

    * The house can be rented in its entirety or rooms can be rented separately.
    * With six rooms and seven beds, the house can sleep up to twelve comfortably.
    * Extra beds can be arranged if your group is bigger than twelve.
