Super helpful and friendly staff. Very well located in historic centre making it the perfect base to explore from. Generously allowed us an early check in and late check out which was hugely appreciated.

This hotel was ANAZING! It was the first time the pictures on the web actually showed the real amazing parts of the hotel! Everything was perfect. In fact my wife even had a medical condition while she was there and they called a doctor free of charge. We travel all over the world and this place is top notch! We can't recommend it enough. The free breakfast in the morning is wonderful too. You are in the main part of the walled city but the hotel is quiet. The staff are so helpful. A 5 star from us!!

Felt truly as a welcomed guest. From arrival to departure was never short of attention and good service. On a car trip about six hours away, the hotel personnel took the time and care to call us (called the taxi driver) around 10:00 PM to confirm if all was well and what would be out estimated time of arrival. Very impressed.

We didn't visit any other hotels in Cartegena, but I doubt you will find a better one than this. The rooms are stylized and chic, and the pool on the roof is exceptional for its fantastic views of the old city and the Caribbean. Really has to be one of the great pools in the world. I will never forget the view. The staff of the hotel couldn't be more helpful or gracious. I have given the hotel a 5 in every category.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff excelled at giving their finest service at all times. They were kind and considerate and very genuine. The hotel is beautifully appointed in an elegant rustic style. The exposed walls, size if our room and enormous double shower were a treat. The view and swimming pool on the roof are amazing. Totally walkable location to shops, resturants and plazas. Our only complaints were the noise from a private rooftop party one night that ran late and the mattress that was too firm. The hotel does not have toppers so we dismantled the bedding and padded it with the down comforter.

Me and my wife travel to Cartagena often, we always stay at the city's center and we've tried many different hotels there, without any doubt this is Cartagena's best hotel, the terrace is beautiful with the city's best pool, the service is excellent and the location is the best possible one, the rooms are very nice also, I recommend this hotel!

This is a well appointed small hotel with a great location. The rooftop pool is small, but has a great view. There is also a sitting area 1/2 level over the pool that is beautiful at night with great views of the city, the ocean and the beaches of Boca Grande about 2-3Km away. The staff is personable and attentive. Many rooms have a nice small balcony. Nice new large screen TV. It could be noisy with its central location, but they have installed a set of double doors with thick glass that affords a very quiet environment. Bathroom is nice with good amenities and a large double headed rain shower. Cost varies with the time of year ....weather is constant, but demand varies to drive the price. We visited in early November for a competitive rate, but that more than doubles at Christmas time.

O hotel é lindo, com decoração moderna e requintada, quarto muito confortável e banheiro enorme com chuveiro "efeito de chuva". As amenidades são de Pascal Morabito, que para quem não o conhece, é um super-hiper premiado designer e arquiteto francês que também trabalha como perfumista e estilista. O café da manhã além de farto e gostoso é chiquerésimo, pois tem uma "palenquera", figura típica de Cartagena, que são as vendedoras de frutas, nos servindo frutas diversas na mesa. Achei a idéia genial, pois remete à história colonial da cidade. O hotel ainda possui uma piscina no terraço, 6º andar, com bar e vista panorâmica da baía de Cartagena. Possui também SPA. O staff é atencioso e gentil. Apenas não comprem os pacotes turísticos oferecidos pelo front-desk, pois o preço é tremendamente majorado comparado ao mesmo pacote oferecido pela cidade e as informações são truncadas e errôneas. Afirmaram-nos que o pacote continha determinados tours que, na verdade, não ocorreram. Senti-me enganada. Falando com outras pessoas que estavam no mesmo tour, porém, em outros hotéis, eles pagaram cerca de 30% mais barato do que eu. Senti-me a própria "turista é bicho bobo".

O hotel é fantástico, perto de todas as atrações turísticas de Cartagena. Está dentro da muralha! Café da manhã muito bom e super variado, arrumadeira no quarto 2 vezes por dia, sempre deixando água mineral grátis e algum mimo como docinho , chocolate ou produto de spa para pés. Quarto com janela/varanda insonorizadas, cortinas com black out, ar condicionado split e ventilador e ainda por cima tem ELEVADOR! Piscina maravilhosa e de bom tamanho com uma linda vista da cidade. E o mais importante, nenhum cheiro de mofo ou desagradável como li que em todos os outros hotéis de Cartagena tem. Minha família foi super mimada em especial por Iris, que tornou nossa estadia muito mais agradável e especial.

Siempre que vamos a Cartagena queremos quedarnos en un lugar especial, últimamente preferimos la ciudad amurallada, allí hemos probado algunos hoteles, sin embargo hasta el momento el Movich es el mejor de todos, su ubicación, sus habitaciones y sobre todo su terraza con la mejor vista de la ciudad al lado de la piscina son su gran fortaleza.

"Great Boutique Hotel in Old Town Cartagena"

"Great location, superficial service"
05/02/15 bajan64 New York City, New York
You couldn't ask for a better location in Cartagena, and with a great roofdeck and pool, it has all the trappings of an above-average hotel. But sadly, often even with the best of intentions the service just didn't measure up to the class that the hotel tries to aim for. This can be relatively minor. For example, we repeatedly found the staff at the bar often more engaged with each other than paying attention to the guests. Surprisingly for a high-end hotel in the center of a World Heritage Site where visitors are coming from all over the globe, much of the staff has a limited command of English. I say this not as an arrogant English-speaker (I speak several languages) but from the reality that English is effectively the universal shared language. Colombian and Japanese are likely going to communicate in English, not Spanish or Japanese. In other ways this service can have real impact. While we were there they were having major Internet issues. The network was slow to the point of being unusable. As an IT person myself, it became clear that this was due to a very badly configured "filter" they were using to try and stop guests from accessing high-bandwidth services like YouTube. The end result was that some sites were slow, and others, like Facebook were blocked entirely - for several days while we were there. Now while FB may be used by some to just publish photos of their dinners, for others it has become a vital communication, marketing and advertising channel, both personal and - in our case - commercial. Not only did it take them days to fix the issue, but they provided absolutely no feedback as to the progress in addressing it. In the end they just removed the filter, which is what they should have done in the first place until they could get it right. Finally several members of our group were overcharged for in-hotel laundry - in some cases by double the actual amount (from US$ 100 to US$ 200). It was only when challenged that the mistake was noted and the issue corrected. This is unacceptable. The staff is clearly enthusiastic and friendly, but there is something terribly wrong with how the whole thing is being managed.

"excellent service"
04/23/15 Brian G
I was staying with my wife a few weeks ago, really shocked with the service from all the staff, always attentive to all our needs, organized excursions, restaurant reservations for all staff is fully trained to recommend places we wish to emphasize the excellent service and care of Miss Christina, every night we would arrive at the hotel always welcomed us with a smile, always willing to help even offered coffee when calling to our room for our wakeup call! We travel to many places in the world, and we have to describe how special it made us feel. Congratulations on each of the people who make a difference in service. Restaurant service is incredible, the terrace has the most amazing view of all, we recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to relax and spend a pleasant holiday right in the historical center which makes also nice, its location is perfect, close left supermarkets, shops, drug stores, electronic cash, and all the interesting monuments in Cartagena, thank you very much for making our stay unforgettable, Christina thank you very much for all your efforts to make us feel at our house.

"Great choice for Cartagena"
04/09/15 cleopatra119 Washington DC
Such a lovely little hotel! The rooftop pool is absolutely worth the trip alone. It's an infinity pool, so you can float in the water and watch the harbor and the town below -- an amazing view! The hotel is perfectly located -- less than a 10 minute walk from anyplace you would want to go in the old city and convenient to everything. The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating, and breakfast was very good. Our room was clean and nicely appointed, though nothing special and had a view of an alley (but we didn't come to Colombia to stay in the room). Excellent choice in the old city and I would definitely stay here again!

"The hidden gem of Cartagena- Movich Hotels!"
03/24/15 Wingwing25 Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Words can't express how truly happy we are to have chosen Movich Hotel as our home while visiting Cartagena and the location to hold our wedding cocktail and reception. We had full house for a week, a home for our guest to stay while visiting beautiful Cartagena. We could not have picked a better location to hold our wedding cocktail hour and reception, as well as be a home for all of our guests. Erica Castillo really helped bring our vision of a vintage style wedding reception into a reality. The kitchen staff did very well preparing the meal which received positive feedback. After looking back at the decision to chose Movich over the other 2 elite hotels in central Cartagena we are certain that the other locations would not have lived up the experience our guests had at Movich. The door-men were exceptionally knowledgeable regarding the city and extremely helpful with the day to day needs of our, mostly English speaking, guests: booking reservations, transportation, shopping and restaurant reviews. It was this personalized service that made the experience memorable and places this hotel in an elite class. We continue to hear positive reviews from our friends and family. Overall every one of our guests (ourselves included) had a wonderful experience, felt welcomed by the staff and are all talking about booking a return visit. Thank you Movich Hotel for establishing this culture of excellence and making our stay so memorable! We hope to be back soon. Have the delicious breakfast, specially de "Cartagenero" menu! Lay at the pool while zipping on some great "Limonada de Coco"! And worry free on booking our day activities since we know we can count on the door-men to go above and beyond to make our stay even better! We are so grateful!! Tons of Love, Wendy Tigrett-Barba & Ryan Tigrett aka newly weds!!! :) PS- can we go back soon!!!

Excellent location and service. Good food and relatively good price for the location. Make sure you go to the floors above 4th and most best views are in rooms 402, 502, 602 although 6th floor will be the best (Highest) with great views of the ocean, church's, town The pool at the terrace has GREAT views and the bar is really cute as well

Once you are there you can forget any problem regarding service. Rooms, food, facilities even two weedings happenning when I was a guest did not create noise or confusion. I met one of the chefs and he was not only very good with his duties but very open and friendly and guest caring. The colum sea shell fossils in the room is great and the overall disposition of furniture too. All the people in Cartagena told me not to miss the view from the hotels's terrace. They were right. Spectacular! I will always remember my stay at the Movich.
