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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best hotel in Cartagena"
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!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classy Boutique hotel in the heart of the old city"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Buena ubicación y excelentes habitaciones"
Muy buena. Tiene una excelente ubicación, con habitaciones modernas, limpias, y muy cómodas. El único problema es cuando cierran las calles el acceso y la salida no es tan fácil pues toca caminar algunas cuadras con el equipaje para poder tomar un taxi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Tiene una terraza espectacular, la vista, la música y la piscina son una delicia!!! Vale la pena visitarloGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfeito e dentro da cidade amuralhada"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"EL mejor para parejas"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Perfectly sited in the Old Town, with a staff that does not quit on pleasantness: Melissa, Natalie, Daniel, Osman, etc.... all are charming and helpful. I had a perfect stay and will return again, hopefully soon.
"The best roof top pool I've ever used!"
02/14/14 LizzieReds Bournemouth, United Kingdom
We didn't actually stay here as we had booked somewhere else, but paid to use their pool 3 days in a row. We wanted somewhere to go other than the beach - as we really didn't like Boca Grande due to being hassled SO much by women wanting to give massages. So we sought out a nice pool. And nice we got! The view literally took our breath away and has to be the best in the walled city. Yes, we had to pay 100,000 pesos each for the day but that included food and drink up to the value of the fee. Unlike other hotels such as the Santa Clara or the Charleston who all make you pay a fee and then any food and drinks are added on to that. The Movich is great value - we ate lunch and dinner there and had drinks all day! It was bliss and I would do it again. Thank you Movich for allowing us to use your pool. And for those of you thinking of staying, the hotel is absolutely beautiful!

We arrived Cartagena yesterday and were quite disappointed to find ourselves in a twin-bedded and very small room with a poor view. We had requested a room with a queen- or king-sized bed (there aren't a lot of hotels in Colombia with kings). In any event, we were upgraded to a premium room with a balcony and the room is at least double the size of the original. The service here is incomparable to anything we have experienced before. Colombia is an amazing country to explore, it's people exceedingly warm and friendly, and truly a memorable experience to visit places as yet undiscovered by tourists. In many small towns we have been stared at as foreign white skin is not frequently seen. We have felt very, very safe here the past eighteen days and would heartily endorse visiting this lovely country, and by all means, stay at the Movich in Cartagena!!
"Modern Gem in Historic City"
12/30/13 BG1936 Highland Park, New Jersey
There are dozens of charming courtyard style renovated hotels in Cartagena, but the Movich offers sophisticated contemporary ambiance. Rooms are spacious with unique textural surfaces, bathroom includes rain shower with exterior glass wall and sea views. The fabulous roof deck features a spacious pool, hot tub, bar and remarkable views of the old city, harbor and skyscrapers of Bocagrande. Food is delicious and moderately priced. Personnel are beyond helpful. The location is ideal. I can't imagine a better choice in Cartagena.

This a fantastic hotel. I recommend it 100%. Rooms are extremely nice and very big. Bathroom is gigantic and very comfortable. Reception staff is very helpful, especially Natalia that helped us every time with anything that we needed. Bell boy, Rafael was outstanding, going beyond to help us. His restaurant recommendations were great . Breakfast was included and it was also excellent. WIFI was very good too. Roof top pool and bar were also perfect. Location was excellent, inside the city walls and very close from the port were all trips start to the islands. I did not give it 5 starts only because of 1 issue: there is no place in the room to put your clothes. The closet is full of frigobar stuff and no empty spaces to put your clothes. you were able to hang some of them, but thats it. I really did not understand why as they have plenty space in the room to put drawers. Anyway, we had to keep our clothes in the suitcases. Besides that minor issue, everything was perfect.
"Nice Location - A Little Worn"
08/24/13 STEVENSNY New York City, New York
I was not overly impressed with a recent business stay at this hotel. I found that the place was a bit of a throwback to late 90's - like one of the old Miami resorts who freshens up a little but falls short of being a luxury venue. I am not sure if this hotel considers itself luxury. It looked like a very nice place for a family to go so that they can visit the beach (directly on it) and informal dining, etc. with no pretensions. The room was decent, small balcony with OK view. Just nothing too exciting about this place. I did visit the Hilton at the other end of town, and this was definitely nicer than that one, but from what I could see none of the hotels were so great. Of all my excursions throughout Colombia (Bogota, Pereira and Cartagena) I liked this city the least,. It was like a Jamaica-style town, low-end, slummy looking and annoying vendors everywhere you went, especially in the walled city area. So, I'm not a great fan of this type of beach town. I love the beach for a vacation but coming from the USA there are much better options for the time and expense. Again, it is perception of where you want to spend your time - fending off aggressive vendors or relaxing. Sorry, back to the hotel. The rooms were clean, a little worn down. The main restaurant had an extremely nice breakfast buffet (I love breakfasts) and they had everything you'd want. The service was extremely pleasant by everyone and the staff went the extra effort to make my stay pleasant.
"LOVE THE HOTEL AND THE SERVICE"
08/02/13 Lulu1221 Bayamon, Puerto Rico
Stayed there for three nights! Beautiful and elegant. The service, exceptional, the food, too! Great view from the rooftop pool and terrace. We were a group of 16 and we had a wonderful time!! People from the hotel made everything that we wanted happened for us!
"Fantastic small luxury... But noisy as hell"
07/24/13 HMP S
Awsome hotel, from location to rooms and service quality, everything was perfect. The rooftop is sensational, with two swimming pools, an incredible view, a DJ (loud as hell from the afternoon till the party is over) and a bar. Very refined breakfast, in a glamorous and very relaxing restaurant. This is also a baby friendly hotel, with the exception of the rooftop parties. There is an optional local fee that was automatically added to my account... Beware of this and ask what are you being charged before closing your account.
"Great Botique Hotel within the old City walls"
06/11/13 Budsboy520 Chicago, Illinois
Stayed here as part of a small conference,we had reserved all of the rooms in the hotel. Within the city walls the hotels are required to stay within the dimensions of the original buildings. But then they have fully modernized the interior and it is fantastic. As the other reviews have mentioned the rooftop has a nice open air bar and great views. Service was great and they were very patient with special requests etc. The surrounding city is very beautiful and this hotel is right in the middle of it all, very safe environment. We had misgivings (totally unfounded) about safety, but my wife should have come with me and enjoyed the shopping and sites.
"Great small hotel with a lot of style"
06/02/13 VincennesFrance100 Paris, France
We stayed half of our time in Cartagena in the Sofitel and the other half in this hotel. The room here was double the size of the Sofitel and the pool half the size. However, the view from the pool is superb as it looks over the city and the port. Service was friendly and professional and the restaurant was small and intimate. Given the few rooms, you really get a feeling of exclusivity. Cocktails at the roof top pool just seem to taste better when watching the sun go down in some big comfy sun chairs. A great stay.
