Hotel Casa La Fe - The building dates from 1935 and has always been an hotel. The current owners (British/ Colombian) acquired it in 2004, closed for total renovation and re-opened in 2005. The hotel has 'Republican Era' architectural styling and decoration as befits a building of this vintage and has a growing collection of memorabilia/ art from this period and earlier.
We are located in the very centre of the old walled city (click to view) facing onto Plaza Madrid and five minutes walk to everywhere. Despite being in the middle of town we have strict controls on access so the hotel has a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. The hotel is not suitable for young singles wanting to party or introduce casual guests.
Rooms are located on three floors (note no elevator) and are all furnished to the same standard. Ground floor rooms open directly onto an internal patio so they can be a little noisier through the day due to guest traffic. For this reason they cost less. Upper floor rooms face inwards and open onto the same patio at a higher level. Finally we have some upper floor rooms with private balconies opening onto the Plaza. The balconies are of sufficient size to sit out and enjoy Cartegana's exhuberant street life.
Breakfasts are served in the patio area and we offer a choice of menu (click to view) and local specialities.
The hotel has a rooftop terrace offering both shade and breeze and a large jacuzzi (4m x 3m). Most other hotels put these facilities at ground level where they lack air circulation, lose privacy and see little use.
We print our own street maps showing ATMS (that work), banks, airline offices, mailboxes and other stuff to help you navigate the essentials. We also include recommendations for restaurants, typical cuisine, light meals and bars. We are always looking for ways to improve our service and we respond to customer feedback.
Our Booking System is the most professional available and will display real-time room availability and tariff options for any date. Reservations are made on a secure server with immediate confirmation of booking.
Finally we have a beautiful private home by the beach. It's part of a gated community located 30 mins north of town. The house is occasionally available for hire by guests of the hotel. Please contact us for further information.
