Lonely Planet review
Two wonderfully restored 15th-century homes make up this lovely 23-room, open-air boutique hotel, rife with exposed-brick archways, original stone walls and lush vegetation. Smartly appointed rooms are full of local artistic touches that blend sympathetically with the old building. There's also a rooftop pool, shower and Jacuzzi.
Our independent authors have visited Bantu Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Cartagena.
