Bovedas de Santa Clara is a smaller, more boutique-styled sister to the Sofitel Santa Clara, with which it shares stunning facitlities.   

You get the best of both worlds at this agreeable hotel in the old walled city of Cartagena:  good-value accommodation, comfortable and stylish if not overly luxurious, and access to the facilities and social areas of the top-of-the-range sister hotel Sofitel Santa Clara close by, including its exquisite pool, spa and restaurant.

The hotel shows off a pleasing fusion of republican and contemporary design, with scrupulous attention to detail including Egyptian cotton sheets and fresh fruit in the 18 individually conceived guest rooms and suites – most of which have carved balconies with lovely sea- or garden views.  The rooms are flooded with light – white is the predominant colour throughout.

There is a Jacuzzi and solarium on the top floor - To enhance your stay, you'll find the friendly and helpful service usually associated with smaller, upmarket boutique hotels.

Our Expert's Opinion

The beauty of staying at this hotel was that you benefited from the boutique, modern style as well as being within the walled city of Cartagena but you could also take advantage of the facilities of the sister hotel - Sofitel Santa Clara - which was one of the best pools in Cartagena. I recommend requesting a room with a sea view.
