The Tcherassi Hotel, Cartagena

With a city as beautiful as Cartagena, any accommodation in the area has a certain aesthetic to live up to. Thankfully, The Tcherassi Hotel does it with ease. Set in a 250-year-old colonial mansion with seven unique rooms and suites featuring private balconies and large open bathrooms, relaxation is the focus here, delivering all of the luxurious modern amenities and comforts you would expect from such a beautiful building. Four pools and a roof deck are also a nice touch, providing 360 degree views of both the historic city and the sea.


Situated in the heart of Cartagena’s Old City, The Tcherassi Hotel sits subtly on a colourful narrow street lined with historic colonial houses along the glorious Caribbean Coast. Just steps from the vibrant Plaza Fernandez de Madrid and other top attractions including the San Felipe de Barajas Fortress, The Tcherassi is situated in an ideal location to get out and explore the city’s ancient architecture and wonderfully picturesque streets.

Your room

The seven large and luxurious guest rooms – including a large suite with a private pool – occupy the four-story mansion and have been named after elegant fabrics used in designer Silvia Tcherassi’s fashion collections. Stone walls, dramatic high ceilings and private walk-out balconies never fail to impress, while the spacious nature of the rooms create an open and airy Caribbean feel.

Why we like it

In truth, there’s very little at The Tcherassi Hotel that won’t appeal to even the most demanding of guests. The beautiful furnishing effortlessly blends in with Cartagena’s colourful streets and authentic surroundings, and the thoughtful touches dotted around the hotel immediately make you feel settled in this part of the world.
