    • 8.0.Very good

      Really loved our stay here. Had a brand new room on second floor right next to pool. Pool had a connected sauna so you can go in and out seamlessly. Pool deck has a nice view out over the parque de los novios. The staff is very sweet and accommodating. Only complaints were a check in that took waaaay too long (45 minutes ) and our breakfast wasn’t ready when requested and they changed what we ordered the night before.

      A wonderful boutique hotel

      It's a wonderful boutique hotel that fronts El Parque de los Novios in the center of old Santa Marta. The staff was friendly and attentive, the room was spotless, the A/C blew cold air and the shower had hot water. All was appreciated. Good dining is nearby, and El Parque de los Novios is the center of nightlife for that area. There's good shopping, the beach is a two-minute walk, and taxis are easy to obtain. Santa Marta itself seems a little decaying and past its prime, but the Placita Vieja Hotel was an absolute gem.

    • 8.0.Very good

      Almost perfect but...

      Charming hotel located on the corner of the main town square which provides great access to restaurants and nightlife. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This could easily be a 5-star review, however there are a few negatives worth noting. We booked the deluxe room which is located on the ground floor, right next to the reception desk. This room is comfortable and spacious, but facing the main (lively) square made it very noisy and overall lacking in privacy. I would really recommend requesting a room in the back. You also have to knock to be let in to the hotel each time, which has the unintended impact of making you feel like you’re being monitored. I still would have given it 5 stars, but we had a really strange incident occur at check out which left us with a bad taste. We were about to leave when the staff went in to do a thorough check of the room, noticing that apparently one of the small towels was missing. Other staff came to help turn the room upside down and this started turning into a small scene at the front with the driver from the Marsol transport van waiting. The possibility and likelihood that this towel was never supplied to us wasn’t even considered, so it seemed that we simply must have taken it. To avoid making the situation even more awkward, we just offered to pay for it so we can be on our way - a gesture which they promptly accepted. Perhaps make a note of what towels/items have been supplied to you each day and follow up if something’s missing,

      Beautiful boutique hotel with very nice and friendly staff. The hotel is located right in the middle of the city centre close to all the restaurants and bars but surprinsignly enough is perfectly isolated from the noise. We stayed there during the busy weekend nights and did not hear any music or noise from outside. The pool area is a great relaxing option and they also offer a massage service. Totally recommendable.

      This was a great hotel in the heart of the city. There are dozens of restaurants, cafes and bars outside and yet the hotel is reasonably quiet. The staff are great and Jesús in particular was amazing. He helped us arrange tours to Tayrona Park, made sure of breakfasts were ready on time, helped with taxis, arranging for my wife to get a massage, etc. Can't say enough good things about him!
