Insider's View

The film adaptation of Colombian Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s famous book ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’ was for the most part filmed in Cartagena’s historic quarter where Ananda Hotel Boutique is located. In fact, Garcia Marquez still has a house within the walled city.

Make sure to make the most of the fantastic views of the roof terrace - order a cocktail and watch the sunset over the city on one of their giant day beds....order a few more cocktails and wait for the terrace to get lit up by fairy lights and see the beautiful old town sparkling at night!

Sonia Bungaroo (Staff)

A beautiful boutique option in the heart of the old town, with a fantastic roof terrace and gorgeous original feature - such as the wall that frames the courtyard pool on the first floor, the only thing that matches the prettiness of the property is the attentiveness of the staff. A warm and welcoming oasis in the buzzing heart of Cartagena, make sure to use one of the complimentary bikes to navigate the towns cobbled streets and fill your basket with souvenirs and treats to bring home!
