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.Sarah Lowe
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
