Its walls, which acted as a defensive shield in the past, blend in with colonial balconies and republican buildings that evoke the splendor of bygone eras. In 1995, after significant efforts, the Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara opened its doors as a luxurious hotel bursting with history, magic and impressive anecdotes...

Legendary Stories Design signature Our Unique Story Legendary Stories

In legendary and romantic Cartagena, Sofitel revived a convent whose story dates back to 1621. Travel back in time in this imposing colonial building to discover the secrets of a hotel at which every detail has its own story to tell.

This historic building is shrouded in mystery dating back to its time as the Cloister of the Poor Clare Sisters. It still maintains different historical elements: crypts, wells, confessionals, paintings, doors, hidden windows and ceramic objects.

The magnificent Presidential Suite pays tribute to the best of Colombian culture. This emblematic space at the hotel received the endorsement of Colombian artist Fernando Botero and his daughter, Lina Botero, was tasked with its interior design.

With its transformation into an upscale hotel in 1995, Sofitel gave life to the Convent of Saint Clare of Assisi, built in the 17th century. Its path toward excellence has seen it considered one of the elite amongst the best hotels in the world.
