Hotel Charleston Santa Teresa

Plaza Santa Teresa, Carrera 3A No. 31–23, Cartagena, Bolívar, 130001, Colombia

Occupying the historic Convento de Santa Teresa, this 16th-century showplace inside the walled town combines colonial and republican architectural styles with colorful attention to detail, preserving the building's character from the plant-laden multistory interior courtyard to local design touches in guest rooms. Rooms and suites, sumptuously appointed with rich fabrics, some antique furnishings, and modern pieces, look out onto the ocean or the walled town. The best views are from the rooftop pool (overlooking San Pedro Claver church) and restaurant.

PROS

  • the swimming pool is a delight
  • public areas evoke the city's past

CONS

  • street vendors gather in the plaza outside
