Fodor's Expert Review Portal de la Marquesa

Cra. 1 #15–27, Santa Cruz de Mompox, Bolívar, 132560, Colombia

This colonial-era mansion once hosted Simón Bolívar; today it's a superbly decorated boutique hotel with a nod to the building's illustrious past. The hotel's numerous common spaces walk a line between modern and folkloric, while the guest rooms are airy and cool (there's a/c) with comfortable bathrooms. The suites are particularly spacious–-there's one with a small dipping pool. The breakfasts are a standout.

PROS

  • great riverside location
  • accomodating and helpful staff
  • historic building

CONS

  • not all rooms created equal–-it's worth going for the upgrade
  • limited English-speaking staff
  • pool is private and only for the suite
