Casa Sofia Cartagena

The house was restored at the end of 2007. The original colonial walls with brick and coral were carefully preserved. We seek to provide the comfort of your own home while enjoying the Old City.

Getsemani is one of the most important neighborhoods in the city, given that it is the location of the birth of the Independence just steps from the house in 1811. Currently, the Convention Center Julio Cesar Turbay Ayala, the Church of the Tercera Orden, Centenario Park, and the Camellon de los Martires are all located here.

This beautiful lodging has three air-conditioned bedrooms (one with a King-sized bed, one with a Queen-sized bed, and the third with two twin beds and an additional bed to sleep a total of 8 people) and a gourmet, open-air kitchen located next to the central patio and pool under a colonial archway. The kitchen has a six-burner gas stove and all necessary appliances (including a microwave) necessary to prepare your favorite recipes. The services of a professional cook are also available upon request. The kitchen contains stools and a central table and a small bar. There are three bathrooms which all have hot and cold running water; the bathroom in the main bedroom contains an open-air shower tiled with beautiful sky and sea-colored glass tiles.

You can relax in the living room with lovely Cathedral ceilings on a down-feathered sofa which can also serve as an additional bed. The dining room has a colonial dining room table that can seat 8 that is situated next to the swimming pool and a hammock.

From the rooftop deck you can see the dome of the Cathedral, La Popa and parrots which come each morning and evening to sit in a nearby tree.
