    This was a great hotel in the heart of the city. There are dozens of restaurants, cafes and bars outside and yet the hotel is reasonably quiet. The staff are great and Jesús in particular was amazing. He helped us arrange tours to Tayrona Park, made sure of breakfasts were ready on time, helped with taxis, arranging for my wife to get a massage, etc. Can't say enough good things about him!

    Placita Vieja Hotel offered me a safe place to rest and sleep before my four day backpacking adventure to the Lost City. Placita Vieja is located next to a Park de Los Novios and many restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Really loved our stay here. Had a brand new room on second floor right next to pool. Pool had a connected sauna so you can go in and out seamlessly. Pool deck has a nice view out over the parque de los novios. The staff is very sweet and accommodating. Only complaints were a check in that took waaaay too long (45 minutes ) and our breakfast wasn’t ready when requested and they changed what we ordered the night before.

    A wonderful boutique hotel

    It's a wonderful boutique hotel that fronts El Parque de los Novios in the center of old Santa Marta. The staff was friendly and attentive, the room was spotless, the A/C blew cold air and the shower had hot water. All was appreciated. Good dining is nearby, and El Parque de los Novios is the center of nightlife for that area. There's good shopping, the beach is a two-minute walk, and taxis are easy to obtain. Santa Marta itself seems a little decaying and past its prime, but the Placita Vieja Hotel was an absolute gem.
