I like to consider myself a connoisseur on the roof, and without a doubt the roofs in Cartagena have met my high standards! In fact, I didn’t even know that Cartagena has so many great roofs!
My main vision was that it was the colorful, quirky buildings that stunned the visitors. But seeing them from above, especially by the pool and with a cocktail in hand, takes it to a whole new level!
The best thing is that most roofs are free! Of course, we bought at least one cocktail each to enjoy the view a little. But it was amazing to be able to stay overnight at an Airbnb price of $ 50 a night and still enjoy the 5-star hotel roofs!
Here are my three favorite roofs in Cartagena and why!
1. Best roof terrace overall: Townhouse Boutique Hotel
Address: Cra. 7 ## 36-88, Cartagena, Provincia de Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia
I had heard about it townhouse and fully understood the hype when we got there. The reception was not only extremely inviting and allowed us to store our luggage there, but was also happy to point us to the roof.
When the glass doors opened, I was in heaven! It was like this me! Everywhere pink and green tropical palm prints, two small pools and a neon sign with the inscription “Slut, where’s my champagne?”… although I would only ever say that to my friend.
Not only was the atmosphere fantastic, the food and drinks were some of the best we had! I can only recommend the Frozé and Veggie sliders!
2. Best view: Movich Hotel
address: Centro Histórico, Calle de Vélez Danies No. 4 – 39 Cartagena Hotel, Colombia
The Movich hotel is probably the most famous of the roofs in Cartagena and where you can see the most photographed view!
It has a two-story roof with an infinity pool in the lower area and a smaller hot tub in the upper area. There is also a bar and a deck area on the upper level. The view is absolutely breathtaking and shows both the old town and the newer city in the distance!
You can also see all the other roofs below from up there! So we planned where to go next!
3. Coolest: Sophia Hotel
Address: Calle 32, de la Aduana, Cra. 45 # 26c4, Cartagena, Cartagena de Indias, Bolívar, Colombia
I wouldn’t lie, I didn’t expect a house DJ, champagne-drunk girls, mister and a goblet for my wine on a pool roof in Colombia.
But low and lo and behold, I wondered if I was actually at the top of the world in LA or Miami Sophia Hotel! It’s a smaller area that adds to the relaxed atmosphere, and they have no problem letting your cocktail lounge by the pool.
It also has a great view of the top of the cathedral, which was perfect for the sunset!
4. Best nightlife: Alquimico
Address: Calle del Colegio ### 34-24, Cartagena, Cartagena Province, Bolívar, Colombia
Note: It opens at 6 p.m. and the roof is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays!
Countless people also recommended Alquimico, but unfortunately we were on a Monday and it was closed for cleaning.
However, the first and second floors were still open, so we still tried one of their famous cocktails. As the name suggests, Alquimico specializes in mixology and uses fruit-fortified liqueurs!
