The hotel is a very short walk from the town center and a number of restaurants. They served me breakfast early one day, because I was going scuba diving and had to leave before normal breakfast hours.

La Calzada Del Santo - Santa Marta - Bedroom
2
9.3 Excellent (547 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at La Calzada del Santo in Santa Marta (Historic Center), you'll be a 1-minute drive from Santa Marta Beach and 7 minutes from Rodadero Beach. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We always choose La Calzada de Santo when we are in Santa Marta. The hotel is beautifully maintained and the rooftop terraces, which include a pool, bar and hammocks, offer a great atmosphere, including nice views of the surrounding neighborhood and Parque Bolivar. The hotel is centrally located (just off of the restaurant road and two blocks away from both the beach and Parque de Los Novios). The staff always goes above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable.
Cons: Nada.
3.3 Mediocre
Cons: Unfortunately our stay at La Calzada was highly unpleasant. Here are some small but wnnoying problems first: The staff at the hotel only spoke very little English, the safe in our room was broken and the bathroom was only separated by a tall wall but not fully enclosed. More annoyingly, the hotel is next to a night club with the bass clearly audible in the room with the windows closed. Furthermore, in the morning at 6am we were awoken by people in the plaza blasting loud music and preaching intensively through a microphone. The worst thing about the stay was that in the morning there was no running water so we couldn't even flush the toilet. When the water eventually came back the water was a disgusting brown colour so we couldn't shower and had to brush our teeth with bottled water. The second morning, the electricity also cut off so there was no air conditioning, fan or WiFi. Management was not very concerned with offering any kind of reimbursement for these major inconveniences.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The management and staff are extremely helpful and available as needed. The location is great and the hotel is very secure.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel location is amazing and the staff is helpful and welcoming. It is really nice the pool on the roof terrace where you can refresh yourself with at the end of the day.
Cons: The word boutique is a bit misleading in this case as it seems more a really good Hostel. We missed a small fridge in the room, to keep water and some food.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Staff was amazing. Thank you!
Cons: NA
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location and a perfect place to stay before and after the Cuidad Perdita hike with Magic Tours

7.0 Good
Pros: Near to the beach and vegetarian menu. They have good services for travelers and rooms for sharing are good.
Cons: I stayed in pop room with attached bathroom, one of the Windows was absent, only a mosquito web was there, so when the wind comes very strong at night the ceiling wish is made of a thin wood that sounds strong with the wind. So I didn't pass good nights for the sound, also you can hear the loudly music of the neighboring. It is mentioned that you can get breakfast for $7000 pesos but here there is not the option. You can get food from the menu, but dishes are over $5000 each. Breakfast cost me $13.000

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Really cute hostel with a nice vibe, friendly English-speaking staff and tasty veggie and vegan food. The room was large and comfortable with a good sized bathroom and hooks, shelves etc to put our things. The restaurant and common area was really nice, al fresco with fans to keep you cool. The cocktails were delicious & refreshing. There were a few cats around as well as a dog but they all seemed friendly. I really liked the location as it’s right by the beach, and less hectic than the other tourist part of Santa Marta. There’s a supermarket, shops, and restaurants nearby so you really have everything you need.
Cons: No printing facilities
7.5 Good

4.0 Okay
Pros: The room was OK and overall clean.
Cons: Terrible terrible terrible service! I stayed for 4 nights and no day or night was good! Always something happening. First we got to the hotel, and they didn't want to let us in through the gate to get checked in because we didn't have a room#..hey! Hello? How am I going to give you a room# if I haven't checked in? Then we got to the restaurant and they say we couldn't sit inside because they were closing but we would still receive the same service outside: and we had to wait. For half an hour for someone who would take our order. Every time we went to the restaurant, the service was so slow. We had to wait even like an hour for a small dish of fruit. Did they went to grow the fruit or what? One time that we ordered. Meat, the meat was bad! It even caused us a stomachache. Also, I asked for this room to be next to my family's room and they said when I was going to check in that I never mentioned that before. Also, we went to eat outside, and they were 5 rooms represented in the car, and they didn't want to let us in. Furthermore, one time I ordered an ice cream, and the girl never brought it; when I asked for it, she said she never got clarification on the flavor, but hey if you were confused you didn't ask for clarification either and decided to ignore it. additionally, we went to the pool one afternoon, and the odor was extremely disgusting!!!! This is nowhere near a 5 star service hotel!! Please look for a different one for your stay if you want to get good service!
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Simply perfect and outstanding
Cons: Nothing
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location on the beach was great but a 20 minute taxi to Santa Marta central with no shuttle service.
Cons: Overcrowded resort, not ideal for couples. Rooms were outdated with a concrete double bed in the matrimonial room. There were many additional charges, even to wash the cups provided. No tea or coffee facilities in room. A vast array of ugly plastic chairs poolside yet never anywhere to lay/sit as everyone seems to hold spaces yet spend hours unattended. We stayed here for some relaxation at the end of a long trip and were very dissatisfied.
7.5 Good
Pros: My mother, my wife and I Go there 3or4 tuice in the year
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good hotel in Santa Marta (pozos colorados area), in front of the beach. The hotel has several and nice swimming pools, delicious, abundant and good variety of food, beverages, etc. To be honest, you don't need to walk out from the hotel, you have everything to enjoy a good time with your family, relatives, friends, etc. Supermarket inside or a bigger market just few meters walking distance from the hotel if you want something for your group. I enjoyed my time off with my family. I'll be back in the future.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Good breakfast and location for what we needed.
Cons: Staff took a long time to find the reservation. I would not recommend this hotel for foreigners as they are not aware that we are tax exempt. When we showed our Australian passport, drivers license and itinerary showing arrival date as proof that we are not residents of Colombia we were told that this was was sufficient. We informed that we did not get an stamp at the airport as we came on the electronic gates. Definitely not impressed. This did not happened to us in Bogotá on the same trip. I definitely would not recommend this hotel at all.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed at the Reservado tower. Very modern and clean. The rooms are spacious with ceramic floors and good air conditioning system. We had issues making our check in our first night due to an inconvenience with our airline. When we called to let them know we wouldn’t be making our check in the first night they were understanding and held the room until we got in the next day. The food, facilities, and service were top notch.
Cons: When we tried to exchange US dollars to Colombian pesos so we could tip the service staff they would not let me exchange due to the fact that I was a Colombian citizen (living abroad and with US citizenship as well). Luckily my fiancé is a US citizen. When she tried to exchange a simple $20 bill they wouldn’t accept it because it had ink marks on it.

Pros: Everything else!!! The location FAB! Bang in the centre of the historic town and 1 block from the Cathedral and Parque de novias which is full of great bars and reataurants. The room we had was big, bright, had a beautiful balcony with hammoc overlooking the courtyard. And the largest comfiest bed and crisp clean linen!! Aircon too which made for a very comfortable night sleep. The authentic colombian Arepas for breakfast were delicoous!!! The staff were also very helpful and pointed out some great recomendations for the area.
Cons: The plunge pool (whilst I am sure is perfectly clean - in fact we saw them cleaning it) doesnt look too appealing and so was the only thing that didnt live up to our expectations. Also no hot water in the shower which even in the Santa Marta heat we would have liked.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and caring staff. Hot water. Decent wifi. Nice design. Good breakfast. Quiet.
Cons: Our room was on the first floor with no view nor sunlight. The cigarette smoke entered the room as people were smoking in the courtyard of the hotel. However, staff was understanding about this and removed ash trays from the table that was close to our window and assured they will not allow to smoke there. We recommend to prohibit smoking entirely inside the hotel. Otherwise it is a very recommendable and nice place!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great patio Great location Nice staff Good breakfast
Cons: A bit overpriced for the area They also charged us 40 000 just for an extra person
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The B&B was in a great location, very central but far enough away from all the action that you aren't affected by the noise. My room was in the back and was very quiet. The house itself is lovely. Lots of unique touches, and the roof deck is AWESOME. I didn't spend as much time there as I'd have liked to. The staff was lovely and accommodating. I spent one night in Minca and then returned, and they were really nice about letting me leave my big suitcase there. The breakfast was simple but very good. Highly recommended.
Cons: There is a very steep and narrow spiral staircase to get to the two rooms upstairs (where I was). I frankly felt a little unsafe every time I went up and down, especially when I had my big heavy backpack. It wouldn't stop me from staying there again, but it wasn't fun.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was nice, it's a very charming house and you really feel at home here.
Cons: The bathroom was very small. If you want to go out at night, maybe it's better to stay closer to the action as this is a few blocks away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable, charming little guest house. Very accommodating
Cons: Breakfast could be a bit earlier
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hostel is in a quiet street in the old town, just a few streets from the cathedral. The house is charming, and stylish with antiques and a great rooftop terrace with hammocks. We stayed in different rooms as we returned after a trip to Ciudad Perdida. The upstairs twin room is comfy but the bathroom is really tiny. We preferred the downstairs rooms. The staff is very nice, and the whole place is very relaxing. Would stay there again. I love places with a history.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Unique guesthouse with friendly staff, walking distance between the beach, tour offices, ATM, restaurants and market area (where you can take the bus to Tayrona) The room had comfortable beds and good air conditioning. The staff were very kind and accommodating even though some of their English was limited. It’s a small guesthouse with only a few rooms (note that some of them are up small and windy stairs) so they really make you feel at home. Good breakfast. Really cute rooftop garden with hammocks to relax.
Cons: The bathroom was very very tiny and unfortunately the shower stopped working halfway through our stay, however we were able to use a bathroom on a different floor.
6.8 Good
Pros: Delicious breakfast.

Pros: Beautiful house, lovely staff, good location just a few blocks walk from the beach. The WiFi worked well, there was air conditioning in the room and a beautiful roof terrace. We really enjoyed our stay!
Cons: The bathroom was very, very small but as girls it didn’t matter but may be difficult for a larger man!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel consists of an old house with a really beautiful style: The 'living room' is equipped with a lot of old gadgets and pictures. The roof terrace has a lot of plants and looks like a garden. It is hard to put it in words what makes the place special. Definately try it out if you want something different, a place with a 'soul'!
Cons: I can not complain about anything!!

Pros: They stated that the hotel was located in the Rodadero, the hotel is located over 15 min away by taxi.I booked the hotel based on being located in the Rodadero region. I requested a refund with no luck..
7.0 Good
Pros: Beach was nice for the sunset, however, the water is black. Room and pool are both nice. The breakfast was pretty decent.
Cons: It was too much money for what it is. The evening restaurant food is too expensive for the quality. Food is not that great compared with many other places in Colombia. The taxi available was far too much money to the airport considering its proximity (22,000 pesos!!!!). Just because you're close to the airport doesn't give you the excuse to charge so much money.

5.8 Okay
Pros: The hostal as a whole is nice, the environment was fun, and staff was friendly. I got the private room for two, the size and bed were good.
Cons: The bathroom was not what we expected (which is why I think they dont show it in the pictures).For the money we paid for the private room with private bathroom, I could´ve gotten a much better deal at another place. There is no hot water in the showers (something they dont say in their website either) and the shower did not have a curtain, so every time we took a shower, the whole bathroom was entirely wet. Also the rooms dont have AC, but did have 3 separate fans that were very noise.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Pretty much everything. Staff are amazing you will feel so welcome here they made everything super easy for me and were very helpful. Rooms and bathroom always clean, amazing pool, the food is spot on make sure you try the quesadillas and eggs for brekkie. Overall very chilled out vibe great to just lounge around next to the pool and bar was easy to meet people, they have a cocktail happy hour every night from 7-9 as many buckets you can drink for 30k pesos make sure you join Haha.I lost my credit card before going on the lost city trek, the hostel manager went to the bank on 2 occasions on my behalf to see if I had left it there and made sure I got it back so grateful for their help !! Would definately stay again if I had the chance !!
Cons: Not alot really, if I had to try and complain might be shower pressure in bathroom was a little low.
8.3 Excellent

Thanks for making my short stopover in Santa Marta worthwhile!

Keep up the great work! Ben and Hannah, the loud Londoners xx
