The location is very good...right on the main street in Cartagena but several blocks from the water. The rooms are OK...not bad, not great. The staff is very helpful and attentive. We've stayed here on many occasions including Carnaval and the festival of the Romans and Carthaginians, which is not to be missed. The city is filled with interesting sights... More

It was just a one-night stay, although I have stayed here several years ago and I'm sure there was a bar then. Reception staff pleasant and helpful, room pleasant, adequately furnished and quiet, breakfast good with enough choice. I would stay there again, although would prefer a hotel nearer to the port if I was alone.

On the plus side is the location, the price and level of noise. On the down side is the not very helpful reception staff', I very often got the distinct impression that you almost had to apologise before asking them a question and the broken English response you got very often left you none the wiser.
