Good hotel at not so expensive range. The restaurant served good food nd the wine selection is also good. Rooms are not to big but comfy. Many options for shopping and meals available nearby. They have a nice entertainment room with Xbox and many games available to keep d kids busy

Stayed at the Carlos III hotel for two nights on a business trip to Cartagena, upon arrival the surrounding streets were a bit drab but do not let this put you off, this little hotel is very amenable with very friendly staff at the front desk, rooms were very comfortable with a plastic roller shutter which keeps out the noise...

During the check-out we were serviced by a lady who didn't see anything wrong in forcing us to wait for her about 10 minutes (she was talking via phone). It was the first time I was treated so unprofessionally.

We stayed here for 1 night during the Easter holidays with 2 children of 8 and 6 years. Cartagena doesn't have many hotels around the centre, especially those offering family rooms, and this one is only a short walk to the top of the pedestrian heart to the city. The price of €55 was very good for a large family... More

A quite unusual hotel on a a back street, the Carlos III is good value and a reasonable place to base yourself for a few days. The hotel uses an associated small restaurant/cafe for its midday/evening meals but caters to breakfast directly. The breakfast layout was quite good, various breads, cheeses, meats; a limited selection of hot items; plus fruits,... More

Reasonable close to walk to most of the many historical sites of Cartegena. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful You have to pay for parking, but it is not expensive and is located beneath the hotel.
