I stayed at this hotel last month and I was very impressed by the hotel staff specially when I first arrived the bellman and the front desk greet me with a warm and sincere welcome. The accommodations and food are excellent will be back soon.

The name of Smart Suite Royal is confusing because it is not a suite hotel. Yet the rooms are spacious, clean and well supplied. Like in most luxury hotels in Colombia the bathroom has a glass wall to make it look more spacious. The bathroom is big enough to have the sprinkler on one side and the handle on the... More

Great location, great room and incredibly helpful staff. I've read lots of bad stuff about the shower , but i can't rate it highly enough as I am 2 metres tall and have lots of room and don't need to bend down to get under the water. A special thank you to Isabel for all her help!

I stayed with smartsuite Barranquilla for several times,if you ask me which hotel you should choose when you travel to Barranquilla, I will definitely say smartsuites. Barranquilla is near to the sea, other hotels has bad smell in the room because of the humidity, while the rooms in smart suites never. This hotel has a bar area which you can... More

I stayed at this hotel back in December for three weeks. Great Hotel. This last August 2014 after a theft at the Dann Carlton Hotel, I cancel my reservation after returning from Santa Marta and stayed at Smart Suites Royal instead. People are very professional. I will stay at this hotel every time I visit Barranquilla. Dann Carlton just washed... More

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Good value for money. Nice modern rooms. Good central location. Very friendly staff. The only minus is the gym. Fantastic location of the gym on the 15th floor, but very poor machines. Upgrading is needed !!

I wanted to like this hotel. I loved the modern style. I thought the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and have a mini refrigerator. The TVs are nice and the furniture is comfy. My main gripe is that there was mold in my room. Not a good thing, at all. I've submitted photos. There was also... More

Pros: great neighborhood, nice staff, modern and clean rooms, soft bed, firm pillows, nice small bar, fast internet, automatic blackout curtains, rooftop pool. Cons: no power plugs for desk, lobby is hot, black out curtains not dark enough, single rain shower head (not flexible), no washcloths.

Very cozy and functional hotel and nice and efficient staff. I need not look for any other hotel the next time I go to Barranquilla. My only recommendation to make it even better would be to have cleaner windows in the room (on the outside), although I know this can be tough at a hotel close to the sea, with... More

Certainly not a 5 star hotel! We booked a suite for three nights and chose to stay at the Smart Suites because of its location and because of the new look it had so we thought it would be worth the extra money (about 130 $ per night) On arrival we were taken to our suite on the second room;...
