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;...

Extremely friendly/helpful staff. In a good part of Barra with lots of good restaurants within a block, down Carrerra 51-B. This chain offers two free drinks at their bar during happy hour. Had a business center. Big place. Room very quiet. Only complaint about the room was that it overlooked the inside of another building. But whatever. I'm sure they... More

The hotel is located in front of McDonald's for fast food eaters. If you want to eat at a better restaurant, try walking down the 51b street to Calle 82 and Calle 84, it is safe to do it. There you will also find Farmatodo, a nice 24/7 drugstore to buy groceries and snacks. The hotel is modern and has... More
