For those who value living and experiencing a place in some depth, either sleep here or have a leisurely meal to absorb and enjoy its gracious old world style and landscaping. It's a good pick for a festive meal with friends. Worth walking the halls to see the old pictures and curios standing here and there. This hotel was formerly... More

The biggest complaint about this hotel is that the rooms could use updating and that is a fair complaint. If this is a concern, ask to see another room until you are satisfied (we did). But, putting that aside, this is an amazing classic hotel in the heart of Barranquilla. In style it is reminiscent to the Biltmore Hotel in... More

I have been here before and I love coming back! This place is a sea of calm in the madness that is Barranquilla. Although some people would say the rooms need modernising, I kind of dissagree. I love the black and white tiled floors, old woodern furniture, big doors and high ceilings. Maybe installing a plasma TV would change most... More

which would rate 4 stars. The people working here were smiling and helpful, the pool area is relaxing and lovely. Rooms rate only two stars. This hotel must have been grand once, but the rooms are quite run down. The AC unit was loud and the furniture and bed coverings extremely dated. The bathroom in our room had been remodeled... More

The pool here is amazing. The service is very good. I just wish the rooms were renovated and then the hotel would be amazing. I was skeptic of the air conditioning but it worked well and kept the room cold (which is important in Barranquilla). Over all, I think it is a good option if you can get it at... More

I love the pool area and the structures around, it is a classic, very rare in a good way (big rooms, tall roofs, unique arquitecture). But the ugly part is that it looks forgotten, the pool needs to be clean, the rooms need to be updated and the peronal service must be better. This hotel is lovelly, but as his... More
