None of the staff speak any English at all and the people on the coast speak with a strong accent and a different dialect so they couldn't understand our Spanish and we couldn't understand theirs. We had a friend (a local) come to the hotel to translate for us which turned out to be invaluable, we wouldn't have been able... More

The check in went smooth, although the room windows was loose very old and moldy, and the sheets were dirty. After calling front desk several times, to ask for another room because the loosen moldy windows and the sheets were disgusting dirty, they send the bellboy to check if this was really the case. After a long waiting we finally... More

On my arrival, my room was in the 5th floor on the south building (where most of the rooms are). Windows were locked, they couldn't be opened, and the smell of the furniture (desk and table) was terrible, like old wood. And that first night, I found one medium size cockroach in the bath and another in the room! I... More

Barranquilla was packed during the week and this was the only room available after checking 10 other hotels. The hotel is old and run down. They don't even turn on the air conditioner in the lobby. The air conditioner in the room was an a noisy antique. The worst part was that one of the room's windows was broken and... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and everything as advertised. I have stayed at several hotels in Barranquilla and for the money Puerta Del Sol is by far the best bargain. Will stay again when I return.

I wish to inform those who desire lodgings/accomodations in Barranqulia, Colombia, the hotel puerta del sol is managed by a dynamic gentleman, Mr. Michaels. His presence and his motivation to serve the guest is without comparasion. In reality Mr. Michaels is the driving force of the establishment. The hotel has had some difficulties in the recent past however Mr. Michaels... More

Puerta Del Sol is a very clean room and the hotel staff is decent, however, when you think you room is prepaid through orbitz or expedia or whatever travel agency you choose, you will find out that they will charge you an insurance fee at the end. I could not find it anywhere on Orbitz that said the package did... More

Istayed here one week before Christmas 2011. The hotel was very clean, and the room was great. This is only one room that has a balcony and I got it; it is small, but nice. The regular rooms (without a balcony) has a double bed and is much larger, roomier. The bath is large and very nice. The hotel had... More

The staff were very friendly. The rates are good but it is not what you look for in the US. For a little bit more I stay at Hotel Del Prado it was a much nicer experience. But I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. I got what I paid for.
