the plus: great location, good breakfast, common areas planted and a small fountain - although too hot to sit in them long, helpful staff. The negative: room so small I had to climb over one of the suitcases to get in and out of bed. The room air conditioner is positioned so that when it kicks on, the cold air... More

I stayed at this hotel for four nights in August, 2014. My flight arrived in Cartagena at 7 A.M. and I was worried that check-in was only at 3 P.M. When I got there, however, they had a spare room so I was accomodated immediately after my arrival, and got to have breakfast, no charge. I was also worried that... More

I had a great time staying at Hotel 3 Banderas. The place is a colonial building, right in the middle of the historic city. Our room was comfortable and clean. AC and TV works great in your room, if you need them. There are many restaurants in all around the hotel and tons of things to explore in Cartagena. One... More

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at 3 Banderas and we were really pleased with the accommodations, staff and service. The hotel is on a relatively quiet street in the walled city. It has two lovely courtyards, a great roof deck and the rooms are very clean, stylishly appointed and very comfortable. My only regret is that our... More

The location is in the historic old walled section of Cartagena. There are great restaurants in every direction and loads of people on the street going to them. The hotel style almost seems British colonial--woods, wicker and lots of plants. (I am sure I've seen the same hotel decor in Singapore. ). There are multiple lounge areas, which helps keep... More

our family of 5 spent 3 nights there in 2 separate rooms . This place fits right in with the Cartagena theme that we loved. The staff was very friendly and helpful.( we fell in love with Paola) One particular morning we decided to skip breakfast and they actually came by and asked us if we were coming because they...

I stayed for 2 nights in one of the simplest room they have. It was small but cozy, stylish, quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff was amazing! so friendly and helpful to answer every kind of questions no matter the time of the day. I was traveling alone and it was my first time in Cartagena, so their help made...

Room was very clean. It's not noisy at night. The bed is very comfortable. Nice shower! Amazing breakfast! I will definitely go... More

We stayed in room 204. Small, but really nice designed. Tiles on floor were beautiful, and the wood beam ceiling was great. Staff and breakfast were good, but nothing special. I would stay here again for the character and location. It was in a quiet area of Cartegena. However, we did have an unpleasant experience during the reservation process. We... More
