The hotel is in a refurbished building in the historic old city. It is 2 blocks from the wall constructed to defend Cartegena from pirates. The high ceilings, fans, foliage and corridors keep the unairconditioned, public spaces cool. All the rooms have excellent air conditioning and fans. Our room had a terrace with table, chairs, umbrella and lounge chair. The... More

A stunningly renovated historic house, right in the centre of the historic area of Cartagena, close to fabulous restaurants. Really gives you the feel for this world heritage listed city. Staff friendly and helpful.

We stayed over Xmas so the prices may have been hiked up but we enjoyed our stay in 3B despite the high cost. The city itself is VERY touristy and expensive. Meals and drinks out cost 150% compared to the rest of Columbia. The room was fine with a fridge which was welcome to keep drinks cold as it's very... More

This is a small, very charming and friendly hotel. The location is ideal. Plaza San Diego is just around the corner and has many restaurants and shops. Everything in the Old Town is within easy walking distance and feels safe day and night. The staff is very helpful and Paola, at the front desk was delightful. Our room was basic... More

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

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
