This hotel is by far the best hotel you can find in Getsemaní. My boyfriend and I had spend several nights at other places, and were running desperate to find something better, since most places here in Cartagena is either way over priced, dirty or as we feel the biggest problem in this city is - they are very unfriendly....

My wife and I stayed here almost a week. They have multiple places which are very close to each other. We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. We had a room on the second floor, next to the balcony with fan for 70,000 pesos (around $35) which is great value for the quality you get. They have a kitchen... More

Evaluation is for a ground-floor fan-room with a medium-large, good Samsung flat-screen-TV. My conclusion might sound worse than I actually thought it was, but here are the facts: room was overall clean but with some stains on the bedsheet (which I don´t mind too much), room did smell unpleasantly scruffy, even though they had put some desodeorant to counter that....

Stayed here for 2 nights as this was the decent but affordable place in Cartagena. It is in Gestemani, a 10 minute walk to the middle of town But, quite lively. Rooms are small and claustrophobic due to the lack of windows - but thats true of any rooms in Carta. Staff, quite friendly and helpful. The owner lady and... More

My wife and I stayed over there for New Year's. Cons: The hotel is ok, but the rooms are small and outdated. On top of that, the bathrooms from different rooms connect at the top and you can hear absolutely everything that goes on the other room. No hot water, but it is Cartagena and you probably won't miss it.... More

We stayed there 3 nights. The hotel is nice, the staff helpful -they allowed us to take a shower before leaving in the afternoon after a beach daytrip-. It's a few minutes away from the Clock Tower in the Walled city. There are several shops and cheap restaurants around. The breakfast, that is not included, although not bad , could... More

We stayed nearly a week in this hotel and found it a very nice place. The staff is very friendly and helpful with all questions. The rooms are clean and our bedsheets were changed every 2nd day. At the roof there is breakfast with a very nice view over the city. The location is good to explore the city. The... More

We arrived a day late due to a problem with flights but the hotel did not charge us for the night we were unable to stay (I called in advance to warn the hotel - I speak a bit of Spanish think it may have been a struggle in English). The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful, welcoming us... More
