If you have the money to choose between a boutique hotel and a 5* hotel don't doubt it and go for all the stars. I'm used to very good hotels and specially very good service. This boutique hotel is beautiful, I exchanged several emails with Iris from FD &. reservations and every need I had and requested was cover. Upon... More

Located on a quiet street in the Old City, the Ananda is a delightful oasis from the heat and activity of Cartagena. Two beautiful (albeit small) pools and a lovely rooftop seating area offer a special serenity and view of the city's rooftops and the sea. The rooms are a good size - although a bit dark. The included breakfast... More

Lived up to what we expected and so we enjoyed very much. Lovely room with small sitting out area. Super roof top pool (as well as on ground floor) with views over sea and old roof tops. Great location and we just walked and walked enjoying sites and sights of both old and new Cartagena. The hotel added to our... More

Lovey decor in the old city of Cartagena. The rooms were wonderfully apportioned, except they were very dark. The bathroom was nicely remodeled, but as it had open air access to the outside, it tended to be very warm, in comparison to the nicely cooled main room. Also, it was very easy to hear bathroom activities from the rooms close... More

Amazing hotel in a perfect location close to everything but on a quiet street. Highly recommend the deluxe room over a standard room. The pool on the ground floor is beautiful colonial style! The restaurant 'Carmen' is very good too and said to be one of the best in Cartagena.

Ananda Boutique Hotel was a pleasant stay. The location is great, in the Old Walled City and walking distance to most things. The Rooftop was my favorite! Jacuzzi, city and sea views and daily relaxation after excursions. The staff needs to be more attentive with providing drinks for guest on the rooftop. I would have to go downstairs to order...

Good location. Small two-level hotel with 20 rooms, Colonial house adapted for a hotel. I stayed at a second-floor room with a view to the courtyard pool, beautifully decorated with lots of wood, nice bathrooms and details of a hotel boutique.
