We had a wonderful stay at the Ananda Hotel -- our first time in Cartagena and it was perfectly situated, with a fabulous in house restaurant, Carmen, 2 beautiful pools, roofdecks, a bar, spacious rooms, beautiful common areas, exquisite attention to detail in the decor and renovation of the space. The AC worked supremely well which was a relief in... More

From the moment we walked in from the airport, the staff was welcoming and helpful. The location is excellent within the walled city and in walking distance to the beautiful plazas and cathedrals. In the morning we were greeted by lovely staff (Lucas and Endir) who knew us by name (we stayed for 4 nights and wish it could have... More

The Ananda is a very expensive hotel with below-average service. Location within the Walled City is perfect. The property itself is beautiful, but not “that” beautiful to justify the price, specially in absence of the world-class customer service and pampering you have a right to expect at this price tag. The staff was not particularly friendly, and they will put... More

We stayed for one night and ran into various problems, can't imagine if we stayed longer. Some of the rooms face the bar which plays loud music, so if you want rest not the place. Staff unhelpful when requesting help, on top of it made booking online at checkout tried added hidden costs, choose to pay NOW and not at... More

My friend and I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Ananda Hotel Boutique. We requested a room with two beds and our junior suite was spacious. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever slept in! The complementary breakfast at the hotel was phenomenal - fresh fruit, a delicious bread basket, and a variety of delicious hearty... More

Ananda is a small boutique hotel in a great location in the old city of Cartagena. Very nice hotel, beautifully decorated with great rooms. I stayed in the luxury suite very spacious and comfortable worth the extra cost. Breakfast was awesome!!The pools are a great way to escape the humid weather of Cartagena. The staff are great and give advice... More

Pros: - Room was clean and decently sized. - Staff was available and gracious. - Roof top wading pool and deck is a must see. There's a larger wading pool on the ground floor. - The breakfast was included in our rate and was amazing. Cons: - Toilet has a weak flush.

This is my last night here at the Ananda hotel. I normally wait after I complete my stay to write a review but I gathered more than enough information to write a fair one. I booked a four night stay. My sister and niece joined me. This hotel is truly an excellent boutique hotel. It is small in the sense... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice. The first time two years ago which was a much better experience (it was a different manager). This time last New years eve 2014, was awful. First, I have hand picked the rooms as I went before personally to chose them. When I get there in December they did not respect the rooms... More
