We stayed here for three nights in a private room with private bath. The "private" part of the bathroom was a little overstated as the toilet was in our room but did not have a door or full wall separating it from the bedroom. Aside from that awkwardness the room did have AC (which we didn't even use because the... More

La Casona is a great place to stay in Cartagena. It is a short walk to the old city and to lively bars around Getsemani. The staff are great, rooms are nice and the price is reasonable. The courtyard is a beautiful garden which makes you feel at home. I would highly recommend staying here!

This place is awesome! The dorm has great beds and air conditioner with bathroom inside. It offers good and filling breakfast. The laundry service is fast. The staff are all friendly and helpful. This is a hotel that's geared for local so not many foreign tourists, a good place if you are looking for privacy and quietness. It's located just... More

This is a small hostel within walking distance of the old walled city and the old Spanish fort on the hill above. There is not much English spoken there but with some Spanish and some English you can get by. The rooms are small but clean and well kept. Bathroom small but is also clean and has all fixtures, no...

In a nutshell, clean enough, cheap for location had wifi and included breakfast. Good if you're a backpacker. We stayed 3 nights, a little overpriced for what you're getting. We stay in hostels or budget hotels quite regularly when we travel. It was $45 for private room with bathroom. Very tight, you wouldn't be swing any cats in there. A/C... More

We got here late at night so didnt have much energy to compare with others and we were really disappointed. Rooms were dirty, poorly maintained and noisy. There were even hair left all over the shower! We got woken up by our colombian neighbours who checked in by 5am and Immediately turned the tv on full volume. Staff started making... More

I thought the price for a non-air on room was acceptable Ps 55,000 and, first impressions were good. Good quality, crisp bed linen etc. However, the room was musty, which I decided to accept because I could not be bothered to waste more time. Later, I realised that, although it appeared clean at first, a look at the bathroom wall... More

This hostal is clean, in a nice location in the Getsemani area. but it is not economic considering the other choices. Anyway you got everything you need here: internet, 24h service, a nice patio to rest after your Cartegena's tours. Nevertheless, next time I will pick something else

We stayed 8 nights in a private double en-suite room after the Air BnB accommodation a few blocks away in Getsemani turned out to be a total nightmare. Casona's location is pretty good, right in the heart of Getsemani, close to lots of cheap and fairly good restaurants and bars. The standard wasn't amazingly great, but was the best of... More
