This hotel is very well located, around 5 mins walk to old Cartagena ! There is plenty of cheap restaurants around too ! Our room was spotless, bedsheets and towels were changed everyday. The aircon worked really well but we also had a fan if we wished some air without being cold. I would highly recommend this place for its... More

I stayed here during Holy Week 2015. It is in a good spot in Getsemani. There are many restaurants near the hotel. Also, good bars are near, but if you want to go to sleep early, you won't here the noise inside the room. Almost every tour location is 2 Km away. There is a park, 2 blocks down, where... More

Booked through booking.com (last minute cheap deal), double private room with ac, fan and t.v. Wi-Fi is working and you can use a computer free of charge. Good location, just of the main road. During night however the street is a bit dodgy. Room had only windows to the corridors. Hotel has no laundry service, no kitchen and no atmosphere.... More

At the time of staying here in December, price was really good at around $35 for private room with bathroom, tv and AC. For this price I highly recommend (very cheap for Cartagena) Room was simple and small but sufficient. Bed is comfortable, AC works well which is a must in this hot city, wifi worked well most days, and... More

Cartagena is one of the hottest cities I have ever been to and you NEED air conditioning in the hottest months. We were there in June and it was beyond belief, so we were very relieved to get a room with two decent ceiling fans and A/C. That was the best bit. The staff are ok, the price was ok... More

This is a very nice budget hotel. Clean had all the basic necessities. Located close to all the attractions so we could walk to most of the attractions. The streets around it are a little tacky but for the price you cannot ask for more The staff was nice and friendly. Wifi is spotty sometimes

Let's start by saying that it was the only available hotel/ hostel/guesthouse in the Getsemani area during New Year period, that offered acceptable conditions ( other few available were per hour type of accommodation). First night we stayed in the room with aircon and private bathroom but no window. The room was clean but tiny just 6 sq m/ 64... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 days this week. We booked a room with a shared bathroom and were upgraded to a room with 2 double beds and a private bathroom! What a pleasant surprise! The staff were so friendly and helpful with recommendations and reserving activities. Everything was kept very clean during the entire stay. The rooms... More

We stayed here one week. Small room, private bathroom with aircon for just 75.000 COP: really good deal. Everyday we found clean sheets on our bed and fresh towels in the bathroom. The hotel is in the middle of Getsemani and just 10 mins walk to the old town. There is no breakfast included, but freshly baked bread, fruit and... More
