Good price-value relation. Nice staff who can point you to local attractions and are attentive if you need anything for your room. Our room was clean and spacious. It's in a fun neighborhood right outside the Walled City. My only hangup was that our room was in the front of the hotel with windows to the street, so it was... More

Our room was huge and had a/c as well as a ceiling fan. The shower was good and so was the wifi connection. The area is good for exploring the city, being close to the old town, ATM's, restaurants, bars and street food etc. the only negative here was a lot of noise at night which has been the case...

This was one of three hostels in which we stayed in the old town of Cartagena. Positives were good WIFI, good A/C in the room, and location in Getsemani. It was also very cheap. Our friends recommended it as the cheapest option they found in the old town. The room was very average: reasonable clean, hard bed, and very dark... More

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

You also have many options of entertainment (bodegas, pubs, bars, etc...) in walking distance. Positive: The WiFi works well. The room was clean, was equpped with a safe, a fan, A/C and a... 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
