Hotel Magdalena was everything we needed and more in Cartagena. The staff were flexible and extremely friendly. They were more than happy to store our things while we travelled to Santa Marta. The rooms were clean, quiet and best of all, cool. Wifi worked perfectly and the hotel dog named Lulu was always around for a giggle. Great place to... More

This place really worked out well for us. Friendly staff. Good location just outside of the old city, in Getsamani. Neighborhood never felt unsafe. Friendly laundromat across the street. Great air conditioner in the room. Strong wifi. Digital tv for hdmi cord. Very comfortable. Simple room, but great value. We stayed two different times during our time in Colombia. If... More

The room here is super small and has one little window which goes direct to the corridor. In the night you here everything from the neighbors and the room gets enlighted from the corridor light. For me the most horrible place on my whole Colombia trip. Ok, at least it was clean...but never again!

This hotel was in a great location for Getsemani, a really cool area for new small hostels, hotels, restaurants, etc. Air conditioning makes it great, but it also has really helpful staff at the front desk. They don't speak english, however. But that doesn't stop them if you motion them over to Google Translate at the nearby computer. They will... More

Super comfortable bed and very good much needed air conditioning. Very helpful staff. Quiet hotel. We could walk to many restaurants and sights. There was a safe in the room for our valuables. No complaints about anything.

The place is new. It's clean. The cleaning staff is here all day so they aren't waking you up to clean your room. They are accommodating for all your needs. They are genuinely nice. The area seems a little ghetto, but it's actually being gradually redone. It's very safe to walk anywhere even for a lady and even though it... More

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
