The staff were very friendly. The room was basic but acceptable. Mine was located next to the reception desk, and you could hear music/noise outside, particularly when the AC went idle. Breakfast is very basic but this is a budget accommodation so no complaints. There was a misunderstanding with the reception desk when making a van reservation for Barranquilla the... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. What I liked about this place: - Awesome location: it's in the upscale San Diego area within walking distance to tons of restaurant and bars and yet has a strong local flavour. There is an Exito supermarket a block away and you can find cheap and delicious street food in the two... More

While on business in Cartagena I decided to stay at Casa Abril. Arriving at night and leaving early the next morning, my priorities were to be able to get a good night's sleep, walk to a nice restaurant in the Old Town for dinner, and not break the bank. Casa Abril checked all boxes. The room while a bit on... More

Well located and simple place to stay. People in the front desk are nice and very laid back. The bathroom is clean but the room is so so. You can't sleep until late because you listen people in the breakfast. You feel bad to eat in the morning because the tables are outside in a backyard without air condicionated.

Great place!.. very clean, excellent service, and perfect location. Just need to make breakfast a bit bigger. The rooms are a bit small but they are comfortable enough. Very friendly people and great restaurants around.

Casa Abril is the cheapest place I found in the worthwhile San Diego area. Cartagena can give off a sketchy vibe at night, but the walk to this B&B always felt safe. Great air conditioning, good wifi, warm staff. The walls are thin, but we stayed during the off season. The included breakfast is nothing to write home about.

I stayed with a friend in a small room on the garden area, this rooms have A/C and are very quiet, allowing you to comfortably sleep. The first time I intended to have a shower, there was no hot water but after asking the staff, they explained to me that there was a switch in the superior part of the... More

This place seemed pretty good at first. We liked the service from the people that worked there, we liked the room, price was alright. However, we encountered a huge problem there. We had one of the first floor rooms along the garden area. The third night we were there, it rained in the middle of the night. I got out... More
