This hotel is beautiful but it's biggest selling point is its staff who are so helpful and welcoming. After staying in a few places in Cartagena this was the first we stayed in where staff spoke English. The only issue we found was trying to find staff at breakfast , or indeed, where breakfast was being served. More information on... More

I have been to Cartagena several times, however my last visit was shorter than normal so we chose to stay in a hotel located in the Center of Cartagena instead of renting in Boca Grande. Ameria Real is very clean and the staff there are very generous and helpful. The location is close to several shops, has an onsite Mediterranean... More

Nice to be very close but outside the main tourist area. Good restaurants around and the area worth to be known. Excellent service, nice pool. We took a duplex room and it was great. The only thing is that the bedroom downstrairs is noisy due to the trafic. The hotel could make something to lower the noise. They propose a... More

i liked the armeria hotel, great location n Getsemani, 10 min from the old city. Spacious room, lovely and simple but nice atmosphere. Fantastic sitting area in the terrace, great view, to chill with a drink. Still far from the service wise, not very well organised but it ca be improved. The place is romantic and great for couples as... More

Armeria Real was a great, safe choice for a first time trip to Cartagena. Staff was helpful and accommodating, food at the hotel was amazing (especially the ravioli). Room was well-designed and clean, beds were comfortable and showers had good water pressure. Sweet little balcony off the bedroom in our "family suite", which suited two couples perfectly, despite being able... More

The restored colonial building is, on the surface, quite charming. Staff is delightful though sparse and breakfast okay. I do not know what I paid as it was part of a larger purchase. If you can get it "cheap" think about it, otherwise stay clear. The lower rooms have a damp smell that is countered by room deodorant sprayed by... More

Every hotel either claimed to be booked or needed a booking of five nights minimum when I called looking for two rooms for a family trip - until I got hold of Armeria Real and Daneola/Reynaldo. Not only did they have two rooms but they even had a two room/two bath suite that suited us perfectly - indeed would probably... More

We booked this hotel 2 days before our trip, looking for something affordable to be in Cartagena during the "Reinado Nacional de Belleza", the National Beauty Contest, what normally means full hotels and high prices in the whole city. We were lucky to find a Double Room with breakfast incluided for 388,000 Pesos., the hotel is located in "Getsemani", a... More
