We recently stayed 3 nights at the UrbanRoyal. Fantastic location in the old city and very friendly and helpful staff at reception and in adjacent cafe. Breakfast was good and we enjoyed a lovely evening meal on one of the nights. Also, the rooftop pool is a welcome relief from the afternoon heat and the views are sensational. However, we... More

Rooms are nice but small. I didn't sleep more than an hour. There was a pole on the awning outside the window that was broken and it was smacking against the window all night. It woke me up about every 10 min. I had an important business meeting the next day and was a zombie.

We stayed for a week, and enjoyed our stay in this hotel, located in the historic centre of Cartagena. Breakfast in the hotel was good, and it had a rooftop pool with a great view of the city. Rooms were clean and funcional, good wi fi connection. The only downside was the room had no natural light as the windows... More

We stopped in for something to eat at the coffee shop at this hotel. Was a very bad experience. No one came to take our order (there is table service), and we waited for 35 minutes before enquiring as to the whereabouts of our panini and milkshake. The manager was also having lunch and was served before us (despite arriving... More

Hotels and B&Bs are expensive in Cartagena, especially during holidays, so Puerta del Reloj was a great find. It's within walking distance of everything, and has clean, comfortable rooms and a very helpful staff. The rooftop pool is great--even if you don't swim, it's delightful for sitting and enjoying the view. Nights are a bit noisy, as it's in the... More

Wonderful service and very clean. Right on the Plaza de Coches adjacent to hotel. Awesome coffee granizos and amazing desserts. It was about 90 degrees when we were desperately seeking relief. Great people watching out the big glass doors!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. The location is very convenient-in the heart of the walled city. Our room was good-clean and quiet. The included breakfast was great-cereals, yogurt, cheese, breads, fruit and eggs prepared upon request. The shower was extremely noisy, the safe and hair dryer did not work. Considering decent hotels in Cartagena are very... More

I recently returned from Colombia, having traveled with Gate 1 on one of their Discovery Tours. The tour was fantastic. There were 16 travelers in the group and our guide was Juan David Camacho. Juan was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable about his country and was so enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge with the group. All of the hotels were... More

Stayed here during the wkd while traveling for business throughout Colombia, and i am glad i did. Beautiful town, safe going out at night, and the hotel strategically located: clean, updated rooms, friendly and efficient service (David and Katrine), yummy and generous breakfast, paid COP 243000 per night. Overall GREAT VALUE and would stay here again. Enjoy:)

Located in the heart of "ciudad amurallada", this hotel is an AMAZING deal. Excellent location: close to banks, taxis and all the charming of the old city. Very kind staff: the receptionist even called a hair stylist to come to the hotel to make our hairs for a wedding party at an affordable price! Very good breakfast (mix of international... More
