I really enjoyed the spacious clean rooms, appropriate decor, balcony, and pool, but I think my favorite part was the breakfast served in the lovely courtyard! The location in the Old City was perfect for getting around and the staff was very nice. The taxi from the airport found it no problem (cheaper than airport shuttle from hotel.) It was... More

I stayed at Las Carretas for two nights in August 2015. The Hotel is immaculate and centrally located inside the Walled City. You are close to restaurants, banks/atm machines, plazas, nightlife, shopping and museums. The rooms are very clean, air conditioned and reasonably priced. I've been to Cartagena four times in the last six years and I was very pleased... More

Very nice hotel. Enjoyed our stay. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. Bathroom was a little small. The staff was very helpful and willing to help us with anything we needed! Breakfast in the center courtyard was tasty and plentiful. The pool is tiny, but good enough for a refreshing dip. Location is perfect!

First and foremost, the staff at this hotel are the best I have encountered in recent memory. Kind, helpful, informative, attentive but not intrusive. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of everything and it is beautiful building brought back to life in respect of the architecture and location of the property. We felt transported back in time, but... More

My husband and I can't say enough about this amazing place. The hotel has an exceptional staff led by the professional, knowledgeable and friendly Adriana Mendoza who went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met during our stay. The owner, who was on-site daily, was very friendly and attentive to us as well. Our room... More

We spent 5 nights at Las Carretas at the end of May. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. The staff was great. Very friendly and helpful. They helped us plan our excursions and provided recommendations on places to eat. The breakfast was also great. I loved having a fresh omelet every morning. We were in room 203... More

My fiance and I absolutely loved this hotel. Adriana manages the front desk and she was absolutely outstanding. The hotel is located just a few hundred feet from the historical clock tower in the walled city. You should try to get a room on the front of the hotel so you can enjoy a patio looking over the street. The... More

Hotel Las Carretas consists of the two upper levels of a remodeled former private residence. The lay-out is quite similar to a Moroccan Riad, where life centers around an interior open-sky courtyard, which is surrounded by stone arches, providing shaded loggias and giving access to some of the guest rooms located on the lower floor. The rooms are relatively small... More
