We went for my son's wedding and family and friends rented 9 rooms and spent 7 days at Las Carretas. We could not have stayed at a nicer hotel. The staff were wonderful---in short order we were treated like family. The staff went out or their way to make our stay and our time in Cartagena an experience to be... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. It is a small hotel but offers great service and staff. The staff were very friendly, gave suggestions for places to eat and were welcoming. The location couldn't get any better. It's in the middle of the center and close to everything. I highly recommend this hotel!

I found this hotel through an online search while looking for an affordable hotel in the old city for a block of 10 rooms during my wedding week- not an easy task when you are also looking for location, high quality and service!! I contacted the hotel directly and for 4 months went back and forth with them while deciding... More

I got my parents a trip to Cartagena de Indias for their 60th birthday. I booked this hotel online and told the manager that it was a present for my parents. She asked the date of their birthday so she could prepare a surprise for them. When they arrived, there was a cake and birthday decoration in their room. They... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights during a week-long stay in Colombia. This hotel is absolutely adorable, and a great deal considering you get a free breakfast, a beautiful courtyard and great rooftop deck/pool. The staff was lovely, and very helpful (even considering my broken spanglish). They helped us book a reservation with a guide to the... More

First, forget the person that wrote the review below... I was here during the same time and I am still here. The absolute only thing that this person got right is that there was a young child here, and did cry at breakfast. But not long at all, and the staff quickly came and occupied the child so everyone else... More

We stayed here as part of a holiday to Colombia organised by a UK tour operator. having read the trip advisor reviews that hotel les carretas was a "boutique, family run hotel full of charm" I felt reassured it wouldn't be a disaster. Sadly this was the case. The hotel is on a dark passage near the beginning of the... More

We chose this location for proximity to the convention centre and within the walls of the old city. The choice was perfect - friendly staff, clean, comfortable and quiet. A five minute walk to the Convention centre and felt very safe at any time of the day or night. My wife took a tour of the city on her own... More

We recently stayed at the Boutique las Carretas and we had a fantastic time. Adriana and Yarlenis are fantastic. They took care of everything we needed. They were very kind and professional. This hotel is so clean, you could lick off the floor. They have WiFi in the hotel, its pretty good, depends on your location though so sometimes you... More
