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

Located within the "ciudad amurallada", this small but charming colonial hotel offers spacious comfortable and adorable-looking rooms (several count with a balcony equipped with a table and chairs). It's a pleasure to spend time at the hotel patio or to have breakfast outdoors. The setting is fantastic. So is the staff, always willing to assist and make your stay as... More

Outstanding experience. Service - Not just friendly and prompt, but over-the-top helpful and thoughtful. Offering us a drink as we arrived... bringing us lemonade and towels while we sat by the pool... taking the time to present the room and explain how the safe works, etc etc... We were travelling with a baby and the staff could not have been... More

We have just left Las Carretas. I can only endorse all the wonderful reports from the other Trip Advisor reviews. As well as everything being absolutely perfect, the staff are a delight. Polite, discreet, helpful in all areas. Well done Las Carretas. If we return to Colombia, we will definitely stay with you - and what better endorsement is there... More

This was a nice place to wind down my trip. The staff was attentive and the breakfast outstanding. The pool was a bonus and the rooms were nicely kept. It is right in the middle of the Old City- next to the clock tower.

Very well located. Close to everything. Hotel is in the centre of the Old City. If you really want to feel in Cartagena, I would recommend to stay in the Old City. There are other areas that are more modern like Boca Grande. Staff was very helpful, they went the extra mile. Amenities and hotel in general was awesome. It... More

Las Carretas Hotel is an economical gem in the centre of the old city in Cartagena. Recently renovated reflecting a high standard of quality, the architecture is reminiscent of the colonial past that Cartagena is famous for. My sister and I found this small hotel to be impeccably clean with beautiful interior design that allows an abundance of natural light,... More

what a beautiful hotel. Great location. Opposite salsa dance studio if you fancy lessons. Staff lovely and super helpful, especially Karen who couldn't do enough for us. Delicious fresh fruit as part of breakfast and yummy hot chocolate. Dip pool was perfect to cool down after a busy day walking. Nice little cafe next door. Amazing ceviche at cuzco restaurant...
