The Hotel Las Carretas was everything we had hoped. It is in a great location inside the old city walls and close to all the action. The room was clean and comfortable. Not very large but not cramped. The balcony over the street is amazing and allows bird's eye observation of the craziness of Cartagena. The breakfast is great. Options... More

I loved our stay at the Boutique Las Carretas. - location is steps away from the Clock Tower so it's really easy to get around in the walled city and outside as well. - staff is very courteous, clean and capable. Check in and out was a breeze - our room was spacious, bathroom was remodeled, provided hotel toiletries were... More

The atrium garden area is peaceful and great to sit and eat and relax. there is a small pool that is a nice escape in the city. The staff is great and friendly... More

I just returned from my first visit to Cartagena and it was terrific! I stayed in Hotel Las Carretas with my parents who were visiting from the United States. We were so pleased with our stay at the hotel. The location was perfect, inside the walled city, just one block from the Torre Reloj. The hotel itself was small but... More

Hotel Boutique las Carretas was exactly as advertised - a boutique hotel in the heart of Cartagena. The staff was very kind and catered to our needs, and offered great restaurant recommendations. I would stay here again if I were to visit this lovely place again.

Excellent breakfast, nice staff - thank you to Karen & Diana. Great location. To the person who wrote 'you enter thru a dirty old door', maybe have a look at the door and see its history and beauty, its not a glass revolving Las Vegas style door, and its located on one of the main though fares where the horse...

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.

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
