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...

All in all, I was a bit disappointed with the Hotel Boutique las Carretas. It is certainly very clean, has a working AC (essential in hot Cartagena) and even a small swimming pool on the roof level. Generally, I prefer small hotels to big anonymous ones. However, here the general feeling is that of lack of space. My room (#... More

This hotel is located in a great colonial building right in the middle of the happening spot in Cartagena. The rooftop pool is golden for refreshment from the heat. Service is impeccable and the breakfast delicious. Modestly priced when considering the general price level in Cartagena. Highly recommended. Ask for rooms not facing the street.

We stayed 3 nights and the hotel was in a perfect location to walk the city. The staff were so helpful throughout our stay ( Karen worked nonstop and was so friendly). Breakfast was excellent, the room was comfortable and there were lots of restaurants nearby. Our ATM card did not work and the hotel helped us get pesos as... More

Congratulations TripAdvisor Reader for finding the BEST boutique hotel in all of Cartegena. It is a perfect oasis from the busy city and you'll love coming "home" to Las Carretas. The hotel is beautiful, charming, super clean, and in a perfect location. With the FULL breakfast included it's an amazing price as well. We stayed 6 nights, and as first... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights in Las Carretas Hotel Boutique, and we loved it! The hotel is very well located, in a narrow tiny street like all the streets in Cartagena. Our room was facing the street and was spacious and clean, the toilet was a bit small but it was not a problem for us. The staff... More
