This place was beautiful and at a great price. It is located next to one of the housed of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and surrounded by 3 great restaurants (La cevicheria, Argentina and Bocca Tratoria). It is in a calm area so you will be able to sleep and in walking distance from plazas and la muralla. We only spent a... More

My wife and I stayed there last Saturday and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. To begin with, don't be fooled by the nice photographs on their web page -the facade photo is pretty much the building next door. The room we stayed in smelled terrible, was humid and there was just a small internal window which faced to another... More

Although is a beautiful place with an old and modern structure I consider Is really really small, it was a little bit uncomfortable for us and the price is too high for the small rooms. What we really liked the most was the bathroom with hot water that was perfect!

As someone who lives in Colombia and spends enormous amounts of time in Cartagena I know just about every hotel. This is a cute little B&B with rooms the size of a closet (don't let the pictures fool you). None have windows to the outdoors so you are living in a closet. But if you don't mind this then you...

This hotel is in a nice location in Cartagena, but the Management should consider Maintaining the hotel in a good condition because they look that they do not spend money on it. Our room was ok, but it had a water leak in the bathroom on the ceiling and they didn't even consider fixing it. I was afraid to come... More

This was a little gem that we stayed in for one night, in the heart of the walled city. We received a really warm welcome from an English speaking receptionist and we were delighted with our room (104). The decor was fab, we really felt that it had a special something. It was really quirky and unique. The shower was... More

I got there with a couple of friends for vacations thanks to friend of ours who told us and it was just great. Beautiful rooms, very well located (near everything), good prices and excellent service. I recommend it to everyone who's going to CTG.

We booked a room based on the pictures and the rating showed at different webpages. Unfortunately, the hotel is not even close of the photos. My girlfriend and I stayed in room extremely small located the first floor with a wall division between the toilet and the bedroom. I did not have the expected privacy to go to the restroom....

I could even recommend this little hotel, but it so poorly managed that makes staying here a nightmare. Awful service, good location and average breakfast. Owner should think about hiring somebody else.
