Contrary to online photos, room was very tiny, windowless, narrow double bed, very small bathroom.Staff was indifferent. And particularly, apumping noise of a nearby bar or club all night. Avoid at all cost.

This hotel looks great online. It does have a good location in the heart of the old town. But it fails to deliver. The website seems to show the best room in the hotel. We booked a "superior" room and it was very boxy/dark. Yes, it had what was on the website but the bare standards. The bathroom was windowless... More

Good day Mr Jorge, we are sorry that the space of his room has not been of his pleasure, however, comment to him that we count with another type of room a bit wide and enclosed mas with balconies towards the street. We invite him to reserve Premium Suite in his next demurrage! More

I stayed in Badillo during my recent trip to Cartagena. The hotel is clean and nicely laid out. it's a smaller hotel so no noisy comings and goings. The room was airy and comfortable and I enjoyed the continental style breakfast on 2 of the 5 mornings I stayed there. There's also a small pool to cool off in after... More

Fully recomend cartagena as a destination and this hotel to stay while you are there. Specially if you plan is to wonder around and be near most the touristic attraction. Theis hotel is 4 blocks away from the port where you can take the boats to the rosario islands. The rooms are a bit dark but considering the cost they... More

we had a great time, the rooms were small but cozy. And loved the spanish patio and friendly staff. I will go back there definitively. The location is superb close to everything in the old town,restaurants,bars, and a nearby park. There is galery with cool stuff in and quite affordable

A very nice style and decoration, good rooms, small bathrooms. The social areas arent many, an although the pool is small is not easy to find one in the old city. The breakfast is good. The location is excellent, next to a very exiting, active and young plaza.

Very bad in all aspects. How to lie with photos in all essence. The reality doesn't correspond to what you see on reservation websites. Service is beyond mediocre and when there was a general power failure, they didn't care to provide a candle to the guests. Avoid it at all cost.

We recently staying in Cartegana during Santa Semana, and stayed two nights at this hotel, along with our friends. Both rooms were quite clean, with basic amenities like TV and AC, but nothing fancy. It has a tiny swimming pool in the lobby, only big enough to entertain children really, but adults appeared to enjoy dipping their feet in it.... More
