This is a little gem of a hotel. The rooms are spotless, quiet, cool and really big. We had a large quad room which was perfect for our family of 5. A delicious breakfast of eggs, bread, juice and fruit was included. The location of the hotel is great on a quiet street walking distance from the old city. The... More

This lovely small place was clean and quiet with very good AC - essential in this heat. It's close to restaurants and bars and only a 10 minute walk to the old town. Breakfast was fruit, toast and eggs - very standard for South America. A great find - book with confidence.

Great value hotel hidden away in fascinating area. We loved exploring the colourful streets with their street art and watching locals open up their homes in the hot evenings. Less than 5 mins to super Club Havana bar with live music. Easy walking to old city but we were glad we didn't stay in that more touristy area. Casa Carmen... More

This place is really a fantastic place to stay in Cartagena, located in Getsemani just outside the Old City. I booked directly with the hotel and got a 15% discount - so my private room with breakfast was only $37 USD/night! It on a quiet street and you can walk everywhere you need to go in Cartagena! Cafe Havana is... More

We were initially happy with Casa Carmen, but several things happened that made us very unhappy. We booked a family room for a week for 2 adults and 2 children. On the second to last night of our stay, we were informed that we had to pay an additional charge because of the age of one of our kids. This... More

Spent 3 nights at Hotel Casa Carmen this past week and had a great time. Very accommodating staff --> Maria at the front desk is super helpful at letting you know about what to do and where to eat. When there was a miscommunication with the scheduling and we were given a room with only 1 bed, they rectified the... More

We spent four enjoyable nights at this quiet, friendly, small hotel. Staff was very helpful, giving good advice about where to eat and what to see. Easy walk to tourist attractions within walled portion of city. Very reasonably priced. Cartagena is warm so unheated, lukewarm water in shower was not so bad, but we would have preferred warmer water.

We loved this place. It's on a side street right close to some nice restaurants and bars. The rooftop deck was a great spot to take some beers and get some sun with a view of the whole city. Our room was large and clean and the ac worked great. The price for this place was very good compared to... More
