I was traveling with a group of friends, and we reserved three rooms for a total of 5 nights. The breakfast was plentiful, the hotel easy to find, and the neighborhood delightful. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

We stayed five nights here. It's a lovely old colonial house in Getsemani, an area we really liked staying in. The hostel is round the corner from Calle Media Luna where lots of bars are and only a 10 minute walk to the walled old city. The rooms and beds are comfortable. The shower is cool (not freezing cold), which... More

the tip: unless you want to pay more than 5 times the usual taxi fare from the airport, do not take their airport-hotel transfer. about the location: outside can be kind of scary on the weekends because of the intense nightlife.

This is a very small hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff and is in a really good location. The roof top terrace is nice place to have a drink. The breakfast is simple but is fine to start your day. We stayed there at the beginning and the end of our trip. The first room was upstairs in the... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at beautiful Casa Carmen and would like to thank all of the staff. The building itself is gorgeous and quaint. Despite other reviews on here we found it to be well located, just off the busier road Media Lunar and our stay was not affected by any noise. Our room was also ground... More

I loved Casa Carmen Hotel. It was located really close to the main square in the ancient city and in a really pretty street. Our room was in the first floor, it was super clean and confortable. I'd also recommend to take the breakfast here because it's included! and it was delicious.

We actually never got to stay here. We booked our room four months in advance on Expedia and we were to pay when we arrived. When we got there the front desk lady said our room wouldn't be ready for a couple of hours, which was fine so we left our stuff there and then returned when it was suppose... More

Super clean, super friendly, super location! What more could you ask for? The staff were amazing with answering any questions. The location is on a side street but this makes you feel a part of the neighbourhood which is fantastic! My room was huge and everything worked properly. Can't say enough how really clean and comfortable this was. If ever... More

We were so excited to return to Cartagena and wanted to explore Cartagena's Getsemani neighborhood, so Casa Carmen was ideal! It's a very quiet property, their patio is an oasis, the breakfasts were just lovely, staff knowledgeable & pleasant, and we loved our room. One evening we purchased a bottle of wine and enjoyed happy hour on the hotel-top terrace... More
