I had transferred from the Hilton after a long-term stay there, and I was very sad about the downgrade when I first arrived at the Almirante.... More

The rooms are outdated. I chose to turn of the air condition and the started to drip from the ceiling. They told that they couldn't fix that. The bathroom was really old. The towels had a lot of stains and really poor quality. Even the manager acknowledged that, he told me that they were going to change those and the... More

I stayed at this hotel for four nights, having decided to move from a hotel in Cartagena city itself. where we had spent one night kept awake by the local and vacationing resellers.

The Almirante Hotel in Cartagena is a nice option to be near to the beach. One good point is the clean. In my opinion 5 star is too much!. Is a nice hotel but to be considered a 5 star have to improve a lot. The location is exceptional in front of beach, but It would be nice to have... More

The pool has a nice view but gets sun only late in the afternoon making it extremely cold. We were told it is heated but the have trouble with the heat. Our children couldn't use it.... More

I stayed at the hotel during four days. Booked the "ocean view" suite, but be aware that it is in fact a very "partial" and limited view of the beach thru a small window. Rooms are very average, decor has its years now, and need some small repairs and basic maintenance. Gym is decent, but I did not like the... More
