Stayed here one week. My room was on the 11th floor facing the beach, so it was nice to have a view when coming to relax after the meetings, which were held right there. The room was nicely decorated and kept clean by the hotel staff. They were very friendly and went their way to meet your needs. My only... More

The almirante hotel in Cartagena is not pretensious of what they have to offer to the business tourism! Strategically located the hotel brings a nice view of downtown after the 8th floor. Rooms are comfortable, very well decorated. The pool and the gym are very well equiped and service supported. If you are coming for business the almirante hotel is... More
