Perfect place to enjoy with family and a group of friends. Maria and Isolina are awesome and take excellent care of customers. I would love to go back! There are only three rooms. I stayed at the smallest one, but I would recommend to stay in one of the bigger rooms.

Me and my girlfriend stayed for 3 days in two different rooms, they were both fantastic and the services provided before and during the stay was outstanding! I would most certainly recommend the nice and small but luxurious hotel to all my friends and family going to Cartagena! It's a very private and romantic hotel worth all the money! Absolutely...

Very nice hotel. Old class. Polite and service minded staff. Nice breakfast. Clean room. We staid for two nights. The only drawback was the payment: One day prior to arrival I received an email requesting me to send my credit card details by email. Naturally I rejected this as it is not recommended by the credit card companies (using non-secure... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is in a great location in gethsemani round the corner from a lively square and perfect for exploring the city on foot. That does mean it can be a little noisy at the weekend. The staff were very friendly and made a great breakfast each day. There is a nice little roof terrace... More

This is more a charming B&B than a real hotel. It is an colonial house with 3 rooms only. All is well furnished in old style. The room and the bathroom were large and comfortable and on the roof there is a nice relaxing area with a very small but refreshing pool. The local staff is very friendy despite they... More

Wonderful boutique in Getsemani very central to everything. Casa is beautiful on the inside, very good for a Colombian experience (if traveling from abroad). I stayed here two nights and was happy with my choice. I know only basic spanish and had no trouble communicating while traveling alone, the staff speaks limited english. There are only three rooms, small staff... More

The place for a double bed and that is all. The neighberhood is very noisy Beware water bottles are not included... More

We loved this hotel, it feels more like a home rather than a hotel. It is a bit hard to find if you are a first time visitor to cartagena, especially sunce the hotel doesnt have a sign outside. The staff is super friendly, the breakfast delicious and the upstairs pool even though is small..its perfect to cool off. During... More

First i have to say that we usually stay in places for around 100-120 Eur per double per night as we want some comfort. We stayed the bigger sumatra room, which is one of the three rooms in casa el carreterro. My resume: Comparing the 4 boutique hotels we've stayed in at santa marta (1), taganga (1) and cartagena (2),... More
