This small hotel (3 rooms) is charming and the 2 ladies are very nice. Breakfast is great BUT: The hotel is a little far away from the center One of the 3 rooms is very very small, too small. 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

We loved our stay at this warm and beautiful hotel. The best part of all was the staff, that was always ready to please us - Risolina, Maria and Luis were more than nice to us. Breakfast was delicious...

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

One of the most beautiful rooms I have ever stayed in (we had the Bali room)!! Truely lovely staff who couldn't do enough for us and lovely rooftop pool to cool off in. Good location within Getsemani and easy walking distance to the old walled city.

A beautiful cozy boutique hotel located right at the heart of Getsemani. Steps away from the hotel is the lively Trinidad Square frequently filled by local patrons, a great salsa dancing club, and hip bars and delicious restaurants. The Old Town of Cartagena is just ten minutes walk. The decor of the hotel exudes styles, practicality, and the rich flavor... More

This was a nice house, we really enjoyed our stay! It felt like we were the only guests, even though there were 2 other couples staying in the 3 bedroom house. The two women who cooked and cleaned the rooms were wonderful. The neighborhood was fun to explore- trinidad plaza was a good, close spot to grab drinks at night... More

We really enjoyed staying here; the staff were lovely, there's only 3 rooms so very little noise from other guests (while we were there anyway), and we mostly had the roof-top terrace to ourselves which was perfect to retreat from the heat and hectic bustle of the Old Town in the afternoons. Lots happening every evening in the Plaza nearby... More
